Sleeping with the BeastSleeping with the beast Synopsis

Sleeping with the Beast

The war between Conduits and Supplicants is turned inside out when Charisse and Abram learn who’s in bed with who.

After narrowly surviving a murderous mob, curvy Conduit/Supplicant Charisse and alpha Beast Abram escape to the remote island of Grimoult, where their relaxing vacation soon turns into a sinister suicide mission.

People have been jumping from the island cliff in record numbers, but Charisse and Abram aren’t convinced these deaths are really suicides. Especially once they learn all the jumpers share the same dream-vision of a beautiful woman three days before their fall. Now it’s up to Charisse and Abram to find out what this “Sleeping Beauty” has to do with the suicides.

Their search for answers leads them to the island king’s castle, where the beauty and her beast find themselves at the mercy of a kinky ruler whose sexist mentality and BDSM fetishes soon begin to rub off on the pair. But time is cut short when Charisse sees Sleeping Beauty for herself, marking her as the next suicide victim and leaving her only three days until her death.

Blood will be spilled. Wars will be fought. Magic will be bartered.

Sleeping with the beast banshee's review

2155427 nude mermaid illustration in blue colors with shine effe Just a brief note: Sleeping with the Beast rated on the lower end of 4 screams, much for the same reasons Book 1 fell lower on the rating system than it should have. Lack of editing.

This book is mesmerizing, anytime I had to stop reading I thought about the book. When it was well into the wee hours of morning and I couldn’t fall asleep… it was because my mind was stuck on THIS book.

Initially I thought that Taken by the Beast would be a continuation of the Beauty and the Beast tale -because I very rarely read the synopsis on books in a series, it gives away too much. I was more than pleasantly surprised and really excited when Abram and Ms. Bellamy’s story took on another very well loved fairy tale curse. My exact words were: OMFsqueeG, NO WAY!!! The title is PERFECT! I may have also bounced a little in excitement, okay – it was more of a jump and a lot of it …. small details… 

The story was fantastic, fast paced, and compelling. I am excited for book 3, Charmed by the Beast, to release, but I expect to see much of the same from Hamilton & Kressley as far as editing faux pas go. Even with that said, I am looking forward to this next book. It is a fantastic read, there were many times I ignored my critical eye because I was so distracted by the story.

Rebecca Hamilton and Conner Kressley are great story tellers and writers, but they need to pay more attention to their end product’s readability. As far as I can tell this was a self edited piece, and while I am not opposed to self editing, I highly believe that a strong beta team should be in place.

All in all, Sleeping with the Beast was a fantastic read, it could use a good once over by both authors. Normally a written work with this number of errors irritates the hell out of the Banshee, but this piece had a strong and well written story line.
