Revenge is a dish definitely best served cold…

Beneath the luxurious lifestyle and glamour of fame and fortune held by the Vandervilles, lies a dangerous web of secrets and a twisted tale of passion, and suspense.

With wealth, power, and beauty in abundance their dominant name prevails.

But trouble is about to come their way and throw their lives into turmoil.

One man consumed with the quest for revenge seeks to ruin their lives and destroy them one by one.

Witness the brilliantly vindictive plan to bring down Benjamin Vanderville, the deceitful precarious States Attorney of California and his wife Regina, reigning queen of the fashion world.

Fall in love with the warmth of romance that blossoms between Wade Vanderville and Chloe Matthews.

And walk the road of betrayal as Taylor Vanderville discovers where loyalties lie.

The riveting tale of When Beauty met the Beast will grip you and captivate you right from the start…


Do you like soap operas? Something along the lines of Young and the Restless or Days of Our Lives. If so you will like this book… maybe.

For me this book seemed like a hassle to get through. It wasn’t my cup of tea. So drama llama.

This book doesn’t just focus on the h or H, instead it follows multiply people. List of P.O.V.s are Chloe, Wade, Regina, Taylor, and the Observer. Regina is Benjamin Vanderville’s wife. Wade and Taylor their children, while Chloe is Taylor’s best friend and Wade’s love interest. There is only one chapter of the Observer and it could be a gazillion different people. That is the one thing I like about this story. I have no clue who is wanting to destroy the Vandervilles. There are too many suspects.

Chloe and Wade’s relationship made me want to scream. Chloe is wrapped up in Wade and Wade is obsessed with Chloe. Blah. There wasn’t much substance.

Now I will read the second book due to the fact this book ended with a cliffhanger that I want to find out what happens. What can I say, it’s that juicy kind of drama. But I have some other books that I must read before I can get to the second book. Putting this series on hold till further notice.
