I was given this book in turn for an honest review.
Beau and Declan Reede come face to face in a mission to find Phoebe. Will they solve the puzzle in time or will their task be futile and leave devastation in its wake?
Once again Michelle Irwin has delivered an outstanding epic story in the Phoebe Reede series. Another book that I devoured in a short space of time and struggled to put down when my body was craving sleep. This story will pull you in, enthral you into the life of Beau and Declan as they search and fight for Phoebe. A search that proves to break their hearts and one that broke mine too. Beastly isn’t sweet, beautiful and romantic; it’s devastating, heart-breaking, distressing and holds you captive into a world of the unknown. With each passing chapter, you find hope slipping through your fingers and the tears fall as you beg for their search to bring them the break they need.
Words cannot truly express how amazing and wonderful this story is. How Michelle Irwin hasn’t been afraid to step into the dark and bring us this heart wrenching story. Beastly may not be a sweet romantic addition to the series as some may have hoped, however it cannot be denied how wonderfully creative and enthralling this book is. That it shows us life isn’t always an easy and simple romantic adventure.
I both loved and loathed this story in equal measure. Loathed because the people I loved in this book were hurting and life was being the hardest it had ever been on them and loved because Michelle wrote this story with taste, passion and meaning. The storyline is neither pointless or meaningless. It hasn’t been written just because, it has been written as it worked and it fitted the path for the characters.
You will need to read this series in order starting with book #1 Phase. This series is for contemporary romance, suspense and readers.
