This story is told in present day as well as flashbacks which I LOVED. It certainly painted the whole picture of the frenemies love madness. You see how they got to where they are at. The circumstances that brought them together and man when they were together, they were TOGETHER. Courtney and Max being in the same room creates instant sexual tension that leaves you needing to seriously fan yourself.
Max Adorite was born into a family of the criminal underworld. He is currently the under boss of the whole empire, donning the name “Southern Boy Mafia”. At only 27 years old he was the second most powerful man in the organization. He is certainly a badboy who is wealthy, extremely gorgeous and very sure of any decision he makes. He never lets anyone in, but someone caught his eye. Someone he can’t let go of that is on the other side of the playing field in the game he is in. But true attraction can’t be ignored, even if Courtney Kogan was exactly who he shouldn’t want.
Courtney Kogan is labeled as one of the good guys. Working for her father’s company she gathers Intel for Sniper 1 Security. The girl has more sass then most men could handle, determined like a bull and always packin!Read more ›
You have Courtney who comes from the "good guys" and Max who comes from the "bad guys". They've loved each other for years but tried to fight it because "it wasn't right". They go through hell and back together. The title of the book is perfect, they are "Beautifully Brutal".
You get all in this book.......anger, hurt, love, happiness, suspense, murder, and hot sex!!
I truly believe love is love and a line from the book "Dad you've always told me that sometimes we had to do things that didn't make sense to everyone else". This statement is so very true!
You can read this as a standalone BUT I highly recommend you read Wait For Morning first. Well done Nicole!!!
In Max and Courtney's story it all comes down to choosing between love or family. He's a bad boy, she's a good girl.....her job was to gain information on him. Placing herself that close to the enemy put her in great danger. When all is said and done, the outcome is Beautifully Brutal!!
However…… I absolutely love and adore Max and Courtney! They are the perfect couple! They challenge each other constantly and it is entertaining to say the least! Max and Courtney are extremely strong willed and drive their respective families (each family on a different side of the law) crazy!
As tragedy strike, all heck break lose and each family must close rank to protect the members of their family. To make things a tad more interesting, a member of Courtney’s family has betrayed and exploited her in the worst way! Max discovers he’s been used and abused by someone in his family as well and worse….someone will DIE!
Beautifully Brutal is part of a series but can be read as a stand-alone. BB ends very well and nothing is left to interpretation…..
