GENRE: Erotic Paranormal
SOURCE: Purchased
LINKS: Goodreads

In exchange for her father’s life, Amarantha agrees to marry the dreadful Beast and be his wife for seven days. Though the Beast cannot take Amarantha’s virginity unless she begs him to, he can and does take her in every other way. From the moment they are alone together, the Beast relentlessly strips Amarantha of all her resistance. If Amarantha can resist her cloaked and terrifying husband, she gains his entire fortune and will be allowed to return to her family and a normal life. But the Beast seduces her at every turn, exposing, binding, tormenting, and pleasuring Amarantha until she no longer knows her own deepest desires. Increasingly desperate to break the curse that chains his humanity, the Beast drives Amarantha past every boundary. But her desire for a normal life may jeopardize the love that will save them both.


I think Beauty and the Beast is one those stories that always captivated me the most. When I was a kid my mum used to tell me the original story and I was passionately enchanted by it every time. Now many years have passed, could I honestly have ignored an erotic adaptation of this classic tale?

"Petals and Thorns" is a fast read but a so very enjoyable one. Jeffe Kennedy uses the perfect mix of sensuality and eroticism in this twisted fairytale that makes you pant in pleasure and keeps you craving to see what punishment is waiting for Amarantha next... "Which part was play and which part my punishment?"... Believe me, you will drool over this question and more. Torture, seduction and desire, if I loved the Beast before (yes, I always preferred the Beast to the Prince and I'm not ashamed to admit that), now I'm a huge fan!
