Book Summary: 

Beauty is about to tame her beast…
Researcher Maggie Donovan has no luck with men, and it doesn’t help that she can’t 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…

REVIEW by Monique
Benjamin Gale III is the CEO of his
family’s pharmaceutical company – Gale Incorporated. Benjamin had dedicated his
past five years to his work in the company after attending Harvard becoming
emotionless and a workaholic. At the office, his determination and ambition
earned him a nickname from his employees, The Beast, except from one employee –
Maggie Donovan.

easily inspire a rock ballad. But Maggie – she was different.”
Maggie was a pharmaceutical researcher who
recently moved to New York, which would explain why she was so sweet, kind, and
quick to offend her boss, Mr. Gale, when others called him – The Beast. Mr.
Gale did not intimidate Maggie, but awaken certain lady bits of her body.

little under two hundred pounds, was thirty-three years old…and wore a size
thirteen shoe. I know way too much about him. Stalker.”
One late night while they were both
working late, Benjamin decides to invite Maggie to join him for dinner in his
office. While having dinner, Benjamin’s mother appears uninvited and catches
Maggie in an uncompromising position under the table.

her boss’s feet…”
Benjamin’s mother quickly misinterprets the
entire situation and starts to threaten to take Benjamin’s position away from
him for having relations with an employee, which such relations are ban. Caught
between the tension of her Boss and his vile mother, Maggie announces her
engagement to her billionaire boss without thinking and without his permission.

company. That’s why he can’t date other women, why he didn’t show up last
night. And it makes all of your threats empty ones, too. You can’t fire me.
So-yeah. He already wins, because he has me.” Mrs. Gale’s jaw dropped. Finally
the woman shut up.”
BEAUTY AND THE BOSS is a modern twist to
the fairytale ‘Beauty and the Beast’, which I surely enjoyed both characters
fighting their own internal beasts while discovering the beauty within each

know what life will throw at you, or how things will go, but this isn’t a
mistake. And you sense that, too, which is what scares you so much.”
