Posted June 5, 2018 by Marsha in Contemporary Romance, Series / 0 Comments

A tale as old as time: she needs a place to stay, he’s a grump with a secret and an extra room…can love find a way?

Living in her overprotective dad’s basement, shy Belle lives her life through books. Being a part of the Naughty Princess Club is the first adventure she’s ever had, plus she desperately needs the money to save one of her favorite places – the local library.

But when her new friends and new business gets her kicked out of her dad’s house, Belle is rescued by the surly Vincent “Beast” Adams who invites her to be his house guest until she gets back on her feet. Despite his attitude problem and long list of rules, Belle finds herself warming to the muscled man with a penchant for growling and starts seeing a gentle side to him that wasn’t there before.

Yet there’s a room that Beast keeps locked and Belle keeps getting hints that Beast is hiding something…can a nerdy librarian tame the beast or will their romance be over before it has a chance to blossom? 

Meet the Naughty Princess Club, a series from USA Today bestselling author Tara Sivec that brings readers to Fairytale Lane and the hilarity—and romance—that three women fall into once they decide to strut their stuff and bring on their own happily ever after.

Titles in the Naughty Princess Club series include:  At The Stroke of Midnight – In Bed With the Beast – Kiss the Girl

My Rating:  4.5 stars

I had a blast with In Bed With The Beast, and if you love a good modern day retelling of a fairy tale classic, then you’ll want to grab this book right now.  And really, don’t the colors of that cover remind you of Belle’s gown, you know, the other Belle.  *grin*

Belle is our nerdy, book lover and can she ever come up with the most obscure quotes imaginable.  I loved Belle and it certainly isn’t difficult to imagine her or her reaction to one growly, fierce, hot bouncer Vincent.  When she stands up to her dad Belle finds herself evicted quickly and is in need of a more permanent place to stay than the library..  Vincent comes to her rescue with a spare guest room, a long list of rules and thing to not do, including messing with a locked room.

On the surface the sweet Belle and the burly Vincent would seem total opposites, and in many ways they are.  Yet, in the heart, the personality and the emotions these two people are a perfect fit.  I loved their interactions, the way they slowly overcame their differences and of course, the smoldering sizzle that surrounds them whenever in each other’s company.  As I said, I had such fun with In Bed With The Beast and if you love fairy tale retellings in a modern setting then you’ll love this one, too.  I would recommend this one and the entire series to any Contemporary Romance reader who enjoys a good romance, and has never left fairy tales behind.

*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
