REVIEW: DARLING BEAST

BOOK: DARLING BEAST

AUTHOR: ELIZABETH HOYT

My rating: 5 stars!

I’m loving this series by Elizabeth Hoyt! Once again, she’s written some characters that have stolen my heart. I also enjoy reading those little stories at the beginning of every chapter.

The hero in this story is Apollo Greaves. He is pure sin just waiting to happen. I really love that he is unable to speak in the first part of the book. I find him seductive and totally sexy (even though he is written to not be very good looking), I look past all that. He captures my heart by how he befriends Indio AND Daffodil, the way he oozes sex appeal around Lily (the heroine), and how he is just pure MALE.

“I’m sorry it ever happened to you,” he whispered, catching her chin and lifting her face to his. “No one should have to bear witness to the worst that men can do, and especially not you.”

Her lips curved in amusement. “Especially me? Why should I be sheltered in particular?”

“Because,” he said, pulling her into his lap, “you are my light and my laughter, and if you would let me, I would spend the rest of my life protecting you from everything that is ugly.”

“That can’t be done,” she whispered. “To live is to see both the beauty and the ugliness of life.”

“Perhaps not,” he said stubbornly, “but that wouldn’t stop me from trying. Every day I want to see your eyes alight with happiness.”
……………………………………………………………………

Lily is a great heroine. She’s easy to like and enjoy. She’s not overly emotional like some heroines. She loves Indio and is a wonderful mother. She’s smart and I love the fact she writes amazing plays. She and Apollo take things slow (love this in a story!) and develop a steamy relationship. The love scenes are wonderful.

I highly recommend this book if you enjoy a fantastic historical romance. It has a little bit of everything from action, murder, suspense, and humor. I love when humor is throughout a book. And a sweet little dog by the name of Daffodil had me laughing more times than I could count! This seriously didn’t take me long to read. I was finished before I wanted to be.
