This is another one of those self published books that is really good, but you see this god awful cover and think "this will be cheesy". Don't let the cover art sway you, this is a fun read. Please be warned this review does include some spoilers, so if you're reading this series and don't like being spoiled, you may want to stop now. :-)

Synopsis: Mother, wife, private investigator...vampire. Six years ago federal agent Samantha Moon was the perfect wife and mother, your typical soccer mom with the minivan and suburban home. Then the unthinkable happens, an attack that changes her life forever. And forever is a very long time for a vampire.
Now in VAMPIRE MOON, sequel to MOON DANCE, private investigator Samantha Moon finds herself hunting down a powerful crime lord and protecting an innocent woman from her ruthless ex-husband — all while two very different men vie for her heart. And as the stakes grow higher and her cases turn personal, Samantha Moon will do whatever it takes to protect the innocent and bring two cold-blooded killers to justice — her own brand of justice.
Aside from all the dark justice going on, I liked that Sam finally got a look at Kingsley in his Werewolf form. The author has a very interesting take on Werewolves, one I never heard (or read) before. I’m curious to see what becomes of their relationship.
I even enjoyed her witty conversations with Detective Sherbet. They have a cool dynamic. I feel a little bad for him. He knows crazy and unexplainable things are happening and he looks to her for clarity, but of course she puts him off for obvious reasons.
I totally love that finally, after being dogged out and kept from her kids, Sam finally got her ex, the lowlife Danny, by the balls (excuse my French!). He totally got everything he deserved…he probably could have stood to get a little more misery. It was odd how his personality did such a 180 from her pre-vampire days. I was completely happy that she was back with her kids by the end of the book. The ending wow…great cliffhanger. I was sitting there saying aloud…”OMG, who is it??!!?” LOL, too funny. I love when I react to books in that way. I have a feeling I know who the mysterious Fang is, but we’ll see. I can’t wait for American Vampire!
