I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Sometimes love isnÔÇÖt beautiful... Sometimes the only way to describe it is beautifully brutal.
If you think you know himÔÇª YouÔÇÖre wrong.
If you think you know his familyÔÇª Wrong again.
If you think you know his storyÔÇª You donÔÇÖt.
If you did, youÔÇÖd likely wonder how the hell a man like Maximillian Adorite managed to make it to this point in his life. At twenty-nine, heÔÇÖs experienced more than most people could only ever imagine, all thanks to his family. Organized crime they call it. Mafia.
No matter how they spin it, it comes down to one thing. Max gets what he wants. Except for the one thing he wants most.
Her name is Courtney Kogan.
And now that heÔÇÖs had a taste of her, Max knows heÔÇÖll never be able to let her go.
The Southern Boy Mafia series is a spinoff from the Sniper 1 Security series. It has been set up to be read without reading Sniper 1 Security, however, the characters will frequently cross over.
Good vs Evil. How many bad deeps does some have to commit to be unredeemable? Can a killer, a bad person find love and solace? Can good and evil coexist in the same universe?
Nicole Edwards ÔÇ£Beautifully BrutalÔÇØ is the story of Courtney and MaxÔÇöGood and Evil. They are two sides of the same coin. While Courtney works for her family company, Sniper One Security, and it basically one of the good guys fighting the bad guys, Max is on the other side of the line. HeÔÇÖs the new boss of the so-called Southern Boy Mafia and he is not a good guy. Can the two find common ground and happiness, without losing each other, their family, and themselves in the process?
I loved this story! The relationship between Max and Courtney is volatile, passionate, heartbreaking, and beautifully brutal. TheyÔÇÖre back and forth, even though I would have loved to slap them both at times, was very well conveyed. Their inner struggle and conflict with their feelings was not only messy and frustrating, but also understandable. The two of them went through their own struggles, but came out stronger for it.
This is one beautiful story, or as Nicole Edwards herself calls it, Beautifully Brutal. I thoroughly enjoyed it and cannot wait to read more of the Southern Boy Mafia.
