SYNOPSIS

Moonlight can totally change your life.

And it all starts so simply.

You. Him.

The moon.

You’re toast.

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 stepmother 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 REVIEW. BEWARE, POSSIBLE SPOILERS.

Please note the heavy underlying sarcasm of that gif. Let’s proceed.

After her mother dies (writers hate parents, don’t they), Shelby’s ultra-rich father marries a silicone valley step monster whose one purpose in life is to get free breast enhancement and send Shelby’s annoying tush as far away as she possibly can.

After being caught kissing some random kid on her lawn, Shelby is sent to brat camp in the middle of nowhere with a bunch of other snobby rich kids and the son of a rock star. Did I mention he’s British? He’s a perfectly nice kid, his father’s assistant sent him there. To brat camp. And his father has no idea. I wonder how that didn’t reach his attention, especially considering he’s a werewolf!

So, locked up in brat camp, Shelby and Austin must find a way to get his drugs back to keep him from turning into a flea bitten hungry mutt on the full moon, or he has to escape before he hurts someone.

Easier said than done. The ending is anti-climatic, which is to be expected because there was never much build up. I would’ve preferred my alternate ending – Austin wolfing out and eating everyone.

Pros.

  • Well, there were none, aside that I am thankful I didn’t pay real money for this, I won a bid on Listia.
  •  And that it was short, and SHORTNESS being a pro? You know that’s bad.

Cons.

  • Why does every male character in the history of ever have a British accent? Okay, I know I’ve done it in one of my stories, but it was set in England. I’m justified, right?
  • You want to identify with the main character. The only thing I identify with Shelby is with her parents decision of sending her to brat camp. I was hoping she’d get eaten, she’s vastly annoying.
  • Characters lack any depth whatsoever.
  • I wanted bears to attack and eat everyone.

Meh. That’s my response. I was bored and the only appealing thing whatsoever was the cover. I wouldn’t recommend this, unless you’re suffering a bout of insomnia.
