"I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review"

Beauty and The Beast is my favorite fairy tale, so when I learned one of my favorite authors of erotica had written an erotic reimagining, I was very excited, Even more exciting, was the opportunity to read an advanced copy and give my review before it's release.

The storyline of Beauty And The Beast is pretty much the same one we all know from the classic books and films down to the Disney animated version. The one difference he

A quick, smutty read of Beauty and the Beast.
Belles father is held hostage by Beast when Belle takes his place, and the courting begins.
Love this story, the re-telling was great. Smutty fluff, angst and a Happy Ending =)

Beauty and the Beast is my favorite story ever, both in terms of Disney and the fairytale. When I saw that this book was an erotica retelling of the story I was very excited thinking that this book could marry the hopeless romantic and sex crazed parts of my brain. Maybe because of this, my expectations were too high, but this book did NOT deliver on any of those fronts.


I think the writer could have done SO much more with this than she did.

The romance Eh…. Story was somewhat romantic because th

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

So...I will never be viewing Beauty and the Beast the same. Now all I'll think about is how the Beast ravished/spanked/whipped/etc a (willing) Beauty while a prisoner in his castle.

The writing style was so reminiscent of fairy tales I've read (I took a German Fairy Tale course in college), but with a splash of erotica/BDSM. It's odd to read if you're expecting traditional fictional prose, but once I got used to it, I quite liked it. The style is good fo

I'm so glade I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads. This book was amazing! It's now my favorite adult beauty and the beast story!
This was a short Erotic retelling of the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale. To free her father, Belle agrees to stay for 6 months and do everything the Beast asks. At night while dreaming, the Beast is able to visit Belle as his human self, Prince Fredrick, and convinces her to submit to the Beast and learn to love him. She knows this means submitting to him sexually and, while she is a virgin and nervous, she finds herself excited by the BDSM play the Beast aka Prince Fredrick enjoys.

This book was a good retelling of Beauty and the Beast one of my favorite Disney stories. My only complaint was that the audio version of the story is kind of annoying. I really hated that it seemed like we need to understand the greater meaning to certain words like "Human" or "Beastly". To me it was a draw back, like I can't understand the double meaning to the beasts eyes looked "Human", you had to do a horrible dubbing over the word.

However I did listen to this book and did thoroughly enjoy

Not for me.

I just couldn’t get into this book. I gave it two stars for the first love scene, because it was hot, but the dialog was strange. New age sounding dialect with old world slang thrown in and no description of anything or anyone left me confused about the era. Scenes weren’t described at all. It felt like I was just reading dialogue. Dnf.

I honestly read this awhile ago and can’t remember

I literally read this a year ago I can’t remember if I even liked it. I do remember skipping pages. Unfortunately that is all I can give on this review.

Short, ridiculous read. Immature writing with zero tension or character development. Like an 8th grader wrote fanfic after seeing the live action Disney Movie.

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 behin

I've been trying to work one of Shoshanna's books into my Psychocat Reads schedule for a while now, and I'm thrilled I finally did.

Shoshanna's version of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is an erotic re-imagining of the old classic. This novella was engaging, fast-paced, and delightfully smutty. In short, it was everything I'd expected from a Shoshanna Evers book.

Characters: Belle is not quite the naive, innocent girl from the Disney fairy tale. This Belle has a wild side and is ready to have some fun. At

"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 Castel ...more

I'm only vaguely familiar with the story of Beauty and the Beast. Which I think is a very good thing. I was able to read Shoshanna's wonderful version without comparing it to anything that I might have read before. I read the entire story in one sitting.

I have read many of Shoshanna's books as she is one of my favorite authors, and this one is quite different from most of the other books of hers that I've read. It is a retelling of a fairy tale that was first written in the 1700s but an erotic v

Let's start with.....I got an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have always been a big fan of Beauty and the Beast stories so I was very excited to get this book.

This is a fairly quick read (139 pages). I read it over a couple of nights after work.

The basic story of Belle (Beauty) and Beast is there in this story but there are also some interesting changes to the story. The author builds the relationship up between Belle and her Beast. Keep in mind that in the Beauty

This isn't your regular retelling of the beloved fairy tale. So be prepared to be left speechless with this erotic re-imagining.

I have to admit, this book really left me somewhat shocked, and believe me that's a hard thing to do. I read all kinds of erotic books, but this one left me scratching my head a time or two. I had to read this novella two times, just to wrap my head around the idea that there were some BDSM elements in one of my all time Disney favorites. heard me right. When y

Well I am here to tell you of a fairy tale that was dear to my heart when I was a child growing up, this fairy tale take by the amazingly talented Shoshanna Evers has not only brought my favourite tale alive it has brought it a lot more dark and most definitely not for the faint of heart also this is for adult eyes only!!!

This is a story of a brave women who tells the beast to take her as his prisoner and let her father go free. In doing so she submits fully to the beast and what ever he may des

Well, this was quite a blush-worthy take on the classic!
I was on a re-telling kick, but I wanted something a little on the grittier side. Ms. Evers definitely came through in that regard; can we say super steamy?!
As much as I enjoyed the read, I just couldn't give it a full five stars. Parts of it pulled so much from the Disney movie that it started to feel more like a sexual spoof than an actual re-imagining. In addition, I honestly think that the novella could have benefited from a little mor

Beauty and the Beast is my absolute favorite Disney tale so when I saw this erotic re-imagining I knew it was only a matter of time before I gave in and read it. The title definitely doesn’t lie about being an erotic re-imagining, there is barely a moment in this story that isn’t filled with sex, sexual images, or sexual tension. I wish the story was longer to flush out more moments between Belle and the Beast, and to also have more story to enjoy.

I think if I had one complaint it would be that

If you really liked the Disney movie Beauty and the Beast but wished they spiced it up a bit, your wish is answered. This is an erotic novel so the language is quite strong and the situations explicit. There is also a BDSM vibe with Beauty submitting to the Beast, calling him Sir and getting spanked.

The story itself is very similar to the movie version mentioned but with frequent sexual interactions. There was a character arc for the Beast aka Frederick and also for Beauty which made it an enjoy

We all know the story of "Beauty And The Beast" from the Disney movie. However, the story has been told in many different versions before it was presented as a Disney movie. It truly is a tale as old as time. But the best written version of the tale appeared in 1756 by Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont. Shoshanna Evers has taken Beaumont's version and made it, well sexier. She's kept the original idea of the story within her story with the exception of a few small changes and very BIG ones.

I can never watch Beauty and the Beast again without thinking of this story. Belle and the Beast aren't so innocent anymore.

This is a wonderfully erotic story that combines a well-known fairy tale with spanking. The Beast is sexy and exactly the way her should be for the story. I only wish the story was longer, which means Shoshanna Evers wrote it well and made me want to stay in this world even longer.

I read excerpts from this story before it released, and I was excited when I won the ebook fr

I love this book. Yes, it is a story that has been around for a while. But, in saying that, I think this take on it is perfect. I love how they are able to meet in their dreams. I thought that was so perfect. I could not put this book down and read it in one night. I found my self reading and watching everything unfold in my head. And only great books do that for me. You will not be disappointed when you get this book. It is one to keep with you, in your favorites pile.

This book kept my interest from the first page to the last. I read it in one sitting. I didn't want to put it down because I truly cared how it would end. I enjoyed the retelling of a familiar story with the addition of a bit of naughtiness. It was erotic without making me blush excessively. I can say that I will be reading more of her books!
I received this book from the author after winning it on Goodreads. What a nice surprise when I opened the envelope.
I like retelling of fairytales especially erotica :-p
And unlike other stories with the same theme that I read before, this one is goodly written.

Note to self: I don't think I've used the adjective "goodly" before haha

Dreamy, sexy, erotic adult version of a beautiful timeless story. Absolutely loved it didn't want the book to end. I fell in love with Beast, he was so haunting, dark and sexy. Beauty (Belle) is courageous and lovely and she loves her Beast. Shoshanna Evers does it again!

“Belle blinked at the vision before her and inhaled sharply. Books! Books everywhere. The enormous room was two stories tall, with a spiraling stairway on each side leading up to the upper level. Leather-bound volumes filled the shelves from floor to ceiling on both floors, and the upper level looked down upon them with an open loft area surrounded by an ornate wrought-iron railing. Several rolling ladders were in front of the bookcases to allow easy access to even the highest-placed books. And best of all were the chairs and couches around the floor, and the pillows piled high by the windows, perfect for getting comfortable with a story. The library was filled with sunlight during the day, as well as having numerous lamps available for cozy nighttime reading.” 0 likes
