I as many others has gotten this ARC from Netgally! yay!
Also, i didn't know this was a series before...i added it on GR? i think?
But i also believe this is ok to read as a standalone so to speak since we get information here and there, throughout the book.
Sometimes this book had me groaning and wanting to just nope the hell out, it was alot of hate going on here, hate for her mother, hate for the lunar court hate hate and being pissed off... But then she became happy...and i became happy, you f
I requested this e-arc being unaware that Lunar Court was actually a part of the Alpha Girl series; the number eight installment to be exact. I was lucky enough the book could be read as a standalone without making me feel lost or overwhelmed by the events that took place in its predecessors.

The story follows our two main characters, Christopher and Cosette. Christopher is a werewolf with a childhood full of violence that still haunts him. Cosette is the fey who saved his life many years ago. Sh

After fighting the fight of their life and outing all the supernatural creatures, the battle is still not over for Chris and Cosette. Cosette is required to return to Lunar Fey court and take her place as princess, leaving Chris and all their unspoken feelings behind. But Chris is not ready to say goodbye, and he knows that Cosette is in danger, a danger he wants to protect her from. But what Chris doesn't know is that Fey is even mor

This really is an amazing series of books, the writing is superb from the minute you to start reading the first page to the very last. The characters grab you into their world, can’t wait for book 9.

My apologies I haven't read Lunar Court yet. Awaiting patiently as you all are.

I had been waiting for the release if this book what felt like forever. When I realized it was available, I quickly downloaded it and poof I had finished the book. 😔 I have so enjoyed the characters and am hungry for Lunar Court. Eli is going to an interesting character of mischief. Now to sit back and wait....

I received a free ARC from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I can honestly say I was super hyped for this book as soon as I finished the previous one in the series. Then time went by, because the author was not yet ready to release this book. So when I finally got approved for this book I was as pumped as I should have been. Oh was I wrong, this book was so good. I missed not getting enough of my other characters but getting more of Van, Chris, and Cosette, and oh a l

Omg omg OMG. I just love this series. Aileen is a genius and I am so lucky to have been asked to review it.

I want to say what the book is about. I really do but I feel that I will take the fun and mystery from the reader. So therefore grab book one and binge reading it. It’s amazing. Thank me later. You are welcome dear reader.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I had NO IDEA that this was the 8th book in this series. NONE!!! I saw the cover and description and was like, "heck yeah, I wanna read this!" Thank goodness the author didn't make me feel like I missed...EVERYTHING...I actually followed along really well and enjoyed this!!! Please keep this in mind when you read my review...I'm pretty sure my opinion on characters will be different than others.

Chris is a werewolf. Ok, obviously there's more to that statement. He's a damaged wer

Last summer I read and weirdly enjoyed Aileen Erin's Alpha Girl series, so when I had an opportunity to read the latest installment in that series as an ARC, I took it, despite the fact that I rarely read ARCs (way more pressure/commitment than I'm usually interested in).

So yes, these are werewolf books. I don't do a lot of paranormal reading because most of it tends to be too angsty/sexy/plain creepy, but sometimes you find a series that works, and I feel that way about Alpha Girl. I really lik

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
I love these characters so much, the interactions and character development were absolutely on point. The world building was also outstanding however I found the plot a little lacklustre and slow to climax. I could have done with a little more excitement earlier on.
When I requested this book I didn't realise that it was part of a series, fortunately the story within was

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think this one was my favorite yet!!! How do they just keep getting better???

Cosette is a fey princess--a flaming-sword wielding, kick butt and take names later kind of fey princess, who wants nothing to do with the fey Lunar Court but is bound to it by blood. Chris is a werewolf with a battered childhood. Controlled by the moon, he can't be bound to the Lunar Court without becoming a slave.

They can't be together, but they can't deny their feelings. So whe

Rating: 4 out of 5

Chris is the funniest, sweetest boy Cosette’s ever met. Despite the trauma he’s suffered, he still manages to brighten up everyone around him—even when he’s fighting a chapel full of demons. He’s exactly what Cosette needs in her life. He’s also a werewolf—and she’s from the Lunar Court, the only fey court with control over the werewolves, so she knows they can’t be together.

But when Chris goes missing, Cosette will do a

I originally marked the Lunar Court as a DNF because it felt like I missed too much in the previous books to continue it. I planned on reading the rest of the series first and then coming back to the lunar court. However, I got a nagging feeling that I should keep going after posting my original review and I'm so glad I did. The novel picked up its pace and I could not put it down from that point on. The story deepens and the characters become more intense. The author began to weave in flashback ...more

Aileen Erin’s LUNAR COURT is a creative addition to the Alpha Girl series. Cosette searches for Chris after he goes missing at the end of book seven. The two have feelings for each other, but a relationship between them would not work, because he is a werewolf, and she is a princess of the Lunar court. Chris would be enslaved by the Lunar Court fey who have the power to control the moon, unless he can find a way to break his lunar tie.

The characters are well developed. I really like Cosette and

*I received a complimentary copy of this book early for review purposes. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.*

I really enjoyed the depth of the characters. The world building was a little lacking for me however. This might have not been the case however if I had not started with book eight. Even so this is a great stand alone story.

If you like star-crossed lovers then this is a great pick for you. Stuck in a love that can never work in a world that will never allow them to c

I want to thank Netgalley for providing me with this book in exchange for my honest review.

I really enjoyed this book.
I didn’t realise this was the 8th in the series I haven’t read the other books.
However i actually really liked this book. It was a bit slow to start but when it picked up it was amazing!
I loved the characters and the relationships they had with each other.
I’ll defiantly be picking up the other books in this series.

I received this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

Man, I wasn't sure how I felt about Chris and Cosette. We've been seeing the push and pull between them for a while, but Fey and Fey Courts? I was wrong. LOVED this story. Completely ripped my heart out at one point. But good story. Ready for the next one.

Best paranormal YA book of the summer! This is my first Alpha Girls book and I really enjoyed the "he said, she said" aspect with each chapter. Both characters were so richly developed and you don't have to know the back story to enjoy or understand what is going on. Aileen Erin does an excellent job of set the scene and taking this story all the way through. I was happy and sad, excited and enraged. It was excellently written and enticed me to not only look up the other stories from this series ...more

Erin took us for a spin on this latest installment in the Alpha Girl Series. It is a departure, but one many have been waiting for. I for one have longed to see more of Chris and the Fae. She does a wonderful job of incorporating their backstories into the plot line. Despite that fact that it felt different, because it was different... solely focused on a one werewolf and the various Fae, her signature style was as brilliant as ever. Get your seatbelt on and keep all hands in the vehicle, you ar ...more

Oh my ghods. The mains are cardboard cutouts. The depiction of the fey is frankly absurd. The plot is literally deus ex machina!! There are better romances on the dime rack at the gas station. Just ... yuck.

Wow ok. So I asked for this book and it turns out to be the 8th in the series. I hadn’t read the others. Ignoring that fact.
The book was actually really good. It kept my attention though it starts a little slow, and very confusing (8th book) the author conveys the characters personality traits very well. Even though I haven’t read the previous books in the series I didn’t feel overly lost. She shows bonds formed over time and not instantly which I think makes this very special. I want to read t
Stephanie Mendoza the_immortal_library
Lol so I didn’t realize this was the 8th book in the series and I hadn’t read the other 7. Regardless, the book was enjoyable I love the characters, Eli reminds me of the Cheshire Cat. I love the bonds between the characters, how their pasts bring them together and help cement the bind further. I’m going to have to read the other 7.

Aileen Erin is a talented writer, whose character development is second to none. Her ability to make the reader a part of the story is incredible. I’ve enjoyed all of her books and look forward to future stories that she has to tell ..please keep writing forever

I love Aileen Erin and the alpha girl series, so I was ecstatic this book, 8th in the series is just as good as all its predecessors. The love story between Chris and Cosette is so adorable. I loved getting to know Chris better and was also happy as I hadn’t found Cosette that likeable in previous books, but we really get to know her here and her motivations. Amazing plot, emotional at times and plenty of twists and turns. Another great read from Ms. Erin .

I've loved all of Aileen Erin's books but my all time favorite has always been the first Alpha Girl book, until now. I laughed, I cried and I couldn't put this book down. The love story between Cosette and Chris was awesome. Chris has been one of my fav characters throughout but I found Cosette a bit standoffish when her character was introduced I believe in the second book of the series. Boy was I wrong! You have to project strength when you're a Fey Princess. The epicness of this couple almost ...more

This world is wonderfully engaging. I am in love with all the characters for different reasons. In this book we get to see behind the scenes with Chris and Cosette.

Along the way (and, really, you should start from the beginning), we have seen little hints and teases about Chris and Cosette. Cosette is a secret powerhouse of sorts. She likes to pretend she has less power than she does, but that's kind of the way of life at her court. Her mother is... a nightmare. We end up learning more about he
