The BBW and the Beast

Happily Ever Alpha

One of the exclusive offerings in the Happily Ever Alpha box set is Sylvia Frost’s The BBW and the Prince. I’ll admit that I almost didn’t start on this story because the abbreviation BBW (big, beautiful woman) in the title made me think it was going to be erotica — all sex, no story. But then I read a teaser for the second book in the series¬†and was immediately hooked. I’m a sucker for a good fairy-tale retelling, so I immediately turned back to the box set and flipped to The BBW and the Prince.

I was instantly drawn into the interesting world-building, which was painted with a very light but elegant hand (no infodumps here!). The author’s writing is a notch above most paranormal romances and I ended up thoroughly enjoying the story. I don’t want to spoil anything, but suffice it to say that “Beauty” is legally blind and the beast is a werewolf. Expected and unexpected antics occur, the pages turned awfully darn fast, and I was ready for the sequel before I knew it.

Now I just have 19 more novels to enjoy in this high-value box set!
