    BRIEF SUMMARY

    Wayne Brown aka The Beast, always gets what he wants. From the moment he saw Lily,
    he knew he wanted her and sets his plan into motion to blackmail her into marriage. Wayne's choice for blackmail, paying of the family's debt. Lily is very young and innocent. She is always treated like an outcast within her own family, so when she is forced in to marriage she is appalled but yet finds herself attracted to Wayne.

    THOUGHTS

    I love a good blackmail story; this concept never gets old for me and this story delivers with its twist in blackmail. A way to describe this story would be a fusion of any blackmailed in to marriage story with a bit of a Cinderella concept, throw in spicy erotic scenes and the author, Sam Crescent, created a scrumptiously story.

    I personally found Wayne and Lily's story wonderful. Wayne was a beast in the boardroom as well as negotiating, and Lily's situation wasn't any different, by any means necessary was his plan. What gave the story that tingling sensation for me was Wayne's possessiveness and aggressive tactics, along with Lily's innocence. With both having a rough childhood they were both very guarded. Along with being blackmailed, Lily's attraction to Wayne was evident in her own awkward way. Once their physical chemistry was taken to another level I thought it was explosive. If you're a fan of the possessive guy and innocent girl scenario, then you will enjoy this story.

    I really enjoyed reading about Richard and Tony, Wayne's best friends. I kept thinking to myself while reading the book I hope the author delivers on a story for both Tony and Richard. While reading the epilogue, we got a taste of Richard and I can hardly wait.

    Storyline: GOOD
    Intimacy: VERY SPICY & VERY GOOD
    Enjoyment: GOOD

    Could not get drawn in

    This was an average story to me. It started out with man already in love with her. I would like to see a developement of him falling for her. The girl really acted like a bratty child. What man wants to be with someone who is naive, bratty, insecured, and not appreciative. I felt more sorry for the beast than her. He could do better!

    Not going to finish this one

    It reads like it was suppose to be historical erotica. It's like the author went back and tweaked it here and there to make it more modern. I don't read historical. I have tried but just don't really like it. The family treats the girl poorly but she loves them since they are her family. When they no longer have any money she becomes the cook/maid pretty much. This guy that has noticed her at "balls" hears about the families hard luck. Then he offers financial support to her family if she agrees to marry him. Her entire family treats her badly but she agrees since they are her family. Since I stopped reading about 1/4 of the way in I don't know if it continues in this manner or not.

    Highly recommended

    This is a great twist on beauty and the beast. It is sexy. I really like how the heroine finds herself and starts to appreciate her own sexuality and goodness
