Beneath a Rising Moon (Ripple Creek Werewolf #1) by Keri Arthur

Beneath a Rising Moon

RATING:

4 Out Of 5 Stars

REVIEW:

When Neva’s twin sister, Savannah, is attacked and in critical condition she sets out to find her sister’s attacker and the one responsible for a string of murders her sister was investigating. After reviewing her sisters files of the murders, she decides to attend the Sinclair Pack’s Moon Phase gatherings and snag Duncan Sinclair, the only one so far cleared of being a possible suspect.
Duncan returned to Ripple Creak for one purpose, to find the one responsible for the murders that have been happening at his father’s home during the Moon Phase gatherings. He had no intention to join the gatherings, but that changes when he gets an invitation from Neva that he can’t refuse.
When they realize they are trying to achieve the same goal in finding out who is responsible for the murders that have occurred, they join forces to find the killer. As they work together their attraction for each other grows, and they soon realize that their attraction that they have for each other is more than they anticipated…

This was a really enjoyable take on Wolf Shifters. I have read a few series involving shifters and this one had a few great ideas that differ from the other series I have read. Each of the characters have their own mindset that make them fun. I am especially looking forward to the books about Duncan’s bothers, and can’t wait to see who will change their wild ways.
I didn’t like how long it took to clear up Duncans misunderstanding and suspicions about Neva in the beginning and wished it was cleared up faster. But all in all it was a really fun book to read and I look forward to the others in the series.

Savage Awakening (Alpha Pack #2) By J.D. Tyler

Savage Awakening (Alpha Pack, #2)

RATING:

4 Out Of 5 Stars

REVIEW:

I really enjoyed J.D. Tyler’s take on shifters. This is the first one I have read in the series and I thought Aric and Rowan’s story was really interesting to read. It was fast paced and in the shifters Alpha pack was well written. She is a kick-butt cop and he is a sarcastic, life of the party type of guy. I liked how their relationship developed and that they got to know each other a little bit and how they both were attracted to each from the start. I like how the author written how the mating bond for the shifters work. It was different in comparison to some of the other books I have read. The only thing I didn’t care for was the graphic sexual content and the bad language. There isn’t many books now a days that don’t have it and I don’t mind it, but the sexual situations involved were a bit to graphic for my tastes. But other then that it an enjoyable book to read.
Though there were a lot of fun characters that I would love to see what love interest would bring them to their knees, the one that caught my interest was Kalen and Mac’s story. I am looking forward to see how their story turns out. Though they weren’t mentioned a lot other then a page here and there they really drew my attention. It seems like they would have an interesting story, especially after reading the sneak peek they had at the end of the book. I may be tempted to read it and just hope that the sexual content and language isn’t too bad.

The Wolf Who Loved Me (Westfield Wolves #5) By Lydia Dare

The Wolf Who Loved Me (Westfield Wolves #5)

RATING:

4 Out Of 5 Stars

REVIEW:

Weston Hadley has been in love with Lady Madeline Hayburn from the moment he met her. But he never got to close because, he thought he was really beneath her by not having a title, a high status, or money. So he loved her afar believing that was good enough until a twist of fate had Madeline discovering one of secrets that changed everything…
During a house party that Madeline’s father threw to help her find a husband, Madeline goes in search of Weston to get him to tell her information about one of her suitors, when she spots him by the stables. As she goes out to meet him she waits by the door, when he walks out naked in the light of the full moon she witnesses him changing into a wolf… After that everything changes and she finds herself abducted and on her way to Gretna Green to be married…

I really liked Weston’s character. I liked how he was in love with Madeline from the moment he met her and only wanted her to be happy, because he never thought he had a chance with her. I liked how he tried his best to make sure she was taken care of and how he made sure she was safe. He showed respect and remorse for his actions.

Madeline’s character was different. You can tell she was raised really strictly and never had one hair out of place. I liked how during the journey to Gretna Green she starts to grow. When she jumps to a conclusion and makes a mistake in leaving, you read how she learns from that mistake and tries her hardest to make it right.

This is the first back I have read of Lydia Dare’s Wolf series. So I have probably read them out of order, but it doesn’t effect the story at all. When some of the other characters were mentioned I did want to read their stories. Especially Weston’s single brothers. I am curious what kind of lady will bring them to the knees and curious to see if one them has met there match in this book as well. So I am looking forward in reading more books in the series.
There were somethings that happened during the book that were never discussed or resolved in my opinion. I did wish that some of the issues were brought to light and discussed, but in no way harmed Weston’s and Madeline’s story.
