Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Twisted Fairytale/Dark Romance
Author: Amelia Wilde
A wicked, but heartfelt finale to this dark twist of Beauty and the Beast.
I loved this whole twisted tale of Leo Morelli and Haley Constantine. Their love was unconventional, seemed impossible, and certainly defied the odds, but doesn’t that make the best stories at the end of the day? The over resounding answer to that is YES!
Leo is known as the Beast of Bishop’s Landing, but Haley is one of the few who truly sees the man behind the beast. A man consumed by pain and anger who protects those behind the scenes to keep up his beastly mask, but as we come to learn Haley not only receives that protection up front, but she accepts both the beast and the man which is all he’s ever looked for his entire life. He will do anything to keep her safe, even if it means letting her go.
Haley is all in and wants to be with Leo, which should be perfect, the complication comes in with the Constantine family. They will never allow her to be with a Morelli no matter how much Leo and Haley want to be together. She wants to be with Leo, but could it do more damage staying together?
The entire story is heartbreaking, because anyone familiar with the Beauty and the Beast tale knows that the Beast is really a good guy under all of his blustering and has to let his Belle go even though he loves her and everyone within Belle’s world believes the Beast is so horrible and no matter how much she has grown to love him no one will believe he isn’t an awful person.
Amelia took all of the wonderful things I loved about the classic tale along with all the wicked things I love about dark romance and mashed them together. It truly has been the best of both worlds and loved reading every page.
Leo Morelli has lost everything.
His safety. His sanity. But worse than that, the woman he loves. He will destroy Bishop’s Landing to get her back, even if it means becoming the monster she fears.
The entire city will feel his wrath.
Haley Constantine loves her beast, but she can’t walk away from her family. They need her now more than ever. It will take more than violence to face these enemies. It will take sacrifice.
Can she give up the man she loves to save him?
