When Beauty Met the Beast by Khardine Gray
Even the dirt swept under the rugs of the rich and famous glistens with slime. Follow the saga of the Vandervilles as they prove that money, no matter how much, cannot buy love, trust, honesty, integrity or even safety. WHEN BEAUTY MET THE BEAST by Khardine Gray is pure soap opera all the way.
Witness one man come home to claim the woman he wants, not with kindness or honesty, but with an overbearing, he-man approach which she actually falls for. Wade Vanderville hit bottom long ago, ran away to heal and is back, determined to make Chloe Matthews his. But evil is lurking in the shadows as Wade’s family becomes a target for revenge as their dirty laundry is exposed, and their privacy is invaded in the most primal ways.
The webs have been woven and the spider awaits its prey… has the devil come to collect his due form a family who has built their empires on shaky ground?
Khardine Gray’s tale is filed with over-inflated egos, a sense of entitlement and the feeling that with enough money and power the Vandervilles are unsinkable, but for some, that is merely a façade for the public and someone is determined to bring this family to its knees. Will the sins of the father rain down on the son? Will the secrets of the mother betray the daughter? What of the new romance that is blooming? Can it survive?
Ms. Gray has created plastic people who hide their emotions deep, keep their lies close to the vest and find that being humbled and human can be very painful. I cannot say I truly liked every character. Chloe was weak when it came to life, but strong in her talents as a designer. Wade's entrance into this tale turned me completely off, if his transformation is real, he has serious promise! Tons of snippets of action, like a maze gone wild decorate these pages right up to the last page...just be careful not to fall of that cliff...
I received this copy from Khardine Gray in exchange for my honest review.
