So, I can objectively look at this book and see why I should give it fewer than three stars. Subjectively rating it, however, is another story. The Beauty & the Beast trope is my Kryptonite, though the hero here isn't really all that beastly, to my thinking. Unless, of course, you consider gingers to be the epitome of horrifying. Seriously. High quality? Nah, sorry to say. Cracky and at times utterly ridiculous? Absolutely! Sometimes that's just what you need, y'know?
