Title: Sexy Beast
Series: Gypsy Heroes #1
Author: Georgia Le Carre
Release Date: July 25, 2015
Sexy Beast is the first of a sexy new stand-alone three book series titled Gypsy Heroes. All have HEA and are interlinked with Crystal Jake, the complete Eden series.
He's forbidden and everything I should loathe in a man. Arrogant, foul-mouthed, inked, a bare-knuckle fighter, thinks he’s God’s gift to women, and yet … one look into his magnetic eyes and I am doing crazy things I've never imagined doing.
I tell myself just one taste — what harm can it do?
But what happens if one taste is not enough…
Billy Joe Pilkington
She's the hottest girl I know, and I've been lusting for her since I was old enough to fuck, but she's also a spoiled little fucking princess who swoons about the place like she's something special.
She wasn't so high and mighty after her first lesson on my knees.
Well I’ve got news for her — I'm gonna kick down her walls, strip away the façade, and take what I want. And this time I'll keep what's mine...
The Edens are back…
Having read the Crystal Jake series I couldn’t wait to dive into this story with Layla Eden, Jake’s sister, as the heroine. Layla is the lone sister of an adoring family and, while not spoiled, she knows she is loved unconditionally.
BJ Pilkington is a bad boy through and through. He keeps his emotional distance from everyone while acknowledging the “manwhore” title may be well-deserved. Dangerous and dark, labeled a criminal, BJ is everything her family doesn’t want for her but Layla cannot help what she feels.
“A totally misunderstood, half-man, half-beast, hiding a suffering heart.”
Skirting on the wrong side of the law, Billy Joe knows Layla should be out of his reach but when circumstances put her in his path he cannot resist her any longer.
The attraction between Layla and BJ was strong and the intimate scenes between them were scorching, to put it mildly. Frolicking in the forest has definitely taken on a whole new meaning.
A touch of Romeo and Juliet meets James Dean with a whole lot of Peyton Place and All My Children, this story covered a dizzying amount of ground. From an unusual courtship to a rather abrupt ending, my emotions were pulled from one highly-charged circumstance to another. I liked the main characters and the entire Eden clan brought support and unceasing love to the mix.
Overall a good read and the start of a new series I will be following.
