The entire premise of this book was fantastic...indentured servitude, undeniable attraction met with a refusal to accept. I loved the adventure that the author was taking us on...but...the ending of this book sucked, with a big ole exclamation point! I wanted an happily ever after and I was left hanging. It was not until I reread the publisher summary that I realized that it was the first part of a three part series...that was a relief and now I am anxiously awaiting the next part of this series and will be better prepared when I finish part 2, knowing there is a part 3. Love the characters and I think that the narrator, Michael Pauley does an exceptional job!! Waiting patiently (mostly) for the next installment...

In what is a familiar story to anyone whose read or watch Beauty and the Beast, Nick is “given” to Bane for a year of indentured servitude so that Nick’s family can regain a chance at their family fortune.
Bane hates Nick’s family for it’s greed and avarice and lumps Nick in with the bunch. Nick, on the other hand, is actually nothing like his family and is actually about to split with them due to these differences. But when faced with the option of helping them out he chooses family loyalty over his own self interest.
While in Bane’s care Nick finds himself slowly developing feelings for the cold but enthralling Bane. Bane, too, finds there is more to Nick than he’d thought.
This is the first book in a three part series. Knowing my own impatience, I wish I’d waited because we are left with a definite cliff hangar at the end.
This is a very slow burn romance between our two MCs and it’s done very well. It’s a great re-telling of an old fairy tale with a male/male twist.
While I definitely enjoyed this and was captivated the moment I started listening, I was a little disconcerted by the Nick/Tiger interactions… but I think it was tame enough for most people.
Audio: Michael Pauley does a great job with this. He gives it a very dark air and handles the various accents with ease. Highly recommend this as a way to enjoy this story.
