I was kinda hoping that this book would jazz up this well-used storyline a little. That it would give me something other than your typical YA paranormal romance plot with a dash of a love triangle thrown in for fun.
But...no. The main female protagonist was only too happy to be the center of attention and to have two guys vying for her.
It wasn't a bad read. It was just...

While there were parts of the story that dragged and characters that had flaws, I still enjoyed the journey that the author takes you in in the book. I was a little disappointed in the fact that Brandon, Lacey's true soul mate, was only around for a few pages within the first 3/4 of the book. I wanted to che ...more
I actually got two books finished today, as Jordan Deen's The Crescent was a rather quick read being only 187 pages. But it's shortness didn't detract from the thrilling story!

Voordat ik begin wil ik jullie eerst nog even wijzen op de cover van The Crescent. Is die niet prachtig? Het zal vast en zeker een Photoshop trucje zijn, maar ik vind die oplichtende wolf op de achtergrond geweldig! De blurb aan de andere kant mag nodig herschreven worden, het zorgt er helemaal niet voor dat je nieuwsgierig wordt naar het boek, integendeel! Het schotelt te veel het alom bekende paranormale verhaaltje van driehoeksverhouding en...more
Being a huge wolf fan, I was really looking forward to reading the Crescent, as I was eager to read a wolf story mixed with lore, romance and action. Sadly, I didn't get into as much as I wanted to. Don't get me wrong, Jordan Deen has a great love triangle, but what bothered me the most about the book's main character Lacey, is even after she realizes which of the guys/werewolves isn't right, she continues to be with him, even after professing her love for the other one. To be honest, I ...more
I’m the first person to say The Crescent made me love werewolf stories. I was never the kind of person who likes books with these criatures, but The Crescent just made me bite my tongue.
Lacey is a teenager—and her 18th birthday can’t come fast enough—who is right in the middle of an endless fight between her mom and dad. She wants out, and she wants out fast. Everything seems to be going in this direction till two (hot) new guys made an app ...more

Am primit aceasta carte de la Jordan Deen, in schimbul unei recenzii sincere. Am fost luni la posta si am ridicat coletul si m-am apucat imediat sa o citesc. Sincer vorbind, aceasta este prima carte in engleza pe care am citit-o cap-coada. Inainte am mai incercat cu "Jurnalele vampirilor" dar nu am reusit sa citesc prea mult. Mda, asta se intampla anul trecut. Se vede ca timpul a cam trecut si ca... acum stiu mult mai mult.
Nu mi-a mai placut o carte precum " ...more
I'm really outgoing and get teased (a lot) for my knack to make friends anywhere including, but not limited to: the bank, the store, the bathroom, the movies... you get the idea.
A few of my fave things are my son, my yorkie, cupcakes, wine, coffee and (of course) tattoo'd boys.
I'm available on Twitter, Facebook and of course, here on Good Reads.
