Viktor Adamovic defied science. Literally. He was a monster who’d been stitched together from multiple, um, donors and resurrected centuries ago. Lucy liked him immediately. But the protective, possessive beast he kept leashed beneath his polished exterior? She wanted that guy in a big way.

It seemed like the perfect solution to her problems and his. And in a fairy tale, that would’ve been their happy ending.

MY IMPRESSIONS OF THIS BOOK:
Halloween may be over but readers will find this book the perfect treat as apparent opposites find a sweet and sensual connection that kept me glued to the pages with its unique and unforgettable storyline. With its modern-day take on the Frankenstein legend, Ms. Jordan grabbed reader's attention from the very first page to the last through witty banter and a charming romance that warmed my heart.
Viktor Adamovic isn't your parent's Frankenstein monster. He might've been put together one piece at a time but beneath his polished exterior lies the real monster...a protective and commanding beast whose scenes with Lucy West were combustible. It makes them a compelling pair, a formidable pair, who come together to wage war against the people and events of his past in a relationship that might've started out as a marriage of convenience but soon became all too real and meaningful to them both.
On a whole this was a quick read, one that sucked me in from the very start. It's a cleverly crafted tale that beautifully balanced a sweet and sexy romance with pain from the past. It fueled so many different emotions in me too...warming my heart one moment, then making me blush, before leaving me with a smile on my face the next. Readers looking for a unique romance, one that breaks the mold, will definitely want to add this book to their shelf while hoping that Ms. Jordan breaks more storytelling molds in the future!
My rating for this is an A.
*I got this book from the author for review in exchange for my honest opinion.
Isabel Jordan writes because it’s the only profession that allows her to express her natural sarcasm and not be fired. She is a paranormal and contemporary romance author. Isabel lives in Indiana with her husband, eleven year-old son, a neurotic Shepherd mix, and a ginormous Great Dane mix who answers to the name Jerkface. (Don't feel bad for him. He's really a jerk.)
