Broken Girl by Gretchen de la O
My name is ROSE NEWTON, and I sell my body on the streets of San Francisco. I’m what you call society's dirty little secret. On the outside, I'm in control, the woman who makes her own rules and gives nothing away for free. Inside, I’m broken and numb. Torn and shattered by my past, my life is nothing more than the lost fragments of what's left of me. SHANE WEST represents everything that’s foreign to me. He’s brave, kind, funny, gorgeous and persistent. When fate brings us face to face, an undeniable attraction blazes between us. He becomes the constant I've never had and the only man I'll ever trust. There is nothing simple about falling in love when you're keeping a secret like mine. *Reader's discretion advised.

He drove past me in the most beautiful midnight black Maserati. Low to the ground, those big, chrome-rimmed wheels oozed sex as they rolled to a stop then backed up next to me. I’d never forget—it was sexy as all hell when the dark passenger’s side window rolled down and he leaned across to talk to me. His slate-blue eyes met mine, and I knew, at that moment, he wasn’t going to ask me for directions.
“EXCUSE ME, I’M new in town, and I seem to be lost,” he says as his eyes leave mine and track down my legs and back up. His smile broadens before he chews the corner of his bottom lip.
“Well, hello, New-In-Town, sorry to hear you’re lost. Maybe I can help you. What are you looking for?” I say, leaning down and resting my forearms across the window jamb of his Maserati.
His eyes draw to my heaving tits, and his smile grows broad before he runs his hands around his steering wheel. His Rolex tumbles across his wrist, and the smell of his sexy cologne takes a stroll through my body.
His tongue wets his nice full lips before he takes an exaggerated swallow. “I’m looking for someone who can help me find my way around this beautiful town.”
I smile, shifting my hips, causing my tits to bounce, and his eyes pause on my chest. “Well, I’m pretty versed in the points of interest in this town. Seeing that you are new and all, I can even hook you up with a discount on entertainment.”
“I guess we should talk about how much you think this entertainment might set me back?”
I see the desire in his eyes, the animalistic draw he has to my skin. The attraction isn’t a problem, and seeing we both want the same thing, I figure upping my regular fee isn’t gonna break his bank. Either he’ll go for it or haggle me down a couple bucks. One thing I know for sure—I ain’t gonna let him get away. Guys like this are rare and don’t just show up looking for a good time.
I drag my hands across the edge of the door, tracing the rubber window seal, before I step back and make sure he sees everything I have to offer. “Entertainment around here is two hundred fifty bones every half hour.”
He reaches over and pushes the passenger’s door open. “Okay, Miss …?”
“Rose,” I say as I drop into his Maserati.
“Rose, beautiful. Miss Rose, that sounds perfect. I’m going to really enjoy getting to know this town,” he growls as he runs his lengthy fingers across my knee and up to the edge of my daisy dukes. Goose bumps rise on the back of my neck.
