~Reviewed by SUZANNE & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog I love a good Beauty and the Beast retelling, so chucking in a six and half foot tall marine and a plus sized heroine and I am in book heaven with no intention of leaving.~ Under the Covers Christopher aka “Beast” has a badly mangled face, all people ever see when they look at his scarred face and massive body is a monster, never really knowing the man he is underneath. Ashleigh has had her heartbroken once again, men thinking they can walk all over her just because she is plus sized. When the two meet can they both get past their own prejudices and insecurities and create their own Beauty & the Beast fairy tale? I may have found a new author to stalk, Pepper Pace has completely blown me away with this book! I love a good Beauty and the Beast retelling, so chucking in a six and half foot tall marine and a plus sized heroine and I am in book heaven with no intention of leaving. As soon as I started reading about Beast, I knew I would love him he was a gentle giant and extremely lonely as no one, especially women, saw past his disfigured face. When I say disfigured I mean Phantom of the Opera style scarred and not just a little scar that goes across his check and make him look both sexy and dangerous. I liked that Ms Pace was brave enough to go all out and make a genuinely scary and ugly looking hero and although I like to say and think I would never judge someone by looking at their face, I am honest enough to say that I very well might have done, and if I had I would have lost out on one amazing guy, he is definitely having a starring role in my book boyfriend harem. With Ashleigh, it took me a while to warm up to her and it seemed liked it was deliberate, she was a bit shallow and despite knowing people judged her by her appearance she did exactly the same to everyone else. But as the book progressed and you got to know Ashleigh and you see her and Christopher’s relationship bloom I found myself starting to really like and respect her. This was a fabulous romance, it was sweet but intense; the chemistry between Chris and Ashleigh built gradually and then exploded off the page. Beast was solely focused on the two main characters it had no minor intrigue or suspense plot going on in the background; there were no crazy exes or long forgotten enemies, I liked that it unashamedly followed the romance without adding unnecessary plot elements in. This was a fantastic read, already I can feel the urge to reread it, it had unforgettable main characters, a passionate romance and although the writing may not be very polished it made up for it with lots of heart. I highly recommend this!

This was truly a wonderful story. It had real people with real problems. A woman who was ugly on the inside as well as not accepted by society with her physical appearance on the outside. She had a pretty face if she could just lose weight. Then you had someone who was a beautiful soul, but was repulsive to look at. Their friendship that was transformed into something more. Both people lacking something finding contentment in the other. It was a great love story. My first full length Pepper Pace book, and I already can't wait to read more. It's worth spending the money to check out another book. :)

An unlikely romance story that touches on issues of race, color, class, and body image but is still funny and romantic. A great read!

I read this novel when it was posted on Literotica a few years ago.  I just spent the past four days (yes - 4 days) searching for it because I wanted to read it again.  For four days I searched for it using google.  I went back to all of the sites where I've read interracial stories and I couldn't find it.  I persisted b/c it's very easy to find stories that I've read on the internet.  Then out of the blue I discover that it has been removed from free sites and is for sale.  It took me exactly 5 seconds to make my e-purchase.  It made my day.Beautiful and realistic characterization.  She's a genius w/dialogue and emotional reactions.  I even read her "Wheels of Steel" on Literotica, which is not a place one really goes to read about a romace who's star is a young white man confined to a wheelchair.  Do you know that that was one of the most beautifully written stories that I've ever read. Her facility w/all aspects of good writing brings to mind Linda Howard. FIVE STARS

A plus sized Beauty, and a shy very masculine Beast. Christopher is a 6'7 battle honed Marine working at a Federal building for DHS when they are not on a mission. Ashlieghs boyfriend of three years just married another woman leaving her feeling betrayed and not good enough, so she joins they gym at the Federal building she works. This story is well written and is a joy to read, the cast of well meaning character will have you between laughter and shaking your head. This is a great read and so relateable in terms of how we all feel about ourselves and how others see us. I love a Twisted Fairytale.

I love Mrs Pace's books and they all seem to be generally the same, but that is what makes them so wonderful. In this story, the main characters are finding out how to love someone from the inside rather than the outside. I know sometimes it may seem unrealistic, but why can't it happen. If we just believe then who is to stop us from allowing our dreams to come true. In this story, however, there are some twist and turns and you will find yourself rooting for them to become a couple.

I loved this wonderful story. The characters were so rich and well developed. A perfect take on the classic, "Beauty and the Beast". Love really is blind. Beast and Ash had a true love, not diminished by his physical deformity. Christopher was such a good man with a big heart. Again, great story by one of the best IR writers in the field.

Beast is a great story. The story gives you food for thought as to how i may or may not judge others. The story was heartwarming, thought provoking, loving, romantic and sexy. No over the top drama. Very much liked the interaction among the characters. I love this author. I will read more of her books.
