Hate Story Duet #1
Author: Mary Catherine Gebhard
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Dark Romance
Release Date: March 14, 2017
Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.I thought selling myself to a mafia boss was noble. So what if they called him the Beast? I grew up in rags, and he would lift me to riches. All I had to do was give him my soul.
He was punishing. Insatiable. Captivating. Nothing like I expected him to be. Each day my reality blurred, leaving me wondering if I was slave or princess.
The longer I stayed, the more I lost myself to him. Even after every cruelty the Beast visited upon me, I longed for his touch. Even after every savage word he spoke, I begged for his lips. I thought the worst thing he could take was my body. I was too naïve to guard my heart.
Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.
Now I know better than to speak of happily ever afters.
Beast is the first book in the Hate Story duet. About what it means to fall in love with the person who has absolutely destroyed you, it contains disturbing and graphic situations that may be a trigger for some.
Review by Paula:
Frankie exchanged her life for her fathers. Frankie meets the Beast a man who loves to control Frankie not just her body but wants her soul and everything that is her. Beast is exactly that a Beast a man with no emotions is a blank slate until Frankie gets under his skin but still doesn’t show it. Lots of mafia talk but I like how the author did Frankie and Beast point of views so we knew what they were feeling at the time. The ending is a totally shock and will keep you thinking and wanting more! Very intense turn the page to read what happens next story! 4 Stars
