Eighty seven billion dollars.
One dead New York business mogul.
No heirs.
No wives.
No relatives.
Eighty seven billion dollars.
Not hers yet.
He doesn’t deserve them.
He doesn’t know what to do with them.
She does.
She always has.
Eighty seven billion dollars.
He’s overwhelmed.
She’s prepared.
That will should have had her name.
Not his.
Eighty seven billion dollars.
His looks are a bonus.
Her looks are her weapon.
He’s fighting a losing battle against his heart.
He doesn’t know it yet.
Eighty seven billion dollars.
She gets everything she wants.
He’s what she wants.
Love has nothing to do with it.
To get to where you’re going, sometimes you need to step on a few people to get there.
Good thing her heels are sharp.

3.5 Stars
Let me first say, I know we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but I totally did with this one. This cover is so striking, so eye-catching, I had to read it!
This book is a contradiction for me. I had a hard time deciding where to fall on the star rating. In the end, I had to rate without emotion, otherwise, this book would have been less than 3 stars for me.
It must also be said that the author clearly warns the reader that this is different from what they have read from her before. With that in mind, I am not opposed to reading other works byt this author. In fact, I'm pretty curious now. 
          Beautiful Little Fool is incredibly well written. It’s clean and on point, it flows pretty well, albeit, there were a few times when it was dry and I got a little antsy for it to get moving again.
          I certainly can’t fault the author on her character development. Each one had their own distinct part to play in the book, and I thought they were well cast for their roles. In this vein however, lies the main problem. I absolutely, irrefutably, irrevocably (yes, it deserves those big words!) HATED Cedar. Now, in the author’s mind, perhaps this is a success, I’m certain she wasn’t attempting to get me to like her. However, I don’t want to read a whole book about someone I so vehemently dislike. It left me feeling disappointed, a little angry, and desperate for a book that would erase all that negativity.  
          If I were to rate this book based solely on the feels, it would get a pretty low rating. However, it seems unjust to do that and completely overlook the fact that it is so well written. I think it’s possible that the author would see my emotional status at the end as a success. But, it didn’t work for me. That being said, I imagine there are a lot of people who would be completely fascinated with this book. It’s different, something new, and completely unexpected.
          It would be a hard one for me to recommend, but that’s only because I don’t know how this would be received from others. I would however, start a discussion about it, interested in hearing other’s opinions, and perhaps, those who would like the book will become aware of it.
          Definitely on the fence. 3.5 Stars
 KK Hendin’s real life ambition is to become a pink fluffy unicorn who dances with rainbows. But the schooling for that is all sorts of complicated, so until that gets sorted out, she’ll just write. Preferably things with angst and love. And things that require chocolate. 
KK spends way too much time on Twitter (where she can be found as @kkhendin), and rambles on occasion over atwww.kkhendinwrites.blogspot.com.
