Cute modern twist on a fairytale!

I enjoyed this clean modern twist on Beauty and the Beast. I have listened to other books in the series by Jamie Brook Thompson and found them to be enjoyable. I think that Angie Hickman has a great delivery for these stories. The characters in the story might have some overlap from one book to another, but the focus is on a particular couple for the book. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher, and/or narrator.

Sweet Modern Beauty and the Beast

This is the second book in the Silver Creek Novella Series, and it's a cute modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Belle is a beautician, and she moved from California to Silver Creek a year ago to take a job in a salon. Belle just doesn't fit in the quaint little town with its judgmental matrons and army of Darth Vader helmet style haircuts. Then she meets Adam, a man the town residents call a Beast, living a reclusive life on the outskirts of town. When she's attacked by Gaston, a loan shark to whom her father owes money, she finds an unlikely rescuer.

Give me more male leads like Adam, what a gentleman! He's a broody, shy, sweet mess of a man, just perfect for Belle to take in hand. Belle as a beautician was a clever little twist on Beauty, and her Kindle full of books made me smile. She was a strong character, a fierce fighter protecting her father, not a damsel in distress. In the end it was her own actions and strength that saved them.

Since this is a novella the love story moved quickly over a few days. Even so, Adam and Belle shared some sweet moments, and I can't imagine anything more perfect that reading Pride & Prejudice snuggled in front of a fire while a handsome man feeds me milkshakes. *sigh*

Angie Hickman is an excellent narrator, she has a young voice that fit this series perfectly. She has a good range of character voices, which made it an enjoyable listen. I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
