Fatal Beauty, or Just Hard to Read?

Posted on Updated on

I recently received an e-galley for review from Netgalley of Fatal Beauty by Nazarea Andrews.

I was so excited by the following description:

New Orleans. Memphis. Vegas.

Beautiful girls who know just how to get exactly what they want.

It’s all fun and games, sexy nights and wild parties.

But you can only manipulate your way out of so much, and the body count is rising. When their past catches up, not even a pretty smile will get them out of trouble this time.

I was further excited by the gorgeous cover:

My excitement, much like the reports of Mark Twain’s death, was greatly exaggerated.

This novel is one that is written to shock readers, and it didn’t do a very good job of that. There is murder, drugs, and a lot of sex. But unless you’re in the mood for a lot of sex scenes, I do not recommend this book. Personally, I could not even finish the book.

WHAT, Bambi?! Our eyes are goggling with disbelief.

Don’t let the gorgeous cover fool you. This book had definite promise and possibility, but unfortunately, did not deliver.

return to sender

So I recommend adding to the bulk of mail our mailman above is holding (on his ill-advised rollerblades), by returning this book to sender. Or, you know, never buying it in the first place.
