When I learned this was a Beauty and the Beast reboot, my interest was piqued. From the beginning, I got a kick out of Charisse, the main character. The authors have managed to write her as a strong and independent woman without crossing the line into making her stand-offish and rude. That can be hard to do, so kudos to Rebecca Hamilton and Conner Kressley on that one.

While, at first, I enjoyed finding all the Beauty and the Beast elements peppered throughout the story, I later became very intrigued by the world-building and, well, the actual premise of Taken by the Beast. I almost want to read it over again - this time without looking for Beauty and the Beast moments - so I can catch some more of the early plot elements of the Conduit series that I might have missed. I'm curious to learn more about what Charisse is.

It looks like book two is already up for pre-order (grabbing my copy as soon as I finish this review!) and is going to be loosely based on Sleeping Beauty. I can't wait to find out how the authors manage to wrap their Conduit story around all these fairy tales. Very cool idea.

Should you read Taken by the Beast? Yes. You should.

Do it.

Do it now.

Yes, I'm peer pressuring you, but it's for your own good. (You'll thank me later.)

I was gifted a copy of this book to read and review.

I absolutely love Beauty and the Beast, it's my favourite tale. So knowing this was loosely based on it really made me want to read it!

Charisse returns to her home town and takes a job in the towns only nightclub. Her new boss Abram is sexy and intriguing and she feels a magnetic pull to him. But she also has a new relationship beginning with Dalton the towns police deputy and her best friends brother.

She soon discovers Abram is hiding a few too many secrets in his home in the woods........................But the discovery of this means she discovers a few secrets of her own that she didn't know she had!!!!

I loved this book, about half way through it changes and boy does it shock you! The twists and turns and shocks in it will have you gasping and shouting at your kindle like I was!! In fact I messaged one of the authors and asked her "there is going to be another right?". The answer is yes there is more books in the series THANK GOD!!

Not the usual reader of paranormal romance, I was completely taken by this novel (glad it's the first in the series).
Charisse is just my type of the heroine, lively, passionate, charismatic, not afraid of herself or the others. I love this sort of women, no mouse-like girls. I kept rooting for her, from the very first pages. And this is just one wonderful aspect, the characters, so alive, so multi-dimensional, all of them.
And did this story keep me on the edge of my seat! I suspected Abram's at being something of the night creature when he kept not showing at work at nights, but somehow it all remained elusive and I didn't know where the story was heading. so was left with turning pages and reading into the night (I finished this book in only one sitting!). Which is what I love the most, the suspense, the unpredictability. Also the romance was just of the right amount for me, not too much and not too little. Charisse has other problems on her mind besides her attraction to Abram and her relationship with Dalton. Suspense and mystery, love and fascinating human and not so human interactions, and most of all lively characters that one feels as though one got to know personally, it's all there, in this amazing roller-coaster of adventure and love. I admit that I already pre-ordered the next book.

This was honestly a fun and exciting read. Not all romance stories are created equal but this one is one of the better romances I have read and trust me, I have read a lot! I first downloaded the book really hoping to get a good read and that’s exactly what I got.
There are numerous exciting plots all throughout and Charisse, the main character is such a believable and well thought out character. Who knew that romance, mystery and the paranormal mixed so well.
Taken by the beast was clearly written by two very talented authors. I read this book as if I was watching a movie, after the first page I could not put it down. You just want to know what happens next and each chapter gets better and better with twists and turns all throughout.
I WILL be purchasing Book 2 of this series.

Excellently written. Right from the start up until the end, this book is enjoyable. I like the pace and it's a beautiful story that keeps you going. It's filled with suspense, and you are left asking for more at the end - I see the writers putting up a follow up to this sometime later. But I hope it's sooner. Charisse' father's inexplicable disappearance her hunted her since she left home, coming back to her hometown a lady and finding herself in a difficult situation with no job, no money and a home to go to, she ends up moving into the home of her childhood friend Lulu, who is now married. She gets a job in at a local bar and from there on things and information about her life become clearer. The characters, Charisse, Dalton and Abram find themselves in situation where they have to decide between love and life - complex. In the end I didn't get an end to the story as I expected but the action in the book make up for this. Beautiful
