Curse Me Beautiful (Spoilers)

Curse Me Beautiful: A Paranormal Academy Bully Romance by [Marie Bradford]

Matt Hallows reigns over the all boys Drazin School of Wizardry. The biggest, strongest most athletic kid at the school, he lords it over the other boys, demanding their respect with the force of his will and, when necessary, his fists.

That changes within the first few pages of Marie Bradford’s Curse Me Beautiful, when Hallows arch-rival douses him with a potion that soon changes him into a five foot tall female with generous curves and serious, teen female hormonal issues. Falling squarely in the enemies to lovers genre, the book follows Matt as he gets in touch with his feminine side as, to his horror, he finds himself getting the hots for the very boy who stole his manhood in the first place.

The heart of this novel is the relationship between Matt and Alistair, which begins as pure hatred and evolves into something much more. Bradford is a skilled writer who has clearly studied the genre. The rising tension of the couple’s physical relationship is matched by the merging closeness of their emotional connection. There are twists and turns, pullings backs, and self-discoveries. Hallows, initially horrified at being female, comes to find more and more things he enjoys about his new life and body.

I’ll leave it at that in terms of the plot. Let me finish by saying I have read a lot of gender bender fiction, and this stands as one of the best I have read. You do have to allow the author a few leaps in logic in terms of the plot, but this is a journey worth taking.

  1. I love that book. Thanks for recommending it. I feel there’s justice and lessons we’re learned in it. Alistar learned a lot unlike pattenia who got worse and learned nothing. Matt learned and got stronger. She didn’t lose her ambitions. It was great
