Anything for Love
by Gracie Bond
About the Book
Leah Jensen, Yorkshire lass born and bred, needs money and she’ll do anything – yes, anything – to get it. Her Grandad Thomas is in pain and the cost of an operation on his bad knee is way beyond the family’s means. Leah tries everything to earn the fee – but in the end, and like so many before her, she turns to the world’s oldest profession.
Madam Butterfly’s exclusive escort agency in London is a different world to where Leah comes from. In Whitby, the sea air is sweet, and legends of Dracula jostle with jet-mining and whaling history; it’s a place where dog lovers meet and tourists come to marvel at the views.
Leah may be out of her comfort zone, but one daring, brief encounter will bring many surprises in this memorable romantic comedy full of pithy Yorkshire humour.
This is the perfect title for this book because it’s about a young woman who will do anything for the people she loves. Leah adores her grandfather, and she would do absolutely anything for him. He has taken care of her most of her life, and now she wants to take care of him. He has arthritic knees that cause him so much pain, and the NHS has denied his surgery. She and her cousin, Joey, do about every odd job they can, but they still don’t have enough money until Leah does something she never would dream of doing, but she has to. Little does she know that one night will change the course of her life over several years to come.
Fast forward several years later, and Leah is again doing something for a boy she loves, her son. She goes in search of the man who changed her life, Dan, who happens to be the father of her son, Tom. It’s an adventure not to be missed.
The characters are fun and realistic! Dan is the workaholic, and every time Leah breezes into his life, she changes it for the better. His mother, Sophie, and her best friend, Ruby, make fun matchmakers! I loved Joey. He is the perfect sidekick for Leah!
It really is a heartwarming, fun read complete with great characters and a beautiful setting!
