MY BEAUTIFUL POISON BLURB I forgave him for the lies he told. And I forgave him for breaking my body with his touch. But I couldn’t forgive myself for staying. Until I met you… my antidote. I knew I couldn’t keep forgiving him, when I could be safe in your arms. With your touch, there were no tears. With your kisses, I could finally breathe. You might be the villain in everyone’s story… But not mine.

My review of My Beautiful Poison
The bad boy is a good guy!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌏🌍🌎🌏
Character development: 👤👤👤👤👤
The Hero(s): August – just got out of jail for a crime where he was set up by his boss for wanting to get out of the crime business. His boss Josh is one of the biggest drug dealers in the city, lives with August’s alcoholic mom and used August from a young age to do everything from running drugs to collecting debts.
The heroine: Rylee – a rich girl from the other side of the tracks, she knew August in high school though he was a few years older and all the girls had crushes on him. Rylee is trying to break up with her abusive boyfriend Anderson, but neither he nor her mother will accept that it is over and keep pressuring her to marry him.
The Love Story: August sees Rylee as better than him and doesn’t want to bring her down, though they are very attracted to each other. They keep ending up together and can’t force back the desire.
August determines that they should stay away from each other but Rylee sees that he needs a friend. So she is determined to be a friend to him though she wants more. The chemistry between these two is through the roof and the romance is so hot!
I also enjoyed all the supporting characters. Anderson is the perfect jerk ex-boyfriend who treated Rylee wrong, she also has an identical twin Rhianna who is dating Noah, August’s friend and lawyer. August has a younger sister Paige that he is close to and Paige happens to be dating Rylee’s younger brother Beckham. The character development and world building are terrific.
The romance takes precedence over other storylines. Meaning it is more about how other stories affect the relationship than having intense storylines outside the relationship. And it has all the feels. I just loved it and the ending was so good as well, though it was a cliffhanger. I can’t wait to read the next book.
I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
