Spotlight Promotion: Strings

Hello everyone!!

Today I'm doing something new. Sometimes authors or their agents e-mail me with requests, but I'm not too interested in the books or I just don't have the time to read them. However, I know that everyone is into different stuff and it wouldn't be fair of me to not let y'all know that these books exist if you ARE interested or have the time to check them out. Posts like these are what I'm calling Spotlight Promotion. This means that the post isn't a review, but that you'll get a summary and an image of a book with links to get more information or to purchase it. Hopefully some of y'all are interested in giving these books a shot since I can't. If you do, you can leave your thoughts in the comments, as well as any questions you may have. Also, feel free to e-mail me or message me through The Real World According To Sam's facebook page about these highlighted books if you read them or any other book you might be interested in me reviewing.

About the book:
After four years of turning tricks in a mob-run New York brothel to pay off a debt, Nina is ready to go back to a quiet life in Iowa. Just one more client and the whole nightmare will be behind her, but this last trick turns into a battle for her soul. Meanwhile, the brothel’s sadistic Madam has been hiding away money in order to move up in her family’s organization, and she only wants the half million dollars the reclusive millionaire pays for the girls. But her driver Ramón has other ideas, making off with the money left behind when Nina’s last trick goes unexpectedly awry. The theft comes at a great cost to the Madam, setting off a horrific chain of events that changes them all. The hooker. The driver. The Madam. All of them on a collision course to a place where only madness holds sway.
