SECRET BEAST by Amelia Wilde
Release Date: February 23rd
Vengeful family secrets out for revenge
Bishop’s Landing, home to Haley Constantine on her way home from college where she is one semester away from graduating with a degree in literature. Home is where her brother, Cash, and her father, Phillip, an inventor, live as well. Her father just secured an investor for his energy project… The Morellis. Most notably one Leo Morelli, also known as the Beast of Bishop’s Landing.
The Constantine’s believe that the Morellis are evil, It becomes evident early on that there are darker secrets behind the reason that the Morellis should, and do, hate the Constantine’s vice the other way around.
The Morellis… powerful, determined, and more importantly, they hate the Constantine’s. The Constantine’s are one of the well to do families in the area, however they’ve always felt that Haley’s father was a disgrace, an embarrassment, and barely a Constantine because they do not care about flashy things nor real estate.
Haley runs to Leo to get him to back away from her father’s contract. But, nothing is ever given freely. Contract signed, freedom and free will gone… They more humiliating acts he has her do or does himself to her, the more his secret comes to light.
I found this to be very fast-paced along with the enemies to lovers concept with a spin and dash of a beauty and the beast element, sprinkled with sadism and masochism between the cracks as well that lead into a cliffhanger towards Hidden Beauty.
I feel like there was also a lot going on outside of the two main characters as well. So much so that I could easily see spinoffs happening with those characters, not just Ronan’s love story that is teased at the end, but siblings’.
