A tale as old as time: she needs a place to stay, he's a grump with a secret and an extra room...can love find a way?

Meet the Naughty Princess Club, a series from USA Today bestselling author Tara Sivec that brings readers to Fairytale Lane and the hilarity—and romance—that three women fall into once they decide to strut their stuff and bring on their own happily ever after.

Living in her overprotective dad’s basement, shy Belle lives her life through books. Being a part of the Naughty Princess Club is the first adventure she’s ever had, plus she desperately needs the money to save one of her favorite places - the local library.

But when her new friends and new business gets her kicked out of her dad’s house, Belle is rescued by the surly Vincent “Beast” Adams who invites her to be his house guest until she gets back on her feet. Despite his attitude problem and long list of rules, Belle finds herself warming to the muscled man with a penchant for growling and starts seeing a gentle side to him that wasn’t there before.

Yet there’s a room that Beast keeps locked and Belle keeps getting hints that Beast is hiding something…can a nerdy librarian tame the beast or will their romance be over before it has a chance to blossom?

”He’s been overly polite with me during the few minutes each day we see each other, which I’m quickly realizing I don’t like one bit. I’ve actually grown to kind of like his surly, overbearing nature.”

 

Review~

The premise behind the story of the “Beauty & The Beast” is and always will be one of my favorites. It has been done a variety of different ways and in different settings but the concept is always the same. I can’t get enough of it and Tara just nailed my need for another right here.

“I’m nobody’s hero, princess. And this isn’t a fairy tale.” 

This is such a great spoof on the Disney classics. The first one was Cinderella and now this is Belle’s chance to find happiness. The play on stuff from the movie was done just enough to make me chuckle but not over done to where I would roll my eyes at it. This could stand on its own just like the first book and I love that Tara made sure that they could.

“Sweet mother of pearl, he’s got the V.” 

My only request would have been to get a little more one on one time between Belle and Beast. They had a lot scenes together and everything about those scenes were fantastic, I just wanted them to not be so short. Well sometimes they felt that way and I know he was a man of few words but I would have liked to seen the connection between them more. This doesn’t mean I didn’t love the book, because I did. I just missed that part and that’s my favorite part of reading romance, the fall. Nothing makes me swoon harder than watching a man fall in love. It’s book crack I tell ya!

Tara you’re amazing at what you do. Keep it up and I can’t wait for Ariel’s book! She’s basically me and I’m ready to fall for Eric. I love me some love-hate angry sex. The harder they fight it the hotter it is. LOL!

 

“It almost feels a little bit like the start of a fairy tale. You know, if the prince was maddening and gruff and just ordered the princess around.”
