Nancy Holder brings us more beast action and a steamy romance. 

Vincent Keller (the beast) is approached by the family of a fellow soldier who went missing in Afghanistan, he vows to help them uncover the truth behind her disappearance. 

Detective Catherine Chandler (Beauty) is on the case of 7 horrific murders and her only witness is a young girl who's so traumatized she cannot speak. They come together and help each other find Justice. 


In the first book, the chemistry between Vincent and Catherine specifically was very dry. Which to be honest ruin the first book. This book was no different but it was a definite Improvement it was not as bad as the first book. I wish the author would have gone into more detail about how the characters felt during certain scenes. A couple of the character's storylines were changed in the book from the TV show. 

So if you're an avid watcher of the show you're going to be thrown for a loop. Not a big one but still. At the end of book 2, there are some things that could transfer over to book 3 when it comes to a storyline. But considering how the author seems to be writing I highly doubt it. But who knows!

On a good note, there were more emotional romantic moments between Catherine and Vincent. To be honest, if there weren't these moments in this book it wouldn't have been as good. The plot in book 2 is way more engaging! For the most part, I really could not put the book down. 

It really kept me on the edge of my seat. I truly enjoyed the character of Heather, Katherine's baby sister. The author made her way more bubbly than she is on the show. Which I didn't think was possible. I like that she makes friends with a very unlikely character. But it's so like Heather to have people gravitate to her with her bubbling nature.

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. Mainly because the book is actually pretty good. The storyline is linear it's not all over the place. The characters are better written and they're a little bit more true to their TV show characters. So it's not as jarring as the first book. The second book made me excited for the third and final book in the series.

I recommend this book for anybody who's a die-hard fan of the show Beauty and the Beast. Or anyone who enjoys science fiction, romance, and crime novels.
