"Moon Kissed" [Wicked Games Series, Book 2] by Michele Hauf

What was I thinking? : This novel was an additional novel included as a bonus read when I got "Forever Werewolf," and I thought I'd give it a try.

Author's Book Description : A fine line between fear and desire...

Escaping from bloodthirsty vampires, Belladonna Reynolds ran straight into the arms of a werewolf. As a man, Severo drew her in with his dark good looks; as a beast he astounded her with his insatiable sensual appetite. Whether afraid or aroused, Bella fled to his lair when threatened by an evil monster of the night....


And between hatred and love...

Severo tried to keep Bella—his mate—safe from the vampiress who held a malicious desire for revenge against him—but he alone wasn’t enough. How could he desire the very thing he’d spent his life destroying? And even if he did, what would the werewolf do to Bella on the next full moon?

My Book Review : 1 out of 5 stars. Okay I'll admit I really didn't give this novel a fair chance but I just couldn't get into it, which is why I only read up to Chapter 5. I found Bella whiny and not willing to adapt that well, even though I'm hoping that she changes for the better throughout the book. The parts that I have read of this novel I couldn't get a good read on Severo. Basically, I found that the beginning and the parts I did read were very slow and it was hard to like.

Sorry, I really can't say if I recommend it or not, yet I wouldn't read it again. Therefore, if you read it I hope you'll like it more than I did!!

- On a side note -
The edition of "Forever Werewolf" that I read included a full copy of "Moon Kissed." To read my review for "Forever Werewolf," click here.

Book Teaser(s) :
So the man did have a soul. Maybe.
She flat-out asked him. "Do you have a soul?"
"That's an odd question."
"No more off than your being a werewolf."
"Perhaps it is you, a human, who is the odd one. Yes, I do have a soul." ~ within Chapter 4
