"Disturbingly Beautiful" review
J & L Wells

Nell was the governess to Mr Buchannan's daughter Abigale. After Abigale succumbed to pneumonia Nell decided that with her education that maybe it was time to change what she did, it hurt too bad to lose someone that she cared so much for. Maybe she could teach instead it was something that she needed to decide but not right away. Mr Buchannan's offer to her to stay until his sister's arrival and his recommendation for her to become governess to her child was something that she needed to think about. She decided to stick around but after the confession of finding her disturbingly beautiful that he told her she decided that she needed to stay away from him even though he was very pleasing looking he still made her uncomfortable. His sister would not arrive for a couple of weeks so she took this time to further her love for reading losing herself in the fictional stories. She did have a very vivid imagination and at times she found herself reliving one in particular. Finding her real TRUE love!

What did I like? Of course, it is even better when they include two things, romance and mystery. This story has just that. Starting out in the 1800's is another era that I really like and intrigues me, also having the lead man very handsome does not hurt either.

What did I dislike? Well, the only thing I can think of is that the lead character was not me. I would love to first live during that time but second be able to time travel. Maybe it would be wise for me to start in the 21st century go back to the 18th though.

What will you like? You will find another well written story developed with vivid details and rich descriptions. You can tell the amount of research that this team does for their books because it shows in the details when they describe the locations and the clothes along with all the other minor events that happen. The clothes are the best, although I feel like I am standing in the same places that they write about. I can safely say that this team has mastered the genre of time travel. This book though tops all of their others. The plot is so involved and has so many twists and turns that when it ended I was totally amazed. I never saw that coming! I know that I along with many others have said that before but believe me when I say this... I NEVER saw that coming in my wildest dreams. I LOVED IT!!!!! Wow, it takes you for a ride that will really draw you in so deep and yet it was SO perfect. I received an advanced copy for free but the best thing about reviewing for authors is being able to give my honest opinion for their work. I can hardly wait for the next book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Start to a Time Travel Romance Series With Lots of Potential! 12 January 2015
By Stephanie Ward - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
'Disturbingly Beautiful' is the enchanting first book in a New Adult time travel romance series. It follows the main character - Nell - as she goes about her life as a governess at Haunchcroft estate after her charge, Abigail, has passed away. It doesn't take long before the master of the house, Mr. Buchannan, begins to make intimate advances towards her. Nell finds her master to be a handsome man, but doesn't like his character or personality. His advances towards her are unwanted, but he doesn't seem to care. As the time passes, Nell begins to realize that she has been at the center of an intricate plot the family concocted - and that she will never be allowed to leave the estate as promised. When an intruder on the estate comes across Nell on accident - she chases him through what turns out to be a rip in time. On the other side of this opening, she finds a world completely different than her own. One where women have rights of their own, equality with men, and are listened to with respect. It's here that she also stumbles upon a true friend and gains a whole new outlook on life. One thing Nell never expected - aside from going through a rip in time - is finding herself in the future time with her unwanted admirer and master from her own century. Why is he there alongside her in this far-away and distant time? Is he the same person as the man she knows at Haunchcroft estate with his cold and distant demeanor and unwanted advances? Or is this future version a completely different man - one that sees her in a whole new light? Could this man possibly be the same one from her reoccurring dreams - her true love?

I'm usually a huge sucker when it comes to true love and romance in books, so it's no surprise that I loved that aspect of the story in this one. Aside from the romantic aspects of the story, I was fascinated by the opening/rip in time that Nell goes through. It's mysterious and defies every possibility, but I really enjoyed seeing Nell in the future - with all the women's rights and advances in equality that seemed impossible to fathom in her own time. She reacted pretty much how almost everyone would in a situation like that, so even that crazy part of the story line made Nell all the more realistic to me as a character. She's a great lead for the story - smart, determined, honorable, kind, loving, and devoted. She has her flaws just like everyone else, but these only served to make her easy to identify with. I haven't read many time travel books, so I'm always intrigued by how the author fits it into the plot, along with all the details surrounding it. Every author has a different perspective and way of writing about time travel, and I find it interesting to compare them to see what they have in common as well as what's different. The writing was well done with a natural pace and easy flow with great use of imagery and detailed descriptions that makes the reader feel like they're inside the story beside Nell. There were some parts that felt a bit slow to me - they kind of popped up here and there throughout the book - but that's just my personal opinion and it didn't effect my reading experience very much. I definitely recommend this book to fans of science fiction, romance, and time travel lovers. This is a great start to a series that has loads of potential. I'll definitely be reading the sequel when it comes out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect mix of regency and time travel 15 November 2014
By Laura L. Hunter - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Disturbingly Beautiful was a glorious and rich read. I enjoyed it far better than The Untimely series, and I loved those books! With the perfect mix of regency and time travel elements, it makes for an enjoyable read. There's a few twists and turns that make you cry out and yell at the book. I totally recommend this to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thrilling historical time traveling romance novel! 28 November 2014
By The Amazing TimTam - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
well written story which unfolded with richly detailed descriptions, from the way the author describes the locations + eras and to even the way a character smelled just goes to show the great care they put into their work.. I loved reading about Nell, the heroine of the book,coming into her own. from the first chapter to the last chapter there was boundless amount of character growth for her and I truly appreciated that. I adored her friendship with Jeremy and her time in the 1960’s you could definitely empathize with her outsider feelings when it came to certain situations. The plot is itself is so worldbuilding that I was desperate to know even more about Jeremy’s time traveling abilities and why she was so susceptible to it all involved and has so many twists and turns that when it ended I was totally amazed. Like some other reviewers I never saw the ending coming!! it was like total shocker!! a definite must read!

4.0 out of 5 stars First time reading this kind of genre and I enjoyed it 20 November 2014
By Briana Pacheco - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
3.5 stars
I'll start with I've never read a book in this genre before so I have no idea what to expect. I think readers who enjoy time-travel and historical romance will enjoy this so pick it up! :) That being said, I enjoyed this but I was confused at times. I was kind of all over the place (I'm not used to reading books set in 1800's) but I kept going. This book has some humor, romance and loss. And that cover is beautiful. I admit, I picked this up because of it. I don't know if my review will help because I'm not used to this type of genre so I don't know if the authors hit the mark on what they wanted to do but the writing was really good with details that the reader will enjoy.
I'd recommend this.
