I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Xandrie!
Xandrie truly outdid herself in this one! It was the complete package; action, plot, suspense, intrigue, and steamy scenes! She may have even crossed over to the hot and steamy naughty side if you catch my drift - *wink*.
Beauty & Beast is the sequel to The Fervor and features Camilla and West. Camilla is such a badass sassy chick and I love her. She is so brave and devoted to the people she cares about, and it was really apparent throughout the read. She is somewhat who I aspire to be like - always having great retorts and having people's backs.
The plot of the story was riveting and natural, moving not too fast, but not at a snails pace either. I believe that Xandrie's conciseness makes her a great author.
With every book Xandrie writes, her writing gets more and more confident and fluid. She is growing as a writer and finding that lexical rhythm that is her own (I should totally trademark that, because it's gold). She is trying out new things and seeing what works and what doesn't; feeling out her limitations and figuring out ways to always push them.
