Publisher's Summary

Prince Christopher is as conceited as he is handsome. After his overwhelming ego offends an evil sorcerer, Christopher is robbed of the source of all his arrogance: his looks. Transformed into a hideous beast, Prince Christopher has only a limited time to fulfill a near-impossible condition or the curse will remain with him forever.

Bobby Farmer is a stunning and innocent twink. When Bobby's father is imprisoned as a trespasser at Prince Christopher's castle, Bobby offers himself in his father's place, and Prince Christopher accepts the brave young man's deal.

It isn't long before a friendship begins to blossom between the happy-go-lucky Bobby and the newly-humbled Prince. Friendship isn't enough to lift the sorcerer's shapeshifting curse, and unless Prince Christopher can win Bobby's heart, his fate will be sealed.... But as the Prince-turned-beast wonders, how can a man whose beauty is more than skin-deep ever come to love a creature such as himself?

    Story
    "A twist on the common fairy tale"
    What made the experience of listening to Bobby and the Beast the most enjoyable?

    Ms. Woods did a good job narrating this story. You would think as this is a story about 2 men that they would have chosen a male narrator. Ms. Woods was able to bring all the emotion needed and her male voices were full and rich. I look forward to listening to more of her work


    Any additional comments?

    Bobby and the Beast is a twist on the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast. In this telling, Bobby is in the role of Beauty. When his father is kept prisoner by the Beast, Bobby agrees to take his place if the Beast will release his father. The Beast agrees. While staying at the castle, Bobby sees the true inner Beast and comes to see the good in him.

    This tale is true to the original story with some twists. I enjoyed how Mr. Pace was able to do this. The story could have used a little more depth but all in all it was enjoyable. I look forward to reading more of Mr. Pace's work.

    I received this book from the author, narrator or rights holder in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "Meaty! (no pun intended!)"

    This story was so much more than a retelling of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. It was deeper and richer and the writing was smart and thoughtful. Smart! The reader was excellent and certainly performed above any I've heard before. How she kept all the characters and voices separate was amazing.
    This was a true tale of what love is, and what love isn't. We should all take note.
    Well done, Mr. Pace! It is uniquely your own, and to be able to accomplish that without bleeding into the more familiar telling of the tale is, well, masterful.

    This book is exactly what you think it will be with a m/m twist. There are no surprises from the basic story. This is a light and easy read you cannot go wrong with this story.

    Story
    "So Cute! I loved this!"

    Narration - Eugenia Woods - Really Good. First I have to say that this story is all men and we have a female narrator, so initially, I thought that was kind of weird, but I gotta say, she did a terrific job.
    This is an over the top fairy tale with a m/m twist and her narration was just the right amount of over the top and pretty perfect for this story.

    The story was silly and cute and I really enjoyed it. Yes, there's some over the top bits, but that went with the whole beauty and the beast vibe. So, yes, this is a fairy tale with an adult theme (although there's no sex or kinky stuff going on) and a moral to the story.

    I enjoyed it.

    "Bobby and the Beast"

    The same old story of a conceited prince who is turned into a beast and must convince someone to love him for who he is..this time a gay man.Narrated by Eugenia Woods,this was a fun,over the top bit of fluff.I feel a male narrator would have made more sense for this story.

    Story
    "Gay Fairytale"

    This was a retelling of the familiar Beauty and the Beast fairytale, but with a M/M gay twist. It is light clean romance, not erotica. I liked Bobby and The Beast was redeemable.

    I read the audiobook edition. The narrator was fantastic, speaking clearly and at a good pace. The narrator enhanced my reading experience, portraying characters and emotions well.

    I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "A Gay Beauty and the Beast Tale"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Not really


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Expected as this was a Gay re-telling of Beauty and the Beast.


    What does Eugenia Woods bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The added drama of an audio narration.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    If the book had been less G rated with hot love scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    This was lighthearted fun listen; no great outstanding work of fiction. It was basically a gay version of Beauty and the Beast. Just substitute Belle and the Beast for two Gay men and that is the story.

    It was fun short listen.

    "This was a me not the book reaction"

    "This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBlast dot com."

    I enjoyed the story, it was silly and OTT, but fun. Overall an interesting re-telling of well-known fairytale.

    The narrator ... was just not for me. Partially that is because I'm not a huge fan of female narrators in general, but it was also that she overacted. The beast's voice was never just a voice, it was always growls and loud and just unpleasant. My reactions to some of the other voices was similar.

    This is one of those situations where I think I would have really enjoyed the book if I'd read it, but the narration didn't work for me and the story got lost in that reaction.
