This novella is the first in a series
My name is Monica. I’m a singer born and raised in Los Angeles.
I’ve stopped dating. When I cut a record, or win a Grammy, maybe then I’ll be with someone, but every man in my past has done everything he could to make me submit myself to him, and it’s gotten in the way of my career. I won’t do it again.
But there’s Jonathan. He owns the high-rise hotel where I work, and he is gorgeous and charming. I refuse to fall in love with him, even though when he asks me to submit to him, I want nothing more.

I received this novella after I requested it on Netgalley. It doesn’t influence my review.
I’m not a big fan of novellas and even less when it’s a serial, but Beg might be the exception. I truly enjoyed reading it and I’m quite eager to know more about Monica and Jonathan.
The chemistry between these two is obvious and is well described by the author to make us thrilled and eager to read more. Unfortunately, it’s so short – which is the norm with novellas – that it was over way too fast. I also hate to be left hanging that way when it’s obvious that this is a story that could be solved in a novel or at least in a two book series. That’s probably the only downside, but it’s my taste.
The characterization is great, very efficient. Jonathan is mysterious and hot and closed off enough to make us drool. I can’t be sure as this novella is very short, but he could be one hell of male character that could be representative of this genre. Monica is quite a complicated character and it’s What I love the most in books. I’m not sure yet if I understand her fuly, but I do enjoy reading her story.
The secondary characters are also very interesting and I hope that they won’t be kept in the background and that they will play an important part. All of these characters help to create a believable atmosphere which is very important to be caught into such a story.
The writing style is also flawless even if some of the dialogues aren’t flowing that well.
All in all, this story is a good surprise and I’m sure to read the other novellas even if I don’t like the serial aspect that is a new trend.
What do you think about Jonathan? Hot Stuff or not? What do you think about novellas set into a serial?
Who read Beg already? What do you think about it.
