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

Hey you...reader...yes, I’m talking to you. If you don’t know what BLAIRE’S WORLD is or who I am, then let me introduce myself. My name is Blaire-Markov. I’m a seasoned hacker and combatant who has been subjected to it all: human trafficking, brutal conditioning, and the most depraved forms of sexual abuse. I’ve lived, loved and lost, but do you know what? I’m sti

"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.

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

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.

Love it! Fascinating and hardcore story about Beauty, the men who abuse her and her reaction when rescued. Must read for anyone who doesn’t mind anything hardcore. Can’t wait for the next 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

Wow. Beauty was stolen at the age of 13 and what a life she had and it was not good. In steps Hart and changes start. Now looking forward to part 2. So far a great series.

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 story wit

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

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 loved it. A perfect addition to Blair’s world.

It’s not the darkness per se that lures me in and entices me, but the rise from the darkness, the rebirth, the empowerment and the awakening of a kind.
Dnf at 60%. Just couldn’t get into it. I love the dark stuff, but found this rather boring. Maybe I’ll pick it back up at some point.

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.
Once again Kristy has nailed it with this beautiful masterpiece♡

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.

Sep 28, 2019 rated it it was ok
I would call this a chapter not a book (the story lasts 48 hours). The connection between the leads is very superficial, I wasn't convinced. She's apparently traumatised and he basically loves her on finding her (no real details on why except she's pretty and blood thirsty) and it's not clear how they've formed any bond beyond a shared history of abuse and even that isn't really something they've connected on. It ends pretty abruptly when no story has actually formed. Really lacking the depth an ...more

What an emotionally raw story about a woman who forgot who she was because of her abduction and the mental and sexual abuse she endured.
Will she survive and be able to reap her revenge on those who wronged her?

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
