Eleven. A name. A title. A sentence passed. If you aren’t a Beauty, you’re less than a person. You’re a commodity known as a Potential… and you only have so many chances to qualify as a human being.
In her seventeen years, Eleven has seen the best and worst in humanity. She’s been passed around and abused by the bad. She’s hoped and dreamed for the good. And she’s despaired for the hand she’s been dealt. Now she’s been purchased by a wealthy man who has the ability to improve her life and help her become a Beauty – if she can put up with his erratic and controlling personality for long enough, that is. Complicating things is the appearance of a stunningly beautiful young man with amethyst eyes who treats Eleven to the rarest form of attention for a Potential: kindness.
Does Eleven trust her powerful owner to help her escape this life of servitude and enslavement, or does she gamble everything on the enigmatic young man who seems to offer her more than she could ever imagine possible?
About the Author: C.E Wilson
C.E. Wilson is currently living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with her husband, beautiful daughter, a chubby beagle and two cats. They are all the loves of her life. When she’s not writing youngadult fantasy novels, she enjoys writing short stories on her Deviant Art page. She loves to write stories involving giants and little people (also known as GT) and she can’t decide what she loves more: horror movies or shoujo manga. She has a bachelor’s degree in English Education so she has a soft spot for older literature authors including John Milton, William Shakespeare, and stories such as Paradise Lost and Beowolf. On a side note, nothing helps her to write more than drinking good beer and watching The Twilight Zone
Me afterwards…wanting the next book:
Alright I think that about sums it….
I’ve received a free e-arc of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
What can I say about C.E Wilson that I have not said before. She is becoming one of my favorite authors. I absolutely love her novels and series and everything she writes. Heck…I’ll even read her shopping list. TeeHee! Anyhow, I absolutely loved Untitled Beauty and everything about it.
The Story is about a girl called Eleven who is ranked 11 on the scale of beauty which runs from 1 to 20. In the world Eleven lives in, you cannot prosper if you are not a Beauty. If you are not a Beauty, you are called a Potential, meaning that you have a chance at becoming a Beauty, but depending on where you rank, you might need some surgical procedures done and such to make a Beauty out of you. You’ll need a sponsor to pay for those procedures and that is what Eleven is hoping for. She has been abused in the past and is sold to someone wealthy who can sponsor her for surgeries to make her a Beauty. When Eleven encounters a boy who treats her differently than anyone else has, she is confused. Why it this person, out of all the Beauties, is the only one who treats her as an actual person? On top of that, Eleven does not feel so good about her new owner…will he even help make her a Beauty? Or will she be stuck as a slave? You will find out once you read the book.
Wow…that sounds awesome! And it is. I knew before I read the synopsis of this book that it was going to be epic and it was. I loved the story line and all of the characters. My favorite was…Eleven. She had so much depth and I connected with her from page 1. I felt so much pity towards Eleven and her abusive life. I felt the pain she did and I seriously was affected whenever she was abused or when anything else ever happened to her. Eleven was so amazing of a character that I always hoped for the best for her, even though she is not a real person…I kind of felt that she was. That is how amazing a writer C.E Wilson is. I love her.
All of the characters in this story were amazing and I felt they added to the whole world Wilson created. I just don’t know what else to say besides that I loved this book so very much! I absolutely loved the world that Wilson created. Basing a whole world on the idea that Beauty is everything? Who could have thought that!? In this world, to some people, beauty is everything. I feel that the people of today give looks a whole lot of importance when it is whats on the inside that counts. I loved how C.E created a world that is quite believable considering that looks are what people think about. They say never to judge a book by its cover but that is what everyone is doing. People judge you by your looks because that is the first thing they see…not the person that you are. I loved the idea the Wilson created with the world giving importance to Beauty as it kind of does now.
I’ve fallen in love with the things C.E Wilson writes. I love how all of her books are different and creative and original. I loved her writing style, it was easy to understand and I thought it was very clear and the words just flowed together. Also, I liked the pace of the book. It was quite a quick read, but the content of the story does not make it a light read. Some heavy things happen in this book. There were so many places where my mouth was agape. So many times I’ve swooned and so many times I could not put my Kindle down…I was literally jumping everywhere trying to contain myself. So much excitement and oh so much happening. That ending was lovely but I felt that many of my questions were left unanswered…and then I found out that there will bee a second installment in this series so hopefully those questions will be answered soon. And I cannot wait for the next book. I WANT IT NOW!
I did love Untitled Beauty very much, but I felt that it was too short. Like I wanted more. At one point, I was a little confused at a particular part of the story, but other than that, it was amazing. I really wish Wilson writes more about Eleven and I really do hope that my unanswered questions are answered in the coming books.
This is a must read. It is amazing, different and captivating. It is so interesting that the first few lines just suck you into the story. I highly recommend this book to everyone. It is a quick read…but it is quite heavy as to the events that take place in the book. You must read this book and all other books by C.E Wilson because they are all amazing.
I really hope you give this book a read and I do hope you enjoy it as much as I have. Thank you for reading my review and I hope you liked it!
