"Because You Are Mine: The Complete Novel" by Beth Kery


SERIES: Because You Are Mine #1 - #8
PUBLISHER: Headline Eternal
GENRE: Contemporary/Erotic Romance
SOURCE: Borrowed

It's at a cocktail party in her honour that she first meets him—and the attraction is immediate for graduate student Francesca Arno. It's also bewildering. She's not used to such a wholesale sexual response to a stranger. Enigmatic, darkly intense, with a commanding presence, billionaire Ian Noble completely unnerves her. And she likes it. For Ian, Francesca is the kind of woman he can't resist—one that comes all too rarely: a true innocent. But he can sense in her a desire to open up, to experiment, to give herself to the fantasies of a man in control. The first kiss, the first caress, the first challenge for a woman who craves what she's never had—a man who gets what he wants...


I've been meaning to try this author for quite a while now, so I thought I'd ask my bestie—who loves Kery's writing—if I could borrow this one. I mean, who better than asking a girl whose name is the same of the leading female character here, right? Thank you, Francesca!

For those who are new to this title, it was originally published as an eight-part serial. I tried serials in the past and they didn't seem to work particularly well for me, but since this one was turned into a novel, I wanted to see how it played. Although the pace is still the one of a serial, I enjoyed it and kinda curled up my toes for almost the whole read. Let me tell you, this author knows how to write a steamy scene! She puts her vivid imagination to very good use and makes each scene last pages and pages... Oh my, those pages... She deserves kudos for the way she describes pure hotness sexual desires/needs. You might find that it's not a matter of liking Ian Noble, but more of how bad do you wanna be Francesca Arno?

Hot and steamy, this book is for everyone who is looking for a pleasurable escape. And if you feel like you need more—so demanding—you can always check what the other characters have to offer next.

RATING: 3.5/5
