Publisher's Summary

There are more than 30 million slaves in the world today. Eighty percent are female, and half are children. This is Billie and Carmine's story. 

Deceived into leaving Haiti and Cuba by Mr. and Mrs. Vega, Billie and Carmine are confronted with a harsh reality once on American soil. The teens realize they are sex workers for the Pricey Pussy Empire, and the couple who lured them to the US actually run their own division for the underground flesh-for-sale operation. Billie and Carmine will suffer through human indecency, cruel punishment, and sexual assault in hopes of breaking the chains of captivity. 

When Billie is sold by the bitter wife of the man who slips into her bed at night, the twosome is faced with a huge dilemma. Will Billie be swept away in the dark of night by her new buyer, or will Carmine step in and help her with a plan that will win their freedom? But, what is freedom to the souls who continue to play in traffic? 

Choices must be made, and those decisions may deal the priciest blows to their young lives. There is an expensive price tag attached to vengeance, and once it is theirs, they may just end up paying with their souls. 

What does it take to survive in the world of human trafficking? A warrior's heart, a hunger for blood and revenge, and pure insanity. Witness the evolution of Billie Blue Blondie and Carmine Pallazolo.

Hell and Back

Billy and Carmine have been to Hell and Back. The book started off breaking my heart. The kids had to grow up so quickly. I did not like the end. There must be a part two. I hope there is. I must say human trafficking is still so real and sad.

Bravo

The first few chapters of the book made me want to stop listening but something kept pulling me back in. The things in the book I could only imagine how it is in real life. The ending made it so much clear to me! The author did a phenomenal job 2 thumbs up!

This story was a hard listen ! But good

I typically do not enjoy Mishi narrations but she handled this book well! It’s scary but crazy to know things like this actually happens. 😩 so sad. Carmine is a M F ‘n protector and Billy needed him to help keep her from going completely iffy he deep end. Good job author. Thx for sharing.

Amazing Story

Amazing story. Touches the depths of the soul and asks the question we all want the answer to: “why God why”. What determines one man’s fortune versus another. A deeply stirring true story.

good book

difficult to listen to children being abused but I understand it is a reality I didn't like billy after awhile because she turned into a monster. carmine is too good for her. interested in the next book because this feels like there's more.

Pretty good

This was a pretty good read though brutal to get through for me. There was a lot of sex murder and mayhem, as to be expected, but the level of brutality was more than I thought there would be. At any rate, I enjoyed it, though dark.

It took me a minute but..

I followed the narrator here and she didn't disappoint! Now the storyline was a little hard to swallow. Midway I came back to the reviews to see if I'd missed something and there was a reviewer who said after the first few chapters it got better so I pressed on and it turned out to be a pretty decent book.
