35 starsI enjoyed the concept of this story and I assume the series as a whole will run with the idea Instead of a regular dating site the characters use a sugar daddy site NOT an escort site although there is some fears and stigma that go along with the idea of getting a lot of money to be arm candy for a rich person Marissa is a super likable character She tries so hard to take care of her own problemseven with the problems shouldn t even be hers but were
