Sam Crescent delivers another fabulous BBW romance with this swift, sweet and sexy romance. Hope Miller May be young in actual years but she is an old soul after going through things that no one should have to endure, especially a young woman her age. She is beyond resilient and I couldn’t help but hold my breath in hopes that she’d get not just what she wanted but what she deserved. I wanted her to be happy more than anything. Beast Carson is by no stretch of the imagination a nice man; his businesses are sketchy and he controls with fear and threats. He is fascinated by Hope who is not afraid of him and intrigues him more than any woman ever has even though he is twice her age. I loved the development of their relationship and how many doubts he had with his feelings and if a relationship would be appropriate. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the doubts on both sides and the input of both Beast’s brother and nephew. I loved the rough edges to this guy and despite their glaring differences I think the two were perfect for one another. I cannot wait to read the brother’s story!
The Story: Hope Miller just wants to complete high school and get out of the town where she is seen as such a misfit after a horrible ordeal and she’ll do almost anything to see that she does. This includes tutoring crime boss Beast Carson’s nephew. When Beast meets Hope he instantly wants to protect her. Even if they do have a relationship can she ever forgive him if she learns his secret?
He's never been a good man...
Hope Miller has been through a lot. After being trapped in a basement, witnessing her mother’s murder by her father, then being shot, too, before her father killed himself, she’s not the most normal girl. But she has a plan—she’ll graduate high school, move out of town, and leave the memories behind. Part of this plan means tutoring other students, which brings her to the Carsons’ home.
Beast Carson has tortured, maimed, and killed, all in the name of business. But seeing the curvy woman in his library, he’s instantly intrigued. She’s his nephew’s tutor, and way too young for him. Determined to give Hope a new life, Beast promises her a future that she can’t say no to. There’s no denying they want each other, and when Hope asks him to teach her, he can’t refuse.
Lessons soon turn into something more, and Hope knows she can’t walk away from this man, even though her plans say otherwise. But Beast holds a secret that could tear Hope away from him. When she learns the truth will she stay? He’s her Beast, and he’ll fight to keep what’s his.
