Title: Stolen Soulmate
Author: Mary Catherine Gebhard
Genre: New Adult Bully Romance
Release Date: February 27, 2020
There’s a rule in Crowne Hall: never look a Crowne in the eyes.
It protects us more than them.
I broke it once, the night Grayson Crowne mistook me for his true love and stole my first kiss. I’ve regretted it every day since.
He hates me.
He torments me.
He won’t let me go, because that night he whispered a secret against my lips not meant for me. Grayson Crowne, heir to the Crowne empire and notorious playboy prince is… a virgin.
I signed a contract in my heart’s blood as much as ink: help him get back his love, repair what I broke. Give him my body, my soul, my heart, let him use all of me, so when the time comes to marry her, he won’t need me.
I shouldn’t need him.
But he’s my stolen soulmate, and I’m at his mercy.
The ink was barely dry on the pages. I don’t know if I was ready for this. Somehow I felt like I was more of a virgin than Grayson. Nervous, skittish. He’d warned me when all of this began that the things he’d seen and done would wreck me. I should’ve believed him then.
When I didn’t do anything for a minute, he arched a brow.
Do whatever he says.
I could use my safe word, but a twisted part of me liked doing what he told me to
do. Liked the rush and the way his eyes hardened. It felt like power, power over one of the most powerful people in the world.
I’d barely taken a step to him, when he ripped me to him by the small of my waist. His other hand tangled in my hair, yanking my head to the side.
“Fuck,” he said, lips at my neck. “Which part do I eat first.”
Delicious tingles spread along my skin at his words. His nose ran along my neck, goosebumps following in his wake. His hands slid from hair, from my waist, along my body, feeling every inch of me, like he couldn’t do it fast enough, before settling
back in my hair.
Deliriously, I found
the zipper of my dress, but his overtook mine. Stopping me.
“I’m going to ruin
your white dress, Snitch. Ruin you. Until you’re all fucked up from me.”
Catherine Gebhard bites off more than she can chew. She’s lived in Salt Lake
City, Utah her entire life, but occasionally goes on vacation from reality.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Wow! I can’t remember reading a book with so much drama, hate, or angst in quite a while. A story of two people that really should have never even so close to each other but now that they’ve each had a taste of each other, they find it hard to give it up.
Story Hale has a dark, rough past and childhood. She’s a servant in Crowne Hall and has to follow the rules of the house. When she finds herself pulled into the antique room one day, her whole life will change forever.
Grayson Crowne is the Prince of the Crowne legacy. He is to follow his grandfather and mother’s rules and he is to marry the woman that they declare to be his wife. He’s always been in love with her anyways, so it’s not a hardship for him, that is until he mistakenly kisses another woman.
This story was so angsty and cruel. The love story of two people who never should have found their way to each other and yet, they are so perfect for each other. Is there any truth about fate? I give this story a 5-star review and recommend it to readers who like bully, forbidden, angsty, billionaire love stories. Story deserves so much more than she is getting in this story and I hope that she finds it in future books.
