A hot sexy spin on Beauty and the Beast! My favorite fairy tale.
But it was more... A forbidden romance! Forbidden on multiple levels he was her boss, then her professor. Oh and an age difference! It was fascinating to watch it play out.
Blake **sigh** Broken men always grab my heart, hoping love will heal them, fix them. This one well I thought it would until a meddling ex-bi#@h comes into the picture.

A poignant tale of love and self-worth. Beautiful writing, soft as a caress.

I couldn't help myself when I heard this story had been revised to be republished. I had read it years ago, loved it so much it still lingered on my mind. After all, it was my first book by this author and I never looked back, hooked on her mesmerising words ever since.

This modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast delves deeper than skin into ugliness and beyond to what the heart hides. Al the fears, the sense of not be

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!

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

Beauty and the Professor by Skye Warren is the first book in her Modern Fairy Tale Duet. A sexy, steamy modern re-telling of Beauty and the Beast.

Erin is a grad student on scholarship and loans and working her way through the expenses by cleaning in her free time. Her favorite job, by far, is her twice a week visit to the reclusive Blake Morris. A wounded vet and one-time professor, he was badly burned in his last tour and has made himself a recluse as a result. But when Erin sees Blake she s

This story was among the first of Skye’s that I ever read, so many years ago now, when I first discovered her. So, while these characters were not completely new to me, I had managed to forget most of the feelings in the years between readings.
I love age gaps. I don’t know why, but I really do. Something about the promise of delicious lessons from someone much older just does it for me. And when you add the employer-turned-professor component of Blake and Erin’s relationship, it takes that alre

Beauty and the Professor by Skye Warren is a unique and different spin on a classic fairy tale. I was intrigued when I began reading and craved the last page to see how everything would turn out for the characters, but be prepared to be stunned and thrown for a complete loop. The ending is brutal.

Erin's character is a kind soul and I loved that no matter what Blake looked like, she treated him the same way she would any other human being. She's a very strong young lady and I loved her drive. She

He used to be a professor at Tanglewood University before war ravaged his body, and left him virtually a recluse who rarely ventured out.

She answered his ad and became his maid twice a week, in order to remain a student and stay afloat financially.

Strictly employer, and employee until something once seen, never forgotten changes their whole relationship.

What a fantastically intense and sensual read!

Page after page of lust, and devotion. Desire and hunger. Sizzling sexual encounters. Oh so delic

A sexy taboo romance from the first page with thick angst, Beuty and The Professor brings you a modern story fairy tale of Beuty and The Beast.

A wounded veteran and a poor young college girl, you will think the normal taboo romance between the older man and younger woman. But if you know Skye Warren's writing, you know you in it to get more.

Heavy on the angst part.
Lots of steamy scenes... Which I don't mind one bit😂
A girl with heart so strong, you can't help falling in love with her.

Beauty and the Professor is Book 1 in Skye Warren’s Modern Fairy Tale duet and I can not wait to find out what happens next. This author continually writes a story that I can get lost in and this book is no exception...I mean who doesn’t love a forbidden romance?

What’s starts out as an age gap turns into a professor/student romance with plenty of rugs at your heartstrings. By the end you will be filled with hope and then we get left with the cliffy...

I need more of Blake and Erin in my life and
Peggy Lee (Reading Keeps Me Sane)
Beauty and the Professor is book one in this modern fairy tale duet. It's a modern day forbidden romance. The story is trope filled, forbidden love, professor/student, billionaire, maid, significant age difference scars from the past and fairy tale. The tropes are blended well throughout the story. However, I have two contentions, there was a lot of sex and the cliffhanger threw me for a loop. It created a disjointed transition to the next book. I'm not sure if was for shock value but it left me ...more

I just finished Beauty and The Professor and I just about threw my kindle across the room. I think it took a full minute to get my brain to fully function again after the last chapter.

I enjoy Skye Warren’s books. This one is no exception. Without giving any spoilers, I will say, I want to throat punch Blake Morris. Now, after that declaration, I must also say that I loved Blake and Erin’s characters. This story was very HOT and also gets you in the feels.

Erin cleans Blake’s house for him. She has a crush on him. He is a scarred, yet sexy older man. When she walks in on him in a compromising position they are both horrified yet intrigued.

A sexy, dark romance. Blake is recovering from his time in the service. With visible and the not so visible scars he feels unlovable. Erin sees the strength of his character. The book is part one and ends at the perfect stopping point. Wonderfully written and beautifully dark.

A steamy and modern tale of The Beauty and the Beast. Blake is an ex-soldier trying to get his life back together after being injured in the war. Erin is the college student who cleans his house to pay for her expenses. They faced many obstacles in trying to be together. This older man/younger woman, professor/student story was fast paced. It was good reading and I really enjoyed it. The book does end in a cliffhanger.

Review copy was received for a honest opinion.

First off, I need the rest of Blake & Erin’s story! Second, Skye Warren did an amazing job on this modern retelling of Beauty & The Beast!

I was consumed by Blake & Erin and their journey! I loved that there were some twists & turns that kept me flipping the pages for more!

I’m really glad that the second book is coming out soon!

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!

A modern tale of Beauty and the Beast wrapped up as a hot forbidden romance. This story had everything you could want when it comes to a forbidden romance. Of course, it had the age gape but Erin and Blake met while she cleaned his house, he was her employer and he eventually became her professor.

Blake was injured in Iraq by an IED and his life changed. His fiancé left him, he stopped teaching and spent all his time in his home, away from the public eye. Erin is a student, who has worked hard i

This is a deep, dark, take on the classic story. Blake’s beast is shackled by scars, inside and out, and he is living, no existing, in pain, when Erin comes along. From the first scene, the attraction, the heat, between them is palpable. But it exists in the darkness that is his world. She is sunshine and light, and as much as the world has tried to keep her in the dark, she refuses to give in. Blake isn’t dark to her, he is everything she has wanted. But the world is against them, but they both ...more

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
