Under the Desert Moon
The following review is my opinion and not a paid review. I received a free copy of the book from author for my honest opinion.
Erin Harris is a 17 year old girl who lives in a small town. She is kind of a loner who likes staying to herself. All Erin wants is to make it through high school and then go on to college. She wants to get out of the small town she lives in and away from her alcoholic father. Erin loves to take pictures and hopes one day to become a photographer.
Erin's twin brother comes running in one day to announce that a movie is going to be filmed in their home town of Copperfield, Arizona. Erin and Nick go down to the locale cafe where the movie crew and cast are hanging out. They find out that the movie is going to be about a vampire. Everyone in Copperfield is applying for parts as an extra in the movie. Erin gets herself a job taking pictures of the movie as it is being filmed. Nick gets a job as an assistant to one of the main stars in the movie.
While sitting at the cafe and eating her hamburger Erin locks eyes with a very handsome dude. She finds out later that he is the star of the movie. His name is James Linkin. Erin knows that she has seen him before but where? Then it hits her she saw him in an old tv show that she use to watch with her mother on vhs tapes. She is like no way it can't be him, he has not aged he still looks the same. James is hiding something. Can Erin find out what he is hiding?
Erin starts spending a lot of time with James so that she can do a little investigating and find out his secret. The more she hangs out with James the more attracted she becomes to him. James and Erin both fall head over hills as they say for each other real fast. Erin wants more than anything to be with James but she doesn't see how it could ever be possible because she will not leave Nick alone with their alcoholic father. Will Erin and James find a way to be together? Is it even possible?
Erin is a 17 year old girl but she is very mature for her age. But of course she has had no choice but to grow up real fast with an alcoholic father. Not only has she had to take care of herself all these years but she has taken care of her brother as well. And she has probably had to take care of her father too on more than one occasion. She has probably been the parent and her father the child at times.
If you are one of my blog followers then you know that I love reading about vampires and by now I guess you have already figured out the fact that I highly recommend you pick up your own copy of Under the Desert Moon, not tomorrow, not next week but today. But be on alert Under the Desert moon will suck you in from the first word and will not let go until the last word. Don't do like I did and put off reading this book. Why? Because I wish I had not waited so long. I was asked by the author Emma Meade to review Under the Desert Moon and would like to take this opportunity now to apologize to her for taking so long to read it and review it. And to say thank you Emma for letting me read Under the Desert Moon. I look forward to reading more of Emma's work in the future.
