    One thought on “Throwaway

    1. Sylvain Reynard on said:

      This was a quick but enjoyable read, with interesting characters, action sequences, references to the legends surrounding a figure from the Old West, and redemption. The female lead inspired respect and admiration and the story itself shone a light on subjects many people avoid - prostitution, human trafficking and slavery, and organized crime. But the author, Mrs. Huffman, didn't treat the dark topics as mires in which to wallow, nor did she glorify them. I thought she did a good job of showing [...]

      Color me amazed. This book has a well-developed plot and characters, a great background settings, some history and a strong heroine. It's told in 3rd person POV but from the eyes of the main character. It's not often that I come across a romance-suspense novel that has me captivated from the start. Our heroine, Jessie, is a working girl in St. Louis, in the clutches of her pimp with no hopes of ever getting out of her enslavement. She knows this and still maintains a kind heart and a positive sp [...]

      I read this book because it had good reviews; however, I cannot rate it as well.The main character, Jessie, is introduced as a prostitute wanting freedom from her pimp Spence. She has been with Spence since she was released from the foster care system,mainly because she feels she has no where to go. Jessie lacks confidence and feels that she is her title "Whore."She meets a cop who is trying to gather information about Spence's Mofia connections. Huffman portrays Jessie and Gabe's love as "love [...]

      Nice idea but badly executed. Human trafficking is portrayed very primitevely and unrealisticaly. Being able to stash away so much money and on top not having it stolen(from under a matress!) over fourteen years is ridiculous. And what more this girl had so much free time and liberty of movement. Having a night or two off in a week, usually it is more like four or five days in a month. So she worked all night and then she went to yoga in the morning really? When did she sleep? Having survived in [...]

      I really didn't think I would like this book when I began reading it. It was free from B&N for the Nook and had decent reviews, so I figured I'd give it a shot. The character development wasn't great, the story moved fast, lacked substance and was pretty predictable. Having said that, I did like reading it and wouldn't steer you away from it IF you just wanted something to read to kill time. It's not the kind of book you read more than once, but I don't feel like I wasted time reading it. I [...]

      I don't know what to say about this at all. To use one of the authors own sentences "it's Like she watched Pretty Woman too many times" Unfortunately this was just not a good book! While the storyline had promise, the characters weren't believable. The story moved too fast, it didn't give room for brand new relationships, such as this one, any room to grow or develop in anyway at all. First chapter Jessie and Gabe met, the next they were behaving as if they had been in a relationship for a consi [...]

      I was completely surprised by how much I enjoyed this book.The coolest part: the heroine saves herself. That's not usually a given in a romantic suspense novel. (I don't think this book neatly fits into the romantic suspense genre--it's first-person POV, and the heroine's journey is the most important aspect of the story--but the suspense is the major aspect of the external plot.) Usually in RS, if there's a burly military cop guy hero, he's usually doing the action hero stuff. Not so in this st [...]

      I downloaded this book as a freebie (special offer) based on the synopsis of Jessie Jones, a prostitute under the control of a pimp, Spence, who meets undercover cop Gabe who gives her an idea of a different future. Heather Huffman wrote this book to throw a spotlight on the "Throwaway" teens who are abandoned by the foster care system at 18 to somehow try to make their own way in the world.I found Jessie to be loveable character - she doesn't apologise for her profession, feeling that she had [...]

      I read this book as I was interested in Heather Huffman's charity work, and this book was recommended.It's an enjoyable and quick read, despite the fact that it discusses the harsh reality of those less unfortunate - subject to human trafficking, prostitution and organized crime, as it gracefully illuminates the reader to their world without it seeming too harsh or traumatic. To Heather Huffman's characters, it's a way of life they've adapted to and accepted without being given too much of a cho [...]

      I'm always happy when I come across a free book that has a lot of good reviews. I admit that when I am looking for a new book to read I usually skim through the bad reviews first to get an idea of why people didn't like a book, then I check out some of the good ones. I found with this book a big complaint was that the setting wasn't realistic, wasn't very true to life. The only thing I say to that is it's a romance novel, not an exposè on how life is on the streets. It's not based on a true sto [...]

      The main character, Jessie, has had a rough life being a throwaway. Wehn she turned 18, she was released from foster care and had no place to go. Spincer became her pimp and helped her survive. One night while she's working with her friend Harmony, a man named Gabe catches her eye. Gabe changes her life in many ways that she could never imagine. After Jessie is released from this life style, she goes on a mission to help other kids coming out of foster care with no place to go.I liked the book b [...]

    13. Allison on said:

      Quite spectacularly not good. The main characters talk to each other like children, when they're meant to be 30-something adults with real life experience - Jessie actually calls Gabe a big, fat jerk during arguments on 2 separate occasions, and not in an ironic way. The pacing is really odd, with some chapters representing hours and some swiftly chronicling the passage of months. Everything happens unrealistically quickly, with Jessie and Gabe meeting one day, escaping away for a weekend togeth [...]

    14. Amber on said:

      A cute story. It was a freebie/indie read and it felt it. The other problem I had was that it wasn't explicit (sexually) which brought up a lot of questions with the plot itself. I'm not sure it made sense to deal with such sexual topics (she's a prostitute) without going into some of the specifics, especially when they have ramifications later in the story (ie. she's always on about protection, but then she ends up pregnant, etc). I did appreciate the star-crossed lovers aspect of the story, an [...]

    15. Sienna on said:

      A girl who has been deemed worthless. A cop intending to take her in, only to falter. The problems they must face: The past, the present, the future, friends, and those you love. When you can't have everything, you must choose what you can't live without. I highly recommend this book, especially if you love a little mystery and excitement. The author has painted an old picture and made it new again, making this book one worth every minute you spend reading it.

    16. Kelly Laderoute on said:

      Though not the best book I've ever read, somehow I couldn't put it down. 500 pages went by in a blur. If there were a sequel to this book, I would love to read it.

    17. Melissa on said:

      Great story! Great ending and the epilogue was perfect! I'm a happy camper =)

    18. Kathy on said:

      3.5 for an interesting story with very likable main characters. I added .5 stars for the fact that Throwaway is FREE. I enjoyed this story and hope that others will read this reading bargain.

      Throwaway Hmm where to begin? I've been putting off writing this review because, to be honest, I'm not really sure what I thought of this book, and that can never be a good thingThe first thing that is odd is the main characters profession and setting for the first part of the book. Jessie is a prostitute working for a pimp, however the author approaches this as if her main profession is a supermarket clerk for Tesco's. No mention is made to clients or the seediness or danger of the job early on [...]

      Deep and realHeather hits home on the injustices heaped on the "throwaways"! She paints a real and vivid picture of what really happens to runaways, aged out foster children and victims of sex slavery! Good job!

      I loved the book, the plot, the characters and most definitely the messages that Miss Heather conveyed in the story this is absolutely a must read!!

      Social wrongThe book definitely makes a social commentary as to something that is wrong with our society. Makes you think. Address how to help.

      Cute storyLoved all the St. Louis and MO references. I enjoyed it. Sometimes you just want to read a sweet story about a serious topic.

    24. wanda vahle on said:

      Not a bad storyIt's not a really bad book. I really like books with more depth. The characters aren't deep and the conflicts are too easily solved.

      Book Description- Jessie Jones is living the life--except for the fact that she earns it by working the streets. She's been under pimp Spence's thumb for fourteen years, and she isn't looking to change it. That is, until undercover cop Gabe walks into her life and offers her something she's never had before: a love, a future, a home. But even if Jessie could walk away from Spence, there are darker forces of evil who want her to stay put, or worse, dead. In this romantic suspense, author Heather [...]

      3 Stars - **SPOILERS** Jessie's a hooker who falls in loves with a undercover cop, Gabe. She makes a deal with Gabe's boss to turn informant so she can get out.

      I'm not sure if this book is officially considered "chick lit," but that's how I felt about it. I don't typically read or like chick lit very much, but every now and again it's good to read something lighter and faster, and this is the kind of book that fits that bill. Plus it was free, so no money wasted if it wasn't good. (It's free for the Nook and Kindle.)I was surprised at how much I liked it considering it is (a) chick lit and (b) free. Honestly, it's nothing groundbreaking or earth-shatte [...]

    29. Paula Kramer on said:

      I would put this book into the catagory of the "trashy novel". I see why it was free. The relationship between the prostitute and the cop was just too unbelievable. Characters are shallow and the plot seems to jump from one event to another without any transition. Sorry, I just didn't like it. I do give the author credit for trying to address champion the cause of sexual slavery. If this is your kind of book, then "go for it". Not for me.
