Overview

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shoshanna Evers comes a sexy, romantic re-imagining of the classic fairytale, Beauty and the Beast. (NC-17 rated)

With her father’s freedom at stake, Belle agrees to be the fearsome Beast’s prisoner in his enchanted castle. Held as his willing captive, Belle must submit to the Beast’s most primal desires to survive.

The Beast can’t let his little Beauty go free, not while there’s still hope that she might be the one to end his decade-long curse…and with true love’s kiss, return him to the Prince he once was.

Their story is one that begins with imprisonment—he in his monstrous body, she in a dungeon—but without this predicament, Beauty would never have met the Beast.

So we shall begin with what occurred on that fateful night when everything changed: when a lover was betrayed, a man deformed, and a castle shrouded in an enchantment…

Shoshanna Evers has become a master at re-imagining classic fairytales into steamy and evocative reads that give readers more than just sweet dreams. This latest release is no exception and puts a memorable modern-day spin on the classic Beauty and the Beast theme that we all know and love by amping up the sexuality. The basic premise of this story remains the same but it's the characters that make this story unique. This time around Belle goes on a journey not only to learn to love the man behind the beast but also to learn about herself and embrace her sexuality. She becomes a woman under the Beast's seductive tutelage. From the start she's immensely likable, open minded, vibrant, and strong-willed in her convictions. She's leery of what the Beast offers her but she never backs down, which made her emotional evolution feel very contemporary. The Beast has been stuck in his monstrous form for ten years when Belle's father enters his home and he's given the opportunity to lift his curse through Belle falling in love with him. The curse has wiped his existence from people's mind which has made him feel very isolated and even more beast-like. Having Belle in his home has him re-embracing his human side and becoming a more gentle man in his words and deeds. His journal gives us even greater insight into his character and his desire for true love and made him very endearing and had me rooting for his HEA. Ms. Evers crafted a romantically atmospheric story that's vividly detailed in its depiction of man and beast. The steamy BDSM encounters were seamlessly woven in to the storyline to make them feel believable and intensified the burgeoning relationship between Belle and the Beast. These scenes were not only super hot but maintained their romantic qualities through the gentleness the Beast displayed throughout. With such compelling main characters and a sweat-inducing romance the only thing I found a bit disappointing were the secondary characters. With the exception of Belle's father, the secondary characters felt unnecessary and I wish their time had been devoted to Belle and the Beast instead as their romance held me captive. The ending too felt a bit rushed and open-ended. Ultimately, Ms. Evers has brought another wonderful fairytale to life and I look forward to what she has planned next!

"Beauty and the Beast: an erotic re-imagining" by Shoshanna Evers is a very sensual reworking of a beloved fairy tale classic. Prince Frederick has been condemned by his evil stepmother to exist in a horrific form unless he can find someone who will gift him with her true love. Given his proclivities, she also has to be willing to participate wholeheartedly in his kinky sexual activities. He is sinking further into his bestial nature until potential salvation in the form of virginal Belle Castelle is dangled in front of him but will he be able to get her to see the man within the Beast? Maybe not in time to save him. This erotic novella is a very imaginative version of the Beauty and the Beast tale and provides a fun and nicely detailed read. The increasing levels of spice as the story progresses is enhanced by the magical elements that are part of the enchanted castle. The dichotomy of the Beast and his human counterpart, Prince Frederick, add to Belle’s confusion and their tutelage in some of the elements of BDSM forces her to evaluate what she wants from a lover. She is a somewhat irksome heroine who can’t quite decide what she wants at first but she eventually redeems herself by becoming more assertive. This is an interesting and enjoyable adult fairy tale and I would be interested in seeing what other stories this innovative author has created. A copy of this title was provided to me for an honest review.

I love any re-telling of beauty and the beast. This version was very disappointing. If you're looking for a sexy romantic erotic version of beauty and the beast, then look else where.

Once again, Shoshanna has delivered a delightful erotic treat for erotica lovers. Gripping and well-paced, I read the whole tale in one sitting. This page-turner kept me wondering whch parts from the classic fairy tale would play out and which parts were the reimagined version. Well, Shoshanna did a fine job keeping me guessing. I was hooked to the very last sentence.  Besides the obvious stars in the story, I found the other characters just as amusing. The constable and his wife served as comic relief for me—they were so serious about their jobs yet perfectly opposed to Belle's father's desires. Although their convincing roles were quickly drawn up and integral to the rest of the story, Shoshanna has a way of keeping readers engaged in the star characters with breathtaking suspense. Above all else, I love Shoshanna's books because all the hot-as-hell book boyfriends are respectful and act on consent. So sex with these dominant boyfriends stays in the realm of sexy—even though this book boyfriend happens to be the Beast and likes his sex kinky. By the end of the book, *you'd* want to bed the Beast! Beauty was also a great heroine in that she showed concern for people, fought with her inner demons (or beasts) and stood her ground when it mattered. She was the perfect balance between the traditional devout nurturer and the modern independent woman who could fend for herself. Shoshanna's reimagined tale is far more gratifying than its predecessors in that readers get permission to experience a sexual being, a sexual Beauty, with a sexy, kinky Beast. Overall, I highly recommend this book. The plot is fresh, the characters convincing, the sex steamy, plus there's the happily ever after I've come to expect from Shoshanna's works. I'd say, snuggle up warm under the covers, download the ebook or curl up with the paperback and enjoy a warm night before diving into that chilly stormy night when Beast came into being... I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Jade Onyx, Author of Prison Break, JadeOnyxBooks.com
