You know, an easy tell for me if a book is good or not – for me at least – is the ability to suck me into the story. Which this book failed horribly to do.
When I was reading this book, I was in the subway. And it turned out, I was more interested in what the couple standing beside me was bickering about rather than reading the book. That was when I know this one just isn't for me and me continuing to force the book down my throat just won't work.
As far as I read, there should not be ...more

Holy. Fucking. God.
This book was so fucking dark and so fucking dirty, it’s off the charts people! For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been dying to read a true dark romance- one that will make me fear for the characters and get me all hot and bothered. But let me tell you, when I started this book yesterday on the bus, I did not expect this.
Being a monster for Paulo García comes with a price, and Andre has long sinc ...more
Andre was a great H. He’s a total alpha, dark, broody and pretty badass. Nicky was amazing too! She’s feisty and sassy. They compliment each other perfectly!
This book is pretty dark and at times violent so if you don’t like this type of romance you might not enjoy this book. I love dark romance and this one was at times a little too much for me but it was still a winner. I really liked that it also had suspense, drama and a good dose of hot sexy times. Th ...more

Nicky shows up at Paulo Garcia’s to save her brother. Unfortunately she underestimates how much of a nasty man Paulo is. Andre is one of Paulos men. When he sees Nicky something happens and he wants to protect her. Can he do what he’s gotta do and save Nicky?
I would have liked Nicky to put mor ...more
“Imperfect Monster” is a professionally written, suspenseful novella with enough intrigue to keep it fast paced and the reader highly entertained. The antihero or hero depending upon your proclivity is extremely hot, dominant and demanding. The heroine could be considered bright and intelligent or TSTL depending upon your perception (personally, I think we all have a little Nicky in us). The intimacy is fairly well balanced with story-line and I view the issue of consent as ...more
Dark romance/mob/brooding alphas/hot sex/guns/dubious consent/ is my g spot. And I don’t want to brag or anything, but my g spot was touched by every damn one of those. Good job, Jennifer Bene you’ve done what no man can do.
Andre is literally every damn thing. I love the darkness that lives insi ...more

Nicky's brother Chris owes Paulo García’ money which has placed him in the hospital. Trying to keep him safe she goes to Paulo with $20,000 to pay off his debt. But Chris owes more than that and they decided to keep her to pay off the renaming debt.
Andre tries to stay out of what is going on with Nicky and Paulo but his attraction to her is to strong.
Andre goes to Paulo offering to pay off the remaining debt to 'own' Nicky.
That was my hope when I read Monster in the Heroes Undercover anthology. And here it is, the story from beginning to end.
Ms Bene turned this short into a tight ...more
This is the first time Jennifer has written characters in the first person and she nailed it, I loved getting the first person view into the characters and their story.
Andre was devilishly sexy, and full of a darkness thst swirled around just b ...more
Nicky's temper is as big as Texas. So is her mouth. Of course that particular orifice land her in a heap of trouble. There's only one person who can save her.....Andre.
Bene does an excellent job with creating and shaping Andre's character from page one. He's an onery son of a gun although he has his reasons. He's in no moo ...more
Nicky was a brave, feisty girl, who unfortunately had the bad habit of speaking without thinking at times, which gets her into trouble. Andre is the big, quiet guy that everyone is a little scared of, and nobody ever knows what he's thinking. Seeing the two of them meet, and how their relationship develops ...more
“She shouldn’t have come here. She was innocent in this. A stupid, innocent, honey-skinned girl. But she’d already handed herself over to the devil to try and save her brother — even if she didn’t realize it yet.”
One of Paulo‘s henchmen is Andre who is huge, tattooed and scary as He||. When Andre decides he wants Nicky for himself, everythin ...more
Andre, one of Paulo's monsters, will beat, maim and kill on command and he has decided he wants Nicky for his ...more
I am huge fan of Jennifer Bene. She is one hell of a talented author and she always surprised me every time with her flow of words and her addictive books that slay me each and every time. She is a dark author who writes some of the most messed up scenes in books ever and I end up reading them and enjoying them. I guess I am messed up and I like it. Jennifer Bene produces an A class of dark and disturbing. Just lik ...more

There's only so many captive stories you can read before they all blend in. Hands up, I'm a dark romance reader. So, yeah. I've read it all. It seems my favorite genre has died. 😏 Or I'm suffering from Criminal Minds syndrome and nothing surprises me.
I want a fiery connection between the characters. I definitely got that, in the beginning. It was wrong, but so fucking exhilarating. I still feel the same after finishing. Yet, I knew the story surroundin ...more
This is not a romance in my opinion.. I have so much that I didn't like about this book. Warning possible spoilers... He rapes her, he gives her away to be raped and very hurt, there's no romance, she loves him only because she's raped, he's an actual cop but does this. To top it off he talks her into accepting to be raped and hurt by someone else and then falls asleep while this is happening to her in another room. ...more
Andre is cold, ruthless, vicious and Paulo Garcia's monster. He had swallowed the bitter pill whole and learned to deal with it until Nicky stormed into the house like some avenging Valkyrie. She was brave, stupid and beautiful. Nickly just wanted to save her brother. She showed up with an envelope full of cash and a smart mouth. She found herself in a den of monsters. Andre wishes he could say he wa ...more
Nicky who walks into a whole new world with severe consquences and a whole lot of darkness and hatred to save her brother from the sadistic drug lord Paula Garcia and let me tell you he is scary and unpredictable and a whole lot of intense.
I admired Nicky she was one strong brave woman for what she endured and I was so afraid for her not knowing what was coming next, and the control of her sassy ...more
Andre is a dark hero with demons to spare. His inner conflict was addictive, and I was hypnotized by him almost immediately. Hot as Hades, exhilarating for days, and a sinful pairing that started dubious at best. These two set fire to my kindle, and I couldn't look away for a second. With every "belleza" he uttered, I fell deeper into Andre's hypnotic web of danger, intensity, and off the ch ...more
