Moonmates exist, but getting together is going to be a beast….
When Adrian Rothschild skipped his “werewolf puberty,” he assumed he was, somehow, human. But he was wrong, and he’s about to go through his Turn with a country between him and his Pack—scared, alone, and eight years late.
Dr. Tate Lewis’s werewolf supremacist father made his Turn miserable, and now Tate works for Camp H.O.W.L. to ease the transition for young werewolves. He isn’t expecting to offer guidance to a grown man—or find his moonmate in Adrian. Tate doesn’t even believe in the legendary bond; after all, his polygamist father claimed five. But it’s clear Adrian needs him, and if Tate can let his guard down, he might discover he needs Adrian too.
A moonmate is a wolf’s missing piece, and Tate is missing a lot of pieces. But is Adrian up to the challenge?
About the Author
Bru spent more than a decade writing for newspapers before making the jump to fiction. She now works in reference and readers' advisory in a Midwestern library, though she still finds it hard to believe someone's willing to pay her to talk about books all day. Most evenings you can find her curled up with a book or her laptop. Whether it's creating her own characters or getting caught up in someone else's, there's no denying that Bru is happiest when she's engrossed in a story. She and her husband have two children, which means a lot of her books get written from the sidelines of various sports practices.

4.5 stars I think I found another series to add to my favorite series list. I loved the idea of moonmates with these two. We had two males that basically treated each other and acted maturely. They actually communicated with each other, even when they had to take time to figure things out for themselves first. In other words, no manufactured angst to advance the plot. I love those books. Adrian is a member of a werewolf family. All werewolves shift on the first new moon after their 19th birthday. All except Adrian, that is. He has lived with that fact for almost a decade, living his life as a human, working as the head of marketing for his family's big corporation. But for some reason, on his 27th birthday, he is feeling irritable and out of sorts. Everything is bothering him. Being in Indianapolis for meetings, he postpones his return trip to Portland so that he isn't flying on a full moon. Unfortunately, it isn't until later he figures out that his irritability is due to his Turn, after he has passed out in public. Tate is a psychologist who works as a counselor in a high-end camp for werewolves going through their first turn. Getting an emergency call, he and another counselor rush to Indianapolis to collect Adrian and get him somewhere save before moonset. Immediately, both of these two guys realize there is something between them from the minute that they meet. Unfortunately, Tate's horrible childhood makes him fight the bond that is clearly developing between the two. I loved both of these guys. Tate was such a good person/werewolf, and I loved seeing him in his psychologist/counselor mode with Adrian and other campers. His temperament was such a calming influence. And Adrian was another great guy. I loved how he was willing to sit back and give Tate the time to come to grips with what was happening between them. I've already read Under a Blue Moon, but I would love to read more in this series. There are a number of secondary characters both in this book and Under a Blue Moon that would be worth exploring their stories.
