Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time, I believed in fairytales.

But then he took me.

And he taught me that life isn't a fairytale.

He is scarred. Broken.

A dark and wild thing.

His beauty is violent and his words are cruel.

His heart is a shadowed landscape where nothing can grow.

He tells me he could never care for me, and he proves it every day.

He's destroyed my life.

Tortured me.

And worse....

He's trained me to beg for his affection.

This prison is a place where sunlight doesn't reach.

He taught me that hate is born in darkness.

And then he taught me that sometimes love is too.

    Story
    "Love Is A Battlefield"

    Isabella’s singing career is on the rise, but she’s still terribly unhappy with her life. Things get a lot worse when she’s kidnapped by Javi who has a grudge against her father and he’s going to make “Bella” pay the price.

    Amazing, that’s all I can say about the very dark, very twisted take on the Beauty and the Beast story. Javi is truly cruel and abusive towards Bella before she turns the tables on him and flips his world upside down. If you have triggers or are sensitive to scenes that involve emotional and physical abuse, you may want to skip this one. I have no such filters and I loved this story! It’s raw, suspenseful and deeply erotic. I won’t forget this one anytime soon.

    Tracy Marks narrates this nearly 8-hour audiobook and in this fully-voiced production she really shines. Her accent for Javi’s character was all kinds of hot. This story required so much emotion from both main characters and Tracy nailed the transformation of Javi’s character from beast to man. The audiobook is fast paced and Tracy is a fast talker so it all worked together well in this audiobook.

    Beast is the first book that I’ve listened to from author A. Zavarelli, but I’ll be heading over to see what else she’s written because I’m hooked!

    This audiobook was given to me at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review, thanks, Audiobook Boom!

    "Beast and Beauty"

    I was given a copy of this in exchange for an honest review!
    This story gutted me! A Zavarelli knocked a hone run on it. I felt the anguish of each character with her written words!
    Tracy Marks is a wonderful narrator, she is able to get some amazing feelings across through her voice. Her ability to change voices within this particular boom was WOW!!!

    "So much darker than I expected!!!"

    Wow! I am speechless after listening to this book. I had to think about what I was going to write in this review. This book was so much darker than I expected. The author is very talented, but I have a hard time with how this book started. I so loved the Boston Underworld series that I want more of them, that I think I was expecting some sort of character overlay with this book. Tracy Marks did an awesome performance with this book. She is able to convey so much emotion into the characters. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I leave the synopsis up to the professionals as they are so much more eloquent. I was given this review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily written this review. A few phrases that come to mind are Stockholm Syndrome, and not your typical fairytale of Beauty and the Beast.

    Story
    "Ferocious predator? Or sexy sadomasochist?"

    When Isabell's father goes missing, she tries to get information on a case he was working on.
    The prize for her nosiness?? A phychopath stalker that she actually knows.
    Javier is a well trained killer who's hell bent on vengeance.
    This brutally cruel monster is obsessed with capturing, caging, and torturing Bella.
    Bella has enough common sense to know Javier is dangerous and yet she's so indecisive, you just want to yell.. It's just Stockholm making you find solace in your sadistic capturer RUN BELLA RUN!!
    Even when Javier isn't playing the bad guy roll, he's still not redeemable enough for me to like him.
    This story is intriguing and well written enough to make you believe that these 2 people with their own brand of "crazy love" were meant to be.
    On this particular book Tracy Marks gave a perfectly stellar performance.
    I usually have to turn down the speed so that she doesn't sound like an auctioneer. When she speaks to quickly its hard to feel the characters emotions.
    I'm so happy she toned it down 👏
    So is this book credit worthy??
    Well, I requested this book in exchange for my honest review because I like to switch it up and go into the darkness sometime.
    If you're looking for dark and Suspenseful
    I say, yes enjoy the ride.. It's a brutal one🔪

    Story
    "Emotional TNT"

    Wow. I'm still trembling, coming down from the adrenaline rush I've been riding since the beginning of the book. Subject matter was very uncomfortable for me, and may be more so for those with emotional triggers. Having said that, the writing was excellent and the author did a wonderful job weaving a tale that sweeps the listener along, with plot twists galore. The hot erotic scenes were compelling and full- bodied, but most included hard core BDSM with humiliation, rape, and even bloodletting- in case any of this is a deal breaker for you. With those more intense elements stripped away, this is a story of two broken people whose jagged edges somehow fit together, each one healing the other, bringing redemption and closure to tragic events they've suffered through. A glass of wine or two, plus or minus that last Valium you've been holding on to, will help this one go down a little easier. I wholeheartedly recommend you give this one a listen.

    Story
    "Dark and erotic!"

    Beauty and the Beast is my favorite fairy tale. It's dark, and the good in beast is always found.
    A. Zavarelli has taken this fairy tale, given it a few twists and made an incredibly dark and delicious story, never losing sight of the original. Javier is cruel and kind, abusive and loving. Bella is drawn to Javi, not knowing why but definitely caught in his web. Bella's journey to find the light in Javier is struggle, with love and heartache. So much suspense and so many emotions had me on the edge of my seat the entire listen.

    The narration is superb. Tracy Marks has a way of performing that entrancing you as soon as the book starts. She is a master of both male and female voice characters and can nail any accent I have heard her do. She definitely is one of the best and completely brought this dark narration to light.

    "wow"

    Tracy Marks was giving away some free copys of this audio book. But must say if i hadnt won this i would have bought it anyway. I have it on Kindle and paper also.
    Tracy is fast becomming one of the best narrators there is if you ask me. I dont even nottice that she is doing all the parts. She is amazing.
    this is not my first Zavarelli book. She makes the best dark books. The kind of books where you need a break sometines to be able to breathe. The kind of books where you need to hold your ears or close your eyes Because it is almost to violent and dark But you just need to hear what happens next/ turn the next paige.
    She blows my minde this woman
