Title: Beneath Your Beauty
Author: Alexa Keith
Genre: Adult Erotica, Contemporary
Release Date: Octomber 20th, 2014
Rating: 3 stars.


I wish I could give this book 5 stars. It took me a month to finish it, I just wish it was a little more realistic. I couldn't really get into the characters much as I wanted. I loved the ending just I felt bored by it in the beginning and that made me put it down several times

"I received this book for free to read and review for Wicked Reads"

I rather liked the premise of this book when I read the blurb; but having read the story, it is even better than I imagined. Somehow the writer manages to include all the cliches one would expect, and turn them into something right. There was a moment when I thought it was going to be a train wreck, but it was a clever twist, and I was glad I held on for the finale. Overall this story included everything that any reader of hot, s

I have so much love for this book I don't even know where to begin! Alexa Keith has some amazing talent as a writer and I am so glad to have been able to read her first novel. The love story between Steele and Kayden is so incredibly beautiful, it pull at your heart strings. I love how Kayden knocks Steele on his ass (figuratively speaking) the moment he meets her. I also love how he doesn't take no for an answer with her and he keeps coming at her till she gives into him. He knows what he wants ...more

You never know what to expect from a new authors debut novel, but all I can say is I FLOVED this book! It has everything I like in a book, sex, angst, great storyline & great characters that just grab you from page 1!!! Steele is the kind of man you just want to sink your teeth into (seriously...sex on a stick with tattoos...grrr) & Kayden is down to earth and someone you could totally be friends with. My heart squeezed quite a few times during this book as I was pulled right into their ...more

I thought I'll just read a few chapters before bed, well four hours later and I'm finished. OMG I loved this story.

This was such an easy book to fall into. Right from chapter one I was hooked. Steele Waters was a great character he's is a porn star, sexy as sin, drop dead gorgeous. Kayden finds herself on set with Steele. She's cleaning up a mess her sister left behind and needs money fast. This is the only option she

Totally loved this book! Not only are all of the characters very well detailed but the chemistry between them is just off the walls!! Totally love love love Steele and the way he is regarding Kayden, the irony of how a sex god finds love in a small town girl, after being with who know how many women is just.. no words!
Totally recommend this book to everyone (including guys, they can learn something from this book!!), looking forward to any and all future books!!

hmm. I'm not a fan of cheating in books and although Kayden accepted his porn star role I just couldn't get my head aroubd it, being with other women and her. Also the whole necklace thing confused me. Why was he still searching for that girl when he supposedly found the one?! then the sister? too many factors turned me off unfortunately.

Thanks Wicked Reads for a free book to read and review.

I don't think I have ever read a book so unique with a storyline like this one. Kayden's a baker whose sister died of drug related stuff ten years ago. A dealer who her dead sister owed money to finds Kayden and demands she pay the ten thousand back. After scrimping and not making enough to pay the ten thousand, she searches the want ads only to find a part in a movie. A porn movie. After going through the scene with her co star Steele Wate

I loved this story from the writing style to the plot and the characters. For female lead Kayden, I enjoyed her alter ego and her real persona, irresistible Steele I just want to steal him lol and cuff his JR. okay, i'll keep my fantasies to myself. I can't wait for book 2 Inside Your Beauty, with hot mom Ali and tasty Hunter. I love that Kayden has nephews she raises as sons hope she has her own w/ Steele and that from upcoming book 2 Ali has 3. I also need more Chris Hard in the future.

I gave this book 2 stars because it was well presented and edited with only minor errors and typos. I do think the story suffered with some major plot and continuity issues. I also think the author threw about everything but the "kitchen sink" in this story. I know it's fiction but it wasn't plausible and the story very far-fetched. There were some extremely funny parts in the story and likable characters. I especially enjoyed her Aunt. I think there were some great ideas here they just needed s ...more

I had seen this book around on Facebook and the blurb was really intriguing, a baker and a porn star, yes please! I went into this book thinking it would be fun and sexy but it really turned out to be so much more than what I had ever expected. Don't get me wrong, there is plenty of steam! Steele is super sexy and these two together have amazing chemistry! But in addition to the great sex there is a really incredible story here that went in a direction that I never would have imagined!

This one was a little tough at first, did not like Steele and his big ego but he redeemed himself later on. I like it overall and was glad it ended the way it did. I will for sure read more of this authors work.
I was recommended this new author by Chelle Bliss and since I like her books, thought I would try, not sorry I did.

OMG!! This was intense! I was a little wary about how a story could work out between a normal, average person and a porn star, but once I started reading, I couldn't put it down! Kayden and Steele are perfect together! There was so much chemistry, warmth and love between the two, that I was rooting for them the entire time!

This is a romance novel with a new slant on the porn industry. Takea hot male lead, add an a desperate for cash woman and throw then together into the studio and see what happens. not quite what you might expect as a mutual, no a far stronger attraction quickly develops fron these usually unusual circumstances.
the story develops from there, the reason for her need for funds becomes clear and secret pasts are revealed. there are twists and turns too.

The writing was good, that's why I'm giving it 3 stars. I really hated the H almost the whole book. I hate cheaters, so that pretty much that. But I did like the epilogue and how it ended. I like a HEA and I got it. Some of the shit he did though, damn.

Hot damn I want to be a porn star . . .

Not really . . .

But for a moment I maybe thought about it a smidgeon.

So I've been waiting and waiting to read this book. I was lucky enough to get to read the first three chapters before it came out and it's stuck with me since then.

Beneath Your Beauty was a well written, hot, and a sexy debut Novel from Alexa Keith. The story was not only intriguing but the characters really draw you in and make you want to read more.

This book totally surprised me in such great way. This was the 1 book I read from Alexa Keith, and I will be looking forward to more books by her. This talented author can weave a story of a porn star and a sweet baker that raised her dead sister's sons all by herself. I enjoy when an author can give us a strong woman, but she has insecurities about her looks, and you can't help but fall in love with her. Kayden is a great character, at 29 she has sent her 20's raising 2 boy's that are great, an ...more

This book was phenomenal! I loved the originality of the plot and I loved watching things heat up with Kayden and Steele. It was beautiful to watch their love develop and watch them grow as a couple. Alexa Keith is an amazing author. It's hard to believe that this is her first book. I can't wait until there are more to get my hands on. If you like a sexy story with a unique twist, then this is the book for you!
