ARC Review of Filthy Beast by Vanessa Booke
This was a fantastic read from a good author. I know when I pick up one of her books, I will not be disappointed. And it is a modern interpretation /retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Declan Hart is a sensual writer of erotic stories for which he is known for all over the world. In the beginning of the book, we see he is known to be a quite the womanizer before a horrible accident turns him into “the Beast” and quite the recluse. Now we see he is damaged by the accident, and having trouble writing those beautiful stories that he was well known for . Here is where the lovely heroine comes into his life.
Olivia, his editor's assistant to come barging in to his life. Ready to prove to all she has what it takes to bring him back to life and get him on track but will the beast maul the beauty or will the beauty tame the beast? There is so much passion involved, so much modern queues in this story; we see the damage of the past that hurts the present but the spunky and sassy Olivia is bound to prove to the cool and aloof yet damaged Declan she can help if only he will let her. It is a battle of the wills. Who will win- there are twists and turns and the ending was so beautiful with its simplicity at play. What a satisfying ending. I only wish this was a longer book for I was sad there wasn’t more in the book to keep it going.
My rating: 4.0 stars ****
