Pretty Nightmare; Creeping Beauty #2
(#2 in a series)
by: J.A. Huss
Plot twists, jaw dropping turns, and sweltering panty-dropping moments! Pretty Nightmare is the book you’ve been waiting for!
J.A. Huss doesn’t leave a stone unturned in the return to the Creeping Beautiful world. When we left Indie, McKay, Adam, and Donovan we had just come to know not only how the young girl was raised by the three men, but also how she fell in love with the boy next door and how that all went wrong.
We pick up where Creeping Beautiful left off and much like that story, Pretty Nightmare weaves us back and forth through different years and different POV’s. I have loved reading in this format for not only building the tension and suspense, but it also was like watching a magic show…the illusionist effect of look over here while I’m doing something over here…so in essence, is the character POV you are reading the truth? Everyone has grown up in The Company, was born and breed from The Company and even though they tried to break away from it, are there still genetically dispositioned traits that never go away? There are so many mind blowing moments this book was unputadownable!
Without giving too much away this review will stay short and sweet, because the plot is all interconnected to each character and each twist, so I’m just going to say if you loved Creeping Beautiful you will love Pretty Nightmare! I would also not recommend reading this book as a standalone as it goes hand-in-hand with Creeping Beautiful.
I have them all now. Just the way I want them.
McKay, the one who loves me deepest.
Adam, the one who protects me fiercely.
Donovan, the one who tells the truth.
They are my friends, they are my lovers, they are my world.
And Maggie belongs to all of us—no matter who her father is.
This is the family I’ve always wanted.
This is the family I deserve.
And I will do whatever it takes to keep them.
I have a secret that could ruin everything.
But I’m not keeping that secret to hurt her.
Nathan St. James needed to go.
I made a plan that could ruin everything.
But I did it to save us in the end.
The Company needed to come back.
I told a lie that could ruin everything.
But I didn’t tell the lie to them—I told it to myself.
Carter is closer than we think.
There is something truly wrong at Boucher House on the Old Pearl River.
Some hidden evil lurking deep inside the woods.
Nothing about their blissful life is what it seems.
Because just when they think they have it all—he shows up to take it back.
