    "good introduction to wolf/human romance series"
    What made the experience of listening to Blood Moon the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the story, the length of it was good and it was fun and sexy listen. However, the story lacked detail that would've enhanced the story but it has great potential and I can't wait for more


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nate was my favorite character; strong, passionate and very primal


    What does Alex Hyde-White bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    he does a great job of emerging you in the story and making it come to life

    Story
    "Interesting read, hope to see more"

    This book is the first in a series and has a lot of potential. It was an entertaining read, it just needed a touch more development to the characters and world. There were times when the story felt rushed, I would have liked it a bit longer to help the relationship along.

    I generally liked Nate and his take charge attitude, I did not like that he was willing to let his Brotherhood dictate his love life. I would have liked he to be more assertive there. Maxine ends up being the one with the get over it attitude. I really liked her spunk, she adapted to the situation fairly quickly.

    The story had an outline but never became too deep. It was more like a shallow cut. Still it had potential for more. I am curious about the Brotherhood and their role in keeping peace. It would also be nice to know why the vamps were after this particular woman. Perhaps we could also get into the mate bond aspects of their relationship.

    Score a bit of smexy steam!! These two are combustible in the way mates should be. I could have used a bit more fire in the steamy scenes. They are not quite NC-17 but a far cry from erotic. They managed to get it on a few times in this short read. I will forgive the sex in the middle of life or death situations, cause hey, it is a smexy type read.

    It is a mixed narrative switching between Nate and Maxine's POV. This helps the reader get into their heads and understand where they are both coming from. If it had just been Maxine's narrative Nate would not have come off very well.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Alex Hyde-White, fun fact he is the sexy polo guy in Pretty Woman! He has a yummy read!! I could listen to him read the phone book!!! He does a great job bringing the book to life. He has a terrific pace that keeps the story moving. His voice is just the right amount of smexy and gruff. I will definitely be looking for more reads by him!!

    Overall this was an enjoyable read and I am interested in seeing more from this new author. There are some great concepts in her writing and I am eager to see her progress. Hope the next book comes out on audio soon!

    Disclosure - I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, opinions and ratings are my own.

    "My first Geraldine Allie story!"
    What did you like best about Blood Moon? What did you like least?

    I am a fan of paranormal romances, especially those involving werewolves and vampires, and this was no exception. I'm rather new to audio books, so I had to rewind a few times as I would find myself missing bits here and there! (My fault, not the books).

    I liked Nate, but Maxine was a little annoying.


    If you’ve listened to books by Geraldine Allie before, how does this one compare?

    This is my first time listening/reading a book by Geraldine Allie!


    What about Alex Hyde-White’s performance did you like?

    Great pausing for effect, I thought the voices fit the character.


    Was Blood Moon worth the listening time?

    Yes. And it was perfect length for what I was doing at the time (getting in my daily miles!)

    I enjoyed this sort supernatural romance.

    "A little spicy werewolf vs vampire fun"

    Wanting a little romance for that 1.5 road trip? Do you dig the werewolf vs. vampire thing? You might like this one. A nice short one with great storytelling and production.

    Story
    "Mixed feelings"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I think it depends on the friend. My biggest issue here may be that I forgot that the variety of romance that this falls into as a subset can have what has been referred to as "quick romance". If I have a friend that likes that style, then yes, I would recommend it. I generally like Geraldine's style. This one just didn't resonate as well for me.


    If you’ve listened to books by Geraldine Allie before, how does this one compare?

    I listened to the Hunters Moon story and liked that one a lot more.


    Have you listened to any of Alex Hyde-White’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    In this regard, this book was better. AHW's performance in Hunters Moon was a little slow for me but in this book he had his pacing much more in tune with what I like. I thought he did a really good job with that.


    Do you think Blood Moon needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes. Here's the blunt truth of it all. I feel like Geraldine is testing her waters with her writing and we are getting appetizers. Well, there's a definite talent here. Expand the stories. Take us on the longer journeys. Questions were left unanswered and lots of opportunity to expand on things, esp for the main two characters and the issues with the conflict their relationship causes. There's a lot of potential there for some juicy drama.


    Any additional comments?

    1. The concepts of playing off of the vampire vs werewolf are time-honored and I think the use of this gives a nice opening for a wider audience. I'd love to see more character development, esp on the vampire side. more expansion of their perspective will add more layers of conflict that can be resolved. Conflicts within the pack would also be good to expand on.

    2. The romance, IMO, needs to more naturally develop. There wasn't quite enough time here and things happened a little too fast. More of the tantalizing taunting and teasing, the yearning and hoping but never quite getting, the playful drawing in...

    Story
    "Steamy Human/Werewolf Longing"
    What did you love best about Blood Moon?

    There is single-mindedness of purpose as the author allows the two main characters in this short tale to explore their obsessive fixation on each other. The focus of this relationship of longing is only somewhat interrupted by their need for self-preservation and efforts to escape a horde of nameless vampires.


    Have you listened to any of Alex Hyde-White’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narrator's performance was exceptionally well-done. His delivery was sensitive to either sex without ever become cloying or smarmy.

    Story
    "Great Introduction to the series!"
    What did you love best about Blood Moon?

    As this is only an 1 and 1/2 hours long, I think of this as a prequel to the series. By that I mean that this one moment in time that starts you on the journey for the rest of the books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked both Maxine and Nate equally. They were well written and that makes me want to continue with the series to see what happens to them.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I couldn't pin point one scene as a favorite as it was a shorter story (at 1 and 1/2 hours) so it seemed to me to be more like one single scene.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    While I didn't have any extreme reactions to this book, the 'tension' between Maxine and Nate was ... well lets say HOT! I agree that this is not a book for young people. I can't wait to listen to the next book in the series!


    Any additional comments?

    I thought that Alex Hyde-White did a wonderful job with the narrating and I hope that he continues to read the rest of the series.
