Book 3 brings the series to an end, but leaves readers wondering about a warning Rose gives Bini. With just 181 pages, the book makes a good filler novel- for those just wanting to pass some time. There are moments when the author drags out Bini's chores and it's redundant.

I found Haag's retelling of Beauty and the Beast well done. We get to follow Benella as she grows out of being an innocent and her being forced to go toe to toe with some of the harsher sides of the world. She is beaten, bruised and a lot worse, but by the end she is much stronger. I will admit to a number a biases one being that Mrs. Haag is one of my favorite authors and two that B&B is my favorite fairy tale. That aside, I like how these stories took on a number of dark themes, very much like the old tale, and not adhering to the "Disneyfied" version of this old French story. Benella's tale made me lose a number of hours of sleep, but the visuals, language and over world that Haag creates makes it well worth the dark circles under my eyes. Take the time, read the story and just enjoy a more adult fairy tale than what you're used to having.

MJ Haag has written an awesome adult version -Beauty & the Beast inspired story (that's one of my favorite Disney movies when my daughter was a child). I really enjoyed this 3 book series. Would highly reccomend this series. I've re-read them 3 times. Some of my favorite books, & I don't normally re-read books! Looking forward to more books from MJ Haag!

First off, let me say how furious I am that this is a three part series with each novel ending in a cliff hanger. Each novel has enough meat to it to count as individual novel, but they all end in maddening cliffhangers. I loathe cliff hangers more than I loathe serials. That being said, this series had me from page one and I couldn’t put it down until the very last one. I missed a lot of sleep for it… I am a huge fan of fairy tale retellings, especially if there erotica involved. This is definitely one of the better retellings of Beauty and the Beast, albeit a very dark one. The female lead is almost raped more times than I can count, abused by her obnoxious sisters, manipulated by an arrogant sorceress, and subjected to dealing with a short tempered man child stuck in a beast’s body. Through it all, Benella stays determined and loved her grit. There are some themes that may not sit well with some people, especially with the Beast’s treatment of Benella in the second novel. I think they are missing the point of this story, however. The premise is not just about looking beyond aesthetic value, it is about personal growth. While it is the Beauty’s purpose to look beyond outer appearances to appreciate what people have on the inside; it is the Beast’s role to develop from …well a beast to a better person. I feel that most people look past that. This is a great series for those looking for an adult retelling of Beauty and the Beast and can handle the dark themes and cliff hangers that come with it. If you can accept an anti-hero with faults who falls for a strong woman who can hold her own in a hateful sexist world, then this is definitely the series for you.

This trilogy is such a great adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. I'm so glad I decided to read all three books. This one definitely was a bit repetitive with her daily chores, but it was a quick read which helped with the time line of the story in a way. Benella's a smart girl so her repeat dangerous actions in this book really started to get on my nerves. I will definitely check out other books from this author!

Loved the fairy tale and the lessons learned by the characters. I had to read all three Consecutively to get through to the ending.

This was such a great adaption by the author. Wished it would never end. Loved where she took us on this journey with "Belle" and Alec. I felt like I got to know and fall in love with the "Beast" like never before. Def worth the purchase of all three books.

As I was reading, I realized what she was planning with this book and thought two books was plenty. But, the more I read, the more I read, the more I read, the more I was glad she went with three. She could have easily given us a novella, but she gave us a whole book, giving us a chance to Alec as a human and how his love for Benella did not change when he did, and how he tried that much harder to win her. It had two beautiful endings and they were extremely satisfying. Do not miss a chance to enjoy all 3 of these books.

I absolutely loved this series. I was drawn to it because of it being based on A Beauty and the Beast but it goes beyond that. Once I started reading I couldn't stop. I highly recommend it!

I love a good beauty and the beast romance. This three part story was a must read for any fan of a historical b & b romance! It's unusual for me to purchase a series, but after I read the first book (which was free), I was hooked & couldn't put this series down!!!! I had to have the next two books! Lovable hero and heroine! Very steamy. Not recommended for 18 and under!
