Editorial Reviews


"A lush and sensual fairy tale retelling! I rooted for the strong beauty even as I fell in love with the mafia beast." Skye Warren, New York Times best selling author

"Beast is deliciously dark, powerful, the setting evocative of the castle and library where Beast and Frankie spend most of their time...FIVE STARS. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. CAN'T WAIT FOR BOOK 2!" Ilsa Madden-Mills, Wall Street Journal best selling author

"Any author that can jumble my mind and my emotions like this one did, deserves a standing ovation...I loved it. I loved everything about the plot, the characters, the writing style." Ellie, Love N. Books

"Beast is a novel that will break you in the best way possible." London Miller, author of the Volkov Bratva Series

"Beauty and the Beast meets the Italian Mob in a tale of survival, acceptance and love." White Hot Reads 

"Let me start by saying that I have read a LOT of dark romance from some of the most notable Queens of the genre out there!!! Regardless, Beast: A Hate Story, The Beginning has climbed its way into the top of my list of dark romances.  Period!
A Naughty Girl's Novel World Book Blog

"I am left speechless, this book isn't a hearts and flowers kind of read, it's a very very dark and ugly story. But I loved each moment." Amanda, Disheveled Book Blog

"It was addictive and I totally fell for it. The ending??? Best ever." Aaly and the Books

"This book was a rollercoaster, from one sentence to the next and as the reader, you were able to experience ALL the highs and lows, as if you were in the story itself! 5 stars for a book that still takes up space in my mind....long after I read it." Georgie Goodreads reviewer 

"The emotional truths it is going to mine though are worthy of any epic love story." Diane, 1 Click Addict Support Group

"There is no real way to categorize this book. There are some key words I'd use to though to help describe it. Like-dark, anti-hero, mafia/organized crime, page-turner, gripping, and WOW!" Chanpreet, Goodreads reviewer

"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." Sonal, Beneath The Covers Blog

"Beast is by far the best of 2017!" Carrie, Goodreads reviewer
