The Beast Within( Woodland Creek) by Rachel M. Raithby


Woodland Creek Series.

30 Authors. 30 Shifter Stories.

"Passion ignites and pasts collide, when the beast comes out to play"

Trapped in an abusive relationship for two years, leaving could prove deadly for Becca Kian. But when she’s pushed a step too far, Becca has no choice but to flee. After an accident that leaves her unconscious, Becca wakes to find herself in the cabin of a man who’s as entrancing as he is dangerous. Because this man makes her want to dream — dream of a world where Alex Scar doesn’t exist. 
Both Minotaur and human, Aster Tavros is a shifter in hiding. Living in Woodland Creek, he’s made no effort to form relationships, too afraid to allow others to see his true nature. Because when they do, they run. Yet when Becca comes crashing into his life, he ignores every one of his rules. Passion ignites between them, but when secrets and pasts collide, Aster has a choice. He can hide his identity, or reveal his true self to save Becca, all the while, risking losing her forever…

My Review 

*** I received this ARC from the author in return for my honest opinions.  No compensation has been given and all opinions are my own.***

I have always had a thing for mythological creatures.  I love the mystery and awe surrounding them. Did they really exist or was it all a creative imagination of so many? If they did exist why wouldn't they still be around hiding??? Something to really ask yourself right lol?

 If they did I feel like this story would totally work, sexy guy having to hide what he is while searching for his mate. How hard must it be to keep what you truly are hidden from the person who would mean so much to you. When our sexy minotaur finds his mate imagine his surprise at the fact she is on the run. Now while he could protect her from just about anything how in the world can he tells her that without seeming like a lunatic right? 

Becca is running from a very dangerous group of people that she has seriously pissed off with a little bit of glee lol. When she runs into this mountain of a man she doesn't know what to think really, just that she has to keep moving. While she feels safe to an extent while he helps her get her bike fixed she can't afford to stay long. 

The chemistry between both characters is amazing and when they do come together it is hot as hell. I loved the story leading up to and the climactic ending. Loved the reveal of himself and how Becca felt about it. Overall great story and cannot wait to read more by this author. Four stars!!!!!
