Okay

At first I thought this was going to be another Twilight copycat, what with the werewolves and all but it is actually not bad at all. Okay at times I felt that it was a badly written version of Twilight sure, but if you give it a chance there is a nice story there.

I do like the narrative style with one chapter from Grace and the next from Sam. That style has always appealed to me in a book. Aside from that the wolves are described fantastically and you really get the feel for the woods and the surrounding area. You actually feel that the woods are an extra character in the book as they are so important to the story.

Some parts are cringeworthy in their cliche's but it's hard to write a romance these days without a werewolf popping up somewhere isn't it?! If you try to look on it as sweet instead of sickening you'll be fine! No really if you enjoyed Twilight you'll probably adore this. If you disliked Twilight avoid this like the plague because there is no doubt in my mind you will hate this.
