[Blog Tour] Beautiful by Ella Bordeaux

BEAUTIFUL by Ella Bordeaux
Release Date: June 7, 2016
Genre: YA 
Skylar Woods unknowingly drew Wyatt Smith toward her.  He wanted … needed to learn everything about her. Though he sensed her beauty was more than just skin deep, Wyatt struggled to understand the sadness she attempted to mask with an amazing smile.
 When Skylar’s eyes met Wyatt’s for the first time, her breath caught and she couldn’t look away from the new guy standing in the school office smiling at her. The connection only grew when Wyatt sat next to her in English class, allowing Skylar to dare to believe he might actually be interested in getting to know her.
 For the first time in months, she felt alive.
 The moment Wyatt expressed an interest, the notes started again … the ones that reminded her of a past she could never move beyond—the event that changed her life forever and robbed her of any chance of happiness.
 Never believing the rumors being spread around school about Skylar, Wyatt made sure he went out of his way to prove how much he cared about her.
 But when the past resurfaces, will Wyatt stand by her side? Or will he turn against her like everyone else?

My Review
Beautiful by Ella Bordeaux wasn't a book that I was prepared for. It took me out of the real world and I was stuck in the book. The story took over and all I could do was keep reading along as all kinds of thoughts ran through my head. This wasn't an easy book to read because it had some really hard parts, but that's what made this book so powerful. 

Skylar has suffered a lot and it's something she faces daily. The bullying does not stop and the rumors continue. Then Wyatt shows up, new boy at her school, and he isn't like anyone. He doesn't believe the rumors and he goes straight to the source, straight to Skylar. Skylar can't believe that this handsome boy is going to HER for the truth. Can Skylar accept that Wyatt is there for her in good intentions?

Skylar, I just want to wrap you up in a big hug and shield you from the world but you do an amazing job at handling everything yourself. Except I was pretty mad that you don't believe Wyatt. That boy is crazy about you! I understand though. All that bullying is hard. I think this is a great book to teach people just how hard a toll bullying takes on a person. I think Skylar was a beautiful character.

Wyatt, I have nothing but good things to say about you. Wyatt is a character that is strong and I love that he doesn't go with the crowd or peer pressure. He is his own person and he follows his own path. He really knows what he wants and I am so glad that he doesn't let others influence his decisions. I am so happy that he pursues Skylar. He is just her perfect guy for her. And he melted my heart every time he called Skylar Angel. Talk about swoon!

Beautiful is a book that you will devour in one sitting because there is no way that you can stop. As I was reading I was feeling the growth of Skylar and Wyatt. The book is written in a long time span and I love it. It was easy to follow along and as the book was moving forward in time I didn't notice the time gap because it was written well, it flowed well. What I was very EMOTIONAL about was that ending! I was not expecting that at all. This book left me shocked at the end. I am still reeling right now. Because SERIOUSLY, I did not even see that coming! But yeah, enough of my small outburst there. Just go read this book.
