Full Moon Kisses by Ellen Schreiber

This review will have spoilers for the first two books in the series. This is the final book in the Full Moon series. I really thought this would be a long running series like Vampire Kisses, so I was surprised when I read this was the final one.

Having a boyfriend who is a werewolf is not easy, but having an ex who is a werewolf could be dangerous. Celeste is torn between her love for Brandon and the pity and compassion she feels for her ex-Nash. Celeste kissed Nash so he would remember being a werewolf, but remembering just seems to make Nash feel worse. Nash begs Celeste to accompany him to Dr. Meadows to get a psychic reading. Dr. Meadows says Nash can be cured, but Celeste knows there is only one bottle of cure at the moment. She makes another dire prediction for Celeste, that a werewolf wants to turn her. Should Nash take it to make sure everyone is safe or should Brandon, so that he can be normal again? Along with that decision comes another problem. A group of boys come to town and they just may be lycan themselves. One werewolf is too many, so how can Legend's Run handle a whole pack!Choices must be made and Celeste may lose her werewolf boyfriend forever.

I did not like this as much as the Vampire Kisses series, although I think this had a better ending. Celeste seemed too wishy-washy with her feelings. She loves Brandon, puts up with too much from Nash, and develops a crush on another character. While this did not seem as bad when Raven had these same problems in VK, it just did not work with Celeste's sweet and caring nature. I loved the use of the legend in this series though to explain why there were werewolves, but the cure was never really explained well.

Favorite Character: Brandon. He is loyal, caring-although almost too caring at times, and helps his grandparents. He can also communicate with animals. He never doubts his feelings for Celeste and in a way puts up with a lot from her.

Favorite Quote: "It's because he's different-the opposite of you and everything you want. The unknown, an adventure. Maybe it's about disclosing a rebellious and dangerous part of yourself that you find thrilling." This is a pretty typical definition of a crush on a bad boy.

I liked the ending and the tie in to the legend. Celeste just did not measure up to Raven. 3.5 cups of cocoa.
