Publisher's summary

Riley Dawson is a psychotherapist with a lycanthropic affliction. She’s a werecoyote, to be precise.

A foundling adopted by wealthy parents, Riley led a privileged life until she fell in love with Fiona Bell, an evangelical preacher’s daughter. Raging hormones, the full moon, and the pull of Fiona Bell on her teenage heartstrings triggered her first transformation. Unfortunately, her parents witnessed the change and sent her off to college with a trust fund and an agreement never to return home.

Twenty years later, Riley shares a lucrative therapy practice with Dr. Margaret Spencer. Margaret, her wife, and her gay brother-in-law are the only ones who know Riley’s secret. Afraid of risking exposure, Riley restricts her love life to online hookups. But when a family is referred for treatment and Fiona Bell comes back into her life, all the rules of the client-therapist relationship are tested and Riley’s world is turned upside down.

Luna What?

I Love reading Shape-shifter books. This was a very believable story. Without any killing, and fighting for territory. I would love to listen to a sequel. Off to my next Adventure.

Great story with minor issues (spoiler free)

What I really liked about this story was how the author painted the world. I really felt like I could see everything that was happening in the story, watching the characters interact. I also really appreciated the brief lesson on Social Work vs Psychology, it's nice learning new things while experiencing a story. The narrator was great too, love her voice. I'm also glad that this wasn't just a straight up porno. The author easily could have made this into (a pretty darn good) porn if she wished, but the story isn't about the adult content and I like that.

This novel does have its issues though. My two main issues are the lack of believability in some of the characters and the amount of religion that got shoved in my face. A lot of the characters; minor and major, respond a bit abnormally to the situations presented, to the point that some don't feel like real people in their own world (the main character doesn't have this issue though). Besides that, there is a fair amount of religion that gets shoved in there, and it doesn't even feel like the religion chosen meshes with the story well. I feel like the author should have been more true to her characters instead of trying to fit her own religion into it.

Nonetheless, I really did enjoy this story and recommend this to anyone that likes the idea of non-angsty lesbian werewolves and wont mind a little preaching.

Absurdly good book

Absolutely awesome story, can't recommend enough. Theres some intense scenes of domestic violence sprinkled in there so be warned on that. Some other reviewers here mention that the book is long or has a lot of superfluous dialogue, but disregard that nonsense they don't seem to know what characterization is.

Loved it

First off, the narrator was amazing in my opinion. She really brought the story to life for me. Beyond that is the story itself. Amazing. I truly felt for the characters and what they went through. There was also a lot of psychoanalysis that I was very much not expecting, but I think it tied in beautifully with the events taking place. I loved how it was weaved into the story naturally, and in an entertaining way, as opposed to an info dump. There were also some really good twists that I did not see coming. From start to finish I was hooked, and am truly saddened that it wasn't longer. I hated to see it end, or hear it end, as I would have loved to see how things continued from where it ended. If I could give it more stars, I absolutely would.

Great Preformance BUT

Depects graphic domestic abuse and homophobia to a digree that makes you have to stop from time to time. I liked the book and its definately worth the read but it is hard to get through at certian points.

Great story with a great narrator…

This is a great paranormal second-chance romance between Riley (werecoyote) and her first love (Fiona) who is now trapped in a dangerous abusive marriage.
There were parts of this story that included in-class lectures about things like sociopaths and psychopaths that worked so well within this story.
This book had me on the edge of my seat and the chemistry between Riley & Fiona really worked.
Much of the abuse is off the pages, but not all, so be prepared for some darkness too.

Brilliant book

Loved the fresh take on the standard romance. Through in a little fantasy and it still comes out normal and realistic. It was a little long in spots but the story delivered. Great characters and maybe a little bit of that old magic that true love can conquer ANYTHING.
