I was hoping for something better. In the beginning of the book she talked about how the story was going to be liberating. I started reading and just found myself disappointed. There was way too much spanking going on, just about every chapter. The sex scenes became boring after a while. The story was very repetitive. I don't believe the book was liberating. There was some rape going on, especially in the very beginning while Beauty was asleep and could not give consent which was rather disturbing.
