By the Book: A Meant to be Novel by Jasmine Guillory
Author: Jasmine Guillory
No. of Pages: Romance, Women's Fiction
Date of Publication: 3 May, 2022
My Rating: 1.5 Stars
I probably wasn’t the right reader for this even though I ordinarily really enjoy Guillory’s novels, and fairy tale retellings.
The Beauty and the Beast aspect was weirdly set up, they seemed more like a post-writing addition. The romance between Beau and Izzy never gelled for me - there wasn’t visible chemistry between the two, and the heat factor is nil.
Although this is marketed toward adults, I would have no issue allowing a middle-schooler to read this. I'm sure the right reader will adore this second title in the Meant to be series.
