When Juniper’s friend Elysa invites her to dinner, the last thing she expects is to be set up on a blind date. And if that wasn’t the worst surprise ever, her date turns out to be her middle school nemesis, Ansel. Except now he looks like a male supermodel, with his dark hair, broody eyes, and a chiseled muscular body that makes her swoon. How can she ever say no to him, even if he teased her mercilessly when they were kids?
Ansel, a broody, freedom-loving werepanther, was ready to move to another country when his brother Kye invites him to dinner, only to find out he’s being set up on a blind date. When it turns out his date is Juniper, his long-forgotten crush, he can’t help but try to take things further with her. After all, he’s only been dreaming of her all his life. And women have never been able to say no to him in the past - his reputation as a man-whore was well deserved.
Their first date turns south very quickly, however. It’s full moon in the mysterious town of Regiville, and all kinds of creatures come out to play. Juniper is attacked by a beast and may or may not turn into…something she only thought was an urban myth. Don’t miss out on this tale of incredible adventures, as the two old friends try to untangle the mess they find themselves in and slowly fall in love with each other.
But that doesn't work out quite like he intended. When Juniper is bitten by a creature, he needs to not only prevent her from killing and making the condition permanent, but he needs to make sure she stays alive as well. You see, there's something strange going on in town and Juniper and Ansel on the trail to finding out what it is.
There are quite a few twists and surprises thrown in that really kept me on the edge of my seat. I don't want to give them all away, but I dare you to try and guess what they were. The surprises were timed perfectly to give the ending some excitement. And there's one last little one at the end that just made me smile.
I will definitely be going back to see how this series all began.
