I guess I might be on a kick of reading new authors this weekend because here's another review about a book written by an author I've never read from until today.

Moon Kissed was a pretty interesting werewolf shifter book. Now I'm not really a fan of love-triangles and such but Jennifer Snyder definitely pulled it off. I guess the one thing I don't really understand from this book was the ending. I wouldn't really call it a cliffhanger or anything super dramatic that left you hanging on the edge

If I had bothered to read a few reviews of this book before I got it things would have ended better. So for that, I will admit fault. This book features a love triangle, which I haven't been a fan of for a few years now. It didn't help how small the universe the author created felt. The lore and the wolves self-inflicted seclusion from the rest of the town was a bit weird.

Mina wasn't the brightest crayon in the box. There were times when I started questioning her common

4.5 stars.

I always enjoy Jennifer Snyder's books. So when I saw that she was putting out a new werewolf series, I was so excited! I received an ARC of this book from a Facebook giveaway.

One of the things that I loved most about this book is the way you became a werewolf. Mina was born with the potential to become a wolf (or Moon Kissed). I like that just because you were born in the pack didn't mean you automatically turned furry.

I also really liked Mina... I think she was a little silly for da

What? That was it? Wuuuuuut?
The book just suddenly stopped. You can't even call it a cliffhanger. It's like it was divided in half.
There I was - reading peacefully totally expecting the next chapter but nope - credits, baby. Or well, afterword or whatever.

I guess that's one way to keep readers. Hack it in half so that there's no other option but to read next one. It isn't even like the 1st part of the story concluded and so the next book would be the next part. Nuh-uh. I guess one might conside

Moon Kissed by Jennifer Snyder a kissable five-star read. This Is the first book in the Mirror Lake Wolves series and I can’t wait for the rest of the series, it promises to be a great series, possibly the best I will read for a long time. This is a new adult/ Mature young adult series and may just feature my favourite wolfman in Eli Vargas.
Mirror Lake Trailer Park is different to the rest of town, and people are starting to notice. What the people of the trailer park know and the townsfolk onl

Pretty Good Read

I really liked this book! The cover had me first of course! The characters left me wanting to find out more about their world and if my girl was ever going to be Moon Kissed. I’ll never tell.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a quick read and a good romance starter!

Moon Kissed

This book has two love interest and a mystery going on all at the same time. I’m really curious as to the future for Mina. Will she choose Alec the sweet southern human or Eli the hunky wolf? I can’t wait to see what happens next.

This was the first book I have read by Jennifer Snyder and she did not disappoint! I had found her through another author who I thoroughly enjoy and had the opportunity to read chapter 1 of Moon Kissed before the book was released. By the end of chapter 1, I was hooked! I was so anxious to read the book I pre-ordered it immediately and put a countdown on my phone! Unfortunately I could not read the book immediately as I had to work, but once I was done with work, I sat in my sun-room and read th ...more

You guys, I’ve been dying to start this series since it first came out last year but I wanted to wait until a few sequels came out because I knew I would be binge reading them! Moon Kissed certainly didn’t disappoint! I got lost within the world in seconds! I liked that Jennifer was subtle about the werewolves in the book, it wasn’t constantly thrown in your face and repeated over and over again. You g

Oookay, I was a bit shocked when the book ended because seriously, that was waaaaaay too early. I mean, we were right in the middle of ....well, of... everything. Even though I was a bit irritated that Mina and Eli didn't share the information they had with their alpha as it was crucial information that might save someone's life.

Apart from that I really enjoyed this book. It was imaginative and a great read. I liked the hero and heroine a lot and I was worried about Mina and Eli when they tried

Another paranormal story from Ms Snyder that I fell in love with. She created another world that sucked me in and is not letting me go. I love it. I'm hooked and I want more. Soon. Very soon.

In here we meet Mina who seems to be a normal girl but is anything but. She is part a wolf pack and is impatiently awaiting her gene to be activated. But as life is never easy, the gene is not playing along. And also life is not easy on Mina with love life. Having two amazing guys turn attention towards her

I really enjoyed this book, it left me wanting to read the next book in the series. I'm anxious to see what direction this goes in The next book. The unanswered questions or so many unresolved events in the book sort of bugged me at the end (& I'm not talking about the cliff-hanger ending). This flowed fairly smoothly. I almost felt like this was a prequel to a series, where some of the world building is taking place, & getting to know all the characters a bit. I liked Mina & Eli. I even liked t ...more

I really love the main character, she has dealt with a lot of hardship in her life but she remains strong and has important values. I can feel her pull between the two men and the different things they each represent so I am very invested in the outcome of this love story. There are multiple things going on that she is investigating and trying to find out about which just adds to the story. The book left off after something important just happened so I am anxious to start book 2. The narrator is ...more

Team Eli

Such a great read from Jennifer Snyder! This a feels different than a lot of the wolf shifter books I have read. The pack some how feels like a community of real people. Usually I feel like this intense underlying sense of dread from a were wolf series, where something intense is going to happen and disrupt everything and I'll have to place my bet on who is going to die. In this book it feels more like people who live real lives and yet occasionally they turn into wolves. I think somethi

Completely consumed my attention

I started this yesterday and could hardly put it down. It consumed my attention since the moment I started reading the first chapter. You have to feel for Mina with all the problems she has. Her drunk father, mother leaving and other things. I love the love triangle going on with Alec and Eli. I'm not sure which one she should choose because both are quiet the catch. I felt like the authors writing was creative and unique. Definitely looks forward to continuing th

Hello love triangle. Mina is from a family of werewolves and is waiting to find out if she too will be "Moon Kissed" and be able to transform. Most of her kind have already found out by her age (17-19). Mina craves normal so she starts dating a human despite the fact that it's highly frowned upon. Meanwhile her long time neighbor, and the alphas son, Eli has increasingly been turning his attentions towards her now that Mina is over 18. It appears this is book one of a seven book series. The book ...more

Another great shifter series by Snyder!

I loved this Author's first duology about shifters and that's how she became one of my favorite authors. After many, many novels, she's returned to shifters with the Mirror Lake Wolves. Romance, shifters, villains, friends, and family. Did I mention sexy guys? Team Alec or Eli??? I'm team Eli but time will tell. So glad book 2 comes out soon. Five glittery stars!

Alec or Eli, whom to choose, that is the question Mina is faced with along with fighting for the lives of her pack. Unknowing what to do and with the full moon on its way, it seems Eli is her only ally. Love the differences between Alec and Eli but so many similarities. Shane and his brothers are crazy scary. Becca, Mina's new friend, is just the sweetest and Benji is hilarious. So can't wait for more of this series. ...more

“Moon Kissed” book one of the Mirror Lake Wolves by Jennifer Snyder was amazing. I was hooked from the first chapter. It was very hard to put down. The chemistry between Mina and Eli is HOTTT!! I can understand how she would crave the attentions of the human Alec too. He’s very sweet and nice and just the right kind of guy to date. However Eli – dang new book boyfriend. This story will have you hooked and the ending, oh WOW. It leaves you wanting more. Great read, don’t miss this book.

Jennifer Snyder absolutely captivates you from the beginning of this book. Descriptions are spot on and she sets the scene perfectly. The Mirror Lake Series will draw you in within the first two chapers and leave you wanting to find out what happens next. Characters are built well and while there is the typical love triangle, it is not as emotional as some YA series.

I read this book as part of the Mirror Lake Wolves Box Set 1-3. What a fabulous read this was. I thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of the books in this set. Highly recommended.
