This is a delightful twist on the fairytale ‘Beauty and the Beast’, a highly enjoyable romance filled novella.
The boss is Benjamin Gale the third, CEO of his family’s company, totally goal orientated and nicknamed the Beast by most of the folks who work in the office. The noteworthy exception to this is equally hardworking researcher, Maggie Donovan, who is the only one he’s ever heard defending him. When both are working late one night he decides to invite her to join him dining with another member of the board – then that gentleman cancels, leaving the two of them dining in his office when his nemesis – his mother – appears. She’s the epitome of the evil stepmother – wicked, manipulative, threatening, spiteful, a nasty person who has never shown him any love. Relationships in the office are banned so now his mother tries to sack Maggie and threatens to have him ousted from his position. Maggie, however, is made of sterner stuff and proclaims they’ve been dating for ages before she joined the firm and they’re now secretly engaged! To find out what happens next, you’ll just have to read this yourself!
The story is an engaging tale, with enough twists and turns to keep the reader enthralled. His ‘mother’ is determined to thwart their romance and manipulate both their lives to achieve her own goals, which is certainly not his happiness! It is a cute and charming tale, befitting its fairytale basis and a very enjoyable read.
Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.
