After my mother’s death, I am told that I a Dark. Magical. Powerful. Beastly. Aslan McTavish is the Magical Beast King who rules the Forbidden Forest, one of the nine kingdoms in the Aurora Realm. My name is Lilly, and I have lived in the basement of a manor all my life with my beloved mother, working away like a pair of slaves for the people who live in comfort upstairs. After my mother’s death, I am told that I am to be sacrificed to the magical beast who rules the forbidden forest, in return for the village’s protection, wealth, and prosperity. Refusing to resign myself to my fate, I plan to escape, only to be caught again by none other than the beast himself, whose demonic mask and beautiful green eyes both frightens and fascinates me. Now that there is no way out, I beg the beast to spare my life.

What I thought of it: This story was like a mixture of Beauty and the Beast and the Phantom of the Opera with a twist. Lily is locked away in a basement by her father and grandfather ( why because her mother was not of noble blood so stupid). She then becomes a sacrafice to the the beast. However, he takes an interest in her (a sexual one) I think what I like about this story is that the writing style portays Lillys innocence and how sheltered she was. For example, she thought sex meant cuddling like when her mother would cuddle her. Kind of creepy. And how she doesnt even know what panties or bras are. ( I wanted to scream when she said a bra was confromtable and woman would say no to that) but what made the story not so beilvable of innocence is when Lilly could name the diffrent types of wood and know what things in the room are yet she didnt know how to brush her teeth or what a lot of food was. Since she read a lot of history books I dont see how she would know what mahogony is. The ending took me by surpise. I thought when Aslan took the mask off he would reveal a scar or something. Instead he actually turns into a beast. The only way he can look human is if he wears a mask. I think this book shows that even looks and apperences can be devecing but its the heart or the person that matters .

    If there was a way to give this story a negative star rating I would. The whole thing was a confusing fusion of fairytale and urban fantasy.

Lilly’s character is naïve to the extreme and agrees out of a want to survive not because she was agreeing and CONSENTING to the act. Even later it is not properly explained to her what she’s agreed to and she is basically manipulated into the “relationship”. This story was poorly written, but I have seen this story done right. If you’re looking for a fairytale, retelling or just some fun fantasy reading with fairytale elements you are better off reading things like ‘Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon’ by Kerrelyn Sparks or the Once Upon a Spell series (I highly recommend Bk 1 ‘Beauty and the Beast’) by Vivienne Savage. There was a way to tell this story and this WAS NOT it.

    In this sweet and sexual retelling of Beauty and The Beast, Alexia did a fantastical job of creating the Forbidden Forest Kingdom where our hero and heroine have to face adversities from their past, present and future. A strong start to the series where the storyline unfolds at a 'absolutely engaging and page-turning' pace. I loved the unique aspect - concept of Qi - behind the magic of the Aurora Realm.

Their story would have been that much better if their cuddling came after they had gotten to know each other better and for Lilly to feel safer with Aslan. But I did like how they bonded throughout the story (view spoiler)[ and loved how Aslan took a leap of faith and showed Lilly his true self without his mask. (hide spoiler)] Swooooon~

    This book was a really cute romance fantasy. Definitely had its touch of the erotics in between scenes with Lily & King Aslan McTavish  of the Forbidden Forrest. Oh by the way Lily is the Belle character in this adult fairy tale. This story is worth reading and author spins this adaptation beautifully. After I was done reading this book it left me wanting to read more. This is the first book that I've read from Alexia A - Alexia Praks. I know that I will follow the series since that's how great This book was a really cute romance fantasy.

This is the first book that I've read from Alexia A - Alexia Praks. I know that I will follow the series since that's how great & intriguing the first novel was. So I rate this book with two thumbs up and five stars. I would recommend anyone to read the book or listen to the audio book. I've done both and loved it so much. I am so glad that my friend Daisy recommended this book to me.

She has been sheltered too much; she barely knows anything, so she just caves in to her 'primal' instincts. I got quite uncomfortable reading the steamy scenes.

    Pretty interesting I love fairytale retellings because you can do so much with them. This author did a great job with weaving an excellent tale based on one of my favorites. I look forward to reading the second part.

    Lily Might have the body of a woman, but psychologically, developmentally, she is still very much a child, and “The Beast” has no business having sex with her, especially since she doesn’t even know what’s actually happening! I like that she doesn’t cure the curse, she just accepts him as he is.

    Excellent An excellent reimagining of Beauty and the Beast. I’m a huge fan of the Grimm fairytales, not the Disney versions!! This had all the dark and dirty that truly brought the original stories to life.

    An interesting fairy tale retelling that is quick and easy to read. I would recommend it to all, who love retellings and have nothing against erotica in such books either.

    I really liked the concept of this book! However, there are a lot of moments of problematic consent that I can't get past, plus so many unanswered questions!

    The Beast and I by Alexia Praks-- This was a freebie, and despite having questionable consent (mostly due to our protagonist's crappy father chaining her in a basement for her entire life) it was pretty cool. Nice world building! Happy Reading!
