Beast, meet princess. Princess, meet beast. Yes, this is the adult version of Disney’s, Beauty and the Beast. Brenda is the lost princess of Elden, and has been cast away by her parents for her own safety, in hopes that she and her brothers will one day return and reclaim their kingdom. Lost in an unknown places, Breena stumbles across a cottage and 3 bears  berserkers.

Osborn has sworn vengeance against all of Elden, but more particular the King, Queen and their children for the brutal slaying of his people. As the only berserkers left, Osborn has built a sheltered life for himself and his two brothers. But when they return home to find a distressed princess passed out in their home, little do they know their world is about to change.

A quick, easy, romance novel. Osborn is an aggressive brute, who doesn’t like change and wants what he wants, and will take it whenever he pleases. Breena is a, surprisingly down to earth, low maintenance princess, who demands very little. Except for the help for avenging her family.

Neither characters were overly interesting, or intriguing. It was just a lot of back an forth, “Don’t be alone with me”, ‘wait, let me touch your face’, ‘hold on, let me soothe you to sleep’, “I thought I told you to not be left alone with me”. Come to think of it, there really wasn’t much of a plot to this story. At least in the first book, Lord of the Vampires, Nicolai and Jane had to escape their captures. All Breena and Osborn had to accomplish was seeing you can repeat themselves the most, and breaking their own rules.
Overall rating: 5/5.

Would I recommend: I suppose. There’s was nothing wrong with Lord of Rage. If you’re looking for complexity, you won’t find it here. If you’re looking for romance, and no serious conversation or plot? Then yes you’ll love this book. It’s quick and easy to read. And if you’re looking to fill in time between reads, or tryin to catch up on your Goodreads challenge, then this book will be perfect.
