Beauty is about to tame her beast...
Researcher Maggie Donovan has no luck with men, and it doesn't help that she can't keep her eyes off of her sexy boss - the one everyone else in the office calls The Beast. Relationships in the office are forbidden. So no one is more surprised than Maggie when she pretends to be his fiancée to save him during a difficult situation. Not only has she put her job on the line, but the future of the company.
Billionaire Benjamin Gale III doesn't believe in love or romance, but the look on his mother's face when Maggie tells her that she's his fiancée is worth millions. Instead of firing her for her insubordination, he goes along with the ruse. In his arms-and in his bed-she'd be everything he could ever want…which is why he can't have her.
But if he doesn't let her go, they'll lose everything…
This book was just beautiful! It took me 4 hours to finish this book and completely fall in love with this story. Although this is a new spinoff on the classic Beauty and The Beast Story, this book was totally unique in its own way.
Benjamin Gale III is the CEO of Gale Incorporated, his family’s pharmaceutical company. For the past 5 years, since his dad died, he has dedicated every waking hour to work and to prove to his mom that he is worthy of the CEO position. He is cool, contained and emotionless. His employees call him The Beast and he pretty much has become a loner.
Maggie is one of Gale Incorporated’s Lead Researchers. She’s a transplant from South Dakota and a very hard worker. Although they don’t interact much, Maggie and Benjamin often find themselves being the last 2 people working in the office. Ben is definitely intrigued by Maggie and attracted to her.
“She was gorgeous as hell, her smile lit up a room, and she had a body that could easily inspire a rock ballad. But Maggie – she was different.”
One of those nights when they were working late, Ben decided to ask Maggie to have dinner with him. While having dinner, Benjamin’s mother barges in and misinterprets the situation. His mom is not a nice person and they go from having an innocent dinner to their jobs being in jeopardy. In order to save their jobs, Maggie announces that she’s engaged to Benjamin and the real adventure begins. A business arrangement turns into a beautiful love story and so much more.
I loved Maggie so much, she is my favorite kind of heroine, smart, strong and funny. She totally held her own and the relationship became one of equals. And Benjamin “Benji”, what can I say about him. He was also an amazing character, the way he let go of his walls and opened up to Maggie was a treat to read. Their chemistry is off the charts, the sexy times are super-hot and their banter is super funny. Oh and they are hockey fans as an added bonus! This book was so refreshing and funny, sweet and also sexy. I totally loved it and definitely recommend!
“I’m not familiar with the emotion, but if you let me, I’ll love you with all of my heart, mind, body, soul, and life. And even after that, I’ll keep on loving you, darling. I swear it. I love you so damn much, Maggie. So. Damn. Much.”
