This is the story of Maggie Gomez — an unwed, unskilled mother of a sickly daughter. She lives a hardscrabble life on the underside of Las Vegas. As her daughter’s health deteriorates, Maggie's need for money for an operation skyrockets. Maggie was vulnerable and defeated early in life. Her long-suppressed strength blossoms and Maggie becomes “La Femme Nikita”. As Maggie gets more involved with her loan shark boss and his crew, her world begins to spiral out of control. Her simultaneous involvement with a gangster and the detective investigating him turns her life into a soap opera of emotions. She must figure out how to escape her under- world life, protect her daughter, and live happily ever after.
Oh boy. What can I say about this book?...
This was a struggle. I finished it in less than an hour and, honestly, I didn't love it. I'm sad! I hate giving bad reviews. I really do!
The plot wasn't bad. Seriously, this had the potential of being a really good book. However, the execution just wasn't there for me.
I really don't have much to say about this book, unfortunately. It just wasn't for me.
