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.
REVIEW: Once In A Full Moon is the first book of Ellen Schreiber i'd read. And i'm pretty happy i choose to read it. Her writing is captivating and i was so into it that it took me less than a day to finish it. I felt tired read in front of the computer but i couldn't leave it. I doubt i would have managed to sleep if i stopped it.
The whole scenery is dark and i loved it. All the scenes in the forest felt like real. I was totally in another world and i couldn't feel anything around me. I was just there. I was Celeste. It's also mysterious and you can't guess many things. The feelings you have ara exactly what Celeste feels. Even as a reader, you do the same thoughts with her.
It's mainly a paranormal romance book but it doesn't get you into from the first chapters. It let you live a little in Celeste's world, to learn her friends, her town, the cliques and when everything is explained enough, the most interesting things starts! The way the werewolf is portrayed is acceptable for me. Many books have the person transform into a wolf but i prefer something more humanoid.
As for the characters, they are perfectly created. You learn everything it's necessery for them so whatever happens seems normal. Even Celeste's friends became your friends in a way. Like you know them for years. My favorite char, was Celeste. For those who read my reviews before i know it's a surprise. I usually dislike the heroines. But i like her. She is not annoying, not selfish, not bitchy...a normal girl.
I want to tell much more but i'm afraid i will start spoiling so...
Conclusion, i recommend the book to all the paranormal romance fans out there! I loved it and i can't wait for the next! The end surprised me and i'm dying to know what will happen next....
