The Mayfair Moon by J.A. Redmersik

Synopsis (from goodreads.com):
After a nightmarish encounter with a werewolf, seventeen-year-old Adria Dawson loses her sister, but gains the love of a mysterious young man and his legendary family.

Strange and tragic things begin to happen in the small town of Hallowell, Maine: residents come down with an unexplainable ‘illness’ and some disappear. In the midst of everything, Isaac Mayfair is adamant about keeping Adria safe, even from her sister whom he has warned her to stay away from.

As unspeakable secrets unfold all around Adria, impossible choices become hers to bear. Ultimately, no matter what path she takes, her life and the lives of those she loves will be in peril. As she learns about the werewolf world she also learns why her place in it will change the destinies of many.

Jillian’s Review:

I was looking forward to reading this novel after reading some raving reviews but it turned out to be just your run-of-the-mill teenager werewolf novel. It’s not especially well written and very predictable.

The romantic couple is once again drawn to each other because of physical attraction, they don’t get to know each other because they’re madly in love, and once again, there is supposed to be more to their relationship that just doesn’t translate to the reader.

I did like the guy, but I have to admit, but getting tired of the dark, brooding, over-protective, and almost psychotically stalkerish, hero. Why oh why do they all have to brood?

On the plus side, it was pretty clean. No sex and I don’t remember much swearing if any.

If you're in need of a were’ fix read the MUCH better written Shiver instead.
