I was raised on the streets, so I know things are rarely as simple as they appear—especially this rich girl showing up at my pawnshop demanding a job.

She’s the most tempting thing I’ve ever seen, and I’ll be damned if I can make her leave.

Shit just got complicated … but when it comes to her—I want complicated.

We’re both fighting our own demons, and our only chance at a

This man was wild, untamed- seemingly fearless- and yet his body jumped when I touched him. That was insanely seductive."

Lord, oh Lord but I loved me my lord. Where has this author been all my life with her deliciously sexy alphas? Because if the other 2 books were anything like this, then my method of reading things back asswards has seriously backfired on me and I missed out on 2 amazing books that I have every intention of going back and reading now.

Both had dark pasts and secret demon they are both fighting with. And they are just about to realize that some demons go faster when fighting together,

I listened to the Audible version of this book this time and I fell in love with Lord all over again. The narration was perfectly executed by both Andi Arndt and Sebastian York whose voice never ceases to amaze me.

This review is for the ebook version I read last year...

WOW.. what a read ! Beneath These Chains is the 3rd installment in the addictive Beneath Series. Loved Elle and Lord's story and read it in one sitting! This book has all the right elements I love in a romance story, a super hot

★★★ 3 Stars ★★★

Lord Robichaux is an tattooed hottie who owns a pawn shop on the wrong side of town, dealing in top grade goods.

Elle Snyder is good friends with Lord's brothers girlfriend, and one day she turns up at his shop demanding a job. Elle is part of the high society who normally wouldn't be seen dead working at a pawn shop, so Lord is highly suspicious of her motives for deciding she wants to sell second hand goods.

It's not long though before they give into their blatant chemistry though

Completely hooked on this series by Meghan March. Alpha heroes, spunky heroines and tattooed sexy goodness.
Do I need to mention the smoking hot sex scenes?

Thanks Lana, for recommending. Loved these.

It was the give and take with Lord that made it all work so well. It was the push and pull and ebb and flow. The natural rhythm of things that made being with him as easy as breathing.

My first Meghan March book and a huge success!!

How do I feel about this book?

It was a breath of fresh air.

A sassy heroine, who knew what she wanted, knew what her insecurities were and was the perfect combination of strength and vulnerability. Basically, I loved Elle. She knew what she

“Trust me, I’m not looking for anyone to chase me. In fact, the chase is decidedly unwelcome.” She jerked her head to the side, flipping a lock of that sexy-as-fuck red hair out of her face. “I’m the kind of girl who does the chasing herself. I see what I want, and I get it.”

Ahh, I loved this book! I barely ever write full-blown reviews anymore. But, damn it, for Lord, I will do just about anything. For Elle too. She was a pretty cool chick

I am saying this upfront. 

In the minority here.
This seems to be a situation of 'it's me, not you.' The book had everything a reader could look for, yet I couldn't seem to get my emotions in check.

Meghan March gives us a story of the 'bad boy, from the wrong side of the tracks' meets the ' high society, privileged princess.' Lord runs a pawn shop, Chains, selling upscale and higher end merchandise.  Elle wants to amuse herself, piss off her step-family, and she is actually looking for an expensi

First let me point out I have not read any of the other books in this series. This is my first time reading this author and it won’t be the last. I saw the cover though and I fell instantly in love with this book, and I’m glad the content didn’t let me down.

Lord (yes his real name) owns a pawn shop named Chains. We first meet the characters when Lord is firing a chick that has been stealing from him. In walks Elle and basically demands to be hired. She’s a bit of a rich ki
This was book three in the "Beneath series," and I have utterly fallen in love with all of the leading men from each three books! "Beneath These Chains" is hands down my favorite installment so far. This one was about Lord and Elle's falling in love and what a story it was! My favorite aspect to their story was that these two stuck together through all of the turmoil that was thrown their way..and believe me...they had a ton of chaos; but never once did they falter from their commitment to one a ...more

Elle decide to take a job at a Pawn shop on the wrong side of town when she finds herself unemployed. She thinks this will be her opportunity to find her late fathers watch that her mother gave to her coke head step-brother, who then sold it. Deciding that she isn't going to let the tattooed bad boy, shop owner tell her no, she barges into the shop and just starts working.

Meghan March serves up another winning addition to the Beneath series with Beneath These Chains. This is the third book in the series, and it’s filled with intrigue and suspense, plus all the steam I’ve come to expect from Ms. March. This story is about Lord—Con’s brother—and Elle—Vanessa’s best friend from Beneath This Ink.

Elle is a sassy, rebellious socialite who comes to work in Lord’s pawn shop of all places. She has enough baggage to fill an entire Samsonite collection. The women in this se

These books are so good. Beneath These Chains was amazing. You take two people scarred by their pasts, add an antagonistic gangster, also add a serial killer, and you've got a recipe for success. I already liked Lord from Beneath This Ink and I'm happy I was able to love him in this book. He's a real stand up guy. Devoted and loyal brother, friend, mentor, and boyfriend. Although there was no real OTT drama, the buildup towards solidifying a relationship between Lord and Elle was still enjoyable ...more

‘You don’t even have to try to tempt me. All you have to do is breathe, and I’m dying for you.’

This book was just what I needed.

So, the story starts when heroine Elle goes to Lord’s (yes that is his name lol, and great explanation how he got it btw) pawn shop and demands that he hires her. Yes demands. This girl knew what she wanted and didn’t back from it. I was loving her from the start. I won’t go into too much detail about story, just that the story

#Oh my Lord!!

In true Meghan March fashion, she delivers a deliciously, thrilling and intriguing cast and story line that will leave you invested from the start to the very end!

Having been with Meghan from the very beginning of her writing career, I have to say, that it’s been a pleasure to see her craft evolve, master, and grow.

This is the 3rd book in Beneath series and it is something around 3,5 stars for me, but not 4.

Our hero, Lord, is the brother of 2nd book’s hero, Con.
And our heroine, Elle, is the friend of 2nd book’s heroine Vanessa.

“Beneath These Chains” is promoted as the story of a "bad boy and the high society rich girl" but Lord is not a bad boy. I am sorry but having tattoos doesn’t make anyone a bad boy.

Lord’s big and built body and tattoos create a tough guy image but he is a guy with a good heart and g

The third book in the Beneath series brings us the story of Lord and Elle, and their story is fantastic! I love when an alpha hero goes up against a strong sassy heroine, and Lord and Elle have a sensational dynamic! They argue and banter, but their chemistry is electric, and the love story between these two was absolutely beautiful!

Lord is the older brother of Con, and Elle is the best friend of Vanessa – both from Beneath This Ink. They were both introduced in the last bo

This book is another winner in this series and for the author! I have loved every book in this series and it’s impossible to choose a favorite. It’s a great romance story with an alpha male, an independent woman and suspense.

Lord is the older brother of Con (from Beneath This Ink) and is the owner of the pawnshop ‘Chains’ (definitely an unique job that I haven’t read before). The pawnshop doesn’t make him a rich man, but he loves what he does. One day, he has to fire his

Ok as it stands right now this is my favorite of the series.
I don’t know if it was the banter between Lord and El or if it just was Lord but is story needed to be told and I am so glad it was.

I love that he is Con’s older brother, and I love that they have a relationship. But what I loved what how tough he seemed on the outside but how soft he was on the inside.

Now a lot happens in this book and I can’t tell you the specific because that would give away all the go

Lord, ooooh Loooord ⭐️

There’s a clear pattern in Meghan March’s Beneath series:

tattooed H/h ➡️ Charlie in Beneath This Mask, Con in Beneath This Ink and now Lord.

a deal being made between MCs ➡️ Simon not having sex with Charlie until she agrees to give him/the relationship a real chance, Con asking for three weeks of a having a fake relationship hoping to turn it into something real and now Lord agreeing to let Bree work for him and that thing with “never walk to work”.

I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler-free way. If you feel anything in my review is a spoiler and is not already hidden in spoiler brackets please let me know. Thank you.

Still listening to this series on Audio. I really like the male narrator. He has a really nice voice that works so well for this kind of book. The female narrator is okay too. These go fast for me cause I love listening to them.

I like how you already know a little about the characters before each book starts

Wow what a whirlwind!! Loved it though.
I'll be honest - this book caught my attention because of that super hot book cover and it did not disappoint. Lord was HOT. I love a hero that sees something he wants and works for it and that's exactly what Lord did when Elle walked into his pawn shop. I loved that Elle was a strong heroine, that she wasn't intimidated by Lord and would stand up to him but she still had a vulnerability about her. This book had some suspense, a little mystery, lots of hot sexy times and a sweet romance. This is ...more

ARC received for review

I've been drooling over the covers of the fist two books in this series, but I have issues with paying over $3 for an e-book. Now I'll probably break that rule cause this book was so awesome that I need to read about Con & Vanessa.

Oh my, Lord was some serious kind of hot and sexy, plus he was so stinkin' sweet to Elle. Now Elle was no slacker. She stood her ground and made him work for it. The two of them together was explosive. So did not see that person as the bad guy.
