Hunt the Moon

Who’d think to bring silver bullets to a wedding? When Isabelle “Izzy” Meyers arrives in Montana and discovers her human foster brother is marrying into the local werewolf pack, she wishes she’d brought an arsenal. Werewolves can’t be trusted, and Izzy should know…she is one.

Luke Wyland never planned on becoming an Alpha. He’s still navigating how to protect the pack from the rogue threat that’s been hunting in his territory, claiming his father as one of their victims. Yet the moment Luke lays eyes on Izzy, something primal takes root. Finding a mate who wants nothing to do with him is a complication he doesn’t need, but letting Izzy go isn’t an option.

After a childhood marred by shifter violence, Luke is everything Izzy was raised to hate. So then why does being with him feel so intensely right? With a thinning pack to defend, Luke knows what he has to do: embolden Izzy to unleash her true nature—or risk losing everything.

I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review.

I found out about this book from another author at a book convention.  I mentioned I loved paranormal and boom she hooked me up with the author info!!

Again, I am a huge paranormal girl and can be a little picky so trying a new to me author and my favorite genre could be awesome or a disaster!!  I am happy to say it was awesome!!  I men can we talk about Luke??? HELLO!!!!

Izzy is not ok with being a wolf.  She will not let her wolf come out and play.  We find out about a loss that Izzy has experienced in her life and how Izzy feels about being a shifter in general…which is not good.  Luke and his crew are investigating a bunch of murders that are taking place in town.  He is soon discovering there is a lot of deceit and politics in the world he never knew until he reached his current position of Alpha.

I loved the developing characters and learning why our main characters are the way they are.  Izzy’s life and history was a bit sad to me where as Luke, I felt his pain and hurt when discovering so much about what is happening to his people.

I look forward to the next book in the series!!
