Too Much to Lose by Samantha Holt

Too Much to LoseToo Much to Lose by Samantha Holt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a very powerful and well plotted story.

Jess had a lot of things happen to her, bad things, and because of that she made some really bad choices in life. She ended up a porn star.

Moving on with her life and wanting to do better she gets a new job, new identity, new image as someone was chasing her tail. Bad things could happen to Jess!

Her Uncle believes she has stolen from him so hires someone to find her. His name is Hunter.

I won't divulge anymore of the twists in this story, but I will say that Hunter and Jess attraction was immediate.

I love the bit where Jess says " I like you Hunter" to which Hunter replies " I don't know why Jess, but I can't stop thinking about you"
Hunter was a ladies man but with Jess he had to be honest, he couldn't be any other way.
She doesn't of course know that Hunter is a PI and hired by her Uncle.

When things come out about each others lives Hunter is now in doubt as to if her Uncle has actually told him the truth.

And why did Jess run away, who was she running from?
He finds out from Jess that someone is trying to kill her.

The story does an about turn.


I enjoyed the story a lot, however, it could have picked up pace better/faster in some places as I felt it dragged just a little.

I still thinks it deserves a 4 star though.


Have you ever been so desperate you made a decision that would haunt you forever?

Jess has.

She became a porn star.

Jess is on the run from her past. She has no friends, no life. She tries to forget everything that happened to her all those years ago. After changing her image, leaving her home and getting a new job, she’s determined it won’t happen again. If that means never being close to anyone ever again, the so be it.

If only Hunter O’Reilly didn’t make her wish things could be different. Hunter needs this job. After being screwed over by his partner—make that ex-partner—his investigation business is on the line. Already in debt, he eagerly takes on the job of finding some stolen money at triple his going rate. He expects problems at that price. But he doesn’t expect to fall for her.

However, no job is ever that simple. When he’s forced to spend more time with her, the lines between business and pleasure are blurred. And once Jess’s life comes under threat, they have to make a decision, can they both overcome Jess’s past?
