Charlotte is moving into a new town. On the way there she and her dad camp out and Charlotte runs into Liam. Liam is cute, a bit flirty, but strange. His eyes seem to turn gold and Charlotte feels like he looks at her in a predatory way. Liam then begins stalking her, showing up at her school and house. He is creepy in an inhuman kind of way and loves to sniff Charlotte but she is drawn to him. Charlotte makes several funny references to his weird stalkerish behavior. I was glad it was addressed and had humor. I liked Charlotte and Liam but felt a little disappointed with their relationship. It was a little insta-lovey. I still enjoyed their scenes together but felt like Liam fell for Charlotte really fast. At least Charlotte agreed with me and does tell Liam that he doesn't even know her. Liam scents something different about Charlotte and wants to get to know her.
I really loved Liam's friends and the way the pack was unique. They were really funny guys and provided a lot of comic relief. I also liked that they were sweet to Charlotte. There was an interesting werewolf history in this book. I was surprised to learn about how Liam became a werewolf in a very unique way, different from most werewolf books I've read. I love werewolves especially if they are different from the average. As Liam and Charlotte grow closer, Charlotte begins to suspect Liam is still holding things back. As she investigates him, she unknowingly draws some dangerous, unwanted attention. Towards the end there was a lot of action and little twists and turns. A few secrets I had some suspicions about but it came out in a very exciting way in the end. I am excited to read the novella Alpha Moon next, which will be from Liam's POV. I would love to learn more about Liam's background. He has a very interesting family history that I was hoping to understand a little it bit more.
"Get the door."
"Have you lost it? How does he even know that I live here? I told you, total stalker."
