By Sara Cate
Release Date: June 9th 2020
This morning I woke up to a beautiful email stating that the ARC (advanced readers copy) of Beautiful Monster was available to us from Sara Cate!! Let me tell you, after the night at the puppy ER with one of my dogs, who is now feeling better, I needed a book to sink into. I downloaded it at fast as my internet would allow and opened my kindle, and I am not joking when I say that I literally just read this book in a DAY!! I could not put it down!!!!!
Alexander Caldwell is hot, rich, and trying to change his partying ways. He buys a house in the suburbs, complete with pool, pool house and three single women that are his “backyard” neighbors. Alex knows he needs to settle down, change his image, however it’s her, out of the three women, that he wants. He absolutely cannot get involved with a teenager, can he, with his past?
Sunny Thorn is a beautiful, untouched, artist with a tortured home life. When Alexander spots her artistic talents, he pays her to paint a mural in his pool house. This will give her the money she needs to leave her mother’s house and be on her own. Sunny knows that this man is too old for her, or is he? His presence is always there around her as she works and in her daydreams.
When Sunny’s world becomes full of opportunities, does he let her go?? Can he let her go without him??
This is an age-gap forbidden romance that is angsty, steamy and totally captured my heart strings. I usually do not really feel tugs at my heart but dammit Sara Cate got me with this one. This book had me on an emotional roller coaster, right along with Alexander and Sunny. My heart literally felt like it was being clenched by an unseen force during many parts in this book.
This is the first book I have read of Sara Cate’s and I think I may have a slight crush on her writing. When someone like me, who is not comfy with emotions, can feel these characters, that says so much about the author, characters, writing style, and book.
I don’t like giving away too much, I will say that if you have triggers, please know that this book contains an age-gap, forbidden romances, family issues, and some rough sex
