Forbidden Moon by Lexi DeHalo


Adam Anderson must put aside his broken heart for his Pack. Taking on a dangerous mission deep within the mountains is a step in the right direction. When Adam is severely injured, he is rescued by a lone shifter with a past as troubled as his own. What evolves from there is a romance that awakens feelings he hasn’t had since the death of his mate.

After his pack’s betrayal, Cersin Everett swore never to trust again. He resigned himself to a solitary life far away from both pack and past. However, a hunting trip turned rescue mission brings him a man who can teach him what it means to hope again.

As Sin shows Adam his world, it becomes harder for them to deny their growing feelings. But theirs is a forbidden match, an unmated pairing. They will have to either surrender their newfound love or be torn apart by the world outside the sanctuary of Sin’s home.


Lexi DeHalo once again delivered a wonderfully sexy tale with the second book in her Be-Were series, Forbidden Moon. Adam Anderson had lost his mate, never binding them together for life. Cersin Everett lived on his own for years, dismayed at tragedy that stuck his family; together the two men learned to trust and love again.

While on a pack mission Adam is severely injured and rescued by lone wolf Sin. The attraction between the two shifters is immediate, although past experiences at first held them back from surging forward. Soon events changed the course of the two men’s lives and they came together in companionship and eventually love.

The relationship between Sin and Adam is an unusual one. 
Ms. DeHalo delivered poignant drama that accentuated the lives of the two wolves. They are not fated mates and thus are fearful of falling in love. Additionally, events in both their lives have led them to an impasse where neither dared cross. Ms. DeHalo delivered growth and maturity as Sin and Adam came to terms with their attraction, lust and love.

Surprises that I had not expected were added in the story (no spoilers) but gave light to the background of the men, as they came full circle.

Sin was a dominant wolf who desired Adam, wanting him to submit in the bedroom but not deferring in their everyday lives. He was powerful and foreboding, sexy a hell. I would not say they had a D/s relationship, but Adam had no issue submitting to Sin when it came to sex.

Adam was taken to heights he never dreamt could be achieved as he permitted Sin to take him into subspace and deliver mind-blowing sex. Although Adam was an enforcer for his pack, Ms. DeHalo portrayed him as a nurturer; loving and caring, family first.

I was endeared to both characters, whether they sat in front of the fire getting to know each other or upped the ante in a game of poker.

Forbidden Moon demonstrated that love finds a person when and where he least expects it. If a chance is to be taken in life, then it should always be in regards to love, because you may not get a second chance.

Beautifully written story, drama, suspense and hot sex. A must read.

A four handcuff review.
