Book Summary

A damaged man. A strange young woman. Secrets that can bring them together, or tear them apart.

“This is perfect for girls of all ages. There are valuable lessons throughout the story and the author makes sure to point the readers towards God.”

Ethan’s father did a number on him, to say the least. In his passing, he left Ethan a wealthy man, but a severely damaged one. More than one person has considered him to be “beastly”. Annabelle is unique and could be his only chance at love, but she has secrets of her own. Can they achieve true forgiveness before their world collapses?

“My entire world got zoned out as I fell into the enchanting world of Ethan (the beast) and Annabelle (the beauty) and wow, I was just swept away! I LOVED how the relationship gradually grew…”

“If you love fairy-tales then you will love The Beauty Series!! I highly recommend these books to anyone!! The Beast here is a selfless hero and the villain(s) were quite a surprise.”

“I don’t want to spoil anything, so I will just say that I love the reason why Ethan is a ‘beast’ and that whole backstory was gripping. And I was cheering for these two, with the clever obstacles that kept coming up. If you are looking for a lovely romance story, you’ll love this.”

Book Review by Bree Herron

A unique story base on my favorite tale as old as time. I really loved that there was such love and kindness from our “monster”. Ethan was drawn to Annabelle when he first saw her, then he saved her life. But really she saved his life. He was lost and so was she, but they were able to heal and learn to love together.

There were interesting moments with some wicked sisters, and their annoy acts against these two. But not only did love prevail but so did trust. It was a fast read and I was shocked when I finished the story. I could use a sequel because I was enjoying the story so much.
