My Beautiful Enemy is a literary fiction book by author Sherry Thomas.
Catherine Blade’s unusual beauty and boldness have carried her far in the world. She still doesn’t have the freedom to live the life she chooses. Finally a chance to win her independence, who was supposed to stand in her way but was the only man she’d ever loved – the only one who’d ever betrayed her. Despite the scars Catherine left him, Captain Leighton Atwood was never able to forget the mysterious girl who had once completely captivated him. When she suddenly reappears in his life, he refuses to approach her. He couldn’t deny the longing for her that reigned in his heart.
Their reunion plunges them into a web of spies, traitors, and dangerous enemies. When everything is at stake, Leighton and Catherine are forced to work together to find a way out. They want to find safety and happiness, they must first forgive and learn to trust each other again.
My Beautiful Enemy by Sherry Thomas follows closely on the heels of The Hidden Blade. I would say this once again, this time having finished the 2nd book that signals the end of this duology; you have to read The Hidden Blade first in order to really get into the characters Leighton Atwood and Bai Ying-Hua (Catherine Blade), whose tragic and moving pasts entwine both of them in a way that’d not be felt if you just end up reading My Beautiful Enemy as a standalone.
My Beautiful Enemy tells the story of Catherine Blade aka Bai Ying-hua, who is tracking the three jade tablets for the treasure it might unearth based on the legend of the monks that had been a part of Catherine’s life when she had been growing up. She seeks the tablets on behalf of her stepfather Da-ren, the closest thing she has left as family, to win his approval and perhaps be considered worthy of all that he had done for her.
Catherine is well versed in the art of fighting, she is like a lethal blade honed to perfection. But her life had not come without making a formidable enemy in its wake. The man who searches for her seeks vengeance of the kind that needs Catherine to be in her best form, something she has been hard pressed to achieve ever since the last encounter between them. Her journey takes her to London, the stories of a city that teems with life according to her childhood friend that fails to live up to her expectations. And then it happens; she crosses paths with that of her lover, the lover that she had poisoned trying to kill him, the man she’d searched for in vain after, the man who still has the ability to bring her to her knees, the only man she has ever loved.
