BEAST: Is a full length stand alone romance novel by new to me author Measha Stone.

Arriving early morning to do her shift at the coffee shop her and her father own Ellie Stevens is filled with dread when she sees thugs demanding that he cough up the money owed today because Ellie Steven’s father is in debt due to another of his gambling habits to the sum of ‘One hundred and fifty thousand dollars’ to a mafia boss, Ashland Titon. Knowing he's unable to pay it he's dragged outside to an awaiting vehicle. 

Later that day she does some background digging on the man Ashland Titon that is holding her father, newspaper clippings tie him to sex trafficking and loan sharking. She will do anything to see him, even if she sacrifices herself. 

And that’s exactly what happened, like a lamb to the slaughter she bowled up to his establishment and demanded he let her father go and take her instead as payment to work in one of his many establishments he's known to run. He readily agrees to let her father go free as long as he seizes all communication with his daughter.

Don't think for one fucking second this has a happily ever after.
Because this is no fucking fairy tale. 


Ash isn't too sure what to make of Ellie or what to really do with her, but the way she strode into his office demanding he do shit he wants to claim her as his. This goes beyond kinky, the floggings, his little plaything, all the lessons all made for one steamy assed read!!

You showed up here. And I accepted your offer, which means, you're mine. Everything about you, everything you think, everything you do, what you wear, what you eat, is all my business.

Wow what a crazy hot little number this one was, Beast exceeded all my expectations, I wouldn't pin this as a dark read but is loosely connected to an all time favourite fairy tale 'Beauty and the Beast' though an adult version. Once I started this I couldn't put it down, the flow of the story is seamless and the writing style is faultless, I loved these two characters, they were just perfect together.



Wouldn't you give up everything for the one you love?

When Ellie's father is taken by a group of thugs planning to take his life in exchange for his debts, it’s no surprise she goes running straight into the beast’s lair. After all, Ellie Stevens has been her father’s keeper for as long as she can remember.

However, Ashland Titon isn’t a man of mercy. If you owe, you pay. End of story. His unrelenting control has built his empire, and he’s not going to give over that power now. But when Ellie charges into his life with her demands and possibilities of sweet surrender, her offer proves too tempting to pass up.

Yet there’s more at play here than just working off a debt. There are secrets buried in the shadows, and dangerous desires to be explored. While the two of them dance to an erotic beat, outside forces threaten Ashland's empire and Ellie must decide where her heart truly lies - and what she's truly willing to risk for love.
