Francesca Arno has been commissioned to create a grand centrepiece painting for the lobby of Ian Noble's new sky scraper. It's at a cocktail party in her honour that she first meets him- and the attraction is immediate and bewildering. Enigmatic, darkly intense, with a commanding presence, Ian completely unnerves her. And she likes it.If you are unaware of the Fifty Shades phenomenon then you must have been living in a hole for the past few months. I, like many others became addicted the the Fifty Shades trilogy so I was very interested to receive an email from Headline explaining that Christian Grey could move over because Ian Noble was in town!
I like Headline's approach to their latest acquisition, Because You Are Mine will be published in eight e-books over 8 weeks. This is a very clever idea, I have only read the first instalment but I already want more. Part One is entitled Because You Tempt Me and we are introduced to Francesca Arno and Ian Noble. Francesca has won the commission to paint the centrepiece in Noble's newest skyscraper. When they meet at a cocktail party there is instant attraction. Both battle against it but what will happen when Francesca spends time at Noble's penthouse home creating her painting?
There are of course going to be comparisons with Fifty Shades of Grey. The obvious ones being that Ian Noble is an extremely wealthy businessman and dominant. Francesca is pretty innocent but I already feel as though she has a little bit more about her than Anastasia Steele. I am a big fan of Fifty Shades of Grey but I do think that Beth Kery's writing style is better. I felt as though she avoided some of the cliches that she could have fallen into and was less repetitive.
I am very excited to read the next instalment which will be available from August 7th. The instalments of Because You Are Mine are only available in e-book format and are priced at £1.49 each, bargain!
