    • I basically never write reviews. Something special has to happen for me to write a review. In this case, something especially terrible. Readers, know that this review is going to be more of a rant than a review, for there is a lot to rant about this book. I'm going to start by saying that Beauty and the Beast is my favorite fairy tale. I've read countless retellings with so many twists, so I'm not adverse to artistic license, but do you know what they all had in common? The Beast became a good p [...]


    • 3.5/5.0Sarah Winter's retelling of the classic fairy tale is not much different than the original.Read full review in the 2016 July/August issue of InD'tale Magazine.


    • For anybody that knows me well they know that Beauty and the Beast is my favorite story of all time. Compared to any other fandoms I enjoy this one I come back to again and again. Of course it may have something to do with the fact that my favorite movie is Disney's Beauty and the Beast and I fell in love with it the first time I saw it as a child. Of course since then I have read the original tale and I happen to love that one as well. Probably even more so than the Disney version.I love how th [...]


    • Jolie's BeastThis was a hard read for me, by chapter nine I was ready to give up and just not finish it. To say this is a "slow burn romance" would be a understatement, it was more like a snail's pace. I also found it hard to get past the "Disney" elements embedded in it. In the "author's notes" it all falls into place. It makes sense. And to me this would have been greatly insightful to have known the author's inspiration for the story beforehand, it would have kept me from constantly trying to [...]


    • This was a bit of a mash-up of Disney’s version and the original tales made into one cohesive story and you really have to give credit to the author for making all of that work.I probably should have enjoyed it more because she did include all the things that you know and love. What held me back a little, was some of the characterizations. A little rounding out would have improved my connection to them and also helped with some of the inconsistencies- especially with the sister, which to be fa [...]


    • I love Beauty and the Beast retellings, I read them all the time. I found this story to be great with few flaws. The fathers part seemed to be a bit shaky and the author failed to tell what happened to each character in the end, I can't stand that! Overall the novel was great, Leo is a true beast in the beginning, at one point he flips the dinner table in response to his lovely prisoners comment. I love that because some authors make the Beast a total sweetheart's called "Beast" for a reason lol [...]


    • This book is more a 2.5 star read.The book was quick and easy to read. It had some enjoyable moments. I liked that in this version the main characters did not immediately find themselves in an easy relationship. The author made them work at it and had real problems up even toward the end. Even if their courtship was a mere three weeks long.The major problem I had with this book was that the writing felt rushed and sloppy in a way.


    • This book took a little time to get into it at first but once I found my place, I found it to be an enjoyable read. The Characters were portrayed in a good way and gave a different outlook on the stress of family bonds and the Trials that Love takes until you find the one no matter their appearance. It also reminds us That a Home is were you make it and not Where you have spent most f your life. A good read That I give 4 Stars.


    • GoodClean and sweet, but I never really felt the connection between the characters until later. It was original with a few similarities between this, the original story, and Disney. I wanted more of a conclusion to wrap up the end, but we ended up with more of a "the story continues" vibe.


    • My favorite!For whatever reason, I can't get enough of Beauty and the Beast stories and this is my favorite so far. I was drawn in from the beginning and fell in love with the characters jolie and Leo. I only hate that the story had to end.


    • I loved this book!!! You can't go wrong with a retelling of beauty and the beast's one of my most favorite stories! Can't wait to read more of Sarah's stuff.




    • Didn't finish. Great premise- and I love me some Beauty and the beast retelling, but was poorly written with a disjointed plot and underdeveloped characters.




    • Solid re-telling w/ good characterizations. Would have been 4 stars except the passive construction irked me. Sorry.
