{Review} Beast: Part IV (Beast #4)

Beast, Part IV (Beast, #4)Beast, Part IV by Ella James

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Awww Beast has finally come to an end. I didn’t want it to end, but I had to find out what happened and now I have.

The action scenes and the suspense was right up there. I was always wondering what was going to happening to Beast and Belle and who would be after them. Some of the sex, WOW; very hot stuff not for the faint hearted at all.

However I still felt the end was a little rushed and could have been a bit more fleshed out for my taste.

Overall an enjoyable serial. Well worth the read if you like erotic fairy tales.

{Review} Beast: Part III (Beast #3)

Beast Part 3: An Erotic Fairy TaleBeast Part 3: An Erotic Fairy Tale by Ella James

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m so glad I waited til part 4 was released before I started reading this, or else I don’t know what I would have done. OMG! Yes I want more already.

Beast: part III is were all the action starts to happen, not that there hasn’t been action before. But look out it is really happening now. People and secrets get revealed and new players are gaming into the game, just to mix it all up.

Everybody loves a bit of drama and I just couldn’t put this down. Totally a one-sit-read for me. It will be on to the next part quick-smart for me.

{Review} Beast: Part 2 (Beast #2)

Beast, Part II (Beast, #2)Beast, Part II by Ella James

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Couldn’t wait to read this after finishing the first part. So I just had to read it straight away.

Part 2 is a lot darker than the first part, and I think I like it more because of that reason. It seemed more grown-up and a bit more developed than the first part.

There are some more characters introduced in this part of the story. Everyone seems to have a role but they only wear it as a mask really. How they are and what they do seem to be two different things in this story. The is a lot of mystery sounding some of the characters and plot points. But I good like a good mystery. The ending is killing me about now (read for yourself to read out more)

The attraction and intensity between Beast and Belle is H.O.T. And so of the sex scenes are just… well lets say they are not for the faint hearted.

I need part 3 like now, like yesterday now. I need to know whats going to happen to my favourite Beast.

{Review} Beast: Part 1 (Beast #1)

Beast, Part I (Beast, #1)Beast, Part I by Ella James

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have always loved the Disney version of Beauty and the Beast. So why not find an adult version to love too, right? I had a few friends talking about this story and when I was it was free on Amazon I thought I would give it a go.

I was not disappointed at all. This story comes across as more a prequel to the actual story. It could be just me, but that was the feel I was getting. But you will have to read this one before the second one, as i’m sure something will be missing in the story line if you skip parts.

There was a great story line and plot and the characters were introduced and fleshed out nicely.

However it wasn’t til the end that the story really got going for me. Then next thing I know, it’s the end and I have to read the next one already.
