Blog Tour: Becoming Beauty by Sarah Boucher



Book Description:

Self-centered Bella focuses her attention on beautiful dresses and fabulous balls rather than helping her family earn a living.  And her siblings have had enough! To pay off their father’s debt, they send Bella to a far-off manor where the owner is more like a beast than a man.

As their personalities clash, Bella comes to realize there’s more to the Beast than she could ever have dreamed—if only she can look beneath the surface. And then there’s Jack, the kind servant who helps Bella adjust to her new life, someone Bella could easily fall in love with. But pursuing love may cost Bella her dreams of wealth and beauty. And that’s a price she’s not willing to pay.

Becoming Beauty is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and books & things.


Book Review:

Don't you just love Fairy Tale re-tellings? I do. They are some of my very favorite stories. Becoming Beauty was interesting to me because the heroine at first was just ghastly! That isn't something you see very often in a story, especially in a Fairy Tale.  And then the beast! Bella's and John's taming of Philip was just fun to read about.

Not only was the premise interesting to me, but the writing was really well done. It wasn't choppy or weird. I liked the point-of-view, and I liked the character growth of all the different characters.

Here's the deal though...while it was a great story, and really well written, I just have a thing about love triangles, and awkward situations. I mean, this story was perfect for them, but I was torn between really really liking this story and being dismayed at the triangle and some other things I can't write about without giving things away. I guess the story could have been written without them, but then it wouldn't have been about growth and finding and fighting for the person you want to be and giving up bad character flaws. So the story totally needed them.

So while I would totally recommend this book if you like Fairy Tales, I will caution that if you don't like love triangles this has them.....but it was still a good read.
