Pleasant enough story but pretty slow moving, and certainly not the steamy read some reviews suggest. The main characters are reasonably well described and the plotline ok - but thats the problem. I couldn't feel part of the book, didn't really empathise with the characters, and wasn't that bothered about what was happening.
Its very average - no great hero. Not sure I'd bother buying it though - it wasn't a bad idea, had lots of promise but just could have been so much stronger and interesting with a bit more thought to it. Sadly its easy to critise and hard to actually write - thats why i'm not an author and of course books and what we like vary so much i'm sure other people will love this one.
This is just my opinion on it. If you look at what books I do like then you can work out if this review is helpful to you. There was a problem loading the comments at the moment. Showing 0 comments.

I absoloutly loved the main character, Shelby is so ballsy and has such a wicked sense of humour. I really felt bonded to her from the start.
The love interest is manly ,yet vulnerable and it makes you melt. I instantly felt invested in the story and I will stick with the series for sure. It is mainly romace and family based, but there is so much besides that going on too it is so very very good. Love love love it! Will be sharing with friends for sure! This was decent, but veeerrryyy slow-paced, with barely a love scene, and it ended on Format: Kindle Edition. I should have realised that this was by the same author as Cowboy Moon, which didn't end in a HEA, and should have prepared myself for the ending which was no ending.
It wasn't an awful tale, and in fact, it was a different kind of Were tale and mating, which was kind of a nice change, but thinking back, I prefer the 'she's my mate, my hormones are going crazy, must have her, must mate her, must mark her' kind of Alpha Were romance. In this tale, there is a gentle romance, more a wooing than a seduction, drawn out by the presence of a shadowy baddie, with a bit of angst provided by cousins who are suing the female lead over her inheritance, and yes, it all worked, but like I said, it was slow. I think all they did was kiss, and not many times at that.
True History Decrypted
It could have done with a few things being omitted, without changing the storyline too much, which would have allowed the tale to progress at a better, more interesting pace. Still, it was readable and kind of well done, but a very slow, very vanilla, slightly bland Were tale. I really quite enjoyed Hunter Moon. The Lunacy Act of defined a lunatic as a person who exhibited lucidity in the first two phases of the moon but grew demented during the full moon phase.
Lunacy, and the changes it wrought in humans, brings us back to the man who is pure of heart, and says his prayers by night, yet becomes a wolf. The ditty might have been penned by Curt Siodmak for The Wolf Man , but he was building on a dark tradition that has its roots in classical mythology. For the ancients, a werewolf was a person transformed into a wolf by magical means. It is said that werewolves roamed the country at night and would attack babies and humans.
There are defences, of course, and ways to spot a werewolf in human form. And, of course, though werewolves were said to be immune to normal ordnance, a silver bullet, especially if blessed by a priest, would kill one. Zeus turned Lycaon into a wolf for his crime, which is where we get the term lycanthrope from to denote a werewolf. A werewolf could be created through being cursed, perhaps by a Hecate-worshipping witch, or sleeping in the light of the moon, or being conceived under a new moon. Michel Verdun is thought to be the first man to be tried for lycanthropy, in Poligny in He was arrested and under torture confessed to being a werewolf, pointing the finger at two other men, Pierre Bourgot and Philibert Montot.
Bourgot told the authorities that he had been approached by three men dressed in black who urged him to reject God, and in return he was promised protection for his flock of sheep and given an ointment which, when applied, allowed him to transform into a wolf by the light of the moon. All three men were executed.

Similar trials were carried out across Germany , the Netherlands and Estonia. We now know, of course, that the moon is not imbued with any magical powers, nor can exert any kind of influence over us. It is a lump of rock, about 2, miles in diameter. It has little atmosphere, and no weather; no erosion means that the footprints left by the crew of Apollo 11 half a century ago will endure, untouched, for millions of years.
And yet… the moon fascinates us beyond the fact of us actually getting there in The full moon carries with it far more weight than a mere satellite reflecting the light of the sun, it shoulders mythology, legend and folklore that dates back almost as far as mankind itself.
