    1. 4 Emotional stars Beneath You’re Beautiful follows Victoria on her journey right after the ending on Beneath it All. She had been in a difficult period of her life, not only fighting breast cancer, but also discovering who was worthy on being on her side and who wasn’t. At the point comes Dr. Blake Forrester, her plastic surgeon, who was one of the people who supported her in this journey and now comes to request for a chance to be in her life, but not only as her doctor. Victoria needs to t [...]

    2. Book 2 picks up exactly where we left off. Victoria is moving on and recovering in more ways than one. She stays as upbeat as she can, always bringing us a bit of humor.“I’m bald, I don’t have boobs, and my skin is dry and pasty. Let’s be honest, I look like the goddamn female version of Gollum from Lord of the Rings.”This part of her story gave us the same emotions as the beginning did. Victoria has pain and she heals, she loves and she loses. Through it all she remains strong not jus [...]

    3. remember when I read this book in June of 2014?Beneath It AllI have been waiting on PINS & NEEDLES for THIS book. Tori pulled out all the stops and made a home run with this book. The writing is great. The characters are real. The setting is my home state (Minnesota!). There is just so so so much I really like about this story. I want ALL OF YOU TO READ IT. **Yes it is about cancer. but please don't let that scare you - it really is about love & character (who you are when no one is watc [...]

    4. "Beneath, You're Beautiful" is an engaging, heartwarming and emotional tale of one woman's fight against breast cancer, overcoming betrayal, and coming to terms with her new life that happens to include a new love interest, Blake. Through it all, Victoria is lucky to have the love and support of her best friends, as well as Blake. I loved reading about the dynamics the best friends all shared. Each one of them truly shined. Everyone should be so lucky to have friends like Bobbie Jo, Dana and Jen [...]

    5. This series is one that has been on my tbr list for awhile. It's one of those series that had me wanting to read it so badly, but I was scared at all the emotions that it would make me feel while I read it. And, I was right - it did make me feel everything. I cried, I laughed, I ached, I cheered, my heart broke and rejoiced and best of all I felt hope.I could never say enough wonderful things about Victoria. She faced head on, not only the cancer that invaded her life and body - but the loss of [...]

    8. I loved Beneath it All and I feel like I've been waiting forever for Beneath, You're Beautiful. We pick up right where we left off. Victoria is deciding to call Blake and take him up on his coffee date offer. I missed Blake. The chemistry between Blake and Victoria is off the charts. He's sexy, charming, funny and deeply cares for her. Victoria is still fighting her battle with cancer, but she's becoming more independent and less angry day by day. As Blake and Victoria start a romance, a lot of [...]

    9. What can I say about Beneath, You're Beautiful but it was simply emotionally gratifying and beautifully written.You can expect to be taken to places so low you didn’t know you could get there, but in the end, through all the strife, the road is so beautiful you don’t even mind. She gives you layers upon layers of raw beauty, just enough to balance out the pain. And when you find yourself on the last page, you sigh with relief. Not because it’s over, but because you survived. You survived a [...]

    10. This is the conclusion to Beneath It All. If you haven't read it, I highly recommend it!!In this story, we continue to see Victoria deal with everything. She still has that amazing support system: her friends and family and now Blake :) (Dr Sexy). I can't put into words how much I LOVED that man.

Something happened that I didn't see coming and the te [...]

I honestly don’t know if I would have the courage to go through the battles Victoria went through. Dr. Mc Hottie aka Blake has a sweet soul and is sexy as sin. It was great to see Noah get his just desserts. This book leaves me giggling one minute, highlighting one-liners hoping I can use them one day and in [...]

    12. Omg I absolutely loved this book!!! Once I read BIA I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book and read more of Victoria's story. How would things go for her? Would she give in to Dr McHottie and go have coffee with him? Would there be a future for them or would Noah have a change of heart and try to get his wife back?

    14. The second book in this duet was even better the first. Tori Madison has proven that she is one helluva great writer and can take something so personal and so close to her very being and give it life. This saga of a seemingly happily married woman and the struggles she faces in battling breast cancer kept me riveted.In this book, Victoria is now pushing forward with her life after her less than noble husband left her for another woman while she so bravely wages the war against this hideous disea [...]

    18. This book is a continuation of Beneath It All. It is Victoria's journey from sickness, desolation, healing, to loving and being loved again and believing that you deserve that love. Through a super support group: Bobbie Jo, Jen, and Dana, Victoria is given a second chance at not only life but love.

    19. Beneath You’re Beautiful ReviewThis is my honest review in return for an ARC.The storyline that is included in this story is very close to my heart as a friend of mine had cancer. I knew yet again that this book was going to make me cry, and yeah yet again I had puffy and red eyes from reading this book. Throughout the book there are moments that was actually quite difficult to read but this is a story about survival, about fighting and how life doesn’t always work out the way you want it to [...]

You identify yourself wit [...]

    21. A beautiful ending to the seriesDid you read Beneath It All? Stop. Turn around and one-click that. Then come back to read the reviews. Because “Hello?”If you read my review for book one, I was hesitant. However, I jumped into book two without indecision. Now, Ms. Madison takes on the rest of Victoria’s journey. New chapters are written with Bobbi Jo, Jen, Dana and Blake. Oh Blake (fans self). New characters are introduced such as Margaret and Jillian. Although Jillian is a minor character, [...]

    26. ♡♡♡Reviewed by Book Fancy Blog ♡♡♡Have you ever read one of those stories that you just can't get your mind off of it? Well this book has struck with me.

    27. Tori Madison does it again!!! She shares a strength in Victoria that I hope to have should I ever find myself hearing those 4 words. She shows true friendship in Bobbie Jo, Dana and Jen. The relationships in this book are so real, you can relate so easily to these women and sometimes feel like you're just another member of their group. BYB is another roller coaster ride of emotions but these emotions are real.I laughed and highlighted little funnies. I cried, felt struggles and loses as my own b [...]

    28. What a super fabulous ending to this series!What a journey Victoria walked. She's been to hell and back, has moved ahead from a cowardly sleaze ball and come out on top of the world.
