Overview

"I am not beautiful..." Knife's entire existence has been as twisted as his flesh and his face. The only thing beautiful in his life is his sister. When Gwennie is obliged to turn a suitor down because she fears to leave her brother to the brutality of their village, Knife is desperate for anything to ensure her happiness. Her suitor's cousin offers him a way out, but it won't be easy. Aerie-Smith has been cursed to walk upright in the form of a beast, and his beloved village suffers from the same spell. Aerie-Smith offers Gwen a trousseau and some hope, if only Knife will keep him company on his island for the span of a year and perform one "regrettable task" at year's end. Knife is unprepared for the form the island's curse takes on his own misshapen body. In one moment of magic, he is given the body of his dreams--and he discovers that where flesh meets spirit and appearance meet reality, sometimes the only place to find truth is in the darkness of a lover's arms.

One of the best books I have read in a while. Amy Lane is my favorite author. Her characters are so real and you identify with them easily. This book made me cry...in a good way.

I loved the emotions in this story. Aerie-Smith's island brought to mind elements of Beauty of the Beast but so much better. Naef/Knife is filled with so much anger, and who can blame him after what he suffered in his childhood but watching him find happiness is heartwarming. Together they begin to find a life filled with all kinds of goodness but will it last? As soon as Aerie-Smith mentions "regrettable task" I had an idea of where the story was going but even seeing it coming I still found myself balling my eyes out when the moment happened. But the story doesn't end there but will it be a HEA? That you will have to find out for yourself, and trust me you definitely will want too.

Reviewed by Christina Marie at The Morning After Romance: Tugs at the heartstrings! Damn. Amy Lane punches me right in the emotions EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. So, it took me awhile to get into this. I actually thought for a second that I finally found an Amy Lane book I didn't like (not that I was looking). I think I was just having some trouble connecting with the characters for a little bit. That was quickly remedied. Somewhere around 20% I was dragged fully into the story, and I did end up really enjoying this. And then, towards the end, I could not stop crying. Not sad tears. No. Those borderline happy, sentimental, why the hell won't my eyes stop leaking type tears. The worst. But so good. I'm still all sappy and emotional. I just want to say that this was a little heartstring pulling morsel you should probably go read. Like, right now. Go on. 3 Stars

3.5 stars - Really beautiful story about not beautiful people for a change. This had a beauty-and-the-beast theme to it but I like that it had a realistic happily ever after, as opposed to the Disney happily ever after.
