Kindle Edition-272 Pages
She never should have come here. Twice a week, Lily Moore comes to work for me, stealing my breath with her light and beauty and sweetness. She doesn’t know the dangerous path she’s on. All she knows is that I am a reclusive artist living on a crumbling estate. That I am scarred, broken by life. A beast . . .
Lily ignites a hunger unlike anything I’ve known, one that could shatter the isolated world I live in. Even as I see the same longing for me in her oh-so-blue eyes, I know she belongs to another—one who does not deserve her. But it’s just a matter of time before the tension between us breaks. For this beast will have what he desires. To hell with the consequences. This is my world . . . and I will claim my beauty.
ARC BOOK REVIEW
Aw “His Beauty” made my heart hurt it was just so charming and heart-warming in all its entirety.
So, If a book or movie mentions beauty and the beast at all in its blurb or comparison then I’m totally sold on the concept and seen as this is my all-time favourite fairy tale I so couldn’t justify passing the opportunity up to add another notch to my already overflowing belt.
So this was a rather easy read that’s simplicity just worked.
And I was ecstatic that this ultimately turned out to be a winning experience for me as got to say my last few themed reads have totally crashed and burned.
This did not.
“His Beauty” took an old classic and revived it with a fresh modern sexy spin.
Dragging this “beauty and the beast” themed read kicking and screaming into the current century.
And with Grayson and Lily being such relatable individuals you couldn’t help but fall deeply in love with the whole journey these two lovers took towards there own personal HEA.
Grayson was a tortured scarred recluse waiting grumpily in the wings of his mansion for that special someone that could see past his scars and inner wounds and pull him out of the darkness into the light.
Lily was that light and deserved so much better than what her hand in life had dealt her.
with her fiancee.
Reed was a total tosser and I was urging her on subliminally to dump his loser arse.
Grayson was a sculptor and Lily had such a deep connection with one of his earlier creations “The Lovers”
And Grayson encouraged her on to explore her art and love of photography further, these two just meshed together so well.
Grayson saw the potential in Lily from the start, he saw depths that she had yet to explore.
While Lily, in turn, wanted to help Grayson embrace his true future with her urging him on from his side, whatever it took.
And though this was a slow burn romance it still delivered on all fronts so beautifully.
There was no OW drama and despite appearances no cheating on Lily’s part.
This was also duel POV and though there were minimal secondary characters here, what there were I loved and connected with so much.
Lily’s mum was wonderful and in my opinion, is what has shaped our girl into the person she is.
What a fabulous role model.
I also adored Emilia, she was more like a mum to Grayson and had raised and protected him since his parents died.
Emilia is Grayson’s window to his world, without her help he would struggle to function.
she was so like a mother bear protecting her cub and this was really adorable to watch.
Reed, well he was the only one I detested and I still think he needs a total arse kicking.
I suppose every fairy tale needs a baddie and he really filled that role nicely.
So, In conclusion, this is one of my better “beauty and the beast” reads.
If you’re looking for something to warm your heart give this a try.
It was a lovely simplistic sentimental read that definitely gave me the warm and fuzzies and I am happy to recommend.
Thank You to the Author for providing me with an ARC of “His Beauty” of which I have reviewed voluntary.
