Release Blitz & REVIEW***The Beauty Beneath by DC Renee***


Ugly. Freak. Fatty.  I had been called those things and more for as long as I could remember.  I didn’t mind it, though, because to the outside world, those words described me perfectly.  But it was all a charade, a façade to keep people away.  Never let anyone get too close.  It had worked for twelve years of my life, ever since I caused my father’s death.

And then Carter Anderson pushed his way into my world.  Gorgeous, of course, charming, naturally, and cocky, a given—he called himself my friend and broke through every one of my carefully constructed walls.

Cue the “happily ever after,” right?  Wrong.

This isn’t some fairy tale where the ugly duckling turns into a beautiful swan, and once the beauty beneath is revealed, all is right in the world.  This is real life.  When things seem too good to be true, it’s because they usually are.  And when people say your past will come back to bite you, they mean it.  And trust me, it does.

(3.5 stars)
When a person feels guilt to the point where they feel they never deserve happiness again, they will go to extreme measures to ensure that. Like becoming pretty much a recluse, and having no friends, limiting contact with the outside world. This is what Emerson has done to herself, only leaving for work, having no friends to confide in, feeling as if she doesn't deserve to have fun ever again.... that's a lot of guilt for one person so young to have.

Meeting Emerson on a bet, Carter makes a deal with Emerson. What Carter doesn't expect is that they both will be drawn to the other.. even though Emerson is not what he would be normally attracted to.  Will Emerson let her guilt go? 

The first half of this book was really good... the last half was missing something for me. I'm not sure what I was expecting the last half to have, I just felt that it didn't work, of course on top of everything else happening, Carter has a secret; and for a book that had a man whore in it.... there was no sexy time? All in all it was an ok read and I'll give it a 3.5.

DC Renee has been writing all her life, from cheesy poems in elementary school (i'll share an example just so you know how cheesy: Flowers are my favorite thing; they usually bloom during spring. Pink, blue, yellow and green, so many colors that I have seen...etc.) to short stories and monologues, and eventually fan fictions for Days of Our Lives.

It was thanks to that superbly encouraging fan fiction community that DC found the courage to publish her first book - Let Me Go. It held fast in the top 100 Best Selling Contemporary Romance Fiction Novels on Amazon for over a month, going as low as the top 20's. Naturally, she loves to read, but she also likes watching hockey, dancing for fun, and loves her family.
