Beauty and the Beast
Beauty and the Beast: An Adult Fairytale Romance - Vivienne Savage

I did enjoy this. Nice, fairly clean romance. I would have liked it a little more had there been a little more steam. Nice set-up at the beginning, I would have liked more in the middle once Ana got to the castle. I did like the ending, it didn't feel rushed like the middle of the book felt. I did really like that Alistair truly saw Ana as his equal. While Ana was very sheltered, she was quick to stand up for herself.
This would be appropriate for older teens.

 

For Ripped Bodice Bingo, I'm using this for the Fairy Tale Retelling square.

AS OLD AS TIME by Liz Braswell
As Old as Time - Liz Braswell

A retelling of Beauty and the Beast.  It starts like the Disney movie but the ending is different.  I liked it--a lot!  The main characters are there but there are additional characters who flesh out the story and add dimensions that were not there before.  The back story is told more and the characters learn through their flaws and errors.  Thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to more in the series.  One for the keeper shelf.

Beauty of the Beast
Beauty of the Beast - Rachel L. Demeter 3 stars

Funny thing, the past. No matter how hard you try to shut it from your mind, you always hear those whispers in your skull..
It's inescapable; a true prison in every sense of the word. Almost like being chased by a predator.
The faster you run away, the more it chases you, and the more it demands you surrender.

great book and great characters
Belle: An Amish Retelling of Beauty and the Beast (An Amish Fairytale) - Sarah Price

Belle lived with her father and two sisters on their farm. Belle loves to read romances and dreams of falling in love.  Belle’s father was a dreamer and inventor but he wasn’t successful and had used all family money and had to sell their farm. Adam had bought their farm who is a local recluse. Adam is badly scarred by a terrible childhood accident. The people of the community have come to call Adam the Beast and that's basically how he acts. But he has been scarred not only physically but  emotionally as well as spiritually. The people's reaction to his physical appearance only makes it worse. So now Adam is scarred, disfigured, and silent. But Belle goes to Adam and asks to become his housekeeper so her family can still stay in the house. Adam instead offers Belle marriage and if she has a son her family can keep their farm. Belle goes into the marriage intending to do all she can to make it work no matter what. Adam’s home was filthy and Belle immediately went to cleaning their home and making good meals for them to eat. Adam has had noone to talk to in years so he is silent when around Belle even though she talked to him. Belle does believe God has called her to marry Adam.
I loved this book. I loved the plot as well as the pace. I also loved that it wasn’t an insta-love relationship instead it slowly built between Belle and Adam. I also loved the way the author used a Beauty and the Beast style when writing this. I also liked how the author showed people can live in a religious community and fall and not act in a Christian charitable way. I choked up at times and chuckled at other times. This was a quick fun great romance read. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend.
