Freeing the Beast (Taming the Beast #1)
by Tina Donahue
No more Mr. Nice Guy.
Magic is Becca Salt’s business, but it ain’t happening in her bedroom. The half-witch proprietress of From Crud to Stud performs miracle makeovers for paranormal creatures. Once she’s done with them, they’re out the door hunting for hot babes, not hanging around for a too-curvy, plain Jane like her.
Her newest client is hot, hung, mouthwatering perfection. What could she possibly improve upon?
Eric Diletto. Descendant of Cupid, bred for courtship, courtesy, and all that other gentlemanly junk. What has it gotten him? Dumped time and again for bad boys. He needs Becca’s help for an entirely different reason—regression therapy to release his inner beast. Grrrr.
Two potions later, they’re crawling all over each other. Becca aches for a man who loves her as she is, not because he’s under the influence. But Eric isn’t as impaired as she thinks. And he intends to take Becca here, there, and everywhere—anything to convince her his desire isn’t just the potions talking.
Warning: A witchdoctor’s nightmare. Contains potions with weird side effects, a sorceress with limited magical skills and a yearning heart, plus a minor god who wants to get down and dirty. Bad, bad boy!
Ever heard of a business that does makeovers for paranormal creatures, helps in taming the beasts inside so they could find their one true love? Well, that’s what From Crud to Stud is for. Becca Salt owns and operates this booming business, but when she encounters Eric Diletto, she’s surprised by this minor Greek God’s request. Instead of being the nice guy, he wants to unleash the Kraken and be the bad guy every woman wants.
Will Becca succeed on this predicament?
I enjoyed a great part of this paranormal story and even had me grinning like a lunatic after all those (mis)adventures of Becca Salt and her conquest. She’s one insecure witch who believed that no guy would ever fall for her. I liked how Eric Diletto entered the picture and knocked the wind out of Becca. Literally. Loved their banters and crazy antics, and the supporting characters were just as funny as well. (Loved Uncle Desi!)
This has been a really hot and erotic paranormal story that wiped out the frowns I was having this morning. Really a great fun read!!
NOTE: I received this book from the publishing company in exchange for an honest review.
