Publisher's Summary

He couldn’t face her.

She was too beautiful.

He’d been deformed in a farming accident years ago.

He’d managed to build a successful business on his North Dakota ranch, but clients didn’t need to see him. His sister handled the face of his company.

Until his sister took a vacation and hired an out-of-work supermodel to take her place.

He couldn’t show himself to her. Although after dark he could share his love of the stars with her.

But the more he hides, the more she wants to see.

Can he trust her with his face? Because he’s very close to losing his heart.

Ugly Duckling Became Beauty & Falls for the Beast

This was a take on beauty in the beast except beauty used to be an ugly duckling and the “beast” will never magically transform back into a handsome whole man again. I admired Morgan for standing up for her principles and not wearing see through clothes on stage even though it meant the end of her career. However, I was disgusted that she likes cow tongue. Walking away from a modeling career meant she had the opportunity to work for and meet reclusive Ford, who has a brilliant mind and a generous heart. I loved all the unwanted animals he took in like the old horses, Lolli the dog that lost a leg, eye, and ear after being hit by a car, and Jack the cat with balance issues. They both wanted to be loved not for what they looked like or what they could bring to a relationship, but for their kind and compassionate hearts.

I loved the narrator who had a smooth rhythm to his reading with nice and funny inflections and he sounded like a natural cowboy with his accent.

Recommended

Of all the stories thus far in this series, I have been most looking forward to this one. Ford is a tough nut to crack. He has so many walls built up around himself even his loving family has not been able to penetrate it. Along comes Morgan. He only said okay to being a temporary assistant because he remembered her as a tall, awkward, plump, girl with glasses. He thought she looked like a dumpling. The shock of seeing she us now a super model? So worth it. I loved it.

One thing a appreciated was although Ford is obsessed with his unsightlyness and yes he feels sorry for himself to the extreme at times. In this story he doesn't talk about adnausim. What is there feels understandable and real. Morgan reacts to appropriately.

Jay Dyess did a fine job bringing the story to life.

I recieved a free Audible copy of this story, at my request, in exchange for a honest review.

a wonderfully heartwarming story

A wonderful engaging heartwarming and inspiring clean romance story. This well written interesting story had me engaged from beginning to end with its beauty and the beast modern storyline. This journey of these two experiencing trust and love as an ugly duckling that became beautiful and a handsome outgoing man help each other. The characters were well developed, interesting and have great chemistry with cameos from previous characters in the series in this standalone. I listened to this wonderfully narrated story and definitely plan on listening to more in the series as the narrator does an excellent job of portraying voices and scenes so vividly I started to feel part of the story.

love!

I previously read this book and loved it then, and I think I might love it even more now having listened to it. This is one of my favorite stories of the series, and this narrator is just really fantastic for it. He has such a rich sounding voice, it would make me want to listen to just about anything he narrates. And I love the fact that there were sound effects! I've never had that in a book before, but it totally made sense to do it. I loved it

Ford meets his match.

This is such a great book and part of a fun series. Ford the grumpy Beast and Morgan the beautiful belle. She’s sees past his scars from a horrendous farming accident to appreciate the man within. My favorite line went approximately like this - he was so beautiful that the angels had to make it so mere mortals could even look at him. Great narration.

It's what's inside that counts!

This is a sweet, contemporary Beauty & the Beast romance, and I loved the adaptations that the author made to make it work in a modern setting - they were well thought out & made it more believable.

I think it might have been better, more plausible, for Georgia to be on a 2 month European tour & to have had to find a last minute replacement for her originally planned temporary replacement which would then end up being Morgan, in order to give Morgan & Ford a more realistic time frame in which to develop an interest in each other. Still, I was happy for them to get together - they made a wonderful pair.

I loved the theme that they had both suffered from people's superficial judgments on their appearances, & therefore they could relate to each other to a fair extent - & were better disposed than most people to see beyond the surface.

Overall , even though I had a few issues, it left me feeling happy & I count this among the better adaptations of one of my favorite fairytales.

The epilogue is more of a sneak peek for the next book, but I am looking forward to Georgia & Sawyer's story.

*Clean romance level: sweet kisses

[The narrator has a great voice & did an excellent job depicting the different characters' voices within the story!]
