Three Months To Change Review


Three Months to ChangeLenora was changing—not in any frightening way. At least, not at first. There was the intense ability to shield herself from abuse that was very empowering. But her other senses had become heightened as well, and that’s when she’d begun seeing scenes from the past and smoky dark mists in her home. Meeting Frankie had been a wonderful treat—there weren’t many men who could stir her emotions as he was prone to do. Still, there was something strange about him, something haunting, something she couldn’t put her finger on. Ah, well, desirable men with the air of mystery were compelling and fun. Weren’t they? And what about Rex? She wasn’t sure. He was part of a fearsome family, making her wonder if such tales of werewolves and monsters were true. Just how did she fit into this strange new world? And why would she even want to? All she kept hearing, however, was that there were only a precious three months before a full change. Time was awastin’.

I am not sure exactly what this book was supposed to be. As I read the last page of the book and then flipped to the acknowledgments, I literally said: “That’s it?” I had finished the entire thing in around 45 minutes, and I felt like I was trying to read a bunch of different stories at once.

At first, I thought that this would be a werewolf story. Lenora was going to change into a wolf at some point in the story, and her change will be the main focus of the novel. But this isn’t the case. Soon, she has some sort of mental connection with a random person named Frankie? I thought he was a coworker, but I’m not sure. There is a very random almost tentacle sex scene as a part of that “connection,” which was weird. I thought at first that it was Lenora connecting with her wolf, but then she says “it’s Frankie!” This is only about a quarter of the way into the novel, and we already have two different large story events happening.

Then, the whole werewolf storyline seems to be thrown to the side yet again. Now, Lenora is in some sort of time-travel storyline. She seems to meet Frankie on the “other side,” but the romance part of the story never picks up again. Instead, it is Lenora trying to control her powers. Were these powers connected to her wolf? I suppose so, but the story never really makes this clear. Then the story ends rather abruptly. I don’t know if there is a going to be a sequel to this novel, but if there is no sequel, then the storyline feels rather unfinished.

I don’t know if Lenora successfully became a wolf or gained control of her powers or ended up going out with Frankie. I really don’t even know what happened at the end of the novel, I just lost track of all the characters. No one had a memorable personality, I don’t understand how the werewolf storyline changed into a time-travel storyline, it was almost as if two different stories were spliced together at the middle. This book was simply too short for everything that it tried to do.

Writing this review was difficult simply because of how confusing this book is, and I would definitely not recommend this to anyone looking for a werewolf fantasy-romance novel.

I received a copy of this book and this is my voluntary review.

Moon Called Review (Mercy Thompson #1)

Moon Called (Mercy Thompson, #1)

Mercedes Thompson is a Volkswagen mechanic and a walker. This means that she can transform into a coyote at will, and this has led her to work with many other people in the magical world. One of her neighbors is a werewolf and the head of a pack, and his name is Adam. When a strange young werewolf comes to her shop asking for work, she wants to help him. However, secrets start to surround this young boy, and people are trying to take him away. When her neighbor Adam is attacked, Mercy knows that she will have to team up with werewolves in a nearby area to try and solve the mystery.

I read this book in two nights exactly, and it was nothing like I thought it would be. It was labeled as Paranormal Romance, and I thought from the cover that it was going to be a very smutty book. Instead, it was a very fleshed out fantasy novel, with very few mentions of a romance, and no smutty scenes at all (at least not in this book of the series).

I loved Mercy so much, as she was a truly strong female main character. I did not even know that I was reading a Paranormal Romance novel because the focus was on Mercy and her story/growth. She never raved about any guy and messed up her mission because of it, and she never let a guy distract her from her goal. Instead, she herself was strong, and the guys looked at her because of that.

I felt that this book was shorter than I thought it would be, and I hope to be able to reread it soon. However, my biggest issue is that the next book in the series is only in audiobook form in my digital library, and I do not have time to listen to an audiobook. Therefore, it might be awhile before I continue with this series. Nevertheless, I loved this book, and hope to be able to go on to the next one soon!

Voodoo and Fate Review

Voodoo and Fate

Song that I listened to while reading this:

As a new fan of BTS, I had only heard Jungkook’s 2U cover before. However, this song is also amazing and calming, which was just what I wanted to get through this book.

Chanti is a Voodoo practitioner in New Orleans, and she is one of the best in the town. When her friend wants to get rid of an unwanted baby, she knows the exact potion to do this for her, but something is telling her that this time it would be a bad idea. She is shocked when she hears that her friend has been impregnated by a werewolf, an enemy of the Voodoo witches.

Kody, a werewolf, travels to new Orleans with his brother Marty in order to help him find his mate who has disappeared after a one night stand. His brother is shocked to hear that his mate is pregnant and trying to get rid of the child, and is worried for her because werewolf pregnancies are different. If she tries to abort the child now, she might die. While helping his brother, Kodi stumbles upon Chanti, his own mate, and the three of them must rescue Chanti’s friend from herself and her parents.

This book is definitely an adult novel. There are several mature scenes throughout, so if you are not comfortable with that, I suggest that you skip this book. However, even though it had those adult scenes, the plot was developed pretty well. I enjoyed the bravery of Chanti, willing to fight for her friend and two men whom she had never met before. The mating system allowed for insta-love, so I can’t complain about that portion of the story. My only small complaint was that the end seemed to have everything occur rather quickly, but in a short story this usually has to happen, and it was not so confusing that I no longer knew what was happening. Overall, for a short story it was very nice, I simply would have enjoyed to see the ending stretched out a bit, maybe to show what happened after the main storyline was over.

I would recommend this book to someone looking for an adult romance novel with a strong plotline and its own world.
