Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time, I believed in fairytales.
But then he took me.
And he taught me that life isn't a fairytale.
He is scarred. Broken.
A dark and wild thing.
His beauty is violent and his words are cruel.
His heart is a shadowed landscape where nothing can grow.
He tells me he could never care for me, and he proves it every day.
He's destroyed my life.
Tortured me.
And worse....
He's trained me to beg for his affection.
This prison is a place where sunlight doesn't reach.
He taught me that hate is born in darkness.
And then he taught me that sometimes love is too.

Ferocious predator? Or sexy sadomasochist?

When Isabell's father goes missing, she tries to get information on a case he was working on.
The prize for her nosiness?? A phychopath stalker that she actually knows.
Javier is a well trained killer who's hell bent on vengeance.
This brutally cruel monster is obsessed with capturing, caging, and torturing Bella.
Bella has enough common sense to know Javier is dangerous and yet she's so indecisive, you just want to yell.. It's just Stockholm making you find solace in your sadistic capturer RUN BELLA RUN!!
Even when Javier isn't playing the bad guy roll, he's still not redeemable enough for me to like him.
This story is intriguing and well written enough to make you believe that these 2 people with their own brand of "crazy love" were meant to be.
On this particular book Tracy Marks gave a perfectly stellar performance.
I usually have to turn down the speed so that she doesn't sound like an auctioneer. When she speaks to quickly its hard to feel the characters emotions.
I'm so happy she toned it down 👏
So is this book credit worthy??
Well, I requested this book in exchange for my honest review because I like to switch it up and go into the darkness sometime.
If you're looking for dark and Suspenseful
I say, yes enjoy the ride.. It's a brutal one🔪

Love Is A Battlefield

Isabella’s singing career is on the rise, but she’s still terribly unhappy with her life. Things get a lot worse when she’s kidnapped by Javi who has a grudge against her father and he’s going to make “Bella” pay the price.

Amazing, that’s all I can say about the very dark, very twisted take on the Beauty and the Beast story. Javi is truly cruel and abusive towards Bella before she turns the tables on him and flips his world upside down. If you have triggers or are sensitive to scenes that involve emotional and physical abuse, you may want to skip this one. I have no such filters and I loved this story! It’s raw, suspenseful and deeply erotic. I won’t forget this one anytime soon.

Tracy Marks narrates this nearly 8-hour audiobook and in this fully-voiced production she really shines. Her accent for Javi’s character was all kinds of hot. This story required so much emotion from both main characters and Tracy nailed the transformation of Javi’s character from beast to man. The audiobook is fast paced and Tracy is a fast talker so it all worked together well in this audiobook.

Beast is the first book that I’ve listened to from author A. Zavarelli, but I’ll be heading over to see what else she’s written because I’m hooked!

This audiobook was given to me at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review, thanks, Audiobook Boom!
