    Awesome Modern Day Fairy Tale This is the first novel I've read by Mrs. King-Bey and I must admit when I first read the books description, I thought who wants to read about a guy who suffers with a bipolar disorder and a woman that's been horribly disfigured, however, I must also admit I am definitely impressed, this novel was beautifully written. In BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, Deatri King-Bey brings to light a story about finding the true beauty within.

In BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, Deatri King-Bey brings to light a story about finding the true beauty within. This novel was so realistic and thought provoking. It had me crying and LOL at some of Bruce and Nefertiti's antics. The emotion and love that was portrayed throughout this novel between Bruce and Nefertiti was just overwhelming. Despite the 'flaws' Bruce and Nefertiti suffered, be it physical or emotional, they were able to see pass all that and open their hearts to one another to a deep and unconditional love. This novel raised awareness about the bipolar disorder, it had mystery, action, humor and definitely some HOT and steamy love scenes. A real page turner that I couldn't put down until I was finished. Definitely a novel for the hopeless romantic and those that believe in fairy tales. Thanks for a real eye-opener, Mrs. King-Bey!

    is there a -3 stars ? I did not enjoy this book. As I put in my review just past the 1/2 way mark. There are so many things wrong, on so many levels. I would not have mentioned the bi-polar thing except at the end of this book the author made point of noting it. (I am sorry if you are going to write about a mental illness, having somebody through a few fits doesn't cut it) The plot of this book is soft, and all over the place. There are no strong characters; there are little bits of too many peo is there a -3 stars ? I did not enjoy this book. As I put in my review just past the 1/2 way mark.

I could not endure anymore stupid plot lines. :( don't think I'll even bother giving this writer a second read.... :( yes that bad

    This book was very enjoyable. This was a quiet book about true friendship and true beauty. It was about self worth and learning to love yourself with all your affliction. This book was also about taking the high road and being the bigger person, about given people a second chance in life to do the right thing. A true love story all the way around.

    So I decided to review this while reading this because I know I will forget all the goodies I need to remember. Now this is just something that annoyed me to no end: what is up with the lack of physical description with these characters! Now I don't know if I'm the only one but I had no clue that Bruce was black. It took an unimportant comment that his mom read Ebony for me to go "Wait a minute..."

Now this is just something that annoyed me to no end: what is up with the lack of physical description with these characters! Now I don't know if I'm the only one but I had no clue that Bruce was black. It took an unimportant comment that his mom read Ebony for me to go "Wait a minute..." I honestly don't know if I just read over the description but I didn't know anybody's race but the female protagonist. To appease my ego I will say I saw this book in a interracial romance read list so..assumptions and all that. But since that doesn't matter in the context of my rating I shall proceed to other things that interested me. I must say as weird as it is I loved the ninja love in this book! I thought it was really endearing to see the characters act so silly with each other. Things I'm On The Fence About Now I'm not sure how I feel about all the divergences from the main character's story. I won't say some instances weren't insightful, but it seemed so random to me when the POV change occurred that I was really thrown off. Another thing I'm not sure about was the random uses of slang the characters seem to have at random moments. It was just incongruous to me, though the "Brotha hugs" made me laugh. Things I didn't like so much These fights the two characters would get into seemed to disappear on the next page to be explain away in a sentence or two. To me I felt like a was cheated out of a moment to see theses characters grow. This also leads me to how confusing it was starting this book I almost thought I skipped some of the prologue because all the relationships go back decades and the most important event has already occurred. I guess it allowed more action to be in the novel I just can't help but fell left out. Now to end this review I do want to mention the fact that I liked the story as a whole. I laughed and felt for the characters. I liked that this book took twists and turns that kept me interested because with some romance books it gets boring. I got more intrigued as this story went along. I liked that real issues were touched upon though some of the situations got tidied up fairly easily in my opinion. This was a pretty good read.

    I enjoyed this twist on the typical Beauty and the Beast theme. The hero has some disorder where he has uncontrollable rage. The heroine is a life-long friend who has been injured in a brutal attack. There are multiple sub-plots that were a little distracting, but the love story was very good. I think it was so great how accepting they were of each other's flaws. A good, solid read. I enjoyed this twist on the typical Beauty and the Beast theme.

    I have to say I really really liked this book. Nefertiti and Bruce was so in love only they understood each other and able to calm each other. It also touches on mood disorders as well as beauty in a different light. I have to say I have read this book several times and I have recommended it to other readers

    It's not a bad read for me personally took me a while to get into but it was still and enjoyable read for me Nefertiti was courageous for what she went through and Max a harmless Teddy bear at heart.

    Only love could have put up with Bruce's outburst. But he redeemed himself in how he took care of Nef. I enjoyed this book. Only love could have put up with Bruce's outburst. But he redeemed himself in how he took care of Nef. I enjoyed this book.

    I love a haunted hero and heroine. One had scars on the outside and the other on the inside. I loved them both. The supporting characters were also good.
