*You can read my review of Book #1 Wolves and Roses here*

Moonlight and Midtown was a ton of fun and the perfect way to see what our favorite characters were up to. Ultimately we got to watch Bryar and Elle's shopping extravaganza and oh my gosh, it was action packed and a little bit crazy lol. But we also got to learn more about the world that they lived in and watch Bryar and Knox start to find their place in life. This novella was a quick, lighthearted read that left me feeling even more excit

Bryar Rose is adjusting to her new life now that she can shift. Shifting is the big problem, especially when her wolf pushes her to shift at the most inconvenient of times. This pushes Knox, Bry’s boyfried, to drastic measure to help Bry control her wolf.

Bry also goes on a shopping adventure to find the perfect outfit, a magical outfit, that will stay with her while shifting since she is exploding all her clothes. You never thought shopping was a dangerous adventure until you go with Bryar Rose.

This is a bridge novella that takes place immediately after book 1 and leads you into book 2 of the Magicorum series. I highly recommend you read the first book before this one because this is a lighter read and so much happened in book one.

Bryar is fresh into her shifter powers and is trying quickly to learn how to control her wolf but is failing miserably. She and Elle have moved into a townhouse owned by Le Charme and now her boyfriend Knox, an alpha wolf, and Alec Le Charme are their neighbo

New to me author Ms. Bauer intrigues me. I generally avoid YA because in the past ten years, it tends to have such a toxic reader/reviewer/author environment. It saddens me because sometimes, there are gems like this little story that I would pass up and miss. This novella is intriguing as it hints of a tie ins to fairy tales I've enjoyed reading.

In this one, the focus is on Bryar Rose who is based off the sleeping beauty template. I have not read the first book in this series and now I'm think

I enjoyed the first book a lot more, but this one isn't bad. Didn't grab me as much as I would have liked, though that's more to do with the plot and not the characters. I still liked them a lot, especially Knox.

Also, I loved this: "Surprisingly enough, it's really cool to find out you have knights, even if they made up the title themselves and tell you about it while naked and covering their junk with bras."

Rather looking forward to book 2 when it comes out!
Moonlight and Midtown is a great novella filled with humor and mystery. Bryar Rose has come to terms with the fact that she is a shifter but she and her wolf have a few issues to work out still. The main one being that Bryar Rose’s wolf pops out whenever she feels like it and it is very inconvenient for Bryar Rose. The main inconvenience is that that since Bryar Rose has no control over the shifting, she does not have time to take off her clothes, which get destroyed when shifting and she has qu ...more

Loved this fun little jaunt back into the Magicorum world! Especially loved Bryar Rose having some girl time with her bestie, Elle (who by the way, is my favorite character.)

The idea of shifters with wardrobe issues is simply the best, and I love Bauer's ability to craft a practical problem with a supernatural solution. The sidebar charas are fun, and OMG, and Abe and Hollywood--could I love these two goofballs more? Also good to see Nyxa make a return.

Super fun and snarky! Not to miss!

The gang is back on another fun and crazy adventure. Here Bryar and her bestie are trying to buy Bry clothes. What happens when a werewolf goes clothes shopping in the stores run by fairies and one in particular was the fairy queen? Well you can only imagine the trouble they get into.

The story is fun and flirtatious. Elle has never been one to back down from things and neither has Bry so these two get into all sorts of hijinks just buying clothes. Clothes that Bry won’t destroy with her wolfie w

A fun novella featuring an unusual shopping day in Manhattan with Bryar Rose and Elle--don't call me Cinderella---which inevitably ends up combining fun and mayhem. Did I mention Knox is in this one too? He is. Don't miss this bridge novella between WOLVES AND ROSES and SHIFTERS AND GLYPHS.

Bryar Rose is getting ready for a night out with Knox her new boyfriend or who her wolf calls mate. Bry is worried about their upcoming outing as she is worried about her wolf showing herself at inappropriate times. She doesn’t want her naked rear end to end up on Youtube. But not to worry Knox has a plan that can help Bry learn to tame her wolf.

Oh and with all this shifting Bry is almost out of clothes. Every time she shifts her clothes is destroyed. Bry and her best friend Elle has plans to go

Rating: 5 Stars

This is a quick novella read that follows the events of Wolves and Roses and how things were left off. Bryar Rose is ready to enjoy her new life away from her evil aunties and her curse. She has a new man, who is literally her dream guy, and about to attend a regular school with her bestie. Sounds great. Accept her wolf side takes some effort to get used to and it has ruined her wardrobe.

Moonlight and Midtown is a cute and often funny little novella that bridges the gap between Wolves and Roses and its sequel. While the story does not really have a strong focus, it shows how Bry is struggling with her inner wolf, having little control over her changes. This, in turn, is causing her a great deal of worry. She does not want to leave the house in case she shifts and obsessive human fans (or "Howlers") manage to take a picture of her naked body.

The result is a fun story which largel

Bry is ready to finally attend a regular high school after years with the evil aunties. Or is she? She is still having trouble controlling her wolf and with the general public getting picture happy, the last thing she needs is to un-shift in the nude. Now Bry has a group of strangers following her around town and her best friend Elle is willing to help her confront them. Can Bry determine who these strangers are? Will the answers uncovered change how she looks at her future?

If you are hooked on the first book in this series, Wolves and Roses, and you just can't wait for the second installment, then this novella is for you!

Moonlight and Midtown is definitely a great bridge between the two books that can satisfy your cravings in meeting our amazing kick-ass characters in Magicorum again after the initial release. Yes, it is short but not to worry, it is still packed with all kinds of crazy action and adv

This Novella takes place after the first book and is meant to bridge the gap between Book 1 and 2. I thought this short story was very cute and fun and does a good job of taking us down from book1 and setting us up for book2. 

Watching Briar Rose try to keep her inner wolf in check through out the story was a great and entertaining idea because, of course, after having been locked up all of Briar's life her wolfy side is bound to be a lot stir crazy and we get to see her and her friends deal with

Moonlight and Midtown was a fun, lighthearted read. Overall, the story is mostly fluff, not that there’s anything wrong with that.

However, I was rather confused as I read through it, because the story didn’t match the synopsis. There certainly weren’t any “mysterious strangers…following Bry across Manhattan.” NOTE: The Goodreads synopsis isn't correct, I'm referring to the synopsis on Amazon.

I also feel as though I got cheated out of an important part of the story at the end. I won’t share any s

I received this free ARC from NetGalley. This is my honest review.

Bry and Elle are on a mission. But as usual, their mission is a bit risky...and dangerous. But that has never stopped these two in the past, so it's no different now.

When things get a bit hairy, though, Bry has to see if she has the ability to get herself out of her situation.

This was a great novella! It gave me just enough of Bry's story that made me want more! But it also satisfied my hunger for this series. I cannot wait for

Set four weeks after the last book, Bryar Rose is somewhat adjusting to her new form. But being a werewolf is tearing her room, and her wardrobe apart, quite literally. She's been locking herself in her apartment, so she doesn't hurt anyone when she shifts. This book is very short, and satisfied my need to know more about the series well.

A fun fast read.
This story is focused on the inconvenience of transforming into a werewolf and back.
Bryar Rose has to adapt and control her inner wolf that has been dormant by a magic spell.
Her wolf form has shredded all her clothes while transforming, so her best friend Elle takes her to a shopping trip at the fairy stores that sales indestructible garments but the price might be to high.

Note: I received an ARC for review purposes and an honest and unbiased opinion.

This is a good next step. It gives a few details to set up the next story. There is one big flaw. In the last book Bryar just turned 18. In this one she just turned 17. If you can ignore that discrepancy the story is great and continues o from the last book. And i love how the relationships seem to be progressing.
