Betraying the Beast (Once Upon a Heartbreak) by Cam Johns – My Review

Title: Betraying the Beast (Once Upon a Heartbreak)

Author: Cam Johns

Release Date: June 15th 2021

Genre: Romance Anthologies 

Vengeance becomes my solace…absolution is earned through love.

The Benoit Family has become synonymous with death. Losing three members in three years has taken its toll, imbedding the root of anger with the first, my grandfather. I could never get his cold, dead eyes out of my head. His death stare has been so prominently burned into my subconscious that I can barely get through a night’s sleep. The loss of someone so close to me bore an anger that only worsened when not only my mother dies the following year, but also the death, well murder, of my father soon after. The accident. The angst of the unknown propelled me into a darkness of solitude and retaliation.

Until opportunity knocked.

Isabella Ricci, the woman I let get away years before can soon be mine whether she likes it or not. I’m tired of being alone. Being surrounded by death and immoralities of a crime family. Being a mafia prince may have its perks, but the only incentive I need is the girl my grandfather executed a deal for me to marry before his death. I plan to uphold his wishes by any means necessary. Turns out following through can lead me to more truths than I care to find. I just hope she’ll remain by my side as I do what needs to be done.

Betraying the Beast is a twist on one of my favorites! Miss Johns unravels a story of sinful attraction and suspense that will have your pulse racing and will leave you wanting more.

If you’re looking for a thrilling quick and racing hot read, look no further! This book has it all! I give it 5 stars.
