Weronika -  Little Steamy Reads
I am utterly speechless. This book is the best Beauty and the Beast retelling I've ever read! Skye Warren has recreated the well-known story in a perfect way, adding to it a bit of angst and a lot of steam. I was unable to put it down! This forbidden romance with age gap is everything I could wish for. And I need more!

Erin cleans the house of ex-military Blake Morris 2 times a week. That’s how the girl pays for her tuition. But somewhere between wiping the countertops and vacuuming, Erin develop

Forbidden romance. Twisted fairytale. Decisions, addictive read!!

Can I just start with how much I love skye warren?!? This book just makes me love her writing that much more. She takes a fairytale and creates a masterpiece that is dirty and delicious. She creates a forbidden plot and sucks you in. It taps into that forbidden part of your brain that makes you happy and question your morals all at the same time. It was a delicious read that I couldn’t put down and finished in one sitting. Another

Erin could not help but crush on Professor Blake Morris. In order to support herself while going to university, she cleans his house for him. Yes, it is true that he was injured in the war and half of his face is burned pretty badly. But the other half of him is so gorgeous! His personality is also pretty outstanding. She could not help herself as she longs to be with him and to discuss her courses and more with him. He is such an intelligent man!

Surprisingly to her, she finds out he is also att

This is book one in A Modern Fairy Tale Duet. If your a fan of this author and even if your not a fan you don’t know what your missing as this was so good.

Erin is a fabulous character. She’s strong and will fight for what she wants. As well as working hard at college she cleans Mr. Morris house twice a week to help with her tuition.

Blake Morris. Damn he’s hot. Scarred both on the inside and the outside he knows what it’s like to be at rock bottom. Once Erin entered his home and his life he kno

This spin on the beauty and the beast was good. I loved Blake, and what he went through and how he carried not only scar's on the surface but also how it affected him psychologically was heart breaking and it broke my heart to read his thoughts and how he saw himself. While I loved him I didn't much care for erin. Even though she accepted Blake and made him feel alive again I just felt like they weren't a good fit. I don't have a problem with the age difference,but she seemed not on his level. A ...more

Skye Warren has given the ancient fairytale a sensual, seductive and sinful twist in Beauty and the Professor. The thrill of forbidden love and intensity of overpowering love make this story extraordinary. Skye Warren's beautiful words gripped my heart and claimed it wholly from beginning to the end.

Erin and Blake belongs to two opposite ends of social spectrum. Erin is a poor student who works as house cleaner to pay for her studies. Blake was once a proud military man with a bright political

The first part of a delicious tale that gives new purpose and perspective of a fairytale we are all familiar with, a modern twist on that classic Beauty and the Beast. A wonderful expression of not just love but also acceptance both by others and yourself.
I was blown away by the passion and intensity of the book, the message was powerful, the fact that we all have thoughts and feelings that if we allow will inhibit and curtail the possibilities that life has to offer. It brought to the fore the

I love this sexy twist on Beauty and the Beast and couldn’t stop reading till the end! It’s erotic and intense but so much more. Erin cleans Blake’s house but one day finds him in a embarrassing position that makes her ache for him. Erin is a strong woman in college trying to pay her bills and live. Blake is damaged in his eyes and feels like he will always be by himself forever. It’s a great romance that has you hoping for a happy ending! 5/5 stars I can’t wait till the next book!

So...Apparently I fucks real hard with Skye Warren.

Who knew?

I read 2 full novels in one day and I still had time to go out and do some things. I just could not put these books down.

Beauty and the Professor was almost a 4 star read but there was just a little too much sex.
Obviously its a smutty book but after awhile I just skimmed the sex scenes. That not to say that the sex scenes weren't hot. They most certainly were but there were just too many.

Audiobook review. This is a different take on Beauty and the Beast with the heroine taking a more active role in pursuing the hero. Their intimate times were sexy but the plot didn’t really get to any parts that showed much character development yet. I’m assuming that means the second part will show some growth.

The narrators Stephen Dexter and Lia Langola, did a great job with the characters. Their pace, tone, and pitch were strong. Their enunciation was clear. I definitely want to hear more of

Unfortunately, this book was problematic for me in quite a few ways. First and foremost, this is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. For this aspect, I think the author did a great job at bringing out the necessary characteristics for both the characters and I can certainly relate them to the beloved fairytale. Secondly, I love a student/teacher romances and haven't seen a new one to fit into the genre in ages. So t

Finding their Way

This is right up there with my top reads so far this year. A forbidden romance, a younger woman and older man. It sounds cliche but the story is not.

There was a depth to it that had you invested in both our leads.

This man was complex; Professor who was looking to the future, a possibility in politics. The Military man who has one last tour overseas which changed his life in so many ways. Scarred not only on the outside but deep within. Rejected by his fiancée who I could not st

Well this is a hot, sexy modern twist on an old fairy-tale. I have read the original beauty novellas and loved that Skye has re-covered and collaborated them.
Full of emotion, indifference and angst. This is sure to pull on your heart strings while dampening your panties.

I received an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. Review and blog tour can be found on *Milky Way of Books*

I had read the serieal of this series and I was delighted to see the serial parts re-releasing with new covers and content. There are elemtns of Beauty in the Beast in it, but it's contemporary, has lots of emotions and deals with both the university life and PTSD. The way both Erin and Blake fit together is also very well made.

I do love modern retelling of Fairytales, especially those of Beauty & the Beast and I’ve read a few. This one however, I could barely get through. From the first page it was very insta-love between the two main characters. The author went straight into the physical without me getting a chance to really get to know the characters or care about them. It threw me off and I ended up skimming most of this.

I found it very badly written and simply boring. I always feel bad when I have to write and rate a bad book, usually keeping it short so let's just say I came out a bit dissatisfied with this read. OK, more than a bit.

4 stars !!

This was such a beautiful and modern reimagining of Beauty and Beast. The writing was captivating and made me connect with the characters. I expect nothing less of Skye Warren. A favourite must-read author of mine.

Erin is attending college on scholarships and loans. She works for a cleaning service to pay for other bills and utilities. And through that she ends up cleaning for scarred veteran, Blake. Blake was besotted for her. He enjoy

2.75 stars, disappointed to a TEA!

Very disappointed. I'm over here thinking this is going to be another good Skye Warren book, but nope. I was honestly done with this book before I even had gotten to the halfway mark, but I still pushed through. I will say though that I will read the last book in this duet all because of the ending WHICH BY THE WAY I DID NOT ENJOY!

That ending got me all types of mad lol. This modern retelling of the beauty and the beast with the trope of teacher-student roman

It wasn't horrible, but it was amazing.
If you're into steamy sex between a professor and a student, this is the book for you.

I did appreciate how much consent was included on this book, as not a lot of books include much consent from what I've seen. However, I did not appreciate how possessive they were to each other. I don't know who likes being told that they belong to their partner, but to each their own.

I thought it was a creative idea for Blake to be a war vet. Especially with what was done

This has so many ups and downs I wanted to bash my head against a wall. You might say it drove me crazy.

This is one of the best teacher/student romances I have read. It’s packed with emotion, genuine connection and heat that might just scorch your kindle. Beautiful tie in with Beauty and the Beast. LOVED it!

That cliffhanger ending had me shouting NOOOOOO so loud I woke my hubs. Damn you Skye Warren. Damn you!! Ggggrrrr
