First of all let me just say that I LOVE this title!! It has such a beautiful meaning to it. Going into this book, I knew instantly I was going to fall for Grayson. Mr. Popular "player" to the world, but such a good guy with a heart of gold on the inside.
This is a story of love at first sight.....
Huntley and Grayson meet when Huntley moves to live with her aunt and uncle after losing both of her parents. Needless to say Grayson is instantly smitten with Huntley.
But after everything Huntley has been through she is not so easily convinced and the two try to stay away from one another.
Both have secrets they hide deep inside. And both are afraid once those secrets are revealed that the other will run.
But what ensues, is a sweet drama filled love story of two broken people.
There is so much more to this story but I don't want to give too much away! Oh ok, what the heck, maybe just a little more! ;)
Once Huntley's past catches up with her is when the real drama starts. I kept thinking to myself...how much more can this poor girl take?!
Then there was the story of their best friends Demi and Brody. Oooo lala!! Talk about more angsty loving drama! I will be honest and say, that I loved their story as much as I did Huntley and Grayson's.
And the ending....oh the ending!!!
Let me just put a WARNING TO READER in here. If.....you hate to ugly cry at happy endings. Do not read the end! Because it is one BIG, happy, crying ugly tears kind of ending! It was GREAT!!
And THAT is why Beneath Your Beautiful by Tamsyn Bester gets 5 "Crazie" good stars from this reviewer! <3
