Because You Are Mine Because You Are Mine #1

Easy part But when passion opens the door to an intimacy neither has known can a man known for being unbendable learn to lov We have another rich guy who had a bad childhood and now has to be in control of everything Ian meets Francesca and has to have her While Francesca embraced his sexual domination too fast and too willingly I just could not warm up to this guy He was too closed up and too cold He also was good at buying his way into her favor after he screwed upI am not a fan of giving someone the right to punish you for whatever reason There is too much room to abuse this and Ian is a good example of this He would turn her ass red for whatever imagined infraction he perceived she did After a while I realized that whenever he would punish her it was because he could no longer deal he needed it to cope I would have respected him had he just told her I like to spank you for my pleasure and not make up excuses and putting her in the wrong Francesca being a virgin was just too willing to go along with everything Now it does seem that she enjoyed some of the spankings but the way Ian treated her and the reasons just did not work for meI did enjoy watching Francesca grow and even stand up to Ian at the end

Beth Kery ´ 9 review

When they met the instant attraction was unmistakablea purely exuisitely physical charge Succumbing to their desires is the We all know that ultimately a novel is a collaboration between author and reader An author usually writes the book that heshe would want to read and then each reader synthesizes the words absorbing them through the filter of his or her own experiences tastes background and s with the end result being a uniue reading experience No two readers will ever experience a story in exactly the same way Because of that it always intrigues me to read negative reviews of a book I have loved or vice versa This was especially true today when I read some of the low rated reviews of Beth Kery s Because You Are Mine an erotic romance that I just finished and loved Foremost among the criticisms was that it is in many ways a copy of Fifty Shades of Grey There are similaritieswe have Ian the dominant alpha billionaire hero with a troubled past and an affinity for BDSM who needs to punish and control Francesca the beautiful naturally submissive heroine Ian like Christian Grey professes that he can offer sexual pleasure but not love or romance Further a few of the scenes set ups and secondary characters in Because You Are Mine are deeply evocative of Fifty While these similarities made a negative impression on some readers for me it was just the opposite And we can t forget Fifty itself was the retelling of another tale Far from being a hindrance I loved seeing how Kery would take these similarities and make the story her own and she did not disappoint The caliber of her writing the crafting of her characters and her beautiful language make Because You Are Mine very compelling fiction erotic writing at its finest Writing in third person my preference because it allows an author to tell a broader richer story Kery took me on an emotional journey with Ian and Francesca One of my favorite elements of the novel is the fact that years prior to their first meeting Francesca an artist had seen Ian from the rear and been moved enough to capture his desolation on canvasShe d painted him four years ago That s what he was telling her that he knew she d observed him walking the dark lonely streets in the dead of the night while the rest of the world slumbered warm and content in their beds Francesca hadn t realized the identity of her inspiration at the time nor had he probably known he was being observed until he saw the painting but there could be no doubt of it Ian Noble was the cat who walked by himself And he d wanted her to know itThat s a beautiful scene one that speaks to the heart of the connection between these two characters When it comes to erotic romance Beth Kery is at the top of her game and the top of my listThere were also a few things about this book that I loved on a personal note eg when Ian takes Francesca to Paris they stay at the Hotel George V Apparently it s the hotel of choice for fictional billionaires I have it on good authority that Heaven in the Dark s David Swift always stays there Also as the book is set largely in Chicago the protagonists visited many of my favorite spots Dinner at Trump s hotel Yes thanksIn summary the person that I am my tastes my experiences had a fulfilling journey with these characters For me Because You Are Mine was a work of beautiful nuanced writing and each turn of the page was time well spent

    This book was ok I must admit I struggled with the first 50% of the book and felt rather bored with the same monotonous sex scenes However the second half altered my opinion I began to warm to the characters Despite some of Ian's harsh words it was apparent he really loved Francesca I enjoyed Francesca's defiant personality at times challenging their relationship and encouraging this exceptionally organised and structured man to
