Book Review: Beast, Part 1

Beast, Part I (Beast #1) by Ella James: FROM HOLLYWOOD ROYALTY
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.

Lori's thoughts: It's official. Ella James rocks. Everything I have read by this author leaves me more pleasantly surprised -- in a good way -- than the book before. Beast is not your usual retelling of Beauty and the Beast. On the contrary, it is a completely different tale. Twisty and turny, and smoking hot. It's a short, quick read and I can't wait to get started on part 2. Get it, read it, now. You won't be sorry!
