"A crippled economy changes Lola Jones's silver spoon status to copper and threatens to rip her sheltered family from the upper echelons of society, dropping them into the rotten bowels of East St. Louis. Only one thing can save Lola's children from the claws of poverty, and that comes in the form of a million-dollar insurance policy. It, however, is just a useless piece of paper unless she's dead. With that in mind, Lola vows to make the ultimate sacrifice for her children's well-being. There are two problems: She doesn't have the guts to kill herself, and her insurance doesn't pay out on suicides. With only days left before her family learns the true meaning of homelessness, Lola turns to Blase, a desensitized hit man with a "no turning back" policy, to execute her murder. To foot Blase's upfront bill, Lola seeks prostitution. It's not long before the hole that she has already dug gets deeper. Living on the erotic edge leads her to an unforgettable sexual encounter with Mannish Major, a lonely married man with skeletons swinging in his closet. Their tryst explodes into a full-blown love affair that renews Lola's will to live and to face the adversities of life head on. But not even a budding romance will cancel the expiration date Blase has set on Lola's soul. Now Lola and Mannish must make a final and desperate attempt to stop the hit man, or else they will die trying."-- Provided by publisher.

I found this book to move a little slow.

Just like all of Brenda Hamptons books, this one was great.

About to be homeless, Lola decides to hire a hitman to kill her so her family can reap the benefits of her million-dollar insurance policy, but when she turns to prostitution to pay for the hit, she finds love and a renewed will to live in the form of a "john" named Mannish Major.
