Hailey Burke is feeling restless. Ever
since finding out that her boyfriend Todd has been having an
affair with his secretary, Hailey has wanted to retaliate in
turn but has not done so. Calling her friend Austin, she asks
to come over and doesn’t hear his answer. Now she knows that
she should have listened because when she walks in Austin’s
house, HE is there. Zack Creighton, the bane of her existence
and the man she loves to hate. Or does she? Hate him that is.
Hailey knows her feelings have to be because of the full moon
because there is no way she is going to have a relationship
with Zack Creighton.
Zack Creighton knows that Hailey is less
than fond of him. She lets no opportunity slip by to show and
say in not so many words exactly how she feels; he is the scum
of the earth. Tired of her insinuations that he is a
womanizing Neanderthal, Zack seduces her with the promise that
it is only going to be for one night. He figures he will get
the perky and feisty redhead out of his system and be none the
wiser. Evidently the full moon is playing tricks with Zack
because one night is not nearly enough.
Bad Moon Rising was just
the book I needed to read. Having heard about the “full moon”
phenomena many times and what it can do, I sat back and
prepared to enjoy Zack and Hailey’s story. I figured Hailey
would cave and in fact, thought it would take her longer. I
love Zack’s seduction of her. He didn’t hold anything back
and gave her his all. It was simply steamy, stunning, and
I love the Midsummer Night’s Steam
stories offered by Samhain and Bad Moon Rising
is the perfect addition to this series.
