Crave the Moon - Book Review by Voodoo Bride

Crave The Moon (Nightcreature #11)
by Lori Handeland

What is it about:
Gina O’Neill will do anything to hold on to her beloved ranch that has been in her family for generations. Enter Mateo Mecate, an archeologist whose greatest wish is to dig there. Prepared to despise Matt—and to thwart his agenda—Gina cannot deny the shocking desire she feels for him.

Matt believes that the Nahua Springs Ranch holds an important key to Aztec history—one that will restore his standing in the archeological community. But he never expects to go head-to-head with the maddeningly sensuous owner, Gina. The ranch seems to have cast a spell on them both…

When Gina and Matt delve into the secrets of this ancient place, they awaken something unspeakably evil—a shapeshifter who is centuries old. A werewolf with vengeance on its mind. A sorcerer of incredible power. Can Gina and Matt defeat this enemy—even as their conflicts deepen…and their attraction grows more dangerous?

What did Voodoo Bride think of it:
I was disappointed by this book.

Having read 'Blue Moon', the first book in this series, I expected a Paranormal Romance with werewolves, but instead this book is practically a contemporary romance with some werewolves thrown in as an afterthought.

I didn't particularly warm up to Gina and Matt as well, the attraction between them was too sudden and unbelievable and their personalities were a bit flat. The other characters were rather stereotypical and the one I liked the most turned out to be a bad guy (surprise, surprise, I do know how to pick them).

That I finished this book was because I kept hoping the story would pick up as soon as the werewolf was introduced, but when this finally happened it didn't manage to save the book for me, being a case of too little, too late.

I'm not sure if I will read more books in this series, because as much as I liked 'Blue Moon' I do not look forward to another flop like 'Crave the Moon'. This is probably a nice read if you're more into contemporary romance, but for me it didn't work.

Why should you read it:
It might be a nice read for people who like 'Paranormal Romance Light'.
