Why do I have it? I like short stories and have read and enjoyed The Donor by this author in the past.

Casey Williams, a recent high school graduate, has left her sick and impoverished parents and moved to Boston. In an effort to earn enough money to help her family - to secure their financial future in the face of her dire medical diagnosis - Casey had turned to the website; and to the mysterious Jonah Black; willing to do almost anything for him. For the past several weeks now, she has lived in Jonah's Boston apartment - suffering from an inoperable brain tumor of which her parents know nothing.

During her time with him, and despite the fact that Casey signed a contract which effectively allows Jonah full access to her body - to do whatever he wishes - Jonah Black has conducted himself like a gentleman around Casey. When she joined, she never expected to meet someone who would help her pay her bills, and who still treated her decently. She finds herself actually liking Jonah. Quite a bit.

As Casey's nose bleeds eventually progress to worse symptoms, she can't help the feelings she's developing for Jonah, despite how he may never return them. And Jonah's been keeping secrets from her. Big secrets. Such as how he makes his money. And the identity of the little girl in the framed picture. With the clock ticking, can Casey find the answers she's looking for?

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. In my opinion, Jonah Black is not quite as frightening as he once seemed, although he still is just as mysterious. I can't wait until September to read the final part of this story; as this part ended in a cliffhanger that had me champing at the bit to learn what happens next. I give The Donor Part Two by Nikki Rae a definite A!

A! - (90-95%)

May you read well and often
