**ARC of Because You Are Mine 1, Because You Tempt Me was provided by the publisher. This serial novel has been called the next Fifty Shades. I can see why. Rich, dominant billionaire tycoon meets young innocent college girl. But this is told in a different way. Each “book” is essentially 2 chapters of an 8 part serial novel to be released weekly through October 2012. It’s more like a BDSM romance themed weekly TV series!
Francesca is a masters student in Fine Arts and has won a competition for a commission in the lobby of Ian Noble’s new Skyscraper. Since she had to fill out a lengthy application for the competition, Ian knows a lot about Francesca. Probably a lot more than is on her application as well.
When they meet at the cocktail party in her honor, it’s obvious sparks begin to fly. Francesca has some totally inappropriate thoughts and finds herself reacting to him differently than she has ever reacted before.
Ian, it seems is having the same reaction (judging by his really hot masturbation scene), and though he tries to fight it, apparently the pull is pretty strong.
I am finding it so hard to review this as its own entity because it isn’t, it is just a piece of the whole, and this installment is just the beginning, setting the groundwork for the rest of the series. But what there was certainly made me want to begin the next immediately, and luckily the publisher provided me with the first two! And believe me, it was worth waiting a week for.
- Good set-up to a story.
- The beginnings of what look to be SUPER hot scenes.
- It is not just a lady porn series, this one was just a preview of the sex, but we got to meet the characters and get to know them.
- I really like Francesca.
- I am curious to know more about “the cat” reference.
- Too short! I would have liked to see a bit more for $1.99 each, or at least this one should have a cheaper 99 cent introductory price.
- Waiting for the next.
- I haven’t totally fallen for Ian……yet.
I am going to hold off on a rating this until I review Because You Are Mine 2, or even wait to read more. On sites where I have to, I will give it a 5 but I really don’t feel I can review such a small part of a larger work. Since I have read and loved other Beth Kery books, I can tell I’ll love it though.
The second half of this book is a preview of Wicked Burn, and the preview is as long as the book, but that’s OK because the preview is TOTALLY hot, and for me, I enjoyed reading it even more than when I read the whole book the first time! Check out my review of Wicked Burn here. And my gift my husband bought me after here.
Beth Kery is also visiting my blog every release day (Tuesdays through September 18) to give away one of her installments and answer YOUR questions, starting right now!
