Rushing downstairs, I found Emerson in the kitchen.

“Hey,” I called, entering the room.

He turned greeting me, “Good morning.”

Intent to get it over as quick as possible, I stated, “We need to talk.”

His face turned wary as he revealed, “I heard y’all arguing last night. I think we should talk. This was a bad idea. I thought it would be good for y’all to be together, but…”

Stopping him, I said, “Wait. That’s not what I was talking about.” Sighing, I found I didn’t want to talk to him anymore and asked, “Where’s Hert?”

Emerson walked closer to me, saying, “He left. He didn’t say where he was going. Ren, if it’s not working out…”

I stopped him again, raising my voice a little this time, “Why do you keep saying that? Things are perfect. I wanted to talk to you because we decided not to wait anymore. We are going to get our marriage license today and make an appointment at the courthouse. I wanted to see if your parents could come in early. We have three days and I don’t want them to miss it.”

Appearing distressed, Emerson replied, “Why are you rushing?”

Defensive, I argued, “I’m not. I’m just tired of waiting. And just so you know whether you think it’s a good idea or not, that’s what we’re doing. I don’t know who you think you are. Plans and strategies didn’t make me love Hert. I fell in love of my own free will. Now will you call your parents and ask them to come in early or do I need to?”

Sounding miserable, Em stated, “You know that means I’m leaving sooner.”

Throwing my hands up, I shouted, “No one is making you! That’s your choice! You can still wait to leave!”

Emerson shouted back, “No, I can’t! I can’t stay here with you married to Hert!”

Sitting down at the table placing my head in my hands, I asked, “Why not?”

Opening his mouth, he paused before hanging his head, replying, “I didn’t know it would make me feel this way.”

Emerson’s reply seemed more like he was talking to himself than answering my question.

Slightly outraged, I snapped, “What way?”

Emerson, always selfless, determined to put everyone else’s needs before his own was picking now, three days before I was to be Hert’s wife, to be selfish.

“You know, Ren, I didn’t move to Spain with my parents because I needed to stay here with you. You and I, we were meant to be with each other. That is what was supposed to happen.”

Nothing more needed to be revealed. I couldn’t help being hurt. Hurt for Emerson and for myself.

I looked over at him, scolding, “And you pick right now to tell me this.”

Emotion seemed to weigh on him as he stated, “I won’t get a chance like this again, to tell. There are things you need to know.”

Livid, I replied, “No, you won’t, because in three days I’m marrying Hert but you had ten years of chances and never said a word.”

Emerson seemed regretful as he apologized, “I’m sorry.”

Trying to hold myself together, I said, “Please don’t do this to me. Not right now.”

Leaving the room, I heard him say, “I’ll call my father.”

And now the sexy ever after… Loving the Beast: A Beauty Epilogue

My Review *****

Sweet and Scorching!

Loving the Beast is a sweet and scorching epilogue to Erin and Blake’s romance, which began in Beauty Touched the Beast. The series recounts the relationship between war veteran Blake (the ‘Beast’ of the title), who is struggling to deal with the aftermath of war and the internal and external injuries he sustained and Erin (the ‘Beauty’), a college student who cleans his house to help fund her studies. Their journey is one of deep emotions and sensuality: they face many challenges as Erin progresses through college and Blake, empowered by her love, re-enters society.

I LOVED how in this final instalment both Erin and Blake are compelled to face their inner demons and open up more fully than ever before to one another in some soul-searching and erotic scenes. The love this couple have for each other just jumps off the page!

Engaged to be married, Blake and Erin visit first Blake’s parents and then Erin’s mother. However, secrets from the past come to the fore, revealing their insecurities and once again testing their love. Throughout, I loved how Erin and Blake were ultimately there for one another emotionally and physically, even though the revelations lead to their unravelling.

There are also some seriously HOT scenes in this book, as Erin and Blake in turn encourage each other to ‘let go.’ These scenes illustrate once again the creativity of Skye Warren and the raw beauty of her writing! Not as dark as some of the author’s novels, it nevertheless deals honestly and sensitively with the issue of PTSD and physical injuries sustained in combat, as well as issues around trust and overcoming insecurities.

Readers of erotic romance who love tortured heroes and strong and vulnerable heroines will adore this series and its epilogue as much as I did.
