Review: The Naughty Princess Club 2: In Bed With The Beast
In Bed with the Beast by Tara Sivec is the second book in her funny and sexy Naughty Princess Club Series. A modern day retelling of the Beauty and the Beast theme.
Belle is a sheltered woman who is surprised when her over protective father kicks her out of her house. Even more surprising is when surly bouncer, Vincent, is the one to come to her rescue. Now that she is no longer under the protective thumb of her father she is ready to spread her wings and fly, but when Vincent also tries to control her she learns that she has a backbone and is ready to use it.
Vincent is a surly grumpy man of few words. But Belle has worked her way into his system and he can't do anything but keep her as close as possible. Things get out of control and the more he tries to take charge of the situation the worse it gets. Will he able to back off and let her be the woman she is trying to be?
Hilarious, quirky, and sexy and sweet. This naughty princess Belle has met her match in Vincent. Enjoy!
Totally wonderful fun
This is a totally wonderful modern romantic comedy version of the classic Beauty and the Beast take. Our heroine, Belle, the shy and unknowingly beautiful librarian (she has to be a book lover, of course) is set up in series of dates by besties Cindy (you guessed it, Cinderella) and Ariel (I’m not even gonna say it). Vincent, aka The Beast (of course), is not a happy guy about all of this. The story unfolds. Shocker: there is a HEA! The story may be predictable (duh) but not the wonderful romantic and giggle-ful (what, that’s not a word? It should be!) way done by Tara Sivec. I’ve never read this author’s books before I need to fix that ASAP (Cindarella and The Little Mermaid, anyone?). But for the fact that I’m literally dictating this review to my husband from my hospital bed I could go on and on with praises - the book definitely deserves it. Since I can’t do that I will simply note that the book is most definitely one to read, it is easy to highly recommend.
Cute concept but fell a bit flat
This is my first book by this author. The story is a very light humorous read with a spin on Belle and the Beast. It's a 2nd in a series but is a standalone......which is how I read it. I don't think you miss anything by not reading Cindy's book. At times there were parts where it was so ridiculous, it was funny but for the most part I just couldn't get into the humor because it was so far fetched. I think this author is known for this kind of humor but it's just not my cup of tea. Belle is a nerdy librarian who is trying to keep her precious library open. Beast/Vincent is a bouncer with a past. There is a lot of interaction with her friends Cindy and Ariel, who I found to be extremely annoying. In fact I dont want to read about Ariel because of her personality in this a book. I found Beast a bit lacking in personality and the chemistry between the 2 was lacking. Also I was annoyed with how Belle reacted to what Beast was hiding....she was very wishy washy. The book was fine if you're in the mood for a funny and very light-hearted read.
