Read It Rate It Reviews:Β I have had Beauty Dates the Beast since 2013—I am sad it took me so long to read as it was delightfully funny! Fans of Molly Harper would enjoy this!!! I broke out laughing so many times during the story. Bathsheba (yes that is her name) was a great leading lady because I think most people could identify with her. She just wanted to keep her family safe, go to work, and survive a life she didn’t plan. Her sister–OMG am I looking forward to her story–she wouldn’t trade for the world even with all the trouble she brings. I just loved that about her. I also think by the end of the book that Beau had won me over. I swooned at their romance and teared up when they finally got it!

Audio Thoughts

Narrated By Leah Mallach/Length: 7 hrs and 55 mins

Leah did an excellent job with the narration but I am extremely picky with my West Texas accent since I grew up there. It wasn’t quite right though if you weren’t from there, you would never know. So totally a regional thing. She had great pacing and delivery though. I would totally listen to her again.

  1. WHOOT!!! WHOOT!!!! I just want to do a happy dance after reading your review of this one. I loved it, I discovered it when it first came out at B&N, bought it, and read it that day and its still a story I can re read when the mood strikes me. I love the humor….utterly fabulous. I loved both the hero and heroine, did you love the picnic scene in the snow?? I thought that was hilarious. And yes Sara and Ramsey’s book is great too!!! The whole series is wonderful. Its so fun to see the growth of the series and her novella’s are well done. I hear ya on the narrator though even if I am not from the south. I listened to the fourth one I think? it was good but it took me a while to adjust to the accent, just didn’t seem to fit quite right. Hope you enjoy the rest of the series~~~ Fab review hun.

    • Sara and Ramsey’s book is on my Christmas list πŸ˜‰ I really enjoyed this and giggled A LOT! That whole picnic was just so perfect for them πŸ™‚ I mean it just had to happen that way LOL

    Your tweaked my interest so I’ll be checking this out. And your comment about West Texas caught my eye, too. I’m from Kermit, outside of Odessa. Where are you from, if you don’t mind telling?

    • Oh I don’t mind πŸ™‚ I grew up in Robert Lee which is 30 min outside of San Angelo. I am very familiar with Kermit πŸ™‚ This story takes place in Lubbock where I have a bunch of family so it was fun on that level too.

        Well, now I’m REALLY interested in this one. I went to Tech for a year and one of my sisters lived there for over 40 years, so I’m invested. πŸ˜‰
        And now I have to tell you that when I moved to El Paso and finished college and taught (for 34 years) , everyone thought my husband and I had the most blatant accents. El Pasoans really don’t have accents like West Texans do, and I was constantly teased about it. Now that we’ve lived in Ft. Worth for a couple of years, no one says a thing. Hmm. I wonder why!
        Have a great weekend.

        • That is true. Growing up we would visit Salt Flats all the time and they thought we had the strangest accents. I tend to think Eastern Texans have a more pronounced (like Tyler) accent but when I moved to CA they would tease me endlessly LOL πŸ™‚
