Sixteen- year-old Trinity is pretty sure life sucks and then you die. First her father leaves to be with his pregnant girlfriend. Then her mother runs off with her newly discovered soul mate. When she's busted for underage drinking, she's sent to live with her Grandma Sarah in the one-horse town of Disappointment Cove.

An expert at self-pity, Trinity is positive no one's problems are as enormous as hers until she meets Logan. He's the new boy at school who has been horribly disfigured. He's rude, arrogant and hard to figure out. Trinity has no idea what caused his scars or his attitude. And from the rumors going around, she's not sure she wants to know.

When the two of them are paired-up on an after school project, Trinity sees a compassionate side to Logan and realizes he isn't the person everyone thinks he is.

My Thoughts:

Trinity Alexander is living with her Grandma Sarah in Disappointment Cove, Missouri since she got in a bit of trouble at her other school and was sent to live there.  What she doesn't know is that this is when her life will change completely and for the better.

Logan Sharpe is the new boy in school that Trinity has been appointed to show around since they are both in the Outreach Program.  Even though she has only been at Disappointment Cove High School for three weeks, she agrees to the task.  She notices that he walks with a limp and also has burns on his body that he tries to hide with a hoodie.  Despite the scars, she still finds him handsome and even jealous of the girls competing for his attention.  Though Trinity has just met Logan, she is drawn to him- his caring side, his mood swings and even his secrets.

This book was amazing!  I was really addicted to this book while reading it.  The way the author describes the people, places, and events that occur, made me feel like I was really experiencing it myself.  I was pulled in from the first chapter and engrossed the whole way till the end.  I love it when a book makes such an impact that you catch yourself thinking about it days later.  That's what this story did for me.

Lori Clark is an author that I have never read before, so I had no idea what to expect when I started Beauty's Beholder. 

The characters of Trinity and Logan are incredible.  Trinity is the type of girl who doesn't hold back, and when she has something to say, she says it.  She has a tendency to put her foot in her mouth, especially when she is talking with Logan.  She is unique, smart, and a lover of animals and that is what makes her irresistible to Logan.  Logan is a real flirt when it comes to Trinity.  When she tries to talk to him about his past, his scars, or even his family life, he just gets all moody towards her.  He realizes that he does it and apologizes for it later, but he knows that he is gonna have to tell her the truth soon before she starts believing all the rumors going around school.  He has an amazing heart when it comes to taking care of all the animals at the shelter and he doesn't let his limp hold him back.  Their love of animals is something that they have in common and they grow from that into something pretty amazing.  I even loved the other characters.  Her BFF, Petrie, her Grandma Sarah (who is a pretty awesome Grandma, btw) and all the other characters  that make this story fulfilling. 
This story was very believable.  It could happen to anyone at anytime and that is what kept me reading.  I will definitely be reading more of Lori Clark's stories when they become available.  The writing was amazing as well as the romance, drama, and secrets.  If you haven't read this, I highly recommend that you do.  I guarantee that you'll love it too.
