by Sydney St. Claire



Rancher Caitlin Olsen is in complete control of her life. After years of taking care of others, she’s on her own and loving every minute. She has her horses and her ranch. What more does she need? Yet deep inside, she yearns to give up all her responsibilities and simply experience life. When a friend suggests she try a bit of BDSM role-play, she does her research and accepts an invitation to Pleasure Manor for a fairy tale event.

War hero and Dominant, Damon Steele is a loner. His failure to keep his men alive destroyed too many hopes and dreams. He won’t be responsible for anyone else’s life or happiness ever again. There’s no room in his life—or his heart—for romance. Instead, he satisfies his needs at BDSM clubs and never with the same sub. Taking part in the fairy tale event at Pleasure Manor is difficult enough, but when Beauty challenges him both in the bedroom and out, he’s not sure he can control his inner beast.



She licked her lips, suddenly nervous again. How did a person begin a cold turkey sexual fling? She didn’t engage in one-night stands, always dated and got to know her past lovers first. “I’m Caitlin. I’ve never been here before. What now?”

He inclined his head. “I’m Damon. I’ll be your Dom for the weekend. Find the X on the floor and stand on it.”

Damon. To tame. Oh, yes, she wanted to tame her beast. Like a flame set to gas-soaked briquettes, his gaze on her breast, along with his sexy, deep baritone voice, ignited the ball of lust swirling in her center.

Whew, this won’t be so bad. In fact, if she hadn’t been cuffed, she might have jumped him, tumbled them both onto the couch.

He snapped his fingers, bringing her back to the here and now. “First rule. I don’t give instructions more than once. Do as I ordered.”

The lust in her veins cooled and once again, indignation threaded with anger took hold. “Excuse me?” No one had ordered her around since she was thirteen and assumed the role of parent to her younger siblings and caregiver to her mother.

“Your choice is to obey or leave. If you want to leave, I’ll remove the cuffs and let Hastings arrange for you to be taken home.”

Go before she sampled this hunk? Nope. No matter how much she hated being told what to do. Her curiosity was piqued, and her body ached to have this man kiss her. And fuck her like a stallion claiming his mare. This Belle wanted her Beast.

MY REVIEW: 5 stars, a delectable weekend treat sure to turn you on

This might be the 4th book in the series, but they keep getting hotter. All the stories take place at Pleasure Manor during a fairy tale weekend. One of the things I enjoy about the series is that all the stories take place at the same time, you just get different versions of the weekend’s bliss. Each story is quite different and it doesn’t feel like everything is repeated or recycled. The beast in this tale is a war hero who struggles with nightmares and guilt over a mission gone wrong. He’s talked into the weekend to introduce a new sub to the lifestyle. Caitlin is always in control as a ranch owner, and she wants something exciting in her sex life. This story is a bit more compelling and dark with the tortured hero at the helm. The dom and sub didn’t know each other before the event, as with the previous couples, which provided a nice change to the story lines. It is fun to see the other characters from the other stories appear, but this time, we got a peek at a few other matches. (I’m guessing the next story will be Rapunzel’s). Beauty and the Beast has always been my favorite fairy tale, which I think helped make this my favorite in the series so far. It seemed to have a little more depth, especially after the weekend was over. The connection between Damon and Caitlin is intriguing, compelling, and so hot. There is a nice balance between the tortured beast and  the fun beauty. Caitlin’s friend (who convinced her to particiapte) told her that “orgasms are handed out like candy at Halloween” so the bedroom play becomes a trick or treating feast of candy treats. I enjoyed having the lighter side to balance the beast. I loved the story, and didn’t want it to end. I can’t wait to see what comes next. If you are looking for something quick, sexy, delectable, and fun with an excellent taste of BDSM, this is a must-read series. Keep a spare pair of panties, a vibrator, or a partner nearby while reading these books. You’ll need a release a few times during and after reading.

I received a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.

      • Sydney! Thanks for stopping by. I love these stories. They are my crack. <3

        Kim, my reviews are always much better when I love the stories. I struggle when I didn't think the book was anything special. For me, this series falls into "I will drop anything else to read them." I refuse to read things from various points of view. I won't read Four from the Divergent series; I didn't care that Stephenie Meyer wanted to write from Edward's POV; I won't be reading Grey. But this series doesn't feel like it's retelling a story. They are different couples all at the same event, so while certain things overlap, it is minimal, and they are all equally enjoyable.
