Haley Constantine traded her life for her father's safety. Now she's trapped in a castle with the Beast of Bishop's Landing.
Her own family wants her dead.
The only man who can save her is the one she can't trust.
Dangerous. Tortured. Furious. Leo Morelli wears a mask of cruelty to cover up a lifetime's worth of scars. He's been injured, but that only makes him fight harder. The only thing he cares about more than revenge is the woman he’s come to love.
HIDDEN BEAUTY is the second book in the Beauty and the Beast trilogy from USA Today bestselling author Amelia Wilde.
This is the continuation of Leo and Haley’s story and OMGOSH is it freaking fantastic. It starts where Secret Beast ended. Amelia has stepped it up in this story. I am just a wash of emotions. This took me on another emotional ride. You find out more about Leo’s past and it just hurt my heart finding out what he went through. We meet his sister Eva, and oh boy is she a force to be reckoned with. Leo is now more willing to do anything to keep Haley safe. While he goes about this a little wrong, his intentions are good. He just needed to voice his position a little better, but then he wouldn’t be the beast he shows everyone. One of the few people who have seen the real Leo is now Haley. While this has action, hurt, despair, deception, it also has love. I was completely blown away by this ending and need the Final Rose. I need to know what is going to happen.
This is the second book in the series and it’s as good as the first one. The first book ended on a cliffhanger and this one picks up right where it left off in the first one. Amelia has outdone herself writing Leo’s character. He is everything. He is a broken character that I was absolutely hooked to. The story was such an emotional roller coaster, I felt both Leo’s and Hayley pain and emotions. We get to see more inside these two . The story is everything I was expecting and more . It was intriguing, captivating and quite intense. Cant get enough of Leo and Hayley. Definitely a must read.
Hidden Beauty is a palpable continuation of a powerfully emotional and titillating story that has captivated me from the start since reading Secret Beast. I thought the ending to that book left me stunned, Hidden Beauty gave me palpitations and I don’t know what to do with myself while waiting for Fallen Rose. Amelia Wilde your way with words completely enthralls me over and over again. You are so adept at weaving an engrossing and entertaining story! This series is packed with deeper layers while incorporating sizzling scenes between Leo and Hayley.
