Book Review: A Beauty So Beastly (The Beastly Series #1) by RaShelle Workman

Book 1 in the Beastly Series

“For your vanity, your cruelty, and your cold unfeeling heart, a curse I leave upon you . . .”

What happens if the beauty is also the beast?

The stunning Beatrice Cavanaugh is considered American royalty. She has everything except the ability to love. Cursed on her eighteenth birthday, she becomes more beastly than ever, having a newfound craving for raw meat, and an undeniable yearning for the night. Bitterness is her only companion.

After accusing a maid of stealing, a disgustingly kind and exquisitely handsome guy named Adam shows up asking Beatrice to drop the charges against his mother.

Infuriated by his goodness, Beatrice vows to break him. Destroy him. Make him hurt the way she hurts. So she agrees. On one condition: Adam must take his mother’s place as a servant in the mansion.

Because Beatrice won’t stop until he’s more beastly than she is. 

About the Author: RaShelle Workman

RaShelle Workman is the author of the popular Blood and Snow series. She loves to reinvent fairy tales teens and adults can sink their teeth into. Her stories include kissing, vampires, werewolves, witches, aliens, and more kissing. Her books: Sleeping Roses, Exiled, Beguiled, and Dovetailed have foreign rights contracts with a Turkish publisher. RaShelle is also one of the co-founders of Indie Recon LIVE, a self publishing conference that will debut October 10-11, 2014 in Sandy, Utah.

My Review:  I am thoroughly enjoying the revisiting of old tales I grew up with and seeing how they twist.  RaShelle has a very outstanding approach to looking outside the proverbial box and just when you think the storyline is gonna settle down...another twist.  I also love how this is a separate series from Blood and Snow but also entwines by showing you Troy and how Cole went missing.  Very exciting to see and I look forward to seeing more stories with Troy and Cole as well.  I do hope to see more of the other brothers from Blood and Snow too!  I enjoyed this book and will be following all new releases from both series.
