Hate Story Duet #1
Author: Mary Catherine Gebhard
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Dark Romance
Release Date: March 14, 2017


Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.

I thought selling myself to a mafia boss was noble. So what if they called him the Beast? I grew up in rags, and he would lift me to riches. All I had to do was give him my soul.

He was punishing. Insatiable. Captivating. Nothing like I expected him to be. Each day my reality blurred, leaving me wondering if I was slave or princess.

The longer I stayed, the more I lost myself to him. Even after every cruelty the Beast visited upon me, I longed for his touch. Even after every savage word he spoke, I begged for his lips. I thought the worst thing he could take was my body. I was too naïve to guard my heart.

Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.

Now I know better than to speak of happily ever afters.

Beast is the first book in the Hate Story duet. About what it means to fall in love with the person who has absolutely destroyed you, it contains disturbing and graphic situations that may be a trigger for some.


Beast: A Hate Story, The Beginning by Mary Catherine Gebhard is an enchanting and bewitching story that everyone is going to fall in love with. I was hooked from the first page and couldn't stop flipping the pages because I was so absorbed by the story. It owned me.

This was my first book from Mary and let me tell you, it will not be the last. She knows how to captivate the reader and leave them wanting more. I am on pins and needles waiting for the next book to Beast. 

Frankie is a remarkable character. I enjoyed going through this journey with her. She is so fierce and noble for giving herself up for her father. What she walks into with Beast is beyond anything she could've imagined. The secrets that are revealed will shock you.

Beast is a monster of a character. I couldn't help but be drawn to him and instantly love him. He's protective, strong, passionate and completely intoxicating. I found myself loving him and hating him all at the same time. Loved the whirlwind that was Beast.

So if you love a story that pushes the limits, has a great storyline and characters that you'll never forget, you need to get this one. My heart is still on a constant emotional rollercoaster because of the ending. Such an insatiable story.

I give Beast: A Hate Story, The Beginning by Mary Catherine Gebhard 4 out of 5 MIO CUORE STARS.
