Review: Beau and the Beast by Kay Simone

Beau and the Beast - Kay Simone








Who doesn't like a retelling of the fairytale Beauty and the Beast?




I liked discovering the simularaties. And they were plenty and with a nice twist. I enjoyed the first half enormously and it was heading the 5 stars...

Although I loved the idea that we must be able to love who we want, the Beastly sex was kinda making me uncomfortable sometimes.. Beau gulping down Wolfram's release didn't really do it for me.

But the sweet moments between them were still there;

That animal part of him wanted to give Beau whatever he wanted and more. It tired of Wolfram being submissive like this—wanted to throw Beau to the bed, to climb on top of him and mark him up before doing exactly what he wanted: claiming him, fucking him, coming inside of him so that anyone who came after Wolfram would be able to smell him on Beau. He wanted to give every possible competitor the clear message that Beau belonged to him.

And then at the end when we know the curse is obviously resolved, the story takes a HUGE twist. One I didn't expect at all and didn't like.

So overall a nice retelling but I could've really lived without the episode. It kinda ruined it for me.
