Every once and a while you come across a debut author and you ask yourself, “How is this their FIRST book?” Ms. Drae’s writing is flawless and her reboot of Beauty and the Beast is a true, sweet pleasure for the romantics among us. This was a great case of physical opposites attracting and realizing they had more in common than initially perceived. Bo and Adam’s story is realistically weaved through the pages while respecting the confines of a retelling. It was an easy, fun read with bits of ste ...more

It’s not often that I go out on a limb and try new authors these days. It’s not that I don’t want to, it’s simply a time management deal. However, when this crossed my path something about it called to me. Could be my long love for my favorite Disney movie or maybe it was the MMA fighting that caught my attention? Whatever the reason, I’m glad. Drae’s voice was fresh and the characters clear and endearing. The burn was slow but steady. And despite one frustrating scene near the end, I was a happ ...more

I loved this retelling. It was the perfect balance of staying true to the original while making it completely fresh. The writing was perfect and the characters both sweethearts. Super fun read!

I just devoured BEAUREGARD AND THE BEAST in a single sitting and it was adorably sweet and like a lovable MMA fighter, made me all gooey inside! Bo and Adam were definitely a fairy tale couple and their affection was inherent in every aspect of their romance.
Grumbly Adam might need someone to organize his life, but the last thing he (thinks he) wants is a relationship. Until adorkable Bo insists *he's* the one not looking for love. The slow burn develops as a friendship until they have to admit

What an adorable, sexy, squeal-worthy book. Their chemistry was so perfect, and Adam was such a lovable goofball at his core, even though he had the “Beast” persona to contend with.

Ms. Drae has such a fun, relatable way of writing, too, that just sucks you right in and keeps you in the story.

I loved the growth both characters went through as well, and Lulu is such a crack-up!

All-in-all I’m just thrilled I got to read it, and can’t wait to read more!!

I've been dying to read this book ever since Evie started posting snippets of it on Twitter while it was still a WIP. Bo and Adam are such delightful characters, and their romance had me swooning from the get-go--long before they even realized they were totally in love. I enjoy a good slow burn, especially when it's topped with some delightful sweet. This book gave me all the best tingles in all the best places. I was rooting for their relationship the whole time, and when the black moment hit, ...more

Adam is the Beast, a mixed-martial-arts champion who has never let anyone close to him: his career’s always come first. But he isn’t a youngster any more, and his ring persona has very little to do with who he really is.
One thing Adam truly is, however, is disorganized, which is why he needs a personal assistant. Enter Beauregard, a bookish guy with a sister in college to support. He’s also almost irresistibly cute. The attraction between them is immediate, but inappropriate: Adam is Beau’s emp

The cover grabbed me and the slow-burn between Bo and Adam kept me reading.
LOVED this debut, sweet m/m romance. More, please!

I was surprised by this book. Not because it was such a great read but because it was such a sweet read as well. When you think of an MMA fighter, you automatically think of gruff and moody, or at least I do. But not in this book. Adam, aka Beast, isthis sweet teddy bear of a man instead of the Beast everyone believes him to be because of his MMA career. This book was truly a good read. I enjoyed it and I really enjoyed the characters in it. Definitely a book I recommend for others to read becau ...more

Adam Littrell is an MMA fighter who has earned the nickname The Beast and he's known for being surly and never so much as even smiling for his fans.  Bo Wilkins is his new live-in personal assistant.

I really liked both characters.  I loved the singing and the creative non-swearing, in particular.

As he bent to pick up the throw pillows they'd tossed off the couch, he belted out the opening lyrics of "Hot Patootie, Bless My Soul" from Rocky Horror.  Complete with Meat Loaf's high-pitched hoot at t
