Book Blurb : Taken From Goodreads

Haunted by an animal attack, seventeen year old Charlotte feels she is being followed. When she runs into a mysterious boy while camping, she’s afraid. Nothing seems right about him. Despite trying to stay away, there is an unmistakable draw to be near him. Even his scent smells familiar. But the closer she gets, the faster the secrets begin to unravel. Not only is he not human, he may have a link to her past. When Charlotte finds out someone wants her dead, she is torn between love and fear. Can she trust him to keep her safe?

BOOK REVIEW by Michelle :

Rachel Deagan has written a great werewolf story. I really enjoyed  all her characters, both main and subcharacters.

Liam , the male lead, I really liked him. I loved the way he would put his head on the side, very animalistic. It is pretty clear to the reader what Liam and his buddies are early into the story. I enjoyed the playfulness of Byron, the twins Flynt and Eldridge and the little guy, Steve. I think the mystery lies in Charlotte. Rachel has written her tale with a little bit of a twist and I liked it.

Charlotte and her father are moving to Maplefield. We don't meet Charlotte's mum in this book we only meet her father who is now Maplefield's newest doctor. 

Charlotte doesn't know who to trust, she wants to trust Liam, the guy she met at the campsite she stayed, with her father , but there are some missing pieces, so she and Ty go all Nancy Drew in their endeavour to find some answers. Charlotte can't shake feeling watched...... paranoia? 

Taylor Jacobs aka Ty is a great new bff to Charlotte. Charlotte likes to keep to herself , she is still reliving in her mind an attack by a dog  who bit her when she was five. Ty is good for Charlotte, but I was intrigued by Ty's necklace. 

Charlotte has a great sense of smell and some things just aren't adding up, especially when Liam is around. Liam is a gorgeous , caring guy who has this immediate attraction to Charlotte. I think even he was trying to make sense of it. Why did he feel so drawn to her? Charlotte was sending mixed signals to him and she didn't even  know it.

I am intrigued to see where Rachel takes this series. Liam and his pack are a great bunch of characters and they all love Charlotte. Rachel has definitely ended this book with a whole new direction .

I enjoyed ALL the character's , I haven't mentioned them, for that would be spoiling, but I am interested to read more about a certain character.

EXCERPT

“Here it is,” I said. “This is the book.”

“What book?” a male voice said.

My head shot up. Prickles of goose bumps rose on the back of my neck as I met an intense blue gaze bearing down at me. He stood, leaning on the door jam, in a way that oddly reminded me of Liam. He appeared about the same age and build too, but instead of Liam’s ashy blond hair, he had auburn.

It took a moment for my mind to connect with my body, and I shoved the book behind my back “What are you doing here?” I asked, wincing at how stupid that sounded.

The corner of his mouth lifted into a grin. “I should be asking you that,” he said. “You’re breaking and entering. Perhaps I should call the cops.” He reached into his back pocket, pulling out his cell phone.

“No, no,” I said, taking a step towards him. He seemed pleased by my newfound hysteria, and put the phone away.

“Why are you here?” he asked, again. His focus flicked to Ty, and then back at me. Hands in his pockets, he pushed himself up off the door jam, moving towards me. The muscles of his shoulders flexed taut under his thin t-shirt and he rolled them, tilting his head to the side.

“She’s friends with Liam,” Ty said.

Inside I winced with horror. Liam didn’t want people to know I knew about him. He said it was dangerous. My chest felt constricted. His face looked like stone.

“What’s with the book?” he asked.

“It…it’s nothing,” I said. My fingers clutched the leather so hard I could feel the painful pinch of my nails biting into its flesh.

He took another step towards me. “Then what’s behind your back?”

I contemplated denying the fact that I held it there, but it seemed pointless. “Just something for a homework assignment that Liam was helping me with.” I prayed I didn’t look as sickly as I felt.

“I wasn’t aware Liam went to school,” he said. A coy smile lifted to his mouth.

“Oh, he doesn’t. It was for me. I go to school. He just said I could borrow it.” I needed to shut up. Seriously. A pin could have dropped and I would have screamed. Where was Ty?

“Can I see it?” he asked.

“No.” I swallowed hard.

“Why not?”

My heart pounded in my ears. “Because it’s not yours.”

    1. Hi Braine,

      Yes it is a werewolf book....I have read Shiver and not like Shiver. I an see other influences in this book, but at the same nice twists that move away from that:D
