Celeste Parker is used to hearing scary stories about werewolves -Legend’s Run is famous for them. She’s used to everything in the small town until Brandon Maddox moves to Legend’s Run and Celeste finds herself immediately drawn to the handsome new student.
But when, after an unnerving visit with a psychic, she encounters a pack of wolves and gorgeous, enigmatic Brandon, she must discover whether his transformation is more than legend or just a trick of the shadows in the moonlight.Her best friends may never forgive her if she gives up her perfect boyfriend, Nash, for Brandon, who’s from the wrong side of town. But she can’t deny her attraction or the strong pull he has on her. Brandon may be Celeste’s hero, or he may be the most dangerous creature she could encounter in the woods of Legend’s Run.Psychic predictions, generations-old secrets, a town divided, and the possibility of falling in love with a hot and heroic werewolf are the perfect formula for what happens . . . once in a full moon.

I think Ellen Schreiber is my newest favorite YA author. I loved the first book in the series Vampire Kissesand she continues to amaze me in her newest release, Once In A Full Moon.Celeste Parker had it all. Two best friends, Ivy and Abby. The hottest boyfriend in all of Legend’s Run High School, football hero Nash. From the girls cheering from the sidelines while the boys played sports to just hanging out, Celeste, Nash, Ivy and her boyfriend Jake and Abby and her boyfriend Dylanwere the perfect click of six. They thought life was all laid out before them, they would be together forever. They would go to the same colleges after high school and then get married.When they are camping one night telling ghost stories, Nash tells the story of Legend’s Run Werewolf Lore. Spooking himself and the others, Celeste can’t get the story out of her mind. When Mr. Worthington, an elderly gentleman that lives in the home Celeste volunteers at confirms the lore, Celeste decides to do a paper for her school essay on werewolves. The tale says that if one is bitten by a wolf, he will become a werewolf.

Life had become routine on the Eastside as Celeste researches the Folk Lore of Legend’s Run, until newcomer Brandon Maddox walks into class. Celeste feels a strong connection to Brandon from the first moment she laid eyes on him. The problem is that he is from the Westside of town, and East and West just don’t mix. On a dare, the girls go to the Westside to see a psychic. If they win, the boys must be their servants for an entire day.

When the good Dr. Meadows forewarns Celeste of wolves and a kiss on the full moon, Celeste thinks she is crazy. As she walks home a snow storm hits and she becomes lost in the woods and almost attacked by wolves. Who should her rescuer be? The mysterious Brandon Maddox. Wounded in the rescue, Celeste tends to his wound, and magic ignites.

Obsessed with Brandon Maddox and unable to get him out of her mind, Celeste starts to question her relationship with Nash. Now she must figure out the path she wants to travel, and if the Werewolf Lore of Legend’s Run holds merit or is just that, a lore created long ago.

Once In A Full Moon is fast paced and has the perfect mix of suspense and romance. I couldn’t put this book down once I started.  Fantastic, “Must-Read“.
