The heroine: Daphne Laurel – she became CEO of Belladonna after her father suffered a stroke. She is working with her friend Adam on a merger of their two companies. Her passion is to work in the lab as a researcher and she is on the brink of a discovery that could help a lot of people. When she attends a ball in New Olympus in order to rub shoulders with philanthropists who fun her research.
The Hero: Logan Wolfe – he hates all the wealthy people that attend events like the ball in New Olympus. Tonight he is enacting his revenge plan against Dr. Laurel, Daphne’s father who once stole something from him and did some horrible things to him. He attends the masquerade ball, dressed as a Gargoyle which closely matches the beast he thinks he is.
The Story: Every year on the day of her mother’s death, Daphne has found a single rose in her office from a secret admirer whom she knows nothing about. The security footage in her building shows nothing each year. This year, she gets a rose the day of the Ball and another at the ball. When she is led through a labyrinth to meet her admirer.
This book is told in dual points of view via dual narration. The narration is done by Brian Meslar and Kelsey-Ann O’Dowd. I enjoyed both of their voices. Kelsey-Ann has a soft and feminine voice which sounded perfect for the naïve Daphne who spent her younger years focused on her studies and is quite awkward around men. Brian has a deep and gravely voice which he made even rougher for the Beast (Logan). However, I would rather have heard his regular voice than that fake sounding rough voice.
The story is good and the romance is super steamy. For my tastes it has a bit too many intimate scenes, it seems all the intimate scenes are just a way to drag the story out for longer since the story itself doesn’t have enough meat to keep it going for three books. The parts where there was more story seemed a bit slow moving.
