“Bitter Beauty: An ADR Short (Fallen Cross Pack Book 5)” by Aliya DalRae - IHIBRP 5-Star Book Review

Two Uncontrollable Forces Of Nature Meet Head On!

The destiny of the Fallen Cross Pack’s Second-in-Command’s life suddenly takes a turn as Butch Montgomery struggles to maintain his position in the pack while tending to his newly found love interest—a beaten-down stay who wants nothing more than to be left alone.

Aliya DalRae writes a paranormal romance balanced by tension and humor as her gentle giant, who is graced with few words and a flaming temper, tries hard to bring a battered and bruised young female wolf-shifter into the pack. But first, by order of his Alpha, Butch must accept the unpredictable, half-unconscious, emaciated runaway into his cherished and pristine new home, nurse her back to health, and convince her that joining the pack is the best decision she can make.

Butch clumsily works his way into Marcella’s heart, at least until he discovers a horrifying situation in the she-wolf’s past that sets his temper ablaze. Now, he’s pledged to seek vengeance on the man who mistreated, hated, and abused the woman he wants to be his mate no matter what the cost.

DalRae sets the stage as two forces of Nature come together in a raging storm of distrust, anger, and lust. The author’s ability to keep her readers hanging on every word as Butch and Marcella come together, only to blow apart again and again, causes much angst in this back and forth exchange between the prospective lovers. Still, one can’t help cheering for this Beauty to finally capture her Beast as they awkwardly bungle their way through their newfound relationship.

Fans of DalRae’s Sweet Vengeance and subsequent Fallen Cross Pack Series’, as well as first-time, stand-alone readers, will find that “Bitter Beauty” is a thoroughly engaging and absorbing read.

I highly recommend this novel for Fantasy and Paranormal Romance lovers ages 17 and up.

Congratulations to the author on this award-winning story! This novel will be permanently featured on my website at under IHIBRP 5 Star Recommended Reads!
