The chemistry between the characters is hot AF! This is the kind of book that once you start reading it, you won't be able to put it down until you devour each page as a starved bibliophile. The pace is really fast. It is a sexy tale that will make you blush like a teenage.
This book is also co-authored with Ella James and wow! These ladies created an unique piece of perfection. It is sinfully written and the sex scenes are dirty and torrid.
Sinful attraction, hot sex, all-consuming desire are some of the words that can truly describe this book. Darcy and James are one of the strongest couples I read about. It didn't matter the special way they met. The attraction between them was insanely intense.
Accepting the job as a “intimate companion” will be a challenge for Darcy. She only accepted it because she has to support her brother, Denny. She is the only family left so she will sacrifice herself in order to get the money for paying his medical cares. She should be the things between her and her first “boss” as professional as possible but the Ice King is quite an Adonis. If she isn't careful, he will freeze her heart.
The Ice King will melt like hot butter when he meet his Ice Queen who happens to be a little lamb that will tempt him. They mean to be professional but they will surrender to their desires.
I truthfully recommend you this book. It is perfect for those readers who crave a a hot and fast read. Sexy Beast is a must read! I spent a wonderful time while reading this book. I couldn't put it down! I need more of Ice King!
This turned out to be quite a good novella despite its length. The writing was very good. The pace was perfect. The plot actually had some depth to it which surprised me given it only took me an hour to read. Last, it was all wrapped up in a sweet bonus story which was really just a one year later epilogue.
JAMES...I liked James. His character was maybe a little underdeveloped due to the length of the novella and the fact it is all told in Darcy's POV. But he had the whole brooding and hurt hero thing down pat. He was also sweet and sexy. He was a good hero.
DARCY...I really liked Darcy as well. Her character was better developed in my opinion. She was sweet. She was feisty. She was doing what she had to do to help her brother. She was a likable heroine.
This book is very low on secondary characters. Basically, the only one worth mention is Denny, Darcy's brother. I wouldn't mind seeing him get a book of his own.
High. There is quite a lot of sex in this one and the frequency of the scenes was quite high. This couple also had good on page chemistry.
~ANGST LEVEL - SEXUAL HISTORIES~
Lowish. There is really only one scene that I would consider angsty. It's the dramatic climax that takes place near the end. It actually added a bit extra to this novella that pushed my rating from a 3.5 to a 4. There was no OW or OM drama. The hero has a dead ex, but I wasn't bothered by this at all. Darcy never felt like second best. Neither were virgins. The hero hadn't slept with anyone since his wife died (a year earlier). I don't think the heroine had slept with anyone is a long while either.
~IN THE END~
I liked this one a lot. It was super short but had some good depth to it. Would it have been even better had it been a longer more fleshed out book? Yes. But I tend to feel that way about pretty much every novella I read. This was my first Ella J book, but it definitely won't be my last. Great writing. Likable characters. Hot sex. What more can you ask for? Therefore yours truly is going to give with one two thumbs up.
I wish that this story was longer! Sexy Beast is the story of Darcy and James.
Darcy is in financial dire straits and finds a job as a "companion" to James, a billionaire recluse. You find through the story James' tragic backstory. But what you don't see is the wicked twist! It totally threw me through a loop! I did NOT see it coming! And what a hella twist it was! Read the book and you will agree with me!
This is an extremely fast read, it went too quick, but the bonus story at the end was charming and helped finish the story.
I will part with a favorite, smexy quote from the book. "James - I told you what you're paying for, and then I showed you what you're not.." Holy hotness Batman! Total swoon moment!
Thanks for this story Ella J.!
I freaking loved this book. I love it so hard. This little gem of a story was everything I wanted and so much more. James and Darcy were amazing and their chemistry was off the freaking charts. I can't say anymore about how much I loved this book. This book was beautifully written. I loved the idea behind needing to help family and being willing to do anything to accomplish that. I loved that this was a short story, but I wanted so much more from James and Darcy. I loved them and I want to see what happens. Maybe we will get more in the future?!?
Please check out this awesome book. I know you will love it.
