Bette & the Beast by Liza Penn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This a short novella introducing us to Hotel Ever After, Bette owns a beautiful, but rundown Book shop called HAPPILY EVER AFTER.
The Beast of the title is Richard, the Hotel Developer wanting to buy the shop so he can build his Hotel.
Bette's father sets up a dinner meeting, without Bette not realising who he really is. They fall very quickly in lust, which turns into love.
This is a very short novella, and everything happens very quickly, which is the nature of the beast.
That being said, they great to read between getting into something much longer, but want a quick fix in- between others.
The beef for me is I like a bit more meat on the bones, but this wouldn't be a novella if that was the case.
I enjoyed the characters, and what a great place to pick to play out other adult Fairytales.
This series of stories are going to be publish a new one once a month
This is what Liza Penn says about:
The Hotel Ever After Books
Sexy, modern stories with a happily ever after
Each of the Hotel Ever After books is (very) loosely based on a fairy tale. Which means they're all guaranteed to have a happily ever after. They're also guaranteed to have a (very) sexy twist. My heroines aren't literally princesses, but they are very much in control of their destiny--and they're not afraid to take exactly what they want from their prince charmings!
Important note: these stories are novellas, each about 75-100 pages long. Perfect for an afternoon tryst!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
