Gotta Read!! The Vixen and The Vet by Katy Regnery
Phenomenal! Katy Regnery, I have never fallen so completely in love with a book so fast in my life! So many ooh's and ahh's as I was reading along, I lost count!! I'm officially raving about a book!! Raving!! Seriously, this story is astounding!
Oh Katy, where have your amazing books been all my life?! The Vixen And The Vet is thee most enchanting, modern day fairytale based romance that I've ever read, and the perfect Beauty and the Beast based contemporary erotic romance ... I'm awestruck!
Savannah and Asher are the most engaging characters, depicting the essence of Belle and Beast to perfection, and all the other wonderful details that mirror the original fairytale, like a Mrs Potts, are so endearingly magical!
As I love to say, I still love fairytales but they are just a little dirtier now ... and this erotic modern fairytale is now an obsession I'll read over and over ... Asher had me at library!!
I adore how the chapters and story follow an article about "The twelve most important milestones in any relationship" being read to Savannah by her soon to be married younger sister. Savannah Carmichael is smart, beautiful, caring and really career driven, but so hurt, wary and desperate to regain her life and dignity back. I love how all the twelve points start to ring true in her head as soon as she meets Asher ... it's so sigh-inducing romantic!
Meeting Asher felt promising and special, and while Savannah really did need his story for her piece, she sort of wanted his friendship too.
“Friends could just be the opening bid,” she whispered, feeling the heat rush into her cheeks. It felt forward to say the words, but she didn’t want him to think she’d sidelined him because of his looks. Damn, but she wasn’t good at this stuff.
“Sorry?” he asked in that superior, aloof voice he must have perfected at U.Va.
“I’m not calling at friends.”
He turned to her slightly. “Are you speaking in poker metaphors, or am I going crazy?”- Savanna & Asher
The disfigured hermit on the hill in a mansion, all alone and hating his small town's ignorant treatment ...
Asher Lee is a broken, scarred War veteran, wounded inside and out, brave and strong but so vulnerable and lonely. Until the day a knock on his door and a beautiful girl holding brownies asks to interview him ...
“Am I meant to raise?” he teased.
“Just don’t fold,” she said, smiling now, realizing how much she liked being with him, despite how he looked, despite the fact that he’d barely been out of his house in eight years. She liked him. He looked confused and bemused and a little delighted as he placed his cup back on its saucer, then turned slightly to catch her eyes.
“I wouldn’t dream of it.”- Asher & Savannah
Two kind, gorgeous people, hiding from the world to heal from all their pain ... and to find tender understanding and unconditional love in each other's arms. A true love match ...
Be still my melting heart!!
“This is me,” she said as he got closer, holding her hands loosely by her sides as he took in her ratty ensemble.
“I like you,” he said, “just the way you are.” She scoffed.
“Cutoffs and a stained black T-shirt with my hair in a messy bun.”
“Works for me.”
“I don’t know your sister, but she can keep her sundresses if they’re not your style.”
“I look like hell.” He stood before her, angling his body away so that the burned side of his face still faced the stairs and his good eye swept up and down her form slowly, lazily, almost ... erotically.
“If this is hell, I need to review my definition of heaven. I’ve clearly been lowballing paradise.” - Asher Lee
I can not recommend this book highly enough!! Beyond Brilliant!!
