Hmmn I thought I was in control of who I choose to hook up with Apparently, the werewolves have set their sites on me, and I am in their spell All in the name of the full moon Hmmn.An interesting take on the werewolf legend, it gives the reader plenty of opportunities to re think the scores of paranormal romances out there, and lends a new voice to the pack.Superficially, this novel follows a traditional romance boy meets girl, boy gets girl Things are rosy until something happens Then, boy loses girl But that is where the similarities end The first difference of note is the descriptive quality that Paul s thoughts The prose is effusive, and perhaps indicative of his age There is a vast amount of time in sensory and emotional description as well as time spent in learning the history of Paul and the pack While I found it difficult to read at times as it felt like a regency romance at times and not the recent historical it is , the reader should most certainly keep going Our heroine, Susan, is much easier to read Sadly, at times, she feels like an afterthought, not like the integral part of the story that she truly is On a side note, she also takes a lot crap from Paul than I ever would But then again, I m not dating a werewolf I think It is specifically important to note the quality of the sex scenes is wonderful Descriptive, plentiful, and mostly emotional The fight scenes are also fantastic The made me very happy I was reading and not there in person.I am not sure why the book is set in 1988 Thoughts running through my head as I was reading it were that perhaps this was a reissue and really was written as a contemporary, or perhaps this was just a special time in the author s life, and that is why he chose to write in this time period It was, at times, distracting, to know the exact year the author was writing in On the plus side, he is able to reference specific songs and they are all real and start to play in your head as you read that scene A nice touch The other problem I had was in that I do not know where this story occurs I don t know if it is real or immaginary There is a line in the book that calls it an eternal city This captured my mind and kept me guessing as to which city, which county it might have been I hear eternal city and think of Paris, which it clearly was not With all of the events occurring throughout the book, one of my favorite scenes in the book was where Paul took Susan to meet his father and grandfather There is just enough mystical quality to keep you guessing Truly, I am still not sure that Grandfather can t shape shift even though Paul specifically tells Susan that werewolves can not do so.There are stories that you finish, and, well, that s it It was good and then it was over Then there are the stories and the characters that stay with you Happily, I can include Leaving the Pack in this second category It is a good thing this is so there are two stories in the trilogy a good thing I want some As I m not a fan of romance or books about werewolves, I wasn t expecting to enjoy this book very much I was in for quite a surprise, as this book was engaging, enjoyable, and a fascinating read.The story follows a young lady, Susan, and a young man, Paul They meet unexpectedly in a club and fall deeply in love Unknown to Susan though, Paul is harboring a shocking secret, that he is a werewolf As Susan and Paul s relationship continues and Paul realizes that Susan is the woman he will settle down with, there are some things to take care of within the pack of werewolves that Paul leads The story follows the two as Susan copes with her own issues and Paul takes care of things with the pack, all as they discover their growing relationship.While I m normally not a huge fan of books that feature romance, this story was tastefully done There are many romantic aspects within the book, but the author keeps the sleaze and sex to a minimum and focuses on other aspects of the relationship I really appreciated that while I was reading.The authors writing style is very pleasant to read While I can t say that this story read as if written by a truly experienced author there were a few parts that didn t quite flow right , for the most part the writing was smooth and easy to read I wasn t distracted by any quirks that the authors writing style contained and didn t find many faults within the writing at all.In the end, I truly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading I would definitely recommend this book to those who are interested in books about werewolves or tasteful romances.
