characters Hard Times ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ò Years ago Lorna Malachi a frightened teenager was plunged into a nightmare called Blue Ridge Women's Correctional Facility Terrified and desperate to belong she sold her soul one piece at a time She survived to sit atop the ever shifting trash heap of prison society Lorna has Without help she won't last long Together Kellie and Lorna navigate through an oppressive hidden world where the lines between right and wrong blur sexual passion is forbidden but explosive and love is the biggest risk of all. I enjoy Cooper's writing and this is one of her better entries Both Lorna and Kellie are a nice mix of good personality traits and bad The story isn't afraid to get on the gritty side but doesn't get too dark That balance which is best represented by Lorna and her rival Katrina Lorna is really emotionally messed up by the abuse she experienced in the past and the further conditioning she receives in prison but she is fundamentally a good person you can see it in the way she treats Kellie and some of the other inmates Katrina is her complete opposite often seeming to not care what she does to hurt others as long as she gains power As for the story it weaves together multiple plot lines that explore prison corruption domestic violence and its aftermath substance abuse and so on They all tie up neatly in the end but Cooper manages to make me believe that our leads weren't going to get out of the prison unscathed In many ways they show a lot of internal and external scars that while they get their happy ending we know they still have some work to do I loved this book It was a little too dramatic at times but Lorna and Kellie aren't typical Lesfic leading ladies and I enjoyed learning about them

Blayne Cooper ☆ 7 summary

Hard TimesEr shifting trash heap of prison society Lorna has learned the hard way not to trust anyone particularly penal system virgins like Kellie Holloway her unrepentant new cellmate But Kellie's pride and cluelessness guarantee that. changed my rating from 3 to 4 because it was even better the second time It took me a few chapters to get into the story but once I did I was hooked The storyline is very original for a book of this genre and if you are an OITNB fan you're bound to love Hard TimesSome moments are heartbreaking some others are really sweet but all are very beautiful It's a story about pain trust love and hope The chemistry feels real between both women It's refreshing to read a story where women fall in love when they are at their worst And they love each other not despite their faults but almost because of themThe characters are very organic They are very flawed and therefore very human There is also a real plot that keeps you want to read and that may surprise you So why not 4 or 5 It's really a matter of taste mostly I've read better stories that gave me a lot butterflies The only reasons I can pinpoint are the writing style isn't very smooth Sometimes I got a bit lost on who was saying what then I got used to it and it passed I could have used intimate scenes while they are in prison The months go by a bit too fast in between chapters and I would have loved to see a bit about how their feelings grew
