Bark at the Moon
Bark at the Moon by Julia Davies is a fast paced and very sexy paranormal homoerotic romance. It is the first book that I’ve read by this author, and it definitely won’t be my last. I really liked both of the heroes, Ret and Andy, and I loved their easy acceptance and readiness to live and have a long loving life together.
The moment Ret laid eyes on Andy, he knew he was different. Not only was Andy one of the most fascinating and attractive men he’s ever met, he’s pretty sure that Andy is the life long mate he’s been longing for. There’s just one problem… Ret is a werewolf, Andy is not. Ret’s not so sure that once Andy finds out about his love affair with the full moon once a month, that Andy’s going to be understanding about it. As the men act on their immediate attraction and bond they have together, will they be able to look past their difference and find a way to have a happy life together?
I really liked this book a lot. I liked the pack politics and the story itself moved along quite smoothly making it a quick and easy read. There isn’t a lot of angst or conflict in this book, and that was okay for me. I was in the mood for a light and sexy read, and Bark at the Moon really filled the bill for me. I liked how both heroes trusted the bond between them and worked to accept the differences between them. I do wish the book had been a longer book. There were several interesting secondary characters that I liked and I really would like to read more about not only Ret and Andy, but the other men (werewolves) too.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a website or blog on Ms. Davies that I couldn’t follow. I’m going to keep an eye out for future releases by her and I’m looking forward to hopefully reading more about her werewolves, their love-lives and their interesting pack politics.

It's just your typical love story: new guy in town meets his ideal man, who turns out to be a werewolf...
Andy McEwen thinks he's going to like it here; new town, new home, new job, and then there's the leather-clad, motorcycle-riding sex-god who's bed he woke up in this morning. And who is about to turn his world upside down.
Ret Alexander is a werewolf. He knew from the moment he met Andy that they were destined to be mates but Andy is human, with no knowledge of their world, much less that werewolves even exist. Ret has never heard of another wolf being mated to a human, but he knows that he has to try, and that means introducing Andy to the knowledge that not only are werewolves real, but that most of the people he's met in town are part of the pack.
When Andy learns the truth, he runs, scared by this new world he's been brought into. Can he learn to trust Ret enough to give their relationship a chance?
