The tale of sleeping beauty through out history has been the muse of countless paintings, movies, plays, and fashion photo shoots. The princess has memorized all of us with her renowned beauty and magical circumstances of sleeping a hundred years under a spell that could only be broken by a prince’s true love kiss. Anne has taken the magical moment of the first kiss and turned it into something dark and fierce. No sweet tender kisses here the prince was there to claim her and he did just that. He claimed her and stole her naked back to his homeland as his new personal sex slave. I wish I could go into more detail but it is just too graphic for this blog because I do have YA readers. This is anything but the Disney version of Sleeping Beauty.
2/5 why the two you ask? The two for me is only because it was just too violent for me. I can do graphic sex but I could just barely stomach the degradation of S and M that sweet Beauty and others were subjected to. I believe that if the read had a bit more of the personal aspects of the characters especially the Prince then maybe the violence might not have bothered me so much. It was just too much pain and no rewards.
I do have to admit I liked it and will be reading the two other books in the series. It was like watching a train wreck happening before my eyes I just could not bring myself to look away. I finished the read in one night. It left me feeling with the need to find out if Beauty was ever released would she ever get to exact revenge for what was done to her. I hated it that he took her clothes and kept her naked all the time, poor Beauty. I can not recommend this book to everyone; I for one know this not a book I could discuss with my mother. This read is NOT for everyone but if you think you can stomach the erotic S and M I say go for it you might just like it.
FTC-This is my personal book
