CAUTION: Big Sky is very dark and contains scenes of a non-consensual nature.
Veronica Cason lives in a small apartment with no clear view of the sky. It’s uncertain which might crush her first: her debt or the buildings squeezed in so tight that they surround her like ominous sentinels. She can’t breathe in the city. Her success is a lie, and her debt is coming to collect her—unless someone else gets there first.
When a stranger offers her a job at a ranch, it feels like salvation, but it could also mean her death if his motives aren’t pure. Which door has the tiger behind it? The claustrophobia of the city or ranch life under an open sky?
As a fan of Comfort Food, I could not wait to read more of Ms. Thomas’ work. This book did not disappoint. Veronica is taken against her will from her life in the city to the ranch of Luke Granger. He believes he is giving her a better life by offering work, shelter, food and oh yeah, incredibly erotic sex. There are scenes in this book that will stay with me for a very, very long time, and that is why I love this author so much.
Who hurt you?”
“Oh, I haven’t hurt you yet.”
If non-consensual and group sex bother you, do not read this book. If you like to be challenged; love very erotic stories; and don’t like everything wrapped up neatly in a little bow, then Big Sky is for you.
“Okay, I’ll do what you want.”
He laughed. “That was never in question, princess. The only question was would it be the easy way or the hard way? I’ve broken horses. I have never ending patience with women.”
I like my characters a little dark and twisted. Luke and Veronica do not disappoint.
