Publisher's Summary

Daniela Manzano has spent the last five years learning how to please a powerful mob boss. But after a rival kidnaps her, she becomes a pawn in the dark games of two dangerous men.  

___ 

You don't become the fiancé of one of the most powerful mafia bosses in the city without understanding exactly how gritty and depraved the world truly is...and how to thrive in the inferno. 

After five years spent under his controlling thumb, Daniela knows her position with a man like Vincent Stacatto is precarious, but as long as she plays by the rules of his "game", she's safe....

Until she's taken captive by the devil. 

Kidnapped by a rival crime lord, Daniela becomes a pawn between two powerful forces, and just another casualty in a bloody game of chess. But to get to the top, and stay at the top, you have to fight dirty and hold nothing back, because the most dangerous piece on the board isn't the King. 

It's the queen. 

This is a dark romance that contains mature subject matter not suitable for those under 18.

AWFUL ROBOTIC NARRATION

I was ready to stop this audiobook as soon as I heard the female narrator’s robotic voice (chapter 1) - however, I persevered and made it through to chapter 3. But, in the end, I just had to give up before hearing the story for the sake of a) my sanity and b) if I had of gone any further I’m sure my ears would’ve started to bleed. IMO, Bree Elaine should not be hired to narrate ANY audiobooks.. unless she’s the voice of a computer, robot or machine - then she’d absolutely be my first pick. Come on Audible.. this is a total waste of time, effort and a credit. WORTH A CREDIT? Err what do you think?.. yup, is not just a no.. it’s a Hell NO!! And it’s such a shame because it could’ve been a good story.. so I feel sorry for this author and her work.

Dark! Very Dark!

This is the first book in the Beautiful Monster Series, a Dark Romance. This story is intense, and dark! Daniela’s story is heartbreaking. She is extremely strong, and resilient. She is caught up between two twisted men. Dante is dark, broken, revengeful, and enigmatic. Vincent is ruthless, and brutal. The storyline is enthralling, and intricate, filled with violence, darkness, and twists and turns. This story is not for the faint-hearted. Bree Elaine and Patrick Morgan did an interesting and captivating reading of the story. Looking forward to listen to Refrain, Espi and Chloe's story, the next book in the Series. Lana Sky is definitely one of my favorite Dark and Twisted Romance Books Authors.

Love This Book!!!!

Can't wait for book 2....so I understand why some say the narration isn't any good. I found a solution by bumping the speed to 1.6 and it was perfect!!! the story is sooo good and worth the listen!!! Give the book a chance. this is one of my favorite authors and I can't NOT listen to her books!!! when i don't care for a narrator I find a solution :)
