Be careful...the cover really implies that this is supposed to be a retold version of Beauty and the Beast Steampunk, Urban Fantasy style. While I agree to the Urban Fantasy, I wouldn’t exactly say this is Steampunk. That being said this is an Adult Romance that is mind blowing breath taking and beautiful. I don't want to give a lot of details but amazing does not describe this book! The writing isgreat and the plot is well planned and executed. I loved both Jolie and Hauk. They were both well-developed characters. There were several secondary characters that added to the book.
There was not HEA for this Beauty and this Beast but maybe in the next book....I had to keep that in mind when rating this book since this was a good start to a new series, but my only criticism was that I was left wanting...wanting to know more of the mystery about Hauk and wanting more of the relationship between Jolie and Hauk. I can only hope as I wait for the next books in the series.
Expected publication of How Beauty Saved the Beast (Tales of the Underlight #2): February 2013; Followed up shortly by How Beauty Loved the Beast (Tales of the Underlight #3) : May 2013.
I know that there are some other reviewer commenting about the narrator. He definitely isn't the worst narrator that I listen to not that bad but the stories are so worth it. If you're a fan of either series it is a must download
It's a good funny read with substance. A little behind the scenes sub plot to the "have to mate curse. ". It's a toss up which I like better book one or this one but I will make sure I read/listen the next book in the series.
Where do I begin. It was just horrible. To some up this book it was full of drugs booze the main character loves to strip and her alpha male is ok with it and although she was beaten and raped she's ok and turned on by violence. This was a waste.
Good narrator of one of my favorite pieces of literature. There are several versions of this on audible all by various readers and this one was authentic and a pleasant listen.
The concept of the book and the series is intriguing, I just wish that it had been more interesting and fast paced. I love CW and really wanted to love this book but it just didn’t turn out that way, I did enjoy it as most of the storyline was good but I felt that the quick discover as notes in the book to explain what an ancient gargoyle never knew to be an afterthought and just fell short and way too hurried for something so important. I understand that a lot of background had to be laid in this book and I did enjoy the book although it was slow going at times so I will check out the next book in the series, to see what happens from here.
One of the things I adored about this book was the very different fatal disease that Marie had. I’ve read books before where people have cancer, or something of the sort, but never before had I ever heard of fatal insomnia. Who would have ever thought such a thing existed? It was so unique and different!
The sexy times are pretty hot and well written, and affectionate. In romance miscommunication is always a factor, so that is in there. But I really enjoyed the story and stayed up well past my bedtime to find out what would happen; while who Marie would hook up with was apparent, the outcome was not.
I thoroughly enjoyed both Marie & Josh. Their story was simply riveting. Must Love Fangs is a page turner, sexy and fun. Can't get enough of this series. Definitely a must read for paranormal lovers.
I think this was my favorite of the series.
This is a simple straight forward hot little romance set in the west. There is an instant attraction and there are no major struggles or any angst. It's nice to read ones like this that is just a hot sexy story. This is part of a series and I have almost all of them so I do feel invested I these characters. Other stories in the series have more substance but this one has the most heat.
THIS IS A MUST SERIES!!!
There is so much laugh-out-loud fun and by far the best dialogue I've heard in a very long time. (And Tavia Gilbert does an AWESOME job) Brilliant!
Sexy vampires (Bones OH....on the top list of PNR BF lists) and a kick-ass heroine.
Even if the paranormal genre is NOT YOUR favorite - this author's writing style and fantastic sense of humor will draw you into the world with vampires.
And I have to end this review with one of my favorite quotes ... "Lucifer's bouncing balls, Kitten, not again!" <<< Still makes me laugh out loud!
Why oh why doesn't this book have a series following it.
This is a little dark, very inventive, alternate-universe/vampire novel
Ever since I first picked it up, I re-listened to Sunshine every few months, and it never ceases to enthrall and delight me. It has become one of my favorite books of all time.
Don't even hesitate....this was AWESOME. This is one of those books I really don't want to even review as to not give anything away...so many HOT scenes, twits and turns. I never use credits for anything under a certain price...but if you only use credits, even though this is a title under $10, it is SO worth it!
