Deception is book five in the Blue Moon Saloon series by Anna Lowe. The story is full of suspense and romance.
It can be read as a standalone, but this one ties up the purity group neatly, so yes you can read it alone, but I would recommend reading the series in full.
Ms. Lowe has become one of my favorite authors. She has a way of drawing you into the lives of her characters and the emotional struggles they each go through. I love how the characters in the Blue Moon Saloon series each have struggled and survived some terrible and bad circumstances. It drives home that the world is not perfect that we each have difficult times and that their is hope know matter how small.
Drew is a bear shifter who has come to the Blue Moon Saloon to help out his cousins. He’s quiet and lade back, but when it counts his big bear can really through down.
Summer is a wolf shifter who invariantly helped the Blue Bloods, a group focused on purity in the shifter races, do bad things. She has major guilt and is looking for redemption and peace.
I enjoyed both Drew and Summer. They where a cute couple to watch Fate put together. Summer has a lot of guilt about what she did and can’t see herself mating anyone even her true mate; because she feels he and the others can’t look past her past. When a secret mission comes along Summer will help the Blue Moon Saloon pack and in doing so she will have to go home and face her past. She needs this and Drew has to let her go.
Deception is an exquisite story of redemption, trust, and selfless love. The characters are complex and sympathetic. Just like all the previous installments in the Blue Moon Saloon I ran the gauntlet of emotions and was rooting for Drew and Summer to both find what they needed.
Rated: 4 Stars
