New To Me Tuesday! Imperfect Monster By Jennifer Bene

Cold, ruthless, vicious.

I’m Paulo García’s monster, and I’d swallowed that bitter pill whole, learned to deal with it… until she stormed into the house like some avenging Valkyrie.

Brave, stupid, beautiful.

Nicky just wants to save her brother. She showed up with an envelope full of cash and a smart mouth and found herself in a den of monsters. I wish I could say I was the best of them, I wish I could say I wanted to protect her — but I’m far from perfect and she’s so damn sweet.

And all I want is a taste before this world destroys her.

I have never read Jennifer Bene and the description for Imperfect Monster had me wanting to check this one out.  I have been on a dark romance kick as of late and I figured that this one would add to my need for darker reads and it did.  I really liked this one, there was the darkness I was craving, there was some suspense, some secrets, some action and some erotic moments.  This is a dark read so there are some situations that could be triggers for some so please keep that in mind when reading this book.

It takes, well let’s just say it takes some big balls to storm into a drug lord’s house the way that Nicky does.  Stupid isn’t strong enough of a word to be honest.  I admire that she wanted to take care of her brother but come on girl with that amount owed you should know it’s something serious.  She was sassy at times, which I always love in a character, but I wish she had more depth to her.  She infatuated Andre and it is lucky she did because he saves her.  IS he a saint?  No he will call himself an imperfect monster and he is, he hurts her but at the same time is protecting her.  I like Andre’s character, I know he was doing what he had to do at the time but it also doesn’t excuse what he does to Nicky. 

Overall I enjoyed Imperfect Monster, I do think it could have used some more depth storyline wise, but beyond that it was another dark romance that this book whore enjoyed very much.  It provided the escape I was looking for and I think lovers of dark romance will enjoy this one but please make sure you take the warning I mentioned because I wouldn’t want someone to trigger.
