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🔪

Not for me!!!!

I fell for the cover. I found this too dark and disturbing for me. Fair warning: this has rape, torture, humiliation, and abuse. I'm all about twisted fairy tales but I could not stomach this Beauty and the Beast. I commend Tracy Marks on her fantastic narration. She is one of my favorite narrators. I enjoyed the Boston Underworld series and I look forward to other Zavarelli books. This one? No way, not worth my credit.

A dark read - I loved it

I love a dark romance and A Zavarelli did not disappoint with this story of a damaged soul, Javier, taking revenge on his torturer in the worst possible way by kidnapping and torturing and exacting some of the same cruel and sadistic things on his daughter, the beautiful Bella. Javier knows everything about Bella, he is obsessed with her, and Bella becomes a slave to his affection, almost begging for his love and touch. A clever story, so well written with twists and turns, I had no idea who to trust. Definitely not a book for the faint hearted, some sadistic and downright cruel scenes. I loved it.
I received a copy of this book audiobook via audio book boom in exchange for an honest review.
The audio was spot on even with only one narrater narrating both POVs. Couldn't fault it.

Love love loooove this book

Where does Beast rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Both main characters plus River, who's story I can't wait for.

What about Tracy Marks’s performance did you like?

I love her voice. I think she would make bad book sound good. She is my favorite female narrator on audible website.

Any additional comments?

I love Zavarelli's style of writing. I really loved this book and I bought it in hard copy too. It's kind of a book I can listen to on repeat (together with her Reaper, which i listened to like hundred times already). Yes, main male character was a bit harsh sometimes, but it was really good spicy love story.
