I received this book with the understanding that I could leave a voluntary and honest review.
In this book we meet Belle Fontaine and Drake McManus. Belle and Drake meet for the first time across a board room table. Belle's father needs to see off the company to help pay for her mother's cancer treatments. Of course none of this is told to Mr. McManus because they don't want it used against them but when he offers an extremely low price for the company they know they can't just sit back and take it. So when Drake offers to continue negotiations for the next month with Belle alone at his home in the Bahamas she isn't sure what to do. Will she go in order to help save her mother or will she take it as the chance to finally get away from it all?
Drake is stunned from the first moment he sees Belle. He knows he has to have her and there is something about her that calls to his primitive side as well. He isn't sure if she will agree to his terms but he is hoping that she will. All he knows is he has to find one way or another to have the little beauty that has captured him with just one look. He wonders though will his demons keep him from having something more special than he ever knew? Or will he destroy it like he has everything else in his life?
This is a great twist to the beauty and the beast story. There are many twists and turns in this book that will have you hooked from the first word to the very end. I liked how in this book we see how much secrets can not only destroy a relationship between two people but also how we perceive ourselves when we believe these lies. This is an amazing book that I want to tell you so much more about but don't want to ruin it for anyone else. I will say that would highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
