Ellie Stevens has been her father’s keeper for the majority of her life. So, when he’s taken away by a small group of thugs, hell bent on taking his life in exchange for his debt, she runs straight into the beast’s lair.
Ashland Titon isn’t a man of mercy. If you owe, you pay, end of story. But when Ellie charges into his life with her demands and her sweet surrender, he might just give a second chance.
But there’s more at play for Ash and Ellie than a simple debt owed. There are secret pasts and forbidden rooms to keep concealed. Can they both find the future they want when the past threatens the present, and the forbidden becomes the desired?
There is something that I just can’t help but love when we get some of our favorite fairytales turned into erotic new adult versions. Beast is, if you didn’t guess based off of Beauty and The Beast which is my all-time favorite fairytale. I also loved dark romances and putting the two together just made my dark little book whore heart so happy. This is a dark romances with BDSM themes so if that isn’t something you enjoy then you may want to skip this one, but if it is then grab Beast.
Ash should have been called ass for the majority of the story but slowly you see what’s behind that tough exterior, he may have taken Ellie as a means to repay a debt but that’s not the only reason. There is something about his beauty that he just wants for himself. Ellie, she at times would fight Ash and others she knew when to not. I do wish maybe that she would have shown a little more backbone but at the same time she soothed Ash’s beastly ways so it worked. I am curious about the secondary characters we are introduced to, I hope that we are going to get books from them as well.
I had never read a book by Measha Stone before Beast but I can guarantee I will be reading more now. The way Beast played out was well done and while you can see aspects of the original fairytale, it’s still unique and kept my attention from the beginning until the end.
