Synopsis:  Becca Ward knows that magic is real…

Two years ago not only had she and her best friend Alex found a real-life Sleeping Beauty in the middle of Los Angeles, they also discovered that they were powerful in their own right. They’ve managed to keep both their fae powers and their friend Lilia’s identity as a medieval princess a secret and live a normal life. Now their normalcy is threatened by the return of their former advisor at the Gem and Mineral Museum—and Becca’s least favorite person, Nicholas Hunt.

…and she’s about to find out that more than one fairy tale is true.

Nicholas has been obsessed with proving Lilia’s identity and the existence of magic. While working on an archeology dig he discovered an ancient fae artifact—a mirror that is imbued with a powerful protection spell that twists his obsession, and his body, until he is more beast than man. In order to protect her friends, Becca is forced to help him, and she is surprised to find that in spite of his outward appearance, Nicholas is no longer the beast she remembers. Will she let herself be the beauty that breaks the curse, or will she let her prejudice against him stop her from discovering true love?

My Thoughts: This second installment in the A Fairytale trilogy is focused on Becca. Atone is the retelling of the classic Beauty and the Beast. True to the classic the Beast is difficult to get along with and the Beauty is stubborn and determined to see things to the end. Even though I had a good idea as to how this story would end I couldn't stop turning the pages. 
Getting a better understanding of Becca and how she grew up really put her hate/hate relationship with Nicholas in perspective. Regardless of how Becca feels about men she is loyal to her family an those she loves. Atone, for Becca, is a journey of discovery and change. I'm looking forward to the final book in this series and what is in store for Lilia
