Jaq has some serious mental health issues mostly stemming from a horrible childhood. When we meet her she has just been released from a facility and is fearful of everything. She calls a wrong number that brings Ollie into her life. She becomes dependent on him and he wants to save her from herself. Along the way they fall for each other. Theirs isn't an easy kind of love though. It's complicated and messy. They share some pretty steamy moments. I kept rooting for them, but I wasn't completely sure there was anything healthy in them being together.
I give Jaq with a Q 4 hearts!

“Hello, this is Oliver Benson.”
“Um, yes. Hi, I’m Jaq.”
The quiet, shaky voice definitely not matching the guy name caught me off guard. “Jack?”
“Well, yes but with a Q.”
“What can I do for you, Jaq with a Q?”
“I’m not sure if I have the right guy. Ollie Benson, that’s all I really have to go on.”
A brief memory touched my mind of my dad calling me Ollie as a boy. I hadn’t been Ollie in many years. Nonetheless, I asked, “What is it that you need done?”
“I don’t want to get into trouble. How do I know you’re not a cop?”
My head jolted a little with a startled surprise, but I continued, curious of what illegal transaction she was interested in pursuing. “You don’t, but you are wasting my time. Maybe I can point you in the right direction, but first you have to tell me what you’re looking for.”
“Well, I, I, I’m looking for someone to like, like get rid of someone.”
I sputtered hot coffee from my lips, choking on her words. That’s not what I was expecting. Heroine or meth maybe, not that. “You want to hire a hitman? You want to kill someone?”
“Well, no. I want someone to kill me.”
