Beneath These Chains is the third book in the Beneath Series, but can be enjoyed as a full-length, standalone romance.
I was raised on the streets, so I know things are rarely as simple as they appear—especially this rich girl showing up at my pawnshop demanding a job. She’s the most tempting thing I’ve ever seen, and I’ll be damned if I can make her leave.
Shit just got complicated … but when it comes to her, I want complicated. We’re both fighting our own demons, and our only chance at a future is to let go of the past.
But will we be strong enough to break free from beneath these chains?
Beneath The Chains is the third book in March’s Beneath series and this is where we get Lord’s story. We were able to see him briefly in the previous book which featured his brother’s story. But in this book we get Lord and boy he was yummy in all the delicious ways that March delivers in her stories. And it starts out with such strength and zest.
Right now, this moment, I had no cares. I was living in the now and enjoying it—because of him.
Beneath The Chains begins with our heroine Elle, who may seem on the surface as if she has plenty of wealth and prestige but beneath it she has scars that dig deep, scars she doesn’t let anyone see. She is on the hunt for something precious that belonged to her father that was lost. And she knows if it will turn up it will be at the pawn shop that Lord owns and runs. When she walks in, Lord is tossing out his employee who has been stealing from him. So she demands a job and Lord quite puzzled at her determination, reluctantly lets her have the job even though he has doubts because he knows that she will be one hell of a distraction for him. But soon their relationship that begins with heat and sizzling sex turns into something deeper and with a killer on the loose and it all surrounding them ….the villain is closer to them than they think
Sometimes you had to let yourself break before you could start picking up the pieces.
Beneath The Chains is just a fantastic read and even though it does start out slow (as I have noticed with this series of March’s) it definitely picks up especially once you become more invested in the characters and see the hidden depths behind them. And quite frankly I adored both of these characters. They were so delicious together and I really enjoyed seeing them delve into each other and discover the secrets and hidden pleasures in their relationship. And I love these men that March writes, because once they find their woman, they stand by her no matter what and I adored that in Lord especially after we see what Elle has been dealing with and love his unwavering support of her.
Wouldn’t have mattered what I was doing. You need me, I’ll be there
Overall I found Beneath These Chains to be a sensual filled world with chills and gems of hidden delights that March delivers!!
