Beware of a kiss under the full moon. It will change your life forever.

Celeste Parker is used to hearing scary stories about werewolves—Legend’s Run is famous for them. She’s used to everything in the small town until Brandon Maddox moves to Legend’s Run and Celeste finds herself drawn to him, much to the chagrin of her friends and perfect boyfriend. But when, after an unnerving visit with a psychic, she encounters a pack of wolves and gorgeous, enigmatic Brandon, she must discover if the stories are more than legend. He may be Celeste’s hero or he may be the most dangerous creature she could encounter in the woods of Legend’s Run.

Psychic predictions, generations-old secrets, a town divided, and the possibility of falling in love with a hot and heroic werewolf are the perfect formula for what happens . . . once in a full moon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved :) This was my first werewolf book and I really enjoyed it. I could not put it down and stayed up later than usual just to finish reading it. It got my attention from the beginning and I loved the fact that the werewolf in his actions and appereance is different from all the werewolves we are used to hearing about. I am glad I purchased this book it was worth it it's a very fast read but it keeps your attention and you want to know more. Of course, there is the usual love story which is pretty predictable but that's in almost every book, just to give us a warm fuzzy feeling! I can't wait to read the sequel to this book and see what happens :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick light reading. Ok. I admit, there is a flaw of having a couple instantly just fall in love with each other and thinking they’re going to be together forever. Without properly knowing each other, it seems far fetched and even silly but I couldn’t help but love Brandon and Celeste being together. They had that chemistry between them. You certainly didn’t feel the same way when Celeste is with Nash. However that being said, I’m biased as I’m a sucker for hockey boys and Brandon happens to be one. I liked that a lot because you do get tired of reading the same kind of guy who plays basketball and football. Hockey was a nice change to see. The plot was not that bad, but it wasn’t the best either. It provided a good entertaining read and I was able to read the book in one sitting (it was short in length too). I would say, it’s not the kind of book to deeply mull over rather, it’s really one to read to pass the time, or for avid voracious readers, it’s a book you read ‘in between’ heavy reads. I rather enjoyed it despite a few flaws here and there, but the cliffhanger at the end got me so I will be looking forward to the next book. The characters aren’t really that special. Celeste’s friends are rather empty headed typical popular girls you see in nearly every YA book there is. Celeste isn’t that bad herself as she’s different from the in-crowd. I am not a fan of Nash as he’s a typical egotistical jock and he was not the greatest boyfriend to Celeste anyways. I did feel bad for him though, because he was in his own little world and oblivious to Celeste and her feelings. I really did like Brandon (however as mentioned before, that’s a biased opinion). This is a short read, and the ending of this book does leave everything out in the open, it may not be the best read, but I thought it was entertaining enough to make it one of those ‘light reads’. I don’t think this is for those that are wanting something deeper and with more development. You won’t really find it here. Otherwise, do pick this up if you’re wanting something light before you jump into something heavier.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dreaming of Books Review Celeste was always trying to make her friends feel happy and not doing what would be best for her. She really likes Brandon but is so afraid of her friends finding out about their relationship. I understand why she might be afraid and possibly putting a thorn in her friendships but on the other hand if they’re truly her friends they would want her to be happy. So a part of me really wanted her to reveal it to her friends and see what their reactions would be. Another thing about Celeste is that she’s too naïve and trusting. For example, Dr Meadows kept badgering Celeste and trying to get proof of the werewolf on video and it’s obvious what she’s up to when she wants “video proof” but Celeste never realizes that is the case. I get that there are cliques in the school and in the town itself but that point was reiterated over and over too many times. The main conflict was pretty dismal. It was Celeste trying to keep Brandon’s secret and deflecting the attention of the community off Brandon. I didn’t feel any big tension or buildup so was disappointed that was the case. It says the hardcover version is 304 pages but I read an e-galley version on my e-reader and it seemed really short and I finished in about a day. The story wasn’t as dark as I expected to be so would probably be a good fit for younger teen readers looking for a paranormal read.
