Review: By the Light of the Silvery Moon (Circle of Friends #1) by Andi Anderson

By the Light of the Silvery Moon (Circle of Friends, Book 1)By the Light of the Silvery Moon by Andi Anderson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really, really liked this one. It had a good beginning and a great ending. I know this is going to be a series I am going to look forward to.

Charlie Amos always wanted a werewolf for a mate. At thirteen, he convinced his two best friends and his little brother to participate in a "love spell" ceremony on New Year’s Eve. Each boy picked their own paranormal being that each of them wanted to be mated with forever. Even though Charlie and his friends knew the ceremony was probably just wishful thinking, it was never forgotten.

Years later, when Charlie meets James Williams, a spark of attraction soon turns into a heated courtship. But James has a secret. He’s a one-hundred-and-fifty-year-old werewolf, who instinctively knows Charlie is his mate. Not one to keep a secret from the man he loves, James is determined to tell Charlie his secret as soon as the time is right. But when he finds out about the love spell from another paranormal friend, both men wonder if the feelings they have for one another are nothing but magic, or is it true love?

For once, an author decided that emoting angsts are something that many readers do not really like to read in their books.

Sure, the angst was there, so was the drama, and heck, so was the steamy sexy scenes. The author, however, did not delve too much on marketable formulas to make the books commercial.

Readers get, instead, a straight out paranormal romance between a supernatural and a human. The mating ritual was well done, none of that crying and emotive "mine" that seems to be cut and parcel for all of these plots, and none of the over-acting main characters who just over-react for the sake of it.

The prologue solidly set the storyline for this new series. It was well done, with the right elements to make it a solid back-story, and tells the readers of who will get what in their own books when they get published.

I am sooooo looking forward to this series as it promises to be a straightforward type of entertainment without all those formulaic thingies that many are becoming victim to.
