Bellamy and the Brute by Alicia Michaels Book Summary
A fresh twist on the classic story of Beauty and the Beast, Bellamy and the Brute proves true love really is blind.
When Bellamy McGuire is offered a summer job babysitting for the wealthy Baldwin family, she's reluctant to accept. After all, everyone in town knows about the mysterious happenings at the mansion on the hill—including the sudden disappearance of the Baldwin's eldest son, Tate. The former football star and golden boy of Wellhollow Springs became a hermit at the age of sixteen, and no one has seen or heard from him since. Rumors abound as to why, with whisperings about a strange illness—one that causes deformity and turned him into a real-life monster. Bellamy wants to dismiss these rumors as gossip, but when she's told that if she takes the job, she must promise to never, ever visit the third floor of the mansion, she begins to wonder if there really is some dark truth hidden there.
Tate's condition may not be the only secret being kept at Baldwin House. There are gaps in the family's financial history that don't add up, and surprising connections with unscrupulous characters. At night there are strange noises, unexplained cold drafts, and the electricity cuts out. And then there are the rose petals on the staircase. The rose petals that no one but Bellamy seems to be able to see. The rose petals that form a trail leading right up to the 3 rd floor, past the portrait of a handsome young man, and down a dark hallway where she promised she would never, ever go…
As Bellamy works to unravel the mysteries of Baldwin House and uncover the truth about Tate, she realizes that she is in way over her head… in more ways than one. Can her bravery and determination help to right the wrongs of the past and free the young man whose story has captured her heart?
Bellamy and the Brute is perfect for fans of Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, Cinder by Marissa Meyer, and Beastly by Alex Flinn.

👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎No such thing as a fresh twist on beauty and the beast!! Every twist, similarity, almost copycat, names and plots are already written by unoriginal writers!! 👎👎👎👎👎👎.Straighttalker198Score: 1/5
A more updated version of beauty and the bestAt the beginning I was a little confused about the crime investigation. I even checked twice the summary of the book. I keep reading fully engaged with the storyline. Romance, action, crime, mystery and ghosts... would definitely recommend..Mel_007Score: 4/5
This. Is. A. Great. Book.Wow. This is a great book. It has so much more character than the original Beauty and the Beast! (Not that the original is bad!)

Bellamy and the BruteThis was literally the best time consuming thing I’ve done all week!!! It definitely went above my expectations and had me intrigued throughout the whole story line!! It’s a must read!.SmileyToriScore: 5/5
Pretty goodGlad it didn’t go into detail for the sex scene. I don’t want to read that kind of books. I liked the suspense and story line. I got bored with it about %75 of the way through. Did not finish..HfdchiScore: 3/5
Great Ghost/Love Story!What a unique combination of ghosts, mystery, and love. I couldn’t put it down and had to read it straight through, and it all came together in the end plus a lead for another story, going to get it right now!.MizzB52Score: 5/5
Bellamy and the BruteThe issue with good books is wanting to know what happens at the end...but not wanting the story to end🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺 It was hard to put aside the book once I started reading 😭😭.BilteyScore: 5/5
I liked the book...I liked the book but their relationship moved too fast for me. The book also seemed to just stretch on for too long at the end. But otherwise, a good read. Would recommend, the beginning was a little slow, and the end stretched on, but the middle really had me coming back to and excited read the book..The Original AditScore: 4/5
Couldn't put it down!I was a little skeptical of the Beauty and the Beast theme when I first read the book's synopsis, but once I started reading, I was captured by Tate and Bellamy's story. Murder, thrill, and love kept me intrigued the whole way through, enough so that I read the book in a day. A good read, for sure. Excited to read the sequel!.Becca_WTHECKAScore: 5/5
Good romanceI really loved the romantic part of the book. I didn't really care for the suspense and the ghosts. But it made the whole story a little more interesting. Beauty and the beast is my favorite Fairy Tale so it is hard to go wrong with it..NubininhaScore: 4/5
Read this bookIt was a perfect mix of genres. Mystery, thriller, romance, and normal high school drama. The story of beauty and the beast fit in flawlessly and the writing was 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻. This is my favorite rewrite of classical fairy tales and I can’t wait to read the next one.😁👌.Ivee!!😜Score: 5/5
Great readThis book was soo good! I was skeptical, afraid it would be either to similar to beauty and the beast or heavy on Stockholm, and it’s not! Really well written, good amount of drama, and little bit love. I could not put it down and read it in one day..Dani.sycamoreScore: 5/5
Bellamy and the BeastThis was so well written that I could easily “see” the characters, the town, and the atmosphere it engenders! I felt the emotions of the characters and just couldn’t put it down! I read this in a day and a half! I read at least a book every other day and this was one of my favorites! Hope to see more of your work in the future!.Sappy Romance readerScore: 5/5
Tale as old as time...The story started out pretty slow, but then it became a book I couldn’t put down for long. Some parts of the mystery(s) didn’t surprise, others did. As an adult I was a little hesitant about reading a book geared toward YA readers, but was still able to connect. Looking forward to their next mystery 🌹.Beautiful Sunrise TreasuresScore: 5/5
Bellamy and the BruteNot my usual kind of book to read and first time reading this author. A very good writer because the story kept me engaged. I will say I think this book is more for teens who like ghost stories..Tiggy/CookieScore: 5/5
Teen Beauty, Beast, Ghost, and MysteryDo not think just another version of Beauty and the Beast. Great story of teen girl with sass, brutish teen male who needs an attitude adjustment, and murder mystery with ghosts that bring them together. The story keeps you waiting for what will happen next and turning the pages to see how it ends, or starts again?.Sldca1Score: 5/5

Couldn’t put it down!I read this book on a whim- Apple Books offers the “first book in a series free” section so I read some summaries and decided to download this one. Not going to lie I was hooked from the start and finished the book in 3 sittings. I’m older than the intended audience but enjoyed it thoroughly nonetheless. It is a good story with lovable characters- highly recommend! Sweet and cute with enough action and suspense to keep you reading!.Tory156438Score: 4/5
A modern take on Beauty and the Beast!This is a great young adult read! It mixed mystery and suspense with teen romance and the standards of our favourite fairytales..S. YukiScore: 5/5
The Book is Worth BuyingThis is overall a very good book. It has a few minor flaws, such as a lack of red herrings, but those flaws don't detract much from the book. Is this my new ultimate favourite book? No. Is it worth purchasing? Yes. Despite getting this book for free, if I had known I would enjoy the book so much, I would have spent the money to purchase it. I will definitely be rereading this novel at some future time. If you're wondering if you should make this purchase--I say go for it..LeelaSummersScore: 4/5
