Happy Middle of the Week!
Today I bring you a review of another amazing retelling of Beauty and the Beast, which everyone knows is one of my favorite retellings to read, and this one is no exception. Beauty and the Billionaire by Cidney West, takes the tale of beauty and the beast and gives it a modern twist, yet still keeps the true essence of the original tale.
The book description comes from the Goodreads website:
“A chance meeting in a dark hallway may change both their lives forever.
Mira Harding accepts a temporary housekeeping job at the mysterious Rosefield so she can help take care of her father. Far from the lush residence she expected, the mansion is deteriorating, only three staff members left to keep it in order. With straightforward house rules, Mira has no clue about her reclusive billionaire employer and never expects to see him. So after a mistake throws them together, she’s shocked to realize her job – and her feelings – may get more complicated than she imagined.
Hunter Masseron hasn’t let a stranger into his home since a fateful incident years ago changed his face, and his life, permanently. But when circumstances force him to take on a new staff member, his worst fears come true when he accidentally runs into the pretty young woman now cleaning his house. Despite the potential consequences, Hunter can’t stay away from her. Knowing he can’t keep her at arm’s length forever, he must choose whether to keep to the shadows or open up his heart.”
The characters of Mira and Hunter, carry the essence of Belle and Beast to a T. Cidney has created this modern take on a beloved tale without losing the essence of the original story. While reading the story, I was able to see the the tale come to life in a more modern way, and I have to admit I loved every part of this story. Cidney creates this amazing world that the reader will not want to leave. The tale of Mira and Hunter will grab your heart and you won’t want to put it down until you get to the end. If you love romance, and Beauty and the Beast, then you don’t want to miss this amazing book!
