❥My Review:

My Beautiful picks up where book one, Beautiful Chances left off. Lily and Kyle continue to face her struggles together. Lily shows her strength in this book and overcomes some serious hurdles.

Following the advice from her therapist, Lily and Kyle make the trip to Lily's hometown in Colorado. She reconnects with her family, both still present and lost. Lily is overwhelmed with emotions as she surrounds herself with her past. She knows she needs to come to terms with things and move on, but it's difficult to do so because she refuses to let go of her beloved parents & sister.

There's a lot of emotion in this book. Throughout the entire novel, you really get to see the magnitude of Lily and Kyle's love for each other. There were some surprising turn of events that snuck up here and there. It definitely kept the plot interesting.

The questions left unanswered after book one were finally revealed. Once one secret was told, the mystery behind the threatening notes began to add up for me. While it wasn't a major part of the storyline, it still added some seasoning to the story.

My Beautiful closes nicely, but doesn't necessarily come to a finish. There will be a third book coming next year. Nothing was really nagging me after finishing this book, but there is definitely more to Kyle than meets the eye. The first two books in the series had Lily as the center focus. I get the sense that there's a lot more that he needs to share with her.

Alicia Rae did a wonderful job with the continuation of Lily and Kyle's story. I look forward to reading book 3 and more of Rae's work in general.
