Publisher's Summary

Daisy 

When my family gets deep into debt with the Russians, I sell the only thing I can to save them: My virginity. He may be able to take my body, but he will never have my heart. It’s only a week. One week in the bed of the city’s most notorious criminal. I can handle it. I have to. But I don’t count on his scorching sensuality, his surprising sweetness. His fierce protectiveness. I know he’s the last man in the world I should fall for, but his touch ignites something deep inside me. His dark, tormented soul calls to mine, draws me in, forces me to feel things I’ve never allowed myself to feel before.... 

Dmitry

Working as a hit man for the Russian Mafia, my life is nothing but an endless abyss of violence and solitude. My only goal is to keep my head down and do my job until I’ve repaid my debt and can get the hell out. I’m so close. Soon, I will be able to put this life of blood and death behind me. Until I see her. Daisy. Sweet. Innocent. With a core of hardened steel. Everything I’ve ever wanted, and everything I know I can never deserve. In a world full of darkness and cruelty, Daisy is like a ray of sunlight shining down into the pits of my personal hell. She is the light to my darkness, the innocence to my depravity. I will move heaven and earth to make her mine. And God help anyone who gets in my way. 

A full-length 67,000 word stand-alone, sizzling hot romance set in a dark landscape with no cheating, no cliffhanger, and a guaranteed HEA! This book involves explicit scenes, dark themes, and may contain triggers, but amid the violence and danger, two souls learn the true meaning of love and sacrifice.

It's a bit silly...

She's going to pay off a $20K debt with her virginity... while her brother is wracking up a debt of $50K to run away... OMG??? Really? Hey, I can run away with $100!

Too many parts of this book didn't make logical sense to me... I just went with the flow... to a HEA.

Enjoy!

Holy Hot Beast...

I'm so glad I took the risk on this Author's debut romance novel. 100% worth the Credit. My only criticism is it was a little predictable but that did not take away from the anticipation of what will happen next.
The book opens with Man being interrogated by Dmitry an enforcer for the Russian Mob. After the interrogation was unsuccessful Dmitry finds himself at the end of a dark road hiding in the shadows watching Daisy a women he has become infatuated with.
Daisy a young women from a broken home works herself to the bone to keep a roof over her mother and older brother's head. Her Mother's Boyfriend finds himself in debt with the mob. To save her family's life she puts herself up for auction to pay his debt.
Dmitry wins, He has 1 week to convince her to stay with him permanently But that will prove harder then expected. Both Daisy and Dmitry's Broken Past and the things they have witnessed leaves them both with self doubt and gaurded. it will be their biggest obstacle to over come.
added bonus there is no angst in this book and the sex scenes are scorching hot.

I love this book from the very beginning to the very end. I can't wait to read more from Lexi Heart. I really really really hope she makes this a series. Please tell me Joseph will get his own book.... Maybe Jeremy too!

Loved it! Great Story! Great Narration!

I loved this story! Lexy Heart did an amazing job matching up Daisy with Dmitry. Beauty and the Beast!
Nikki Monroe as Daisy, sounds innocent, sexy and strong all at the same time,
Gregory Russell sounds bad boy, romantic and strong all at the same time.
Great story!
Great narration!
I just saw a ridiculous review, probably from Gregory Russell's ex-girlfriend or something like that. First there was a complaint about the Russian accent, which was spot on to a true Russian American accent influenced by other Americans. Then some nonsense about it being to loud at times when he was yelling. Really? What kind of lame equipment was she using? It sounded fine to me and the 100+ others who reviewed.

Give the Beast his Daisy and watch him melt!!!🥰🌼

Please please let there be more in this series!!. I don't usually read or listen to stories in this genre Some dark romances of to messed up for my taste 😣😖 BUT I gotta say this was good!!!! Yeah some parts were skeptical and there was a darkside yet it was nothing to crazy.

Daisy's character was related she hard and she did what gotta to help/save her family I really appreciated the fact that the offer did not make a character a simpleton or naive, arrogant. She faced everything had on and did not hesitate to stand up for herself.

Bought by the Beat (A Dark Romance) - Loved it!

Daisy is a sweet innocent young woman who sells her virginity to get out of her family's debt. , Daisy's family is screwed up and runs up a debt to the Russian mob. Dmitry is a ruthless Russian mobster hit man who loves Daisy. It is an adult, dark, and sexy Beauty and the Beast story. I loved listening to this. The narrators were perfect as Daisy and Dmitry.

Bought by the Beast - Daisy and Dimitri

This book was so good. Dimitri was in deep with the Russian mafia, specifically Ivan, who took care of him and paid his hospital bill when his family was killed and he was mutilated. He paid his debt to the mafia so that he could get out. He was sick of the killing. When he sees Daisy, all that changes. He makes a deal to stay in the mafia for another six months if he can win the bid for Daisy. Daisy was a young woman unfortunate enough to be in a horrible family. Her mother and her mother’s boyfriend were something else. Even her brother was annoying. I don’t want to say what it is but this book has a twist that started the whole mess of Daisy being sold to Dimitri. Dimitri was a sweetheart who loved Daisy. I am so glad Daisy could see past his scars. Gregory Russell and Nikki Monroe did a great job with the narration. I received this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
