Review:
Full Moon wasn't as big of a hit for me as Moonlight was. I'm not sure if it's a change in my reading opinion or that this story was lacking what the other had.

Lindsey's voice was somewhat annoying to read. The repetition of her thoughts throughout the book was tiring; not much variety. Her character fell completely flat for me, as did many of the secondary characters.

In the end, everything worked out a bit too perfectly. Which is a little obnoxious to me... in real life, is everything perfect? Is everyone happy? Not really...

But the truth is, this book is still simply a fun read. It's dramatic, romantic, and quick to read. This series is something to check out when you're in the mood for a lighthearted, enjoyable book.
