    A steamy twisted tale

    This is a steamy, twisted take on The Beauty and the Beast and I loved it. Nero De Santis is truly beastly and a character that is difficult to like. That is until you hear his story. Never leaving his home he needs a personal assistant willing to live in his home and handle every request he has. Phoebe Taylor is efficient, appears cold, and desperate. Her fiance has been in a coma for two years and to continue his care she needs the outrageous salary Nero is offering for a personal assistant. Dealing with the churlish Mr. De Santis may be more than she can handle though. I wasn't too sure about this one when I first started reading it but as I got to know these characters the story pulled me in. I definitely recommend it!

    Beauty and the Beast, Ashenden style

    At first, you want to whack Nero upside the head for being such an ass. But just like Phoebe, you begin to see behind the snarling beastly facade that he had constructed around himself as the story unfolds. No that is no excuse for him to be such a douche but you begin to sympathize with the crap that he's been through and the circumstances that have lead up him being the way he is. In spite of that, he is the only one that doesn't let Phoebe get away with hiding her true self and her desires. Which leads her to discover a whole new bolder, confident and sensual side to herself. And now the new and improved Phoebe has the ability to see Nero for who he really is and can help him overcome his demons, but only if can accept that he needs her just as much as she needs him.

    Contemporary Romance

    The Billionaire Beast by Jackie Ashenden The Billionaire Fairy Tales #2 Phoebe Taylor needs money…a lot of money…and working as the personal assistant of billionaire recluse Nero de Santis might be the only way she can get the money she needs for the care of her comatose fiancé. Nero is not an easy boss but she believes she can put up with nearly anything for the right reason. Nero is intrigued by Phoebe. He wants to break through her English cool and see what lies beneath. Over time they are drawn closer and closer to one another and begin to care for one another. Their relationship bares them to one another in more ways than one until the story ends leaving them both better off than they were when the story began. The story is a well written modern version of Beauty and the Beast. I enjoyed the first book in the series perhaps a bit more than this one but did enjoy spending the day with Nero and Phoebe and was happy they managed to get find happiness together before the book ended. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC. This is my honest review. 3.5 Stars

    Exciting Dark Read

    'The Billionaire Beast' by Jackie Ashenden is book Two in the "Billionaire Fairytales" series. This is the story of Nero and Phoebe. This is easily a standalone book. Phoebe has moved to America from London to be with the man she planed to marry. But he was in a car accident that left him in a coma and with no family she is the one taking care of the hospital bills. Which has taken all of her savings and now she has taken a job with Nero who is know as the 'Beast". Because no one stays long that works for him due to his temper. But he offers a price that she can't say no and will try to put up with him. Nero due to a traumatic childhood doesn't leave his house. In addition he has somewhat of a temper and doesn't really understand the basic part of caring. But when he sees Phoebe he is attracted to her and doesn't understand that she isn't going along with his demand at first to sleep with him. It was so interesting to watch these two come together and deal with their issues. Loved it!! "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

    Great Story!

    The Billionaire Beast by Jackie Ashenden is a fairly short read, a great choice for anyone with limited time for reading. Ms Ashenden has delivered a well-written book, a nice smooth read. Nero and Phoebe's story will have your emotions see-sawing like mad. Ms Ashenden's characters are phenomenal and my favorite part of the book. There's plenty of drama, humor and sizzle to keep readers turning pages as fast as they can. I totally enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from the talented Jackie Ashenden in the future. The Billionaire Beast is book 2 of the Billionaire Fairy Tales Series but can easily be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.
