Lita’s Book Review: 5 STARS
Beast (Beast and Beauty #1) by Clarissa Wild is a dark and demented story loosely based on the fairytale Beauty and The Beast. Aurora finds herself hiding while her house is under attack. When it looks like her father is about to be killed she intervenes. Saving herself results in her father escaping and her being captured. Beast was sold into a life no person should have to endure. Caged like a dog and groomed to be a killer. When beast fails his mission he brings back his mark”s daughter. Now Aurora and Beast are living in his cage. At times this was a tough read for me. My heart went out to both Beast and Aurora. I can’t wait to read book 2. Definitely a 5 star read for me. The interaction between Beast and Aurora was everything. What started out as Aurora being scared to death turned into something sweet and tender. And when secrets and truths were revealed I really was excited for the next book. I want to see where Beast and Aurora go from here. Most importantly I want to know if the people who have held Beast get what they truly deserve. Love Beast and hope he gets his happily ever after. There is more to know about both Aurora and Beast. So happy there isn’t much time till book 2 is released. Yes!!!
Beast by Clarissa Wild
Tanya’s rating: 5 of 5 stars
Beast is the first book in the Beast & Beauty Series. If you haven’t guessed yet this is a Beauty and the Beast retelling. Beast and Aurora Blom’s story.
This is a dark romance with all the triggers someone might have! Get ready you have been warned!
I read this book in one go and I have a love/dislike thing going on. Beast is treated like an animal. He is a trained killer. Aurora, is an innocent and has been offered to Beast.
As far as my love for this book, it captivated me! I wasn’t able to stop reading but then I felt like I might be heading into a train wreck, it turned out to only be a cliffhanger.
I disliked this book for the way that Beast was treated. Not for the way the book was written! I was kept enthralled in the happenings of this story.
I really need the next book, Beauty!!! And I need it now! 5 STARS

The thought of sinking my cock into her velvety pussy makes me salivate as much as licking her did.
But first, I need to make sure she understands.
So I crawl on top of her and press my lips to hers. Tasting her mouth is the icing on top of the cake. Kissing her is as enticing as I remember it being, and my cock twitches from the sheer amount of lust coursing through my veins.
I can’t get enough of her.
Until her eyes land on me.
They widen, and she violently jerks away from my lips. She crawls sideways to get out of my hands, shoving down her dress like an angry little bug skittering away in the darkness.
Running away like she has regrets.
“That …” she mutters from her little corner far away from me. “Was not supposed to happen.”
My brow rises as I slowly come to a stand. “Then what was supposed to happen?”
She looks up at me in awe as my towel drops to the floor, her eyes sliding down my body to take it all in. But they stop the second they reach my rock-hard dick. And for a single second, her tongue darts out to wet her lips, only to disappear the next second, as if nothing ever happened.
“Oh God,” she says, blocking her own eyes with her hands. “Please put that towel back on.”
She seems on edge. “It’s inappropriate.”
I tilt my head, amused by this conversation. “Why?”
“I-I don’t know!” she yelps. “Just do something.”
“I … I … not that,” she murmurs, still peeking at my body through her fingers.
A smirk forms on my lips. “Not what?”
I know she felt it.
I could taste her cum.
Her entire face turns red as a beet. “I thought you were going to eat me.”
I wipe my mouth and lick up the remaining juices. “I did.”
“Wha-What?” she mutters, her hand slowly lowering as though she can’t believe her own ears. She finally realizes what I said, and her face only grows redder. “Oh no. No, that was—”
“Delicious,” I reply, my cock oozing pre-cum just from the memory alone.
