Every Beautiful Piece by A. M. Johnson 

Evangeline Bell is a quiet person. Good at staying invisible and out of the attention of others. Her shyness has always kept her out of trouble. And her job as an OR clerk helps her stay out of the limelight at her job as well. 

But she's always had eyes for the Prince. Dr. Lucas Prince that is. He's gorgeous but he's a beast. He's anything but nice. But every beast has a secret to why he is a beast and that he does. 

After Prince finds that he has left something in his scrub pocket, he finds himself running back into the hospital to get what he left in his scrubs that he dumbed into the dirty linen. 

He finds himself trapped in the hospital basement with Evangeline looking for the photo he left in his pocket. These two strike up conversation and find themselves lost in each other's tears. And the stories that make them...them. 

Both of them have struggled through life and are both grasping at the seems. But can the beast become a true prince to get his life back in order? Or will these two be lost to their past? 

This short is so beautiful and so powerful in only a way that Johnson can bring. I loved this short like crazy. It's such a breathtaking short and a gorgeous retelling of a story that we all know too well. 

I look forward to reading more of the shorts inside this anthology.
