This was a great quick read. Years ago there was a programme called Beauty and the Beast. This reminded me of that programme.

Lily finds herself at the door of Aidan, the beasts mansion. Although it had familiarity to it I thought the author did a great job of weaving her uniqueness into it.

As this is part one of the story I'm so glad I've got book two sitting on my kindle to jump into as soon as I get a few hours sleep. Great read.

I was graciously given a copy of Lily and the Beast for an honest review and OMG! This was such a awesome read.. I literally could not put this book down. A wonderful debut novel by Amelia Jayne. Lily and the Beast is a moderately dark, erotic, very thrilling and seriously addictive.


Lily Gray's father finds himself faced with Jail. The only way to avoid that is by sending one of his daughters to be the sex slave of a wealthy recluse with a sadistic fetish. Lily feels responsible for the reason

I received a copy of Lily and the Beast for a blog tour and my honest review.

Oh wow. Seriously, I couldn't put this down. Amelia Jayne's debut novel was an erotically charged awesome version of a beauty and the beast story with a super cliffy.
The characters are so intriguing and she tells us just enough to keep us on edge and wondering...what the heck is up with Aiden..Is he disfigured, just not wanting people to see the devestation in his eyes? WHAT????
Lily is a sweetheart. Kind, good hearted,

Geez, this one will grab you by the throat and shake you silly!
Faced with a decision that no-one let alone a parent would ever want to have to consider. Lily’s father is facing serious prison time but is given the chance to avoid seeing the inside of a jail cell by agreeing to give up one of his daughters for the next year.
Yeh, like that is ever going to happen I hear you say – well scared people make poor choices and feeling partially responsible for the whole situation, Lily agrees to be the

If there is something I have a weakness for is the Beauty and the Beast plot. I just love the wicked romance inherent to a helpless woman who falls prey to a beast of a man. After all, there's something primal in belonging to a powerful man, being at his mercy, only to turn him inside out and bring light to his darkness. This is what I was hoping for in this sensual and modern version of the fairy tale.

It really spins the story with a naughty twist. Lily has sold her freedom for a year to a recl

This is an amazing read! Lily is on her way to pay a debt to a man who can send her dad to jail. But she never really sees the man that she has agreed to pay a debt that her dad owes. Lily has to wear a blond fold every time she's called upon for the sexual experiences that she will never forget!

4 stars!

Lily and the Beast is a HOT, Hot, Little, Quick Read! ;)

It tells the story of Lily Gray, a 20 year old girl, who, in exchange for her father's freedoom (from going to prision), signed a one year contract, willing herself to be owned by Aidan Pierce, a wealthy, powerful, 34 years old bachelor.

Lily is forced to spend a year together with Aidan, being his Sub.

This was a very adult variation on one of my favorite fairy tales. You have Lily, the heroine of the story who makes a deal to live with "The Beast" for a year to pay off her father's debt. There are plenty of modern twists from the laptop Lily writes her thoughts on to the fact that she was pulled from college for this year away. But there is also the extensive library and the kind older house keeper.
Then you have "The Beast" Aidan. There is a mystery surrounding exactly what makes him a beast.

I was given an advanced copy of this book to offer an honest review. When I was given a brief blurb about this book, I was expecting to "like" it as I didn't think I would care for a retelling of Beauty and the Beast.
Wow was I wrong. I loved it!
I couldn't put it this book down trying to figure out what made billionaire Aidan Pierce into a self imposed recluse, and why college student Lily Gray was sold to him to pay a debt.
This was a well written, consuming novel that I couldn't put down. This

Wow. What a story. Talk about a screwed up man. Aidan has some serious issues of which we learn a bit about as the story is told. Lily is doing this to help keep her dad out of prison due to health issues. I just wish we would have known a little more about Aidan and what made him the way he is. We get bits of his story but not enough to totally understand where he is coming from. Lily I get its her need to help family that puts her in this situation. As Lily gives herself over to Aidan a

This is a modern Beauty and the Beast themed story but with darker characters. Lily agrees to become the property of Aidan for the next year in order to keep her father from going to prison. She's signed the Contract and has a list of rules she is expected to follow. The main two rules being she is not allowed to be around Aidan without wearing a blindfold and she can never touch his face. As time passes, Lily's feelings for Aidan begin to grow.

Aidan feels as though he doesn't deserve h

This is the first book of two


When signing a contract to remove yourself from your own life, friends & family to become something you never wanted.

He wasn't sure about her, she seemed rather plain and ordinary...........

How little he knew!!

Can love happen when you have never known about the person you are with?

Beauty and The Beast given an erotic twist!!!

Aiden Pierce, millionaire, golden haired and extremely good looking had his life shattered after a devastating accident. Now he is a recluse shut away in his mansion.
Lily Gray is on her way to meet Aiden and become his sex slave for the next year, thanks to her thieving father and a contract she signed.

OMG What a brilliant amazing book. I ended up reading both books in one sitting as I was so engrossed by the story of Lily and Aiden. I feel so lucky that I had the chance to read these two books as ARCS.

We meet Lily who is sent to Aiden Pierce for a year and also has a taste for all things sadistic. The reason Lily is sent to him is that Aiden has vital information on her dad that could put him in jail for a long time. But he is willing to keep it to himself in return for one of Lily's dad's da

Lily and the Beast is an erotic retelling of the classic fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast. Lily Gray, the youngest of three sisters, has just been contracted out to Aidan Pierce by her father to keep himself out of prison. Lily agrees to the one year "live in" contract because she feels like her father is in this position because of her. Each night she is blindfolded and summoned to his room, she never sees him, yet she finds herself falling for him and Aidan finds himself doing things out of ch ...more

Thank you for this ARC! It was an amazing story. I was amazed at how Lily was so accepting of the contract even though she really had no idea what was going to happen. She loved her father dearly to accept this to keep him out of jail. I think Aidan didn't really realize what he was getting himself into too. Lily is not one to not stand up for herself. Aidan had his hands full the moment she walked through is door. The sex scenes in this book are amazingly HAWT! Thank you again for giving me a c ...more

It's a dark re-telling story about beauty and the beast and I really want to continue to the second part of the series.

I like the relationship between Lily and Aidan and the connection between them is slowly bonded and I am expecting a great stories in the next one.

I like how the author make the stories and develop the characters n such way. We did have Belle and Lily but Lily is more sass i would say in my opinion and Aidan, the beast, in my opinion is strict but gentle in the same time. There

When Lily's dad gets caught doing something he shouldn't, Lily steps up and offers to 'pay' his debt. Leaving her family, friends and every day life behind, Lily finds herself at the mercy of Aidan after agreeing to spend a year with him. I loved Aidan. Absolutely loved him, the hot and cold of his character, the confusion over his feelings and actions just added to his character. Will definitely be reading more from this author.

I sooooo loved this book. Not because of the hawt steamy sex which was very well written but for the story and character building. And I love a good Beauty and the Beast type book. So far the Beast is a beast and keeping true the character. I missed that there would be a book two but I have already pre-ordered book 2. Luckily only a week away from release. Found myself a new fav. author.

Oh Yes! I must review this book! A dirty twist to Beautiful & the Beast. I absolutely loved it! I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. Moving straight into books 2 to learn all Aidan's secrets. So glad I found this book recommended from a group on sale.

OMG!!!! Lily and the Beast is so worth reading. It has everything I love, it's hot, sexy, and erotic and yes The Beast aka Aiden is one very sexy alpha male. And I loved Lily right from the beginning she's loving, kind and she can tame her beast. I can't wait to read the next book.

great start to a series but not sure if I will continue it anytime soon, the whole blind fold thing was a bit too, often too weird for me. A touch over done but I loved the charectors so much I might try this series again soon

Sizzling hot ....

Really enjoyed this sizzling hot little read, had my kindle on fire.
It was very intriguing and not revealing too much, so I'm diving straight into book #2.

If you in the mood for a steaming hot quick read with sex aplenty then you love this.

This was a steamy read. The sex scenes were really good, and I really like the characters. For me the book was a little small (just because I was really enjoying reading this book), but the story plot was good. I would love to read the next book in the series.
