Well, if you like spankings, S&M, spankings, weird sex, spankings, bondage and spankings, this is the book for you. Did I mention there's a lot of spankings? Like, on every page, starting with, oh...page 2. It's erotic, it's a whole new take on an old fairy tale...it's got A LOT of spankings. Enjoy.

This was my first foray into Erotica and sorry to say I was a little disappointed. The premise seemed promising but there was very little (if any)character development. I really wanted to like it as I am a big fan of Ann Rice but I just couldn't finish it. MY TBR pile is too big to try and force myself to read this one.

Well... if you like spanking, you'll like this book. About 75% of it is spanking! :) Very explicit sexual scenes and some homosexual activity as well.

An interesting idea and very erotically written. But I do expect more character development and depth from this author.

It states on the cover, if you liked the Fifty Shades trilogy, you'll love the Sleeping Beauty trilogy. Not so much. This is a whole different kind of story. Fifty Shades was a love story involving some S&M this was just a girl who was forced to like being spanked!

Anne usually writes such beautiful stories. I don't know what possessed her to write this. Definitely for the erotically, sado-masochistically minded.

Not a fan of erotica but still tried to read it anyway. It's basically rape and torture sex for the ENTIRE span of the book. Overarching story is barely a story. Merely a vehicle to write about a lot of dirty rape/sex. Not recommended for someone just trying to read a bit of smut. It's completely vulgar and a book full of rape and trying to justify it.
