Nanee's Review of Man and the Beast Book 1 of the Beast Within Trilogy by J. Ashburn


Alec Ashcroft is afraid. Afraid of himself, the black outs, the hunger, and of what he might be capable of doing. See, Alec is a shifter, a wolf and he doesn’t know how to control his extraordinary power. Refusing to put his boyfriend Matt or his family at risk, Alec runs away from everything. He must protect others from his dark side and hopefully find the answers he’s been seeking all of his life.

The town of Redfern seemed the perfect escape, lots of forest land and animals to hunt, until Alec met Luca. Dark, seductive, sexy, Luca is like Alec and the scent of him drives Alec wild. He shows Alec how to control and use his power to his advantage and soon Luca exerts his allure over him. The two become entwined in a passionate and wild relationship with Luca even inviting him to join his pack high up in the mountains above town. Is this enigmatic new stranger to be trusted or is there something more sinister going on? All Alec wants to believe is that he’s finally found someone to calm the Beast Within.

Nanee's Review:

Wow! This book was amazingly written, the plot was totally unique and so intriguing. I couldn't put it down once I started reading, the characters were amazing. Alec such a sweet and loving guy, he's a wolf shifter but unique in every way, he's sexy too. Luca at first I loved, thought he was sexy and helpful and wanted what was best for Alec but the story changes into this amazing, fast paced, action packed, full of WTF moments. A few obvious parts  But what stood out most was Max and Phillip two more amazing characters that are just too good and Nan. Loved Will too, I felt for him and wanted to hug him, I was so sad for his part. He'll amaze you though. Surprising cliff hanger...can't wait to read the next book, and more by this author ....Truly amazing story and characters....5 stars 

Book 2 Lure of the Beast Coming Soon
