"Just once more, my Angel. Just one more quick fuck and I’ll concentrate on something other than getting inside of you."

Sliding my hands under her thighs, I lifted her and her legs automatically locked themselves around my waist. I love how trusting she was and her body was always so willing to accept me. Turning, I entered the first room we came across. Kicking the door shut behind me with my foot, I turned our bodies so that her back was up against the door. I pinned her against the door, using my hips to hold her there. My fingers ran up her neck and tangled in her hair, something I just couldn’t get enough of. I grabbed fistfuls of the dark waterfall and crushed my mouth against hers, wanting to taste her once more. Tonguing her mouth, I moved on to lick her earlobe, sucking it into my mouth, nibbling on it lightly. I continued to lick down her neck as she rubbed her whole body against mine like a cat in heat.

Reaching between us, I freed my throbbing cock. I smiled when I remembered she wasn’t wearing any panties at the moment and drove home in one slick, hard thrust. My sweet beauty let out a whimper.

"That's it, Bella. Take my cock. Fucking take what I give you."

Unleashing my inner beast, I fucked her sweet pussy hard and fast purely just for my pleasure. I pounded her luscious ass against the door, and relished in the loud thuds and wet slaps that echoed throughout the otherwise silent room.

"Perfect, Angel. So fucking tight. And so sweet. I can't get deep enough."

I drove into her harder and harder, trying to fit all of me inside her, to imprint myself onto her. My hands were roaming all over her sinful body. I cupped her breasts, loving how they filled and spilled over my palms, pinching her nipples through her dress, tugging firmly on her hair, before reaching down to squeeze her luscious ass. My sweet beauty was laid out, spread for me. She was giving me everything, her heart, her body, her soul. I could feel the power she was laying in my hands. But I needed more.

Grabbing ahold of her ass, I turned around while she was still impaled on my cock and knelt down, laying her on the plush carpet. Not pausing or slowing down my pounding, I reached down to rip open her dress and pull off her bra, baring her to me. I was a beast possessed, and I wanted her at my complete mercy.

"Griffin!" Annabella screamed, arching her back off the floor as her fingers immediately went to her nipples, pinching and tugging on the erect buds. She was as wild as I was at this moment. I tore my shirt off and pushed her hands out of the way. Laying my chest against her naked flesh, I thrust even harder and deeper into her warm, slick pussy. I had this overwhelming desire and urge to plant my seed deep inside her, to get her pregnant and round with my child.

"I want to get you pregnant right this second. I want to fill your pussy all the way to the brim with my cum and have my seed take root. I want to breed you and keep you by my side. Forever."

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This modern day telling of Beauty and the Beast is hot, steamy and kind of cute. It worked as a fun short read, that had a predictable plot but with a couple of twists. It is well described by the author in the 'blurb' as insta-love, and tons of sex. I would definitely read more by Ms. Riley.

Owning the Beast is a quick read that could be considered a modern erotic take on Beauty and the Beast. Alexa has recently lost her parents and because they sheltered her for so much of her life to keep her hidden from her father’s enemies, she is an extremely naïve virgin. She knows that she must get out of Mexico as soon as possible and because her mother was an American citizen, her only barrier to leaving is financial. Alexa finds her ticket to freedom in the form of a mail-order bride service that also happens to run an escort service. While understandably nervous about marrying a complete stranger, Alexa is relieved for the security and stability that the marriage offers her. When she arrives at her new home, she is taken aback by her fiancé Griffin – not because of his extensive scarring, but rather it is the way he treats her that she finds disconcerting.

I really enjoyed reading Owning the Beast. The twist that Ms. Riley gives Beauty and the Beast lends itself to the intense erotic scenes that occur between Alexa and Griffin. Despite his rough treatment of her, Alexa does not hold it against Griffin but rather sees it as the defense mechanism that it is. Neither realize during their first day together that they have been hoodwinked, so she spends the time “falling in love” with her fiancé while he spends the time baffled by a whore that doesn’t flee immediately after sex. The “training” that Alexa received from the escorts at the agency helps to increase the eroticism of the story despite her virginal status. As with all novellas, I allow quite a bit of leeway with how quickly Alexa and Griffin fall in love because while it does occur within 24-48 hours of meeting, her openness to love her husband-to-be and his need to be loved make the speed with which it occurs acceptable – not to mention, the author does forewarn potential readers that it’s gonna happen quickly.

As much as I enjoyed Owning the Beast I could not bring myself to give it a 4-star rating because of the constant shifting in tenses. Although I did receive a free copy of the book and do not know whether it is the final version or not, the frequency with which the author shifts from present tense to past tense – sometimes within the same sentence – is too often to chalk it up to it being an editing issue. While definitely noticeable, it is not enough to ruin the read but enough to prevent it from receiving 4 stars from me. I look forward to reading more of Ms. Riley’s work.

I’m Alexa Riley! Mom, wife, and business woman by day and smut writer by night. I specialize in the Dirty Date Night reading. I wrote my first book, Owning Her Innocence, because well, I just couldn’t find any daddy books to my liking. So I sat down and just started writing, bringing the fantasies I find myself often dancing to in the dark of night to life, one page at a time.

Alexa Riley is my alter ego. I can’t let the other soccer moms know what I’m up to or the guys at work for that matter. Little do they know that they’ve got nothing on my dirty talk.

I’m here to give you a quick fix of filthy dirty smut. Got a few hours to kill? Then I’m what you’re looking for.
