The Plot by Melinda De Ross is a pretty unconventional romance. Some of the subject matter may be difficult for some readers. This book was a very emotional book. In the beginning of the book it was easy to keep some distance especially due to the topic. Once the story moved in favor of the heroine you could feel the whole story shift.
Yoko and her best friend finish high school and come to America with the hopes they can get good jobs and send money back home to their families in Japan. She didn’t expect that she would fall victim to human trafficking. The girls manage to get free but Yoko feels like she needs revenge. While Yoko is working out her plan, she meets Mark who offers her a good job and it seems a little too good to be true. Can Yoko let herself trust Mark and believe the good things he is offering?
I was glad the beginning of the book glossed over a little bit the harrowing experience Yoko had. The book was suspenseful though knowing Yoko wanted revenge for herself and other girls like her. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see how she would go about her revenge. I had hope for Yoko and Mark. She had a horrible past but he felt for her just the same and I really hoped they’d both be able to work passed it all.
I enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it.
