REVIEW : Taming the Beast (Tales from St. Giles #1) by Andrew Grey
The suspicious death of Dante Bartholomew’s wife changed him, especially in the eyes of the residents of St. Giles. They no longer see a successful businessman… only a monster they believe was involved. Dante’s horrific reputation eclipses the truth to the point that he sees no choice but to isolate himself and his heart.
The plan backfires when he meets counselor Beau Clarity and the children he works with. Beau and the kids see beyond the beastly reputation to the beautiful soul inside Dante, and Dante’s cold heart begins to thaw as they slip past his defenses. The warmth and hope Beau brings to Dante’s life help him see his entire existence—his trials and sorrows—in a brighter light.
But Dante’s secrets could rip happiness from their grasp… especially since someone isn’t above hurting those Dante has grown to love in order to bring him down.

Taming the Beast by Andrew Grey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
How did I missed writing this book's review, I have no idea.
Now I need to gather my (short) memory again, glad I'm finally read the second book, and remembered that I liked Dante and Beau's story.
I mean, Beau is so adorable and even 'the St.Giles beast' couldn't stand his charm and falling hard for him. Now, we know who rules the Bartholomew's household, huh?
This is a modern telling of one of my favorite fairy tales, Beauty and the Beast, and it was nice to revisit the story, but with more M in it.
I think Andrew Grey is good with this kind of story, since fairy tales need a hand of author who can write some sweet dreamy stories.
I enjoyed it, and if you're a lover of a fairy tales, you'll find this one interesting.
