BECOMING BEAUTY is an interesting YA Clean Romance/Fiction. Based on the re-telling of the classic “Beauty and the Beast” fairy tale. An interesting tale to be sure. The characters are engaging as well as enduring. It was interesting to see the growth and the relationships grow between the characters.
The storyline, while, I wouldn’t say it was unique, it was interesting and entertaining. A different insight into an old story.
My only fault, the ending felt a little rushed, but with this said, the author did a great job of tieing up all the loose ends. If you enjoy fairy tales, you will enjoy, “Becoming Beauty”. Ms. Boucher, is a promising author and one to watch for in the future.
