Belle (Beauty) and The Beast


Favorite Quote: “I’m going to make sure your death is slow and painful, satisfying my blood lust and delivering your heart in my palm to my female.”

Signed, sealed, and delivered! I love a man who promises, then delivers exactly what he promises.

This was my first Beauty and the Beast retelling story, and boy, am I glad it did not disappoint. I’ve read the classic; all I can say is – screw the whole Beast turns back to human. Give me Beast in his truest, primal form – gnarly and ghastly, feline and feral – he really lives up to his name, and I’m here for it! He knows he’s a monster, and he owns it 100%. Plus, he knows what he wants, and he goes for it.

And Belle – sweet, sweet Belle. Like Beast, she lives up to her name as well – soft and docile, yet stubborn, fiercely loyal with a mind of her own. She sure knows how to provoke the Beast in order to get what she wants. The feels, the kinks, the steam, and all the spice!!!!!!

My only complaint is I wish it were longer!


Ms. Snow has a list of CW/TW on her site; check those before diving into this book.


I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This is the first book in the Monsters and Beauties series. Read my review for Book 2: The Hunter here.


Just in case, here are the CW/TW for The Beast: A Monster Romance:

Hunter and prey / Chase play / Primal / Praise / Biting and marking / Blood play / CNC / Knotting / Cum play / Ass play / Monster and human / Breeding / Stalking / Gore / Violence / Murder on page / Forced marriage (of heroine to the beast) / Monster f*cking (like literally)
