roses are red

by Ashley Magruder

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review... Mr. Beast owns Beauty is a book from the modern fairy tail of beauty and the Beast... But enjoyed this retelling of the novel... It was quite different from the first Beauty and the Beast... This one he bunches of roses out in the courtyard that was his prized possessions... He would not let no one and I mean no one near them... Bella's father happened upon the castle after he lost all his ships so Rachel made him a feast in order to feed him so he can get back on his way and the Beast opened up his coffers to fill his pockets with so he wouldn't go home empty-handed to his beautiful family and daughters... But when he was leaving that's when tragedy struck the merchant was going to take his knife and cut off one of the Exquisite roses from the Beast prized possessions... The Beast grew deeply mad at the merchant and was going to kill him but instead asked him what the rose was for and he said the roads was for my daughter because my other daughters asked for pretty things but my other daughter she only asks for simple things like roses and books... And I cannot help but not oblige her... Well that is how the bargain was struck the rose for the daughter the rose was the bride price... Now I pretty much told you the beginning of the book so I'm going to leave the rest to your imagination because you need to be able to guess and read the book yourself to fill in the rest of the blanks about what happened and trust me there is a lot that and read the book yourself to fill in the rest of the blanks about what happened and trust me there is a lot that happened... and some of it is quite hot in fact... I hope you enjoy reading it...

mr beast owns beauty

by Anonymous

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. This was a darker retelling of the classic fairy tale. Mr. Beast was a prince who was cursed because his father chose his mother over another woman. The other woman cursed him and the curse gave him a body that was half man and half lion. Because of this, Mr. Beast was a recluse who shut almost everyone off from contact with him, causing him to be very lonely. One night a man came to the castle asking for help because he lost everything and Mr. Beast gave him food and some gems. When the man was leaving, Mr. Beast caught him stealing a rose from Mr. Beast's prized rose garden. To spare his live, the man offered his youngest daughter Belle to the beast. When Belle arrived, Mr. Beast tried to have his staff give her every comfort, but he didn't want to scare her so he hid in shadows. Mr. Beast thought Belle was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen and wanted her to love him. Belle told his she could never love him, so he tried to give her everything in hopes of changing her mind. I enjoyed this story, it was a more grown up version, but still showed that beauty is from within. Good one.

Adult Fairy Tale

by Esther A

I really enjoyed this modern day, adult fairy tale based off of Beauty and the Beast. It is a well written and developed storyline with great characters, Rginald/Mr. Beast and Belle, who really evolve and develop throughout the story. It's a grown up version of a fairy tale that is sexy and steamy. Looking forward to more from this author.

Mr. Beast, please!!

by SexyBeast618

This is a darker adult fairy tale of Beauty and the beast!!

Reginald is a prince that is cursed due to his father picked his mother over another. The curse would last until death or true love was found. He withdrew and became a recluse to all the land....until the day a wary traveller happened on the castle. He gave the man warmth and wealth, but when the man took one of Mr. Beast 's roses...the man went to far. Mr. Beast demanded the man repay him with his youngest daughter. So he waited for his Belle to appear at his castle to repay her father's debt.

Belle finds herself in this castle with her master that she finds scary and interesting. She feels drawn to him like no other before him. But his rough exterior and manners, have her questioning her sanity and ability to think clearly. However, on a trip home, her father helps her realize she is in love with Mr. Beast and wants to be his wife at once.

Will their love break the curse? Will Belle ever get to have Mr. Beasts claws/paws claim her like in her thoughts and dreams? With Mr. Beast be happy with Belle?

This book is a wonderful version of the classic, much darker and worth the read. It goes through all emotions with a HEA. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Mr Beast & His Beauty

by MJM2003

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. If you love fairy tales this is the book for you. This is a much darker version of Beauty and the Beast than the Disney version I took my two little girls to see at the cinema this year so be warned. Mr Beast was turned into a half man/half lion when he was in his teens and, in many ways, he still acts like a petulant teenager at times. He was cursed because his father chose his mother to be his wife and the rejected woman placed this curse, so that he would forever remain a Beast until he could find someone who would genuinely love and marry him. Belle's Dad , just like the Disney version, falls foul of Mr Beast by taking a rose for Belle after he had received gracious hospitality from Mr Beast. Belle's Dad offered Mr Beast her in recompense and she dutifully followed her Dad's promise. Mr Beast stays in the shadows so as to not frighten her and gives her everything she asks for [I was puzzled by this as he had money to give her dad in abundance but his staff had to sell honey to make ends meet??]. This is where you now have to read this steamy version of Beauty and The Beast as I'm not giving any spoilers! I can honestly say that I am more than happy that I spent the time reading this version and I do definitely recommend it to anyone liking fairy tales but also some steamy scenes with passion, character development and a HEA. Well written by Q Zayne who is an author that if you haven't read before, this should encourage you to want to read more by Q

Fun steamy re-telling of a classic fairtytale. Yes, he's aggressive in his courtship but he's the "Beast" and to be expected. I enjoyed this story.

Loved it!

by Mom2three

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. The blurb says "inspired by one of the earliest versions", and that is the best description I can give. Reading it reminded me of the book of Grimm Fairy Tales I had as a kid. I have read quite a few re-tellings of Beauty and the Beast, but nothing like this. This story is a dark, sexy, mesmerizing tale, and I loved every second of it. The story is beautifully told, with glimpses into the characters past and rich in detail. I couldn't put it down.

Another winner from Q. Zayne!

by Anonymous

This book is yet another one of Quin Zayne's erotic adult books that you'll enjoy if you are into erotica or erotic romances. This one is geared for new/young adults and so it's a little tamer than most. If you like dark fairy tales and shifter romances you'll love this one. I highly recommend it since it has a HEA with no cliffhanger!

I received an advance reader copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Based on the original with added sensuality

by Che

The whole story is basically the one that was based on the original fairy tale, added with sensuality and steam. Not much was changed - it was made into adult story by the author by infusing some adult scenes into it.

You will love reading this book as much as I have. Strong characters and great story line. You so won't be displeased. Belle is the only one who can save his tortured heart. Her virginal love for the beast to set him free.

He is cursed and lonely in his castle until she arrived and lights up his life.

by Rebecca Grove

Reginald was a prince who was cursed by a fairy angry at his parents. One day when he was a child, his curse turned him into a beast with a mostly lion's head, mane, paws and a tail. Sometimes the beast inside got too much and the beast took over and went hunting so he was chained up in the stables. Over time a servant helped him gain control and he returned to the palace. His mother left him ashamed to look at her son and his father isolated himself. All the company the prince had was a few servants. His fairy godmother left him some magical rose bushes that bloomed all year round to brighten his life. Still the prince was lonely and had given up hope.
Then a poor businessman down on his luck stumbled to the enchanted castle. Feeling pity, Mr. Beast as the prince had become known by left out some jewels for him to take. However when the man cut and took one of his magical roses the beast grew angry. The father said the rose weas for his daughter and was the only present she asked. Beast decides he needs the beautiful kind daughter to be a light in his life so he demands the man send her to him or the beast would destroy his family.
So Belle comes to the dark castle. She knows the beast can do whatever he wants to her and her Nanny had filled her head with fanciful tales. She is scared by the rough beast but he does his best to make her happy in his palace. The beast keeps asking her if she loves him and will marry him but she keeps saying no. At night she is haunted by dreams of a sad prince and the happy life she might have. Belle is unsure if she could ever love a beast. Mr. beast does everything he can to make her happy and his love for her changes him from feeling helpless to determined to be a better man and prince.
This is a great retelling of Beauty and the Beast except in this story thew prince was nice from the beginning. I voluntarily received a copy of this story and this is my honest review.

Coming of Age

by S Lange

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

With the way the author alluded to how they were going to make this book different from the old tale I expected a lot more. True this is not the Disney version with singing cups, or cute ottomans this one had lots of sexual innuendo and a lot more lusty thoughts than we are used to. Thankfully there was no Gaston or angry mobs with pitchforks in this rendition.

The story was basically the same tale we are all familiar with throw in some bawdy language, some voyeuristic behavior and the final copulation while properly wedded then bedded scenario and you have this story.

I actually look at this story more as a coming of age story for Mr. Beast/Reginald. He was changed while he was a teenager, still full of demanding ways and petulant temper tantrums. While he tried to bully Belle into marrying him, she stood firm in her refusal of him. He started to grow up and realized that putting someone else’s needs before his was the only way to win that persons heart.

There were a few puzzling things about the story mainly with his fortune. He gave Belle’s father enough money to purchase two ships to replace the ones he had lost and also enough to provide dowries for his other two daughters. The servants in the castle had to sell honey to make ends meet. That must be some amazing honey to be able to sustain a household. Then he had loads of treasure but it wouldn’t be enough to have more than one lavish party. Then he buys Belle a boat at the end. So does he have money or not? He’s a prince/king they usually get rents from those living in the kingdom don’t they?

With the setup from the author I expected something unexpected and spectacular what was delivered was an old tale with some added in sexy bits.

Not quite what I expected

by Frikantela

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

A nice retelling of the original tale, with lots of suspence and dark innuendos, but I expected more fron an adult version of the story.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed reading it. The plot kept me reading page after page until it was finished.
