Accidental Gold digger.
Circumstance forced Eden Mercer to sell herself to Dominic Armstrong for half a million dollars and in return she is to play the dutiful wife in public and submit to him completely behind closed doors.
The Tyrant.
Dominic is Ruthless, manipulative and sadistic but Eden is determined not to break under his cruelty. But how does one persevere when in the clutches of a Monster?

“Soon, sweetie, I promise,” he soothed. She moaned softly as he licked her ear, dropped soft warm kisses across her shoulder blades, he moved down her back, a wet tongue and hot mouth traced and kissed each vertebrae, making a slow and steady progress down her spine. It was a torturous progression that boiled the blood in Eden’s veins as she waited in bated anticipation. Breath stilled in her lungs, eyes widening when he drew apart her butt cheeks and ran his tongue down the wet crevice, from clit to the puckered rosebud of her hole and back again. It was undoubtedly one of the most erotic things he’d ever done to her body, and Eden didn’t know how to breathe properly. She gripped the sheets beneath her hands and bit down hard on her bottom lip to keep from screaming.
It was like a shot of adrenaline straight into her vein. It was blood vessels dilating, her heart galloping uncontrollably in her chest, it was gasping for breath when the air she drew in wasn’t enough. He owned her body, ate it like sun ripened peaches and drank the flowing juices of her weeping womanhood with his rapacious tongue. There were fingers there, slipping between the folds to dive deep into her blistering heat, while his thumb worked at her puckered hole, his wicked, wicked mouth showing Eden exactly how very little she knew her of own body. There was nothing but the explicitness of this act, the hyper awareness that made her feel like each inch of her body was struck by lightning, that killed her and gave her life all in one electrifying jolt. He was merciless and perfect, inviting her to shove her hips back and ride his face.
Death was imminent, sweet cataclysmic death seduced her into the gaping, welcoming arms of her orgasm. She plummeted, shattered into delicious little pieces on his tongue and fingers. Recuperating wasn’t in the stars for her as he gripped her hips and plunged into her depths in one long stroke. Pulling her arms and folding them at the small of her back, he held them there with one large hand as he sank in deeper, so deep that it hurt so good. Ass high in the air, face down in the sheets, Eden was at his complete mercy, filled to absolute capacity with his cock, and she whimpered, the vulnerability of her position giving her a sweet high.
“I’m going to beat this pussy, Eden, and you’re going to scream my name.”
And she did, a promise made completely true as he fucked her like a porn star. She screamed like the world was falling, his repeated strike against her G-spot making her see stars. It was too damn much, his jarring thrusts so deep that she could taste him, spurred her fall and she orgasmed on every inch of his cock.

"Be very careful, pet, not to underestimate the extent of my generosity." He bent down so that he was inches away from her face, his cold green eyes piercing her. "Now, go clean my come off your face and wait for me like a good little wife, hmm?"

So I pretty much loved this book, actually I thought it was amazing. Let me explain, one ingredient that I always look for in a book I read, is an alpha male. That's the main one, but if it isn't written well then you've lost me. I'm a reader who thrives on lyrical prose, so I don't enjoy reading books written in spoken word. Phal's prose flowed well and kept me interested from start to finish. Monster is written in dual POV, with POV's from supporting characters to give the story more dimension.

Dominic Armstrong, is a man with a chip on his shoulder, and when he sets his eyes on Eden Mecer, he's hellbent on having her and doesn't let up until he's married her.

After the death of her mother, Eden realises how dire her financial situation is. So she marries Dominic, hoping for a life made easier by money, and perhaps they could even learn to love each other. Hence, accidental gold digger.

Let's move along swiftly shall we. After 4 years of living with an emotionally abusive Dominic, Eden finally decides to leave, while harboring a secret.

Here's where the story gets really good, how does an anti-hero who was quite frankly a glorified asshole redeem himself? Well, Dominic does, and I ended up really loving his character (well, I loved him when he was an asshole too, but that's neither here nor there). The story moved at a realistic pace, and I did not trouble connecting with this book or it's characters. Which is a great feat since I get annoyed easily and am not afraid to DNF a book if I'm not enjoying it.
