From the Blurb:
Beautiful Beast is a light tale of lust and love, about a beautiful dancer who keeps a wild beast locked inside him, and the man who sets it free.
Kevin used to hold himself back, trying to keep his less conventional desires to himself. With Joakim, he feels free. It’s almost as if Joakim can read Kevin’s subconscious, touching the right places at exactly the right time, and whispering the most shameless things…filthy, and oh so satisfying.
Falling for Kevin is easy. Joakim can feel it happening and he’s powerless to do anything about it. With every touch, his desire grows. Men have chased him for his money and status before, but Kevin doesn’t seem to care about any of that. Maybe this time, Joakim should let himself fall, and hope the landing will be soft.
Up until now I've loved every single book I've read from Roe Horvat. My reaction to "Beautiful Beast", though, was more complicated.
The characters were likeable but not as interesting as the couples from books #1 and #2.
The plot was solid, if a little too sweet for me and for what I expected.
The pace of the relationship was a lot faster than what I normally prefer to read about but at least they were spending time together and talking a lot so there was a connection.
All in all, every aspect of the book had some pros and some cons and that means that I can't be absolute about the story. However, one thing I'm certain about is that this author knows how to write and I'll keep reading what he creates.
I'm not sure if there'll be more books in this series, but if there are, i hope they'll be less sweet than this one.
