Kurzbeschreibung

Ara Costas has it all—riches, power, and the kind of beauty that attracts all the right people. He’s flying high and loves his life, until a serious car accident leaves him horribly scarred. Ara becomes an angry recluse, hiding away in his Chicago high-rise apartment, running his multimillion-dollar business from behind a computer screen.

Ilias Adams is a quiet farm boy who keeps his nose buried in books. A great education and stellar resume land him a job as Ara's assistant and liaison to the board of directors. Little did he know when he signed up for this dream job that he’d end up working for the world's moodiest, most uptight boss.

Ilias is scared of Ara at times, but he recognizes the challenge he faces when he meets Ara and sees the reason for the man’s anger. Ara is guarded and suspicious, since he can’t believe anyone can bear to look at him. Despite all this, Ilias is determined to turn the beast into a beauty again, at least on the inside, and tear down the walls Ara has so carefully constructed around him.

HASH(0x8f80a21c) von 5 Sternen 3.5 stars - Beauty and the Beast retold m/m style 17. März 2014
Von Nikyta - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This review can be found at The Blogger Girls review site.

Ara Costas is not a nice person. Filled with arrogance and selfishness, he’s living the life of the rich and famous until he’s in a dangerous car accident that leaves him disfigured. Scarred and disgusted with himself, he became so reclusive he refused to leave his apartment for anything beyond more surgeries. That is until he hires Ilias as his assistant. Ilias brings out feelings in Ara that he never knew he had. After all, he’s a horrible, superficial person that doesn’t believe in love. Ilias sees something in Ara, though, that makes him want to pursue whatever it is between them but will Ara let Ilias get close? Or will he ruin anything between them before they even get started?

I will freely admit that Beauty and the Beast has always been my favorite fairy tale. This story is a shoo-in for that tale where Ilias is the beauty and Ara is the beast. In this case, Ilias is the perfect one while Ara is scarred and ashamed of his appearance, going so far as to hide in the shadows. Ilias is a sweet, caring person who just wants to help Ara and show him that there’s more to life than what others think and that even with his scars, Ara is still beautiful. Ara, however, is surly and rude. He keeps his distance from Ilias and does everything he can at first to put Ilias off. They are very sweet together once they get over their rocky start.

I had a few issues with this story, though. At first, it was hard for me to get into the book and I think that was because the merging of two distinct writing styles wasn’t a smooth transition. Although, once I got used to it, I was able to overlook that. Another issue I had was that Ara and Ilias’ dialogue at times was very awkward and I felt like there were a lot of repetitiveness to what they were saying, doing and thinking. Beyond that, and this isn’t really an issue, is that in the beginning, Ilias job description is for ‘CEO’ of Ara’s company and I couldn’t really understand that because he acted like an assistant and who would hire a CEO that young who has no experience? BUT looking at the blurb, I realize that Ilias IS an assistant so I think I might have missed that distinction in the text.

Nevertheless, I still liked the story. While I couldn’t get into it at first, once I put it aside for a little bit and got back to it is when I really got into the story. It’s sweet, light and fun at times. It also tells the classic fairy tale of Beauty and the Beast where Ilias, the Beauty, tries to save Ara, the Beast, from his own hatred and make him realize he’s still beautiful, scars and all. For those who like a very sweet romance about loving yourself and accepting love, you’ll like this one as well :)

Ara is scarred after an accident, he used to be the belle of the ball and Prince Grouchy all rolled into one. Now he is just a reclusive grouchy beast who, for seven years, has been locked away in his luxurious apartment with staff running his empire. The rule for his assistant is no staring and no superfluous interaction and just focus on work. Others were caught staring so they were ejected from the ivory tower to the gutters below. In comes Ilias who desperately needs the job so will do all he can to stay.
Except he doesn't: he stares, he tries to make friends, he remonstrates Ara, he has little tanties and he does everything to get himself fired. Ara doesn't fire him though...he falls in lust and then love.
Hang on though, for seven years Ara has sat in shadows, not allowing anyone to look upon him and suddenly he is letting this young man break all the rules and Ara miraculously lets down the castle walls into his heart. Nuh uh, don't think so. Honest to goodness this was a long, slow, tortuous read of epic proportions. I was ready to delete it from my Kindle at 25%, but just kept sludging along trying to get through this book. There were some nice bits sure but on the whole talk about artistic licence. I don't think either character is that likable, the poor housekeeper is being worked to death as well (just thought I would point out she worked every day from at least 6 in the morning to late meals, poor woman) and quite frankly Ilias is like a child if he is rebuffed. I felt depressed reading this and only finished it because my curiosity on how it ended made me. I need a cup of tea and a lie down after that epic yawn - felt too much like hard work getting through that! Oh and just to add my last wee peeve - the names Ara and Ilias are just too contrived for words - one is ok, but both having weird names is overkill.

To me this was several stories at once. The country boy meets the city boy. Rich boy meets poor. Ex Beauty/beast meets beauty. Ara journey was a tough one but exactly what he needed to find true happiness. Ilias is a gem, he loves Ara with his whole being even though he has been hurt. The romance is everywhere from the setting, who doesn't want to live in a mansion in Chicago and have a sweet housekeeper who brings you finger foods whilst you are in bed, to a ranch in the country. Real life challenges are addressed yet true love wins in the end. Thank you Allison for another fabulous tale.

Technical stuff out of the way first. I was gifted a copy of this book with no demands from the author for a review.

Now on to the good stuff. This was a sweet take on an oft told tale. I don't think anyone liked Ara at the beginning, but one of the many things I loved about this book was the EVOLUTION of the character. Ara was truly a character that I wanted to hate. But with each page turned, I grew to like him more and more. I loved Ilias, seriously, fell head over heels for this one. Smart, kind, adorable and oh so compassionate.

I love books that give you a front row seat. This one pulled me in, plunked me down and got me immersed right away. An excellent story, with just enough detail to give me an over all look, the sites, sounds, smells...all there in my mind. That bathtub scene??? Yeah...I was in the opposite end of the tub like voyeur, hidden in my mound of bubbles. These two authors did a bang up job of character development. They showed the fear, the obsessive fear that Ara had. But it was calmed by the most of the time rational, Ilias. This story really showed that fear can be conquered by love, and really, isn't that what it is all about? Love conquers all...even the most closely held, darkest memories fall before that mighty emotion.

I read one review for this book, the one star, where they person complained that the guys were not guy like enough. I have been blessed with knowing a few same sex couples, and there really wasn't much off on this. Go into this with realistic expectations. This is NOT a blatant sexual romp that shows an unrealistic relationship. The relationship happens slowly and is tastefully done. There is nothing explicit, no in your face monster penises no over the top love scenes. This is sweet, subtle and divine. A round of applause for the two authors on a book well written.
