Our thoughts...

Stepping right into The Beast we start off with our very own Rhage coming back into his own like he hadn’t left us in years. I love being inside his head.  He is probably the most hilarious of all the brothers. Cue the story

To be honest, I am a true Cellie through and through. I have been reading these books since she started writing them. I have loved each and every book she has written except Phury, and that is quite a lot. This book had me struggling. I felt like It could’ve been more of a side story, than an actual up front in your face one. It just didn’t do it for me. Yes, it was sweet, yes they worked out everything they could to get where they were going, but I just wasn’t invested. Moving on, though.
Let’s start with how much Assail was in this book eh? He has been off in the distance since The King. I almost forgot about his existence until he was in the forefront with V helping the brotherhood find out some intel on our dearest glymera. His point of view rocked my world, almost to the point where I don’t think I am going to be able to stand it until next year. I mean move over V, there is a new love for me in town. I have always been very interested in Assail, and now that I have even more of his point of view in my brain it will be hard to let him go by the wayside.
Vishous!  The love of my life!  You were also in this book quite a bit. I LOVED that. We find out so many new and exciting things about your life and what’s going on in it. You never disappoint me true? You aren’t fooling anyone anyway with your non-caring asshole ways you know that? We see you now more than we ever have. I relished my time spent with you in this book. Everything from being pissed at Hollywood in the beginning to delivering the babies. That scene where you are yelling at your sister? So intense.
Conclusion: As always JR Ward is masterful when it comes to weaving in and out of scenes. Even though her BDB always has a couple per say. This one gave me enough of ongoing stories and what the future might entail to keep me interested.

3.5/4 stars for The Beast!
