Beauty Dates the Beast
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
Last month, I started this series out of order. I wanted to try it out so I picked up the second installment to test out because it was the one with the highest goodreads ratings. I could tell there was a backstory I was missing out on but it wasn't too bad. It earned a shiny four stars from me and I knew it was a series I wanted to continue. So, now I'm starting in proper order. Yay!
Beauty Dates the Beast is the first installment in Jessica Sims's adult, urban fantasy series titled: Midnigh ...more
I do look forward to more of the series with sexy were-cougars!

Bathsheba and her sister work at the Midnight Liaisons Agency, which is a dating service for the para ...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
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

What's Bathesheba to do when she's being pulled in so many directions?
I enjoyed this story. It wasn't too heavy and it wasn ...more
But this one is the bad trope of all existing bad tropes. I started this after I read book two in this series, which I also didn‘t like too much, because the characters and the plot were weak and shallow. But nevertheless, I decided to give this one a try, cause you know, according to book two, Bathsheba was the strong sister. How I fucking wish.
It already started off ...more
Pretty much right from the get go, this book had m ...more
I liked the cynical attitude of the MC at the beginning. I thought that this was going to be funny, even though there were huge holes, blinking like a neon sign, in the mystery part of this. Then before the halfway mark, I understood, why the story was suffering like a mortally wounded animal....the author's "strength" (those are air quotes) wasn't the actual plot and its construction, but the trashy romance. UGHHHH. ...more

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
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
Let’s discuss suspension of disbelief. In order to enjoy any fiction at all, one must be prepared to accept some level of “that could never happen”. This is esp ...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
I liked the characters. Beau is a super hunky alpha werecougar who has a lit ...more
Briefly we meet two sisters who work for a supernatural dating service! Yes I know why would hot shifters etc need this?! That's just the start of this joyful story that features enough twists and turns to well frankly keep this reader turning the pages! The eldest sister Bathsheba (love that name) works har ...more
The heroine is beyond annoying. The storyline was interesting enough, but I just didn't mesh well with this author's writing style. ...more
