How Beauty Loved the Beast (Tales of the Underlight, #3) - Jax Garren I really, really, really enjoyed this series. The problem I have with most romance books (of any genre) is the cheese factor. The book can be angsty as fuck. The main characters won't be able to express their feelings for 3/4 of the book, and then BAM! an epiphany is had, and the last 50 pages are filled with "I love you. You make the sun rise, and the wind blow. You're the reason my heart beats. I never knew what love was until I found you. Blah, blah, blah, more cheese on heart shaped crackers."And I'm like, gag me...That was not a problem with this book. The moments were tender. They were real, and they felt true to character. Such a fabulous end to a fabulous story.(I also feel like one of the character's fate was left open so that the author could write a spin off, which would be verah interesting.)
