Beauty of the Beast (Fairy Tale Retellings #1)
Book Review: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ +Captivating. I couldn't put this little gem down.
The fairytale of Beauty and the Beast we know but that doesn't mean you have read this story. I loved every minute of it and didn't want it to end. It follows the similar storyline of the Disney version. However, the plot is it's own.
Adam lost everything in a fire; his family, his personal possessions and his stunning good looks. He is disfigured- The beast. He turned his back on the world years ago.
Isabelle just wants to look after her sick father. She is willing to do whatever it takes. Isabelle is even willing to sell her soul to the devil. She dreams of finding true love, but her nightmares are becoming closer to reality.
This book is described as a dark re-telling of the story. However, I have to say it doesn't come close to Disfigured love by Georgia Le Carre. This book is a little dark, but there is also a lot of love. I have read quite a few Beauty and the Beast books and this is definitely one of my favourites (the other being Broken by Lauren Layne which is completely different to this).
I would say the intend audience for this beauty is 18+.
5+ stars out of 5. I couldn't get enough of this and I would definitely consider reading more by this author. Not many books make it onto my Goodreads favourite shelf but this one easily slides on. Thanks Netgalley for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
