Publisher's Summary

Wendy Gale isn’t the kind of girl you marry. 

She’s not even the kind of girl you date. She’s not a friend with benefits, she’s not a one-night-stand, and regardless of what she thinks, she's never been a rebound.

Wendy Gale is the kind of girl you kidnap and lock in your basement so she can’t ever escape. She’s the kind of girl you tie up. You put a collar on her. A leash. Handcuffs. You chain her to things and gag her mouth. A blindfold isn’t a bad idea, either.

Because Wendy Gale is the kind of girl you grab on to - any way you can - and you never let go.

Wendy. Babe. You only need to know one thing about me, okay?

I will never let go.

Gorgeous Misery is a dark romantic thriller about one man’s desperate desire to save the woman he loves at all costs. It is the third book in the Creeping Beautiful series and must be listened to in order.

Tree of these books

Could you do like a family tree of these books so I know where to place every character in my head because I know that I’m hearing about characters I have no idea about because I’ve missed a couple books.
Thank you for your ring because it’s brilliant and I love it.

TWISTED TORTUROUS PERFECTION

You can’t go into a JA Huss story and expect conventional, predictable or ordinary.. instead you’re instantly entwined, snared, anxious, challenged, intrigued, excited, committed and utterly under the word witchcraft that JA Huss masterfully creates. And in Nick and Wendy’s story it’s all there.. the history, the secrets, the lies, the shocking truths, the emotional, the Company roots, the screwed-up main and secondary characters.. and the intricately woven web that ties them all together. There’s a nearly fourteen year age gap but it’s not an age gap romance.. there’s nineteen years of knowing each other but it’s far more than a friend-to-lovers story.. it’s deep, cryptic and layered but it’s oh so much more complicated than that. And I can’t get enough of this twisted world.. of the deeply damaged characters.. and their challenges as they try to stay sane, live and love.

Great narration too by all three A list narrators.. Hathaway, Joe and Troy, who gave and gave and delivered bitter-sweet perfection.

Worth a credit? A big fat YES.. and an even bigger fatter M O R E please.

OMG! The feels you will experience when reading this book!

I sort of expected for this third book in the series to pick up where book 2 left off but this is not the way this author weaves a story. You are taken on a wonderful journey that makes you question what you thought you understood, accept and delight in new truths and yearn for more information. If you don’t like cliff hangers and having to wait for the next book to drop to get answers then wait to start this book. Gorgeous Misery is a wonderful experience in the crazy world of child assassins. A glint of hope and love that keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat the entire time. Julie A Huss has done it again, if you have never had the pleasure of reading one of her books then it is about time you did. Hang on and enjoy the ride!

Nick & Wendy with a little Merc on the side!

One of my favorite things about JA Huss books is by the end, I am typically stunned into silence, and the only word I can muster is.....

F*** !!!!

Seriously, she is the only author that I have read (or listened to) in the romance genre that has been able to throw that metaphorical curveball into her storylines, and I just do not see it coming! Curveball is perhaps a bit of an understatement. It's really more like a nuke exploding in front of you. Then left to watch, as the blast radius ripples out and blows apart everything you thought you knew about the entire story.

I'm so excited to FINALLY have Nick Tate and Wendy's story! These characters play roles in so many other "company" books. So for them to have their own leading role is fantastic. I am assuming it is going to be continued in the next book.

I also love that Merc (from "See you in the Dark") is back! He's been so very twisted in other books. So to see him get twisted, it's more than amusing!

This book did not disappoint!

Performance was awesome. Hathaway Lee (Wendy) has become one of favorite female narrators. Joe Arden (Nick) and Troy Duran (Merc), as always, did a fantastic job!

Loved it!!!

Must read!

This is book number 3 you must read the first two to understand parts of this book! Seriously though you should just start at the beginning!
JA Huss has done it again! I have yet to read a series of books as complex and put together. As I finished this book, I ask myself how is she going to answer all my unfinished questions in the next and final book of the series…then I remember this is JA Freaking Huss! Cannot wait until March!

Another great story

Geez Julie. The twists and turns. I love how every corner comes a new way of looking at the story. I love Nick & Wendy. The details and interconnection of all these books are fascinating. Can't wait for the next book. And I really miss your EOBS and glad this one had one.

Another awesome listen by JA Huss

Thank you Julie for bringing us Nick Tate's story. I have been patently waiting since I read Pretty Nightmare in Sept 2020. Loved hearing more about Nick and Wendy. Another crazy ride from Julie. Excellent narration by Hathaway Lee, Joe Arden & Troy Duran.
