Publisher's Summary

I am many things. billionaire, rogue, rebel. But I never figured myself for a thief.

My money can buy power, control, access. Even oaths of loyalty.

The one thing it can't buy is her...or her safety.

I vowed to protect her...I failed...

I can't, under any circumstances, fail again. In order to save her, I'll have to give up the one thing that I value most - control.

The Canary Jewel is the key. 

Tonight I am no longer a billionaire. Tonight I keep new secrets.

My name is Ben Covington and tonight, I am a thief.

Note: this isn't the end of the story. It takes time to become a master thief. Join me and the London Lords in the epic conclusion. Revenge comes in the form of a single jewel. And you'll find out who's still standing in For Her Benefit.

Amazing installment! Can't wait for the conclusion

I was going to wait until the third book in this trilogy was released to start reading, but I just kept hearing how good it was that I couldn't wait. The suspense, action and characters in this series are phenomenal. After meeting Ben and Olivia in Big Ben, I just had to see what the second book had in store for them. And I was not disappointed! Adventure, passion, intrigue - this book has it all. The development of their relationship, Ben coming clean to Olivia about the trouble that they're in, it was so well-presented and developed. I can't wait for the rest of their story! The audiobook for this was FANTASTIC! Both Shane East and Mari injected to much emotion and drama in their narration, and it really enhanced the story. I can't wait for the rest of the conclusion!

In Her Majesty’s London Town

(Book two in the See No Evil Trilogy) Well I listened to Big Ben (book 1) in one sitting. I repeated this feat with The Benefactor, the continuing drama between Ben and Olivia. The adventure evolves as threats to Olivia’s safety become prevalent. More secrets are revealed and leads you to wonder who can be trusted? There is the seediness of the underground corrupt power players balanced with the sexiness that surrounds the main characters. The suspense is captivating and when I got to the end I felt bereft because I didn’t want it to be over....and its not...book 3 is on the horizon.... The narrators Mari and Shane East effortlessly portray the characters and with every sigh, gasp, growl or laughter they had me with my headphones on glued to my ears. I cannot wait for book 3 (with even more sex please and thank you!)

The Benefactor is a revelation.

Ben and Livy are back and unpredictable as ever. Nothing says page-turner like power, greed and danger. Malone never backs down from a challenge, so why should her characters be any different. Big Ben was only the beginning. The Benefactor is a revelation. From out of the shadows comes perhaps the biggest twist of all. The healing power of love.

Wow! Love it!

I'm now a fan of Nana Malone's books. I know it's only book two but she had me at book one. 😍 Her narrators are complete perfection. Bringing Shane East and Mari together is absolute 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥! Let's just say you will definitely need cold showers because you can feel the chemistry, steamy passion, and the banter these narrators bring to life in these mc's. Nana, your writing is amazing, Whoa!!! Along with the steam and passion, there's mystery, suspense, secret society stuff that will keep you at the edge of your seat. The supporting characters are amazing and Nana's writing is superb and she knows the intertwines of British society. My only frustration was with Livee/Olivia. Her stubbornness was exhausting in refusing to believe how Ben really cared. Thank Gawd for her bestie, Tilly ( absolutely wonderful bestie) and Ben's patience. Hell, I almost gave up on her. But Livee is brilliant, beautiful, bold, tough, and a ride or die chick with Ben who's also incredible as well. He knew she owned him. It's a cliffhanger, but I'm jumping into book three right now. I'm want more. I'm hooked!

My Thoughts on The Benefactor

The Benefactor picked up where Big Ben left off. It jumped right back into the excitement. And then it just didn't let up. It was such an intense, suspenseful ride. I didn't know who to trust although I knew who I wanted to. I also knew that I loved Ben and Livy. Their passion and connection was one of the things I loved most about the story. Reading as these two damaged people navigated their relationship while dealing with the secrecy and danger that surrounded them. It was thrilling and just kept me zoned into every word of this story. Now that I've finished this one I still have one more story to wait for in Ben and Livy's trilogy and I wish it was here already. Shane East and Mari absolutely rocked this performance. I loved all the emotion and just the overall energy.

Cannot stand Olivia

This has got to be the most obnoxious and completely clueless person. Ben is an absolute angel to tolerate this woman. I guess the heart wants what it wants. The narrators are excellent; love the accents by Shane. Love the storyline and this is why it deserved 5 stars; just hate Olivia with her hypocrisy and absolute stupidity.

Dramatic Cliffhangers!

Nana Malone has my heart palpitating with the dramatic cliffhanger of this book!! I like how the story picks up right where the other one left off without rehashing what we already know! Wow! Ben and Olivia can’t seem to catch a break with all of the covert actions people are taking against them. Olivia seems to be one hot commodity!! Thank goodness Ben has more going for him than looks and money!! I love that Olivia is more than just another pretty face! Olivia is actually pretty blessed to have been drawn into Ben’s inner circle of trusted friends! Both Shane East and Mari continues to deliver a stellar performances with their narration! I can’t wait for the resolution of this story!! into Ben’s inner circle of trusted friends! Both Shane East and Mari continues to deliver stellar performances with their narration! I can’t wait for the resolution of this story!!

I can’t recommend it enough

The mysteries keep coming! Nothing yet is resolved–since it’s a trilogy–but we get hints of the solution, though it’s still incomplete. There’s so much going on. There’s a lot of subplots, so that can be confusing sometimes, and you can feel that some of them stall while another moves forward. At least, you’re never bored. Neither are Olivia and Ben. That’s another thing that didn’t seem to move fast enough. After an extra-instalove in the first book, here Ben and Olivia circle around each other, not admitting their feelings. It’s an usual resort in romance, but it’s the second book! Come on, guys! At least, that doesn’t keep them from doing the deed. And oh do they do. It’s intense, it’s filthy, and it’s a complete loss of control. I love that kind of passion in my books. Olivia’s ghanaian culture is more prominent this time, and it’s quite interesting. Food, art, language, traditions, you get a bit of everything. It was a good idea to make Ben really fascinated by that aspect of his girlfriend. On the opposite, we have some villain showing racism. The multicultural element of the romance is undeniable this time. The narration is still excellent. That makes for a must have audiobook. It’s an enhanced experience compared with the ebook. I can’t recommend it enough.

Great Second Installment

The second installment of the trilogy. Things just got more exciting. Ben and Olivia trying to navigate a relationship where neither person is willing to actual be truthful about their feelings. At the same time that so many mysteries and betrayals seem to be building around them. Nana Malone does a great job in building anticipation and I cannot wait for the final book. Despite the fact that I'm still waiting on part 3, I am confident enough in what i've heard so far to say that this is by far my favorite series so far this year and and for sure near the top of the list for the last several years.

it's ok

book one was funny and sexy and exciting and so much more but book two was a little boaring to be honest I just think is a little slow and drawn out
