Review: "How to Howl at the Moon" (Howl at the Moon, #1) by Eli Easton

How to Howl at the Moon - Eli Easton

"I just wanted the best for my own children. But you, Lance, you’ve always needed someone special. And… I knew it was right when I met Tim. He needs you too, so much."

Lance just looked at her helplessly, unable to say anything.

"Oh, my dear son." She squeezed his hands. "He makes you dance."

This was too cute and adorable for words. As a HUGE dog lover and owner, this one ticked all my boxes. I simply couldn't put this book down; I've read it in one sitting.

 

 

I admit that I am not the biggest shifter fan out there, but this shifter story was done extremely well. And by that I mean: no stupid insta-love during the first 5 seconds when the MCs laid eyes on each other for the very first time (Ugh!), and also no awkward macho alpha (malpha?)"Mine! Mine! Mine!" possessiveness (and wow, isn't that word a whip for the retina?). It was just about a guy and a shifter dog bonding.

 

I couldn't help but ADORE how Tim bonded with the beautiful black boarder collie Chance (when he had no idea that it was actually Lance in his shifter form) and how the sincere yet lonely Sheriff Lance Beaufort slowly but surely came out of his shell, only because of how our sweet and adorable Tim was treating him in his dog form as Chance. So yeah, I was definitely feeling the characters and their chemistry; and from the get-go, I was all like: "NOW KISS!".

 

 

Like I said, the romance between Tim and Lance was totally up my alley. Which isn't really a big shocker, since this is Eli Easton after all. Her writing was flawless as usual, and the story-telling was just the right balance between fluffy and bittersweet.

 

(Tim had a history of past physical abuse by his father, but that fact never dragged the story down nor did it overshadow the story, but it was there nonetheless.)

(show spoiler)

 

This author is just a natural and damn good and talented writer. Period.

 

 

So if you've read an Eli Easton book before, then you'll know what to expect. And if you haven't, what are you waiting for?

 

I can't wait to read the rest of this series and I'm especially excited that I'm getting Roman's story next.

 

 

Highly recommended!
