    1. I want to bleach my brain after reading this.No, I'm not a prude (I'm a gynecologist, I've seen and heard EVERYTHING). It's just THAT BAD.Public service notice: This book has been brought to you thanks to the generous sponsorship by the word 'spanking'. Which is repeated so many times it almost does not look like a real word anymore. A drinking game with taking a shot every time spanking is mentioned would not last long (that is, unless you have truly remarkable alcohol-digesting enzymes and a s [...]


    2. WARNING: ANIMATED F DUMP, just because I can't take this book seriously.Finished, and I am so glad that this book is now out of my life and hidden away. This book elicited very strong emotions from me, from disbelief to WTF to OMG enough with the spanking already! in as little as 30 pages. I've mapped out my emotional progression from the beginning to end:Pre-read with high expectations: Pages 1 - 100: Pages 100 - 200ish: Page 200 - end: This book is absurd. I know this is supposed to be some gl [...]


    3. Oh no,no,no,no,no,noNO!!What in the name of Holy Mother was that???A JOKE???Because seriously,if it is then call me dumb but I don't get it!!Now first of all,let me clarify that I love erotica and the fact that this story was supposed to be an erotic-retelling of Sleeping Beauty, captured my attention.My heartfelt apology to all those other reviewers who warned Readers away.I did not heed their warnings because I was too curious.But I guess,in this case at least,the age old saying came pretty tr [...]


    4. I was hoping for a more grown up version of the classic Sleeping Beauty tale. Holy Moly! This isn't at all what I expected, and while I am not a prude by any stretch of the imagination, this book was way too intense for me.According to some, I'm not open minded or enlightened enough to appreciate its value. To them I say well hell, I'm still too stunned to say anything.


    5. I got this in a boxed set one Christmas from my GRANDMOTHER. She knew I collected fairy tales and their adaptations. I'm fairly certain she had no idea the books were erotic. I think she just saw "Sleeping Beauty" and assumed I'd want it. She wanted to borrow it from me when I was done. I kept pretending to forget it every time.First Book: Fun and novel read. Interesting background and lots of creative naughty bits for fun. Second book: Lost steam. She lost most of the background and plot and ev [...]


    6. Disclaimer: I read this book on a dare. I'm not a fan of pure erotica and I'm no expert in BDSM, so it was pretty much obvious from the start that I wouldn't enjoy this read. That's why I'm not rating this book, as it wouldn't be fair to lower its average rating "on purpose" - not that I think one rating would cause such "damage", but anywaySo, how should I start this review ranting of mine? ;) Okay, how about the plot? Plot?!? Yes, dear friends, this book has a plot - an absurd and underdevelop [...]


    7. First off: Are reviewers here doing their job when reading? Aren't we supposed to abandon our preconceptions when opening a book? On that note, this is one of those books. In order to fully enjoy it, I have some recommendations:1) This series IS NOT EROTICA. This is full blown pornography. If we define erotica as the mere suggestion of the sex act, whereas pornography comprises descriptive and graphic depictions of sex scenes, then this book is pornography. And, if your religious, republican, ri [...]


    8. I can’t help comment/review this book from the perspective of someone who has read it before and has recently read it again. As a whole I like to think of the trilogy like a flower. The first novel is the bud and then by the time you get to the end of the third novel it’s in full bloom.Claiming starts of with innocent little Beauty being “awakened” by the Prince. I like how innocent Beauty is because as the reader you’re innocent to this new world she is introduced to as well, this bei [...]

      Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || Pinterest💙 I read this for the Unapologetic Romance Readers' New Years 2018 Reading Challenge, for the category of: Fairytale Retelling Romance. For more info on this challenge, click here. 💙 When I was a preteen, I was out with my mom having brunch or something, and I remember these two ladies sitting nearby trying reaaaalllly hard to speak quietly, so all I could really make out was "Pssst.did you hear about.-psstAnne Rice.-psstotica.t-psst-pssteep [...]


    10. So my friend sent me an article about "50 Shades of Grey", mentioning that real erotica experts thought 50 was crap and "Sleeping Beauty" was the real thing. Because I am nothing if not thorough, I bought Sleeping Beauty #1.WHAT. THE FUCK.No. NO! NONONONONO. Who on earth thought THIS would be a good counter from the erotica world? I do not get BDSM off of this, I get some sort of weird torture porn. You know what puts me right off a sexytimes book? Rape. And there is a HELL of a lot of rape in h [...]


    11. UmmmI don't even know where to start. This book was definitely a far cry from the 'Sleeping Beauty' I remember from childhood. LOL! I love a good, dark, erotic story, but this was just bizarre. I had to create a new shelf for this one, named 'WTF did I just read'. Aside from the overzealous paddle-wielding, the story wasn't really particularly "dark". Nope, the shocking nature of this tale seemed to come from it's complete and total strangeness. It was just so damn weird!I mean, who the hell adm [...]


    12. If you're looking for a good BDSM fiction, this is it. Otherwise - stay away. And I mean it!!! BDSM is an acquired taste and if you're not really into it, you'll find the book repulsive.Now, if you're into love games and are fascinated by mild (or not so mild) pain in an erotic setting - you've got the right book. The fairytale, Sleeping Beauty, is used merely as a starting point, the story goes off on a tangent within the first few pages and then we're taken into the neighbouring kingdom with a [...]


    13. This is, from what my boyfriend tells me, a hilarious book to read aloud on a plane if you want to make the other passengers uncomfortable. As far as I can tell, that's its only use.


    14. My Proper ReviewOkay what to say, what to say?Honestly I'm pretty shy to review this book, just bear with me and my random shenanigans. Okay so I'll just assume that people who are reading this book review are 18 years old and above. Please if you're below 18, stop reading this and do something else.Moving on, the reason I read this book is merely out of curiosity. But my first encounter with the idea of BDSM was last year(I'm not going to explain the definition of BDSM, if you haven't heard of [...]


    15. I am not sure how I feel about this book. On PAGE 3 the sex and degradation begins and it continued-page after brutal page. I am not a prude by any stretch, I just think this is not the book or subject matter for me. The sub/dom theme is just a little much for me as it is presented in this book--especially since there seems to be little to no relief for the submissives. To answer the review question, "What I Learned from this book"--Well, I learned that being a submissive 24-7 seems to really su [...]



    16. Oh boy. What to say about this book. I love a good smut novel, and not just those PG-13 Danielle Steel novels either. I totally dig trashy, nasty, dirty romance novels, especially the ones that use ridiculous words like tumescent, which is what I expected this book to be--with a fairy tale context. What it turned out to be was 200 pages of rape and sadism and degradation. Within three pages, Sleeping Beauty was awakened not by a loving kiss, as is the tradition, but by sex, which obviously she c [...]


    17. I purchased this book originally to read aloud with my best friend as a joke of some sort. Well, a four hour plane ride later, I thought there would be no harm to pre read a little bit. So here I am, on a plane flying from Detroit to Vegas reading this naughty book, hoping the older couple next to me doesn't try to read over my shoulder. I knew about the plot and twist coming into this, and it didn't bother me at all. If you want me to be honest, it kind of intrigued me a little bit. So I dove i [...]


    18. This is a scrumptious sexual feast from Anne Rice, writing under a pseudonym. It picks up the Sleeping Beauty tale from the moment the Prince kisses her and spins a three-book saga of what happens next. Beauty is whisked off to the Prince's kingdom, but discovers that before she can marry him, she must follow the laws of his land and do as the other princes and pricesses do. That is, she must surrender to several years of humiliating sado-masochistic sexual servitude at the hands of the aristocr [...]


    19. A princess is inflicted with a curse. One where she would sleep for eternity, unless the spell is broken by a kiss of a prince. A prince comes and bestows his lovingly affections to the lovely princess. When I say lovingly affections, I mean, him ruining Beauty's dress with a sword, raping her(she was asleep, and she doesn't give permission, which I call rape) and then giving her a kiss. The thought (aside from the rape part), is absolutely romantic for me. I could already imagine all that the p [...]


    20. I was all for reading a little naughty fairy-tale erotica from an author I liked - but wow. The whole sub/dom theme (the title really should be "The Spanking Of Sleeping Beauty") was funny at first, then ridiculous, and eventually just tedious. Meh.


    21. I'm not rating this because I couldn't finish it, and I don't feel it's right to rate a book unless you've digested the entire thing. But I did want to make it clear why I gave up on this book. I'm not a prude, not real squeamish when it comes to sex, and have no problem with consensual BDSM. Key word there being "consensual". The sexual situations in this book are anything but consensual. The "Prince" regularly degrades, humiliates, and dehumanizes Beauty, and she never objects, never attempts [...]


    22. Warning - ADULT CONTENTThis book was really my introduction into Erotica and is definitely an eye opener. I agree with one of the other reviewers in that this is so well written by Anne Rice (Pen Name A. N. Roquelaure) that you may be ruined for other Erotica - I was.This book basically picks up on the fairy tale where the Prince awakens Sleeping Beauty with a He then takes her back to his kingdom where she is basically a slave along with many others that are being groomed for nobility. The BDSM [...]



    23. It took me forever to figure out how to rate this book because I couldn't even figure out how I felt about it when I finished. I'm still a little unsure, honestly. Honestly, I'm not quite sure where Sleeping Beauty comes into play here except she's a princess who awakens from a cursed sleep. That's where any relations to the story pretty much end. What then ensues is such a clusterfuck of actions that I'm just left likeI was told early on that this was pretty much a BDSM book, when in actuality [...]


    24. I've heard lots about this trilogy, good and bad. It's been touted as great BDSM fic, an erotic fairytale and a great read. There were voices that said it's vile and horrible. There seemed to be no middle groundCurious, I requested the books on Netgalley when Penguin made them available as a re-release.Curiosity killed the cat. I should have remembered that old adage. Despite my usually high tolerance for kinky stories, I struggled through this book, with my teeth clenched and my fists balled in [...]


    25. I reread this recently for a local book group. I originally gave it a lower rating, but with age I have come to appreciate a bit more about this book.First of all, it's an erotica book unto itself. The language is oddball, the world is complete fantasy, and it's grossly politically incorrect by today's standards. I think if this was published today she would have had to make all the "princes" and "princesses" at least 18 years of age, etc, etc.With that said, this book did it for me. What that m [...]



    26. Warning: smutty images described here. :)I snagged a copy of this just to see what all the fuss was about (and now that I have a kindle, I can read all the smut I want without anyone knowing, lol). I managed to get through about 1/3 of it, then clicked to the end to see what happened. Here's what I thought:- Several images are going to stay with me for the rest of my days, and no amount of brain bleach is going to remove them (specifically: the guy that is forced to spend the night mounted on a [...]


    27. I had a friend who turned me on to Anne Rice when I was a teenager and I loooooved the vampire books. Then I started these - WHOA. Blew my eyes wide open. Naughty naughty naughty. So recently I came across them while digging through my basement and thought it would be fun to see what a 37 year old Jenny thinks of these since my only perspective is from 20 years ago and teenage eyes. The story is pretty much what I remembered. Beauty is awoken by a prince (or should I say by a penis?) and the Pri [...]
