Beautiful Beast is a light tale of lust and love, about a beautiful dancer who keeps a wild beast locked inside him, and the man who sets it free.
Kevin used to hold himself back, trying to keep his less conventional desires to himself. With Joakim, he feels free. It’s almost as if Joakim can read Kevin’s subconscious, touching the right places at exactly the right time, and whispering the most shameless things…filthy, and oh so satisfying.
Falling for Kevin is easy. Joakim can feel it happening and he’s powerless to do anything about it. With every touch, his desire grows. Men have chased him for his money and status before, but Kevin doesn’t seem to care about any of that. Maybe this time, Joakim should let himself fall, and hope the landing will be soft.
Whether by fate or chance, the two find each other again on an app, and Kevin begins to fall for the thoughtful, honest man who makes him feel alive. As for Joakim, he's more than halfway there the moment he sets eyes on Kevin.
Since this is one of Those Other Books, it is deliciously wanton, sexual, and kinky. Joakim is growly and possessive, and Kevin is no shy virgin either. The men talk, fuck, and cuddle, not necessarily in that order.
Kevin has no idea Joakim is a very wealthy, rather famous financier. Joakim withholds the information because he likes that Kevin isn't dating him just for his money.
There is no big misunderstanding in this book, no drama, no miscommunication, just a sensual relationship between two men who need each other.
Roe Horvat's writing is gorgeous; there's no other word for it. The phrases he uses, the way the characters and setting are described ... sex is at once a communion and a blessing.
If you're in the mood for not only dirty talk and kinky play with light D/s overtones but also a sweet age-gap romance, read Beautiful Beast.
