Charlotte was a good girl.
Sweet and innocent, a debutante with her Daddy’s credit card and a fiancée who doted on her.
She was destined for a perfect picture life in Charleston.
Until everything goes wrong.
EJ grew up with everything she could ever want, and bored as hell.
Nothing surprises her and nothing ever changes, and she wants out—whatever it takes.
Getting involved with Anthony Jacobs is probably the worst idea she’s ever had—and that makes it irresistible.
Until Charlie needs her.
New Orleans. Memphis. Vegas.
Beautiful girls who know just how to get exactly what they want.
It’s all fun and games, sexy nights and wild parties.
But you can only manipulate your way out of so much, and the body count is rising. When their past catches up, not even a pretty smile will get them out of trouble this time.
I’ve read quite a few books by Nazarea so far, spanning over various genres and styles. Post apocalyptic, sci fi, fantasy… there’s usually a certain amount of sexual heat to her stories, but nothing could have prepared me for this. Wow. This is a completely different book from all the others. In fact, if I were to read this book without knowing the author, there would be zero chance of me guessing. I mean this in the best possible way. While I have really enjoyed her previous books, it gives me a ridiculous amount of pleasure to see an author extend herself, to try something new, to test boundaries.
And, boy, does this book test those boundaries. Right off the bat, I had the impression that this book was a little bit like Thelma & Louise, in that there are these two friends who become entwined in an accidental crime, and end up on the run. That is where the similarities end. With that movie in mind, I want you to now pretend it had been directed by Tarantino. Fatal Beauty is a very erotic book, with graphic sex scenes, drug and alcohol use, and violence. If you’re even a little bit of a prude, move along. This book is not for you. BUT… if you’re in the mood for a dark and steamy read, this will satisfy entirely.
The book starts off with Charlie being interrogated by a police officer, so right away my mind is trying to figure out where things go sour. It’s definitely not a predictable book! I had no clue what was going to happen next, and that’s exactly how I like it. It wasn’t until very near the end that I really started putting all the pieces together.
It was definitely a cathartic read. I was so emotionally drained by the end of it, I had to go cleanse myself by reading something light and fluffy. I won’t tell you how it ends, except by saying they don’t drive off a cliff together, hand in hand. You won’t be disappointed.
Nazarea Andrews (N to almost everyone) is an avid reader and tends to write the stories she wants to read. Which means she writes everything from zombies and dystopia to contemporary love stories. When not writing, she can most often be found driving her kids to practice and burning dinner while she reads, or binging watching TV shows on Netflix. N loves chocolate, wine, and coffee almost as much as she loves books, but not quite as much as she loves her kids. She lives in south Georgia with her husband, daughters, spoiled cat and overgrown dog. She is the author of World Without End series, Neverland Found, Edge of the Falls, and The University of Branton Series. Stop by her twitter (@NazareaAndrews) and tell her what fantastic book she should read next.
