Moonstruck is my first Julie Kenner read... I got the book in 2010 from Paperback Swap and had it sitting on my shelf until pulled it down to read to sort of put me in the mood for Valentine's Day... It did, oh boy did it ever!
I loved the beginning where Claire and Ty meet, a crowded room on New Year's Eve and their eyes meet and POW a connection is made... When the two actually bump up against each other and Claire goes up on tiptoe and lays one on him at Midnight you can see the fireworks go off on the pages of the book!
I normally do not read Harlequin romance books, it has been many years in fact since I have had as many on my bookshelves as I do now... This book though was just what I needed to get my heart pumping, my blood flowing and my imagination into steamy overdrive...
What was the best part of the book was the fact that both main characters did not feel cliqued, they were each unique people who felt very much like a couple that I would be more than happy to be friends with.. They both had integrity and grit and passion for life and especially insatiable passion for each other!
The sex scenes were very "naughty" and also very well paced, the main story of how the two worked out their differences to allow the budding relationship to work out in the end was very well though out and played out in a manner that felt natural to each characters personality...
There were a few snafus that almost caused Claire and Ty to be over before they even started, luckily they were able to work through those and in doing so had some very soul searching moments that cemented the relationship...
I am very happy to say that I enjoyed the book, enjoyed the scenes in the story line where Claire and Ty at last both came to the conclusion that their love was worth fighting for and the resulting HEA was well worth the wait!
Now I can say that as a new fan am looking forward to reading the rest of the books on my shelf by Julie Kenner ... I have her trilogy of The Blood Lily Chronicles and the two books in her Beth Frasier series to read... I also have her first three books in her J.K. Beck The Shadow Keepers series which will have 3 more books to add to it in January-March release of 2012.. I am excited to read all of these and hope you will join me in making Ms. Kenner's books your next reading experience!
