Review: Beast Parts 1-3 by Ella James

At twenty-one years old, third-generation movie star Cal Hammond was on top of the world. He had more money than God and more women than any man could need. But when a night of debauchery ends in tragedy, he forfeits a life of luxury for a ten-year prison sentence at La Rosa, California’s most violent prison.

Eight years later, a ruthless, cunning man runs La Rosa from the inside. He is known simply as BEAST. All the wardens fear him. All the gangs obey him. He speaks to no one but his inner council. What he says is law.

Annabelle Mitchell’s father is the warden at La Rosa. He deals as dirty as his trustees, and after years of smooth relations with Beast and the gangs he runs, Holt lands on the powerful prisoner’s hit list. That very afternoon, Annabelle pays a surprise visit to her father’s work, hoping to use her new counseling license at a place she thinks she could make a difference. When she catches Beast’s eye, he releases the warden and grabs the daughter. The price for the warden’s error is not death. It’s his precious Belle.

Continue the dark, erotic journey of Annabelle, the warden's daughter, and the man she's pined for since her girlhood. No longer Cal Hammond, actor, Beast is a brutal man who runs the prison's gangs from behind a shroud of secrecy and lies. Can Annabelle's love save him from his tainted past, or will his deceit ruin both of them? 

*Beast 2 is a serial novella. If you don't like novellas, or reading stories in installments, this probably isn't for you. It deals with intense subjects and features absolutely panty-melting sex. If you're on a bus, in the subway, in your office, or babysitting innocent children, I'd advise you to read this story later. If you just can't wait, be warned. Beast will make you wet. 
*Part 3 will be out September 8. 
*This story will be either three parts or four parts.

Return to La Rosa Prison as Annabelle tries to save Beast from his grizzly fate. Her tongue and hands are doing most of the saving. 
Okay, not really. 

There's suspense and a healthy dose of smut, too. You know that's how you like it...

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

From the very beginning I was enchanted by this beautifully written fairytale by Ella James, Beast.  The characters were cast out of this fanciful story and thrown into a modern day setting is nothing short of whimsical!  Ella James recreated the story with a twist and I must say it will draw you in immediately and captivate you until the very end. 

Part 1:

Oh, the webs we weave...Annabelle Mitchell has been in love with the famous actor Cal Hammond since forever.  Now she finally gets a chance to meet him in person at a party on her seventeenth birthday.  Smitten from the moment she laid eyes on him, Annabelle knew that she wanted Cal. 

Cal Hammond a famous actor, whom everyone wants, is lonely to his core.  Only a chance meeting with a young girl who sparks an interest in him changes his path dramatically.  After having a taste of the beautiful girl, he leaves her wanting for more. 

After the party, Cal and his friends are in a fatal car accident that sends his world into a tailspin.  The only thing that keeps him from dying is the image of his "Eighteen" and now "Angel". 
However, when reality catches up, Cal finds himself in jail and known as the enigmatic Beast. 

When Cal and Annabelle's paths cross again in the prison her step-father works in, Annabelle is thrown into his world again. 

Part 2:

Annabelle makes the only choice she can, accept what Beast (Cal Hammond) has to offer.  A no strings attached relationship where he uses her for his pleasure.  Oh there is pleasure for her as well, but now she just wants to save him.  With her mother dying and trying to take care of her little sister as well, Annabelle decides that whatever it takes, she will help him. 

Beast wants his Angel.  He will have her anyway he can.  But he is hiding something as well.  He's not called the Beast in prison for nothing.  Cal has done some horrible things and wishes to forget it all by becoming a monster.

Part 3:

Struggling to make sense of everything that has happened, Annabelle relegates herself to hiding and trying to find a way out of the prison.  Caught in the storm of the Beast she must make some hard choices. 

Finding Beast in the worst way, Annabelle makes the decision that she will stick by him no matter what comes.  She longs to save him from himself and all that's horrible in the world. 

All three novellas kept me on the on the edge, needing more, wanting more!  In the pivotal ending, I was drowning in my own longing to see what would happen next.  The creative genius of this author commandeered my senses and left me breathless.  I anxiously await the final chapter in this erotic fairytale.  You make me believe in fate, Ella!  ~TSRBR
