Because You Tempt Me (Because You Are Mine #1)
by Beth Kery (Goodreads Author)
Francesca Arno has been commissioned to create a grand centerpiece painting for the lobby of Ian Noble’s new skyscraper. It’s at a cocktail party in her honor that she first meets him—and the attraction is immediate for Francesca. It’s also bewildering. She’s not used to such a wholesale sexual response to a stranger. Enigmatic, darkly intense, with a commanding presence, Ian completely unnerves her. And she likes it.
For Ian, she’s the kind of woman he can’t resist—one that comes all too rarely: a true innocent. But he can sense in her a desire to open up, to experiment, to give herself to the fantasies of a man in control. The first kiss, the first caress, the first challenge for a woman who craves what she’s never had—a man who gets what he wants

Francesca must be punished.

Damn you Beth Kery..... LOL I first downloaded the first book needing a quick read then I could NOT stop reading each one. I stayed up all damn night, but so worth it.
What a brilliant idea with each book only being 2 chapters so you are just left hanging waiting for the next one. Thank goodness that all were out when I began her little journey.
I liked the journey of discovery between Ian and Francesca. Ian is a similar tortured misunderstood dominant man like Christian Grey and Gideon Cross. Which makes him broken and loveable in my books. I am such a sucker. Francesca is a stronger heroine than other books that are similar. There chemistry is great the sex scenes are naughty and steamy. My favorite.
The love story was a good one and I liked it being a mini series which in the end is really one larger book. I give it 4 thumbs up!
