Something Beautiful is a love story about two people from different walks of life. There is something sizzling about the hero that would draw any woman with breath in her lungs. At the same time, there is danger and a sense of doom on the horizon because of the undercover nature of his job and the criminal element. I liked how Lauren wanted to have Antony around to make her feel safe, but I had a hard time with believing that they'd only rest in each other's arms. Then again, their restraint was admirable, especially for their age and their situation. Maybe that was one of the things that drew Antony to her. The fact that he couldn't have her made him want her more. Anyway, I listened to most of the book on my kindle while I was driving, and hearing it made it harder to connect with the characters. But I read the last 20%, and it had a good ending. I liked how everything turned around at the conclusion of the novel. This is a classic K. Dawn Byrd wrap up. I wouldn't expect anything less.
