Crescent Moon Series
by Savannah Stuart, Katie Reus
When she ran, she didn’t think he’d follow…
Pack princess Alyssa Clare was trying to come up with ways to get out of her arranged mating to alpha wolf Reece O’Shea—until she meets the powerful male. After getting to know him, mating doesn’t seem like such a bad idea anymore. But when he makes it clear she’s just a business arrangement for him and his pack, she calls off the mating and heads south to stay with a friend to lick her wounds in private.
But he’s not willing to let her go without a fight.
Reece can’t let Alyssa go, not when he’s completely fallen for the sweet, sexy female. He doesn’t care about the arranged mating deal, he just wants her and has no idea why she ran. To win her back he infiltrates another alpha’s territory, knowing it could mean his death. Luckily Grant Kincaid allows him in his domain—as long as Alyssa is okay with it. Convincing her that she’s all he wants is a bigger challenge than he imagined. But he’s not giving up, because he knows she’s the one he’s meant to be with forever.
I have not read anything in this series so I have nothing else to base this story on but what I have been given is great. The characters are fully developed as is the story and I didn’t feel like any of it is incomplete or that it needs previous stories to get the full depth.
I really liked Alyssa and I understand why she ran. New feelings have enough volatility so adding in a misunderstanding can easily throw things into a whirlwind. And while that could be a tired, overused plot I think that here it works. One of the reasons is that there is something very appealing about Reece as he tries to win her back. Maybe it is the added paranormal parts that keep it going, although that could be easily overdone as well, but whatever it is I really enjoyed it.
Although the Were part is important, at the core it is a story of a man who is trying to win back the woman he loves. It’s sweet and hot and fun. And I’m definitely interested in seeing where else this world goes.
