Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Beautiful Beasts Academy, where the only thing more dangerous than the haunted grounds are the students themselves.
 

Life as the daughter of the city’s most prominent Vampire was tough enough. 

Bodyguards with fangs. 

Paparazzi everywhere I turn. 

Dates with an overbearing demon. 

I hated it all. So when the opportunity to attend academy reared its head, I jumped at the chance. 

I could hide there, blend in with all the other beautiful beasts and try to ignore my bodyguard.
 

I wanted normal.

I craved boring. 
 

But fate has a shitty sense of humor, way worse than mine. 

So when I find a body in the middle of my bedroom on my first night there...I’m not threatened not with death...something worse. 
 

Getting expelled.
 

And to prove my innocence I have to find the real killer in a school full of monsters.

Prepare yourself for side-splitting hillariousness and super hot Wolf shifters in this slow-burn Reverse Harem Series. Suitable for listeners 18 and up.

Slow Start but Worth the Listen!

I offered to review this audiobook because I am such an an avid reader but also almost exclusively audio due to my schedule. Because of this, and the fact that a bad narrator can destroy a great series, I can be very critical of narrators. Especially when books have a single narrator required to speak with different voices for multiple characters. Most cannot do it without having some errors where they use the wrong 'voice' for the wrong character. Caitlyn Johnston does a good job in narrating this book! It was a very enjoyable listen and I only noticed one issue distinguishing between characters.

As to the story, I am not one to give a lot of specific story details since I feel you should read the story for that. This is book 1 of a series with great characters, and story development. It was a bit slow of a start, but given my experience with other Kim Faulks' books I decided to keep listening and I am very glad I did. You definitely won't be disappointed if you decide to give it a try!

I received a free review copy of this audiobook and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Good first book to an interesting series.

If you like paranormal Academy books, then this is a good one to listen to. The narrator is interesting and the story engaging, and I enjoyed it.

Great Story with wonderful audio voices.

This audio book gives this story a wonderful thrill to what readers will discover in the first book of the Beautiful Beasts Academy. I enjoyed listening to it while reading the book also.
I will be listening to all the books plus rereading them at the same time.

Great Story Line

I loved the story and the characters but the narrator just did not do it for me. Mor and Ava crack me up. I can't wait to see where the relationship goes with the wolves.

What a fun but serious enjoyable listen this book was. With spots you can have a giggle and times that you need to be serious. Friendships formed and a fight ensues. Awesome young adult, teen listen.
Caitlyn did a great job with the narration.

Awesome and only the beginning

When boarding school is just what you needed. There is mystery, vamps, werewolves, and even a kraken and this is only her first year. This is the 1st story in this series and reading this one is awesome and makes you anxious to read the next book in the series. I recommend this story.

Story is great! Narrater is sub-par

I'm not generally into reverse harem, but I was surprised with this one. It is slow burn and builds the characters up and mixes them together well. I will definitely listen to the next audio book especially since it has a different narrator. The only down side to the book was the narrator was so flat, only used one voice, mispronounced so many words, and was generally just not good at her job. Good book though. I recommend.

First audible for me

This was a cute story about a vampire princess who loves to embarrass her family when they drag her to important parties because she’s tired of going to them. After the last embarrassing act, her father sends her to a supernatural school where she meets a few shifters and is framed for murder.

😊

I absolutely loved the environment of this book, it had quite a few of the feels going on. It’s a fast paced book, and if you enjoy a mixture of the paranormal characters then you’ll enjoy this book. It’s a good series starter, and the narrative is on point with the characters.

A supernatural listen

Both authors wrote a new series. It’s a slow burn reverse harem series. There are some parts that I stay away from it’s not a reflection on the authors but myself .
Heroine is Morwenna, a student vampire and 3 hot werewolves that know the 4 of them belong together. Morwenna Is trying to be normal, as normal as a vamp can be she’s rich and she expects everything to be handled to her . There are some nasty enemies that Morwenna encounters at the academy . How will Morwenna handle them

Caitlyn Performance was good . First time I heard her voice is good and strong

Wonderfully entertaining

This is a wonderfully gripping academy story. It revolves around a mystery and different supernatural creatures that are natural enemies along with their evolving relationships . The narration is brilliant and really brings the characters to life.

Surprisingly Captivating Characters and Plot

I was given a free copy for an honest review. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. So much so that I ordered the ebook to read alongside the audio book (I only listen in the car). I found the story entertaining and captivating although it's not my usually style. I found the reading of the story quite distracting. From the pronunciation to the stutters and the spead. However the characters and storyline were enough for me to continue with the whole series. A switch in reader helped with the later books.

Enjoyable

Format: audiobook
A group of young supernaturals coming together in a school and forming bonds that shouldn’t be possible, they are enemies after all, right?
This is a really good story, interesting and intriguing with a particularly unique character,Ava!
The narrator wasn’t bad but did mispronounces and stumble a little over some words which makes me cringe a bit. All in all though it made for a great read/listen.
