I absolutely loved this story. The story was engaging and intriguing and heartfelt and emotional and full of anguish and despair and also so much love. The characters were wonderful and we absolutely loved Francis and Grave and Dylan.

Francis was a character that your heart hurt and bleed for everything that he had gone through at the hands of his parents but, our heart also went out to his siblings as well for all that this family had endured at the hands of those monsters they called parents. I

What a way to stitch together the foundation for a new series!
Corny, I know, but this was one of those feel-good reads that left me well...
Feeling good!

So many things I enjoyed about Behemoth
The characters are well written and easy to connect with
The author did a solid job of laying the foundation for the series, tossing out those little bread crumbs that gave us hints at what the future might hold
Nothing was as I expected - that was probably, for me, the biggest plus. This had a small-town fee

This is a new to me author so this review is based solely on the content of this book. This is the first of a new MC series that is also dubbed "paranormal". I have read hundreds of books in both genres so combine the two--I am in.

First the good stuff: Francis "Stitch" was so intriguing to me. I wanted to know more about him. We get some of his back story, but clearly he has honed his "skill" as he has gotten older. How did that occur? How has he kept that secret? I am a champion for the troubl

Yay to a new series with lots of characters to love and it's an MC. Who's excited? Me.

Francis was let down the people who should have loved him and cherished him the most. Sadly he get to carry those memories with him in the now but he also wears them in his scars on the outside. Most people struggle with the scars and don't really take the time to see the man behind it all. Keeping himself busy between his involvement with the Grimm Wolves MC and his job as a Fireman. Sometime it can b

Not Quite as it Seems

For me this was more of a romance story than an MC story which is really fine in itself. Francis/Stitch was a man haunted by his past and lives with many scars both mentally and physically. He also has special skills that lend a hand in his firefighting job and within the Grimm Wolves MC who took him in.

Grace is a nurse practitioner raising her son, Damian. She finds that not all MC's are alike and the insta connection between Grace and Francis turns into a great romance. I

*3.75 stars*

This is definitely a new spin on an MC romance. Francis has “gifts” yet the author never goes into details about his powers besides he can read minds or has spidey senses. We know some of his some of his history as a child but we just don’t get enough detail in my opinion about him. It can make it confusing at times.

Grace and her son Damien also have a story that we don’t get to see clearly. Damien has powers as well. Francis says Damien is like him but because we don’t get an expla

I adore Francis N. Stine, aka, Stitch. Brutalized by his parents, who wanted to cash in on the family lineage of Victor Frankenstein, Francis and some of his siblings were able to survive by using their "gifts." Scarred both emotionally and physically at the hands of his family, Francis is a loner because experience has taught him those who are different aren't often accepted. As a nomad for the Grimm Wolves MC he is able to use his abilities to help his club. As a firefighter he saves lives wit ...more

This is a new author to me and I can’t believe I am just now reading her!! She has a new spin on this genre and I am along for the ride. Francis/Stitch is a nomad for an MC and a firefighter with special talents. He is scarred from his past both mentally and physically and is drawn to Damien a boy with special gifts also. While in the ER he meets Grace the boy’s hard-working nurse practitioner of a mother. The chemistry between the two is undeniable but she is leery of jumping in with both feet ...more

I was soooooo torn rating this! Behemoth is hands down one of the most unique twists on an MC romance I’ve ever read. There is not one other book I’ve encountered in the genre that is anything like it. D.M. Earl created something truly special in this book. All of that probably has you questioning why this wasn’t five roaring stars for me. Mostly it was due to the flow.
As the first book in a series I know to expect there to be a lot happening, after all we’re establishing a world here.

This is a new author for me as well as the start of a new series. Anytime a new series starts book 1 is often slower to get moving because it’s setting up the series. I found that to be true in Behemoth HOWEVER, not as drastically in some series I read, so it definitely didn’t affect my reading pleasure. What it did do is let me know this is going to be a humdinger of a series to come. I really enjoyed Behemoth’s storyline and the characters were outstanding.

SCARS ARE THE SNAPSHOTS OF OUR LIVES GOOD AND BAD.

Francis has a huge heart except most people can't get past his appearance. The Grimm Wolves took him under their wings when he was younger and they are his family. Never actually knowing what love was/is or what it means to have someone care about you. His life was pretty bad from the start. Tortured by his parents since birth I assume, his life was not that of a normal everyday kid.

Grace and Damien, this mother and son duo also had it rough. W

When you go through life thinking that you are a monster, it is hard to believe that you can find true happiness. When school field trips introduces you to a little with the same abilities that you have your life begins to change.

Francis "Stitch" has scars all over his body because his parents had an obsession with Frankenstein. All his life he has been treated like a monster and with his special ability his weird factor is even higher. He has never had a friend or a women to love. Now as an ad

Behemoth was a very original MC story with a kicker of paranormal, making it even more interesting in my eyes.  Francis is not only a nomad for the Grimm Wolves MC, he's also a fireman.  He's very broken because of an ugly childhood, so while he has a huge heart & will put everyone before himself, it hurts when people are scared of his outside scars.  The day a little boy named Damien came into his life, things took a huge turn for the better actually.  See Damien's mother, Grace, is a beautiful ...more

Francis/ Stitch & Grace + Damian

His entire life has been the horror his parents made of him as a child. His scars have made him tormented until the Grimm Wolves MC took him in. In addition to basic duties for the club and work as a local Fire Fighter, he has special skills that have helped the club in many ways. Now he needs the help of the club.

Grace didn't know who Francis the firefighter was but she did know he'd been kind to her son who had received limited such treatment in his difficult yo

Francis N Stein A slight supernatural twist to MC life....

Ok I found this a little strange to start with as it was different from other MC books I have read before. Though that's what sucked me in.


I haven't been well or able to concentrate on reading last few weeks but I wanted desperately to read this. So I gave it a go and a few hours later I realised I hadn't moved at all and managed to finish it in one sitting rather than the quick chapter or few pages I was going to try!

Behemoth by D.M. Earl. 4 stars
I enjoyed reading this story about Francis and Grace. This book is much more of their love story than it is a
MC book. The MC is a very small part of this story. Francis is pretty much a loner firefighter/biker he has some special powers and experienced a horrific childhood so he doesn’t trust easily. He meets Grace at the hospital when he needed some medical attention. He’s instantly smitten and it seems she has the same feelings. These two have some issues to work

This story had quite a tragic thread throughout, but it did have a happy ending. Behemoth/Francis underwent a horrific childhood, but I was glad that it did not totally destroy him. He was a good man with the right guidance at the right time. Grace had her own baggage but was willing to take a chance on Behemoth. Their attraction helped heal them somewhat. There were elements of special abilities, violence, intrigue, and family that kept the story moving, though at times, I felt it was a bit rep ...more

I didn't start this series with this book but with Bottom of the Chains and I just HAD to read this book. I wanted the mysterious Stitch's story so bad. Boy am I glad that I went directly back to read it because what a great book!!! This would be my second book by D.M. Earl and if the rest of the series goes like this couples story than this is going to be a winning series for me.

Stitch isn't like most MC men, he is special and finding someone who can understand that isn't going to be easy. He

Grace only wants her son safe. Stitch steps up and helps the little boy out when he gets picked on by school bullies. These two take a ride that will make you laugh and cry. I couldn’t read fast enough. Excellent writing with a truly explosive storyline.

When he meets Damien, he is drawn to this gifted boy, and when he is in the ER, he meets Grace who is a nurse practitioner and is also is Damien’s hard working mom.

My heart!

From the first page, I was hooked! Francis has split his time and his abilities between the firehouse and the Grimm Wolves MC. Both benefiting equally with his unique help. But he craves more and when he meets Damien and his mum, he starts to believe it's within his grasp.
The chemistry between Francis and Grace is instant but she is very wary, especially from her past experiences with an MC. When the truth comes out Francis and his brothers step up to prove they will stop at nothing to

“Have I mention how much I love MC stories? They’re absolutely amazing and Behemoth wasn’t the exception. I cried and fell in love through the story. My heart still aches for Francis past and the scars he’s still charging. He was both mentally and physically hurt. One of the things I loved the most about him was his skills as firefighter and being on the Grimm Wolves MC. It was different from the usually stories plus with lots of romance which was beyond awesome. Damian and Grace were adorable a ...more
