Peek Inside Beauty and the Boss

Researcher Maggie Donovan has never had much luck with guys. It doesn't help that she's developed a massive crush on her sexy boss, Benjamin Gale III, also known as the "The Beast." When Ben finds himself in a tight situation, Maggie defies all the rules about office romances and announces she's his fiancée—jeopardizing both her career and the future of the company. In Ben's arms—and in his bed—Maggie's everything he could ever want...but if the Beast doesn't let her go, they'll both lose everything.

Beauty is about to tame her beast…

Researcher Maggie Donovan has no luck with men, and it doesn't help that she can' keep her eyes off of her sexy boss – the one everyone else in the office calls The Beast. Relationships in the office are forbidden. So no one is more surprised than Maggie when she pretends to be his fiancée to save him during a difficult situation. Not only has she put her job on the line, but the future of the company.

Billionaire Benjamin Gale III doesn’t believe in love or romance, but the look on his mother’s face when Maggie tells her that she’s his fiancée is worth millions. Instead of firing her for her insubordination, he goes along with the ruse. In his arms–and in his bed–she’d be everything he could ever want…which is why he can’t have her.

But if he doesn’t let her go, they’ll lose everything…

A very quick romantic read. I just need this kind of book after reading some mindfucky book, to release the tension and all. One thing I didn't connect with, with the title being Beauty and The Boss (inspired by Disney's Beauty&the Beast) but to me the story fits more to Cinderella.... ...more
