Review: Beast by A. Zavarelli


Beast is book one in the Twisted Ever After series by A. Zavarelli. This book drew me in from the first page and owned me. By the time I was done with it, I was emotionally drained and in need of buying more Kleenex.

Beast is definitely not your mother’s fairy tale! It was dark, pervertedly sexy and left me breathless.

Javier suffered terrible abuse at a young age, he’s used to the pain, finds comfort in it. It’s part of life for him. When he sees Belle for the first time, he knows she’s different. He wants to break her and keep her at the same time.

He is focused on revenge. Wronged by the man he cared for like a father, he sets out to hurt him by breaking his only daughter. And break her he did.

Kept in a gilded cage first by her father and now by her captor, Isabella struggles with the perverse feelings that the pain inflicted by Javi gives her. It’s a release of sorts. And she finds herself while getting to know the true beast, she is also falling in love with him.

“Javi is the poison I drink so willingly because nothing else has ever tasted so sweet. He is everything. The light and the dark. The solace and the pain. The torment and the peace.”

There are scenes in this book that may shock you. It is a work of fiction thought up by the wonderful devious mind of an author that is sweet as candy. How she comes up with this stuff baffles me. But I love her darkness. It feeds my soul.

Once upon a time, I believed in fairytales.
But then he took me.
And he taught me that life isn’t a fairytale.
He is scarred. Broken.
A dark and wild thing.
His beauty is violent and his words are cruel.
His heart is a shadowed landscape where nothing can grow.
He tells me he could never care for me, and he proves it every day.
He’s destroyed my life.
Tortured me.
And worse…
He’s trained me to beg for his affection.
This prison is a place where sunlight doesn’t reach.
He taught me that hate is born in darkness.
And then he taught me that sometimes love is too.
