Wattpad Review – Every Beast Needs a Beauty by Jonaxx


Every Beast Needs a Beauty is the first book of the Good Lips series by Jonaxx. This is one of Jonaxx’s earlier books and I wasn’t really that impressed when I read the first few pages. It was so corny and quite predictable and it doesn’t sound like Jonaxx. But I’m glad that my determination was paid off because the later chapters was getting better than the first. This may not be one of my favorites from Jonaxx, but it was still a really good read.

Bata pa lang ay namulat na si Sunny na tatlong bagay lang ang kailangan niya sa buhay: bahay, pera, at pamilya. Namuhay siyang mahirap sa loob ng labing siyam na taon at ngayong bente na siya ay hindi iyon nagbago. Ang tanging nag bago lang siguro sa kanya ngayon ay ang pagkawala ng kanyang katuwang sa buhay: ang kanyang ina. Hindi pa nakakabangon sa sakit ay pinili niyang magpakatatag at mabuhay para sa sarili at para sa mga pangarap.

Life is hard but it’s easy to be strong. Iyon ang panlaban niya, ang pagiging matatag at pursigido. She was invincible because of that, but will she still feel invincible with a beast around? Lalo na pag napaibig na siya nito? Mahina ba talaga ang mga babae pag dating sa pag ibig? Because she was sure as hell beginning to lose all her strength.

Ano nga ba ang gagawin Sunny kung ang magiging hadlang sa kanyang maabot ang lahat ng gusto ay ang siyang magpapaibig rin sa kanya ng husto? Worst. May magagawa talaga kaya siya?

Review

This book was one of Jonaxx’s earlier stories. I thought at first that  I already read it but when I checked my Goodreads account, it wasn’t on my read record. So last year, I decided to check the first few pages to know if I really did read it or not. And yes, I didn’t. All the books that I read from hers were her latest works so that explains it. When I read the first few pages of this book, I can’t see any touch of Jonaxx in here. It was really corny and it sounded like your typical cliché Tagalog romance (no offense meant) and it really irked me at that time. (I’m sorry Jonaxx) But while I was stranded with my mom at the port because of the typhoon (which was really a maddening experience) and I was too busy or you could say too annoy to open my bag and grab the paperback that I chose to bring with me for my holiday, I decided to check my Wattpad instead and this story was the only available story that was saved in my phone offline.

The crazy thing about this book was not the story (though I felt that it was almost there) but my determination to still read it even though I’m almost in the verge of losing my blood (nosebleeding) because it was so corny, which is very far from the Jonaxx that I love.

But along the way, the story started to affect me and in turn, I learned to like it. It started with a cliché plot and then corny lines and scenes but I was really amazed how Jonaxx transformed this seemingly cliché story into a really good one. The first few chapters were honestly corny and was quite predictable which sent me haywire but it gets better and better on the later chapters. This is exactly the reason why I love Jonaxx. She may have gave us a hint that it’s a cliché story but she will absolutely blow your mind on what she had in store for you on the later chapters. It was surprisingly unpredictable now and was intense which differentiate Jonaxx from other Tagalog romance writers. There’s a lot of things happened in this story that I’m sure will took me a lifetime to discuss so let me just assure you that it was really a moving read. There’s still some corny lines and scenes once in a while but it was so much better than the first few pages.

Another thing I started to admire in this story was the many conflicts. In normal situation, it would have made me confused but for a seemingly cliché plot like this one, the addition of some interesting conflicts may be a good blend for this story. But of course I hated the cliché third party and the matapobre and malditang mother of the hero, but I still think that it was fine. I guess it was because the hero really fights for the heroine. There’s really so much more in this story, so if you could endure the first pages, I’m sure you’ll come up with the same verdict as mine too when you finish this story.

It was an entertaining read but it wasn’t as good as her latest stories, so that explains my 3 stars. There may be some corny lines and scenes but I can never deny the fact that I was amazed with all those scenes Jonaxx managed to compile in this one story.

For the characters, I guess you could say that it was the first time I didn’t fall for Jonaxx’s heroes. All the stories I’ve read from hers always leaves me wanting to get the heroes and claim them for me, but for this story, I didn’t. I guess it was because of my first impression, as what they always say, first impression lasts. I wasn’t really impressed when I was introduced to his character, I always think there’s something weird about him. Now reading the 5th chapter, I’m still not impressed. But later on, I’ve got to learn more about his character but I’m still not falling. He can be sweet, I know, but the chemistry, nah! It didn’t affect me at all. But in all fairness, I love that he always fights for the heroine. He’s possessive and a bit intimidating too like what most Jonaxx’s heroes are but he still didn’t won me over. Also, he drops some lines that sounds like a creepy stalker to me once in a while which really makes me cringe lol haha. But overall, I guess he was ok for the heroine, lol.

As for the heroine, she was fine I guess. But I don’t always agree with all the decisions she made, good thing the guy is really head over heels for her lol. My! Haba ng hair mo te. So I guess that’s it?

Just like every stories of Jonaxx, this one ended with one chapter based from the hero’s POV where he talks about how he started to fell in love with the heroine and all his thoughts about his love for her. For this one, I have to say that it was lacking. I understand how the girl started to fall for him but for the guy? My! I didn’t understand it at all, really. I mean, she should be a no-no for him considering the history of their parents, right? But he ended up falling in love…hard. But oh well, over the later pages, I was able to convince how he really loves her.

I don’t admit it openly, but I guess I’m a sexist when it comes to romance, haha. I always want the guy to always do the pursuing and this story gave me that big time! My! The hero in this story was so smitten that even how many times the heroine left him, he still wants her. If the situation was reversed, I’m sure I could conclude the girl blind of love but for this story, I didn’t at all. I’m not being sexist here, haha, it’s just that, the girl always left for a good reason, and if it was me, I’ll have no other choice, it’s always like “me against the world” for her. It pains me when one of the main characters’ parents guilt trip them into doing something but I have to say that saludo ako for the guy’s love for the heroine that he’ll really do anything for her.

The ending was ofcourse beautiful but we didn’t get the chance to really know what happens to his mother. But oh well, at least it’s still a happy ending. Not my favorite from Jonaxx, but it was still a really good read from Queen Jonaxx.
