“Why am I still here?” she whispers as my hand disappears into her panties.

“Because you want me. Because you can’t leave.” I slide my fingers between her slit. Her folds are already wet for me, even before I’ve laid a hand on her. I grin against her skin, finally understanding why I want her so much. She needs it rough … and rough is all I am.

“You used this against me, Lexi …” I whisper in her ear. “Used your pussy as a tool to get information.”

“It wasn’t just that …”

“Show it to me then.”

The nightgown falls down to the floor, exposing her naked body right in front of the open window. But with no one around, neither of us cares. I’m going for the kill.

“Make me believe the lie that’s us,” I say, rubbing her clit.

“It’s not a lie …” she murmurs, her breaths coming out in short gasps.

“You only say that because my hand is around your throat,” I say, dipping my finger into her pussy. She gasps out loud as I go deep and swirl around inside her. “Because I own this pussy.”

“Fuck …” she moans.

I groan and then pull away, releasing her from my grip entirely. A confused Alexis turns around and props herself against the windowsill, her eyes pleading with me as I walk backward. My cock is hard, but my desire to know where we stand is much more urgent. Her legs draw together and she clutches her body as another draft enters through the window, her nipples peaking from the cold.

I can’t help biting my lip as I watch her become befuddled while I sit down on the chair on the opposite end of the room.

“Go on then …” I say, rubbing my bottom lip with my index finger. “Carry on with the little show you had going in my workroom.”

She stares at me for a few seconds before leaning back. Her eyes glance over her shoulder to the opened window. I wonder if she’s thinking what I’m thinking. If she’s hesitating … trying to decide whether to run or stay … if she wants me more than her freedom.

But then her eyes settle on me as I zip down my pants and pull out my cock.

There’s a gleam of desire in her eyes … one that makes me grab a hold of the base and say, “You want this? You can have it … after you show me you really want it.”

My Review

This is the first book I've read by this author but I was intrigued by the whole Beauty and the Beast vibe so I thought I'd give it a go. On the whole I actually enjoyed it a lot, but I did have a few problems with it. 

Alexis is a down on her luck girl that has lived on the streets for much of her life. She has turned to prostitution to help support herself and her younger sister. She gets a request from her pimp to dance for a new client. Things don't go exactly as planned however and she finds herself pulled into an even worse situation than the one she started off in. 

There action starts pretty much straight away. I liked both mc's and could connect with them both. Viktor is typically 'beastly' and growls a lot but has a softer underside. Alexis is strong and sassy and I liked the interaction between them which was super hot and sexy. 

The writing was good and the plot flowed with some twists thrown in. 

Now we come to the only real problem I had with this. I understand this author is known for her 'darker' reads, which is fine by me, I'm practically unshockable and will read anything. I was told that this was not as dark as some of her other books but was still classed as a dark read. Therein lies my problem. To me it didn't read as dark, even though the subject matter was gritty. Everyone was a bit too nice for my liking and the characters had a pretty blas√© attitude to certain dangers thrown at them in the plot. I'm not one for giving away spoilers and I won't here, but their reactions just didn't ring true for me a lot of the time, so the darker sides of the plot just didn't quite seem as serious to me as they probably should have been. I wouldn't attempt to put anyone off by this however. This is my opinion and everyone is different and as I said I did enjoy the book a lot, I just wanted to feel a bit more danger lol. 

This is a good romance story about two good characters and I would recommend. It can be read completely as a standalone. 

All in all a good read. I would read more from this author in the future.
