I have them all now. Just the way I want them.

McKay, the one who loves me deepest.

Adam, the one who protects me fiercely.

Donovan, the one who tells the truth.

They are my friends, they are my lovers, they are my world.

And Maggie belongs to all of us—no matter who her father is.

This is the family I’ve always wanted.

This is the family I deserve.

And I will do whatever

I jumped right back in to the lives of Adam, Mckay, Donovan and Indie. They are all such compelling and interesting characters with different backgrounds yet so similar in that they were all raised within the Company. I think what the Company does best is to mess with the minds of children. So these people and the people they know are all a bit crazy.

In this book they are all back together after the 4 years that they were apart from the time the incident occurred on Indie’s 20th bi
Here we go! Indie Anna Accorsi, Core McCay, Adam Boucher and Donavan Couture are all back at Boucher House in book two of this twisted romantic suspense. There are so many secrets, lies and deception your head will spin, leaving you with even more questions. They are Assassins...The Company...and no one can be trusted. Are you ready to fall deeper into the rabbit hole? Will Adam and McCay get closer? Will Indie find more answers to her past and Maggie? Truths will be unleashed but what will be l ...more

OH MY GOSH!! You want to talk about mind f***ery to the nth degree? WHAT A RIDE!
Welcome back to the Company, where nothing is ever as it seems, and everybody is harbouring secrets.
Say hello to the familiar faces, but DO NOT get too cozy with any of them, because, yeah, nothing is ever as it seems.
I love these characters. I really do. All of them have unique voices, differing viewpoints, but all are driven by the same force and centred by the same things. Vague? It’s meant to be. This books is im

If you haven’t read Creeping Beautiful, you should read it and then come back and read Pretty Nightmare. That will tell you what this book will be about.

JA Huss does it again- another twisting, jaw dropping, tangled tale of complex actions and characters. From page one until the end, my brain was working overtime , much like I imagine Donovan’s brain is during an Indie therapy session- as I was trying to grasp the bigger game at play, or hell, who even the players were.

JA delivers on her promises for book 2- we’re back with our core 4 characters trying to figure out how they all fit together and move on from the discoveries in book 1 - which is

My mind is blown away, i was sitting on the edge of my seat reading the last two chapters.
The whole gang is back with more twist and turns, I knew it was going to be amazing and I don’t know why I’m always so surprised 😂 when I’m finished.
Not surprised that it is was amazing, but by how it even surpassed my hopes.
I want to say so much but I won’t ruin this for those that haven’t read it yet, I’m certain you’re all going to love it.

McCay, Adam, Indie, and Donovan are all together now, just the way Indie wants them. And as everything began to play out, I admit to being surprised by some of the secrets that got exposed, and supremely intrigued by absolutely everything.

The reader gets to find out where Indie was when she was missing, why she was gone, and what happened during that time. But, not just with her, with the guys too! And this was my favorite part, because I didn't really like the

No one can ever say that J.A. Huss doesn't love to keep her readers on the edge of their seat. Because here I sit and I'm completely gobsmacked at not only what has been revealed in Pretty Nightmare but the path I had to follow to get there. After Creeping Beautiful (which must be read first for the best experience), I was sure we'd finally take a sharp turn to some sort of normal for Indie and the 3 men who seem to want only the best for her: Adam, McKay and Donovan. And I'm here to say I wasn' ...more

"Because that's what happens when you get to the end of something. It doesn't matter if it's a road or a story, or a goal -
when you get to the end of it you start over. "

Holy crispy crackers 😳

I thought the first book was a total mind trick-
The truth?
It gets more convoluted
The secrets?
The revelations?
They make your worst nightmare look like a walk down sesame street

I'm so not giving any spoilers

I was at about 30%? When something clicked.

5 stars don't do this story justice.

What else can I say other than WOW!!! This book took the previous story and tipped it sideways, backward and upside-down. Shook it out and tossed away the bag. Now it’s covered in more mystery and secrets, even though some have been uncovered and told, more have taken their place.
Julie Huss knows how to write a twisted, crazy story. We all know it too. We all love it, that’s why the ‘rabbit hole’ is so enticing. We want to know more. Need to know everything. T

Plot twists, jaw dropping turns, and sweltering panty-dropping moments! Pretty Nightmare is the book you've been waiting for!

J.A. Huss doesn't leave a stone unturned in the return to the Creeping Beautiful world. When we left Indie, McKay, Adam, and Donovan we had just come to know not only how the young girl was raised by the three men, but also how she fell in love with the boy next door and how that all went wrong.

We pick up where Creeping Beautiful left off and much like that story, Pretty N

Pretty Nightmare is the twisty second installment of J.A. Huss’ Creeping Beautiful series. Not only is it full of twists and turns, but it is totally twisted.

The phrase nothing is as it seems comes to mind while reading Pretty Nightmare. The characters are pretty. The setting is pretty. And yet, they all seem to be living in a nightmare. A nightmare created by The Company.

The dead are alive again. Memories are fantasy or make believe. Truth is too nightmarish to withstand. Will you know what is
3.5 stars

I liked this one. Just be sure to follow closely because there is a lot going on and with over what almost 2 months since I've read Creeping Beautiful book 1, I kind of forgot a few things, but it wasn't too bad. The book is just full of suspense and the last 25% things just moved really fast. I was not expecting what happens in the last chapter. I just love the unexpected. It was good read, just that I don't think this is the last.

Have you ever played a Rubix cube? All those mixed up but interconecting squares where the pattern is totally screwed. Now imagine the colours constantly changing, just when you think you've got it sussed. Welcome to the gorgeously twisted world of JA Huss and The Company!
What a read! My heart has been in my mouth, just waiting for ALL the shoes to drop! At once! And they do!

Holy Crap! What did I just read? And why shouldn't I expect this each time with JA Huss? I've been reading her books for over 6 years and I'm still thinking these same thoughts. ;)

Pretty Nightmare is book 2 in this series and you absolutely must read book 1, Creeping Beautiful first. You can't get around it. This book is NOT a standalone. Book one introduces you to our characters and lays a good foundation of what is to come. Book 2 starts off where book one left us. Indie, Donovan, Adam and McK

I should've been prepared for this book. I knew that when I finished Creeping Beautiful (book 1) it stayed with me for a couple weeks. These characters haunted me then, but they completely shattered me now.
The first book was our introduction to the characters: Adam, McKay, Donovan, and Indie. Each one has their issues, their strengths and weaknesses. Each one has an important role to play in the lives of each other, and the Company. The

Is it just me, or does anyone else feel bruised after reading Company novels? I loved James Fenici and Harper Tate and devoured that trilogy, but no other Company book has made me that hungry. Maybe it was because those were my introduction and now I'm like nine books in and it's all WRONG, DIRTY, BAD--and not in a good or sexy way.

Pretty Nightmare is book two in the Creeping Beautiful series. Indie Anna Accorsi is the pretty nightmare of Core McKay and Adam Boucher, and the eternal mystery of

Indie may be reunited with Adam, McKay, Donovan and especially Maggie but the question still remains of what happened the night Indie disappeared and where has she been and what has she been doing. It is further compounded by the fact that she doesn’t remember the time before she met the three men which might just give her the answers she so desperately wants.

Indie considers these men her family but each of them are conflicted in their own way and holding secrets from their pasts that have the p

First off, I am so glad I read this one, I wasn't sure I wanted to after reading the first book because I didn't know if I wanted to or not. I really enjoyed this one more than the first one. I kept waiting for author J.A. Huss to say, and this is how McKay or Adam's dream went. But it didn't and now I want to know what is going to happen with Donavan.

J.A Huss is the queen of angst and she grabs you by the balls and keeps you so intensely intrigued throughout the entire book till the very end.

I had to go back and skim through book one again just to put me in the right mindset before diving into this one. Especially after that explosive cliff hanger. I'm glad I did. There are even more secrets in this one, but also lots of revelations that leave you somewhat satisfied. But also leaving room for more to come. Don't try to figure it out though, because our brilliant author would never make it obvious. Its dark, its a thriller, it gives you the psychological aspect that keeps your heart ...more

Pretty Nightmare is the second book in the Creeping Beautiful series. You MUST read Creeping Beautiful before you read this book!!! Indie Anna Accorsi, Core McCay, Adam Boucher and Donavan Couture and Maggie Accorsi are back and their stories need to be told!

I HIGHLY recommend Pretty Nightmare and series!

If you love twisted mind games and love suspense then you should love this book. There are some twists that I had to keep picking my jaw up from the ground and the twists kept on a coming!

Wow, my mind was blown away by this book! But, now I will go back! For the first section of the book my thoughts were that I loved these guys and loved being back in their world. McKay, Adam and Donovan: I love how this author writes their personalities and how they interact with each other. They all had different relationships with Indie too, and I appreciated that. I was glad to see Indie journey to find her truth in this book. When the truth and pr

Pretty Nightmare by JA Huss has well and truly blown my mind. Days later I’m still speechless. It’s a fantastic read with twists and turns aplenty, and as this amazing series continues to thrill and excite there are some shocking secrets revealed.
I love all the ‘Company’ related books. It’s an intriguing world full of secrets, mystery, suspense, and danger, with brilliant characters both good and bad.

Indie, McKay, Adam and Donavon. Four people brought together in a story with so many twists and turns I loved every bit of it. Secrets and self discoveries bring so much to the story. How these four are connected and what we learn about all of them, I could not wait to see what happened next. Huge fan of this author, and this one was so good!

I just finished this book and I'm a little speechless. Truthfully, reviewing a JA Huss book is so difficult because there are so many unknowns that 1. I don't want to spoil anything and 2. I want other readers to just go in blind. That's the best way to read a JA Huss story like this.
