Once in a Full Moon by Ellen Schreiber

Title: Once in a Full Moon
Author: Ellen Schreiber
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Release: December 28, 2010
Pages: 304
Series: Full Moon #1
Synopsis:
Beware of a kiss under the full moon. It will change your life forever.

Celeste Parker is used to hearing scary stories about werewolves—Legend's Run is famous for them. She's used to everything in the small town until Brandon Maddox moves to Legend's Run and Celeste finds herself immediately drawn to the handsome new student. But when, after an unnerving visit with a psychic, she encounters a pack of wolves and gorgeous, enigmatic Brandon, she must discover whether his transformation is more than legend or just a trick of the shadows in the moonlight.

Her best friends may never forgive her if she gives up her perfect boyfriend, Nash, for Brandon, who's from the wrong side of town. But she can't deny her attraction or the strong pull he has on her. Brandon may be Celeste's hero, or he may be the most dangerous creature she could encounter in the woods of Legend's Run.

Psychic predictions, generations-old secrets, a town divided, and the possibility of falling in love with a hot and heroic werewolf are the perfect formula for what happens . . . once in a full moon.

Review:
I have been putting off reviewing Once in a Full Moon for a week, for the simple reason that I really did not care for it. I got this one out from the library not long ago and dove right in, believing it was going to be completely different than it was. I quickly got a found out it was nothing like I thought it would be like, and I found myself a little disappointed with this book. To start off, I found the storyline predictable: I guessed the gist of what was going to happen during the first chapter. The writing wasn't bad, though I did find it very simple, not bad but simple. The characters are where things went downhill for me. I didn't care for the protagonist, Celeste, at all. At times she came off as trying to be uber-perfect all the time. The two main guys in the story were Brandon and Nash. Brandon was the mysterious new guy and Nash was the seemingly perfect boyfriend. I found Nash to be interesting later on in the book when he pulls some twists in the plot line. Brandon on the other hand, I found to be bland. There was nothing wrong with him, he was a good guy, he just wasn't too exciting. I will probably give the series a second shot when the sequel comes out, but until then this book gets a 3/5 to me. I love the cover! It's dark but it also has hints of colour in the title, the shadows on the model, in the model's hair, and in her eyes. It is a very eye grabbing cover.
