I wasnt the one who broke her but I played my part.

She came to us when she was ten. I raised her. I loved her. I taught her how to survive in a world of evil men. But it wasnt enough.


I wasnt the one who saved her but I did my best.

She needed me as much as I needed her. Bought and paid for on the auction block. But not for the reasons you think. She was my

Original and so very compelling!

The first half of this book is told in the form of flashbacks in order to tell the backstory of the main characters, three men that have been part of The Company since birth. The Company is an organization of Powerful families and individuals that will do anything it takes to get what they want. They purchase women to use as breeders, and put their children into assassin training programs then put them out on teams to clean up problems (i.e. kill people that get

Creeping Beautiful is not the kind of book you simply read. You experience it. You live it. This story and these characters will burrow under your skin and embed themselves in your soul and you will welcome it. This is a book that stays with you long after youve finished reading it. Its intense and engaging and thoughtful and absolutely riveting. It is heartbreaking and hopeful all at once. It will you leave you emotionally wrung out and reeling, and so happy for the experience.

ARC received from author.

Where do I even begin with this review? The synopsis leads you into believing its of the RH/menage theme (which is true), but something I generally dislike across most authors except J.A. Huss. I knew that she would take my dislike and turn it into love, because this is what happens every time. She blew it out of the water this time! Pay attention to the suspense label this book has because its no joke. This one is suspenseful!

Creeping Beautiful has been one hell of an awesome ride, I can just imagine how twice of a mind-freaking-blowing the rest of this phenomenal series is going to be!!

OMG, I devoured this fabulous and unique read in less than 24 hours (no kidding). This is another mindbending masterpiece, and the begining of an amazing series that will stay with you for a long time.

An exceptionally well-crafted story, beautifully well-written, with compelling characters, an incredible world-building, and twists

Excited doesn't even start  to qualify my state as I am writing that review.

Do you remember the Company, Sasha, Nick, etc..? In creeping beautiful, we are plunged back into that madening atmosphere of killers, mental manipulation, conditioning, and such. Ah, do I like that universe. 

Told in four points of view, that story kept me completely mesmerized from civer to cover. I definitely can't get enough of the way the author builds her stories, unveiling, revealing little bit by little bit the

Three vastly different Company men and one very dangerous young girl make up an extremely unlikely team of assassins. And they have been keeping some very volatile secrets... from the world... and from each other... 

Indie Anna Accorsi was saved from certain death, but her training under the dark shadow organization known as The Company has turned her brain into... something else. And the only way to ensure she doesn't go from knowingly damaged to off-the-hinges insane is by feeding her
Bravo, my mind is well and truly blown! A Brilliant, Mind-Bending Romantic Suspense! This is one twisted...roller coaster of a book. There are intersecting characters that show up in this spin-off of the company series among a few other characters but this is a completely new series and you DO NOT need to read any of the prior books to understand what is happening. Core McCay raised and trained her, Adam Boucher bought her yet calmed her and Donavan Couture was her protector yet could he be ...more

Holy freaking mind fuck!!! This cover is stunning, gorgeous,BEAUTIFUL, but the words between these pages.....intense, suspenseful, mesmerizing with twists and turns that will have you gasping for breath. Don't think for one minute you have this story figured out because believe me, I was mind-blown page after page with jaw-dropping secrets that began to unravel until the very end where I was left begging for so much more! Now to impatiently wait for Pretty Nightmare to release!

Ummm... wow. My mind is mush right now. This book is definitely not a fairytale... or maybe its the flip side of the coin... Dark secrets? Check! Complicated half-truths and tangled lies? Check, check! Flawed, broken, yet strangely likable characters? Triple check! There isnt much fluff in this one, and if Im being honest, these are the books where I think Julie really hits her stride as an author. Dont get me wrong. I love her lighter ones too.

And we go again. J.A. Huss and that deliciously creative brain of hers has blown me away yet again with Creeping Beautiful. A story wildly intricate, you have to play very close attention to each and every word to truly understand just what has transpired. The way she gives each of her characters their 'time in the sun' so to speak with multiple POVs is utterly brilliant. You don't get lost when you should. You don't get confused when you would otherwise. Instead you are privy to a seemingly ...more

Three hot men, one boy next door, and one white-hot mess of a girl create a ripe garden of possibilities in J.A. Huss Creeping Beautiful. The authors superb scene setting, fantastically tormented characters, and intricately entwined plot make for the most enthralling reading. Just like the intriguing cover, Creeping Beautiful is filled with fabulous symbolism that kept me questioning everything and everyone from the start to the finish.

Holy mind bend! My heart starting skipping a beat half way through..... So what do you remember about the Company? Well forget. Just put it out of your mind except for the shear mind bending that comes with knowing a "little" about them.
Creeping Beautiful takes us on a tale that only JA Huss can tell. We are walking along with people that we "KNOW" aren't quite right. We understand that anyone having anything to do with the "company" is going to be a little left of center.

Creeping Beautiful

Creeping Beautiful is set in the Company world. You DO NOT need to have read the other Company novels to absolutely fall in love with this book but for those of us who have read the Company novels, this is a hugely nostalgic read and it felt like coming home!

Julies writing style is so unique and her talent for dark is unrivalled, truly. Creeping Beautiful is a story that hooks you from page one and does not let go, staying with you far beyond the final words and leaving you

JA Huss Creeping Beautiful

I won't say she's back because she never left, but this is the kind of story, the kind of writing, that had me falling in love with Huss back in 2016.

When she told us The Company was back, I was through the roof with excitement. Seriously, I haven't been as completely lost in a series since reading those book--and it had never happened before it either.

So, The Company. Man.

This is the kind of thing that makes me wish for one day inside the mind of JA Huss. One. Day.
I'd probably be terrified,

I don't want to give anything away, so I'm not going to. What I am going to do is just say like, Oh My Goodness.
This story has everything I always loved about JA Huss. My favorites of hers have been the Rook and Ronin/Company/321 type stories. This book ties into that world but can totally be read all on its lonesome.
There's a girl. There are 3 guys. She loves them all. They all love her. They all care for her in different ways. But she's not an ordinary girl. And these aren't average guys. They

I admit I started reading Huss after the Company, so I dont have previous knowledge of all of these characters. I did read the Misters and Bossy series, that tells me this is going to be one twisted mind blowing ride. Adam, McKay, Donovan, Indie, they all make their way into your heart and its a good

This story is just WOW! It is a suspenseful story to keep you on the edge of your seat until the end kind of story. The main characters are part of The Company that makes assassins. Adam has McKay, who was gotten for him when they were young so Adam would not be alone. Now Adam is looking for a young girl to train.

Have you ever finished a book then immediately sit back thinking your world just turned upside down? That is what happened after reading my first JA Huss book!

Very seldom do I read a book that have characters that electrify me. But Indie and her guys will do that to you.

Indie is a a young woman that is being torn in different directions by 4 different men. Each man touches her mind and soul that the others cannot. Because of the way she is brought up each have a hand in making her who she is,
OMG ! What and intense and riveting read this was! " I was on the seat of my pants the entire time until the end." Omg ! I am still reeling for this book even after reading it.

Talk about complicated characters "well", this one was loaded with them as they were all mysterious and dangerous and all held mind blowing secrets.

I cannot explain how much I loved this story as it was complicated and intriguing and mysterious and one that you knew eventually would turn into one heck of a complex love

I went into this not knowing what to expect... And what I got... Well, holy fucking shit. What a mind fuck... My head was reeling, my mind on overdrive. This was dark, twisted and kept me on the edge of my seat. I have read a few books by this author now and she never ceases to blow me away. Just when I thought I had things figured out for these characters, the author comes swooping in and throws me through a tunnel of twists and turns I didn't see coming.

This was full of angst, emotion, pain.

If you are a fan of JA Huss you are going to LOVE this book. You don't just read a Huss book, you live it, you feel it, you emerge yourself in it. It takes you forever to get over the book hangover. Is it worth it? So worth it!

This is a very dark and twisted book but filled with love and hopefulness as well. You get the light and the dark, the good and the bad. It all has a balance. Which makes this book such an entertaining read.

You won't see the surprises coming. They will just jump right out

JA Huss has penned an erotic, menage romance wrapped up in psychological suspenseful novel. There are so many twists and turns that it's sometimes hard to keep track. Huss plays it beautifully though. She drops enough hints, clues and innuendos to keep you turning the pages because you need to know what would happen next or did you guess the outcome correctly.

Indie Anna Accorsi has nothing but men in her life. Her overseer/owner, Adam Boucher; her trainer, Core McKay; and her pseudo shrink,

Told in the past and present by 4 POVs. This story weaves a path so intense and intricate that I give praise to JA Huss for her expertise in keeping the story straight and flowing

Adam, Donovan and McKay all play a vital role in the life of Indie Anna Accorsi. For a 10 yr old Indie her life has been constantly monitored, recordered and lead into a path that was not conventional. We are lead through 14 yrs of all of the ups and downs of being a Company kid and what is expected.

Creeping Beautiful is an intense, emotional, and skillfully written dark romantic suspense story that captivates you from the cover. The storyline is intriguing, the characters enchanted me and had me reading late into the night. There's suspense, mystery, danger, lies, secrets, consequences, twists, heartbreak, love and so much more.
