Hate Story Duet #1
Author: Mary Catherine Gebhard
Genre: Romantic
Suspense/Dark Romance
Release Date: March 14, 2017


Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.

I thought selling myself to a mafia boss was noble. So what if they called him the Beast? I grew up in rags, and he would lift me to riches. All I had to do was give him my soul.

He was punishing. Insatiable. Captivating. Nothing like I expected him to be. Each day my reality blurred, leaving me wondering if I was slave or princess.

The longer I stayed, the more I lost myself to him. Even after every cruelty the Beast visited upon me, I longed for his touch. Even after every savage word he spoke, I begged for his lips. I thought the worst thing he could take was my body. I was too naïve to guard my heart.

Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.

Now I know better than to speak of happily ever afters.

Beast is the first book in the Hate Story duet. About what it means to fall in love with the person who has absolutely destroyed you, it contains disturbing and graphic situations that may be a trigger for some.

Gemma’s Review
5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Beast was deliciously dark read that really put me on an emotional roller coaster. This is not your average love story between two characters; this is a dark and twisted story that will live you hanging at the edge of your seat all the way through the story. This is definitely the type of book I love to read because it stays with you long after you finished reading it.

Frankie was a brave character that gave herself to Beast for her father’s life. She was smart and had a painful past that really helped me to understand the emotions and thoughts that she had during the story.

Beast is a gorgeous and sexy character that has a completely dark side to him. He is one of them characters in a book that you know you shouldn’t love but cant help but love him. He was a complex character that I can’t wait to read more about in the next book.

Frankie believes in fairy tales and the tale of love being one of the biggest types of fair tales. She believed that giving herself to The Beast was the right thing to do and she would leave behind her poor life. But life is never that easy and Frankie soon realises that life isn’t a fairy tale.

This is the first story that I have read by the author Mary Catherine Gebhard and it will not be my last because this book took over my life. I couldn’t put it down because I was enchanted by this story so much. I loved the detail that the author had written in the story and the character building that was given throughout. I’m anxiously waiting for the second part of this story and cant wait to find out what happens next.
