Life Altering Beautiful  
By T.A. Hardenbrook

*Disclaimer* This book is intended for 18+

Keeping secrets is easy; not falling in love is the hard part. Running away from her past Seven was bound and determined to make a new life. She moved halfway across the country to a school where she hoped to fly under the radar. What could possibly go wrong if she just kept her life quiet? 

Stone has no interest in commitment. Dating always seemed to lead to broken promises and heartbreak, keeping it simple was easier on everyone. But then in the middle of his crazy world he meets this girl, and somehow the universe aligns leaving him wanting more. How can he make her see that it’s okay to trust again; how does he combine his two lives and make both of them worthy enough to be with her? 

If love is all that someone needs, then why are there so many broken souls in this world? Can one individual really make a change for the better and make peace within themselves and others? When two souls collide can they save each other?

Shannon’s Review:
This book was an awesome college love affair book. I loved and hated Seven. Seven had to grow on me in the beginning. She has insecurities. I think all us women can relate to her on that, but she is bit emotional. The author keeps you guessing on what really did happen in her past to make her the way she is. Seven is an emotional wreck throughout the book until the end when she becomes a badass.
 The first moment that Stone was introduced I couldn’t help but drooling. A MMA fighter, gorgeous eyes, built body, and tattoos, sorry where was I going with that thought….. Sorry back to reality. He is a bad boy, but hey we like it that way right. I love seeing the change in him throughout the story.
You will also be introduced to Tammy, Seven’s roommate, and a guy named Trent. Tammy is very outgoing and has her own issues to deal with too. I am thankful the author is giving us her book too soon. Trent is evil. Pure Evil. That is the only nicest way to describe him. I have other adjectives but they are too ugly to write.

 It was an emotional book full of drama making you scream wanting to know why and how everything happened. When I saw the end I wanted to scream. I need more. Then here comes the Epilogue. It ended well, but I could have had more of Stone.  It also keeps you under suspense till the end.

I give this book 4 hearts. I think you will all love it. So I give you a new book boyfriend we can all add to our list ladies. Stone Hastings is H.O.T. 

Life Altering Beautiful can be bought on Amazon or Goodreads
