    Under the Orange Moon is a fantastic read! It is a well-crafted

    Under the Orange Moon is a fantastic read! It is a well-crafted story that, despite primarily being about two characters, incorporated an entire cast beautifully.

    The story revolves around the Mathews family and Ben McKenna, who for all intents and purposes, is also a Mathews. Dylan, the only girl in the Mathews' clan and twin sister of Jonah, has been smothered and teased her whole life - by both her overbearing four older brothers and Ben. The boys even nicknamed her Weed. At twenty-two, she's trying to figure out what's next in her life, how she can get some privacy, and whether or not she can get over Ben. Ben, whose family life has always been less than stellar, has returned home for a visit. He picks up with the Mathews clan as if he never left. And he seems determined that things be different this time with Dylan. However, he has to figure out if he can trust love.

    I delighted in Ms. Frances' inclusion of the entire Mathews family as it went far in illustrating the importance of family and the strong foundation a loving and supportive family provides. This was an important element to the story. Ben's parents and his interactions with them broke my heart. It impressed upon me the power of words and their lasting effects.

    Despite Ben's closeness withe the Mathews family, despite the love and support he's always received from them, his parents' words and actions left him feeling lake a bad person - unworthy of love. Especially unworthy of love from the one girl he's always desired it from.

    There's a lot going on in Under the Orange Moon. I kinda feel as though the story belonged to them all. The antics of Brandon, Charlie, Hugh, and Jonah were fun. Linda, the Mathews matriarch, was the quintessential mom. Even Carl, the deceased patriarch, played an important role. It's how they all circle the wagons, so to speak, when Dylan was hurting that spoke to my heart. I even appreciated that Ben had caring professors surrounding him for support when he needed it. Under the Orange Moon is also about accepting love, realizing your own worth, and not letting go of the life you want.

    Obviously, I rather enjoyed this story. It made me feel good although there were times when I was so frustrated - usually with Ben. :) The epilogue was the perfect ending. I don't know if we'll see more from the Mathews or not but I certainly wouldn't mind. The story flowed well and I adored her use of multiple POVs. Ms. Frances has written an impressive debut.

    MY THOUGHTS~ I received an ARC for review.
    This book sucked me in from the very beginning with it's friends-to-lovers story. I love reading these. I couldn't put it down! It was THAT good!
    Under the Orange Moon is full of love, family, friendships, and the road to growing up and maturity. I loved seeing how the characters developed and getting to know each one of them.
    I really don't have any complaints about this author's work at all! In fact, I was only disappointed to see the story end. It was wrapped up very nicely, but I just didn't want it to be over! 
    This book was very well written and flowed well throughout. I will definitely be on the lookout for more from Adrienne Frances!

    Good

    Liked the characters, story. It was written in 3rd person, I had a little bit of difficulty reading it. Most of the books I have read has been a character's POV.Overall, a good book.

    This story was such a sweet romance and has so much about learni

    This story was such a sweet romance and has so much about learning to forgive yourself and others. There comes a time when you need to grow up and grow out of the shadows of your parents and learn that you won’t make the same mistakes they make and that you aren’t exactly the same person they are/were. You have to embrace the things that make you happy and stop torturing yourself and making yourself suffer for no reason when happiness is right in front of you.
    Ben has been sneaking into his best friend’s sister’s (Dylan) room forever. They spend the nights cuddled up in her bed. It is so sweet. Ben is also known as a player though and right when something gets heated between him and Dylan he takes off.
    Dylan has always had a thing for Ben and always found comfort in his arms. He has returned and that spark that she had for him is still there. What will happen now if he climbs into her bed??? Of course, the sparks will have to ignite into a fire but how long will the fire burn???
    Ben fears he is not good enough for Dylan and knows that her brothers will think the same thing. After a tragic event he pushes her away which punishes them both. I was heartbroken for both Ben and Dylan because I really thought they were happier when they were together. You could feel the joy in both characters but you knew something was going to happen because they were keeping everything a secret.
    Will Ben finally realize he is good enough for Dylan and can love and treat her the way she needs to be? Can he realize he isn’t the person his parents always told him he was? I felt a little heartbroken for Ben because I thought he deserved so much more than what he was getting. He didn’t need to be so hard on himself. There were also times that I wish Dylan would have pushed more for Ben’s attention although I know she said with his personality it would have sent him running in the other direction. Great story though with a fabulous ending!
