Another one knocked out fo the park by Zoey Castile. I love that this series always eaves my full of the swoon and the sexy. She does the perfect combination and truly I love her words.
Another reviewer said this is a modern twist on Beauty and the Beast and after I read that, it stuck with me. Not the magic or the genre of story, but the character roles were spot on.
I loved Lena and Patrick. They were this dynamic that you love even when you can't stand some of their decision making and just yell at the book while you laugh at their antics. Cough* Patrick* Cough
But really, they were both fantastic characters and the story was fun and compelling. I loved that this had so many fun trope twisted into it and with how completely obsessed I was with the characters, I knew Iw as a goner the second I sTARTED IT.
