In the first book they told us that ACOTAR was a retelling of the Beauty and the Beast story but we don’t know what retelling is ACPMAF….
I’ve been thinking that perhaps both books create the complete retelling, here I live you what I would think the characters are:
Feyre - Belle
Rhys - Beast
Tamlin - Gaston
The inner cycle - members of the castle (lumier, potts, etc)
Lucien - LeFou
If you give it a chance you can see Rhys we thought he was the bad guy at the beginning as we do with the beast in Beauty and the Beast story and Tamlin in ACOMAF acts exactly like Gaston; The inner circle supports Rhys as all the dishes and stuff do with the beast as LeFou and Lucien to Gaston and Tamlin, and well Feyre is exactly like Belle.
I know is an Hades an Persephone retelling but beauty and the beast fits perfectly.

Upon realizing that Nathaniel
Thorn is still looking into Storybrooke, Evelyn understands that
natives of the other realms are unaffected by the spell, prompting
her to investigate his true identity. Emma and Mr. Gold meet with
Jefferson and Alice in Boston, both of whom are reluctant to divulge
too much information about realm-jumping. They do, however, reveal
that there are always three jumpers at a time, for the three Lands of
Wonder, Never, and Oz – Alice, Peter, and Dorothy were the most
recent, and before them were Hightopp, Tinker Bell, and Glinda.
Nathaniel Thorn leaves Storybrooke to seek out Regina in Salem and he
invites her to join his campaign to expose Storybrooke – but the
two soon find common ground they didn’t expect. Regina decides to
return to retake her home alongside a man who seems to resent the
town almost as much as she now does.
When mermaids attack the ship
during a terrifying storm, Killian manages to capture one of them, a
beautiful siren with fiery hair who identifies herself as Ariel, the
youngest daughter of the sea king. Baelfire learns that Ariel has
been watching them from afar and has developed an infatuation with
Killian. As the mermaid princess grapples with her bloodthirsty
nature and a painful transformation into human form caused by a
prolonged absence from the water, the pirates gradually begin to earn
her trust – until Peter Pan exposes the romance between Baelfire
and Killian. Devastated, Ariel attempts to return to her home in the
sea, but she has become too human and can no longer breathe
underwater. The pirates are horrified when they find her body
floating in the water the next morning.

What I love most about this, is the soft look on his face as she mentions her nervousness over the consummation. How he’s reaching out his hand for hers, just nearly out of frame. He cares. And that’s not something she expected.
