Under a Full Moon by Michelle Frost & Sammi Cee
Slate Mountain Wolf Pack #1
LGBTQ+ Paranormal Romance
Under the guise of a motorcycle gang, werewolf Alpha Ethan Slate and his pack, protect their small town of Slate Mountain. When Brice Wallace returns home from college, Ethan immediately recognizes the man as his mate. But Brice’s father, the uptight mayor, has plans for the town and he doesn’t want Brice anywhere near Ethan.
Under a Full Moon was a quick and easy read and while I found it enjoyable in the moment, it was a bit forgettable. I did like both Brice and Ethan’s characters, they fall in love quickly but they’re really sweet together. Ethan in particular comes across as large and intimidating but he’s actually a really big marshmallow when it comes to his mate. There’s very minimal angst between our couple; even when Brice finds out that Ethan is a werewolf, he’s remarkably calm about it. I personally would have liked a bit more tension in Brice and Ethan’s relationship because everything just happened really easily for them.
I liked the town of Slate Mountain and the side characters found in Ethan’s pack, so I do plan to read more of the series. I’m also curious to read more about the Youth Center and how Ethan plans to bring peace back to his beloved town. While Ethan and Brice’s story ends in a HEA, the story overall has a lot of things left unfinished and we still don’t really know what’s going on in the town.
3 stars – it was good
As President of the Slate Mountain Wolf Pack Motorcycle Club, being Alpha to a pack of wolves was something I was born to do. Same with riding a motorcycle and standing vigilant against all threats to our little mountain town—even when those threats come from within. Most of the humans here don’t know what we are. They only see tough men on bikes with leather vests, marking us as outlaws. The facade keeps our secret and the town of Slate Mountain safe. When my mate shows up with the summer breeze, all seems right with the world, until trouble stirs and I have to use all my resources as a man and wolf to protect him and the town we both love.
As the mayor’s son, coming home after graduating from college is an eye opening experience. I’d forgotten how small town politics could swallow people whole and point men down paths of greed. Now that my eyes have been opened, there’s no going back to the blissful ignorance of before. When I meet Ethan, I know he’s the one for me. Being with Ethan, leads me further away from my father’s plans and deeper into the secrets of Slate Mountain even as it puts me directly into the path of the newest threat to our sleepy little town.
Welcome to Slate Mountain where magic and motorcycles roam the streets, love flows as pure as mountain spring water, and the wolves are always guarding the door.
