I’m not looking for Mr. Right, not even Mr. Right Now. I have responsibilities that don’t leave room for a relationship. Still, a girl has needs. After moving to Canid and meeting the small town’s sheriff, I think he may just be the one to fulfill them. Ethan McKenzie is almost perfect. His one flaw? He wants to settle down. He’s determined to prove he’s the one f

I readily admit one of my guilty pleasures is to sit down with a cup of coffee, a snack and read a shifter book on my kindle. Reading an amazing shifter book is the icing on the cake. And that’s exactly what Beneath the Blue Moon is, a delicious chocolate ganache. Rich and smooth and oh so very satisfying.

Casey Bryan moved recently to Canid to try to provide a steady, comfortable home base for her ailing father. She’s busy trying to support his medical care and make something of herself to worr

Shifter romance with super short dual POV chapters. I really tried, even tried skimming, but I just couldn’t get into this one. This has a bit of an immature feel to it; the characters are adults, and there’s sex, but the h just seemed super immature. Also, some of the actions/explanations were almost silly.

In a nutshell, Casey doesn’t know Ethan’s a shifter. His mother doesn’t approve, and goes to great (shocking) lengths to split them up, and try to steer Ethan to her choice, the equ

I found my self really enjoying this book. At times I was so drawn I that nothing around me mattered. Thank goodness I read this late at night, downfall, I was up way to late because I couldn't stop.

Great alternating POVs. It went back-and-forth very rapidly but it really worked for this authors writing style. I found that I I really enjoyed being in both of their heads, there was no one over the other because they were both so amazing.

The attraction between the two main characters is amazing

With over 1,200 books on my e-readers, I had yet to delve into the world of Paranormal romance. I just didn’t think it was for me. Since I loved Alana Sapphire’s Death Dealers MC series so fiercely, I was compelled to read Beneath the Blue Moon and was BLOWN AWAY!!!

Now, I can see why romance book lovers enjoy paranormal. With a werewolf hero like Ethan McKenzie, the alpha hotness that I crave in my book boyfriends is kicked up 1000%. He is so sure of his feelings for Casey from the very first mo

I 1-clicked this book after seeing one of my book besties pimping it. She loved it so much, that she gifted a couple of copies on my book group. I know that she's not really into paranormal romance, so for her to be praising it so much, I just knew it had to be amazing. And it was unbelievably so!

The story line was enthralling, the characters were very likeable, especially Ethan, good God that man was intense, and the sex was off the charts HOT! Now that's how a paranormal romance should be writ

It's been awhile since I read a paranormal romance book and I'm so glad I got a chance to read this! When I started it, I couldn't but it down until the very end!! This book had great, steamy sex scenes and lots of action! It has me screaming at the h and wanting to kill some of the other characters. The ending was beautiful! I'm hoping that Sandy finds her mate... Maybe your next book (hint,hint)

This was my first book by Alana Sapphire and it really surprised me because I never liked paranormal stories. But this one was written in the hot and steamy style witch I prefer. The attraction between Casey and Ethan is almost real, I could feel it in my bones. Beneath The Blue Moon is worth 4 stars and I definitely want to read more by Alana.

The moon calls to everyone, even if you don't answer

Love is never an easy path. Much like karma you get what you send out. But the return can be incredible, but the journey of life has many rocks, potholes, detours and delays. But life is never about the destination, it's always about the journey. Enjoy the ride! I did!

Alpha wolf shifter Ethan, knows Casey is his mate the moment he meets her. It doesn't matter that she's human or that it's forbidden to mate with one. He'll fight every obstacle to make her his... even her own stubbornness.

I'm an mc junkie and since I love Death Dealers MC I took a chance and boy am I glad I did I couldn't put this book down. I absolutely loved this book. Steamy sex, love, laughter, sadness, tragedy, ups, downs, twist and turns I was on the edge of my seat. Ethan's a wolf, the alpha of his pack and Sheriff of Canid. Casey is human and moves to Canid to care for her father. When her father goes missing she demands to see the sheriff and meets Ethan. He knows she's the one for him, but she fights it ...more

Great story with lots of page filler

I want to start with, I really liked the story and the romance. The characters were likable and the chemistry was hot. However, the author felt the need to put in as many sex scenes as possible and a forced breakup and estrangement which was pure page filler in my book. If you can get past the page filler and you don't mind a sex scene every few pages then you will enjoy the actual story and romance. Good read.

Alana loved this book. Ethan and Casey's story was magical, tragic and loving. Casey was a fireball and sexy and Ethan didn't know what hit him. Being Alpha it was rough on him and trying to keep his secret from her. If u love steamy sex you'll love this book, action and betrayal. Have tissues handy.

Good read

I haven't read anything by this author and thought I'd read this book as I love shifter books. I was pleasantly surprised by how much i enjoyed it. A little something was missing, although I'm not sure what it was, hence the 4* review

Great book!

The flow of the story is amazing! The way the author brings the characters to life, and the way the story flow, it’s hard to put this one down until the end. Not your typical paranormal romance, it’s much more profound. A great read!

5 Blue moon stars

I one clicked this book last year because I fell in love with the cover. I finally sat down to read it and wasn't disappointed. It is a well written, easy to read sexy romp. I loved it from start to finish. I will definitely try more from this author.

Pretty Good Except the End

I liked the build-up and the steamy scenes, although the ending left much to be desired with all the events and elements suddenly thrown in there to make the protagonists overpowered.

Worth Its Wolfy Weight

This book was well written. It contained not only steamy scenes but also a substance filled story. I for one look forward to the next book.

I absolutely love love love the soulmate concept - that there's only one person made for you. So it's no surprise that I adored the instant attraction between Casey and Ethan. These two were perfect for each other regardless of how much Casey fought it. Casey's dad cracked me up sometimes. My favorite part was him referring to her having lost her virginity by saying, "You can't put the rain back into the cloud." Oh, man. I was rolling.

My heart broke so many times in the book only to be patched t

I was in need for a good shifter book, and boy did I get it with this one. I loved Alana's MC series and now I love this book as well. I really hope that this will turn into a series! I may even be willing to beg for more books!

Casey is actually for New York, but has moved herself and her father to a small town in Montana. I love Casey's personality. She sticks to what she wants, no relationships. Well, that is until Ethan. But she really didn't see the relationship coming, it almost blind sided
