Moonlight >> Book Review

Dark Guardian #1: Moonlight
Moonlight by Rachel Hawthorne 
Dark Guardians, Book 1
paperback pages: 263
My Rating 3 stars

I see him and know what this turmoil inside 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 in harms'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
An interesting story, that begins with this first book in the Dark Guardians series. I was always a vampire fun but these books made me see werewolves with another eye. Of course I will always have a soft spot for vampires but this book was plain wonderful in a kind of cheesy and fairytale kind of way. 

It's basically a romance series with a little action going on. It's all about love, destiny and forever. Werewolves mark their mates with a tattoo on their shoulders and if a guy doesn’t end up with the girl they are destine for, they end up alone forever. There is a special connection between male and female that only exists between werewolves making their love true and last forever.

It sounds cheesy and it felt like it, since the author introduces us to this world through Kayla's eyes really fast. She works at the park, where her real parents died, for the summer in order to get the traumatic experience she had when she was little, over. There she meets the others and among them Lucas that scares her and attracts her at the same time. 

On the verge of a crazy scientist who wants to capture them, she discovers that werewolves are real and she is one of them. And if she doesn't pick Lucas as her mate till the first full moon after her 17th birthday-to help her through her transformation-she might even die.

Loved the book! I will definitely read the rest of them. There are 4 books in total so far. It a perfect book for those that are hungry for some cheesy love-for-ever story.
