    The authors may be nice people, but resorting to buy fake reviews for their horrendously written book? Hilarious and pathetic.

For example: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/8... Low effort, really, even when buying a dime a dozen reviews. Just change up a few words to copy the names of the protagonists from the book blurbs and post the same thing for dozens of books on the same day. https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/9... "Loads of twists throughout to keep you on your toes." "The story was put together brilliantly with lots of twists." "This book was full of action, twists and turns throughout. To make an amazing book. " "Even though they are short they are full of action with lots of turns you might not see coming." "All the twists and turns keep you on your toes with every page." Sure, "Cheryl" is totally a real person reviewing 2-3 books a day with the exact same generic marketing catchprases. It's just disgusting that the same fake review phenomenon on Amazon has now even migrated to GR and that writers are truly so desperate, they probably rationalize it to themselves as necessary "marketing." If only they had spent a fraction of the time buying fake reviews on actually improving their ridiculously horrible writing. Edit: "angela gunstone" with 453 reviews https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/6... Spammed "Loved the characters and the storyline so couldn't put it down until the end so it's a well deserved five stars and I would recommend this book to everyone" in dozens and dozens of reviews. Every book got the exact same copy and pasted fake review, I have page after page of screenshots. Real great job guys, at least spend a little more to buy some better quality fake reviewers.

    Ok where to start, let me firstly say that only these wonderfully wacky ladies could create something this bonkers but brilliant. The book starts off a little slow but this is needed for world building and Characteur definition and once it gets going its a really good storey.

There is humour, friendship and potential love interest that have me really looking forward to book two as the heat will definitely start to rise with Mor and her wolves but also hopefully with Ava and Chuck. There are so many Academy books coming out and a lot of them are really good but only a few fall into the brilliant, absolutely cant wait for the next instalment category and this is one of those books.

Again, I DNF, so perhaps it's a setup, but either way, didn't work for me.

    Good idea but is in desperate need of a good editor! I couldn't even finish the book I only made it 1/3 of the way through before I had to give up. First off, the grammar is awful. There are hundreds of run on sentences. The thought process is cluttered and clunky. The author tries way too hard to be descriptive but doesn't actually describe anything. The descriptions don't even match throughout the book. The school looks old on the outside but brand new on the inside yet her dorms are filthy? A Good idea but is in desperate need of a good editor!

The thought process is cluttered and clunky. The author tries way too hard to be descriptive but doesn't actually describe anything. The descriptions don't even match throughout the book. The school looks old on the outside but brand new on the inside yet her dorms are filthy? And it's a school for super influential families but they have cheap uniforms and crappy dorms and food? Then there's the main character, I made it 37% through and still have no idea what she looks like. Her character is all over the place. One minute she's over being famous but then she's a total snob when she gets there and gets offended people don't automatically know who she is. She's all excited to go to this school and as soon as she gets there, she's whinny and wants to go home. Then she acts like a bad ass one minute and then she's afraid of some shifters the next? You have no idea why the other students hate her. Maybe it's because she is a vampire? But she's not the only vampire there? And the whole story is choppy. There is no smooth transition from one scene to the next. One minute she was unpacking her stuff and then the next she was in the cafeteria and then she was in class, but you don't really know how she got from one to the other or even if they happened in different days. Overall I was super disappointed with the book. I almost always at least finish the book but I just couldn't take it anymore and feel like I wasted 2 hours of my life.

Bottom line: if you like reverse harem's that feature a magical academy with lots of mean girls and many different types of creatures, this series might be right up your alley.

    Ok, first the good stuff. Really enjoyed the story. I liked how Mor’s character developed. I liked the different creatures introduced to the story and at the academy. Loved the bestie and how the two girls grew to be the tightest bffs. On the other hand, the love interests didn’t spark much love or heat. It was more protectiveness. Those relationships did not naturally develop. We know hardly nothing about Judas and his pack other than he loves a challenge and wants to protect Mor. There were lay Ok, first the good stuff.

Those relationships did not naturally develop. We know hardly nothing about Judas and his pack other than he loves a challenge and wants to protect Mor. There were layers of villains. The felines has some pretty bitchy moments, but we knew nothing about the real villain and then she just pops up at the end and gets dealt with very very quickly. It was a bit strange. And then magically Mor is still returning to the academy. No reason given by the Ancient, just oooh I’m trying to be cryptic and mysterious type stuff. It just didn’t really work in the end. I’ll give book 2 a go because you just don’t know in the end. Sometimes stories just blossom beautifully and you don’t want to miss it.

    This wasn't a bad concept, but a not so awesome execution. The authors need to work on the plot, on the editing, and don't get me started on the inconsistencies and continuity issues. So all in all it has good ideas that need more backbone. I hope the next books in the series are better and the authors realized where they went wrong. I gave 3* because while it was all of those things, it did keep my interest and I would give book two a chance. This wasn't a bad concept, but a not so awesome execution.

    Mysterious, action filled fun! What a fun book this was to read. It starts off with a bang and goes from there. I really liked the unpredictable story line that kept you guessing reading. Looking forward to whats in store for Morwenna and Ava and their potential men!

    I'm slightly on the fence about this one. While I understand in the world-building a 99 years old vampire is still considered young, the fact the students act like teens, and immature ones at that, just didn't work for me. There's some really witty dialog, and very interesting characters, but this read like a mean girls/teen high school story--a genre I don't care for. Other readers of YA may find the book more appealing, which is why I rounded up my 3.5 to a 4-star rating. I'm slightly on the fence about this one.

Prepare to dive into a fun, fast-paced novel that will have you rolling your eyes, giggling, leaning forward in eager anticipation, and begging for more by the end.

Prepare to dive into a fun, fast-paced novel that will have you rolling your eyes, giggling, leaning forward in eager anticipation, and begging for more by the end. Meet…Morwenna, the vampire daughter of a very powerful vampire who pulls no punches…only fangs. LOL! Her father is feared, important, and wants the best for her but she just wants a regular life. Apparently, she’s a bit obsessed with 90210 and finding her “Dylan.” So after an embarrassing scene, that she totally did at a party, she’s given the opportunity to go to Bestia’s Academy. Mor jumps at the opportunity thinking that this is her chance…too bad it won’t be what she’s expecting. But things only get intense and really crazy as danger makes itself known in the worst way possible…dead body in the new girl’s room. I must admit that I enjoyed this book immensely. At first, I was on the fence concerning Morwenna. I was a bit humored by her antics at the party, but I was also mortified for her parents. It’d be one thing if she had said/done what she did to a low level vamp…but it was someone of rank! So I was expecting her to get into some serious trouble. Too bad that never happened. Yeah, I like a bit of punishment. LOL! I honestly got a bit smug though when she got to the Academy and saw that things weren’t going to be what she was accustomed to. She wanted freedom, independence, and space and the minute she gets it you see the “princess” attitude comes out. I liked her development though. The variety of characters the authors give us are great! I more than happily admit that I am LOVING Ava! She is AWESOME! Now, while I rolled my eyes a few times at Morwenna and her attitude concerning certain things I have to say that there isn’t anything that I don’t like about this book! There are some predictable elements, but I loved the air of mystery, the danger, the romance, and the unpredictable moments that the authors give us. This book is a must read! It’s a perfectly balanced coming of age novel with hints of a reverse harem romance. I can’t wait for more and I am literally begging the authors to give us more of that and of course, I am eagerly wanting more of Ava and Chuck. That is promising to be something hilarious, delicious, and intense and I am here for it! I am rating this book 5 out of 5 stars!

    Was very excited with the concept of this book, but I was let down by how underwhelmed I was. The plot could have been amazing, but it took a backseat to the teenage drama going on between the characters, which bothered me because the main character is supposed to be 99 years old. I didn't like the heroine either because, she wants to be independent and says she's not like the snobby rich girls she's always surrounded with back at home, but then turns around and turns her nose at a bedroom (whic Was very excited with the concept of this book, but I was let down by how underwhelmed I was.

I didn't like the heroine either because, she wants to be independent and says she's not like the snobby rich girls she's always surrounded with back at home, but then turns around and turns her nose at a bedroom (which she gets to herself) because it's dusty and has a small closet that won't hold all her designer shoes and clothes. And then when told she'd have to clean the room herself, the 99 year old vampire nearly had a heart attack because she's never had to clean before. Little things like this just made me upset, as well as the fact that she claims she can take care of herself, but is constantly have people save her because she cannot protect herself in the slightest. And there was supposed to be a slow-burn romance between the main character and a certain pack of wolves, but I felt zero chemistry and the romance was very awkward to read about. I felt no attraction and didn't understand why the guys liked her, or her them, in a romantic way when I can only see them as close friends. Their friendship was actually something I liked about this book because, the lack of chemistry aside, I really liked this friendship and wanted to see where it was going. This just wasn't the book for me. I wanted more from the plot and the characterization, but I was left very disappointed. If you like YA RH storylines, you might like this one. Don't let my review discourage you from trying this book out. You never know, what doesn't work for me might be your new favorite book!

And it bothered me (and still kind of does, if I'm being completely honest) that the characters are all around one hundred years old and still considered "teenagers." But I eventually understood that the different supernatural races all age at a very slow rate. As I kept reading, I grew more curious and invested into the story. What was this young vampire girl's deal? Why was she kept protected for so long and why is she so different. (She's a terrible vampire, FYI.) Then comes the other characters. Chuck, Ava, Judas, Bond, and Nero. These wonderful people tie everything together to make an epic story. Ava is the darling of the series. She's different, has a wicked sense of humor, and will drop everything to bury bodies for her bestie. Who wouldn't want a friend like that? And her little romance thing with Chuck is just everything wonderful. I love it and hope more comes from them. I love that the wolves are the main romantic interests in this, because of the way vampires and werewolves are portrayed as enemies most of the time. Judas is a strong leader with too many secrets. Bond we don't know much about at this time, nor Nero really. Not until the next books. In the end, there are some intriguing questions that still need answered and the journey to the finale of the book was enjoyable. I'm glad I pushed through my doubts and read Beautiful Beasts #1. ;):) CF

And the book was far from cheesy. I was laughing through most of it. Mor and Ava are great personalities. The story follows Morwenna, a 99 years old vampire. She's the heir to her city's Cowen. She has grown up in a palace, with parties, manners, strict rules and with maids to do whatever she wants, and organic blood delivered in bags by donors. She hates it. The pampering is fine. She deserves to be pampered. The maids are begging her to be the ones helping her.... no, the issue is the responsibilities. Having to go to boring parties, having to pretend to like her "boyfriend" the demon trying to gain her fathers favor. So when her father gives her to opportunity to go to Bestias Avademy, she jump at the chance. They're surely gonna love her. It will be a walk in the park. When she gets to the school, and is shows to her nasty room, filled with cobwebs, dust and METAL hangers, she starts having second thoughts... meeting Ava, her new BFF makes it manageable, but of course it cant be that easy. She finsa dead body in her bed. The body of a mortal boy, which means that whoever murdered him broke just around 50 laws... and she is being framed...

Her flirtation with Chuck had me giggling and I hope we get to delve deeper into that, but more than that she's just cool as hell. I'd love to have her as my BFF :) Overall, great story line. It all starts with someone trying to frame Morwenna. As the story develops you start to realize that all is not well in the Vamp world and I also got the sense that the supernatural pact is holding together by a thread. There is more to Morwenna than meets the eye - she's not your typical vamp but there's more to her ability than even she's aware of. She's definitely more of a predator than she gives herself credit for & I think it will come to light with her job in the vampire hierarchy. I can not wait to see how this proceeds.

    Umm... huge problem. One that I couldn't for the life of me overlook. Not really a spoiler I don't think. SHE'S 100 YEARS OLD. Like yeah okay that's cool, but then she acts like she's 15... maybe 16. All her friends are normal high school ages (16 ish?) and they act more mature than she does. It's just a huge issue I have. And I'm up to book 3 (apparently I like torturing myself) and so far her age isn't impacting anything. I would kind of understand it if there was more to it, but I feel like bec Umm... huge problem.

I would kind of understand it if there was more to it, but I feel like because of her age she should be more developed as a character. Like PUH LEASE, a 100 year old virgin... that has no friends.... and hasn't done anything with her life... never fed like a normal vampire... still calls her dad daddy... her father figure-like 150 plus year old guard connecting with her 16 year old friend. Not. Right. None of it. Plus the love interests are boring. Judas is cool but do Nero and Bond even have personalities? I feel like they've been added in just so it's a reverse harem. And before you think it, I'm half way through book 3 and I still feel like this. Overall, this was a good book to force myself to read at night so I got tired faster. Total snooze fest.

    I actually scored an audio copy of this book from the author and listened to that, but I do own the ebook. I enjoyed the story of a "young" vampire girl (she is 99 at the start of the book, lol) who has a bad attitude and a smart mouth. When she is threatened with attending the academy she surprises her father by jumping at the chance. She is bored and wants to have her Beverly Hills 90210 moment, ah Dillion. She is rudely surprised to find out that life at the academy is nothing like she hoped. I actually scored an audio copy of this book from the author and listened to that, but I do own the ebook.

When she is threatened with attending the academy she surprises her father by jumping at the chance. She is bored and wants to have her Beverly Hills 90210 moment, ah Dillion. She is rudely surprised to find out that life at the academy is nothing like she hoped. There are wolves for one thing. Her father has always hated wolves and Morwenna, Mor for short, can't believe they are even allowed to attend the school. (Wait until she finds out what her best friend is.) There are also a bunch of cat shifters and they are the mean girls club. It is obvious from the start that she is not wanted at the school. Everyone is out to get her and that is why she is only slightly surprised to find the dead body in her room. The dead Human body. With bite marks at the neck. Good thing her new bestie is up for the challenge of carting around a dead body in the middle of the night. Now they have to find out who really murdered the guy before Mor is thrown in the dungeon, and worse embarrasses the family - again. Can't wait to listen to the next one.

    💕WOW💕 This might be my favorite book I have read this year! I was unsure how much I would like Mor since she is a very pampered princess and I almost sent the book back before we got to Bestias. I am so glad I stuck with it because IT BLEW MY SOCKS OFF!! Mor is the daughter of a vampire mob boss, so she isn’t really a stranger to violence. A dead body makes her heave, so she is kind of delicate for a vampire. Her new roommate at school is a powerful kraken who seems pretty mild-mannered until you 💕WOW💕 This might be my favorite book I have read this year!

Add in three hot wolves that daddy won’t approve of but that get and like your kind of crazy...I sense some super steamy times in the future! The dialogue is fantastic and the characters original. The dynamic between the two girls is genius. They are committed to being BFFs without having had close friends before. So both are a little insecure and do selfish things but their unflinching honesty helps them sort things out and move forward. I am almost more interested in the friendship than the romance that’s slow-burning with the wolves. All of the characters are complex, engaging and entertaining. I need a second read ASAP, it’s just that good!

    Ok start but needs a lot Ok read, I liked it but had issues with the underdevelopment of the characters, we get a few references to hair color and eye color but not much else. Also we find out a little about the bff but not much of everyone else, I wanted to know more about the wolves? S**** I even wanted to know about the felines! This story didn't have much of that information I needed in a back story , we get no background into why there is Some kinda hate between these sups, yet at the end th Ok start but needs a lot Ok read, I liked it but had issues with the underdevelopment of the characters, we get a few references to hair color and eye color but not much else.

This story didn't have much of that information I needed in a back story , we get no background into why there is Some kinda hate between these sups, yet at the end they are all there, these supernaturals, I was surprised and confused? I also didn't feel the chemistry with our guys, it was pretty much second handed to what I feel was the real bottom line to this amazing story, a new crazy friendship. I loved the kraken and vamp do or die friendship, two sups from two different world's making a pack for life, yes I dug it, I even loved our bffs pursuit of a sexy vamp body guard, it was a lot more deliciously hot then what the author tries to shove on us with mor and the wolf's which I found a little sad

    I offered to review this audiobook because I am such an an avid reader but also almost exclusively audio due to my schedule. Because of this, and the fact that a bad narrator can destroy a great series, I can be very critical of narrators. Especially when books have a single narrator required to speak with different voices for multiple characters. Most cannot do it without having some errors where they use the wrong 'voice' for the wrong character.

Especially when books have a single narrator required to speak with different voices for multiple characters. Most cannot do it without having some errors where they use the wrong 'voice' for the wrong character. Caitlyn Johnston does a good job in narrating this book! It was a very enjoyable listen and I only noticed one issue distinguishing between characters. As to the story, I am not one to give a lot of specific story details since I feel you should read the story for that. This is book 1 of a series with great characters, and story development. It was a bit slow of a start, but given my experience with other Kim Faulks' books I decided to keep listening and I am very glad I did. You definitely won't be disappointed if you decide to give it a try! I received a free review copy of this audiobook and am voluntarily leaving a review.
