As you know by now, it's impossible for me to resist a serial that looks SO good. It's Beauty and the Beast, book buddies, but with a seriously sick twist. Love it! I'm very happy to share with you my opinion of Beast part 1, and some details on its second part that has been released today.
MY OPINION OF BEAST
This is an erotic fairy tale inspired by Beauty and the Beast.
Powerful and intense. I can taste those two words after reading this episode. No doubt about wanting, craving, more doses of the same treat.
It left me panting with surprise, breathless with shock and excitement. I thought I knew what was coming my way, but oh no, it was brutal and fascinating all at once.
The teen with a crush on a movie star is endearing. I can easily understand she wanted to meet her idol, but was also intimidated by getting too close to him. It's so cute that she both melted and was relieved when that short but steamy moment together was less frightening that she thought, also more arousing.
The man. Or the beast. Oh, wow. He's full of crap, all kinds of baggage, makes such huge mistakes I can't believe him. He's also lonely, has exotic blood in his veins, and is sexier that an ice-cream in the desert.
The spark of sensuality is there, believe me, though the story goes beyond the sphere of erotic. It actually throws unexpected turns and the author's voice conveys drama and realism.
I love the twists the fairy tale has undergone: the mansion is now a prison, the Beast is now running a dirty empire in jail, the menace and threats are now sexual domination. Let me warn you: this is brutal. It's too much, and too good.
He's called Beast for a reason, girls, and poor Annabelle is having a nasty encounter with him at the gritty, violent, crashing finale of this episode. This is a tornado of sex, cars, drugs and power. I'm quaking in my slippers for what's gonna happen next...
Yes or no? What will she do? Can Annabelle redeem Beast with her heart intact, or will her time at La Rosa Prison ruin her? Find out who Beast really is in the dark, erotic retelling of Beauty & The Beast.
He takes my hand and leads me to a window seat. A built-in bench, pressed up against a wall of glass. He wraps his hands around my waist and lifts me up. Sits me down up there. My eyes scan the patchy, dirt-strewn yard outside. The way the rain smashes off the ground and into something else. The sky is white. Stark white.
“Just a minute,” he says.
My mind screams as he steps away. He reaches onto some shelves along the wall and grabs an armful of navy blue blankets. Painters’ blankets, I realize as he holds them out for me. He sits them on the bench beside me. Smooths one out. Lifts me up and sits me on it. Then he tucks another one behind me.
“Thank you,” I murmur. Despite the blankets’ tattered appearance, they seem soft enough. There’s no paint on them, and they don’t smell like it. Another one unfolded by his big hands, tucked around me.
“You got wet. Warm up a moment.”
I sit there because my brain is broken and my heart feels puffed up like a balloon.
He climbs up behind me and gently nudges me forward. He leans his torso up against mine, spreads his legs around my butt and thighs. Strong hands begin to knead my shoulders.
“Don’t be nervous here, Angel. I’ll take care of you. Always.”
