Let me first start out by giving kudos to whoever designed the cover. The characters look exactly how the writer describes them. For me, the first thing I look at when getting romance books is the cover. And nothing is more irritating than getting a cover that has characters that look nothing like the characters in the book. BLACKMAILED BY THE BEAST has a beautiful work on the cover that led to an even more sexy, fun and beautiful love story.
I loved Lily Jones. First of all because she comes to life over the pages as a real woman. Full figured and full of spunk and passion but at the same time she remains sweet and innocent. Even though she is young (21), she has had a lot of responsibilities on her shoulders so she comes across as innocent but at the same time mature.
Wayne Brown. Let me just say I fell in love with him just like Lily did. Strong, capable, hard headed, hot and oh yeah...did I mention sexy? I loved his take-charge attitude. All alpha male yet at the same time you know he has some vulnerabilities just beneath the surface for the heroine to scratch and uncover.
At first I worried when I saw there was forced seduction. I wasn't sure if it could work. But BOY, did it work!
I loved this book. I will be looking for more from Sam Crescent to be sure. Thank you for such a well written, fun and sexy plot. I enjoyed it immensely.
Five stars for a great beginning, middle and a rocking happy ending.
