    I couldn't put it down.....the only reason I didn't read it in half a day is because I fell asleep, (do to exhaustion, definitely not the book). The book was a breath of fresh air, and just what I needed. The main characters, you can sympathize with, and the "asshole" you just want to punch. Do yourself a favor, rip a day out of the calendar, snuggle up on your couch with a blanket, tea/coffee and this book. I promise you will come out the other side, ready to take on the world.

    SHORT LIKE A NOVELLA The story was "cute" and sexy but I thought it should have been developed into a bigger story. The characters could each have had a better developed history. Having said that, I did love the three main characters (just have to include Axle!!) and would enjoy more of them. Was Axle always Gabe's? What was Vanessa ' s history? I did hate that stories are used as filler for 75% of this story that I have already bought, paid for, and read already.

    DNF at 10% Sigh, nope not my thing. I was lured in by the Beauty and the Beast theme and the scared vet. I hoped for vulnerability and deep connection. What I got was his big cock, him getting in fights, and her ex tiny peen. There might have been more to it if I'd stuck with it, but sometimes you just know a book isn't a good fit.

    Even though this had some promise, it fizzled to a predictable, trite mess. The fact that I have a companion Cleveland book on my reader - 'Tinder Ella' - makes me kinda' pissed for purchasing it. I'm going to see if I can get my dollars back from these (I bought them a while back, and may not be reimbursed). In any case, they will not be taking up storage on my Kindle...which reminds me; the story ended at 23% on my Kindle, followed by a ton of other shit that I won't be reading. Where the hell Even though this had some promise, it fizzled to a predictable, trite mess. The fact that I have a companion Cleveland book on my reader - 'Tinder Ella' - makes me kinda' pissed for purchasing it. I'm going to see if I can get my dollars back from these (I bought them a while back, and may not be reimbursed). In any case, they will not be taking up storage on my Kindle...which reminds me; the story ended at 23% on my Kindle, followed by a ton of other shit that I won't be reading. Where the hell do I begin? I had hopes for this, as I love the Beauty/Beast trope. This author didn't do it justice. Taking in how open and chatty Gabe was in the opening scene (in a sex club) between he and Vanessa, I thought that I'd have an interesting combo of sexiness and intellect with the guy. Nope. He ended up being bossy/semi-dominant, and not in a cool way, IMO. I didn't care for his brand of dirty talk either...it just seemed to come up out of nowhere, à la 'Yeah. You're my dirty bitch...choke on my ginormous cock'. Ugh. And Vanessa? She was likable at first, but she devolved as well. I can't say exactly what it was about her, but I ended up not liking her either. Well okay - a part of her was too damn eager to please Gabe and his ginormous cock. Other shit that I didn't like: *Too much sex and not enough story for most of the second half of the book. *Attempted buttsexx, then buttsexx later on. Yuck. *Rabbit-fucking, with no mention of birth-control, nor a condom in sight. Yet at one point, Gabe and Vanessa joke about tiny condoms. WTF? I skimmed the TWO epilogues, but got the gist that there would soon be half a dozen brats for this happy couple: My own mind travels to the future, one with Gabe in it and Axle as our furbaby, and maybe real babies of our own. Yippee. Axle was the best character in the book, and he was a three-legged dog. 1.5 stars.

    This book was loaded with steamy hotness! I mean, whew. I love how he found the girl who doesn't even see his or his dog's scars. I mean they still have things to get past, like her awful ex and the media. I loved the scene where they met! It was told in dual pov with a HEA. Eddie does romance and heat so well! I received an arc of this.

    I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. Yet another awesome book by Eddie! You are dragged in from the first page, by the end you never want it to finish. If i didnt have a list of other books to read i would have read it again i loved it that much. I love both Gabe and Vanessa, well written with beautiful chemistry. Brilliant storyline that has everything you need for a good book. I HIGHLY recommend it.

    Beauty and the Beast Retelling I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars. I, for one, love Beauty and the Beast. So reading a retelling, a steamy one at that, was pretty cool. While it was predictable, it still was a good read. Gabe and Vanessa, such a cute couple.

So, I have buyers remorse and worse yet - a distinct bad impression of the author based on this experience. The actual book was good, it was shorter than I wanted, but the characters were compelling, they were fun to read and had a unique story, but I wanted more and the ending didn't leave me 100% satisfied - it felt a bit rushed. Overall - it was ok, it was "readable" but it isn't my favorite or even on my top 10 list -

    Don’t judge a book by its cover! He’s scarred and feeling like no one sees him for who he truly is. Thrown away by his fiancée after his injury. It messed him up for future happiness. Then he found her. In of all places a strip club. She couldn’t take her eyes off the tall, built, muscular well endowed Gabriel. And their love was nothing they’ve ever felt before. I so loved the story of Gabe and Vanessa. Together they found true love and a beautiful future. Highly recommended.

    Here is some math: Title story length - 22% of the download. The rest are other stories. Story time - 20% Sex time - 80% Things that are going for Gabe beside the size of his enormous junk - 1 ( he owns Axel ) Things that are going for Vanessa beside her tits and ass - 1 ( she can cook) Shallow personalities - pretty much 95 % Number of characters that I liked - 1 ( Axel the dog ) Interest in reading past first story -0

    Okay but needs an editor The title story of this book was okay, if unbelievable, but it's in desperate need of an editor. The overuse of commas was disruptive to the flow of the story, and tense changed back and forth in a couple of places, both of which were distracting. I don't understand having the title story end at 23% while the rest of the book is unrelated filler stories that I may or may not want to read. They feel like spam-- not what I purchased or borrowed.

    This one didn't make me nearly as angry as Tinderella at least. Got a little tiring reading about these men's oh so big dicks every five pages. We get it, someone's compensating for something. And again, there's the use of the word "cum". *gag*

    HEART MELTING FIERY PASSIONATE ROMANCE I have read all of this author's books and loved each one, but this story took me by surprise. After spending twelve years in the Navy this author left to pursue his passion for writing. I have known many ex-military men who sport a tough as nails personality. Do I know this author personally, I don't but I would have to believe that he also sports a tough personality which is necessary to survive deployments and I appreciate that he served. So why is this i HEART MELTING FIERY PASSIONATE ROMANCE I have read all of this author's books and loved each one, but this story took me by surprise. After spending twelve years in the Navy this author left to pursue his passion for writing. I have known many ex-military men who sport a tough as nails personality. Do I know this author personally, I don't but I would have to believe that he also sports a tough personality which is necessary to survive deployments and I appreciate that he served. So why is this important to this story? Because he is a male/ex-Sailor writing romance, and I have learned from many friends that a lot of women shy away from male authors as they feel more comfortable reading female writer romance; this story is definitely a must read. Tough exterior/interior or not this author dug deep into his soul to create a stirring story that will melt your heart, make you laugh, and keep you intrigued until the end. This story is about accepting who you are, facing your fears and insecurities, and unconditional love. Inside this story; engaging characters, camaraderie, sexy flirtatious innuendos, action, gripping suspense, pent up emotions, fun times, phenomenal humor, dynamic vivid scene descriptions, sensuous passionate romance that leaves you breathless, back stories that give the reader insight to the characters, and a well deserved happy ever after when all the obstacles are laid to rest. From birth, Gabe was his mom's beautiful boy until a bomb on deployment as a Navy Seal left a hideous scar on his once beautiful face. Before his accident, his arrogant and vain behavior broke many hearts leaving women spellbound and wanting more from him. His fiancee ditched him as she could not stand the sight of him and he found all women cringed when they looked at him. Still sporting a smoking hot body he goes to sex clubs where the lights are dim and women only want what is between his legs. Vanessa, a brown-eyed curvy sassy beauty is at the sex club doing research for a movie she has the lead in. She also has an issue that haunts her; never has she reached sexual pleasure. Gabe is in awe as to the beauty he sees at the club. Walking towards her he wants to know more about her as heated desires swirl through him; but will she be able to see past the ugliness and give him a chance to prove he is more than just a sexy body? An impressive story that pulls the reader in, makes you feel and has you turning pages to learn what happens next. I am not a crier but I did well up with tears and laughed too. Both characters are certainly praiseworthy; Gabe proves to be quite the hero and Vanessa’s sweet nature sees past Gabe’s imperfection which reveals a beautiful loving soul. Their romance has a bit of drama, but it is genuine and filled with much devotion. I loved them together. Having read many Beauty/Beast stories, this is my fav so far. What I also love is the messages this author has in his stories; the messages here are to look beyond the flaws because what is inside a person is way more important than what you see, communication and true acceptance is pivotal in a long lasting loving relationship. If you treasure romance with a bad boy edge this is a terrific book for your library. I relished this story so (I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy.} Without, reservations, I recommend this book.

That ship has ⛵sailed. Then came the IED, and with that terrible explosion his vanity was drowned in a sea🌊 of scars. His face is no longer handsome👹on one side, there is a lot of scar tissue around one eye and back into his hairline. From a 👑King to a Jack🃏, Gabe is obsessed with his scarring now. The sex clubs🍌💋🌋 make it easy to find a woman💋 for a one 🌙night stand. He lives inside his loneliness. Nothing is darker than the sea🌊 at 🌙night. Gabe🐺🍌🌋🔥 begins to frequent the sex clubs🍌🌋🔥 to get his sexual fixes. There, he can parade himself, his huge tool🔨on display for women to see it all. Scars be damned. He's a predator, a killer land shark🐋 among schools of guppies.🐟 After a while he realizes that the people who frequent this type of club🍌🌋💋 are just as scarred as he is, except their scars are on the inside. He is still beached, struggling in shallow water🏊 to get back to the open sea.🌊 Vanessa is a young 🌟actress about to star in her first movie. It's about a woman💋 obsessed with sex🔥🍌🌋, a nymphomaniac. Vanessa is really a very shy woman, and she's never had an O!, but she has to do research like all method actors. She goes to the same sex club🍌🌋💋 where Gabe🐺🍌🌋🔥 hangs out. He picks her out of the crowd because its easy to see she doesn't belong there, she's nervous, she's staring. He's staring. At her. He must talk to her, get to know her.

Gabe🐺⚓🍌🌋🔥 comes complete with his scarred up bomb sniffer/guard dog, Axle, too. Sexual tension is high when he arrives at her house, they discuss why she was at the club🔥🍌🌋💋 and they are both getting turned on, when her agent calls with 👎bad news. Seems she is getting a new co-star 🌟 and it's her ex, a real jerk. How will she get through three months of filming doing sexual scenes🔥🍌🌋 with a man she can't stand to be around? Hmmmm...... I hope I was able to get enough navy⚓🚢 and water🌊 metaphors in here! FYI, MR Eddie, woah is Not a word. The correct word is WHOA! As in ✋ stop teasing me, you naaasssty🔥 bad boy🐺🍌🌋! YEHAW! Ride em Bareback🍌, Cowgirl!🐎🐎🐎🐎🐎 I have only one negative comment about the book. In my opinion, sex clubs are the domain of men. The only women that really enjoy those places are exhibitionists, those that want to see and be seen as ultra desirable. So, I thought when Gabe took Vanessa to the upscale sex club, he made a severe mistake. That was his scene, not hers. It's like a guy taking his dressed to the nines date into a dive bar. Yucky. Loved the book! I'm drowning🌊 in a sea of Eddie's sweet,hot 🔥naaasssty virtual ink...

This is a story of a former seal injured badly in Afghanistan by an IED that scarred his face and body. He’s a regular at a sex club in LA because he has something that directs total attention elsewhere than on his scarred face! No time for relationships; he just wants to feel he belongs somewhere. Talking to the bartender, Gabe admits that he’s bored – until the bartender points to a woman across the room that would be perfect for him. She looks nervous and out of place and he immediately feels a reaction to her. He sneaks up behind and whispers in her ear – which startles her into spilling her drink all over him. She distractedly runs her hand down his front to wipe it off and causes a reaction of another kind she hadn’t intended! Gabe offers to refill Vanessa’s drink if she’ll sit with him and chat. She’s grateful that he doesn’t recognize her. She’s an actress who just got a big role that she’s doing research for here at the club. As he asks her questions, she starts to relax. Two guys came over to her and Gabe steps up to protect her. While he lays them out, Vanessa runs out the side door. Her bodyguards, now unconscious, had told her the paparazzi tracked her down. She definitely did not want to be seen leaving a sex club! As she speeds away in her agent’s car, Gabe is not so lucky. He runs outside and the explosion of flashing lightbulbs trigger a momentary flashback to Afghanistan! He spots a cab and offers triple the rate to get out of there. And as they drive away, his thoughts are on Vanessa – a woman who looked at him and saw the real man inside. But how will he be able to find her again? This is a fantastic story! The characters are developed fully so that the reader immediately understands their issues and attitudes. The story line is fast, suspenseful, and intriguing! There is so much more ahead, and I urge you to grab the book and read all about it! You won’t be sorry, I promise!

So while at a club getting a drink at the bar the bartender points out a woman who looks a little lost. She is definitely Gabe's type so he goes over to talk to her and she accidentally spills her champagne all over him. So he sits her down at a table and gets her a new drink. They talk, he finds out her name is Vanessa and they are having a good time, then two guys come up to her and start whispering in her ear. Gabe gets upset and tells them to back off cause they were having a nice conversation. Gabe stands up and one of the guys gets in his face and he ends up knocking them both down. Vanessa ends up sneaking out the back door of the club and jumps in the back of the car that is waiting for her so the paparazzi doesn't get any pictures of her being at the club. Gabe ends up going home alone in just his underwear and is a little upset that he probably won't see Vanessa again. To Gabe's surprise Vanessa calls him the next day and asks him to come to her house to talk. Gabe thinks he's going to get lucky so he shows up at her house with a bottle of Dom Perignon. She invites him in and they sit down and she explains that she would like him to be her bodyguard because he is obviously better than the two guys the studio hired to protect her. She has him move in with her and somehow it comes out that she has never had an orgasm, not with someone or on her own. Gabe ends up taking her to a very exclusive sex club. Grab this book today to see if Gabe can give Vanessa her first "O" and to find out what else these two get up to. This is a great book and I definitely recommend it.

    Vanessa is Hollywood and stars in movies but never where she is the lead so when she finally gets her chance everything goes to hell when she finds out who her co-star is none other then her Ex. The thing is is that she has never had an orgasm so she decides to research the subject by going to a sex club where she meets Gabe a guy in white tightie whities. Gabe is used to the scene of going to sex clubs with no commitments as that is not how he does things anymore but when he starts to talk with Vanessa is Hollywood and stars in movies but never where she is the lead so when she finally gets her chance everything goes to hell when she finds out who her co-star is none other then her Ex. The thing is is that she has never had an orgasm so she decides to research the subject by going to a sex club where she meets Gabe a guy in white tightie whities. Gabe is used to the scene of going to sex clubs with no commitments as that is not how he does things anymore but when he starts to talk with Vanessa he can instantly see she is totally different from anyone he has ever meet before her. What I enjoyed most about They Beauty's Beast is watching two people who have been let down by others and that have some kind of scars they bear, while Gabes are from war hers are from Hollywood as being not thin enough, together they learn each other and that there is a soul mate for everyone in the world even the two of them, they learn to trust each other and enjoy each others company. Gabe shows Vanessa daily that she is beautiful as she is and she does the same when it comes with his scars and together they find what they always wanted together. This book was amazing, but every book by Eddie Cleveland is amazing so you cant go wrong. This book has Vanessa a woman trying to get her body and mind ready for this big movie role that is starting her but she has some reservations as she has never had an orgasm and this movie is about that, Gabe a man who lives life day to day and enjoys his time at sex clubs never expected to find his true love at a sex club, a love story with lots of ups and downs. If you like stories like this, then The Beauty's Beast is a must!

    Gabe/Beast is probably the only character I liked in the book. Oh and his dog Axle too. I loved Axle. Vanessa didn’t quite do it for me. She seemed too weak and scatterbrained even though I understand the insecurity part. She lives in L.A. for crying out loud where being skinny is praised while she has to lose her curves for a role I wish she’d just leave alone. Gabe loves her lush curves and shows her.

When Vanessa’s ex comes on the scene, the way she handles things made me want to throw my book down. Hasn’t Gabe been through enough? Even her friend bothered me. I think Fiona was ok as far as the “sidekick” friend, being outright and honest, but she had a one track mind and some of her advice was silly(one of them worked!). She smokes in cars too, so…yeah, not a good friend or person in general. I don’t know. But Gabe’s sensitivity, his past, and who is now is the saving grace of this book, some parts causing my eyes to water in sympathy for him. I like the tension build up to the sex scene, but I still think Gabe and Vanessa’s first time happened too quickly and was too public for a first time. Don’t get me wrong, the scenes are blazing hot in this book and the story itself was good, but as a whole, I think I was looking for something more drawn out and maybe a better female character? The author has some other books out with five stars though that look intriguing. I may check those out as well. Find more of my reviews on The Write Web

    A scarred former marine finds solace in a sex club in LA. It is the one place he can unwind without everyone staring at the scars on his face left from an explosion. Truthfully Gabe is lonely and closed off since his worthless fiancé left him soon after his accident. Her vanity would not allow her to love a disfigured man. When he sees Vanessa in the club looking like a lost puppy, he is immediately drawn to her. The fact that he is only wearing his underwear and a smile makes him quite a site.

When he sees Vanessa in the club looking like a lost puppy, he is immediately drawn to her. The fact that he is only wearing his underwear and a smile makes him quite a site. Apparently he is well endowed and in a sex club he is quite the catch. Vanessa is a budding actress on the cusp of her breakout role. She is technically doing research for her new role, but really she is on a mission to find her orgasms. This twenty-something gorgeous woman has never been to heaven. Her shyness is a turning for Gabe and he pursues her, not just for sex but there is something different about her. He actually wants to get to know her. Well the gods were favoring these two because this was meant to be. This story was a sweet and sexy ride in the Hollywood hills. The main characters were fun and flirty and quirky. The addition of Axel, a three legged dog who was also wounded in combat is awesome. Gabe and Axel make a great team and Vanessa takes to him like he was her own. I just love a happy ending!

    I loved this book! I repeat, I love this book! Eddie has done it again, he makes it so easy to fall in love with his characters. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Gabe once known for his good looks is adjusting to his "beast" look or so he feels from his ex-fiance and other females horrified reactions and turns to the club scene, dark lighting and minimum clothing to showcase his bulge, um, bulging physique takes the focus off his facial scars.

Gabe once known for his good looks is adjusting to his "beast" look or so he feels from his ex-fiance and other females horrified reactions and turns to the club scene, dark lighting and minimum clothing to showcase his bulge, um, bulging physique takes the focus off his facial scars. Vanessa is ready for her breakout role, taking her from the wise cracking sidekick/ best friends to the lead role, her biggest problem is the role is nothing like herself so she goes to a sex club for research. Gabe notices the fish out of water Vanessa and is drawn to her, she's is shock as she takes in the scene even more so when Gabe in only his tightie whities and beats down her bodyguards. She offers him a job of bodyguard, he wants to do lots of things with her body and none of those options have anything to do with guarding. I loved Vanessa's every real struggle with diet food and exercise as she tries to loose the "extra weight" the movie people feel she has. A jealous d-bag of an ex boyfriend, a movie script for the next fifty shades, a good agent and an ex Navy buddy all bring perspective to what flaws really are in this great read.

    Hottest scene of 2017 – amazing read!!! Vanessa has just landed a part as an actress that should launch her career and be personally satisfying. Her role as a nymphomaniac will require some research, as she has never personally achieved an orgasm. Gabe is a regular at the sex club; his scars from battle are not his most important feature in that environment. Vanessa’s obvious discomfort draws Gabe; and Vanessa reacts to Gabe as she has no other man. When he easily bests her bodyguards she ends up Hottest scene of 2017 – amazing read!!! Vanessa has just landed a part as an actress that should launch her career and be personally satisfying. Her role as a nymphomaniac will require some research, as she has never personally achieved an orgasm. Gabe is a regular at the sex club; his scars from battle are not his most important feature in that environment. Vanessa’s obvious discomfort draws Gabe; and Vanessa reacts to Gabe as she has no other man. When he easily bests her bodyguards she ends up firing them and hiring Gabe – with live-in privileges. When Vanessa admits the true reason she was at the club, Gabe offers to assist in her research. The scene which follows is the hottest one I’ve read this year; and per Goodreads I’ve read and reviewed 160+ books this year. Whew!! A fickle fiancé and a douchebag ex-boyfriend are some of the hurdles our main characters must overcome. They are raw, hurting and determined. We are drawn into their world in a brilliant manner by author Eddie Cleveland. These relatable, sexy and poignant characters will stick with you long after the story has ended. I need more than 5-stars for this one!! *** I am voluntarily leaving my honest review of this book ***

After his face was scared from the IED attack his birch of a fiance dumps him because he's not Gabe the Babe anymore. Then once he's recovered he's again turned off by the way women act around him. Vanessa an actress that's never had a staring role in a movie but has had a bit of success has her first chance at a major role. She's excited for the chance but doesn't feel that she can honestly play the part of a nympho because she's never had an orgasm. So she goes to a sex club to research. She meets Gabe at the club and she's instantly attracted to him and he feels the same. She's so shy though and Gabe has no clue who she even is. She ends up hiring him as her bodyguard and things progress from there. This is my first Eddie Cleveland book and boy does this man know how to write a steamy book!!! However, what is even better is I loved the story. I definitely understand Gabe and his feelings for being less than because of his scars. It's hard to move past that so I appreciate the way Eddie broke down the walls.
