Back Cover Blurb:

This box set is a complete collection of the Bearing The Monster's Baby series and contains parts 1-5.

Psychology major student Margery Adams has always had an attraction to danger. Love hurts and sometimes the most passionate relationships in life are also the deadliest. But nothing she knows about herself or human nature can prepare her for Martin Valmont, a bad seed college dropout with a mysterious past and an inhumanly vicious temper.

Everybody warns her against getting involved with Martin, but Margery can’t help her attraction. There is something truly evil, truly monstrous about Martin—from his unnaturally seductive voice to his aggressive flirting, to his strange behavior when he sees a half moon.

Her strange relationship with Martin is incendiary and grows increasingly dangerous as she dares to love the most notorious man in town. The only thing scarier than Martin’s temper is his vulnerability. And the only thing deadlier than his wrath is his uncontrollable passion.

This series contains unrestrained sex, adult language and dangerous situations. For adult readers only.

My Review:

This is one of those stories that has promise but missed the mark for me. Thornton writes from the heroine`s perspective in a manner that didn`t quite grip me. Her dispassionate look at everything around her made it hard to get into the story. I also felt as if I was being told a story rather than being drawn into the world surrounding the characters.

I found the interactions between the main characters quite stilted at times. It didn`t quite make sense at times. There were also characters thrown into the mix that I can`t quite figure out the purpose of. Trying to figure out their actual role detracted from the overall plot of the story for me.

Overall, this story had promise but just didn`t quite do it for me. It has heat and intricacies, but in my opinion, needed more development and realism.
