They call him Beast because he fights and f*cks like one. Because he’s built like the tanks he rode in Afghanistan.
Beneath Conrad "Beast" Beeston III’s fierce, intense gaze, his brooding temperament, his knuckles scarred from fighting, lurks a wild man, his strong, broad back darkly inked with his own hard truths.
He only has one mode, and “Beast” is it. He ripped through Tilly's life, tearing it to shreds, and then he was gone, giving a stiff middle finger to a life of entitlement. He left her like he leaves them all—with little more than a broken heart. But for Tilly, there was one more thing.
He left her with an unbearable secret she’s been forced to keep for years.
Tilly’s privileged life, after her recent graduation from Mt. Holyoke, has come to a screeching halt under tragic circumstances. Had she really believed she’d never see her Devil Dog stepbrother again?
Now he’s coming home—and she’s forced to face his cocky smirk and arrogant swagger, to look once again into the eyes of the monster who left her.
Forced to confront him, what she sees is a raw, broken, tortured man who just might be the only person she knows keeping even bigger secrets than she is.
This is my first stepbrother book and at first I wasn’t sure I would be interested but the author has a way is getting the reader into the story quickly and before I knew it I had finished the book. Beast 's character was not my usual hero character and it took longer for me to get into him. When his layers started falling away I saw someone who was much more then the fighting machine.
Tilly had a secret and throughout the book you get glimpses of what it could be but I love how the author opened up this area and exposed it with all the facets from everyone's point of view at the end.
This book is for people who understand that life is messy and not always what it seems. It's for people who understand that not everyone's fairytale ending is perfect but a little different and still no less rewarding or loving. I give this 4 STARS.
