Review : Beauty Dates the Beast by Jessica Sims

Single human female to join charming, wealthy, single male were-cougar for a night of romantic fun—and maybe more.

Me: The tall, sensuous, open-minded leader of my clan.

You: A deliciously curvy virgin who’s intimately familiar with what goes bump in the night. Must not be afraid of a little tail. Prefer a woman who’s open to exploring her animal nature. Interest in nighttime walks through the woods a plus.

My turn-ons include protecting you from the worst the supernatural world has to offer. Ready for an adventure? Give me a call.

Vampires and doppelgangers need not apply.

"I picked the laciest, sexiest bra and underwear and put them on under my jeans and sweater. Lingerie was ammunition in the war of the sexes, and I planned on loading my guns." 

This was a quick, fun read. Sometimes silly, often sexy, it's just what you'd expect from Jessica Sims (aka Jill Myles, author of the Succubus Diaries). 

The synopsis (which is hilarious) shows that this book is on the lighter side and suggests that it will be filled with sexual situations. So as long as you keep your expectations reasonable and have an idea of what you're getting into, then this will be a very hot and enjoyable read. 

I loved the idea of Midnight Liaisons, a supernatural dating service where Bathsheba and her sister Sara are both employed. The company carries a very strict no-dating policy between the supernaturals and the humans who work there. 

We're quickly introduced to Beau Russell, sexy clan leader and all-around alpha male. He forces Bathsheba to bend the rules by accompanying him on a date, a move that could potentially cause her to lose her job.. and virginity. 

Although the concept of Midnight Liaisons was fun and original, the remaining story line was a little bland and predictable. 

We paranormal romance junkies have read this a thousand times before - alpha male claims or marks protagonist, will do anything to have her, lots of growling (or purring) ensues, throw a couple of obstacles in the way, some steamy sex scenes and a fairly predictable ending. 

Even though this story line has a "been there, done that" feel to it, I would still recommend it to anyone looking for some good old fashioned supernatural smut. Because let's face it, we all want to read something naughty and less thought-provoking every now and then. 

And for anyone who hasn't read her other stories, I highly recommend Jill Myles' Succubus Diaries series which begins with "Gentlemen Prefer Succubi"

An excerpt for the second novel in the Midnight Liaisons series is included at the end of this book, but no word yet regarding the release date.
