Review: How Beauty Saved the Beast by Jax Garren (short)

How Beauty Saved the Beast (Tales of the Underlight, #2)How Beauty Saved the Beast by Jax Garren
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I totally loved this one. This is the sequel to How Beauty Met the Beast, and its filled with action and not so subtle romance. A new character comes into play, and its fun watching Jolie grapple with jealousy. I found myself wanting to scream because she is clueless about Hauks feelings for her, and vice versa.There really isnt much to say about how awesome this book is without giving anything away. Just, trust me on this one.

I'm left stunned many times, and the ending is TO DIE FOR! If you haven't read any of the books in this series, but want to, you should totally drop what your doing and pick up the books! This is one modern day version of Beauty and the Beast you DON'T want to miss :)

Jolie Benoit left her old life behind to become an agent of the Underlight. Training under Sergeant Wesley Haukon, she’s honing her combat skills, all the while coping with the intense sexual attraction she feels for Hauk. She keeps their friendship casual, but when his high school sweetheart transfers into their division, Jolie finds herself grappling with jealousy.

The Underlight gave Hauk a purpose, but he can’t escape his past completely. The physical and emotional scars from the fire that killed seven fellow Army Rangers will mark him forever. Jolie sends his protective instincts into overdrive, but he’s convinced he’ll never be worthy of her love.

Hauk is determined to keep Jolie from harm. But when the Order of Ananke ambushes them with a new weapon that neutralizes Hauk, making him vulnerable, it’s Jolie who must tap into her hidden strengths to rescue him—or risk losing him forever…
