Full Moon - Rachel Hawthorne

I may be promised to another...
but thoughts of Rafe consume me.
I don't know how much longer I can resist.

LINDSEY is wild and reckless, a natural rebel--maybe because her entire life was laid out for her even before she was born. Her parents are among the most powerful members of the Dark Guardians, an ancient tribe of werewolves, and they arranged Lindsey's betrothal to Connor long ago. The next full moon is coming all too soon, and then her commitment to Connor will be final--no turning back. She should be happy . . . so why can't she stop thinking about gorgeous, brooding Rafe?
When a dangerous threat on the pack escalates, so do tensions between Connor and Rafe. A fight over Lindsey is imminent, but will it be to the death?

Title: Full Moon
Genre: Young Adult, Werewolves,
Publisher: HarperTeen (An Imprint of HarperCollins Publishers)
My Rating: 3/5

I find that this series tends to be light and fluffy, there isn't any deep thought required. It was an engaging story though at times I could have throttled the main character as she continually deliberated over who she needed to choose to bond with, and she couldn't decide therefore prolonging the agony for everyone involved. On the other hand, I can commiserate with her as it was a big decision for her to make. It certainly wasn't easy to choose between the two as she loved them both for different reasons. As for the sub-story, I find it somewhat lacking. There was always the threat of something happening, but nothing really occurred until the middle of the book. Even at that, it was more like something happened quickly, and 20 pages later everything was resolved as much as it could be for this book. The ending definitely leaves a hook for the next book though, and maybe things will be fleshed out more with the group that has been after them throughout the series. All in all, not something special, but it is definitely good for a quick read.

This book counts toward the 2010 100+ Reading Challenge Hosted over at J. Kaye's/Home Girl's book blog.
