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.

So, I didn't love this book, but I didn't hate it either. It was a very quick read and maybe because of that I didn't feel that it had that much depth. I never really felt a connection to the characters. They were likable enough they just didn't have much to them.

I have to say, I did like the fact that although there were werewolves in this book - there weren't any vampires :)

The story line is pretty straight forward and it flows well. Overall it was pretty enjoyable. Nothing spectacular happened but it was a good story.

3.5/5 stars
