I have to say that this is one of the worst books I have ever had the pleasure of reading. It is supposed to be an erotica romance novel based on Beauty and the Beast – which I have been all about lately since the live action movie has been released. Most of the book was filler and I am pretty sure that the only actual sex in the book was actually rape. It was a quick read but it is really not even worth your time. The book is very very loosely based on Beauty and the Beast – the main girl is named Isabel and she is the servant at a castle where they are whipped if they don’t follow the rules and then when the prince has a party they all have to be naked servants for the party. Just… trust me and don’t bother with this one.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
A Beast’s Belle is a fairy tale retold – echoing the ground-breaking BDSM Beauty books by Anne Rice.
The novel offers a twist on a classic story; Isabel is the daughter of a widowed inventor and tinkerer, but leaves home to join the indentured staff of a manor. Upon arriving, she explores the rigid structure of domestic servitude and discipline in the manor, and eventually grows fascinated with the Master of the house, a feral man with curious proclivities and voracious appetites. Isabel tries to find her way in a new life at the manor, but quickly finds herself bound up with the Master of the house and engrossed in the lifestyle and ritual the manor’s occupants share.
