Truth was I wanted her to know that she was mine, that I would destroy anything or anyone who tried to tell me differently. Being locked away these last ten years, even though it was my own doing, had made me hardened. It had changed me, made me the beast everyone already thought I was.
Instinct controlled me and I found myself moving closer to her. She moved a step back, maybe slightly afraid, maybe because she didn’t know what I had planned. But this primal need was dictating what I did, propelling me forward until I wasn’t myself. And then I was right in front of her. I pulled her close to me and she gasped. I loved that sound, and wanted to hear her make it again when I was balls deep in her.
Emotions slammed into me, and I knew this wasn’t about me wanting to control her, to own her. I wanted her as mine, no doubt about it, but I wanted her to know that I was hers too. This was fast, fucking crazy in all senses of the word. But it was real, and I hadn’t felt anything like this before.
I should have been gentle, taken my time, made this a slow burn, but I couldn’t. I was too selfish for her, too primed for a taste of Britta.
And I’d have her, every fucking part of her.
This was a new rendition of the Beauty and the Beast story but this one had so much more and no singing. The moment Rofus saw Britta, he knew that he wanted her and despite everyone he would break out of his self induced exile and claim her. Britta was excited for her new job as housekeeper and was determined to do her best. She was intrigued by the beast but wasn’t looking for love. Little did she know how much that would change. This was a short but fun read that I enjoyed very much. The characters were well developed and I could almost picture the whole thing. The romance was sweet and unexpectedly sexy.
