Mena had all she wanted in life: a nice house, money, a successful husband who treated her like a queen.
That was, until she found out her marriage was all a lie, and things she never thought could exist, did.
Vampires are real.
Werewolves are real.
And Mena is not human anymore.
Mena would seem to have it all, a happy marriage, lovely home and a comfortable lifestyle but what if everything she believed in was a sham? Mena's life is about to come crashing down when she discovers her husband is a cheat and what's more, he has a violent side to his nature that has been kept hidden from her. Mena makes her choice and leaves him but with so much going on inside her head she needs to stop at a hotel. When she does, she meets a stranger named Jaxon who seems determined to get in her way. Mena has had enough of men trying to control her for one night but when her husband turns up things quickly go from bad to worse. Mena decides to trust Jaxon but everything she thought was fantasy is about to come crashing into her reality as Mena discovers the truth and it's not going to be a fairytale!
Ok, well first and foremost, Accepting The Moon is a short read but surprisingly there's a lot going on here. It starts with the heroine Mena confronting her cheating husband but she's no wilting miss, no she stands up to him and gives as good as she gets! How he hid his violent side from her previously I'm not sure but clearly Mena has had enough and I loved that she refuses to stay around and be abused by him. Mena clearly has a backbone and I think as this series progresses this will quickly turn her into a very strong female role model. She is brave and unafraid to take chances and I feel a lot of readers will be cheering her on!
I mentioned Jaxon but he is not the only new man Mena meets as this story progressed. There's a certain young man called Phoenix who makes an appearance and holy hotness batman does he raise the temperature! At first I thought Jaxon would be the perfect male to comfort Mena but with the addition of Phoenix I'm all of a dither! The words alpha male are frequently bandied about but it's the perfect description for Phoenix, so excuse me while I take a minute and fan myself!
So a woman who is going to rock the boat and seriously kick ass, two sexy but very different men to tempt her and then of course there's that whole new world Mena has just been dragged into! I think this is going to be a fun series and I adore the humour that sneaks into Ms Haigwood's writing. They say keep your friends close and your enemies closer but which will turn out to be Mena's true enemy?
