Review: Beauty Touched the Beast by Skye Warren


From Goodreads.com Erin cleans Mr. Morris’s house twice a week, soaking up every moment with the reclusive ex-soldier she secretly loves. Blake Morris knows he’s scarred both inside and out and is no good for the beautiful young woman who cleans his house to pay for college. But when Erin walks in on Blake touching himself and moaning her name, all bets are off.

Beauty Touched the Beast is a short erotic story of lovers finding refuge with each other. Not for those under 18 years of age or those uncomfortable with the subject matter.

 My Rating: 1 star out of 5

I found this little novella in the free section of Amazon.com, and having done a promo post recently for the series, I felt compelled to check it out. After spending maybe 30 minutes of my life reading it, I have to say, I wish I didn't promote it.


To start, it seems as though this novella picks up in the middle of a story, not at the beginning (she literally walks in on.. well I'm not going to mention what it was, but this novella is smut without plot plain and simple). 

I found the characters lacking, which was a bitter disappointment because I felt there was a lot of potential there for something really good to develop - it reads more like a one shot smut idea the author wanted to get out on paper without thinking about developing more. There is no spark, no connection between the two main characters, just sex, and sex I'm afraid does not a good book (or novella) make.
