Adam Boucher, Core McKay, and Donovan Couture have secrets, but they are joined by their past as Untouchables in The Company, and joined to Indie. Adam is on Les Fleurs Island to attend an auction. He wants to make his own team to carry on The Company tradition. He finds a ten-year-old Indie Anna Accorsi. She is a throw away, not valuable to anyone because she is wild, young, and creepy. Adam sees potential. Donovan sees someone to psychoanalyze. McKay can’t walk away even though she has the capability to destroy them. Indie is the perfect addition to their team. What exactly is this group up to? The answer to this question isn’t easy to reveal because – secrets.
Creeping Beautiful is the definition of a WOW story. It is JA Huss at her finest. It is everything I love about this author. It keeps me guessing. The characters are sexy, creepy, mysterious, and loveable. Each chapter is from one of the team’s point of view. The plot is intricate and tight, keeping the focus on the characters, while so much action is happening. There are twists and turns that make me nervous and hold my breath one moment then tie my stomach in knots the next until I start to breathe again. I didn’t have a clue what would happen from one page to the next, but I knew it would be a thrill. From the beginning, I was hooked, following the breadcrumbs that expose the past, the present, and the potential future.
Creeping Beautiful is a suspense-filled adventure. Huss takes us on a trip back to her wicked Company world with a completely new cast of characters, and the return of some old friends and foes. Expect surprises at every turn. I love that Creeping Beautiful has old characters and events from the past sprinkled throughout; shining new and unexpected insight on what you think you know. This doesn’t mean you must read The Company before reading Creeping Beautiful . It is a standalone novel. It is fun visiting this world again with the new and some of the old. There is a satisfying ending with the promise of more in the future. I can’t wait for more. A must read from one of my favorite authors.
This story is going to be an excellent audio. I can't wait to get my copy.
This story has everything I always loved about JA Huss. My favorites of hers have been the Rook and Ronin/Company/321 type stories. This book ties into that world but can totally be read all on its lonesome.
There's a girl. There are 3 guys. She loves them all. They all love her. They all care for her in different ways. But she's not an ordinary girl. And these aren't average guys. They are the Company.
I loved loved loved this book. There are so many secrets and JA Huss is mastermind at secret telling. I kept thinking there couldn't be another surprise, but I was wrong! Right up through the epilogue, she was dropping bombs on me. I cannot wait for more!!
Now I have a lot catching up to do. lol
I have read a lot of her stories and none of them come close to jacking with my head like this one. And you know what? I freaking loved it! I love that I now also have to backtrack and really get to know all of these other 'mentioned' people. My bad, but also my good. More of Julie scrambling my brain. So, win! If you have read all of those books prior to this then you are way ahead of the game.
I have to say that while I mostly get the characters, I am glad there are more books coming so we can dig deeper into them all. And before that time comes I will be reading up on the others.
If you like your books to the point and with a HEA, then move on. But if you like the idea of more depth, more angst and more to the story then you really want this book.
I stayed up until 4 AM (And yes I over slept) to finish CREEPING BEAUTIFUL. I dreamed about it and I woke up thinking about it. AND IT SLAMMED ME!!! I think I know what is going on, but is that truly what's going on? The twists and turns that Huss is known to write has me knotted up. I cannot quit thinking about this book!
Then there is this tree house scene. Whoa.
The EOBS is a chance to see more about the book through Julie Huss's eyes. What she's thinking. It just pulls everything together. This one is phenomenal. I absolutely loved it.
Although this book is a standalone, it's part of a bigger world that I'm positive you will want to jump into if you haven't already. This is an excellent place to start.
What did I just read?
Was it a thriller?
Or something altogether new and difference?
All of the above.
All I know is that when JA Huss announced she was diving back into the world of “The Company”, I was all in. And when she revealed the title, “ Creeping Beautiful”, my imagination started working overtime. When i read it, it was clear that I didn’t even come close.
This is the story of a girl assassin ala Sasha and the men who protect, control, and, ultimately, love her. It’s lush and disturbing and one of JA Huss’ twistiest stories yet. The shifting POVs and timelines are seamlessly executed, keeping the reader off balanced but never confused. Like Meet Me in the Dark, this story has triggered a lot of mixed emotions, leaving me unsettled and haunted.
The only thing I’m sure of is I WANT MORE.

I actually finished this book yesterday and it's taken me until today to try and sort my head so I can write a review and I'll be honest...I'm still kinda in a bubble!!!
That's what Julie does with her books, you never just 'read' them, you experience them, you live with them, you will love them and you will believe them!
Now bare with me here, because I'm still floating!...
You've read the blurb, 3 fellas, 1girl and they've all played a part in her life and believe me when I say, this girls life is anything but normal!
If you have read Julie's previous books, particularly The Company then you will have an idea - if you haven't then you are in for one hell of a ride! But don't worry - it can be read as a standalone, however I like to know everything about everyone so I've read them all, right back to Rook and Ronin! (Which I thoroughly recommend!!..I'm going back for a full reread 🥰)
Anyway, Indie is a company girl (all will be explained!) Who is bought by Adam, who 'trains' Indie, Adam is best friends with McKay who looks after Indie physically, like food, clothes, life in general etc, and then there's Donovan who is a psychiatrist in the making and also an off-the-chart genius, who looks after Indie mentally.
That is the basis of it; the actual storyline...is up to you to find out about! I'm not going to say much about that because I hate spoilers! I like to read the blurb, get the jist and just dive in! And I think that's the best way with Julie's books because no matter what you think is gonna happen - it never ever does!!
She has a way to twist things, which will shock you and amaze you...why would you want to spoil that?!?!
I'm getting side tracked again! 🙄
The book is downright pure brilliance, that is the bottom line! If you are looking for a thrilling, mysterious, sexy and sometimes dark book / series that will have you on the edge of your seat, that will have you so engrossed that you may hope you've got money for a takeaway to feed the kids because there's not a chance your putting the book down! 🤭 That will have characters that you will adore and connect with, and will stay with you long after you've finished reading it and can be read over and over again....
Then this is the book for you!! 😊
That's it, that's all I'm saying about it!!
Five stars will never be enough!
I salute you J.A. Huss - you are a freaking genius!
If you are new to JA Huss, please get reading because this is one hell of a ride on a journey that has been cleverly interwoven with several series and many beloved (and not so beloved) characters. Intertwined and connected with The Company, a deadly, secret organisation, this is a good place to start or an intriguing addition to this amazing world.
Fanflippingtastic, I loved it....my head is in a mess of the very best kind!
Indie Anna Accorsi has been missing for four years, since the fateful night of her 20th birthday. She returns to McKay with no memories of that night and a sketchy description of where she has been. He calls Adam and Donovan to return home, she needs them all.
I mentioned romance above, it is, but not in the traditional sense, even with the knowledge it features four men and one woman.......mwahaha! Dont let that put you off ;-) This book has a timeline of 14 years, the details of which we learn from four of the characters pov, starting when Indie was aged ten. I loved that each character told a specific seperate part of the timeline, which made a complicated story very clear. The fifth person Nathan, the boy next door, although we don't hear from him is integral to the story.
I don't want to give anything away, so if you enjoy a well written, dark, twisted story with depth and detail that will mess with your mind, then this is for you. There is suspense, mystery and so many secrets. The more secrets JA Huss reveals, the more intricately her web of intrigue is weaved!
I was hooked from the first page and I cant wait for what happens next! 5 huge stars
As always, I found myself engrossed in learning about each of these new additions to the world of The Company. Indie, Adam, McKay and Donovan are intense, interesting, multi-faceted and woven into each other with emotional ties that have been years in the making. Intelligent writing which sets a pace that leaves no room at all, for idling around, Creeping Beautiful is a masterpiece of twisted thinking, mystery, emotions and, as is always the case with a book by JA Huss, I could not put it down. With a long term plot in the making, I am going to bask in the joy of knowing that so much more is to come. Bliss!!! 💖💖💖😱💖💖💖
This group of people are Company. Adam purchases Indie, aged 10 at an auction. She's to be his weapon; an assassin. He owns her. McKay trains her, feeds her, cares for her. Donovan's role is to keep her sane. This story is told from all their points of view. Then there's Nathan, the boy next door, a friend.
The story skips between the present and the past, as we learn of events that gradually bring Indie's story up to date.
There's mystery, suspense, the warped view of life being part of the Company. And then there's a twist. It all leaves me wondering what will happen next in their story.
