Beast by A. Zavarelli
Genre: Dark Romance
Series: Twisted Ever After #1
A standalone with HEA
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.
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.

Now I know why the Caged Bird Sings
But a bird that stalks
down his narrow cage
can seldom see through
his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and
his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.
The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.
Isabella Rossi has been caged
By her talent and then by her father and then by her abductor -Javier Castillo
I don’t wanna give away the story.
It’s a major,dark twist to the Beauty And The Beast.
It’s a Perfect Storm Of Circumstances!
The first 50% of the story moves very , very slowly
It spikes in speed and like a box thrown down the stairs somersault a lot.
There’s three parallel tracks running .
The story has darker elements that can act as triggers.
They didn’t bother me though.
Too Mild for me.
The only botheration was single sentence format.
That annoyed me a lot
The plot was very attractive , very John Le Carrè.
In fact the last 20% of the story actually made me draft my review
Now the feels
The mood was grim , dark and hopeless.
In the first half I had trouble connecting.
The latter half I latched on and it became interesting
River’s character was most surprising .
Although had a very hard-to-believe twist.
I loved the ending .
Almost gave me a heart attack
Hope you get the irony :p

****Please read the warning…. if you are not into dark books, this book IS NOT for you****
What a take on Beauty and the Beast!! While the thought is the same the story is totally different!
Isabelle is a rising superstar in the music industry. This time of her life should be full of happiness and rewards. Till the day Javi she finally meets Javi.
Javi is a BEAST! Living the life of HELL. But he has set his eyes on the one who he hears singing only for him.
When the two Belle and Beast get together, its dark.
The last 20-25% of the book was the best. It explains a lot. But you must get there first before learning some important information.
While I stayed engrossed in this book from page 1 to the last, the writing style of this book drove me bonkers. Single Sentence format. I couldn’t get over it.
There are many unanswered questions for me. Even after processing the book for a couple days, I continue to think of more.
