|Fans of New York Times bestselling authors Samantha Young, Sylvia Day, and E. L. James won’t want to miss this modern—and deliciously wicked—take on a classic fairy tale . . .
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.
|The plot of “His Beauty” by Sofia Tate can only be predictable – no spoiler here – because anything that relates to the classic fairy tale has to follow a certain rule. And therefore I think I do not need to say anything else about the plot.
Still the author has her own way of telling the story and it is a moving one.
While I can NOT agree with the blurb that compares this book to Sylvia Day & EL James– because I can not see the special details in this novel – especially when it comes to EL James. I might agree on the comparison to Samantha Young.
The story is told in a well developed way and its characters are moving but there was a tiny spark missing to the plot for me. I could not feel the devastation from the male character and for that kind of novel, this is of great importance to me. Therefore, I am not able to give the book a full 5 star rating.
