The Billionaire Beast (Billionaire Fairy Tales, #2) by Jackie Ashenden - My Review


Dark, tortured, and intimidating, these dominant billionaires will steal their innocent heroines' breath away. Overwhelmed by their desire to control their world, they push their heroines to explore their deepest desires. But even the most unworldly of heroines can unlock these billionaires' secrets.

Nero de Santis: Damaged. Bastard. Beast.

Nero hasn’t left his house in ten years—he demands the world come to him, and the world is only too happy to bend to the strong-willed billionaire. Ruthless, cold, and selfish, Nero wants for nothing and takes care of no one but himself. His last handful of assistants have left his house in tears, but the prim redhead applying for the job looks up to the task. Nero has spent his life shut within the walls he built, with no care to have more than a window to the outside world. But the fiery passion he senses beneath his reserved assistant’s exterior makes him want to break down the barriers he lives behind, and unleash the beast within.
Phoebe Taylor: Uptight. Misunderstood. Engaged.
Phoebe needs the obscene amount of money that comes with being Nero’s personal assistant for one thing, and one thing only—to pay for the mounting hospital costs that her fiancee’s two-year coma continues to incur. She’s heard rumors that the de Santis beast is a force that cannot be tamed—but even she isn’t prepared to handle the smoldering intensity simmering beneath his hard shell of feral dominance. Nero is hiding something, something he is fighting with every step he takes. Yet he can’t help but stake his claim on this woman who has shaken up his life, and Phoebe can’t believe this animal of a man is the one person to ever look into her eyes and see her soul. Nero wants to keep her. He wants to devour her. And Phoebe just might let him.
Pre-order available: Amazon

MY REVIEW: What would you do for love? Would you try to conquer your darkest demons? Would it be worth it? What if you weren't sure, what would it take to convince you to try?

Nero has reasons for being the way he is. Yes, he's very arrogant and doesn't care. Doesn't care about anything really. He's obscenely rich, gorgeous and has people at his beck and call. What would it take for him to realize that his way isn't always the best way? What would it take for him to be a better man?

Phoebe is a people pleaser, great at her job and needs money, a lot of it and fast. What would she do it for it? Will she be able to teach a man what it's like to have love in his life? That not everyone is out for themselves and what it's like to give? 

It's an emotional book and you can definitely feel what the characters are going through. Your heart will break a little with theirs along the way.
