Aimee and the Bear (Fairy Tales with a Shift) by Cara Wylde

Aimee and the Bear

This book is based on the fairy tale Beauty and the Beast. Cara Wylde is an author that I just love to read.

Aimee and her family used to be rich but when her father’s merchandise ships went down in a storm, they lost all their income and lost everything. Now they sell things at the market most days in order to make money to survive after having to move out of town. One thing Aimee notices is how all the women want real roses, not ones grown in a greenhouse. This is particularly saddening to her because they only grow in one place and everyone is too scared to go there and get them. Except her.

Aimee goes for a walk one Sunday afternoon. She goes to the abandoned mansion and takes an armload of flowers. She gets curious and goes inside the mansion which is a huge mistake. She ends up thrown in a cell and left there. Eventually the beast makes a deal with her and lets her out. Each night, in her dreams, she is visited by an amazingly sexy man. Each day she spends it with the bear and exploring the mansion.


This book might be short but I like this version of Beauty and the Beast almost better than the original version. Aimee is a great female character and I like the outcome of this story. I wish it would have been longer but hey, we can’t have it all can we? lol
