Loving the Beast is a modern day, erotic version of the childhood fairytale, Beauty and the Beast. A gentle reminder to everyone that looks don't make or break a person. The way Simone intertwined the fairytale with the steamy scenes between Gwendolyn and Xavier keeps a reader interested in the story.

Gwendolyn approaches her childhood friend, Xavier at a party, seeking a grant to keep the community center they met at open. Xavier, who has always harbored feelings for Gwen, takes advantage of her demise and tells her that he will give her the money, in exchange for her spending 7 days with him, as his lover. Gwen, who has harbored the same feelings for Xavier despite being engaged to his brother, takes the opportunity.

What comes of Gwen and Xavier makes you love them and hate them at the same time, it makes you wonder what is going to come of them, as well. The story is engaging and endearing, everything a reader could want in a story with the addition of the intensely hot scenes between Xavier and Gwen. Loving the Beast is a well written novella, a great bedtime story for adults to enjoy.
