Revealing the Beast by Summer Devon ~ Review by Teresa

Always willing to try a new shifter book from a new to me author!

RevealingTheBeast72lgTitle: Revealing the Beast

Author: Summer Devon, Solitary Shifter Book 2

Publisher: Samhain

My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

From the Publisher:

Colt Easton is easygoing, fun loving, good with little kids…and he occasionally turns into a beast capable of ripping out a man’s throat. It’s a family secret he’d be more than happy to keep—if there wasn’t a little boy’s life at stake.

A deathbed confession revealed the child could carry Easton blood. The only way Colt can monitor the boy is with a job at his day-care center. The problem? New laws decree that all shifters be tagged. No blood test, no job.

Dr. Jasper Glen is instantly drawn to the outgoing Colt and is certain any child would be safe in the handsome shifter’s care. He ought to know—he’s been studying shifters for years, even invented the blood test that now, to his shame, the government is using against them.

All it takes is a quick vial switch. Except Jasper’s good deed blows the lid off a secret he didn’t even know he was keeping. And triggers a chain of events that makes them all moving targets.

My View

Revealing the Beast is the second in Summer Devon’s Solitary  Shifter series, but you don’t need to read the first one in order to enjoy the second. Although, after reading the second, I now want to go and get the first 🙂

In this book, we meet Colt Easton, a varlse shifter – a type of big, deadly cat. In this world, shifters are very rare and they don’t shift (or translate as some call it) in to regular animals, but different species. Colt, however, wouldn’t hurt a fly unless he was protecting someone. Dr Glen is a Veterinarian that is now working with the government to identify shifters, but his motivation is more pure than than – he genuinely wants to help them.

I loved that there weren’t fated mates in this world, but there was definite cellular level attraction. Colt was so unashamed in his desire but did try and temper it when asked to do so. However, sexy times were hot when we finally got there! Revealing the Beast had a good plot,  with some mystery and action mixed in with the romance. There were a few unanswered questions at the end, which is why it didn’t get full marks, but an enjoyable story none the less.
