With Beauty in Winter I liked the story to start with, but when I got to the middle it just went downhill from there. Everything was so rushed and little key details were left out that the authors kept throwing out in the story.
For instance, what is so significant about the rose ring? Both Reid and Fiona were so determined to get the ring, but what's the significance of it? Fiona wanted it because her grandfather gave it to her grandmother...but what about Reid's reason?
I gave the book three stars because it is well written, as is usual for the Alexa Riley team, but took off two because I was just so disappointed with how little ended up in this story. I've read every story of theirs, as far as I know, and this one felt like the shortest story with the least effort that they have ever produced, which left me disappointed in the end. There is a teaser for another book at the end, Riding Red, which is a good story and is longer, but that excerpt takes up a third of this book and is not included in full.
Fiona has just lost her last living family member and she doesn't know what she'll do next. She agrees, via her grandparents estate lawyer, to become live-in help for a friend of his. Little does she know what she's really signing on for!
Reid Gold was cursed into a half-turned wolf-human state after the death of his family. He's alpha, but he can't lead because he can't shift. But, when Fiona comes to his door, he recognizes his mate, and everything changes.
Fiona and Reid had an insta-lust and insta-love connection. Fated mates, and all that, you know. I usually enjoy that type of thing, so that was fine for me. I just wish we'd gotten a little more backstory on the rose ring, and how that connected them together. Sexy times were delicious AR fun, as always. Overall, a fun, quick read. I just wish it had been longer! As always, I'm looking forward to what's next from these awesome ladies!

Beauty In Winter by Alexa Riley is the fourth book under the Beauty Series. Finally, I've read all four and I loved this book! It's another beautiful version of Beauty and the Beast, but this time hotter, with an alpha male wolf shifter who is obsessed with his mate. This book was truly fantastic!
Fiona and Reid.......
What an adorable story this was! Once again we are gifted with a short, sexy, erotic tale featuring a sweet innocent heroine and an over-the-top possessive, alpha hero.
As good as the story was, it had the potential to be awesome if only it were longer. I loved the trope of beauty meets beast. And the premise of this story had an additional twist of paranormal. Who doesn't love a sexy, alpha wolf shifter?
If you read the blurb, which I assume you have, you already know that Reid is cursed. What you don't know is that he has isolated himself away from his pack. Only when the curse is broken can Reid take his rightful place and lead his pack. This is what he believes.
Fiona is the key to Reid's happiness. In all the ways that matter she was made for him. Since this book is so short, only 60 pages, I won't say anything more. I wouldn't want to spoil the story for you.
I will say, however, that I really liked it. Yes it was classic AR style with an over-the-top hero. Yes it was cheesy but those are just some of the aspects I love in AR books the most.
Beauty In Winter is book four in this multi-author series inspired by the story of "Beauty and the Beast." I hope to read the other books in this series as well.
This is my honest and unbiased opinion.
