A Beautiful Love Story

Ms. Byrd has done it, AGAIN! "The Beautiful Ones" is a brilliantly written sequel to "Unforgettable". I can't believe Solomon loved Ophelia for 25 years and she NEVER knew how he felt, talk about an unrequited love! Solomon learns of Ophelia's engagement to Jonas Hilton, another wonderful man, but is he the "Right Man"?!!!. As her lifelong friend, Solomon should be happy for her, but, how can he be happy when the ONLY woman he's ever loved is marrying another? Solomon wishe...more
Shh I'm reading!
Awwwww. What a pleasant surprise! The structure of this book reminded me of a movie or a TV show: a woman meets a man in an airport lounge and invites him to pour his heart out about the one who got away. A childhood crush, a perfect fiancee, and a beautiful woman. I wouldn't think that would work so well in print, but Ms. Byrd did a fantastic job developing a romance in flashback format. A breezy summer read and now I HAVE to look up the Hinton series and follow the brothers.

This was a beautiful love story, a page turner to say the least. I enjoyed the characters and loved reading a little about Marcel and Diana from the first book. I would recommend it...:-))

Loved how this story was told. The surprise for me was the end.

I truly enjoy this author's writing, however, this one fell a little short for me. It was an enjoyable and quick read, but it was also a predictable read.
I enjoyed the Ophelia and Solomon's story. I was happy that Solomon and Ophelia ended up together. Even though I felt bad for Jonas. I have always been a fan of true love. Their love was a true love story even though the had not always openly admitted it to each other. Everyone around them was aware of their love. I thought it was a sweet love story. I am a fan of Adrianne' storytelling's style. I love love all of her books!!!
This was a beautiful and most rewarding love story. Although I felt a little sorry for Jonas, I was still secretly rooting for Ophelia and Solomon to get together because their love was 25 years in the making and to me the made the better couple. Now in the next installment of the Unforgettable series, I hope that sassy Toni Wright and Jonas find true love...they both deserve and need it. Awesome read!!!!
I really enjoyed this book. It asked the basic question, do best friends make the best lovers. Jonas Hinton was a good man who believed himself to be in love with Mrs Right. Yet, I think deep down somewhere he knew that the relationship between Ophelia & Solomon was more than just friends. Their friendship ended up being love everlasting.
I went back for this August '12 it was 2 ☆..."Will they, won't they? By page 120, who cares! Just wanted to get to the end and call it done!"

Got to say now, I really liked this book on the second read!
I really liked this story. It was sweet and endearing and I found myself rooting for them to get together. I definitely enjoy Byrd's books and I look forward to the King's series.
I love this book Solomon was to die for Ophelia had to be crazy not to notice him Jonas wasn't all that to me he was to possessive for me!
