My mind is full of Beast right now!! *wink wink*

Frankie thought she was doing a great sacrifice by offering herself instead of her father’s life. That is where she went wrong. Her naivety becomes her downfall. Now she is trapped with a Beast who is hell bent on destroying every little part of her.


Why did no one warn me that this book was going to take over my life? I am so obsessed with this story and the characters. The twists and turns, the brutality and the whole psychological fuckery made me fall in love with Beast and Frankie.

Not many people can make you love the twisted mofo of the story but MCG made you fucking adore him and not even think twice about it. I am freaking mad about this whole story and when i say it’ll stay with me forever I mean F.O.R.E.V.E.R.!!! Also, man I’m gonna devour every book my MCG and then I’m gonna follow her around like a lost puppy asking her to love me.

5 Stars!

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.
