Overview

FROM HOLLYWOOD ROYALTY...
At twenty-one years old, third-generation movie star Cal Hammond was on top of the world. He had more money than God and more women than any man could need. But when a night of debauchery ends in tragedy, he forfeits a life of luxury for a ten-year prison sentence at La Rosa, California’s most violent prison.

TO BRUTAL BEAST.
Eight years later, a ruthless, cunning man runs La Rosa from the inside. He is known simply as Beast. All the wardens fear him. All the gangs obey him. He speaks to no one but his inner council. What he says is law.

ONLY SHE CAN SAVE HIM.
Annabelle Mitchell’s stepfather is the warden at La Rosa. He deals as dirty as his trustees, and after years of smooth relations with Beast and the gangs he runs, Holt lands on the powerful prisoner’s hit list. That very afternoon, Annabelle pays a surprise visit to La Rosa, hoping to use her new counseling license at a place she thinks she could make a difference. When Beast sees her, he releases the warden and grabs the nameless girl who played a starring role in the worst night of his life. The price for the warden’s error is not death. It’s his precious Belle.

Beast Part 1: An Erotic Fairy Tale 4.4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 17 reviews.
Catbirdmom More than 1 year ago
52 pages with cover, etc. only 43 of actual story. This is not a "novella" as much as it is the first 6 chapters in a whole book. There are apparently 4 "novellas" in all the first is free, 2nd is .99 and the last two are 2.99 each. So say 7.00 for a book that, if all installments are equal length, is roughly 172 pages in length depending on your device. It is sort of believable in the beginning then asks you to suspend all disbelief toward the end. It is well written in that I did not see typos or usage errors. Sex is so-so but then there are only two scenes in this "novella". The description does not say it is an installment plan book so I thought it was a prequel to the rest. Silly me. I do not read "books" by authors that expect me to be strung along like a donkey after a 43 page carrot all the while spending 3 bucks a pop for the privilege. I will not be reading parts 2-4. I find I do not care enough about the characters to see if they ever get off the floor...

Beast, Part One by Ella James is a terrific way to begin this series of novella's.  It contains just enough mystery and story line to keep me reading into Part 2.  It begins light and fun, but ends on a darker, almost frightening note.  I cannot wait to see where James takes this one.

I was a bit apprehensive in reading yet another book about a billionaire that falls for the poor girl but the review and the cover persuaded me to read the book. I must say, I was pleasantly surprise with the story in general. It was original and not your typical love story. Some of the story was a bit far fetched on some areas that leave us wanting to know more details but overall, I liked the book.

There is a reason why Ella James will always be the Erotic Fairy Tale Queen. She writes awesome stories that stay with you even after you've finished reading one of her books. Beast, Part I is a captivating, intriguing, addictive, enthralling, wild and oh so hot story that will suck you in and keep you interested until the very end. This hot and sexy read will have you burning up your e-reader with how fast you turn the pages.

What an epic start to this serial!! Holy f**k me!  Ella James sure knows how to capture your attention. This was such a great dark erotic read. Beast! Yes, he is one sexy f*****g Beast!!! So many nail biting moments that had me gasping and literally saying out loud ‘What. The. F**k.!’ Beauty and the Beast, my a**…this is such a modern erotic re-tell that is soooo completely f*****g different that it will blow your mind. A short read that you will definitely not want to be interrupted and quickly start on the next one.  Highly recommended!

The Beast Part 1 is obviously the first book in this series.  There are going to be 4 parts and the first 3 are already out.  I am starting to see more books being released like this.  The format seems to be a bunch of short books, each one ending in a cliffhanger. The books (the ones I have seen like this anyway) tend to come out pretty quickly so there is not a long wait in between the stories. There was a lot of hype around this book and author.  As a blogger, I had to check it out and was NOT disappointed!  This first book had so much going on that I couldn’t believe it was only 65 pages long. I was instantly hooked into this story from page one.  Annabelle is a teen with a crush on a Hollywood hunk.  We have all had crushes like this, right?  For me, I couldn’t wait to find out if Annabelle was able to meet her crush and how he would be in person after crushing on him for so long. The story takes a shocking twist at the end where I found myself, re-reading parts to make sure I read it right the first time.  The book ended here and I couldn’t WAIT to start the second book.  I really like when a book ends in a cliffhanger but for this one, I was thankful that I already had my paws on Part 2 and could pick it up right away to find out what happens. This is an 18+ read due to the graphic sex scene.  I don’t usually read erotica (aside from 50 Shades but I couldn’t get away with not reading that series) but this was written really well and fit perfectly with the story. Go get this book (and every one after it!).  ¿

Great HOT read. Just as good as RED and Wolfe story. Can't wait to see what will happen next.

This was such an amazing read! We meet Belle and Cal. We get to watch them meet and it's steamy! It was her dream come true with anything but a fairy tale ending. Cal turned into The Beast and I can't wait to find out what happens to them next. This is a great erotic read for any fairy tale fan.
