Lily Jones grew up knowing that for whatever reason her family hated her and now they expect her to allow herself to be blackmailed into marring Wayne ‘Beast’ Brown just to save them from financial ruin. She goes along with it because she does love her family, and she has gone without love this long so why change now. Little does she know that her Beast does love her but he isn’t ready to say it but when he does finally pull his head out of his ass it will be just a little too late. Some days it is so easy to write what I like and/or don’t like about a book and other days it seems just plain hopeless to figure out what I want to say and yet here we are with I book I genuinely like and have read more than twice and I’ve got nothin’. So Maybe just writing until it all comes to me will solve some of this brain deadness that seems to happen a lot lately in the last eight months. I have been searching a lot for books that help me bury my head in the sand so to speak and I remembered really getting into the characters and the story and so this book was chosen for that end. Lily reminds me of Cinderella only Lily’s father is a live but treats her as bad as mommy dearest and the wicked bitch sister of the East treats her and yet they expect her to marry just so they can maintain their precious life style. Then there is Wayne who actually loves here but pretends not too and does nothing but hurt her over and over with his insensitiveness and all poor Lily wants is for someone to finally love her for her and who she wants to be. When Wayne finally figures out that he has to give more of himself it’s too little too late and Lily resigns herself to what she believes will be a loveless marriage because there is just no way that Wayne really loves her. You wouldn’t believe how many times I wanted to smack Wayne upside the head myself when he dug his hole deeper and deeper. The bedroom scenes aren’t super graphic are more hinted at then steaming off the pages but thankfully those aren’t need to make a story worth reading. I would give Blackmailed By The Beast a five-star review but there were enough edits to reduce that rating by one star so four-stars were giving to the story.

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

I was in the mood for a good contemporary Beauty and the Beast story, and this was it. The story was a good length with all of the elements that we love in this type of a story. The heroine was sweet even if she was just a bit too perfect at times. She let her half-sister stomp all over her. Her dad threw her to the beast so to speak to cover his own ass, and she never really stood up for herself. The mother was horrid for what seemed like no good reason until later when her issue with "Beauty" is revealed. The so called beast is a gruff man who does honestly care for her. He tries to hide it, but he's not that great at disguising his feelings. He pulls his beauty out of her shell. Yes, this book is worth the price, and it is a sweet, good feeling story.

This reviewer's rating: 1 - Poor

I try not to say anything bad about other people’s creative endeavours, however this book was horrendous. The characters are stereotypical and stagnant. The writing is underdeveloped and painful to read. At times I found myself wondering if English was perhaps the author’s second or third language. There was no depth, no believability and although it was a great story idea, it was poorly executed. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
