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?

“—He makes me tingle and resembles a rude knight in shining armor.”
If you are looking for a good book to give you a giggle, you can’t lose with In Bed with the Beast. I guarantee that you will adore all three of the sweet, sassy and sexy ladies in The Naughty Princess Club. Belle was especially fun because she’s the innocent book nerd who works at a library. Who is more perfect to soften the heart of a grumpy beast?
When I first met Belle and Beast while reading At the Stroke of Midnight he was the lucky recipient of her first-ever angry outburst. The shy, quiet, timid librarian let it fly and set him straight. That was my first inkling that those two might be perfect for each other and I was excited at the possibility as I started mentally matchmaking. When I took a sneak peek on Goodreads at the title of the next book in the series I didn’t even have to read the synopsis to know what was coming. Yup, I felt the sparks, even then.
While I was sad for Belle when her overprotective father kicked her out, I was also thinking to myself that it was about damn time she grew up and spread her wings. I mean really, she’s twenty-five years old. Not that I’m judging her, I too was a book nerd that spent hours and hours alone reading when everyone else was out partying. But I wanted her to experience all the things she and I both missed out on. Somebody needs to experience the fairy tale, right?
While I can’t tell you too much, because it’s not my secret to tell, but I admit that I was surprised by the Beast. While I knew he was a man of few words, and those were usually growled rather than spoken, I wasn’t expecting what I eventually learned about him. Isn’t it awesome when that happens?
I really enjoyed watching Belle come out of her shell and the transformation of both her and Beast. As she got stronger he became more gentle, but only towards her. I could hear the “softness in his raspy voice” when he told her “you’re so weird.” And those girls…I laughed my ass off at their antics and banter, especially Ariel. I can see why the author saved her for last, that book’s gonna be a doozy and I can’t wait. The line forms here…
