    What a super cute book! If you read the first in the series, you got to know our shy, quirky librarian, Belle. She's the pretty girl that doesn't know she's pretty. She grew up sheltered with a single dad. She also grew up around books that may or may not have contributed to her awkwardness as she has grown into a 25 year old librarian who spouts off random facts when nervous. Pair her up with the jilted PTA mom, Cindy and the outrageous and slightly inappropriate, Arial and you have for a very entertaining group of friends. These three really were the most entertainment in book one but in book two we got to see more of a focus on Belle and Vincent. We get to see Belle grow from a shy, awkward girl into a more confident but still shy woman. As she is trying to gain confidence with men, Cindy and Ariel set her up on a bunch of blind dates. Vincent being the broody, growly man that he is, isn't too happy about Belle being in unsafe situations and can't stop butting into her dates. The author has spun this series into the modern day fairy tale theme. In the first book you have Cindy and PJ (Cinderella and Prince Charming). In book two, we have Belle and Vincent who is nicknamed Beast (Beauty and the Beast). And soon we will get book three with Ariel and Eric (Little Mermaid). If you love a book that makes you laugh like I do, I highly recommend this series. Tara Sivec really is the Queen of Romantic Comedy!

    Beauty and the Beast. What else needs to be said?

    In Bed With the Beast by Tara Sivec is Naughty Princess Club book #2. A contemporary retelling of Beauty and the Beast with Isabelle (Belle) Reading in need of money to keep her library going. She and her friends, Cin and Ariel start a stripping business to raise money. When her father kicks her out, Vincent "Beast" Adams takes her into his house, and he is just as big and growly as his name suggests. Told from Belle's perspective, she gains confidence and experience on her own out of her father's house and grows as a character. Vincent is definitely as possessive as you would imagine his character to be and as he and Belle spend more time together a romance between them grows. Overall I enjoyed In Bed With the Beast by Tara Sivec as a clever modern version of this classic story that has always been one of my favorites. These characters really are a "tale as old as time" and continue to be romantic and fun. (I voluntarily reviewed an advance review copy of this book I received for free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my open and honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.)

    Hilarious

    The hilarity of the Naughty Princess Club is back in full swing with this second book of the series. While this can be read standalone, I really think you will enjoy it more if you've read the first book in the series. This story has a Beauty and the Beast feel. The beauty is the nerdy librarian Belle. She's still living in her father's basement and holding on to her V card. When her father gives her an ultimatum of loose the new friends or else, Belle takes the or else road and moves out. Problem is she has no where to go. That's how she ends up sleeping in the library. That's were Vincent Adams finds her. Nicknamed the Beast he's gruff and surly and may just be what Belle needs to get a little life experience. These two work well together. He educates her on the ways of the world and she seems to smooth his rough edges. Could these two really make a go of things or has this all been one big joke? Don't miss this fun enjoyable read. I recommend it.

    Cute retelling of classic w? some good Sivec humor

    I’ve enjoyed this author’s books in the past, especially her brand of humor, and was in the mood for something a bit lighter. I’ve always thought the twist on a well-known fairytale is an interesting trope, and was really looking forward to how Miss Sivec would spice up Beauty and the Beast while making me laugh. Although I did enjoy this and I laughed at a good number of parts, I have to admit I was a bit underwhelmed. In Bed with the Beast is the second book in the Naughty Princess Club but can easily work as a standalone, which is how I read it. When I started the book, I found myself giggling and smiling, thinking the opening scene was promising both in the plot and humor-wise. And for the most part, the plot was pretty good and an interesting riff on a well-known fairytale. I love the idea of The Naughty Princess Club, and I loved the idea of Belle being the hot but nerdy librarian, but it just failed to really catch fire for me and I really lost interest by the second half of the book. Miss Sivec is known for her crazy, sometimes outlandish humor and I’m generally willing to roll with the ridiculous when it’s just too funny. This time it felt a little forced compared to this author’s other romantic comedies. I also didn’t quite connect fully with Belle, maybe she was a bit too innocent and naïve for my tastes, and found Vincent (Beast) to lack in depth. So despite a strong and promising start, this ended up being a miss for me in a few different areas. I think if you’re a fan of this author or retelling of fairy tales and are looking for a breezy, light book, In Bed with the Beast may be just the ticket. *eARC received via Netgalley.

    Swoon with me

    Chocolate Lovers meets Wish You Were Mine... If you are a Tara Sivec fan, you will see that this book is a combination of of Wish You Were Mine meets The Chocolate Lovers series between the sexual angst and the humor. Belle is hands down my favorite character. We get to see a whole new side of her in this book than we did in the previous book. It was such a fun ride watching her get her "dea legs". Vincent. Swoon. Just a little. Okay, maybe a lot. His take charge, no nonsense, yet teddy bear personality is just what Belle needs to really find herself. This one is part swoon-worthy, part hilarious, and part sexual frustration on a stick. I didn't know whether to laugh, sigh, or yell from start to finish. I couldn't get enough of this book. If you are looking for your next laugh out loud love story, look no further. I am not even sure why you are reading my words instead of Tara's words.
