Book Spotlight: “Beast”

“Beast” by Ella James

Erotica Novella Serial

This is an erotic fairy tale inspired by Beauty and the Beast.


At twenty-one years old, third-generation movie star Cal Hammond was on top of the world. He had more money than God and more women than any man could need. But when a night of debauchery ends in tragedy, he forfeits a life of luxury for a ten-year prison sentence at La Rosa, California’s most violent prison.

Eight years later, a ruthless, cunning man runs La Rosa from the inside. He is known simply as BEAST. All the wardens fear him. All the gangs obey him. He speaks to no one but his inner council. What he says is law.

Annabelle Mitchell’s father is the warden at La Rosa. He deals as dirty as his trustees, and after years of smooth relations with Beast and the gangs he runs, Holt lands on the powerful prisoner’s hit list. That very afternoon, Annabelle pays a surprise visit to her father’s work, hoping to use her new counseling license at a place she thinks she could make a difference. When she catches Beast’s eye, he releases the warden and grabs the daughter. The price for the warden’s error is not death. It’s his precious Belle.

Discovered: The Book Café

My friend and I were walking along the busy streets of Singapore on Saturday when we came across The Book Cafe. The name says it all, it is a book-themed cafe.

The entire cafe is modernly furnished and reading materials (books, magazines and newspapers) are readily available. The cafe also has free wireless internet connection and electrical power points for laptop users.


Their menu boasts of extensive cosmopolitan dishes (all-day breakfast anyone?) and they serve a wide selection of coffee and tea as well. Guests will get value for their money as the servings are quite generous and the food is very tasty.


My friend and I stayed at the cafe from 6pm to 12mn (yes, we stayed there that long) and we only paid around $SGD130. We had 2 plates of pasta, 2 breakfast plates, one apple pie, one cup of cappuccino and 2 pots of tea.


My friend, Pearlyn

I highly recommend this place to book lovers especially. If you are looking for a good place to dine and relax, check out The Book Cafe. It is located at #01-02, 20 Martin Road S(239070), Seng Kee Building, Robertson Quay. My friend and I have fallen in love with the place and we will surely go back. See you there!
