~ REVIEW: Beauty and the Curse by K.M. Fawcett and Cathy Tully ~

20741637

Synopsis

I really liked Chase in this book, instead of calling out all of Anabel’s ugliness, he focuses on what makes her, her. He tries to get to know her before he even tries to hop in to bed with her, which I thought was really sweet. This is a great story to pick up if you’re looking for a quick read and a few chuckles.

Cursed by a jealous witch, wealthy recluse Anabel Charming is destined to grow uglier with each passing year. Only by having sex before her twenty-first birthday can this virgin’s spell be broken. Yet no man will agree to sleep with the humpbacked, pockmarked, one-leg-shorter-than-the-other “Freak of Park Avenue.” 

When handsome Chase Singleton shows up on a quest to retrieve his grandmother’s long-lost talisman, which Anabel now possesses, Anabel is willing to give up the jewel…if Chase agrees to break her curse. With two days left before her chance at a normal life is lost forever, Anabel and Chase discover the reality of beauty, the power of sexual healing, and the meaning of love.

Michele's Review

This book was a quick and easy read that keeps your attention. K.M. Fawcett does a great job with the story and getting you as much information as she could in this short story. Add some humor in the mix and it’s a great read.

Chase is on the hunt to get his grandma’s talisman back to her before Halloween, otherwise she will die. He loves his grandma and will do anything for her, however what’s asked of him is nothing he ever dreamed of having to do.

Anabel is approaching her 21st birthday and on the prowl for a man to have sex with her. If she doesn’t have sex with a man before her 21st birthday, she’s stuck being ugly forever. However, when you have a hunchback, liver spots and uneven legs, it doesn’t make you the most attractive person. So when Chase shows up at her door, she gives him an ultimatum, have sex with her or she won’t give him what he wants. Only problem is, Anabel has never seduced a man before, so she’s stuck taking advice from a fire breathing dragon who is in love with the movie Grease. The things he tells her are hilarious!

After everything is agreed upon, something else is added to the mix that neither expected.

I really liked Chase in this book, instead of calling out all of Anabel’s ugliness, he focuses on what makes her, her. He tries to get to know her before he even tries to hop in to bed with her, which I thought was really sweet. This is a great story to pick up if you’re looking for a quick read and a few chuckles.

At six years old, she would beg her parents to take her to a restaurant with, “Soft music and candles” where she could drink Shirley Temples and twirl on the dance floor. As she grew, her desire to be whisked into a romantic adventure by a knight in shining armor also grew – to the point of annoying her friends and family. When she received A Knight In Shining Armor (a novel by Jude Deveraux) for her eighteenth birthday, she fell in love…with the romance genre. ♥ Now K.M. writes sci-fi/ paranormal romances, and enjoys stories filled with adventure and strong, kick butt heroes and heroines.
