This was a fun little story! I love fairy tale relabellings, and this one I read in one sitting.
Nissa is a plain girl, with a dark past. She's attracted to the local 'beast,' but feels that he doesn't desire her back. Little does she know that he makes a deal with a fairy to get rid of his scars, so he can feel worthy of her. He's then changed into a beautiful man - a girlie man if you will.When I heard 'beautiful man,' this was who I first pictured.
I really enjoyed the chemistry between the two characters, and their love seemed geniune. I cannot tell you how tired I am of 'love at first site' clique romances - I love that these characters were flawed physically.
And I got my HEA, so I'm happy.
