Grim is the reluctant Alpha of the Rogue Pride Crew, and just trying to get from one day to the next without maiming his Crew. Controlling one animal is hard enough for shifters, but Grim is the only one in existence with two animals—a good lion and a monstrous lion named the Reaper. His life has been turned upside down after he fled his old Pride, and landed in a trailer park of lumberjacks in the heart of dragon territory. He’s Grim during the day and the Reaper at night, and life can’t get much more complicated. That is until he runs into a shy, blue-haired, curvy stunner named Ashlynn Kane. Ash might be just the distraction Grim needs to keep his inner Reaper from tearing his new Crew apart, but the closer he gets to her, the more he starts to believe in a bigger future for himself. And the more he believes, the more turmoil finds him and his new Crew.
Ash Kane is a simple girl who got left behind. Her best friends have joined a new Rogue Pride Crew, and no one calls anymore. Her life has become routine, and quiet, and lonely. That is, until her friends come back for a short visit and bring one monstrous, dual-personality Alpha lion shifter named Grim. She’s submissive, and he’s about as dominant as they come, and they shouldn’t be a good match, but she’s not scared of him, and here’s why. Her instincts are screaming that deep down, that trouble-makin’ man has good in him. She’s falling hard for him, but Grim is being hunted and haunted by a ghost from his past that could annihilate them both and ignite a war in Damon’s Mountains.
Good lion, bad lion, good lion, bad lion.
Half of Grim is salvageable, but always beware of the Reaper.

Ash Bear (Daughters of Beasts, #3) Reviews
Enjoyed Grim Reaper and Ash. A good addition to the series.
5 stars, if there were more, I would give this book more. I absolutely loved this book. I think Grim and Ash might be my favorite mates yet in the T.S. Joyce world.
Grim Reaper is a monster, Ash is a submissive. Something in each of them calls to the other. They see things in each other that no one else sees. It was a sweet story, filled with hope.
Can't wait for the next book by T.S. Joyce.
Grim .. Reaper -the man with two beasts. The Hunter. He was the question mark. The one who was going to hurt.
Being the creeper that I am.. I got my stalk on with all T S Joyce's socials so I could keep up to date with when Grim hit live. So I of course read all about her fight with his story and some greedy ass characters trying to get extra airtime. I knew after reading up that this one would hurt and there may be some shit that surprised me. I was not disappointed, obviously.
Grim is the sweetest monster. Oxymoron.. maybe, but he is. See no matter how bad it got he always looked out for Ash. The deeper we delved into all of his hidden cracks, the more I fell in love with this big broken hero. He didn't want to be a monster he was made that way but that wasn't going to be his future.
"I hear that racing heart. Don't be prey, pretty blue-haired lady. The bad in me likes it to much."
Ash, the delicate flower that will survive a storm. I'm not a fan of submissive characters usually. It's just a thing I can't help but be frustrated by however Ash had the complete opposite effect on me. Yes she's the timid shy one of her group but she still had a voice. I love her quirks and most of all I love that even if she's scared she'll stand up for what's right. She's strong in her own way.
When people got left behind, they didn't just cease to exist. They still had lives and hours to fill during the day, jobs and struggles. They still had sadness and joy. They still lived day in day out, missing whoever had left them behind.
Ash was careful of the people she chose, but when she picked one, her heart picked them for always.
This story has so much more sweet that I imagined it having. Grim has never been given acceptance or the chance to be softer. Ash has never had someone who will love her but also give her room to grow. Their story focuses on them solely, there isn't a lot of angsty drama. We get that slow burn romance full of growth and learning. We get a good understanding of who they are as individuals as well as them together whilst learning about what made them who they are in the first place. The story is great and rich is depth. The characters are brilliant! Loveable, easy to connect and very relatable in their emotions. Their story isn't easy because despite it not having a tonne of drama.. Ash and Grim had their own demons to work through. Also we have one particular side character who decided to take stage a few times letting us know that maybe his story isn't as finished as we had originally thought. Typical really of Vyr to pinch a little limelight. So yes this just killed it!. Sweet, raw, emotional gritty and humorous with all kinds of crazy shenanigans.. this story was epic as per. As far as shifter/ PNR romance goes T S Joyce really dominates the world with her larger than life characters.
I can't wait for Grim's Christmas!!!.
I friggn love T.S. Joyce's writing and shifter stories!
In this book has the "Sons of Beasts" and "Daughters of Beasts" in a surprising situation.
Since meeting Grim I have been intrigued to get to his book, to see why the Reaper exists. The story is brutal, but what makes it worse is that things didn't have to happen, if only his pride were decent people, his life could have been more normal.
I really liked how Ash was around Grim. Nothing seemed to phase her about his behavior, even when he was trying to scare her. I especially liked the chat that she had with Reaper. I also really loved the chat that Ash had with her dad, Bash, and how he told her to go after Grim.
I was a bit surprised by the role that Vry played in things. It seems like there is much going on there, I look forward to see what happens with him.
