Book Review - Bought: Destitute yet Defiant by Sarah Morgan

Amazon USA Amazon UK
Review by Suze
Jessie tries to work as much as she can by cleaning and singing in nightclubs. She can't keep the money she makes for herself though as she needs to pay off old debts. When Silvio discovers what she's doing he takes her away and forbids Jessie to return to her apartment. Silvio was important to Jessie in the past, but he disappeared and they didn't keep in touch. He wants her to have a better life and he can afford it, but Jessie doesn't want him to make decisions about her future. She can't take much more after everything she had to endure plus she isn't part of his new luxurious lifestyle. Will she be able to prevent her heart from being broken again?
Bought: Destitute yet Defiant is a wonderful romantic story. Silvio is a powerful and wealthy man. He's got a reputation in a lot of different circles. Before he found her by accident he had no idea about Jessie's situation and now that he's seen what she has to do to survive he wants to help. What he offers her comes with a price though. He's a kind man, but he's also used to getting his way. Jessie is a fighter and she values her independence. If she'd rely on Silvio she'd have to give part of that up and she doesn't know if she's willing to do that. They keep playing a dangerous game and there's a lot at stake. It was interesting to watch and I couldn't wait to find out how it would end.
I love Sarah Morgan's stories. They're always about fascinating and talented people. Bought: Destitute yet Defiant is a great modern fairytale. I was enchanted from the start and loved the chemistry between the main characters. Jessie and Silvio are perfect for one another. I liked this story very much, it's a quick read with a lovely ending. It's a typical Sarah Morgan book, which means it's charming, dreamy and really sweet.


  1. I really like romantic stories, with HEA and looking forward to read it!!! great review!!!

  2. Sounds like an intriguing story. Adding to my TBR list.

  3. This book sounds like something I'd really enjoy reading, thank you for reviewing!

  4. Sounds like a great read . Thanks for the review .

  5. I felt like shaking Jessie! Why on earth does she allow herself to be taken away by Silvio & 'forbidden' to go to her own home by him? Come on, woman, we all have debts that we try to pay off and sometimes it seems impossible but selling yourself short is not the way to do it. Stand on your own two feet & be proud of who you are.

  6. Heard Sarah Morgan is really a good author. Will definitely check this out and her other stories.
