This is my first Jessica Collins books and I enjoyed it! Let me first start off with that I thought this would be about sleeping beauty so when I started reading it and saw where I had made my mistake I was like *in my Mathew McConaughey voice* alright alright alright!! I'm a huge fan of Beauty and the Beast and this one was great with its modern twist. I have been on a quest to find as many B&tB themed books to see how the author puts their own twist to it and this author has done a great job making this her own brand of story. This will be an author I put on my watch list so I can make sure I get my hands on more of her work.
