4 Submissive CROWNS
I honestly didn’t know how I was going to love Beast’s story, simply because I have never read about a submissive male. I generally like my heroes to be dominate alphas, and so I was concerned about my connection to the hero of Wicked Beast. This concern was completely unfounded. I loved Beast, Beauty, and their story.
Beast is such a contradictory character. Yes, he is a submissive, but not in a way that he just allows himself to be controlled. His relinquishing of control is a choice, and not just because it is his predilection but also because it provides the person he is with what he/she needs. His submission is about giving others with what they need to be happy, to feel needed, to heal. He has an unbelievable heart and cares immensely for his friends and even for Beauty. I absolutely fell in love with his character, I just wish we got more of him because a novella just wasn’t enough Beastie for me.
Beauty is such a complex character, so complex I wish we could have gotten into her layers a little more. But it is a novella, and I understand that novellas do not always allow for such character development. For the limitations of a novella, though, Ms. Andrews does a phenomenal job with her character. We get to see what lies behind the cold eyes and mask as Beast works to break down her walls, and what readers find underneath will break hearts, fully explaining what motivates this seemingly emotionless domme. Just like Beast, Beauty won me over. As the story progressed and her character evolved, I loved her even more.
This story! Yet again, the story is what sucks me into this world. What I found to be interesting is the almost reversal of the actual tale of Beauty and the Beast. Beauty has isolated herself from the world, locking up her emotions to guard herself. Beast is the one that goes to her home to live with her, cutting himself off from his friends and family. He is the one the breaks her down and sees what is underneath, becoming her champion. This complete reversal is absolutely genius! Genius! I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love this aspect of these novellas. Her twist on these fairytales is unique and refreshing, and I am enamored with the Kingdom and all of its players.
This is quickly becoming a favorite novella series for me. I will return again and again to visit Mal, Beast, Charm, and Wolf in their Kingdom, as they provide me with angsty and sexy retellings of some of my favorite tales. I am completely and totally enthralled, and I cannot wait for Wolf (still holding out hop for Mal’s story).
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
WICKED BEAST (AVAILABLE NOW)
James “Beast” Lutz isn’t like his friends.
He doesn’t crave control the way Charm and Mal do, and he doesn’t play the games Wolf thrives on.
He lives on his knees, all of his strength bent to the will of his Domme.
He’s never regretted that, until now.
Now, when he’s trapped in an arrangement serving a Domme who can’t keep a sub.
Now, when he’s not sure how to trust a woman wrapped in mystery and less sure he wants to.
But the more he gets to know the Domme everyone knows as Beauty, the more Beast realizes everything he thought he knew was wrong.

WICKED CHARMING (Wicked Ever After, #1)
He’s at the top of the world.
He’s rich, sought after, and in control.
And he’s bored.
A string of one-night stands have left Samul Charming increasingly dissatisfied. When his mother pushes him to settle down, his best friends come up with a brilliant plan:
Audition the submissives at The Kingdom.
The problem is, Charm knows who he wants: the only girl to challenge him, while submitting as naturally as breathing.
But he can’t have her.
With the entire club watching and his parents expecting him to marry soon, Charm decides to settle.
But love in the Kingdom is never simple and it is never painless.
And Charm is about to be reminded of that.

WICKED WOLF (Coming February 27)
Charles Wolf Blackwood likes the game. He likes chasing a new girl every week, loves seducing them and earning their trust. He doesn’t like to keep them.
Until he meets Scarlet.
The chase has never been quite as intoxicating as it is with her, the feisty sub with an innocent streak a mile wide. And for the first time, he wants to keep her, but Scarlet already has a Dom, and Hunter has no intentions of giving her up.
Both Wolf and Hunter are in for a surprise when they realize Scarlet doesn’t want one of them.
She’s playing to keep them both.
