2,5 stars. I liked the writing and the first person POV was good for some funny insight. But it was just not my kind of story. The MC seemed dumber than a stone most of the time and all the alcohol and drugs didn't do him any good in the brains department either. It was a really strange love story if you even want to call it that at all. I also didn't really buy into this "go prostitute or starve" storyline when two pages down the alternative is going home and working on his parents farm. The MC came across very shallow and his "love interest" (his distant boss) was not likable at all. It remained totally mysterious to me why and how they fell in love.But because I liked the writing I will definitely try another one by the author.
