Someone is watching the Holloway Pack, and this time, the female isn’t the target.

I was so excited to finally have my hands on Blue Moon. I finished this novel in an eight hour work day. No, I didn't get much work done. She captured me with the first Holloway pack novel Darkness & Light. Mrs. Belfield has done it again with another page turner.  Page after page she drives you in with intrigue until the very end. She takes you on a journey from past to present with the Holloway Pack men and Jem. Her characters continue to grow from being timid to bad ass. I fell in love wi ...more

Okay ... Yes! I have been on a string of great reads lately and Blue Moon is no different. I loved it. I’m such a sucker for the triple threat of great action, romance and the paranormal coming together in a perfect storm of terrific writing. In the capable hands of Ms. Belfield, we’re taken on another leg of Jem and Sean’s journey together, and it’s done with humor, passion and mystery. I love how I can see, taste, and smell her writing as if I’m right there. I’ve come to love these characters ...more

MY REVIEW
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.

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

Once again, J.A. Belfield has blown me away! I absolutely LOVED Blue Moon! I loved that you get to see Jem as a member of the Holloway Pack, and that you get to see her with Sean! :D I also really enjoyed seeing her interactions with the other Pack members. :)

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

I got a copy for review in exchange for an honest review.

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,

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 …

Finished this in one sitting, the only pause I took was to eat when my own 'mate' came home from work. I couldn't and wouldn't put it down!

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

Jem kicks butt in the latest installment from the Holloway Pack.

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

Blue Moon was absolutely fantastic; so fantastic I finished it in one sitting! J.A. Belfield dives back into the lives of the Holloway pack with fierce emotions and tests on the bonds within the pack. Jem has adjusted to life mated to Sean Holloway and is quite content being the sole female in the family. So when a sneaky woman moves in on Josh, Jem's hackles rise and raise an intense dislike for the woman. While the pack wants her to get along with Marianne, Jem's instincts take over and action ...more

Review:

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

This is another great book in the series. I won this book too in a giveaway, so it was free!! I did run out and buy two of the other books in this series though!!! I will definitely continue to read the series. Jem is a fantastic heroine, and I love learning more about her, her past, and her love. I will always love strong heroines and Jem certainly is one. You easily lose yourself to the world J.A. Belfield creates. The only thing I disliked is the ending and having to wait for more especially ...more

WOMEN POWER. Go Jem!!!

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???

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

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.

Sleep is an extremely valuable commodity in a house with 3 children under 5, so the fact that once again J.A. Belfield has lured me into giving up a large chunk of it speaks volumes for the next instalment of the Holloway Pack story. This was a book I both couldn’t wait to read and dreaded starting, unsure whether I wanted to know what Ms Belfield was going to put the characters through this time, maybe I was better remaining blissfully ignorant believing them all to live happily ever after..... ...more

As seen on Rabidreads.ca:

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

I really liked this one. I also like that it seemed to fix what I was worried would become too much for me in the series - the massive misogyny.

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

So I absolutely LOVED this installment of the Holloway Pack series. It took me a bit longer to get into as I would have liked, but I was hooked once I got into it. Particularly towards the middle. I swear, I was right there with Jem flipping out & wondering "what the hell are they going to do?!?"

Seriously, this is very much worth the read. The next one in the series can't come soon enough.

I read this knowing it was a sequel, but I hadn't read the first book. I did know some of the back story, because once I started it I realized I had read a short story or something about the characters before. The book follows a pack of werewolves made up of two families. There is some reference to past events from the first book, but it wasn't a problem in understanding the events of the second. Since the book revolves more around the romance of the main characters, I would label this a paranor ...more

The book was action packed and there were so many moment when I went I didn’t see that coming. I just wanted to keep reading more when it ended and wondered what the Author had in store for the next book but it looks promising.

This second installment in the Holloway Pack series is a wild romp. It is difficult to talk about this book without spoilers, so I will only say that the synopsis/description is a great tease. There is tons of action and Jem experiences an abundance of frustrations when those around her choose to not heed her warnings. Consequently she once again takes off on a tear to save the day, often without thinking things through before hand, which in my mind is her least likable character trait. Otherwis ...more

Ms. Belfield delivers again! I love the Holloway pack. They are refreshing, fierce, clingy, loyal, loving, and sometimes down ride crazy. In this installment there are some women infringing on Jem’s territory, and her hackles are raised. She fights for what’s hers in a cut throat (literally) no-holds-bar domination, and she sure brings it.


There were a few grammatical errors and some slow spots that had me putting the book down with little resistance, which is why I have rated this book a 4, but
