Book description:

Hidden away from society by his criminal father, there lives a man who has never entered the outside world. Now, having taken over his father’s business, he has all the money and power he could dream of, yet still he refuses to let himself be viewed by the rest of society.

Traumatised by an event in her past, Lily Drayton has a phobia of being touched. Though she helps people externally with her skills as a laser therapist, she refuses to let anyone in, emotionally or physically. When Lily is kidnapped on the way home from work one evening, she discovers she’s not the only person who keeps themselves cut off from the rest of the world.

A man owns her now—a man both dangerous and enigmatic. Drawn by his dual beauty and hidden pain, he awakens something inside her, something she believed was long dead. Brought to a room without windows, she’s given an impossible task: to make her owner acceptable to the outside world.

Can altering his face change who he is as a man, or is he truly a monster, both inside and out?

A huge thank you to Marissa Farrar for the ARC of this book. As usual I am left bereft at having the book end and looking forward to more.

Two people holding themselves apart from the world, each for different reasons. Monster has never been farther than the boarders of his own property. A life of being told he was less than human and living with a father who makes him feel his birthmark is something to hide. Lily holds onto a terrible secret that keeps her emotionally detached while holding everyone at arms length.

When Monster has to change his business dealings and chance venturing out into the big bad world he kidnaps his best chance at appearing to the world without the birthmark that has secreted him away his whole life. What he doesn't expect is the way she makes him feel.

Lily is abducted, beaten, treated less than human and finds herself a prisoner by the man who paid to have her abducted. She should hate him. She should want to hurt him. She should... but she doesn't.

This is a gripping tale of the journey that brings these two together. I highly recommend this book and anxiously look forward to the next chapter in this trilogy!

This is the first book I've read by this author. It's her first dark story and I totally loved it.

Apart from reading a few teasers I basically jumped into this story blind and I'm so glad I did. The author had me gripped from start to finish. The writing is flawless and I liked how the author added her own uniqueness to the storyline.

The characters came across as real to me and I could understand their pain and fears.

Monster has been held captive all his life. He only knows what his father has taught him. He has grown up believing he's a monster.

Lily is kidnapped and held captive. She has known a life of solitude as her memories keep her in the past. She keeps everyone at a distance.

Both Monster and Lily are hurting from the past. Neither are sure how to move on. Can they help each other or will they cause even more pain for one another??

This book has dark themes so it isn't for the faint hearted. Having said that I thought the author did a great job and I'm looking forward to reading more of Monster and Lily's story.
