After battling werewolves and evil aunties, Bryar Rose is ready to enjoy her new life. No more crazy aunties. Her curse is toast. And Bry’s new man, Knox, is literally a dream come true. Best of all, Bry will soon attend a regular high school. Forget those sketchy tutors! To get ready, Bry is dedicating the rest of her summer to some serious back-to-school shopping with her best friend, Elle. It’s a blast, except for one thing:

Mysterious strangers are following Bry across Manhattan.

All these stalkers have oddly familiar scents and an uncanny ability to slip into the shadows whenever Bry tries to confront them. Even worse, their presence is making Knox act crazy with a capital C.

But Bry’s having none of it. Enough of her life has already been ruined by secrets. With Elle’s help, Bry plans to confront these strangers, find out what they want, and send them packing. Trouble is, the truth about their identity won’t be so easy to manage, especially when Bry finds out how these stalkers could change her future with Knox…and not for the better.

***An interim novella between WOLVES AND ROSES and SHIFTERS AND GLYPHS***

1. Wolves And Roses (Fall 2017)
1.5 Moonlight and Midtown (Spring 2018)
2. Shifters And Glyphs (Fall 2018)

Perfect for readers who love young adult books, contemporary fantasy, fairy tales, satire/comedy, paranormal romance, fairies, magic users, shapeshifters, and coming of age stories.

My Review:

Bryar Rose is getting ready for a night out with Knox her new boyfriend or who her wolf calls mate. Bry is worried about their upcoming outing as she is worried about her wolf showing herself at inappropriate times. She doesn’t want her naked rear end to end up on Youtube. But not to worry Knox has a plan that can help Bry learn to tame her wolf.

Oh and with all this shifting Bry is almost out of clothes. Every time she shifts her clothes is destroyed. Bry and her best friend Elle has plans to go shopping at the fairy shops which could spell disaster for both of them because going shopping with Bryar Rose can be deadly. But a girl has to look good no matter what the cost.

Bryar is also having trouble with being followed but every time she looks over her shoulder to see who it is they disappear into the shadows. Who is following Bryar and what do they want? No need to worry because her bff is going to help her catch whoever is following her and take them down.

I love stories like Moonlight And Midtown where fae, witches, werewolves among other paranormal creatures all join together or at least some do. Oh and did I forget to mention the fairy tale character like Cinderella, Prince Charming, Little Red Riding Hood? I love the combination of the two. Fairy tales and paranormal creatures in one story, brilliant!

Christina Bauer is one of my favorite authors of all time and I have read many of her books and loved each and every one of them. They are all so incredibly amazing. Christina knows how to spend a story that keeps you coming back for more. Moonlight And Midtown is short read but it is so full of adventure and excitement that will keep you turning the pages soaking it all up from the first page until the last. I can’t wait to read more in this incredible world.  

I would recommend Moonlight And Midtown to fans of fairy tales and the paranormal world.
