I ran like hell from my past.
I didn't slow down, and I didn't look back.
But I couldn't outrun the memories...
or escape the nightmares.
I came to North Carolina to be alone.
Hayden attracts problems like a magnet.
She's looking for a hero to rescue her.
But I'm no knight in shining armor.
I'm a wounded animal – a Beast.
She tastes like Heaven.
She only adds to my Hell.
She makes me want things that I can't have, things I'll never deserve.
Love isn't always pretty.
Sometimes it's hard. Sometimes it's rough.
And sometimes it's f***ing dirty
Book 1 of the Beauty & Beast Duet
Love the Beast
Beast, oh Beast. You have ruined me for all others. This book was so gut wrenching one minute and so sweet the next, I didn't know know what emotion I was feeling. I cried over groceries, then I cried happy tears at a heartbeat, and then I cried some more.
And more. And more.
I love the way old characters come back together in times of need. Once a brother always a brother.
I love the new characters we met.
Truth, I didn't want this book to end. I am looking forward to the next book and seeing where all this ends up. Will the Beast be tamed?
This is the first book I've read by this author and though it's not my usual genre of romance, I found it to be compelling storytelling that grabbed my attention and surprised me by touching my heart. Beast is a modern day retelling of Beauty and the Beast with physically and emotionally ravaged characters that exist on the fringes of gang-like MC clubs and the violence that rules their existence. Beast wants nothing to do with Hayden and vice versa but extenuating circumstances force them to co-exist and their fledgling peace treaty soon becomes so much more. Warning! This book ends in a cliff-hanger but this author's mesmerizing style of storytelling is well worth waiting for. I'm a huge fan.
