There was a great deal in the book which had much going for it in the way it handled childhood, parental mega dysfunction and effects and relationship issues.
There was too much included which was a distraction and the plot did not need any of it - the story could well have moved on much better leaving whole chunks out.
Key bits were missing - a phone call about problems to the boss when in another country was just dropped.
There was some marked stereotyping which I found not only very annoying, it allowed a sub-plot to continue in a totally ludicrous and implausible manner. ie - how someone failed to put two and two together to work out the timings of receiving charity donations and who was around at that immediate time.
I also actually enjoyed the fact that it wasn't one long bonk-fest through the book - the passion interludes were more realistic, both in timing and content and truer to relationships.
I would not describe this as any kind of fairy tale at all.
But the main problem is what on earth happened to the ending? It was rubbish and has left a cliff hanger for at least one of the sub characters at least.
I hate to leave a negative review as I know the author must have worked hard. However, having paid for a book based on the reviews and a promising summary I feel I should given my honest opinion. The characters and plot were weak and quite frankly irritating. Insta- love and sex between an employer and an employee with a lot of inner monologue. What I thought would be a strong female lead had some moments but, in the end, was a fairly shallow and disappointing construct; the male lead had promise but turned out to be predictable.
Loved this take on 'Beauty and the Beast' fairy tale by Landish, she has used quite dark themes to justify Thomas aka Beast which I thought she done brilliantly, by the way the original fairytales are very dark, but I thought she treated those themes with sensitivity. I loved her take on Mia aka Beauty, making her a modern heroine, number crunching, anime loving geek was wonderful, making both characters relatable to a wider audience. Also loved the dirty in this dirty fairytale, if you are are easily shocked or offended or just a prude then this is not the book for you but as the title states it is a dirty fairytale and I loved it!! 😁
Wowzer this story yum, it was so well written, with amazing scenes that were sometimes too hot to handle, really enjoyed this one, drama, moments of sadness, it was being played out in my mind, I love when that happens.
Lauren has created an amazing couple who are steeped in chemistry but are also flawed and real! Their coming together and fight to stay together is a true beauty and the beast story! Fabulously written and definitely made me want to read more until I got to the end!
Excellent read. Really enjoyed this book. Loved the storyline and all the characters and loved the connection between them all. Absolutely adored Mia and her punk hair. Also fell in love with Thomas. Glad they had their HEA
