Monster by Arielle Crowell is a story of love, lust, lies, deceit, and betrayal. Christina is the daughter of a major crime boss in Richmond, VA named Romeo Calderon. Christina has lived a sheltered life and because of the protection of her father, she knows almost nothing about the business. Her brother, Dominic, has lived his life trying to be like his father.
Dominic is suspected of being involved in the murder of a member of the Carmichael family named Will. Dutch Carmichael is the son of Smiley Carmichael. Dutch is very handsome and charming.
Romeo Calderon throws a party for a few of his business associates, including Dutch. Upon meeting Dutch during the party, Christina is not very nice to him and appears to be stuck up and a prude towards him. Although Dutch does not know who Christina is, he is fascinated by her. Dutch’s father, Smiley, is in observance of the two and plans to use his son to get information from Christina for his own benefit. Smiley has a plan to avenge the death of Will, but is that the only thing he is after?
Although Monster by Arielle Crowell has its share of twists and turns, it also has its share of slow and fast. The ending seemed to be a little rushed and farfetched at times. In spite of this, the book was a good read and the characters were developed well.
