I absolutely LOVED Rachel's previous books, so I jumped on the chance to read this ARC. But not only that I was intrigued with the concept behind this collection, the "Woodland Creek" collection is a collaboration of 30 authors all writing about 1 little town in Indiana USA... I couldn't wait to read what Rachel had come up with for this.
Boy she didn't dissappoint! From the very first line I was sucked into this story, it was EVERYTHING (underlined 3 times) I've come to expect from Rachel, strong characters, heart felt scenes, steamy in the right places, action packed. How Becca & Aster interract with one another, is consuming, both trying to keep their secrets hidden until the right time, then their chemistry is so hot, it literally ripples from the page. I was especially excited to learn what type of shifter Rachel wrote for this collection, WOW I've NEVER read another book with this type of shifter in it. I will not give the shifter type away here, you'll need to read it to find out.
I can honestly say I wish this was longer, but eveything that was needed was in here. I fell in LOVE & can't wait to read what the others have written for the "Woodland Creek" collection.
*** I was given this book as a gift from the author in exchange for my honest review. ***

Becca’s life has always been rough. In the foster care system as a young girl, she barely manages to stay in the last foster family until she turned 18. The roving hands of the man who was supposed to protect her finally made the decision to hit the streets much easier. She thought she’d found a man to care for her – and realized far too late that his kind of love was merely a prison from which she would long to escape. When that final last straw happens, Becca takes her lost courage in hand and runs as far as she can – until destiny runs her off the road and into the arms of Aster.
The motorcycle came from out of nowhere and before Aster could hit the brakes the bike and its rider had hit the pavement hard. As he runs to help the rider, Aster comes face to face with his mate. An angry mate who doesn’t back down from telling him what an idiot he is before she passes out. As he helps Becca heal from her physical wounds, Aster must find a way to heal the inner wounds that Becca never allows anyone to see.
His desire to protect wars with his fear that she will run from him when she knows what he really is… and neither he nor his beast will let that happen.
The Beast Within shares the story of a creature of mythology. As a minotaur shifter, Aster knows that revealing himself to anyone is dangerous. Yet, Becca is his mate and even though she holds secrets of her own, he is determined to keep her at his side, safe forever.
This story is a tender revealing tale of two wounded souls who are exactly what the other needs, but each is afraid to trust. The desire between Becca and Aster is off the charts hot and steamy – and slowly Becca begins to lose some of her now natural fear of the future. She knows that there are monsters in the world and one is looking for her right now. But for the moment she is content to stay with Aster and hope for a different future.
I enjoyed this story very much. A different spin on the shifter type, but Aster was an excellent character who keeps his dual selves in check, for the most part. Becca is a strong woman, she might not realize it but Aster sees her strength and her stubbornness. They are indeed a perfect match for each other.
If you enjoy shifter Paranormal Romances then both The Beast Within and the Woodland Creek Collection that it is a part of should be on your “to be read” list.
