Oh my....where do I even start with this review??!! First, let me just say that my dark-loving heart was TOTALLY and COMPLETELY undone after reading this COMPELLING, UTTERLY DARK and TWISTED tale. I felt like my stomach and my heart were both in my throat a good portion of the time while reading, yet I simply couldn't put it down! You know that feeling of looking at a terrible car crash where you WANT to look away, but you're riveted to it and you just can't? That's the feeling I had while readi ...more

I thought it could be a little longer.
Great read though and hope the last 2 in this series will be just as good

"We are the same side of the same mad coin, you and I."

Dallas will drop you in at the deep end with this dark, disturbing, and very twisted tale. A story that will pack a punch. I won't be the last reader to want to look away, but your eyes will stay glued to the pages. Dallas will leave you reeling and quite disturbingly wanting more.
Don't forget to take a deep breath before you jump because you won't be coming up for air for a while.

Beauty delivers an entertaining punch of darkness, angst and blind faith. Kirsty Dallas, the author has proven she is a connoisseur of all things dark with a small ray of light filtering in. This author has unique talent to draw her readers in with a slew of deliciously dark and deprived elements that are a must for a novella to standout within the walls of Blaire's World.

"Beauty" is a well written, fast paced,
whirlwind of emotions MUST READ. This captivating story of a strong heroine and her

This was a hard review for me to write because this book left me with a hardcore book hangover!
Dallas really knows how to suck the reader in and keep them there, I couldn't put this books down! She has a way with words that makes her stories come to life in the most delicious way!
It's a dark and twisted read, but one that had me fist pumping the air with satisfaction by the end.

Do not miss out on this, it's a book you won't forget easily.

Excellent! gripping! Intense! What more can I say. Is there ever more pleasure than to see the evil, depraved monsters get what they deserve and the victim her revenge. Loved this. Make sure that you read this and don't miss out on a brilliant book.

Beauty by Kirsty Dallas is another book in the Blaire World spin off. This book is fucking amazing!! It will blow the reader away with the look into who Beauty is and what she endured at the hands of the sadistic men who abused and raped her. Add in Hart to the mix and you have a story that has chemistry, angst, and so much more! I am looking forward to the second book in the Beauty series to find out more about who Beauty was before and what becomes of her and Hart....will she finally get her u ...more

Enthralling. Gripping. Twisted. It’s been way too long since I danced in the darkest so sublimely, but BEAUTY made sure she took me along for one hell of a ride.

Seriously this girl is a sight to behold, even in her broken, abused state she is magnificently strong, breathtakingly courageous & so fiercely driven. She is everything I long for in a damaged heroine & more. She is someone who commands your undivided attention on every single page, she is someone who demands you listen to her s

I'm a lover of all things dark. And for me the darker the better. It's a genre that I found myself craving after years of reading and it was unexpected. The thirst for darkness for me is intoxicating and yes probably a little crazy, but hey we all have our favs and dark is mine.

When Beauty landed, I knew that I was going to get dark, and a whole lot of it. But I honestly never expected the darkness and the sheer brutal cruelty that came with it.
Never did I expect to get totally drawn to the dep

4.5 Stars ~ Jess

This is not my first book by this author but this a FAR cry from the last book I read by her. The last one I read was sweet and funny. This was dark and brutally delicious.

Beauty, the name she now goes by has been held captive for three years. One of the only things keeping her going is her thirst for blood. She yearns to destroy those who harmed her if she could only get free.

Then comes Hart. He is dangerous and damaged and there to collect Beauty's tormentor. But he sees somet

This dark story pulled me in from the start and the fast pace kept me hooked till the final page. I devoured Beauty in one sitting and I can't wait to see how the journey ends.

This book has some seriously confronting scenes. The detail in which Kirsty Dallas outlines events at times made me react physically; my stomach clenched and my heart raced for the horrible things our lead had to endure. I never felt that the violence was used as a shock factor, each memory or event has a purpose

Beauty is everything I was expecting from a book in Blaire's World. Kirsty Dallas more than delivered a gripping, dark tale of abuse, revenge and two monsters finding those missing puzzle pieces.

Beauty is something extra special hidden behind the blood, bruises and broken down doll.

Hart is on a mission - go in kill, collect, deliver, he never planned on Beauty and see's something in her that calls to his own broken soul.

Revenge has never been more beautiful, this book is dark, bruta

Geez Louise!! Kirsty Dallas has sure packed one huge punch with this 1st instalment of Beauty and Harts story.
This book is dark and raw. It takes you to a place you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy where this woman suffers your worst nightmare. But they say revenge is sweet and there is a scene in this book that although gory and bloody, had me cheering her on and if I am honest, feeling very proud of this fictional character that I became invested in on page 1!

I started 2019 with an ARC of this book and let me tell you I don't regret signing up for the arc. This book is a must read. You definitely need to have this baby in your library. From the very first page till the end this book takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride full of emotions. From having mixed feelings about the characters till curiosity to know more, this book contains all the elements to grab the attention of the reader.

Um like wow! Whatever I thought this book was going to be like it wasn't, but so much better. Kristy Dallas a new to me author blazed it out of the ballpark with this one.

Dark just doesn't cover it but its a start, they say there's beauty in darkness, twisted yet sane. There is truly evil in darkness that if you allow it will swallow you hold. But a broken doll isn't quite as broken her inner strength keeps her alive and the need to live.

Oh my word, this is deliciously DARK. It so nicely spoke to that black space in my the depths of my soul.

This is the introduction to Beauty and Hart's story, which will be continued later in the year, and what a fantastic introduction it was. Why have I never heard how fantastic an author of dark depravity, Kirsty Dallas is. Now I need to go and track down every twisted, evil and corrupted book she has written and buy them immediately.

What a book😱 this story sucked me in from page 1 to the end and I absolutely couldn't get enough of this story.
This is my first book to read by a new arthur and damn what a story. Imagine being stolen, beaten so many vile things done to you and your only wish is to get revenge on those who are inflicting the pain on you.
For 3 years Beauty has hoped and prayed but nobody has listened for her to be rescued until the day she meets Hart as he and his guy's rescue her he takes one look at her knows

This is another of the Blaire's World books. You don't have to read the others to understand this one, but why wouldn't you?

This was an amazingly, beautifully disturbed book. Beauty and Hart are definitely a force of nature and not one of the good ones, you know?

Beauty was taken away from her life by an evil man, and has been stuck with him for the past 3 years. Hart is there to deal with that same man, because his boss wants to deal with that man.

I loved being back in Blaire's World. I loved the connection Hart had with Charlie Decena. I would love to know more of their past story together. Oh and I absolutely loved Beauty and Hart's undeniable attraction to one another.

Hart made Beauty feel. He made her feed the monster inside her. Hart didn't want her to shy away from her madness. He wanted to Beauty to understand her monster and unleash it.

Magnetically enticing. This is the best way to describe this amazing part of BLAIRE’S world. From the moment I started this book it dragged me down into the depths of the underworld once more. The female role in this book is perfectly balanced between crazy and beautiful. Her connection to the main male character is beyond what I was expecting! It took me almost to the end of the book to realize how this story was connect to Blair’s world that’s how memorizing it was. This book was a dare I say ...more

OMG, what a book! Be prepared it is extremely dark, but kept my attention from page 1. It's fast paced, and drew me in from the beginning. I couldn't put the book down as I had no idea how the author was going to end this story. Beauty was kidnapped and has been brutally tortured and sexually abused by two deviant men. The emotions are so strong through out the entire book. If you like this sort of book, then I highly recommend you read it. The author did an exc

Beauty is part of the Blair's World Spin-off Series from the original books by Anita Gray. I loved the first two books by Anita Gray, so I've been looking forward to reading Beauty, and the other spin off books, for a while. It was totally worth the wait! This story weaves into the original book so well, but has it's own storyline and original characters. The victim turned heroine is unlike any other I've read about. Loved this book!

I was extremely lucky to receive an ARC copy through an online competition and proceeded to devour Beauty in about a day. From the very first words, I was captivated and couldnt put it down. Far from her previous works, Kirsty has nailed her dark side with perfection. Beauty will take you on a roller coaster of emotions from anguish at everything she goes through to triumph when she lets her monster free. I am left wanting more, Beauty's story is far from over!!!!!!

If you like dark intense books this one is for you. It was twisted, tragic, and haunting as beauty takes her journey to freedom and vengeance with the help of her rescuer. She locked her memories away as she dealt with the horrors of having been stolen and used as a sex slave. Watching her learn to trust her rescuer and find her vengeance made for an exciting read. I can't wait to read the next book!!
