Beth is known for her emotional intensity and her ability to create steamy sexual tension in both her contemporary romance and erotic contemporary romance novels.
Beth Kery’s 2012 book, Because You Must Learn, is a steamy romance novel that explores the tumultuous relationship between two individuals who are thrust together by a series of unfortunate circumstances. Kery is an accomplished author who has penned several books in the romance genre, and her ability to create realistic, complex characters and delve into the complexities of relationships is on full display in this novel.
Set in modern-day Chicago, the book follows the lives of two distinctively different characters, Ian Noble and Francesca Arno. Ian had grown up in an abusive household but had eventually become a successful business magnate, while Francesca is a professor at a prestigious university.
The two meet under unusual circumstances when Ian’s company acquires the university where Francesca works, and she is tasked with helping the company navigate the transition. Despite their vastly different backgrounds and lifestyles, Ian and Francesca share an intense chemistry that neither can ignore.
As they grow closer and become more involved, they are forced to confront their pasts and deal with their deepest fears and insecurities. One of the strengths of Because You Must Learn is Kery’s ability to create characters that are complex, multidimensional, and flawed.
Ian and Francesca are not perfect, and they both have moments where their actions and decisions are questionable. However, Kery does an excellent job of portraying these flaws in a way that makes them relatable and understandable.
This level of depth and nuance is often lacking in romance novels, but Kery’s skill as a writer is evident in her ability to create characters that feel real. Moreover, Kery’s writing style is captivating and immersive, creating an intense and sensual atmosphere that draws readers in and keeps them engaged.
Her descriptions of Chicago and its various locales are detailed and vivid, making the city a character in its own right. The plot moves along at a brisk pace, and the various twists and turns keep the reader hooked until the very end.
That said, the book is not without its flaws. Some readers may find the plot to be predictable, and the relationship between Ian and Francesca can be overly dramatic at times.
Additionally, the novel does rely heavily on cliches of the romance genre, such as the billionaire businessman and the less wealthy woman, which may feel tired to some readers. Despite these limitations, Because You Must Learn is an enjoyable and well-written romance novel that will appeal to fans of the genre.
Kery’s ability to create realistic, complex characters and her skillful, sensual writing make this book a standout in its category. Readers who enjoy steamy romances with well-drawn characters and engaging plots will find much to enjoy in this book.
In conclusion, I would highly recommend Because You Must Learn to fans of romance fiction who are looking for a well-written, immersive story that captures the complexities of relationships. While not perfect, the book is a triumph of characterization and writing style, and it will undoubtedly appeal to a wide range of readers.
I would rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
