Evie Davis is a new to me author who created an enjoyable read. I was skeptical when I began this book because I couldn’t see how the Beast, a MMA fighter, could ever fall for Beauregard, nerdy book worm. I was wrong big time in this! I was surprised and a total sucker for these two.
I was immediately drawn into this story. Adam is a MMA fighter with quite the reputation in the ring. His reputation has expanded to outside the ring as well and is known to be a little surly. I liked his pe ...more
So, you can bet this is a fun twist on Beauty and the Beast. There aren’t any jealous lovers, or (currently) dying family members, but there is a bit of drama that pulls Bo away from Adam just as they have finally begun to acknowledge their growing love. At times, Bo feels he must choose between loving Adam and caring for his sister, but the situation isn’t as dire as all that, as he eventually gets schooled. During the months they spend together, Adam demonstrat ...more
Adam as the Beast is more of a big teddy bear IMHO but he's a heavyweight UFC champion. So he's got the cred to back the Beast title and think of that beastly body as more action-hero. When he meets Beauregard "Bo" who is his LIVE-IN assistant, things just get hotter.
This is a sweet story and a sexy M/M romance with a lot of...anticipation. (See what I did there? Because that was the feeling the whole way through.) And it has t ...more

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 ...more
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 ...more
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!!
Beau, a PA, falls for his new boss, Adam, aka "The Beast. Beau's a selfless man, whose every move is driven by the need to help his sister. Lonely and miserable, together these two are able to overcome their problems.
The dichotomy of the Beast's personality, versus the real man behind the persona, Adam, is wonderfully done. Beauregard's an ass to the world, but he's actually a gentle giant. The reader is fully able to see the d ...more
Adam was so amusing; I never knew what he was going to do next. His true self was so different from "the Beast" it made me sad to know he had to hide who be truly was.
Bo was adorable; he was very much like myself in several ways that at times it was like reading about things that I went through.

That day finally came, and now after finishing this novel I can proudly say with utmost certainty:
For anyone circling this book, I can assure you that what you've got in your sights is a lovely M/M fairy tale of two memorable characters who ...more
This book's retelling of Beauty and the Beast was a delight to read from start to finish. I literally couldn't put it down. The characters were well constructed, lovable and flawed in their own ways. As far as romance goes, this is a highlight of my reading year.
The writing style was nice and fluent and the characters were very likeable.
The only thing missing for me was drama and/or conflict, because that means more heat building up to the two MC’s finally getting together.
I really liked both characters. I loved the singing and the creative non-swearing, in particular.

First off, Beauregard and the Beast is a gender bending Beauty and the Beast retelling which basically has me all in just based solely on the concept. Ms. Drae did NOT disappoint in pulling details from the original story, most importantly the library. I ...more
