Damaged Girls is about ill-fitted relationships and how it affects their families. This is not your typical romance story. Steven Briggs is an older man who only has eyes for younger woman or should I say girls around 16 years of age. He will manipulate any situation to get what he wants and, unfortunately, the women he wants are not wise enough to know better.
Every so often a book comes along that for some reason effects you emotionally and, for me, this was that book. We can all relate to this book because we know or knew of a girl who was treated so wrongly and/or a man who did the ill treatment, like the characters in this book. Then we ask ourselves, why do people manipulate others and why do others allow themselves to be manipulated. Life is hard enough and these girls made their lives so much harder by staying in unhealthy relationships.
From the first chapter, as narrated my Morgan whom I liked, I needed to know more of what was going to happen next. Off the bat, I did not like Morgan's friend, 35 y/o Steven at all. He sickened me by only wanting little girls who were barely sixteen as he watched and waited until they were legal enough for him to pounce. If he could have had them younger he would have. The two main female characters, Jessica and Jillian are taken on a roller coaster ride of mistreatment under the spell of Steven just to be with him. Jessica, 16, defies her parents and Jillian will take what little crumbs he throws at her since she has gotten too old for him at the ripe old age of 21! This book is about coming of age, misguided love and emotional hardship
Once again Janice G Ross throws caution to the wind by producing a book regarding a subject matter which hits home for a lot of us. The descriptive writings the author chooses is so distinct it’s almost considered unique and the flow of the story keeps the reader engrossed, in such a way, you are finished with the book before you know it. The author has an amazing ability to capture raw emotions and portray them on paper. The book was compelling, emotionally riveting and I highly recommend it!
Janice was born in Guyana, South America and migrated to the USA in 1980. Although her citizenship certificate now reads the United States of America, she considers herself a citizen of the world. Sure she has not physically been around the world and back, but she’s traveled in her mind and dream.
