#BookReview: Ensnared by Rita Stradling

 
A Near-Future Retelling of Beauty and the Beast 

Alainn’s father is not a bad man. He’s a genius and an inventor. When he’s hired to create the robot Rose, Alainn knows taking the money is a mistake. 

Rose acts like a human. She looks exactly like Alainn. But, something in her comes out wrong.

To save her father from a five year prison sentence, Alainn takes Rose’s place. She says goodbye to the sun and goes to live in a tower no human is allowed to enter. She becomes the prisoner of a man no human is allowed to see. 

Believing that a life of servitude lies ahead, Alainn finds a very different fate awaits her in the company of the strange, scarred recluse.

For a retelling this was creative, but as a story it fell a little flat for me.  It was ok but it just wasn't one of those books that I was like die hard to read.  The characters were great as well was the story but side stories kept bogging the story down it just wasn't needed.  I do think I will try another story from this author in the future as I did love the writing it was just parts of the story that just didn't work well of me.
