Review: Unworthy

For this review, I chose Unworthy by Lynne Silver.

I received a copy of the ebook for a honest review of this book.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
Bienvenidos a Miami. Welcome to the hottest party scene in the U.S. Behind all the glitter, hard bodies and sexy drinks, the lives of the hard-partying residents of the 305 aren’t all they seem.

Cat Ross struggles to make ends meet. If she doesn’t scrounge up enough cash for rent and to pay off her brother’s drug dealers, she’ll be sleeping at a shelter, and her beloved brother, Danny, will be in worse trouble.

As Miami’s hottest party promoter, it looks as if Ian Lawrence’s life is fun and games, but partying this hard takes work, and Ian takes business seriously. He wasn’t counting on his former best friend’s little sister, Cat Ross, to come crashing back into his life. She was the one girl who mattered until he messed things up by sleeping with her on her eighteenth birthday, and then running.

As Cat and Ian’s relationship reignites, he wants to protect her by keeping her brother away. But it’s not easy for Cat to choose between her last living family member and the man she’s always loved.

This is the first book in the Worthy series.  It is set in Miami.  I think it has been awhile since I read a book with the setting set in Miami.  Cat Ross is trying to keep herself a float, but it keeps getting harder and harder for her.  She is so close to be homeless.  Life for Cat has been hard for her most of her life.  Her brother is a drug addict and his life is affecting her life.  Ian Lawrence is a hot party promoter, who was good friends with Cat's brother.  They had a hot night together when they were younger.

What I loved about this book is the realness to it.  I can see Cat being poor.  Struggling to make ends meet.  Haven't we all been there at one time or another?  As a reader, I was able to see what life for families and their addicts.  The lies, the danger from the dealers if they don't pay, and the worry of if they will survive.  

If you are looking for a book that hooks you from page one, then this is it!!
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
