    1 thought on “Loving an Ugly Beast

    1. Loving an Ugly Beast by Danielle Monsch was a riot This is a Beauty and the Beast fairy tale rewrite Although it is set in the woods, and appears to be in a long ago time, the dialog is all current vernacular Took me a couple of pages to catch the flow of that, and then I laughed.Nissa is a very plain woman People don t even see her, that s how plain she is She has in love with Benton He s a huge man, covered in scars, who rarely speaks than a word or two But there s something about him, someth [...]

    2. This was a fun little story I love fairy tale relabellings, and this one I read in one sitting.Nissa is a plain girl, with a dark past She s attracted to the local beast, but feels that he doesn t desire her back Little does she know that he makes a deal with a fairy to get rid of his scars, so he can feel worthy of her He s then changed into a beautiful man a girlie man if you will.When I heard beautiful man, this was who I first pictured I really enjoyed the chemistry between the two character [...]

    3. 4 starsI really enjoyed this short story.I must be one of the very few people in this world that has not seen the movie Beauty and the Beast, I know the story line but for some reason never seen it.This story by Danielle Monsch takes that plot line and twists things, it had me feeling all kinds of emotions I even found myself crying at one stage If you love Beauty and the Beast you will enjoy Loving an Ugly Beast The characters touch your heart and if you are like me you will totally fall for th [...]

    4. I really enjoy the Beauty and the Beast theme about how two people save each other It s the same plot done and re done Except this one isn t It s Beauty and the Beast X 2 You have to read it to understand.It was funny, it was touching The fairy godmothers are a riot I loved how the story had to have taken place in the 1800 s, but used modern dialogue, modern terminology, and discussed all sorts of things sexual in a very modern way I know they didn t have some of those words back then And at tim [...]

    5. Benton is the beast of this story, his not really a beast, his scarred Benton has a hot body and is strong, he is also sweet when people get to know him but uses his scars to scare some people Nissa is a plain jane wth a beautiful soul and kind personality.These two live in a village in the woods and that s all I can tell you about their hometown Its also set in a place where there is no technology, so in the past or as it states fairy tale the language used is in the story is up to date and the [...]

    6. I needed some fresh air from what I usually read, I love dark, sexy stories and I don t hide that my favorite genres are PR, Erotica, Romantic Suspense, and some Romance, but sometimes I like to wonder off to other realms.From the author Danielle Monsch comes a book that in one sentence could be described as the beauty is in the eye of the beholder A sweet historic romance set in the country, where tortured souls try to start fresh and have their happily ever afters.Known as Beast in his village [...]

    7. Loving an Ugly Beast by Danielle Monsch was cute, spicy, funny and warm, all while teaching a lesson about believing in true love and accepting yourself as worthy of love Nissa is a plain spinster teacher with a heart of gold Benton is a huge, powerfully built, yet terribly scarred and reclusive man Their mutual attraction is obvious to everyone, except each other Enter the saucy little Fairy Godmother, granting Benton s wish to be as handsome and as perfect as he thinks Nissa deserves Of course [...]

    8. We all know the story of Beauty and the Beast In fact, it s one of my favorite fairy tales Ever So when this story came across my feed, I jumped at the chance to read it.I wasn t disappointed.Monsch has created a unique twist to the traditional story by having a beast and a rather pinch faced beauty Both are in love with the other but neither could imagine such a beauty falling for their beastly selves So when the beast is offered the opportunity to become a beauty, he jumps at it in order to wo [...]

    9. New retelling of the classic beauty and the beast, in the short story version for adults.He may be a Beast Known as Beast in his village for both his hulking size and multitude of scars, Benton long ago resigned himself to a life without love and was content with his solitary existence That is until Nissa entered his life.but she is no Beauty.Plain and plain spoken, Nissa came to the village three years ago looking for a fresh start and a quiet life She had both until the day her friend Benton d [...]

    10. I found this to be a quick enjoyable read, I read it in one sitting whilst wasting time at the hospital I found Nissa to be funny, loyal and very likable and Benton to be what any leading male should be I thought it was funny that when his wish was done, he changed from being a huge, strong male to being smaller and almost feminine The catch at the end with Nissa also having had a wish was an interesting turn I liked that Benton wanted to protect her even from her past I think Danielle has writt [...]

    11. Very enjoyable light read.I m a sucker for stories that retell fairytales in a fresh, engaging way.I m an even bigger sucker for stories about a hero who pines away silently while being a big bad scary beast to everyone else but his beloved.Ms Monsch did an amazing job on both of these scores and I immediately went and bought another story set in the same world, and another set in a futuristic world another favorite of mine.As is usual with fairytales, there is a moral at the end of the story an [...]

    12. Wow Another HOT captivating fractured fairy tale I didn t want to put it down This book is a re telling of the story of Beauty and the Beast Nissa has fallen in love with Benton and he with her Nissa, though, is plain and doesn t think that Benton could ever fall in love with her AND Benton thinks of himself as the Beast and doesn t think that Nissa could ever care for him that way When Benton s fairy godmother offers him one wish, Benton wishes to be an attractive man His wish is granted, but w [...]

    13. I liked this short story Loving An Ugly Beast is a fun retelling of Beauty and the Beast.I loved how the story had to have taken place in the 1800 s, but used modern dialogue, modern terminology, and discussed all sorts of things sexual in a very modern way Nissa is a plain waitress while Benton is a manual laborer with emotional insecurities about his looks He gets a wish from a fairy godmother to be handsome in order to entice Nissa, who already loves him the way he is, to marry him There are [...]

    14. I liked this book It was a quick read for me There is Magic and it made me wish it was real I really cared for the characters Their emotions grabbed you up and made you want to yell at them to stop acting so dumb I guess if there is a moral to this story it would be for people to tell the ones they love their real feelings Reading this dragged all my emotions out happy, sad,angry and best of all loving Sometimes I wish there was real Magic like this but then if everyone could use it, it would no [...]

    15. Nissa could use one word to describe herself, plain, she just simply was If Nissa had to use a word to describe her best friend Benton, it would be beautiful, but Benton would describe himself differently as a beast riddled with his over sized body and scars Benton gets a chance, thanks to a fairy godmother to become ideal man, which he thinks Nissa wants, but he is so wrong and now must decide to do what is best for Nissa despite his insecurity of losing her forever.Full review on Sensual Revie [...]

    16. Netgalley readThe beast of a man, Benton, wants to make himself attractive to the woman he has a secret passion for and has his wish granted by Sara the fairy godmother, he can not reveal himself or he would revert back to the way he use to be.Nissa is keeping secrets she has hidden that she has the same feeling for Benton but there is a twist to her story as well But with all Fairy Godmothers involved in a story they get their HEA.This quick story was just an OK below average read for me, woul [...]

    17. I love remade Fairy Tales and this novella was a really nice version of my favourite one In this case the story was a very warm, sweet one about believing in Love and your own self worth The characters were very real, especially the cranky pregnant friend She made me think of myself when I was pregnant D and I really liked the Hero.

    18. Full of sizzling heat and raw emotions, Loving an Ugly Beast is an alluring take on the Beauty the Beast mythology Full review available at romanticreadsandsuch.wordpress

    19. I was looking for a short read that I could finish on a plane flight, and this book was perfect The hero and heroine were very likable It was fun seeing them get to their HEA Sweet and entertaining

    20. They call him the beast for his hulking figure and his many scars, but his taciturn, solitary nature hides a big heart that beats for one woman only his friend, the only one who doesn t look at him with disgust or pity, Nissa She might be plain, but she s prefect to him, yet he knows she ll never love him So he quickly jumps at the opportunity to be different in order to woo her.Fairy Godmother Sara grants him his wish and turns him into beautiful Byron, a man women fight overExcept Nissa, who m [...]

    21. Honestly, I was going to give this story 4 stars, it was that good and much better than the first one i read from this author, LOVING A FAIRY GODMOTHERor was it GODFATHER Anyways, what put me off was a man s response to the rape of his girl and his friend s response to said rape 2 wrongs don t make a right, no matter how traumatic and shattering a rape isAnd no one ever referred to the second wrong again What a cop out.Other than that, I loved the story.

    22. seriusly what NOT to love about this one , i mean sure the H and h has a little of issues with self esteem but of course they do with all the people around you saying you are a beast or ugly what do you want anyway it has HEA no cheating , a little of drama and healing of the H and h is GOOD read it

    23. ahHow I love fairy tale retellings.This one was a pretty good one retelling of Beauty and the Beast but with a twist , I really enjoyed it.4 5 stars

    24. Benton wants nothing than he wants Nissa He doesn t care that no one else thinks she is beautiful She is beautiful to him, but she doesn t deserve a scarred beast such as him When a crazy old woman comes to him declaring herself his fairy godmother, he goes along with her talk What s the harm He agrees that having Nissa would be his greatest wish and that the only way to achieve that would be for the beast to disappear and if he were handsome, he could win her heart.The fairy godmother grants h [...]

    25. Nissa and Benton have been in love with each other for a few years and are best friends, but neither one has the courage to act on their feelings until the Fairy Godmother comes to intervene.This was like a reverse Beauty and the Beast and then reversed again This story is all about inner beauty and how it can overcome our own perceptions of ourselves and others There are times when I thought the story was a little shallow but it quickly redeemed itself SEX I really wanted a little dirty langua [...]

    26. This is a fairly short story in the Beauty and the Beast vein, with a fairy godmother strand woven in this is the first BatB I ve read with fairy godmother involvement As with all BatB retellings the moral is all about how beauty is not skin deep However, in this book both characters were in love with each other from before the story starts, they just didn t know how to express their feelings.In the story, a fairy godmother intervenes and grants Benton Beast his wish, to be handsome so that Niss [...]

    27. My Rating 2.5 5A little conflicted on this one I liked this book It was okay, a nice read But, I didn t love it.I liked the character Nissa and Benton were both great, very likable But, they were incredibly stubborn at the worst times and it was a little frustrating Nonetheless, I still liked them.I really liked their relationship They were in love from the beginning and it didn t matter what form either one took They adored each other regardless It was so sweet and the sparks between these two [...]

    29. Loving an Ugly Beast should have been a better read for me It had all of the elements to make it a very fun and enjoyable story, it s an adaptation of my favorite fairy tale Beauty and the Beast and the author had some creative ideas to twist the story and make it unique from other retellings Unfortunately what killed this book for me were the failures in execution that overwhelmed what should have been a charming story about loving a person s real beauty.Nissa and Benton are very good friends w [...]
