Adeline by Christina McKnight

WHEN THE BEAST WITH A HEART OF GOLD

Everything changed for Jasper Benedict, the Earl of Ailesbury, the night his family died in a tragic fire--the same fire that left him disfigured. Now, his scars have given him the name the Beast of Faversham. But when he stumbles upon a damaged carriage during a tempest, the beautiful woman inside reminds him of the man he wishes he could be: free of his past, and able to love.

TAMES A BEAUTY WITH A WICKED PAST

When her carriage breaks down outside Faversham Abbey, this is just the most recent in a long series of misadventures for Miss Adeline Price. Her beauty hides a fatal flaw: she's quick to judge, and rarely looks beneath the surface. But the longer she's around Jasper, the more she begins to want to be better--someone deserving of him.

But when it comes time to reunite Adeline with her family in London, will Jasper believe that she sees not his scars, but the good, honorable man he is?

Adeline by Christina Mcknight was a sweet story but one I have read before, sort of. The story isn't bad, it just introduces you to a snobby young lady who is full of attitude right before she goes to an etiquette school. Then it cut scenes to her as an adult and who has grown-up mature. I just feel like it almost wasn't even worth reading the first part. Now, this is part of a series. So maybe the introduction ties with the previous books of the series, I don't know I have never read them. I guess that kind of threw me off for the first half of the book. This is another retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Books like that are a classic for a reason. So when you read them you have to find what makes that one special. I think part of what makes this so special is how Jasper is. He is almost like a scared little boy who grew to be a man. So everyone around him cares for him, and he equally tries to take care of them. It's really nice. He is horribly scarred from a fire that took his family away from him. You can genuinely feel the love that he has. As the story continues I did start to like Adeline more as a character. She had been discarded by her family. So both characters are lonely and need a someone of their own. For me, it was Adeline's character that sort of lost it for me. Online I see tons of people do love her character, so maybe I wasn't feeling it personally. I would recommend this book so some of my friends, but only if it was something I think they would be into. It doesn't feel like one of those books to me that you have to tell EVERYONE you know. This was a book that I received from NetGalley to give my honest review.

Jasper Benedict, Earl of Ailesbury, has been known as the Beast of Faversham since he was scarred in a fire that killed his parents. He does everything he can to make life better for the people of his estate and village, but still fear and shun him. Adeline Price is a quite a beauty, on the outside. She is outspoken, selfish, gossipy, and judgmental. The two of them meet when he rescues her from her broken carriage during a fierce storm. During her short stay at his estate, she begins to like Jasper and is unhappy with the way he is treated by the people of the village. By the time they return to London, Adeline has begun to think about her own behavior. Is it possible that being with Jasper can help her become a better person? Adeline is the third book in the Archer’s Creed series. Adeline has been a brat from the start. Jasper is the perfect complement to her personality. She and Jasper are beauty and the beast, but just who is the beauty and who is the beast. The characters, with the exception of Jasper, are familiar. The plot of this story is perfect for our hero and heroine. A lovely story and a good read. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. I voluntarily reviewed it and the comments are my own.

Loved the story! The change that came over Lady Adeline was huge, and falling in love with Jasper helped the situation. There are things I do wish we were able to see, like how the villagers changed their attitude and there was no hint of who Josie will tangle up with! I can't wait to see how the series ends up!

An impressive slight of hand. She flipped the script on me. Adeline pays homage to a classic tale while reversing the roles of the main characters. The hero has a beautiful soul trapped inside of a damaged shell, while the heroine is beautiful on the outside and scarred by ugliness within. Adeline marks the first character of Ms. McKnight's that I did not like at first sight. She was rude, mean spirited and judgmental. Yet to love her is to understand her and through the eyes of a broken man and the heart of a gifted writer, readers are given that chance. Adeline proved that even the ugliest of hearts can change. No matter how many times I hear those words, it never tarnishes the value of the lesson.
