This is book one in the Beauty and the Beast trilogy so expect cliffhangers.

Haley is on her way home from college and instead of heat, her car is shooting out snowflakes.  She doesn't know how she is going to get it repaired.  She's just a semester away from getting her degree in Literature and hopes her car holds out until she can graduate and get a job.

Haley Constantine has blonde hair and blue eyes, but that's where any similarities to the rest of the Constantines end.  She lives at home with her absent-minded inventor dad and brother Cash and is an embarrassment to their Aunt Caroline because their house is too small, they don't live in the affluent part of town, they don't have staff...they don't live up to the image of the Constantine name.

As she is coming in the door her father is leaving.  Excited that he has an investor for his breakthrough invention.  Then he drops the bomb...Leo Morelli is the investor.

Leo Morelli, The Beast of Bishop’s Landing, is the worse of all the Morellis.  He is a tall, dark-eyed devil who looks like he stepped out of a magazine, but he's not called the Beast for nothing, and she has to stop him!  Only she is too late to keep her father from signing the contract.

But she will make a trade.  One month of unlimited access to her body to release her father from his contract.

I absolutely loved this book!  It is very well written and the characters are fully developed.  Amelia Wilde's writing and descriptions drew me into the story immediately.  I could feel the cold.  I could feel the fear.  I could feel the rage.

Haley has never felt good enough.  She has always been made to feel inferior by her demanding aunt, but her determination to save her father and do anything in the process shows her strength.  She can't believe that she likes Leo's torment and actually craves it.

Leo has secrets.  Painful secrets.   And he will get his vengeance on the Constantines.  He deliberately went after the weak link in the family, but his plans have backfired on him.

This book is action-packed and full of danger and suspense.  The chemistry between Haley and Leo is smoking hot and despite his determination to be cruel and make Haley suffer, he does the most romantic thing possible for her.

I literally laughed out loud when he 'unpacked' her suitcase.  Hilarious!!!  This book has twists and turns and left me in tears at the end.  Major cliffhanger!

I highly recommend this book and can't wait to see what comes next!
