Goodreads summary: 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 immediately drawn to the handsome new student. But when, after an unnerving visit with a psychic, she encounters a pack of wolves and gorgeous, enigmatic Brandon, she must discover whether his transformation is more than legend or just a trick of the shadows in the moonlight.
Her best friends may never forgive her if she gives up her perfect boyfriend, Nash, for Brandon, who's from the wrong side of town. But she can't deny her attraction or the strong pull he has on her. Brandon 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.
Pontifications....I really don't have to say much about this book to promote it. I have the complete Vampire Kisses series by this author in my library and they are a HUGE hit. The minute the kids saw this book by the same author, well you can imagine their response...give me, give me, give me!
With Vampire Kisses the title itself tells you what the books are about. Now the author takes a stab at werewolves....hence the full moon reference. The story also has the classic "us against them" stance with the rich, popular Eastsiders looking down upon the poor, lower class Westsiders with Celeste on the East and Brandon on the Westside of town. How can Celeste NOT fall for the new guy who is hot and mysterious....even if he is from the wrong side of town?
Already a huge hit in my library and if you have a crowd of paranormal romance lovers...and I'm sure you do....you need this book. The nice thing about the Vampire Kisses series and this read is that they are great for the reader her prefers a more "mild" story. Nothing scary here and the romance part is mellow too.
Appropriate for ages 12 and up.
