Skylar Woods unknowingly drew Wyatt Smith toward her. He wanted…needed to learn everything about her. Though he sensed her beauty was more than just skin deep, Wyatt struggled to understand the sadness she attempted to make with an amazing smile.
When Skylar’s eyes met Wyatt’s for the first time, her breath caught and she couldn’t look away from the new guy standing in the school office smiling at her. The connection only get when Wyatt sat next to her in English class, allowing Skylar to dare to believe he might actually be interested in getting to know her.
For the first time in months, she felt alive.
The moment Wyatt expressed an interest, the notes started again…the ones that reminded her of a past she could never move beyond—the event that changed her life forever and robber her of any change of happiness.
Never believing the rumors being spread around school about Skylar, Wyatt made sure he went out of his way to prove how much he cared about her.
But when the past resurfaces, will Wyatt stand by her side? Or will he turn against her like everyone else?
Reading a new author is always both exciting and terrifying. It either goes super bad or really great. Ella Bordeaux and her book Beautiful created one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had with a book. Ever.
Skylar’s life as been difficult ever since she went out one night to the movies with a friend and things went terribly wrong. Now everyone talks behind Skylar’s back and she only has two friends- and one’s her brother. When Wyatt comes to the school everything changes. He knows her secret and still all he wants is her. The whole school and town seem against them being together, but Wyatt stops at nothing to keep them together.
Skylar has had a hard time at things since her incident. All she wants is to pick up the pieces and get out of her small town as soon as possible. She does become insecure at times, but it’s understandable why.
Wyatt is amazing. He’s so patient and caring towards Skylar even when things become more and more difficult. He’s the sweetest and swoon worthiest guy ever. I love how he doesn’t take crap from anyone who takes smack about Skylar and always does everything he can to be thoughtful to her. Seriously if you don’t think Wyatt is book boyfriend material I don’t know who is.
Based off the cover I had thought this would be a story of interracial love, sadly that was not the case. I’m not greatly upset I just wish the book cover has been more accurate to the actual book.
Beautiful was beyond amazing. I loved every second of this book and couldn’t put it down. I read it in one sitting. If you like romance, realistic fiction, and a story that will leave you breathless this is the book for you.
This story ended on such a cliffhanger I honest to goodness NEED not want, NEED to know what happens next. This whole story was so glorious I’m seriously in love. Ella Bordeaux is now on my favorite’s list. This book is a must read that you simply MUST add to your tbr pile.
