18 plus review.3.5 stars. Okay, call me crazy, but this one I liked even more than the Rapunzel story, which seems to be everyone's favorite of the series. Yes, the Rapunzel book was sweeter and more touching because of the cancer survivor spin, but I liked the darker feel of Beauty. There was something about the female lead being trapped out in a cabin in the woods with a disfigured hero that made for a good story. Neither one of them could venture far, for fear of the hero's evil brother finding them. Why were they in hiding? Well, you just have to read the story to find out.This series is on the tamer side when comparing it to other Kitt books. There are sex scenes, but only a couple. I'd almost say this is more like a suspense romance with a steamier side. Definitely a good pick for those who prefer erotica lite.
