Synopsis (Found on

Moonlight can totally change your life.

And it all starts so simply.

You. Him.

The moon.

You're toast.

Okay, so maybe Shelby has made a few mistakes with boys lately (how was she supposed to know Wes had "borrowed" that Porsche?). But her stepmother totally overreacts when she catches Shelby in a post-curfew kiss with a hot senior: Suddenly Shelby's summer plans are on the shelf, and she's being packed off to brat camp. It's good-bye, prom dress; hello, hiking boots.

Things start looking up, though, when Shelby meets fellow camper (and son of a rock star) Austin Bridges III. But soon she realizes there's more to Austin than crush material--his family has a dark secret, and he wants Shelby's help guarding it. Shelby knows that she really shouldn't be getting tangled up with another bad boy . . . but who is she to turn her back on a guy in need, especially such a good-looking one? One thing's for sure: That pesky full moon is about to get her into trouble all over again.

My Review:

Awesome book. The book was an easy light read. There was not a lot of heavy werewolf lore which I liked. There was also not any insta-love in the book which was a great break from that. Shelby actually had second thoughts about Austin (the werewolf) and in the end of the book they really liked each other, not love (yet). I also liked how Shelby and Austin interacted with each other- you can tell there was mutual attraction but I liked how they didn't kiss or were making out in every page. The first time they kiss is on the second to last page of the book which I thought was a perfect ending. 

Throughout the story you could see Shelby growing as a character. Instead of making rash stupid decisions that caused her parents to send her to the camp, throughout the book we see her thinking more about what she should do and choose accordingly (especially when it came to Austin). 

I also liked Austin's character. He wasn't like the typical bad boy. He was senstitve, caring and kind. His British accent wasn't bad either. I liked how he saved Shelby in his wolf form and it was sweet that he chose to go to her new camp to be with her. 

One thing I wonder about is the rash/scratch on Shelby's arm at the end of the story. The rash/scratch wouldn't go away or heal. Not much was said about it and I guess the author left the interpretation of it up to the reader. You could think it was a just a scratch or a scratch that will change Shelby into a werewolf. I choose the werewolf scratch lol!
