Brutally Beautiful by Christine Zolendz

A deadly game of hide and seek.

With blood still on her hands, Samantha Matthews is on the run, running from dark secrets and a man she prays to God will never find her. Running and hiding, just to stay alive. She had no choice but to run, to leave, to hide and forget about her life before. When Samantha believes she's gained enough distance from her past and her demons, she stops running, hoping to find her future in the heavily wooded area of the Adirondack Mountains, a place she never expected to encounter a man with secrets as dark and as sordid as hers.
Kade Grayson is hiding, not from the demons after him, but from himself and from the entire outside world, wishing every day he could have just died. Arrogant and domineering, he's tormented and terrorized by his past, seeing nothing good for his future. With the ghosts of his past still haunting him, he has exiled himself to a life of solitude, only living for his words and through his stories.
Until her.
An undeniable attraction, turns into hate and then ultimately obsession, an obsession that grows into a powerful story of love and redemption.
Will the bond they have begun to build between them grow stronger than the tragedies that have scarred both of their lives? Or will they allow their demons to consume them?
This book is a full length Adult Contemporary Romance and is intended for mature audiences due to strong language and sexual content.

4.5 stars!!!! Christine is phenominal! I have loved every single one of her books. This one is so different than the others. This one is dark, gritty, bloody and sexy! She can write sexual tension better than anyone I have ever read! Awesome book!

Loved this book. Dark, sexy, mysterious story with interesting characters. Kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what was gonna happen. Will definitely read the next book. Well written. FYI and * * * POSSIBLE SPOILER * * * Don't remember if their is a warning for this book or not, but one character talks about a horrible incident from his past involving a high school massacre. I was fine reading it but others certainly may not be.

Sam and Kade's book was at times a dark read that was very intriguing and I found myself engrossed in it.  Both characters had horrible damage done to them by others and they were trying to find their way out of their darkness.  It was a really good read and I will definitely read the next book in the series.

Honestly, I can't think of anything that I didn't love about this book. It is full of action, mystery, humor and sexiness. It is so not the same tired story, repackaged with garnish added. The story is fresh. The writing style is mondo magnifico. I was supremely entertained the entire time. The characters are very well-developed, and the two main characters have riveting backgrounds. I don't want to say anymore about that because you are suppose to not know and learn their past while reading. I adore both of the main characters personalities.

The story is written like fanfiction and the love interest is a creepy stalker that we are supposed to accept because he has issues. To top it off, the plot is boring and predictable. I do not recommended buying this book.

This is not your typical flowers and heart romance. This book is AMAZING and not for the timid at heart. The story of Samantha and Kade is dark, gripping, and intense. This is my reread... gret books. LOVETOREAD
