  • Moonstruck: Diablo Lake by Lauren Dane

    3.25 stars-- MOONSTRUCK is the first installment in Lauren Dane’s contemporary, adult DIABLO LAKE paranormal, romance series focusing on the small town of Diablo Lake, Washington. This is wolf Patron (pack alpha) and town police officer Jace Dooley, and witch Katie Faith Grady’s story line. Told from dual third person perspectives (Jace and Katie) MOONSTRUCK focuses on the friends to lovers, second chance romance between police officer, wolf shifter Jace Dooley, and Katie Faith-a witch who has yet to come into her true powers. Several years earlier our heroine ran from Diablo Lake following the disaster that was to be her wedding. Stood up at the altar, Katie found herself in Chattanooga until present day when she was called home following her father’s heart attack. With her return comes ill-feelings from the man who stood her up, and even darker threats from his extended family. Enter Jace Dooley, the werewolf who calls to Katie’s heart, and the man who would one day lead the werewolf pack. Katie and Jace have danced around one another for years, but Jace’s quick exit from town years before found our heroine looking elsewhere for love and attention. The relationship between Katie and Jace is one of immediate attraction; they have always found a kindred spirit with one another and Jace knows that Katie is his mate-the one. There is some definite sexual chemistry and tension between our leading couple. The $ex scenes are intimate and provocative without the over the top graphic text or imagery. MOONSTRUCK is a story about family and friendship; magic and power; betrayal and revenge. There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including two werewolf packs, and a ‘coven’ of witches whose powers are tested with the impending threats against one of their own. Because MOONSTRUCK is the introductory story line in the series, there is a large amount of information and backstory revealed, as well as the numerous characters and potential problems that comes with warring packs and magical powers-very little is resolved by the end of the first story. The premise is entertaining; the characters are animated and magical; the romance is passionate. I am looking forward to the second book-PROTECTED –coming in October 2016.

  • An All Right Read.

    Overall, it was an entertaining read. That is to say, the story was interesting albeit a little hurried in the introduction. I didn't find it amazing, by any means, but it was an easy read. I feel like there wasn't enough attention on their own interactions, with much of the focus being on the effects of their relationship on the town. It needs more character building between the two in the confines of their home, or on a date, or something similar, to truly foster that romance they so clearly have. Not to mention, they are incredibly vanilla. Considering the underlying magic and/or the fact that he's a werewolf, I didn't think their coupling would be so basic. My only other issue is the way she changes perspective with no warning or page breaks. One second, you're hearing Katie Faith's thoughts on a topic, and then suddenly, you're hearing what Jace thinks of her reaction to a situation. And then right back to Katie Faith. More times than I'd like, I found myself pausing to think "wait, who's talking now?"

    Thanks for your feedback!
