This was a great story. I was not aue if i should purchase it because of the negative negative reviews but am glad i took a chance and purchased it. There are spelling errors and a few times youll find an extra word in a sentence but if you can read over those like me you can get over it an enjoy the story.

I felt like the characters were in high school not college. The writing was amateurish at best and the dialogue was ridiculous. It would have been a tween book except fir the random sex scenes thrown in

The characters were amazing! You fall in love with Declan and Teagan from the start! The story makes you feel 19 again on the cusp of love and life! All of the characters were well established for a first in a series. By the end of the book you know everyone well almost like they are your family. Teagan is great and real and misunderstood. Declan is a little hard to be completely believable at the start but that changes quick. Young love with passion like that is hard to write accurately but she did an amazing job! So anxious for Caden and Jadens book!

I took a chance on this book and liked it a lot! It seemed more like a teen book than a young adult novel. But for anyone that likes any kind of young love senarios this is for you! It does have a few grammatic error but was still enjoyable. Fyi it is over 300 pages :)

The writing and grammar were both atrocious...I really felt like I was reading a book written by a middle school student. There was potential but the auther kept everything surface level and never added depth. I felt like I kept reading the same crap over and over. Don't waste time or money on this book...you will likely be disappointed!

I don't write reviews very often. I thought I'd take a chance on this book because of some of the positive reviews but boy was I disappointed. I kept asking myself if the author was 16, but when I realized it was an actual adult I wondered if she ever even interacted with college students. I'm currently a college student and I'm very involved in clubs and campus life and if any of my friends acted like these characters I would not be friends with them! Nothing about this story was very accurate in my opinion, the leading lady or child more like it was so unlikeable. She was a spoiled rotten brat who had such potential to be a good character. The story had no depth everything was very superficial. I really wasted my time and money on this book don't read it, I'm so tired of everyone trying their hand a 50 shades, please stop.

I had to force myself to finish this book. The characters act like they're in junior high and the dialogue is downright rediculous at times.

The story line had so much potential but the grammar and the way it was written wasn't good at all. I read the reviews and thought, "how had should it be?" Well, it is really bad. Distracting! I wish the author would have it edited and release it again because the story is pretty ok

I read the whole book in about 5 hours with a couple interuptions, and I simply loved every word of it! Its very discriptive in every intense scene. I love the basis of the story but may be a little over dramatic for some. I personally fell in love with the way the author describes Teagen and Decan's love story. I recommend it and hope you all love it as well. Can't wait to read Graces dramatic ending in the 2nd book!

A bit of a quick read, but it was really good.  I enjoyed the characters a lot.  I enjoyed the story line as well.  I'll be looking forward to reading more and will be recommending this book.

My Thoughts: This one had promise, it really did. I thought it did anyway. Boy, was I disappointed. The premise seems interesting enough, right? It should be a nice little secret romance coupled with a good love story, right? Well, it wasn’t. There’s so much that the story could have had going for it but it seemed to bounce all over and go nowhere. The scenes between Teagan and Declan were so put on that it was hard to believe it was real. I found myself thinking, “Okaaay…” all too often when they were together. And the grammar and the wording… don’t get me started. There were certain phrases used in certain scenes that were like WHAT?! Are you kidding me?! Then there was the overuse of words that only need to be used a couple times maximum. Every time they were repeated, I believe I facepalmed. This Beautiful Thing was just not the book for me. I had to skim too much, it got too painful. And the climactic scene near the end that created drama? Um, yeah… what the heck… There was just too much that was unrealistic. I can see some people enjoying it, but if you’re picky about the same things I am, I wouldn’t recommend it. My Rating: It's Okay.

I enjoyed this book.

I liked this book. If the author sounds young like some reviews stated its probably because its from the POV of two 19yr olds. Its nice to read a story where the teenagers in it sound like teens not middle aged. I thought it was a great story and the romance in it felt real and believable. I loved the characters felt real and the story dealt with issues that plague teens and young adults more often these days. It was very relatable. Would have been better and would have given 5 stars if it would have been edited better. Had alot of miss spelled words, grammer and tense problems. Also like one reviwer stated, All my life is by K-Ci and JoJo and Boyz II Men. That was heart breaking since ive been a huge of them since they came out. She should've done her research if she was gonna use real songs and singers in her book. That being said, I still enjoyed reading it alot and if you dont mind some editing errors I highly recommend it for amyone 18 and older. It does have quite a few sex scenes in it but they are not overly graphic.
