Beauty and the Beast (Beauty #1-4)

Beauty and the Beast

This is my first time reading a book by Skye Warren and I kind of enjoyed it, but I did wish that there was more character and plot development throughout the book. Blake's character was of a wounded soldier who is struggling to integrate back into society after a horrible accident when in the army and who is lusting after the maid who cleans his house. I personally felt that they did not give enough information on Blake's character and I hated the fact that they completely ignored his PTSD and made the book more about sex than emotions, however I did enjoy his protective alpha male side. Erin's character was a typical college student who is completing her masters and is lusting after her employer whom house she cleans. I also felt that there was a lack of background in Erin character because she sometimes felt emotionless and drab and she was not pushing for Blake to get completely better. The chemistry between Blake and Erin was hot, but the writer put to many sex scenes in the book which lead to both the book and characters to lack depth. Overall this book which had a lot of potential lacked character development and a proper story line.

Rating: 2.5/5


Erin is a college student who cleans the reclusive ex -soldier Blake Morris house every week. Blake is both scarred on the inside and out after a horrible accident in the army and he feels he is no good for the beautiful Erin who cleans his house to pay for college.  All bets are off when Erin walks in on Blake touching himself while moaning her name. 

Blake receives an offer to lecture at his alma mater and he knows this is his chance for him to re-enter society and become worthy of Erin. Erin wants this chance for Blake to heal, but when they both enter the same classroom on the first day they are in for a shock. 

Blake's new found career is now putting Erin's graduation at risk The couple forges ahead and conquers all. In this relationship they discover new found respect for each other as their relationship strengthens. 

As the semester comes to an end Blake and Erin decide to lay low, except Blake's future is up in the air and there is trouble back home for Erin. When the couple is tested they will have to trust each other in order to have a happy ending.
