Melissa's Review:

In Bed with the Beast is book 2 in the Naughty Princess Club. I'm loving this series, I didn't think TSivec could top book one but I was wrong. This is like a mash up of a Beauty and the Beast retelling in the modern day with tons of humor and the author's unique writing style intertwined. She made the story her own and I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. The next book will be Ariel's POV and I'm excited!!

Belle winds up getting kicked out of her father's house and not wanting to impose upon her two BFFs Cindy and Ariel she crashes at her work, the library. It doesn't take long before Beast, the bouncer at Charming's Gentlemen's Club to stop by each night before closing and notice that something is up. I was really intrigued by Beast's character in the previous novel and glad we got to find out more about him. Belle winds up staying at Beast's house and the gals decide Belle needs to enter the dating life to get more experience before she can be a stripper at their start up business. She's not very experienced with the other sex and tends to spout off random facts when she's nervous so I could see why she'd need this push. Her character's personality really reminds me of Bernadette in The Big Bang Theory if you're familiar with that show. True to the retelling, Beast is prickly but grows softer towards her the more they're together. He's also not a fan of her going on dates with all these guys. I couldn't wait to see how they'd work everything out and had a hard time stopping the audiobook. That's always a good sign to me when I don't want to stop reading.

With never a dull moment, In Bed with the Beast is a highly entertaining must read. I loved the characters, the retelling aspect and the hilarious situations they got into. While you could read these out of order, I'd say read them in order since all the characters are in each book so you'll get a bit of back story for everyone with further details explained in their own story. All in all, if you're a fan of retellings with humor mixed into a steamy romance grab this series!

The Narrator: 

CJ Bloom really is a perfect match for these audiobooks. She's really expressive with her voice and reflects the emotions the characters are going through well. I can't wait to see how Ariel's book is with CJ as the narrator. I have a feeling I'm going to laugh a ton.
