The smell of perm lotion and the sound of the dryer’s blowing hot air camouflages the truth, the lies, and the real stories behind the people inside the hair salon.
Cut & Blow flash in neon lights above the glass front of the outdated shop, but inside young talent shave and layer hair while making small talk with clients, that over share.
Ailee is a twenty-year old stylist with more secrets of her own than she hears from others on a daily basis. But, when a tall, long haired customer comes in and seduces her with his deep voice, the skeletons come tumbling out her closet before she can shut the door. Falling in love with him is like stepping off a ledge, she knows it won’t end well, but it feels so good on the way down.
Rainieri watches his wife from a distance, until he just cannot watch any longer. Through the salon window he sees someone else taking what is his, setting off his possessive streak. When she doesn’t get his subtle messages and her stubborn nature won’t give up, he steps in to take what was his all along.
As twisted as the gossip you hear in the hair salon, Cut & Blow will have you blushing and begging to hear the rest of the story.
Cut & Blow by A. Giannoccaro Initially all I knew about this book was that it was about a hair salon. I had recently read 28 Boys by the author which blew me away and I was excited about reading what she was writing next. This story was more than I had expected. Ailee has been doing things her way for years. She is a mafia princess who at the age of 15 was married to the prince of another mafia family. You see it was an arranged marriage and her husband was 13 years her senior. He has left her to live her life. For the last several years Ailee has had her own apartment and a job at a hair salon. Rainieri has been watching over her for years. Now he has decided to claim his bride, there is just one problem. She has fallen in love with someone else. I was worried where this story was going at first but this story was good. Yes I was surprised where the author took the story and by the end of it I was hooked. I can’t wait till the next book. The characters were interesting and I am looking forward to the next chapter of their lives. I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader copy of the book. I give this story 4.5 stars.
