This is the third installment in the Beauty serial by Skye Warren. In the previous installment Beneath the Beauty, it looked like there was trouble ahead for Erin and Blake. In Broken Beauty trouble has arrived and someone knows of their secret relationship. Now Blake’s career and Erin’s degree could be in jeopardy.
Erin and Blake continue to grow closer emotionally and Skye Warren has a lovely way of creating very erotic sex scenes that are filled with emotional depth. For me that is the strong point in this serial. I’m enjoying this emotional and deeply sensual journey with Blake and Erin, but the external conflict that threatens them is a bit predictable. I prefer the story as it focuses on the deepening romantic relationship and Blake’s emotional recovery and reemergence into society after his debilitating accident.
I found myself struggling with this installment of the serial, wanting more plot progress and not wanting to wait until next month for the conclusion. I think I just wanted a little more to sink my teeth into as far as the progression of the story this time. The final installment is due out next month and I’m fairly certain I can see where things are going, but I look forward to Erin and Blake’s resolution and happy ever after ending as at this point I’m more invested in the relationship aspect than I am in the suspense conflict.
