Synopsis

Once in a blue moon…
For Rafer Breaux, life in the Louisiana Bayou is harsh, violent—and deeply sensual. The Cajun werewolf lives for his Pack and he’ll do whatever it takes to keep his brothers safe. The longer a wolf lives without a mate, the harder it becomes for that wolf to shift back. To remember that he is a man—and not a monster. And those mates can only be found during a blue moon. When a blue moon finally rises, Rafer will need every weapon in his sensual arsenal to tempt one special woman into his arms and the heart of the Pack.

The Pack hunts for mates
Fighting to keep her family farm, Lark Andrews isn’t looking for love. Even if the very sexy Breaux brothers make her dream of hot bayou nights spent in their arms. When the blue moon leads Rafer to her door, however, Rafer has her rethinking her position on all work and no play. Now, the bayou nights are heating up as Rafer fights to convince her, one sensual touch at a time, to give love and passion a chance. But Rafer isn’t a one wolf deal. Is there room in Lark’s heart—and bed—for Rafer and his Pack?

Review

When I first began this book I honestly wasn’t really feeling it all that much. Now having had read it, I still don’t think I’m completely feeling it.

The whole blue moon thing is very different from most werewolf books I’ve read. As they normally center around the full moon or just no moon at all. So already Marsh has set Tempted By The Pack apart from similar books in her genre. Other than  the use of the blue moon, the dynamic that the story’s romance had was different too. Every male in the pack had to have a mate, whether it was a shared mate within the pack or not, or else they would eventually succumb to their wolves and lose all of their humanity.

I liked that it was different from what I was used to, but there were things throughout the book the didn’t make sense. I’m not going to say specifics, because spoilers are evil, but I will say the dynamic of the romance was so annoying. Plus it didn’t make a lot of sense towards the ending. The fight scene was just ok, and the way the author constructed the vampire element was strange to me. I was so for a werewolf book set in the bayou, but it just didn’t live up to what I was expecting.

The characters for me were eh. Like I liked them, but they weren’t the best in my opinion. That’s really how I felt about the whole book. I liked it, just not that much.

There were also inconsistencies in the book.

Now I also want to say that I’m not trying to bash this book or the author. I’m just saying it wasn’t for me, but you may like it in ways I didn’t.

I’m going to give this book 2 out of 5 stars. It hurts me to do that, because I feel like this book had a lot of potential.
