When you're a twenty-year-old triple platinum singer you get an image. 
Except mine was all wrong. On drugs; pregnant; fucking my manager. 
But I wasn't; it was all lies. I was a good girl. 
But now I'm done being the good girl, because it has gotten me nowhere.
I spent the last year in love with a guy who I was paying to fuck me. 
A guy who fell in love with someone else.
But now I’m over it. Now it's about me.
If the world thinks I’m a bad girl, then hell, that’s what I’ll be.
I'll show them bad. 
Let's find out how promiscuous I can be.

My Review

Promiscuous starts with Beth in a restaurant waiting for Coop but then receives a txt saying he's sorry but he can't come. Beth's manager Ivan is there and offers to have a drink with her and she accepts but is still uneasy around him but decides it's just a drink, why not.

Ivan rapes Beth and leaves her feeling like she deserved it and feels that no one will believe her if she goes to the police. Beth thinks she will be labeled worse by the world if she comes forward and everyone will call her a liar.

"I'd scrubbed so hard the skin had begun to break.  And it still wasn't enough.  I could still feel him.  I could still smell him." 

Beth struggles after the rape, everyday is very hard for her.  Beth starts drinking and going out to numb herself and forget what happened to her.

"Alcohol transformed me from scared, vulnerable girl I had become into someone with no problems and no inhibitions.  Without it, I don't know how I'd have survived the last month." 

Beth then meets a beautiful blonde woman in a club and decides that she may as well go with it and be with the blonde as that's what the magazines will say about her anyway. The beautiful blonde takes Beth to the VIP area where Beth meets Roman.  Roman watches as Beth and the blonde be intimate with each other. 

After that night, Beth can't get Roman out of her head but doubts she will ever see him again.  But Roman comes to her home the next day to see her wanting to see if she is okay.  Roman can see through Beth and can see how scared and lonely she is.

Beth is confused why Roman wants to spend time with her and when Roman explains he can see how lonely and scared she is Beth tells him that she doesn't need to be fixed.  Roman keeps trying to spend time with Beth and she still seems surprised why, most people have only wanted things from her but she can't figure out what Roman wants.

Roman has his own secrets that he is frightened of Beth finding out. He thinks if she finds out she will run from him and also thinks he probably isn't good enough for Beth.

Roman falls head over heels for Beth and tries really hard to show her he isn't going anywhere.  He knows she is hiding something but doesn't push Beth to tell him until he finds something that tells him all too much.

"I was becoming obsessed with finding out her secrets.  How did this beautiful creature harbor so much pain?"

Beth and Roman are doing really well in their relationship until one day Ivan asks Beth for a favor.  Beth is furious that Ivan would dare ask her of anything and does something very stupid.  She knows she is in big trouble and doesn't know what to do except to call Roman.

"The door opened, revealing a terrified-looking Beth standing behind it.  She is literally shaking like a leaf, her eye's are wide with fear." 

Roman decides to take matters into his own hands and hides Beth away until he can deal with it all.  Beth is scared Roman is going to get hurt.  Will Roman get hurt? will he return to Beth? well you will just have to read Promiscuous to find out! 

Why I gave this story 3 stars... Promiscuous has a lot of potential, but I struggled to connect to all the characters.  The situations Beth put herself in after her rape were just ludicrous to me, and made me angry. I don't mean her actions, I mean the situations that left her vulnerable, but she did them willingly.  Some of the scene's were very quick they flipped from one to another with no warning the story had changed days or places.  There was some word confusion for me.  I wouldn't really class this as a love story either, Beth seemed to still be in love with someone else up to about 86% but then a few pages later she was saying she loved Roman so that was very confusing. Overall it was a good read but I didn't love it. 

Promiscuous is a standalone but I would recommend reading book 1 Tease
Book 3, Captivating  is now on goodreads.

Missy Johnson also had a new book coming out in April 2014 called Provoke and let me tell you, the cover is HOT!!! 

★★☆ 3 Stars ☆★★
