Summary

They say good things come to those who wait. 

Bulls--t! 

My whole life has been about waiting. Playing it safe. Be the good girl, don’t color outside the lines. Put in the hard work trying to prove myself to Dad, then to my college professors, then to my boss at New World Media. Just waiting for the day when it will all pay off. 

And right when it was all starting to - I finally had the house, the job, I was even thinking about getting a cat - boom! - my life explodes and suddenly now I’m here and - 

“All done,” the doctor interrupts my thoughts, pulling off her gloves with a loud snap. 

Even from the bed where I’m lying, my legs spread like the Thanksgiving turkey, I can hear the impatient growl of the man standing in the doorway. If you can even call him a man. More like a beast out of a friggin’ fairytale. “Well?” 

Her pronouncement echoes throughout the room while the speculum is still inside me. “She’s a virgin.” 

Intended for mature audience. Steamy romance with dark themes. 

INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR: 

Q - Where did you get the idea for this book?
A - Who doesn’t love a Beauty and the Beast story? I’ve been in love with this fairytale since I was a kid and read all sorts of different variations on it. Now that I’m grown up, well, I couldn’t help but imagining some darker twists and turns the story could take. A tortured hero, kidnap, and a girl falling for her captor - hello, this is the stuff dark romance is made of! 

Q - Why should I read this book?
A - I write the kind of books I love to read, which is dark romantic erotica. I want stories that steam things up in the bedroom but not if those scenes don’t go hand in hand with three-dimensional characters, can’t-stop-flipping-the-pages suspense, and quality writing. I like alpha males, (doesn’t hurt if they happen to be billionaires)!, bad boys, BDSM, contemporary, urban settings, and fiction where women can be strong while also exploring all sides of their sexuality. My favorite books are ones that dare to go into the darkest and most taboo places in the human psychological experience, leaving you wrung out on the other end.

This book is the worse

I'm pretty sure anyone that gave this book a good rating was paid to do so. It's absurdly the most ridiculous book I've listen to so far on audible. First of all the main character is supposed to be a virgen, yet she gives it up so easily after 25 years of not having sex to a sadistic man with half his face burned off. Then he treats her like an animal but yet she can still get turned on by him!!! Absolutely bonkers!!! How she could not plot his murder is beyond me. This book isn't just about BDSM. it's about a psychotic jerk and his idiot victim. I couldn't get past chapter 10. Don't waste your money.

Not of a fan of the idiot FMC monologues

This book suffered from stupid FMC syndrome. A lot of is her going on and on with the dumbest sense of logic and paper thin convictions. If just makes you want to fast forward way too often to really make this enjoyable. Non-stop, it's, "Is this right thing to do? or is this this the right thing? or maybe this? and the beat goes on. On top of that, the narrator isn't really the best. She sounds like she's more so reading a book to herself out load as opposed to reading an audible production.

Great story

This had ot all. Great story. Great characters. Great narration. What more can I say except this is a keeper to listen to to in the future. Loved it
Could not put it down. It flowed right. Not over winded like some books. I never had to fast forward. Get this one, you won't regret it. If submissive behavior is not your thing you will haye it till you understand why H is the way he is. Thanks.

Cowboy master

If you like BDSM, you will enjoy this. The narrator has changed and some parts re-written, and it truly is a massive improvement. Fans of Stasia Black will love it. Also, it deals with PTSD, living with a disfigurment, survivors guilt. It was so touching.
