Beauty and the Billionaire Beast by Maria Hoagland {Review}

Beauty and the Billionaire Beast by Maria Hoagland
Kindle Edition, 180 pages
Published April 28th 2017 by Gelato Publishing LLC
Landscape architect Emma Treager is searching for answers to a family mystery. She stumbles across an important clue at the run-down Indio Pointe Plantation where mystery floats through the air like the ghosts of the former owners. She can’t pass up the job that property owner Theo Lambert offers like an enchanted rose, despite his reputation of being a beast of a boss. As the two of them delve into the secrets of the past, Theo and Emma discover that finding clues is almost as much fun as finding each other.

This contemporary retelling of Beauty & the Beast with a touch of Romeo & Juliet is the next sweet romance in the Destination Billionaire series.  
My Review: 4 Stars
I love a good fairy tale retelling, especially when it's a sweet contemporary romance. This version takes the reader on an adventure to an interesting setting--Louisiana. There's a mystery waiting to be discovered, with secrets that bring Emma and Theo together. 
I really liked the subtle ways that aligned this book with the original story. The rose seems to be at the heart of things and Emma is a landscape architect who really knows her stuff. Theo is a normal man--not some paranormal creature, but the important parallels are still present. This location always seems to be secretive and magical, which is a perfect setting for this story.
I love a sweet romance, the solid characters, and the mystery element, which is a lot of fun, making this a very enjoyable take on a favorite classic.
Content: mild romance
