Monster by Francette Phal!!!

Accidental Gold digger.
Circumstance forced Eden Mercer to sell herself to Dominic Armstrong for half a million dollars and in return she is to play the dutiful wife in public and submit to him completely behind closed doors.
The Tyrant.
Dominic is Ruthless, manipulative and sadistic but Eden is determined not to break under his cruelty. But how does one persevere when in the clutches of a Monster?


Darra's Review:

The first thing I thought about the first 30 pages was OMFG! I don’t think I blinked for at least 30 minutes. Speaking of, I need new contacts. Right from the first page, it slaps you in the face and gets your attention. I felt for Eden in the beginning. And Dominic, let us just say I will not forget him as a main character. I am sure he will make one of my lists. But you have to read more to find out which one.

It was a really good plot that was unexpected. Both characters were cunning, deceitful but appealing.

There are life transformations that occur in this book and continued till the end. I truly liked the book and it is one I will remember. Which is huge because I can’t remember any name of the books I read. Surprising I still remember Sunny’s name.
I give the book a 4.5. Interesting all the way till the end. The expectation I had in the start of the book completely changed when I finished the epilogue. Read the book and find out why.

Sunny's Review:

This book had my mouth dropped from page one. I could not put the book down. You start out hating both characters and not knowing if they will ever redeem themselves. I realize most people will want to be on Eden's side from the beginning but I just didn't get on board with her. She was just as much to blame for her circumstances as Dominic was. As you go along you think ok I am going to be Team Eden but then you realize that she is just as deceitful as Dominic and can actually hold her own. Dominic is overbearing and cruel but Eden can be cold and manipulative too. I do like that she did take control of her life and did stand up to Dominic when it counted.
I was on the edge of my seat through this whole book. I mean I literally could not put it down and the whole time I kept thinking please let these people redeem themselves. I did stop reading when I had about 20% left because I knew what I wanted to happen but I was not sure the author was going to give me what I wanted. I am not going to tell you if it worked out the way I want it.
I am giving this book 4.6 stars out of 5. I can't tell you enough to go get this book. I will say it is not all sparkles and sunshine but you will be floored.

“Soon, sweetie, I promise,” he soothed. She moaned softly as he licked her ear, dropped soft warm kisses across her shoulder blades, he moved down her back, a wet tongue and hot mouth traced and kissed each vertebrae, making a slow and steady progress down her spine. It was a torturous progression that boiled the blood in Eden’s veins as she waited in bated anticipation. Breath stilled in her lungs, eyes widening when he drew apart her butt cheeks and ran his tongue down the wet crevice, from clit to the puckered rosebud of her hole and back again. It was undoubtedly one of the most erotic things he’d ever done to her body, and Eden didn’t know how to breathe properly. She gripped the sheets beneath her hands and bit down hard on her bottom lip to keep from screaming.
It was like a shot of adrenaline straight into her vein. It was blood vessels dilating, her heart galloping uncontrollably in her chest, it was gasping for breath when the air she drew in wasn’t enough. He owned her body, ate it like sun ripened peaches and drank the flowing juices of her weeping womanhood with his rapacious tongue. There were fingers there, slipping between the folds to dive deep into her blistering heat, while his thumb worked at her puckered hole, his wicked, wicked mouth showing Eden exactly how very little she knew her of own body. There was nothing but the explicitness of this act, the hyper awareness that made her feel like each inch of her body was struck by lightning, that killed her and gave her life all in one electrifying jolt. He was merciless and perfect, inviting her to shove her hips back and ride his face.
Death was imminent, sweet cataclysmic death seduced her into the gaping, welcoming arms of her orgasm. She plummeted, shattered into delicious little pieces on his tongue and fingers. Recuperating wasn’t in the stars for her as he gripped her hips and plunged into her depths in one long stroke. Pulling her arms and folding them at the small of her back, he held them there with one large hand as he sank in deeper, so deep that it hurt so good. Ass high in the air, face down in the sheets, Eden was at his complete mercy, filled to absolute capacity with his cock, and she whimpered, the vulnerability of her position giving her a sweet high.
“I’m going to beat this pussy, Eden, and you’re going to scream my name.”
And she did, a promise made completely true as he fucked her like a porn star. She screamed like the world was falling, his repeated strike against her G-spot making her see stars. It was too damn much, his jarring thrusts so deep that she could taste him, spurred her fall and she orgasmed on every inch of his cock.
Francette lives in Massachusetts with her amazingly supportive husband of ten years and her darling two year old son. Reading amazing books has led her to writing and she’s dabbled in fan-fiction before self-publishing her own works. She’s constantly thinking up new stories to write and does her best work when music is playing in the background. Romance is where she’s most comfortable but she hopes to one day venture in mystery novels. She has a weakness for coffee ice cream, tropical fruits and a good glass of wine.
