New Release Review and Giveaway ~ Beauty and The Boss by @DianeAlberts

BEAUTY AND THE BOSS by Diane Alberts
Release Date: November 16, 2015
A Modern Fairytale from Entangled Publishing: Indulgence

Beauty is about to tame her beast...

Researcher Maggie Donovan has no luck with men, and it doesn't help that she can't keep her eyes off of her sexy boss - the one everyone else in the office calls The Beast. Relationships in the office are forbidden. So no one is more surprised than Maggie when she pretends to be his fiancée to save him during a difficult situation. Not only has she put her job on the line, but the future of the company.

Billionaire Benjamin Gale III doesn't believe in love or romance, but the look on his mother's face when Maggie tells her that she's his fiancée is worth millions. Instead of firing her for her insubordination, he goes along with the ruse. In his arms-and in his bed-she'd be everything he could ever want…which is why he can't have her.

But if he doesn't let her go, they'll lose everything…

Beauty and The Beast is one of my favorite fairytales, so I'm always intrigued by stories with a modern twist. I was not disappointed by Diane Alberts take on the tale!

Maggie Donavan is a bright and beautiful researcher working for a beast of a boss, Benjamin Gale III. She is the one person in the company who gets to see the real man because they are both able to let down their guard around each other. A twist of fate brings Maggie to announce to Benjamin's mother that the colleagues are actually engaged. Mrs. Gale is none to pleased with the announcement which gives Benjamin a great amount of pleasure. The couple continue with the farce, but Benjamin is more than happy to make it real.

While keeping up with their fake engagement, we see how much Maggie struggles to let Benjamin in. When she tries to keep him at a distance, it only makes them want each other that much more. I love the way Alberts describes their kisses! It is as if each time their lips touch, a cataclysmic event occurs. Their chemistry is off the charts while the threat of destroying what they are creating looms.

One of my favorite parts of the story is how Maggie can tease the Beast. She calls him Benji at times, which drives him mad, but she does it anyway. A true storyteller knows when to make you laugh and when to make you cry. Diane Alberts created the perfect moments for both and still pulled out a fairytale happily ever after.

Thanks so much to Diane Alberts, Entangled Publishing, and Inskslinger PR for gifting me with a copy of Beauty and The Boss in exchange for an honest review. If you enjoy this story check out some of Diane Alberts other works on Goodreads..
