I'm not the man for her. I'm her Beast.

I was broken beyond repair. Damaged beyond healing. Deeply scarred. Alone with thoughts and feelings of regret that I could never let see the light of day.

Until Isabelle.

My Belle.

She came back into my life and changed everything.

But I warned her that I'll never be 'that' man.

The one she knew growing up. The one who would've given h

I was so excited when I came across another “Beauty and the Beast” themed story. Unfortunately, as hard as I tried... I just couldn’t find myself get into feeling any kind of passion for the characters or the story. I also found the dialogue between all of the characters to be awkward. Then I became frustrated with how many times it was repeated that the hero and heroine were friends. I felt that I didn’t need to be reminded of that constantly.

I really don’t like to bash any books, I just felt t

Ten years ago, Knox left his best friend Isabelle and never contacted her again, so when he sees her at a mutual acquaintance’s engagement party, he’s confused of his feelings for her: should he apologize and try to make amends and be friends again? Or should he cut his losses, accept they’ll never be the same, and at least get the chance to sleep with her before moving on?

I couldn’t get into this, mostly because I didn’t really like the characters, but also because I feel like there were a lot

This was an enjoyable romance by author Bella Love-Wins. I can't really call it a second chance romance because these two characters, Knox and Belle, were never involved in anything more than friendship. However, when they are reunited after 10 years it becomes more of a friends to lovers situation. While it didn't really have the Beauty and the Beast theme, (although he is scarred from MMA fighting), it still was an engaging read.

This is a modern take on a fairytale classic Beauty and the Beast. In Beauty and her Billionaire Beast by Bella Love Wins, Belle and Knox were the best of friends growing up until Knox moved away to go to college while they were in high school. Bella never heard or saw from her best friend again. His silence nearly broke Bella’s heart because she loved him yet he never kept in touch with her after going off to college. Fast forward 10 years later, Bella and Knox meet again at a party of known ac

Another modern adaptation of the fairy tale.

Knox, Isabelle and Foster were friends (neighbors) since adolescence. All three were inseparable. Until Knox left for university and lost contact with Belle, more concerned with enjoying his life.

Years later, they meet again at a party of known acquaintances.
The feel as strange in front of each other at first. Belle never understood why Knox turned back on her, feeling guilty that she had done something wrong. But before the night is over, they set on

Well-written, dark, emotional, and steamy, Beauty and Her Billionaire Beast just confirmed that Bella Love-Wins has that something special that tells you she loves to write. She weaved a story of heartbreak, angst, intense chemistry, second chances, passion, and love.

I volunteered to review an advance reader copy of this book.

Beauty and her beast. Knox calls himself a beast. I never really saw him as a beast. His underground fighting aside, he was your typical bad boy. Isabelle didn't consider herself a beauty. They used to be best friends in high school. When Knox left for college, he left the friendship without explanation. 10 years later they meet up a engagement party. they hook up and part. What follows is a back and forth, tug of war of emotions between the two. With interfering r

I made it to 50% but I just had to stop. I tried to continue it to at least finish it but I just couldn't. The story wasn't bad, but I was not a fan of the author's style. Given the story she was writing, I didn't like how juvenile the characters sounded when referring to each other. Her type of writing seems great for YA; it's just how she writes their POVs. Plus by half way in, not much had happened. It is a shame because it was book 2 I really wanted to read, but figured I would go in order, ...more

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book and this is my honest review/opinion. I enjoyed the book. It was a fun and fast story to read. I liked the plot. The conflict between the two main characters was realistic. Belle was a little too forgiving to Knox for ignoring her for the previous ten years after being best friends through high school. But, people grow apart after high school so that wasn't far fetched. Also, the sex scene wasn't over the top like some other romances I have read. I woul ...more

Knox Steele was born into a wealthy family. He was loved and he knew his life was going to be great until one day pain and loss entered his world and nothing has been the same since.

Learning to deal with his grief was challenging until he discovered cage fighting. The physical punishment given and received in the ring numbs his loss and allows him to deal with his grief the only way he can. For Knox "The Beast" Steele, control is power and he gets that in the ring.

It works well until one day he

He finds himself looking into the eyes of the best friend, and secret love he had left behind years before- Isabelle, the quintessential good girl who for as " mad " as she is for his abrupt departure from her life, is drawn back into his charismatic ways!

I loved this rendition of Beauty and the Beast. It is one of the best classic fairytales and now is brought back into modern times with this story.

Knox is a billionaire and is very much anti social . He is invited to a party and sees a girl from his past Isabelle "his Belle" she was his only female friend and many people thought they were more but they never crossed that line. Now they both want more from each other, Knox is a beast that believes he does not deserve her. Both her parents and his

I'm a fan of Beauty & the Beast (BatB) retellings so the blurb for this book sounded interesting to me but in the end I didn't feel like it had much in common with BatB at all. They refer to him as a "beast" sometimes, and her name is Belle, but the storyline itself didn't remind me of BatB in any way. The writing itself is good/correct, and I liked the hero's grandfather and his best friend, but I struggled to find interest in the main characters or the story overall. It was just kind of bl ...more
