Summary: “Katerina—I need some help. Be a good girl and come over here and I’ll make it worth your while.”
It’s an offer NYC college student Katerina Mills should refuse. But how can she?
A desperate situation….
After ditching her cheating lover (and boss), she’s stuck in dead end temp jobs. Her dad just ditched her mom and his promise to pay Kat’s college tuition bill.
She has two weeks to come up with $14,000 or she’s out of her apartment, out of school, and out of luck.
A dangerous world….
Katerina falls into a job as a “fixer” for New York City’s wealthy and privileged men. They have problems they need “fixed,” quick and on the QT, and they’re willing to pay.
The rules are simple: collect the money, use your contacts, fix the problem.
Kat’s first job is easy: tail a shopaholic socialite wife. But who’s tailing Kat?
Kat’s second job is not so easy: steal a VHS tape hidden in an antique chest. She can’t do it alone. To be a thief, she needs a thief: handsome, reclusive Alexander Winter to be exact.
Kat soon learns the real rules for a fixer: there are no rules, there are no refunds. Get in. Get results. Get gone.
As every step brings her closer to her goal and closer to danger, there’s one rule left for Katerina Mills to learn: once you’re in, there’s no getting out.
This book was a very quick read. While also being a novella, this book is also sectioned off in a short-paragraph-style which I found pleasant and very engaging, considering the genre. The pace is pretty fast, and the writing is easy to comprehend and follow along to. I wouldn’t say that the writing is great, but I did not catch any awkward phrasing, or mistakes.
Due to being a short book, it was difficult to really get a feel for all of the characters, even the main, but this could also be because Katerina is a very closed off person (in which case, she was written effectively).
Otherwise, I would like to say that this is definitely an adult book (right from the start), and should not be read by young teens or children. I would recommend this book to adults who are looking for a quick thriller to read in order to pass the time. I would also recommend it to readers who like a strong female lead, and who enjoy thriller series.
