THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING PHENOMENON



From Beth Kery, the national bestselling author of Explosive, comes a red-hot romance like no other—where the rules of attraction are broken with that first electrifying touch. Meet Francesca and Ian. The fantasies of what’s to come begin…



Because You Are Mine, Part I

Because You Tempt Me




It starts with that first look, when you know you have to have him… Francesca Arno has been commissioned to create a grand centerpiece painting for the lobby of Ian Noble’s new skyscraper. It’s at a cocktail party in her honor that she first meets him—and the attraction is immediate for Francesca. It’s also bewildering. She’s not used to such a wholesale sexual response to a stranger. Enigmatic, darkly intense, with a commanding presence, Ian completely unnerves her. And she likes it.



For Ian, she’s the kind of woman he can’t resist—one that comes all too rarely: a true innocent. But he can sense in her a desire to open up, to experiment, to give herself to the fantasies of a man in control. The first kiss, the first caress, the first challenge for a woman who craves what she’s never had—a man who gets what he wants.

    Don't waste your money for 30 pages

    Big fan of Beth Kery. Very unimpressed in this series so far. I paid for a disappointing 55 pages. Part 1 of the book doesn't begin til page 8 and ends on page 37! The remainder of the book is a preview of her book Wicked Burn; a book which I have already paid for and read. Very misleading to market what's basically a chapter in a typical book as multiple parts. Next time don't rush the publishing and sell the reader's the book as a whole. I'd be willing to wait and pay the additional money for a complete book.

    Penguin deceives the consumer again. This is a serialized novel. By
    the time you buy all of the installments you will have paid close to $16
    bucks for an ebook. Do yourself a favor and wait until all of the
    installments come out as a single book/bundle. By that time, maybe
    Penguin will have wised up and understood that the consumer isn't as
    stupid as they'd like to think. Apologies to Ms. Kery who probably has
    a great story here, just needs to consider getting a publisher who isn't
    out to screw her readers.

    I bought both part I and II in hopes that part II would be more.

    I bought both part I and II in hopes that part II would be more. It wasn't! I refuse to pay $16.00 for a nook novel. Seriously, just put the chapters together and call it what it really is just one book. I get 100 page series but 30 pages is a bit ridiculous. I will wait until not enough people buy the books and I can finish the seriers for less. I can wait, its not that mind blowing of a story.

    The book is good, it's the delivery system thats misleading. If I'm signing up to read a chapter a week let me know that up front. I'll likely plan to watch a TV show instead.
    Each series is so short put 3 or more together in one book. If it's a $ issue charge more for the combined series. I feel like I wasted my time as well as my money.

    Two chapters...that was it! I was shocked to find that I had just paid for such a small portion of the story. It literally took me an hour to finish "the book." The story, or what I got to read of it, was well written and enjoyable, but entirely too short.

    Highly recommended

    This is a serial novel, each part released every Tuesday for eight weeks. If you understand what you are getting, you'll really enjoy this steamy, addictive story.

    This can't even be counted as a book. It's a couple of chapters

    This can't even be counted as a book. It's a couple of chapters thrown
    out there as a story-sucking you in to buy the next one, then the 3rd
    one. But Wait! After you've bought 3 books it's not even close to
    finishing the story. The plot follows extremely close to that of Fifty
    Shade of Grey, except you wind up not really liking the male character
    in this book. I liked the female character and would like to find out
    what happens to her, but after paying $6.00 for a third of the story,
    I've decided to cut my losses. If you've read Fifty Shades of Grey,
    then don't waste your money on this because it's an inferior story. If
    you haven't read Fifty Shades of Grey, go read it. You'll save money in
    the long run because the story has already been written and three
    books-done. The moral of this review DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

    Really?!

    The writing is great BUT $1.99 for each "book" (that has 30-40 pages of the actual story...the remaining 20 or so pages are excerpts from other books by the writer) is just ridiculous!!! This author and publisher should be ashamed for charging this much for a series that should've been published as a WHOLE book and not as a weekly "MINI-series"! If you put all of these "books" (I use this word very loosely) together, you'd still have a relatively short book with an abrupt (but ok) ending to it. Do NOT waste your money! I read on the author's website that it will be coming out as a whole book in the middle-end of January. Wait to see how much it is then...I wish I woule have!!

    Lesson Learned
    I should have read the customer reviews and I would not have spent my money. The story was interesting but the pages were few!!
    It is difficult to really develop characters and storyline in only 20 something pages. Very, very annoying. The author would have been better served to wait and combine many of her parts into one book. I will not be reading the rest.

    Are you ready to turn up the heat this summer? Beth Kery delive

    Are you ready to turn up the heat this summer? Beth Kery delivers passion and sensual energy in her new erotic contemporary romance Because You Are Mine. When Francesca Arno first meets Ian Noble, she is blown away by her wholly sexual response to this mysterious and intense stranger. It is something to which she is not at all accustomed. But she likes it. Ian is a man who knows what he wants and how to get it. And at present that something is total possession of the naïve and innocent Francesca, no matter what it takes. But the bliss of sex without strings is ephemeral, and what starts as a purely physical relationship leads to something deeper and more intricate as both characters are drawn into a tumultuous romance, one that forces them to come to terms with what they each desire. Barriers must be broken and boundaries must be crossed before love can find a way. Find out where this whirlwind relationship will lead in Because You Are Mine. Bestselling author Beth Kery is ready to entrance fanatics of erotic romance for weeks to come. This serialized novel will be released in eight parts through the coming months, and every new component adds to the dimension of this dramatic struggle between two very different people whose flames have been ignited. Look for the first installment of Beth Kery's Because You Are Mine, which is not available.

    This was a good read. But I didnt like the fact that I had to keep buying the next book to continue the story just to see that if I had of waited I could have bought the complete series in ONE book in March. This series go very expensive for me.
