"How Beauty Loved the Beast" [Tales of the Underlight Series, Book 3] by Jax Garren (aka Jennifer Hinson)
My Book Summary : Now that Hauk has been saved and back from his time healing in the hospital, Jolie and his relationship pick up and kick off even better then Hauk expected. Yet his biggest fear of exposing all of his wounds to anyone, especially Jolie, is about to be thrown down by any means necessary, even more so if he ever wants to make love to Jolie without a condom. Nevertheless, as their relationship ignites and blossoms into something wonderful the Order of Ananke steps up its own game with plans to take down Hauk, Jolie, and infiltrate the Underlight by using their own people against them. If only Hauk & Jolie can battle through it all long enough to stay together forever while keeping safe their friends and comrades...
My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars, two friends and "soul mates" fight the biggest battle of their lives in order to win each other's heart, as well as, to defeat their enemy. This was an epic ending to a delightfully fun series! I love how strong willed and determined Jolie throughout this novel! Also, I just could NOT get enough of Jolie & Hauk they are the perfect "Beauty & the Beast" couple!!
It will be interesting to see how Ms. Garren will expand on this series once she switches to Book 4 making Brayden the hero and Ashley (oh, how I hope Ms. Garren makes her likeable somehow) the heroine. I can't wait!
I recommend this novel and series to anyone who likes new twists on the Disney Classics, even if they are a bit erotic. =0)

Book Teaser(s) :
"You're not interrupting. I dropped my sunglasses and I'm trying to retrace my steps. But don't worry. I've been taking extra precautions." She gave a significant glance back at Hauk. "I hope you have, too. I imagine you'll have 'round-the-clock protection if you let a certain muscled beast with superpowers have his way."For more information on this book, series, and/or any other books by Jax, then please check out her website.
Jolie rolled her eyes. "Yeah, yeah. He's offered. Let's look for your sunglasses."
Catrina stopped her with a hand on her shoulder. Violet eyes---Jolie was surprised her boss had bothered with her contacts this morning---took her in resolutely. "I hope you take that offer. Don't be stubborn about this, Jolie. Not after Cassie." Her hand moved to Jolie's cheek, patting it lightly. "I don't mean to sound like your mother, but you are one of my girls."
Jolie squeezed her hand. "Don't worry. 'Please hop into bed with a felon for the next few weeks' is, shockingly, not one of the things my mother ever said to me."
Catrina cackled in surprise. ~ within Chapter 11
