My Rating 4 stars
I've loved him forever, but he can never be mine.
BRITTANY is determined to prove herself to the Dark Guardians. And yet she's been keeping a devastating secret: She hasn't experienced any of the intense, early signs of change that mark a Dark Guardian's transformation. The only intense feelings she has are for Connor—and she's kept that a secret, too. But she knows she'll never truly have Connor's love if she's not a Shifter like him.
At the first full moon after her birthday, her greatest fear is realized: She doesn't transform. Brittany is so desperate to become a wolf that she'll go to extremes she never thought possible . . . and put all the Dark Guardians in incredible danger.
This is the third book, following Brittany as the story continues. The Dark Guardians still have Bio-Chrome to worry about but it's the last thing Brittany can think about. Her first full moon is approaching and she hasn't find a mate yet. No one seems intersted in her and the guy she loves has his own issues to solve.
Since no guy is steeping forward to help her with her first transformation and Connor isn't intersted in her, she decides to take the leap alone. She will stand under the moon alone. Everything good so far unlesss you count the fact that she might die. If she goes through it alone big chances are, she dies.
Her first full moon comes and goes and she stays the same. She doesn't transform. Devastated and heart broken she returns to Wolford were everyone thinks she survived her first transformation. She finds it hard to tell the truth and believes that if the others find out, she'll be evicted out of their world and she doesn't want that.
Connor finally notices her and things steam up a bit between them but Bio-Chrome comes in. Although Brittany hates them for what they're doing to the Shifters she can't refuse to acknowledge what they do.
She will risk everything for what she wants but that means risking Connor's life and his love not to mention the rest of the shifters.
The story develops quickly and we find Brittany pretending what she's not. She finds it hard especially when Connor finally shows interest in her but she knows he deserves more than her, a real shifter not a static.
I enjoyed this story but it lacked something. It seemed rushed and even though I wanted to, I wasn't convinced that Connor had gotten over Lindsey so quickly and now wanted Brittany. Hard to believe if you think what she did to him, which wasn't fair.
Overall I would recommend it to read it, especially if you have read the previous books.
