A great version of Beauty and the Beast. I enjoyed this, short and had some nice twists. The nasty ex boy friend thrown in for a touch of exercising the famous face palm move. While I liked both MC's I really liked Emilia and her caring for both of them. The plot had another added piece that was well done and for many I'm sure hits close to home. Nicely done Sofia! **arc from NetGalley and publisher for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.**
Beauty and the Beast has always been a favorite story of mine. Beyond all the CGI of Disney and the obsessive behavior of a Phantom lies a work of art. A timeless classic. Perhaps that's why there are so many variations of the tempting tale. The story packs an ethereal punch with a powerfully relevant message. True beauty can never be tarnished. It comes from within and can be found in the most surprising of places. His Beauty stays true to the wonder of love's healing power, with some twists along the way. Lily is the perfect heroine. A tad naive, but drawn to the beauty of the unique. Grayson is a treasure trapped inside the soul of a wolf. Lily brings out his predatory side, but his scars run deeper than the physical and wider than the emotional. He creates beauty with pure obsessiveness that is hauntingly magical, but can never find that emotion in himself. The seduction lies with the power of the heart and mind. This is a tale that capture the soul and hangs on for dear life. It speaks for itself.
