Beauty Dates the Beast (Midnight Liaisons #1)
Single human female to join charming, wealthy, single male were-cougar for a night of romantic fun—and maybe more.
Me: The tall, sensuous, open-minded leader of my clan.
You: A deliciously curvy virgin who’s intimately familiar with what goes bump in the night. Must not be afraid of a little tail. Prefer a woman who’s open to exploring her animal nature. Interest in...more
After devouring hundreds of paperback romances, mythology books, and archaeological tomes, she decided to write a few books of her own - stories with a wild adventure, sharp banter, and lots of super-sexy situations. She prefers her heroes alpha and half-dressed, her heroines witty, and she loves nothing more than watching them overcome adversity to fall into bed together.
If you are wondering why I'm quoting Myles' author blur ...more
But I might have managed to enjoy the book, if the heroine was not so excruciatingly idiotic. ...more
Being a fan of Jill Myles and her Succubus Diaries series along with having already read the first chapter or so, I had a pretty good feeling that I would like this book and I did.
I loved Bathsheba...she was just sooo funny. I loved how sh ...more
This was a fun, light, fast read. The funny back cover copy and a recommendation from an author I trust were enough incentive for me to give it a shot, and I'm glad I did.
The story was interesting and fast-paced, and I have to admit that I stayed up well past my normal bedtime to finish the book in one sitting. It's been a while since a book captured me that well.
I did have a couple is ...more
Bathsheba and her sister work at a dating agency especially for paranormal creatures. Enter Beau...were-cougar, sexy as hell bachelor, and head of the Alliance, an organization created for shifters who don't belong in "packs" like the wolves. He will be headed into heat in a week's time, and he needs a date to help him get through it. Although he is looking for a shifter, after speaking with Bath, he becomes enam ...more
This was a quick, fun read. Sometimes silly, often sexy, it's just what you'd expect from Jessica Sims (aka Jill Myles, author of the Succubus Diaries).
The synopsis (which is hilarious) shows that this book is on the lighter side and suggests that it will be filled with sexual situations. So as long as you keep your expect ...more
BEAUTY DATES THE BEAST, the first book in the Midnight Liaisons series by Jessica Sims (aka Jill Myles) is exactly what I hoped it would be based on the cover and description: super sexy, super fun, and full of super hot shifters.
Bathsheba is a human pencil pusher working at a paranormal dating service. She is fiercely protective of her younger sister Sara and has gladly sacrificed her own personal happiness in order to keep Sara safe from a werewolf p ...more
My first read by this author, and I'm not impressed!
My review might be bias, since I read this when I'm so tired. But I'm got more tired with a "familiar" paranormal trope and virginity things in this book. Add it with "hero-complex" and "TSTL moment" that the heroine has, make me irritated a lot. Even I know she got her name from Bible, "Bathsheba" is a kind of wei ...more
Pretty much right from the get go, this book had m ...more
This book is what it is and I think in hindsight I am trying to turn it into something else. This book IS a PARANORMAL ROMANCE. Yes it is also a little bit urban fantasy but it is paranormal romance first and foremost. So as a PNR it is a 4 star book but as a UF book it is 3 stars.
The world the characters live in is your normal were, va ...more
When another date is canceled, Bathsheba finds herself playing the role of date to Beau Russell, who is a clan leader. He does not seem phased that she is human, in fact shifters do ...more
I liked the characters. Beau is a super hunky alpha werecougar who has a lit ...more
So, the book is all coming from Bathsheba's POV, she is mostly sassy and funny, with occasional TSTL moments. While I liked her, the story is very one sided, you never get to know what the smexy fella thinks until he says it aloud. I prefer books with a mixed narrative, but I ca ...more
When I heard Jill Myles aka Jessica Sims was writing a new series I was beyond excited. I adore her Succubus Diaries series and knew any book written by her would be fantastic and Beauty Dates the Beast did not disappoint. ...more
If you are looking for a hot and funny paranormal to spark up your summer, then let me sell this book to you. In a nutshell, Bathsheba is a human female working for a paranormal dating agency. She takes the calls, meets with clients, sets up dating profiles and tries to arrange dates. Her job description might have to extend to dating them when Beau calls in and his arranged date fell through and he needs someone stat. After a few minutes on the phone wi ...more
It was a nice premise for a paranormal romance, but it suffered from several irritating tropes. The heroine is too stupid to live, the primary protagonists fell in love virtually at first sight, the villain was easy to spot although it surprised everyone in the story, and predictably the heroine had to run away from safety to move the story toward the climax.
It ends on a really insulting cliff hanger. A HEINOUS, unnecessary, gr ...more
Beauty Dates The Beast was a fast reading and cute book. I liked the heroine for the most part. (I see a trend where I don't really like the females..beginning to think I just want to be her soo I hate her just cause. *cough) Beau was a sexy alpha! The entire story was pretty cookie cutter for a paranormal romance but at least it was well written!
Funny and Sexy are always a good combo!
There was a softness and lightness to the book, it's how I like my PNR. We have Bathsheba who works for a dating agency, and Beau who is a shifter and wants to date her. The human! *gasps*
The drama is that her sister is a wolf shifter but is in hiding cos all wolves I saw her were asses. But they want her. Asses. Oh and something is after them, something else.
I understood Batsheeba and he ...more
