Bastards and Scapegoats by Coralee June
Y'all. Here we go. Why didn't I know I was going to binge this and then be left dying ro the nest read? I obviously should have known that. But alas, I did not prepare.
This read was great. I loved the slightly taboo scandal and I loved even more the slight mysteries that we uncovered as we read. I definitely got hooked right front he start. Coralee's writing grabs you and doesn't let go once you dive in.
This was another angsty read that I was HERE for. You spend half the book dying to see these two finally combust and the other half trying p piece together the secret that are women in the pages.
I cannot wait for book two. This is another addictive read from the author who shines in an trope she tries her hand at.
The first time I saw Hamilton, he was balls deep in one of the bridesmaids at my mother’s wedding.
He was lethal. Handsome. Cruel. Twisted.
I was drawn to him like fists to glass. We had an angry sort of relationship. There was nothing kind about the broken man that stole my heart and crushed it in his fist. He was all sharp edges. One touch could ruin me. One kiss could end our happy little family.
When my mother married Joseph Beauregard, son of the governor of Connecticut, I never imagined I’d fall in love with my stepfather’s younger brother. I never imagined I’d uncover the truth about his family’s bloody legacy.
Hamilton escaped with scars to his name and a ruined reputation. And now? I wanted out, too. I guess the scandal of our relationship was the least of our family’s problems.
