FML is becoming Avery's motto. Just when she doesn't think things could get any worse, they do. When her car stalls out at a busy intersection and she gets out to check under the hood, a guy steals her car. Armed with a dress and a pair of Chucks, Avery runs after the thief. When a hot stranger offers to help, she can't say no. That's how Avery meets Sean Ferro, the totally sexy, totally damaged guy with more secrets than she has time for.
Avery doesn't have time for anything anymore. Her is life falling apart and it's not just the car. It's everything, and it doesn't matter how tightly she tries to hold on, there's nothing left to hold on to. With the sudden death of her parents, it's only a matter of months until Avery's shot at college is gone, and she's living in a cardboard box. Other students have their families to rely on when things get bad. Avery has no one.
But there's one option, one incredibly sexy, morally devoid, option. If Avery takes a job as a call girl, one guy could save her. One client. One time. She just has to say yes.
The Arrangement is a debut for The Arrangement short story series. These are incredibly short story that just give you a brief glimpse at the story before jumping to the next book. Avery is just your average girl with a terrible past. Being that the short stories are so short it is not clear what all her past entails, but it is evident that she is completely alone. No family and very few friends all while trying to keep a ridiculously outlandish scholarship, and a job. She is finding herself rapidly nearing rock bottom when she coincidentally has an encounter with on drop dead gorgeous biker that helps her rescue her stolen car. When life becomes to much she finds herself with a very unlikely job opportunity, and after a battle of morals and integrity she find she has no where to turn. But can she live with this decision? As I said previously this was a very short story, so it just manages to get your feet wet. I can honestly say that it has captivated me, so I will be starting book two immediately. Although, until I know more it is very difficult to rate and review this small of a story. The author has written a wonderful section here that grasps you, and forces you to sympathize and reevaluate the situation personally.
