In Bed With The Beast by Tara Sivec Review

4.5 Smooches


A tale as old as time: she needs a place to stay, he’s a grump with a secret and an extra room…can love find a way?

Meet the Naughty Princess Club, a series from USA Today bestselling author Tara Sivec that brings readers to Fairytale Lane and the hilarity—and romance—that three women fall into once they decide to strut their stuff and bring on their own happily ever after.

Living in her overprotective dad’s basement, shy Belle lives her life through books. Being a part of the Naughty Princess Club is the first adventure she’s ever had, plus she desperately needs the money to save one of her favorite places – the local library.

But when her new friends and new business gets her kicked out of her dad’s house, Belle is rescued by the surly Vincent “Beast” Adams who invites her to be his house guest until she gets back on her feet. Despite his attitude problem and long list of rules, Belle finds herself warming to the muscled man with a penchant for growling and starts seeing a gentle side to him that wasn’t there before.

Yet there’s a room that Beast keeps locked and Belle keeps getting hints that Beast is hiding something…can a nerdy librarian tame the beast or will their romance be over before it has a chance to blossom?


In Bed With The Beast is the second book in the Naughty Princess Club series by Tara Sivec and is filled with just as much ridiculous fun as the first. I have to say I think this might be my favorite int he series, though I’ll wait for Kiss The Girl to call it. But then again I have always been a big fan of Belle!

A shy librarian stripper and a brute of a strip club bouncer make for quite the pair. When these two opposites become roommates they couldn’t be more different. Their attraction is obvious but something is keeping them from acting on it. I loved how he brought out the spunk in her and she found the softness in him. They really were a perfect pair.

The series as a whole has to be taken with a sense of humor and fun. You can’t take it too seriously or it’ll end up losing some of its whimsy. While a tad silly it is full of a ton of heart, some amazing female friendships, and heroes who are more than they appear. A great escape from reality!
