Beautifully Brutal (Southern Boy Mafia Book 1) – Nicole Edwards

Sometimes love isn’t beautiful…
Sometimes the only way to describe it is beautifully brutal.

If you think you know him… You’re wrong.
If you think you know his family… Wrong again.
If you think you know his story… You don’t.

If you did, you’d likely wonder how the hell a man like Maximillian Adorite managed to make it to this point in his life. At twenty-nine, he’s 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 he’s had a taste of her, Max knows he’ll never be able to let her go.

Nicole Edwards has pulled me away from the real world today and thrown me knee deep in the Mafia and i have loved every word.
Beautifully Brutal is an insanely captivating story of lovers that have been and lovers who should be.
This is a unconventional love story, its a joining of the darkness within Max’s world, meeting with the goodness and light of Courtney’s world. But as the story develops there are some definite shady grey areas as Courtney and Max’s worlds collide.
I love books that are told in the dual POV’s, i feel i really get the best of both worlds this way, getting inside the minds of the main characters.
Beautifully Brutal switched between the past and present giving us insight on Max and Courtney first interaction and the start of their relationship. Which i feel really allows you to understand Courtney and Max’s beginning as a couple, how they became to be in a relationship in the first place.
I adored the modern day twist on Romeo and Juliet, the twist on the feuding families as it were and i cannot wait to see more of the interactions between the Adorites and the Kogans, the love hate relationship is fantastic.
Im counting down the days until i can get Leyton’s story. These books are sinfully good.
