Please heed the note with warnings on this book. It does contain violence and abuse. It would be hard for anyone sensitive to that to read Beautiful Masterpiece. Madison Harper survived things as a child that are unimaginable. Now she is ready to start her career, and dedicate herself to preventing her horrors from becoming someone else’s. She just needs to defend her PhD. Thesis and then join the trainees at the FBI academy. Her plans are derailed slightly when she learns the man (her father) responsible for her monsters has escaped. She moves up her plans with two FBI agents assigned to protect her. The two agents assigned to Madison are also studies in their own way. One has his own monsters and the other knew her before. These two are also capable and very sexy and Madison finds herself confused with their role in her life. It makes for some intriguing scenes. Beautiful Masterpiece is fast-paced with more than a few twists to surprise us and keep us reading. The most amazing part is how well we are able to see how the innocent suffer in the long run. A serial killer is captured and put away but the ones he kills are not the only victims. Their families are as well. Beautiful Masterpiece is also a psychological study of how child hood affects us all in different ways. Everything is woven in to the tapestry of the story and we are able to detect some parallels. Not everyone responds the same as we learn from the reading. Pick up Beautiful Masterpiece and experience for yourself if you can.

Beautiful Masterpiece by Gen Ryan is the first book in her Thin Red Line series and she absolutely crushed me! It is hard to find words to describe what I felt when reading this book. The writer has created a story that is dark and twisted and at the same time, she has thrown in some romance … It is a story of Maddie and Scott and Liam in the Chaos created by a monster … Scott is the tough boy next door who kicks ass and plays by the book and who saved Maddie when she was a kid … Liam, the beautiful broken Liam … until the end, I hoped that there was a way for him to be saved … My word, the writer has a mind I do not even want to delve into, she sucks you in, she gives you every characters thoughts when she writes from their point of view … she drags you along on a rollercoaster, you scream and you cry and you simply cannot put the book down until you are in the end, until you know, for sure, whether evil laughs in victory or whether the humanity still has a chance … The darkness that lives within us all, the evil that surrounds us … the innocence that is robbed … the sacrifice that is willingly given to protect … I cannot wait to read the next masterpiece!

Beautiful Masterpiece (Thin Red Lines Book 1) by Gen Ryan is the first book in her Thin Red Lines series. This story is a psychological-suspence thriller that will keep you engaged until the very last page. This is my first story by Gen Ryan and I know that I will be going back for more. I love this author attention to details and her writing style. Her characters will leave you sitting on the edge of your seats just waiting to see what is going to happen. I will tell you that this story has some subjects that are dark, sad and could make you angry. You will find yourself connecting to these characters and they will pull you into their world, make you feel like you are right there with them. Find out what happens in this story that will leave you feeling hopeful. Madison Harper has had a nasty childhood which she fights everyday. Needless to say, she is no stranger to monsters. She dreams of working for the FBI putting away monsters like her father. She has a clear path for her plan, finish her PhD and start training classes. What will happen to her plans when her father escapes? Two agents are assigned to protect her but what she gets from them is far more then she could ever imagine. Not everyone can be saved but they will teach her about love, pain, trust and loss. Is it possible that Madison can avoid being her fathers final masterpiece? In my opinion, your past defines who you are today and what you become. This story is no different for Madison and the other characters. Each of the characters in this book have their own pasts and their own struggles of letting the past go. Their pasts are defining them as to who they are today, pushing them to be someone they may or may not be. The one thing that they need to remember is that not everyone can be saved, not everyone can be helped. Some just don't want the help, they like the choices they made. All the characters in this book make this story flow and without one or the other it wouldn't be the same. They each have their own strong qualities but Madison stands out the most of all of them. She is so determined, smart and works hard. I feel bad for her that she has flashbacks about her childhood but she over comes those times and becomes stronger. You will need to read this book in order to find out what happens to these characters. Will Madison be her fathers last quest? This is my first story by Gen Ryan and I loved it. I can't wait to see what else she has for us in this series. Gen is a teacher of forensic psychology by day and by night is frantically typing her stories on her laptop. You will love how this is a fast paced story that will pull you in from the first word. I couldn't put this book down until the last page. It pulls you in their world of suspense. I highly recommend this book as I know you will want to see what happens to Madison.

Gen Ryan's Beautiful Masterpiece is a dark, suspenseful read filled with beautiful writing! This book grabbed my attention on the first page. I loved the entire concept of the book. It was creepy and terrifying, but the romance aspects balanced it out and gave me hope for Maddie. I loved her perseverance to overcome her dark past. I also though Liam really made the work deep and made me think about topics such as redemption. The story line kept me wanting to turn the page. Ryan's book really shows us that our pasts sometimes haunt us, but they don't have to own us. I cannot wait for the sequel to this book. I look forward to seeing more of Maddie and Scott.

It took me about 3 days to read this story, mainly because I HAD to keep putting it down (when life calls lol). It's like a suspense thriller, wrapped in a romance novel, wrapped in a horror story!! It's beautifully written and the characters are so easy to connect with. But, it's not a very long story (I like long stories...). This story will have you on the edge of your seat to the very last page. I'm strongly recommending this book to everyone I know!!!
