This book is absolutely hilarious. Repeatedly. I maybe even snorted a few times.
The best part is the 3 women, who are all very different, and how they develop such an odd friendship. I adore that, far more than even the actual romance part, though wow. It’s scorching and spicy on the Cinderella & Prince Charming front.
Also, I obviously love the fairytale retelling. I confess I’ve never read a fairytale retelling that was so . . . shall we say risqué and indelicate? Okay, it’s actually more like bawdy, in a very in your face sort of way that is so shocking and always funny.
Woot! I think that’s the first time I’ve ever worked the word bawdy into a review before, but I just looked it up to be sure, and it describes this book exactly:
“Bawdy: dealing with sexual matters in a comical way; humorously indecent.”
This is delightfully bawdy! Feel free to quote me on book covers.

This is ridiculously delightful, especially for a librarian who grew up watching Beauty & the Beast. Belle puts all her money into trying to save her library, until a disagreement with her father leaves her homeless and sleeping in the library.
Intro Beast. He’s gruff. He’s bossy. He’s mysterious, and he loves books. Mix that together with some ridiculous shenanigans by the gals of the Naughty Princess club, and this book is as hilarious and unexpected as book one.
Tara Sivec is a wizard with characterization. She has such dynamic characters, and they never cross that borderline into feeling like caricatures. I’d pretty much read anything about these 3 women, even if there was no real plot.
