Belle works hard to keep his family‘s beauty company afloat but when his father drinks and gambles away everything faster than Belle can fix them a catastrophe is just waiting to happen.  When Belle is lost in a high stakes poker game to the enemy he dose not know what to do. He cannot fix what his father has done and he cannot afford to not go and work for Magnus Strong. Some how Belle must figure out what to do.  Emotions run high and trust is earned and Belle begins to question his loyalties to the family that does not seem to care enough about him and his future just theirs. What will happen now? Will Belle follow his heart and fight for love?

This is a wonderful take on one of my favorite fairy tales. I truly enjoyed meeting Belle and Magnus. They each endeared themselves to this reader right from the start. Magnus is a good man and hides behind his scars, never letting anyone see the real man inside. Only those closest to him are lucky enough to get a glimpse of his true kindness. All anyone sees is the scars on his face they never look beyond to the man inside but Belle does. Belle quickly sees what a good man Magnus is but will he fight for him? I loved watching Belle and Magnus find their way. The road to their happiness is rocky but if they believe in each other love may find its way.  Not only was Magnus and Belle’s relationship a great read but I also enjoyed many of the secondary characters. Their interactions made for a great read and of course seeing Mr. P again is always a nice addition to the story. Friendship and loyalty go a long way and Belle and Magnus have an abundance of both. I enjoyed watching Magnus and Belle’s bond grow into something much deeper than just attraction.

Once again Tara Lain has woven a wondrous tale full of great characters and emotions that grabs the reader and don’t let go until the very end.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
