Heather Burnside has done it again!! Amazing book from start to finish! What will become of Ruby next?? Thank you netgalley and Aria for letting me read this. Always blown away by this author's books.

Ruby is the 2nd book in ‘The Working Girls Series’ but can easily be read as a stand alone 

Ruby is a character, in every sense of the word and boy does she get up to some things in this book about her!
The book goes from the past to the present and you find out how Ruby ( now running a brothel ) came from very humble beginnings and how from being a prostitute ( where she overcomes many problems ) she is now a success, happy in all aspects of her life
But then the man she help put away for attacking her beat friend  is released and out for revenge,  hot on his heels is a gang leader ( who attacked her when she was a teenager )  demanding protection money and ‘other favours’ and Ruby’s life is turned upside down, she is strong and no one gets the better of her but are the 2 forces combined enough to pull her under?
With the authors usual real life gritty no holds barred way if telling this kind of story, the story leaps from the pages and you run with it as it hurtles towards a terrifying and blood curdling finale
Its no secret I love this authors books but thats because they are so shockingly realistic and character driven, don’t expect a cozy drama but a full on adventure as Ruby fights for her survival
Loved it
10/10

This I believe Ruby is the second in “the working girls” series.  A thoroughly enjoyable story of Trina a young girl wanting to break away from her stifling family and abusive father only to turn to prostitution to fund her escape.

Many thanks to the publishers and netgalley for the advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.

Loved this book great next installment in the working girls series, my only grumble was the ending, a very rapid abrupt finish, I actually thought I was missing a chapter or epilogue.

Great book loved finding out abt ruby and her past and liked some of the new characters however it wasn’t as gritty as I thought it would be and seemed Ruby’s problems were solved relatively easy I was expecting more drama I still enjoyed the book and. I’m looking foreword to the rest of the trilogy
