They call him The Beast for good reason. Now this billionaire boss wants his beautiful--and off-limits--assistant...

Griffin: They call me The Beast. Some people think I’m a bully. I’m not here to make friends. I ruthlessly clawed my way to the top of the real estate market in NYC. No friends needed.

Griffin has lately started noticing his assistant, Bellamy, for the beauty she is, and he's quite unhappy about it. He knows better than to set himself up for a sexual harassment suit by pursuing her. But when Bellamy is just as attracted to him as he is to her...well you can imagine what happens. Can this beast be tamed by his beauty?

Well, yes, eventually, but not without Griffin's fair share of painful behavior, behavior the strong, sassy Bellamy doesn't put up with. Griffin's practical

This was my first Ava Ryan read and ARC, and I absolutely enjoyed it! Since this was my first book from her, I didn't know what to expect... whether I'll jive with her thought process or with the characters.

Suffice to say that I love Griffin and Bellamy! Their dynamic, their banter, chemistry... it was a page turner. I love that both characters are family-centric and that both are brace enough to overcome their respective apprehensions.

It was a light and easy read and would be awesome to rea

Dear Ava Ryan,

Thank you! Thank you for carefully curating a story such as The Billionaire’s Beauty where all of my favorite elements reside. As a new to me author, you have excited me because I have a new author to add to my list of favorite authors. Your careful plotting and characterizations have pulled me into this series of emotionally-stunted billionaires, and I don’t want to leave. If you want to know all the reasons for my love of The Billionaire’s Beauty, wel

I loved Griffin and Bellamy’s story. My favorite heroines are ones who don’t put up with any shenanigans from their guys. I also love a good office romance! Just a great book!

Griffin has earned his reputation for being a demanding and difficult boss as he is used to people doing whatever he asks, whenever he wants without a second thought. The only exception to the rule is his assistant who intrigues him both personally and professionally.

Bellamy is feisty, fiery and isn’t about to just take the behavior that Griffin dishes out even if she is attracted to him. With her circumstances about to change she decides to finally have what she has always wanted but will it me

I just love retelling of fairy tales with a modern twist! Griffin is a Beast in the boardroom and his personal life. He is all growly and unapproachable. Bellamy, his executive assistant, takes no BS from him. She’s no push over and doesn’t fall apart or at his feet when he is all growly. I absolutely loved the witty banter between the characters and their chemistry sizzled. Will the sassy Beauty be able to tame the Beast?

She's a beauty right there💗💗

I love it!This story was captivating and entertaining. This is my first time reading from Ava collection. Griffin is rough around the edges. He is rich, cold,and sexy. He have been knocked out of his seat when he least expected. He finally met his match with Bellamy. He is in uncharted territory with relationships. Bellamy is the one. She is smart, amazing and beautiful. She decides to take a leap of faith. She is the best assistant! She is honest and stand up for her

This is the second book in Ava Ryan’s Fairy Tale Billionaire series, after The Billionaire's Princess. Each book in this trilogy focuses on a different brother, and events of each book happens at the same time as each other, so you can read one or all and in any order you like.

It’s a surprise to no-one that this story is based on Beauty and the Beast - or as much as it can really be, I suppose. There’s no locking people up, singing candlesticks or enchante

* I received an advance reader copy in exchange for an honest review *

Ava Ryan has done a great job with this workplace romance. Book two in the Fairy Tale Billionaires Series and so far, my favorite. From the moment I started reading I was hooked. The connection between Griffin and Bellamy was obvious from the first moment we met them.

No one walks away from me. Not a client, not a deal...I won’t let her go, either.

Normally I am not a fan of seeing the POV of the hero, but I would not have

Griffin is your standard grumpy-hot-playboy-billionaire-corporate mogul. His assistant Bellamy is gorgeous, smart, capable and the only one who can put up with Griffin's poor attitude. Griffin has been smart enough to keep his hands to himself despite his instant attraction to his assistant (he needs to avoid workplace sexual harassment lawsuits after all!) and Bellamy has been nursing a crush on her sour puss boss since she took the job a year ago, though judging by his att

The Billionaire's Beauty by Ava Ryan is the second book in her Fairy Tale Billionaires series and I adored it! I am a sucker for a fairy tale inspired story or retelling, which meant that this was completely up my alley!
Ava, you are a genius, and my emotions are all over the shop in the best possible way. I adored Griffin from his first grumpy growl, and just fell head over heels as he prowled through the pages and glowered and just had me all mushy on the inside in the best possible way!

I finished his book in one day! I have mixed feelings about it though so my review reflects that. I really enjoyed parts and I really disliked parts. This is Griffin and Bellamy’s story.

Griffin is the brooding billionaire executive who dislikes everyone and is tough to be around. He has abandonment issues so he never gets close to anyone, especially women. He gets what he needs and moves on…

This is the second standalone book in the Fairy Tale Billionaires Series.
This book follows Griffin Black and Bellamy Forrest. Bellamy is Griffin’s Executive Assistant. Griffin is known as The Beast in the office for his ruthless ways and this also spills over in to his personal life. Bellamy was super strong and sassy. It was so good to see a heroine in a book who did not fall at the bosses feet with all his demands on her. She stood

Ava Ryan is a fairly new author to me but with every book of hers I pick up I realise I need more from this very talented author. Her characters draw me in and are easy to relate to and her stories captivated from the first page to the last line, so what more can you ask for in a great read. This the second Stand-alone book in the fairy tale series and these books just keep getting better. This is Griffin Black and Bellamy Forrest’s tale and it’s a take on

I have to say that I'm really loving this series by Ava Ryan. I know I'm only 2 books in now, but her talent is so great that it didn't take much at all for me to add her to my list of go to authors. The Billionaire's Beauty is the modern day twist on Beauty and the Beast, and what a twist it was. Griffin (the Beast) is a broody cranky man who has some baggage. He's also a player as he doesn't let anyone close to him, until Bellemy came into his life. She's a brilliant girl working for Griffin a ...more

This book tells the story of Griffin and Bellamy. Griffin and his brothers are real estate moguls in NYC, and Bellamy has been Griffins assistant for a year, saving money so she can attend law school.

She has had an attraction to Griffin since she began working for him and he the same. But he looked at it as not to mix business with pleasure.

Bellamy is Griffins (aka the beasts) assistant. She has been crushing on him since the first moment she started working for him. Griffin is a complete womaniser nonetheless there is something about Bellamy that grabbed his attention. When Bellamy suggests one night together Griffin is shocked but who could resist that offer. Bellamy, on the other hand, is shocked when Griffin suggests they get to know each other on a personal level.

This is the second book in the Fairy Tale Billionaires series. Bellamy Forest has worked for Griffin Black for the past year while she has saved to go to college. She is everything an assistant should be. Efficient. A step ahead. Organized. And knowing Griffin's needs before he does.
Griffin Black is a man not afraid to go after what he wants. Although he has had plenty of women, he desires the one that could leave them broke and in legal trouble. Yet Bellamy couldn't be like all those other wome

book two was just as smashing!

I really enjoyed Griffin and Bellamy’s book as much as Damon and Carly’s! There was some similarities I guess since these guys are brothers and all they share the same trauma and I guess you can say PTSD from their upbringing…..But that doesn’t stop these determined women from worming their way into these men’s lives and carving out their HEA’s!! Bellamy was a go-getter! I really liked her from the start of this book! Chemistry was smokin hot and the world building

I love this book. It's that simple.
This book resonated with me on so many different levels.

Too many of the heroines in romance novels need the knight in shining armor to sweep them off their feet, and I love that Bellamy is willing to come off as anything other than nice in order to make sure she is being treated the way she deserves.

We need more heroines like this, who don't take shit from anyone, even the guy they love, don't back down from a fight, have the strength not to give up and the em

Beauty and The Beast is one of my all time favourite Disney films and I LOVED the cute play on the characters Bellamy - beauty and Griffin - The Beast, who Bellamy affectionately nicknames the beast.

I hadn’t read anything else in the series but it didn’t matter, it was easy to fall in love with Belle and the way she challenged Griffin at every turn. She stood up for herself and didn’t accept anything less than the way she knew she deserved to be treated. Despite his gruff demeanour it was easy t

After reading The Billionaire’s Princess, I totally wanted to see what Ava could bring with her Fairy Tale Billionaire series. Because who doesn’t like an alpha male ordering people around and eventually brought to his knees by a woman?

And that’s exactly what happens to Griffin. The second Black brother to fascinate me – and that says a lot since I really thought no one could top Damon. Griffin is ruthless, commanding and emotionless. The classical cold-blooded real estate mogul who wants succes

The Billionaire’s Beauty grabbed my attention from the first page. The chemistry between Griffin and Bellamy was so intense from the first moment we met them, so I needed more of them. I really enjoyed their banter and steamy scenes.
And needless to say that I loved Bellamy. She is so strong and independent going after what she wants.

Tale as old as time, true as it can be, Ava Ryan takes a classic and makes it her own. Her ability to orchestrate this world and make you fall in it is beautifully done. In this story you meet Griffin and Bellamy a true beast to her beauty.

It was so fun to watch her stand up to him as many have failed to do in his past. It is also heart wrenching to see the Alpha come to terms with his vulnerabilities and insecurities that he has had buried for most of his life.
