1) Having the highest rank in a dominance hierarchy
2) The most powerful man in a group
3) Liam Black
He was a stranger to me, a dark and dangerous presence who materialized from the shadows one rainy night to save me from a vicious attack. I didn’t know his name or where he was from. All I knew was that the only place I’d ever felt safe was in his arms.
But safety is an illusion.
And not every savior is a hero.
And—as I’d soon find out—having an alpha save your life comes with a price.
Liam Black wanted something from me in return.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
Beautifully Cruel is the first book I've picked up for J.T. Geissinger in a good while and wow. I mean WOW! The chemistry between Tru and Liam was dynamic from the very start and didn't let up one bit.
I loved Tru. She was bold and determined. Strong willed and fearless. She wasn't going to let anyone tell her who or what she could be. No matter how smokin' hot or broody he was. And was Liam all those things and a whole lot more. WHEW! That man is the definition of alpha with his suits and tattoos and deep stares.
There was no denying the passion between them but it also ran deeper. When everyone was telling her to be afraid, she wasn't. She saw past his bravado to the man that just wanted something good to hold on to. To believe in. And in turn, Liam gave her freedom to be herself and pursue her dream. They had so much in common it was almost eerie but at the same time it showed just how well suited they were for one another.
The whole time Tru and Liam were together, she could sense there was something else happening. But even with the little nuggets dropped here and there it wasn't enough for her to put the pieces together. Until...holy unexpected twisty twist!
J.T. Geissinger completely shocked and awed me with how intricately woven and deep the secret Liam was keeping ran. When all was revealed my jaw was on the floor and my heart was leaping with joy. And that ending was just the right amount of sweet and romantic that both Liam and Tru so deserved.
