I thought this was a really cute book on werewolf prejudice. It’s your average werewolf story but with a family twist.
What I like most was the family dynamic about it. For generations this family has hunted down werewolf with the belief that once you become a werewolf you lose all of your self. Little did they know that a family member was infected with werewolf blood and is living as a werewolf now. I like how the family was shocked. At this little piece of information really made the book even better. You saw the family, mostly the parents just in shocked an scared. They had no idea how to react or do. It was pretty funny.
The storyline I think could have been better. It wasn’t what I expected. I would have wanted a lot more family info on the werewolf hunting and how one of the brother came infected and was living as a werewolf. I though with the way Brianna was infected was a little on the down side. I wanted more umph.
The love interest on the other hand was fast. They fell for each other and pretty much made each other complete. I like how Connor stuck by Brianna side and help her out. For a moment there, I thought there would be drama since Evan was a little, um…..flirty with her.
In the end, the family over came their prejudice and decided to try something out new. I like that as a family that they worked together and not bring each other down. I really enjoyed seeing them change their was and accept the brother as a werewolf. Great book!
I give it 4 BITES!
