Author: Emma Meade
Title: Under the desert moon
Series: No
Genre: Paranormal romance
My copy: Epub received by author
Purchase: AMAZON

My Rating: 3.5 stars

17 year old Erin Harris spends her time daydreaming, hoping to escape her small town life in Copperfield, Arizona. When a movie crew arrives unexpectedly to shoot a vampire film over the summer, Erin’s small town world changes forever. Erin is positive she has seen the star, James Linkin before in a thirty year old TV show. He hasn’t aged a day. How is this possible? Erin is determined to find out, but how will James handle the scrutiny of an all too intelligent teenage girl?

My thoughts

I really liked this book it was good, it was more than just a nice read which is why I gave it 3.5 stars instead of just 3 stars. But it wasn´t amazing, It was good and worth reading but it was not a book that will stay with me for a long time like some books.

I liked the story line. It was different but not a the same time. It was also kind of exciting when everything seemed to unravel and make it impossible for James and Erin in so many ways.

I also liked their love story and the fact that Erin wasn´t all that accepting at first. she was a real down to earth sort of girl. James on the other hand had his head somewhere up in space.
But I guess they sort of complimented each other in a really good way. 

But I wasn´t all that impressed with the characters over all. I kind of had a hard time to relate to any of them. And I think it´s because of the way the story was written. It was difficult for me to get a good feel of their feelings and emotions. It was all sort of light weight if that makes any sense??
The ending was very realistic and probably how an end for a teenage girl who is down to earth would end in real life but this is a story! And it is a paranormal story, I wanted something more. Something unexpected and totally more up in the stars or something. 

It was good read. and it was worth reading I didn´t feel like I wasted my time but there just wasn´t anything WOW about it.
