Rachel Hawthorne; Moonlight: Dark Guardian series

Reading level: Young Adult

Paperback: 272 pages
Publisher: HarperTeen (March 3, 2009)

Synopsis:
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.


My Review
Decent is a word that wraps this book up. I can’t say it was a great book but I can’t say it was a terrible read. The synopsis pretty much sums up MOST of the book. There is a twist to the book. It was short and an easy read. The characters were not one-dimensional yet they were not fully developed either. The writing was simplistic yet it kept me entertained with the plot. This book didn’t leave me much to say, like I said the synopsis sums it up pretty good. 
I say check the book out on a day you may be bored or take it with you while waiting at your doctor’s office. It’s a quick enough read.

a great, honest review...I don't think this will be in my to-read pile unless I suddenly run out of books to read in the near future...aka it's not going to happen!

Great review. I guess decent is better than horrible. At least it was quick!

Nice review- I'm a sucker for a shapeshifter story so I'll have to pick this one up.
