Title- Beast Within
Series-Beasty # 1
By- Tyffani Clark Kemp
Gabriel Slade runs Hollywood with his gorgeous blue eyes and egregious temper. No one knows that underneath it all is a man with a frozen heart, cursed to become a beast at every full moon. For seven days he has no choice but to roam the earth as a vicious animal, until he meets a woman who can change it all.
Luna Grace has a hatred for everything Gabriel Slade stands for, but she doesn’t even know what he looks like. When a chance encounter reveals feelings Luna never knew she harbored, it stands to reason that she would run.
Can Luna overcome her hatred and break the curse? Or will Gabriel’s temper keep her from realizing her true feelings, dooming him to remain the beast forever?

Series- Beasty # 2
By- Tyffani Clark Kemp
Now, it’s Luna’s turn…
Gabriel Slade has returned to take his rightful place as Captain of The General’s army. Luna stayed behind to nurse a broken heart and a precious secret that could mean the end of all mankind.
Humans possessed by the spirits of the dead are searching the earth for a child that will have the power to bring the apocalypse upon the world. Gabriel must find this child if he hopes to keep order and peace with the humans, but his heart keeps getting in the way. He must save the world from darkness, while making the one decision that could cost him everything.
Gabe once thought that roaming the earth as a hideous, angry beast was his curse. Now, without the love of his life he feels more helpless than before.
Well holy cow patties this was a smokin’ couple of days of reading. Having recently delved into a few unsatisfying paranormal reads, the Beasty series was a delightful treat. An incredibly original take on the classic tale of “Beauty and the Beast,” these two books have so much going for them, it’s a wonder I didn’t find them sooner! Definitely for fans of adult horror with a sense of humor, and for anyone who just needs a bit of bitter banter in their life. I found myself laughing a bit too loud a few times, and wanting to get some more quality time with Luna and Gabe. These two had one of those hate-to-love stories that normally comes off as contrived, but worked rather well given the circumstances (you know some people are not as bad when they are not cursed to turn into a monster lol.) If you’ve started reading the Beastly Tales by MJ Haag and are looking for more ways to get your Beasty fill- look no further than Tyffani Clark Kemp!
4 stars- 4 for Beast Within and 4.5 for Beast Anew
About the Author-
Tyffani Clark Kemp might be the quietest person in the room, but that just means she’s probably the biggest freak too. She is a multi-genre author with a gift for the written word and a desire to help all Indies reach their full potential. In 2012, she and her best friend Kimberly Fudge started SideStreet Cookie Publishing for authors who want to remain independent, but don’t have the time or the knowledge to do it all themselves. From the age of eleven she dedicated her life to writing and making sure she was good at her craft. Now, she passes that knowledge on to others. Her friends would describe her as determined and giving. She may be quiet, but she always has a story to tell.
