In Bed with the Beast is book two in the Naughty Princess Club series by Tara Sivec. Each one of these adorable, sexy, sweet tales is based loosely on a fairy tale, the first being Cinderella, and this one if you haven’t guessed it is Beauty and the Beast.

In Bed with the Beast is the second book in the 'Naughty Princess Club' series, and as much as I enjoyed the first book, I loved this one even more. This book features Isabelle Reading, and her very own Beast, Vincent. 

Belle is the youngest and most innocent of the Naughty Princess Club. She's using the club to save her library and move out of her father's basement. One of those things happens before planned, though. When Belle's dad kicks her out of the house, she doesn't know what

I gotta admit. These books are just pure fluffy fun. I love em. I'm not even crazy about the story of "Beauty and the Beast" and I still had a really good time with this one.

We met Belle back in book one of this series At the Stroke of Midnight. She is the nerdy, bookwormish character who spouts out random facts and lives in her father's basement. She and her father have an argument over her new friends. (Friends that have started a naughty princess stripping business) and he kicks her out. She

This book started off really good but around halfway through I just started to get bored, and I ended up skimming the last half of it. Belle and her friends acted and spoke like a bunch of teenagers. Since we never get any of Vincent's POV, he just came across like a one-dimensional cardboard cutout. I didn't feel any real connection between Vincent or Belle. Not to mention she spends the first half of the book going on one blind date after the other.

In Bed with the Beast by Tara Sivec is the second book in the Naughty Princess Club romantic comedy series. While each book in this series features a separate couple and could be understood as a standalone I’d highly suggest picking them up from the beginning to get the full story and all of the laughs.

The first book of this series, At the Stroke of Midnight, introduced all three of the female leads in the series as they came together and became friends. The trio couldn’t be more opposite of one

This is my third book by Tara Sivec, and I just don't think her particular brand of humor is for me. I really wanted to like this cute, light story that loosely follows Beauty and the Beast, but most of the jokes fell flat.

Belle is the type of heroine that I don't typically enjoy. She is 25 but acts like a petulant preteen, and she is supposed to be charmingly spastic and socially unaware, but she comes across as immature. I found her spouting of random facts to be sort of... puzzling.

The second book in Tara Sivec’s Naughty Princess Club series, gives us her take on my favorite fairy-tales of all, and In Bed with the Beast was a joy to read, from start to finish.

I hold up my hand in shame and say it’s been a long while since I have read anything from this author, and after reading the opening chapter of this one I was literally kicking myself for leaving it so long. Needless to say I absolutely adored Belle and Vincent’s Story.

I adore this series! And each book is better than the last!

In Bed with the Beast was a hilariously sweet romance between two opposites. Between the antics with Belle and her friends, and Vincent and his moody broody aloofness, this story had just the right about of girl power and romance to make me fall in love.

I voluntarily read an ARC of this book. A is for Alpha B is for Books.

➳The fantasy of finding your true prince charming, this romance novel brings humor to the level of persuasion and an addiction to Vincent and Belle...

Not a lot of authors are able to achieve such a thing, since my humor is at its minimum right now so I'm glad I was able to thoroughly enjoy this novel by Tara Sivec.

Tara Sivec is on a roll with this series!!! I wasn’t disappointed with the first book and I sure as heck didn’t feel that way about this one. If anything, I think I fell in love with these characters even more if that’s possible. I’m beyond wrapped up in this fairytale and I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect ending for this one.

It’s been a while since I’ve read a book by Tara Sivec, but from what I remembered, I thoroughly enjoyed each experience. This read was no different. In Bed with the Beast was a hilarious tale loosely based on Beauty and the Beast that tackled a woman’s growth and development into self-sufficiency and independence. It told a story of kindness and charity, of funny hijinks and antics, of the bond found with family and friends, of the intricacies of interpersonal relationships, and of faith in h ...more

I know I’ve read books by Tara Sivec before so when I saw this new one coming out, I definitely knew I had to check it out.

With a nod towards the classic story of Beauty and the Beast, this book was very humorous. Almost written with the tongue in cheek type of humor, you can’t help but fall for both of the characters in this book.

I remember her asking me if i've ever read Tara Sivec before and when I said "No" her response was priceless. After that I had to see what all the fuss was about.

In Bed with the Beast is a standalone is part of the Naughty Princess Club. This is a loose fairy tale of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. The character’s name are actually Beast and Belle which I find really cute. Okay it’s their nick names, but still cute.

Belle lives with her over protective dad, but she wants more to life. She wants to save her library and the only thing she can think of is stripping. This plan was hashed out in the first book, but don’t worry, the author explains the s

But he kind of throws her out after finding out that she's one of those riffraff hookers! LOL!

Hot dang if The Naughty Princess Club series isn’t proving to be consistently delightful. In Bed With the Beast isn’t as laugh out loud funny as At the Stroke of Midnight, but it is undoubtedly humorous and every bit as entertaining.

Belle is a librarian who is struggling to keep her beloved library open. At 25-years-old, she also wants to stop living in her overbearing father’s basement. Sadly, money is tight. Her potential knight in shining armor comes in the unlikely form of a formidable strip

"...there's nothing more rewarding than the risk of falling in love. Sometimes you hit a few roadblocks along the way, but it's always worth it in the end."

Tara Sivec's unique blend of romance, humor, and lovable characters is one that I don't think I will ever get tired of reading. In Bed with the Beast was an adorably funny slow burn romance with a fairy tale twist. The kind of story that will blow your heart and make you pee your pants.

One of my favorite things about this book—this series,

If you liked the first book, you'll like this one as well. If you didn't, well, you probably shouldn't even try to read this one.

Seriously, the characters were so similar it felt like reading about the same people just in different situations. Same vocabulary, same words, same reactions.

That's not necessarily a bad thing, if you liked the previous book. IF.

I kind of expected a bit more from this read, I thought that the characters have more potential. Well, maybe they did, but I
I love any kind of fairy tale retelling and I especially love one based on Beauty and the Beast. This book did not disappoint.

Belle is a bookworm who spouts random facts out at any given time. She’s never lived on her own, never been in a relationship and she has never had any friends. Now, she’s been booted out of her father’s basement, running a business with her two new best friends and is falling hard for Beast.

I love a growly, grunting alpha hero and Beast/Vincent certainly lived up to that

Isabelle Reading (heh - Belle the reader? Very cute) is a twenty five year old librarian who lives with her dad, her nose buried deep in a book, when she’s not awkwardly rattling off some random facts to cover her nervousness. She’s become friends with Cin (the heroine from the first book) and Ariel, and is working her way up to stripping to make some money to help keep her library open (just go with it). Now she just has to break free from oppressive overprotective hold of her father.

It’s hard to give the modern fairytale retelling a pass in my case—sucker that I am for all of spins and takes we can possibly have on them—which is why ‘In Bed with the Beast’ was one that I was eager to get my hands on.

In this case, it’s about a librarian and a bouncer, aka, Belle and the Beast, the supposedly shy librarian and the surly bouncer. Throw in the home stripping business that 3 women have started into the mix and I was beyond intrigued at this risqué proposition and take on the fa
