I'm the guy you love to hate. In every story in my life, I seem to end up playing the villain - and I've got the scars to prove it. That role works fine for me, because I'm sure as hell not anyone's hero. I run my life and my empire with an iron fist - until she knocks my tightly controlled world off its axis. She's nobody's damsel in distress, but I can't help but want to save her anyway. I guess we're about to find out if there's a hero buried...beneath these scars.

When I started this listen I really didn't think I was going to like Titan (the hero) oh yes, he was a handsome, sexy Billionaire however he was also arrogant, self absorbed and self-serving too. But I should have known better, because in the skilful hands of Meghan March, she didn't change his character but rather let in flaws and vulnerabilities and gave him someone worthy to love and be loved by so he could forgive himself for a tragedy in his past.... and that someone was Yve.
Yve had a lot of demons in her closet.... an abusive marriage, a dishonorable family history and a violent and possessive ex that was about to be released from Prison. However she was strong, feisty and an independent businesswoman who was managing a Vintage women's designer clothes shop. But slowly the threats to herself, and the business she loved, mounted and her salvation would come from the arms of the one man she least liked..... the obnoxious, demanding, challenging and frustrating Titan.
Somehow these two characters were drawn to each other, they were very similar - both were hard working, focused, independent and both had scars, both mentally and physically, put there by their pasts. They were both also drawn to each other and, even though the dislike and animosity was there, they both craved the others touch... which led to some passion filled encounters. Then, as the threat level rose and the danger escalated, so too did their feelings for one another and an unbreakable bond started to take shape. But it wasn't until lives were threatened and blood was spilled that all secrets were outed, feelings were shared and a HEA was reached.... and, even then, Titan had to do it his way.
A hero who I had to warm to and a heroine who I respected (but made one dumb-ass move) led to a very entertaining push/pull relationship that started off as just sex but ended up being a strong and loving partnership. There was sub plots of boardroom deals, backhanders and in your pocket bribes as well as the tense dynamics of characters from the previous book. The narration, as always, was great and added to the full enjoyment of this very entertaining listen.
Worth a credit? Meghan March is an auto-download Author and this book shows why.... because I can trust that she will deliver complex characters who I'll fall in love with, give me an exciting plot and pepper it with angst, drama and suspense. So YES creditworthy.

Scars, Secretes, and Steamy Romance!
Meghan March's Beneath Series is an outstanding, and it's hard for me to choose a favorite. I love them all! Each book is a well written treat, and have the right mix of drama, steamy sex scenes, romance, twists, and a little mystery too. The chemistry she creates between the characters is mouth-watering perfection. Once I started listening, I completely devour them, and cannot recommend them enough!
Lucas Titan is the character you would love to hate. Introduced in a prior story, Lucas was not above blackmailing, and as a billionaire, he was arrogant, pushy and used to getting his way. However, in Beneath These Scars, we get to see a different side of Lucas, a more vulnerable Lucas and learn why he's so driven and determine to prove himself. The attraction between Lucas and Yve was instant, off the charts, and you could feel it.
Yve may not have been rich like Lucas, but she was his equal in so many ways. She was strong, independent, determined and a survivor with a past. However, when her past is released from prison, Titan becomes her rock.
Sebastian York and Andi Arndt are two of the best narrators, and do a stellar job bringing the story and characters to life. They definitely give this story the "WOW" factor!
Well worth every minute, credit or sale! Highly recommend for those who love a well rounded romance with lots of heat that's not too dark.
