Life with a group of seven male werewolves worries Jem Stonehouse not one bit. She is engaged to the Alpha’s son Sean Holloway after all. So what has Jem’s territorial instincts on high alert?
The pack’s latest addition. Both of them.
None of the men think there’s a problem with the new girlfri ...more
I received this E-arc directly from J Taylor Publishing in exchange for my honest opinion and review.
I like the cover, the blue moon which if you don't know what one is, is actually a second full moon in the same month. A Blue Moon is said to be a very magical time and enhance any magic/spells done at that time. I like the "moodiness" of the cover, the figure suggests seduction.
In thi ...more
The follow-up book to J.A. Belfield’s Darkness & Light wasted no time in getting on my good side. The first chapter is short, but features Sean and Jem hunting as wolves, and whenever a novel starts off from a were’s POV I just know that it’s going to be good. Stonehouse and I didn’t exactly hit it off in the first installment; I found her a little too weak to be even considered a heroine. However, in Blue Moon she brings her A-game and proves me wrong; she’s now a fu ...more
My one piece of advice about this book though...do not start it when you have no time to read it! You will not want to put it down, so you'll be in trouble. :P From the moment this book starts, you will want to keep reading, so don't say I ...more
I had some issues with the first book, but decided to give the second book a try because the blurb sounded so interesting. And I am really glad I did, in my opinion this book is much better than the first book. The plot was interesting and fast paced and there were some nice twists and turns.
The focus of this plot is really different than the first book. Instead of focusing on Jem and her getting to know the pack and her werewolf heritage, ...more
Nenner nenner nenner!!!
Blue Moon is the second installment of the Holloway Pack books. Once again we’re following Jem and Sean, but this time it’s not Jem whose life is in danger. This time it’s the female werewolf kicking major witch @$$ to save her pack.
I loved this book. Thrilling, fast-paced from beginning to end. Anyone with brothers and a close knit family will understand Jem’s protective nature. And this leads me into …

Blue Moon is imho even better than it prequel Darkness & Light. But the main thing, that makes me love all of Julie's books, is the way she describes the bond Jem and Sean have. The bond of true love. I've never read anything that describes my feelings as perfect as the Holloway Pack stories do.
Blue Moon is another jewel in a series of amazing stories, wi ...more
Jem has gotten used to being the only female in her pack of gorgeous, hunky men. A new threat has her grinding her teeth to protect them. No one messes with Sean or her family. Jem will do whatever it takes to save her boys- flirt with danger, disobey her Alpha and even leave the pack. A girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do, and Jem does it all!
Ms. Belfield has written another addicting addition to her amazing storyline! I coul ...more
I really loved seeing the pack dynamics and how they all interact with each other, especially when it comes to Jem. She is a perfect fit in the pack puzzle and in this book and she finds out how far she’s willing to go to protect the ones she loves.
I’m also pretty sure J.A. Belfield is an evil temptress. She will bewitch you, lure you into her story, and then twist your mind up with jaw dropping twists and heartbreak. She will keep you gu ...more
Blue Moon is much more action and stress packed than Darkness & Light. It has a different vibe that makes it as interesting as its prequel. Nobody wants to read the same thing twice which is why this book is so interesting.
We also get to meet Jess, the mysterious sister who knows so much about magic. She is the packs life saver, litterally.
As for the ending... how in earth are we supposed to wait until August to know whats happening with him??? ...more
Gotta say, I lurved this sequel to Darkness & Light and the latest threat to the Holloway Pack.
I can’t really add to the synopsis so straight on to my thoughts….
What I liked about Blue Moon was the shift of the focus from Jem to the pack as the potential victim(s), we tend to automatically assume that Jem will always be the target -with the werewolf community being predominantly male and Jem being the only female- but this shows us never to presume you know anything. It was easy to assu ...more
First off, I love that cover. It's so stunning. Just wow!
I dived into this book without having read the first four Holloway Pack series books (Instinct (Holloway Pack, #0), Eternal (Holloway Pack, #0.5), Darkness & Light (Holloway Pack, #1), Into The Unknown (Holloway Pack #1.5) but it really didn't matter as the book does good as a standalone.
It's been really long since I read a book about werewolves and mostly because I have been weaning myself off those since I have started to fe...more

It was super good to get back into the contemporary world of the Holloway Pack! I love the historical novellas that I've ate-up over the past year, but I've been jonesing for the continuation of the Jem/Sean story. And **fan girl squeal** it was everything I could even hope for and more!!!
Life, it seems for the Holloway pack has settled into a blissful rhythm..... well, until..... a stranger, Marianne, takes ...more
Before I deal too in depth about Blue Moon's content, it is worthwhile to note two well-done elements regarding its form and frame. The E-book I had the pleasure of perusing displayed economical paragraphing (many were only one sentence) that furthered the illusion that what I was reading occurred in real time like a TV series of some sort. The verbs, if I am permitted to geek out a little, and vocabulary were often exciting. Don't even get me started on the rather shock ...more
Yes, yes. Werewolves, dominant man, rawr. But it was becoming too much. In the two prequel shorts, I had to continuously remind myself that it was the 18th century, so I didn't get pissed off. Had it continued into the modern story, it would have gotten old really quickly (to me).
Welcome to the 21st century. "Don't you worry your pretty little head, darl ...more
Seriously, this is very much worth the read. The next one in the series can't come soon enough.
At a Glance
I so wanted to give Blue Moon more stars because I really enjoyed it, but the plot wasn't very structured and the ending could have been more exciting. But I still liked it a lot.
Here's The Story...
