Ich wusste, dass es in diesem Buch um Gewalt geht ... aber leider hat mir dieses hier so gar nicht gefallen. Ich fand es brutal und zum Teil wirklich abstoßend. Die Handlung entwickelt keine wirkliche Spannung. Ich habe auch noch etwa zur Hälfte in Teil 2 reingelesen. Als ich dann aber feststellte, dass ich gelesen habe, obwohl es mich nicht mehr interessiert hat, wie es weitergeht, habe ich aufgehört, vor allem auch, als es so brutal weiterging. Wenn darüber gesprochen wird, wer von den beiden eine Person ermorden darf und dass Er gutheißt und sich darüber freut, dass Sie jemanden ermorden will, um ihm eine Freude zu bereiten, dann hat das bei mir nichts mehr mit einer guten Geschichte zu tun.

Mich hat auch gestört, dass es in Teil 1 einen Epilog gibt, Teil 2 aber die Zeit vor dem Epilog schildert - das brauche ich schon mal gar nicht, der Epilog hätte rausgenommen gehört, bevor man die Serie zusammenführt zu einem Box-Set.

Leider - obwohl ich schon öfter Dark Romance gelesen habe - das war mir dann zu dark und zu gewaltverherrlichend.

MY THOUGHTS

Dimitri has been living in Vancouver for 3 years now. He has never left his million dollar penthouse in all that time.

He's hiding. Not only from the russian mafia-boss Sergej who wants him dead. But also because he's scared to face people. He's been badly scarred when Sergej tried to kill him.

His best friend brings him blindfolded whores - to 'use' for his special sexual tastes. And even though he sometimes hurts them very badly they often leave halfway in love with this stranger who paid them so much money for a few hours of their time.

Columbia is a 19 year old girl with scars of her own. Both inside and outside. Her father molests her and her mother doesn't care all that much anymore.

The only 2 things that keep her alive are college and her little sister.
By trying to impress the guy she's had a crush on since high school - she joins his environmental group and she even volunteers to be smuggled into the apartment of reclusive texan billionaire Jarrod Jacob to confront him about his intentions of building ugly highrises in their neighboorhood.

Only Dimitri isn't a texan billionaire. He's a russian ex-criminal billionaire - and one of his legitimate business aliases is that of the texan guy.

Dimitri catches Columbia on his security cameras - a beautiful girl who's probably there to kill him - he grabs her, blindfolds her, and ties her up in his 'Interrogation-Room'.

Dimitri tries to find out if she's there to kill him - and he's not very gentle ... he knows how to find out the truth from people. He learned that in his time with the russian mob.

Columbia wants to escape but there's just no chance - so she has to wait for the right moment.

But does she really want to escape??? Here's this beautiful man who wants to control her - she would finally be able to let go and just BE for a while.....

That's how things get started.☺

I'm not telling you what will happen next -

and LOTS of things will happen - but you just have to read the book to find out ...
and please do!!!!! Because....

I REALLY LOVED THE BOOK - and I LOVED DIMITRI & COLUMBIA☺

You might think that Dimitri is this horrible, wild, violent, mean russian ganster ... and he is - or was. But from the first lines of the book we're in love with him - or at least I was.

He had a horrible childhood and then he was semi happy working as in the russian mob - making money - having sex whenever and with whomever he wanted. But then he was betrayed by the guy he thought of as a father-figure. And he's now hiding and waiting for his chance to kill his enemy.
And while he's hiding and waiting - he somehow forgot how to live. That is so sad to read!!! The poor rich guy all alone in his million dollar penthouse - but never going outside to walk along the streets of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

But then Columbia comes along and even though it's the opposite from what he expected - she drags him out of his gloom and shows him to live again!

The two of them are so perfect for each other - both so horrible scarred and abused.

They need each other to heal.

I literally fell in love with the book while I was reading the first two lines. - And the last line was just as amazing!!!! ☺ But please don't go and read the last lines first - I hate when people do that!!!!

THE BEAST was a wonderfully dark and erotic Love Story about 2 lost souls who are finally able to start to live again - even if it's in a, for us unimaginable, way. For them it's perfect.

GO AND BUY THE BOOK!!!
it might not be for everybody - it's violent and really dark and twisted - but those things really need to be in the book!!!! Just try it - but don't leave a horrible review because something in it is against your 'religion' ☺☺☺

A few tiny little things I didn't like - the whole sex-thing started a bit late for my tastes - it took a bit too long to lead up to them really being together.... hm well...it was totally ok the way it was, but...I just expected a bit more sex ☺☺☺

AND - the story is told from both Dimitri's and Columbia's POV - one chapter his POV - one chapter hers - and sometimes those chapters overlap ...they tell us about the same scene - not the complete scene again - but a few moments of it. That was a bit confusing for me - it took me a while to get used to it - hehehe I was probably just too stupid to get it - I guess it will be a bit more obvious for other people ☺

BUT - I still LOVED the book & especially DIMI ♥

Der Inhalt wird im Klappentext gut beschrieben und wer eine Dark Romance liest, weiss auch, dass Gewalt ein großes Thema ist.

Die Geschichte von Dimitri und Columbia ist aber auch eine Story von zwei Menschen, die sich gesucht und gefunden haben und gut füreinander sind, trotz oder gerade wegen ihrer jeweils von Gewalt geprägten Vergangenheit.

Ich weiß ehrlich gesagt nicht, wie jemand dieses Buch gut finden kann...
Da die Art der Geschichte ja mehr oder weniger subjektiv beurteilt wird, werde ich nicht weiter darauf eingehen, außer das gewisse Themen (Mord, Kindesmissbrauch, Vergewaltigung) in diesem Buch sehr leicht genommen wurden und es teilweise sogar begrüßt wurde. Ich werde die hier dargestellten Sexpraktiken nicht näher kommentieren, da es Geschmacksache ist, wie wer mit welchen Mitteln und Taten Befriedigung und Lust erreicht.
Doch davon abgesehen, ist der Schreibstil und der Plot ausnahmslos schrecklich; platt, vorhersehbar und "lustlos" sind nur einige Wörter, die mir dazu einfallen.

Wer ein Buch lesen mag, wo es um harten Sex mit gegenseitigen Schmerzen, Mord, Kindesmisshandlung geht sowie einen schlechtem Spannungsaufbau - bzw. keinem Spannungsaufbau - hat, greift zu und erfreut euch!
