My Cover Blurb: "Perfect Summer Time Story"


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 step-mother 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

My Thoughts:

A cute fun summer read. Nice and short, I find I almost always get some enjoyment out of a novel like this as long as it's kept short and light and not too much depth. Kind of gave me a more middle grade feel than YA. As far as werewolf action, it was minimal. This was more about Shelby coming into her own than about a love story. I thought the ending was sweet and fit well, it is open for a sequel, but enough ends were tide that I would consider it a stand alone. Not sure if I'll pick up more in this series because I didn't feel the need to read more of Shelby once I was done, but I may change my mind one day.

Reminded me of the Dark Guardian novels by Rachel Hawthorne and would recommend to anyone who read these, or someone who's looking for a book to while away a summer afternoon.
