Once in a blue moon, opposites find they’re a perfect match.

Nick Perry is tired of helping people with their marriages, so when a spot opens up to work with teens at Camp H.O.W.L., he jumps at it. He doesn’t expect to fall in lust with the dreamy new camp doctor, Drew Welch. But Drew is human, and Nick has seen secrets ruin too many relationships to think that a human/werewolf romance can go anywhere.

Happy-go-lucky Drew may not sprout claws, but he’s been part of the Were community all his life. He has no trouble fitting in at the camp—except for Nick’s stubborn refusal to acknowledge the growing attraction between them and his ridiculous stance on dating humans. Fate intervenes when one of his private practice patients threatens Drew’s life. Will the close call help Nick to see a connection like theirs isn’t something to let go of?

It is hard enough for a were to find his true mate but what happens when a were finds the mate he is meant to be with but that mate is a human? That is the issue Nick is having with Drew.

Nick and Drew meet in a plane heading to CAMP H.O.W.L. Nick is already having issues with the plane ride because his normal were instincts are heightened because there is a blue moon on the night of his plane ride. So with all the noise and smells among the plane, Nick is slightly irritated or at least he was until this amazing smelling man takes the seat next to him.

Drew is on his way to Camp H.O.W.L to become the new doctor they have on premises plus he will have his own practice in town as well. It is unusual for the camp to let a human in among them but Drew was raised as part of a pack so he knows how to handle himself around other weres. Not to mention he has spent some time previously at the camp and knows most, if not all, the staff.

What neither Drew or Nick is aware of is they are both heading to the same place and both are to be new members of staff there. When the plane has to make an unexpected detour instead of their original destination, both men decide to take advantage overhead fact that they are both undeniably attracted to the other and they spend the night together. Neither expects to see the other again after their night of passion. But fate has a way of bringing people together again when it is meant to be.

When Nick and Drew find out they will be working together, Drew is happy about it and hopes to get to know Nick better. But Nick does not share the same feelings. Though his wolf really wants to be with Drew, Nick does not think it is possible for a human and a were to make an equal relationship work. So Nick pushed Drew away.

It is not easy for either man to stay away from the other. Drew is trying to respect Nick’s wishes and Nick is fighting his wolf for all that it is worth.

Can two very different men with different views figure out a way to make it work or is it just better for them to keep their distance from the other?

This series so far has been an amazing read. I enjoyed this book just as much, if not more than the first book. I look forward to more books in the Camp H.O.W.L. series as they come out. I am totally hooked on this series. It is a great read. And I definitely look forward to more!!!

Galley copy of Under a Blue Moon (Camp H.O.W.L. #2) provided by Dreamspinner Press in exchange of an honest review.


Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time.

I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books.

Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.

Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.
