REVIEW: Once In a Full Moon by Ellen Schreiber

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.

Warning: this will be a fairly short review, seeing as this was a fairly short book and it wasn't all that great or all that terrible. Probably only a few paragraphs, since I don't have much to say.

First off, I hated Celeste's best friends. They were both stupid and ditzy and shallow stereotypes. They sucked. So did her original boyfriend, Nash. In fact, there wasn't a single Eastsider that I liked, besides, of course, the main character Celeste. By the way, I hate that name.

The plot seemed kind of rushed and there were a few gaping holes, but it wasn't altogether unpleasant. It had its redeeming qualities, and I liked the love interest, Brandon.

Overall, Once In a Full Moon was a quick, light read that didn't really tip the scale one way or the other. I'll probably read the second book, but I'm not going to be rushing out to get it. This series seems fairly similar to the Vampires Kisses series, so fans of that will probably enjoy it.

Thanks for the review. I haven't read this one yet but I think I'll probably pick it up. Too bad her friends were so terrible.

Anonymous, I didn't say that it was a bad book, I said that I neither liked, nor disliked it. It just wasn't really my thing. Also, since whether or not a book is good is a matter of personal opinion, it is impossible for me to lie about it.

I'm glad you liked the book, though I don't agree with your comment.
