I got it for free so it was worth the fun read and was a perfect little erotic bedtime story.
I would have loved for it to have been longer so there would have been more time to develop the plot and characters and then it would have been so much more believable...but it was good for what it was.
**** 3.5 **** "a modern day beauty and the beast" stars
Hero lost his parents and was left severely scarred from auto accident that was set up by an evil uncle out to get hero's inheritance. Thankfully hero survived but he is secluded in his mansion due to his disfigurement. He still craves female companionship so when he can't take it anymore he calls this company to send him an escort/prostitute. However, things are mixed up and he is sent a bride instead of an escort. He gets mad because he thinks they are trying to make fun of him (he really has low self esteem) and treats heroine really bad in their first sexual encounter.
Heroine is sweet, innocent and sheltered. She lost all her family and contracted herself as a mail order kind of bride to make better life for herself. She really wants a family and goes along with whatever hero wants because she believes he is her husband and she really wants the marriage to work. She does call him out on his behavior at first, and later tries seduce him.
Hero is hooked and calls back company to ask for more time. This is when the mistake is discovered and hero is told heroine is not for him. He already has his sights on heroine and refuses to give her up. Bribes lady of the company to give him more time with heroine. His plan is to win her over and get her to marry him, because he already considers her his.
Things go well from here as her become super sweet, possessive, dominant and OTT. Heroine recognizes immediately hero is head over heals and push over when she gives him this pouty move. I loved it! I love when hero spoils heroine and goes all crazy for them. Hero was no different.
The climax scene brings both revenge and revelations on how heroine ended up with hero in first place. I loved that final scene, the ending and the epilogue. This story is a must read and, in my opinion, best Alexa Riley story. It is a safe read. There are no OW or OM. Hero is heroine's first. I own it and have re read it countless times. Highly recommended it.
Ms Riley did a great job and I would totally recommend this book if you just want to unplug and read a great mixture of romance, erotica and a little bit of suspense at the end.
This is a standalone. No cliffy and a perfect epilogue.
Did I already mention how much I loved this book?? Lol
