I was four years old when I learnt what evilness the world could bring. I fought through life with my scarred soul, wrangled through the dark empty nights where I’d pray I didn’t wake up the next morning. I would shut my eyes and mentally take myself to my happy place.
The sound of waves crashing on the sand under my feet.
The final time the cold blade pushed up against my thigh, and I waited for my blood to trickle over the other One hundred and thirty-six scars that covered my skin— never came. Who was this man who just saved me? He had no idea how close I came to ending myself that day. I was ready to blow my brains all over the bedroom walls and I had a nine sitting under my pillow to prove it.
Some people have families, I had engineered human killing machines surrounding me my whole life. I’d been a part of this unit since I was a baby, raised in a community that was shut off from the real world. A community where we were nothing but empty vessels, until Hella (my best friend) and I escaped. Hella took us to a girl who was in foster care with him before he was summoned into The Army. After finding out yet another complication in my life, I needed space. I booked in to a run down apartment, ready to clear my head. Only my head didn’t clear, because I was haunted every night from the screams that would vibrate through my walls.
This is not a story of a perfect man coming in to save the day. This is a story of what happens when fate interferes and two completely broken souls collide.

This is not your regular MC read, this is unique, hard hitting, raw, passionate and intense.
What a fantastic start to a new series.
Beast is like no other, he was born into 'The Army' but not the army as we see it. They are a cult that mould people into what they want them to be and use them for their own reasons. Beast was never one for rules and broke them at every opportunity and in turn the cult tried to break him. Finally after a couple of attempts Beast breaks free with his best friend Hella and they end up on the doorstep of the SS MC. It is here his life takes a turn for the better, someone recognizes him for who he is and introduces him to his father. With his father being the president of another MC and Beasts life changing before his eyes he needs a break, time alone to regroup. Whilst taking his time out Beast is disturbed by the events occurring in the room next to his.
Meadow has been suffering at the hands of her father since the age of 4. With no way out she tried to beg and plead for it to end but that only adds to situation. Since the age of 12 the abuse has turned to another level and she finally decides that tonight will be the end of it, she is taking matters into her own hands.
This fateful night saw Beast and Meadows life cross paths, Beast is her savior but after all was said and done she never saw him again. She thought of him often but she moved on with her life.
Years later call it fate or destiny but they are now together in the same room and even though they don't really know one another Meadow finally feels safe.
What happens next...Well you will just have to one click and find out. But believe me when I tell you you will not be disappointed. There are twists and turns on every page that you will never see coming and the cliffhanger of an ending will leave you begging for more!!!

SO CONSUMING, SO RAW, SO DARK, SO INTENSE, SO GRITTY, SOOOOOO EPIC!! ~ Kitty Kats Crazy About Books
I enjoyed this a lot, I'm eager to see what the author plans for Hella because wow, he was a bit of an arse in this one. I'll be keeping up with this series for sure, and I'll more than likely go back and read the Sinful Souls books too. ~ Mj’s Book Blog & Reviews
I never thought too much into what I would do the next time I laid my eyes on the dark knight who swept into my life like a bandit of good deeds—my own saving grace. Would I run? Would I pound him with questions that I’m not sure I want to know the answers for? Women would talk of people saving their lives all the time at the meetings I would attend. They’d say things like, “He was a doctor, he saved my life,” or, “The man who saved me, he was the light in my tunnel of darkness.” I couldn’t refer to my encounter as either of those. My knight was not ‘lovely’ nor was he ‘the light in my tunnel of darkness.’ My knight was darkness, and like fighting fire with fire—I fought darkness with darkness.
My name is Meadow, and this is my story.
I knew exactly what I would do the next time—if I ever—saw the girl whose screams would vibrate through the run down walls of my apartment during the night. I never knew if they were screams coming from sleep, or screams tearing out from the awakened. But did it matter? The desperation in those screams pierced me like a sharply angled dagger, my very own personal weakness. Like Wolfsbane was to a werewolf or a stake to a vampire. I live in a world where werewolves and vampires don’t exist—daggers or wolfsbane couldn’t put my demons to rest. Because I don’t just have them, I am them. What I’ve endured, has morphed what could have been an innocent child and successful adult, into a demonic creature that even the people who created it, feared. The darkness has been surrounding me for so long, that it’s now the only way I can see.
This is what happens when fate interferes and two completely broken souls collide.
My name is Beast, or commonly known as Agent 316, and this is my story.
