Holy WOW.. Book of the year.. Hands down!!
Domestic Violence is such predominant problem in our society, no mattention what country you live in and HJ Bellus has approached it with sensitivity and class, but at the same time she has held nothing back. She has really proved she has a true talent with the written word. I have loved all of her books so far, but this is my 2016 Book Of The Year.. Hands down.
Chloe married Satan himself. There is no other way to describe him. I certainly would by no stretch call him a man.
Kip has a boatload of demons and has no idea when he meets Chloe for the first time that she is his saviour.
These two seriously are a beautifully stunning healing couple. It quickly becomes clear that together there is nothing they can't do.
There is a huge twist towards the end and a whole lot of emotion along the way. I will admit I needed tissues more than once reading Chloe story and even some of Kips moments had me in tears.
They have a long road to travel to reach their happen ending and trust me when I say that road is full of triumph and tragedy. They do however have a group of their own self made family to get them through and push them towards their future.
I seriously cannot say enough great things about this book it is just amazing.
If you can handle characters that have suffered through the darker side of life and are battling to shine through on the other side then you definitely want to one click this one!
I would highly recommend this book to everyone!

OMG!!! This story left me breathless and speechless. I absolutely loved Dirty and Filthy. So I knew I would love Scandal as well. But nothing prepared me for the emotional ride that this story took me on. Chloe’s story is gut-wrenching. So much emotion pouring off the pages. I cried throughout this book. Her journey is just incredible. Kip is amazing. Such a great character. He has had his share of hurt and sorrow. The connection between these two is phenomenal. The story flowed effortlessly and kept me addicted till the last word. There was a surprise character that I hope gets a story (hint hint). If you read Dirty and Filthy, you know that Zane, Ava, Rhett, and Darby are hilarious. There were several times I laughed till I cried, and I have to admit that one of them made me spit my drink out. I loved that the humor was present in this story to somewhat offset some of the drama. So much love for this book!
Review by: Gina
I adore this series and Scandal was AMAZING! This book took on a more serious tone compared to the first two books in the series. It was so much more emotional because it deals with domestic violence and that is present through out the book. This story was fantastic! Kip and Chloe are two incredibly strong characters. I loved reading about them overcoming their past demons and being able to look towards the future.
I thought the story was well written and again, I loved the storyline. So much emotion from beginning to the end. We are introduced to a new character so...maybe...we will get another book. Wink Wink
While this book was more serious, I did miss some of the humor that was present in the previous books. Maybe it would have been hard to fit it in, but I just missed that HJ Bellus humor.
Overall, I loved the book! It was a fantastic read from beginning to end. Its full of drama, suspense and most of all love! All the books in the series can be read as a standalone, as each book focuses on one couple but all the book are so amazing, you need to read them all!
