When Beauty Tamed the Beast by Eloisa James

When Beauty Tamed the Beast (Fairy Tales, #2)When Beauty Tamed the Beast by Eloisa James
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Got this at the library, cuz I’m too cheap to buy it & read it with some dignity on my Kindle.
It’s actually way more bubble-gum-pink and lavender than it looks in the picture. Told the librarian, “um…yeah, one of my Goodreads friends told me this was good.” Silence.
“It’s a Beauty & the Beast retelling.” Nods. Silently shames me.

This was a surprisingly fun book to read! Author’s note at the end said that Piers, the cranky beast of a doctor, was based on Dr. House from the TV series. He’s brilliant, in constant pain, and a total a-hole.

Linette wasn’t a typical, boring Mary Sue. She wasn’t afraid to dish it right back at him, resulting in the the kind of witty banter that I love.

Witty banter maketh the romance novel. Seriously. Think of Elizabeth Bennett. Darcy admired her fine grey eyes, but it was her intelligent wit that he couldn’t resist!
