Beast is packed with action! The hero and heroine are both strong resourceful individuals. It’s a fresh take on the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale.
Sky Corgan is normally known for her more racier reads, but this one is more action than spice. If you don’t like hot sex and dirty talk you can just skip chapter 8, and you should be good.
“I KILL PEOPLE FOR A living. If they’re lucky, I only have to rough them up. It’s rare they’re lucky.”
Dyson Fidler is a hit-man. His current job is to acquire the daughter of renowned scientist and keep her hidden in a secure hideout in the middle of no where. Obtaining his target was easy. Maintaining her is proving to be difficult. Avoiding falling in love is impossible.
The Beast has problems because his boss will not accept failure. It could come down to his life or Kendall’s, and he knows he won’t be able to end hers.
“If you were scared, you wouldn’t do this stupid shit to begin with.”
In true beauty and the beast fashion Belle Kendall’s father is most times lost in his inventions, except this one is actually a success! Everyone wants to get their hands on it, and some are willing to go to ANYmeasure to get it. Kendall and her father flee to a remote hideaway, but not remote enough to stop the Beast.
In the hands of the Beast, she doesn’t cower. She is determined to rescue herself. She isn’t without honor though. When he comes to her rescue, she can’t leave him to die, and thus begins their true story.
“I’m glad you’re safe.”
I love the use of modern day science to tell this adaptation of a classic fairy tale. It makes the story more real. The sexy fun times in the middle make it even better. The new twists keep it fresh and make it a great listen.

Not as sexy of a listen by Sky Corgan as some of her other titles but it was still Hot! In exchange for some of the heat we get more action.
