Review: The Beast by J.R. Ward

Publication Date: 4/5/2016

Official Blurb: 

Rhage and Mary return in a new novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, a series “so popular, I don’t think there’s a reader today who hasn’t at least heard of [it]” (USA Today).

Nothing is as it used to be for the Black Dagger Brotherhood. After avoiding war with the Shadows, alliances have shifted and lines have been drawn. The slayers of the Lessening Society are stronger than ever, preying on human weakness to acquire more money, more weapons, more power. But as the Brotherhood readies for an all-out attack on them, one of their own fights a battle within himself…

For Rhage, the Brother with the biggest appetites, but also the biggest heart, life was supposed to be perfect—or at the very least, perfectly enjoyable. Mary, his beloved shellan, is by his side and his King and his brothers are thriving. But Rhage can’t understand—or control—the panic and insecurity that plague him…

And that terrifies him—as well as distances him from his mate. After suffering mortal injury in battle, Rhage must reassess his priorities—and the answer, when it comes to him, rocks his world...and Mary’s. But Mary is on a journey of her own, one that will either bring them closer together or cause a split that neither will recover from...

Ahhhhhh, A new Rhage Story! EEP!

Okay, fan girl aside, The Beast stole my heart.  Good.Freaking.God. The man with a beastly side melted my heart for entirely different reasons other than his… bedroom skills and devotion to Mary.  But, love isn’t the only emotion you will feel as you read this book.  The first few chapters will tick you off so badly for his actions, but in the end, he will redeem himself in so many ways.  His needs to make his family life come full circle also spills into the other brothers, which makes for some funny and heartfelt moments. 

Without spoiling this book there is not a lot I can talk about, but just know that the laughs and the tears will outweigh your frustration and anger.  You’ll see glimpse of LW, Wrath, and Beth along with all of your favorite brothers. Lassiter is in rare form and will leave you in stitches from laughing. Layla’s pregnancy teases what’s to come with the next book that will feature her and Xcor.  

Oh, and Rhage, if you are reading this, don’t forget karaoke next week.  You and I will be singing “Under the Sea” from the Little Mermaid, true?
