The first time I saw Hamilton, he was balls deep in one of the bridesmaids at my motherโ€™s wedding.

He was lethal. Handsome. Cruel. Twisted.

I was drawn to him like fists to glass. We had an angry sort of relationship. There was nothing kind about the broken man that stole my heart and crushed it in his fist. He was all sharp edges. One touch could ruin me. One kiss could end our happy little family.

When my mother married Joseph Beauregard, son of the governor of Connecticut, I never imagined Iโ€™d fall in love with my stepfatherโ€™s younger brother. I never imagined Iโ€™d uncover the truth about his familyโ€™s bloody legacy.

Hamilton escaped with scars to his name and a ruined reputation. And now? I wanted out, too. I guess the scandal of our relationship was the least of our familyโ€™s problems.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Holy crap, what did I just read? Bastards & Scapegoats is an absolutely PERFECT title for this messed-up family drama/forbidden romance.

This is the first book I’ve read by CoraLee June, and I am now a fan! She perfectly created these characters. I loved the vulnerability that Hamilton shows around Vera. He’s so wounded and broken and hides it behind cocky arrogance. He finds a kindred soul in his new niece, Vera, another wounded heart who constantly feels as if she needs to apologize for her mere existence. On paper, everything about Vera and her stepfather’s brother being together is wrong…. but when they are together, Vera and Hamilton just have an ease, a comfortability, and all seems right in the very messed-up world they live in.

Until it isn’t.

As secrets unfold and lies unravel, Vera gets hit after hit as the truth about her new family’s deep, dark demons are exposed. Nothing is as it seems, and the few people Vera thought she could trust she learns she can’t.

Bastards & Scapegoats is part 1 of a duet, and does end on a cliffhanger. As I got to the end, I was shocked by the revelation in the second-to-last chapter! I need the conclusion to Vera and Hamilton’s story now — not February!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
