Aly Percy is her family's ugly duckling, and she's never been allowed to forget it. So she knows better than to imagine that Cup Companion Arif al Najimi's blue gaze holds anything but contempt for her as a woman, or ever will. But if he's offering to show her just how wild one night with him can be, wouldn't she be a fool to turn down his charity? She may never get another offer like this one.

Arif al Najimi isn't sure why he's dreaming about the little scientist who's so determined to take crazy risks for the sake of her research into the endangered turtles of his country. But as luck would have it, he's going to get the chance to do a little research of his own…into the question of why Aly believes her own negative publicity about how desirable she is—and how hard it will be to convince her of the truth.
Wow!  I'm so excited that this is the first book in a series because it was amazing.  We just got these nifty new "Hot Pick" buttons, and I'm definitely giving it to this one.  Arif al Najimi was absolutely everything a hero should be.  He was also exotic, an animal lover and ecologist, and saved Aly's life a couple times.  While his views of women sometimes seems a little off, it really helped make him just a little too overprotective, but in the best possible way.

Aly was the traditional pretty and intelligent girl that didn't trust in her own beauty.  But this time there was a very good reason why.  And her reason why tied into so many other things in the story so beautifully that the whole back story was about as seamless as you could get.  I loved how she kept running off and driving Arif al Najimi crazy trying to keep an eye on her.

 Watching Aly and Arif al Najimi hunt for turtle nests and try to find out why they were dying off was a great story.  There was a lot more action than what seems possible in a turtle nest hunt.  There were even several times I found myself getting excited right along with them at a new next found.  The side characters served to boost the story and enhance the personalities of the characters in just the right way.  I don't think I could really find something I didn't like about this one.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
