Since reading Jenniffer Wardell’s debut novel Fairy Godmother’s Inc. from Jolly Fish Press, I’ve been dying to get my hands on another book by her. Today is that day! I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review from the author and I cannot wait to share that with you. Before I do, let me tell you about Beast Charming.
Beast Charming by Jenniffer Wardell will be released on March 17, 2015 via Amazon
Book Launch Party: B&N Layton, UT, March 28, 2015 from 2-4pm
Genre: Fantasy Romance, Humorous
Deleted Scenes from Beast Charming: Deleted Scenes Part 1 and Deleted Scences Part 2.
Summary: Beast Charming tells the story of Beauty, who works as a temp at an agency run by a high-tempered dragon. To avoid running into her conniving and desperately-craving-for-nobility father—conveniently named Noble—she takes on a peculiar job that will force her to converse with a violent beast named, well, Beast. The rest of the story develops into a hysterical tale of a classic fairy tale romance gone modernly awry.
My Review: What do you do when your father schemes every step of the way to get HIS happily ever after? Beauty’s father is a liar and a cheat. He has tried her whole life to use his daughters to gain riches in the world. When the novel opens we find Beauty working for a temp agency. Will her next assignment be the one that will free them from his grasp?
Beast Charming is a great twist on the classic Beauty and the Beast fairy tale. This book stays true to the overall aspects but adds enough twists and turns to make it memorable. Wardell’s writing and whit are unmatched in any retelling I’ve encountered so far. Her characters are REAL and exaggerated at the same time.
You will fall in love with Waverly, Beast, Beauty, Grace, Manny, and Steve. The banter. The scenery. And if you’ve already read Fairy Godmother’s, Inc. you’ll see nods to that story as well. I cannot wait to see what the author comes up with next. This story is about finding your happily ever after regardless of what someone looks like or is perceived in being.
Loved reading this book. Lots of LOL moments. I give it 4 stars!
