Moonlight by Rachel Hawhorne


I see him and know what this turmoil inside of me means: He's the one. My forever.

Kayla is the nature lover, the all-American beauty who can't understand why she's so drawn to distant, brooding Lucas. Adopted as a young child, she has no way of knowing that she's inherited a terrifying—and thrilling—gene that will change her life forever.

Lucas is dangerous, gorgeous . . . and a werewolf. As leader of the Dark Guardians, shape-shifters who gather deep within the state park, he has sworn to protect his pack. But when Lucas finds his true soul mate, his love could put them all in harm's way.

As Lucas and Kayla struggle with their feelings for each other, a greater danger lurks: Humans have discovered the Dark Guardians and are planning their destruction. Kayla must choose between the life she knows and the love she feels certain is her destiny.


Moonlight by Rachel Hawthorne, in my view, was an okay book. While I really love Rachel Hawthorne (I've read all of her books! :D) I thought this book was slow at the beginning, then sped up drastically at the end. I felt that the book could have used a few more details. But besides the that, the book was great. It kept me entertained throughout, and I found that no matter what I've heard some of my friends say, this book was not the "same thing" as Twilight or other paranormal books that have werewolves. While I was reading Moonlight, I thought about Moonlight and only that. Twilight did not cross my mind while reading it, but I must say that it did when I first heard of the book. But so what? That's what attracted me to it in the first place. Another thing I loved about this book was the romance. While I did think that Lucas and Kayla did fall for each other a little too fast, I understood why and really felt the connection between them. All I have to say is , I'll be looking forward to reading the next book in the series :]


I thought this cover was really pretty, but the one thing that bothered me throughout the book was that I just could not picture Kayla looking like that. Even after staring hard at the cover and picturing her in my mind, I could not do it. I somehow pictured Kayla more soft looking instead of with those high cheekbones and skinny face. Was it just me? Other than that, I really liked the cover. What I digged the most was the way they made it look light the moonlight was shining down on her. It's just really beautiful.

Originality- 6/10
Cover- 9/10
