‘Moon Chilled’ by @CaitlinRicci #LGBT #Review

Why I read this book: We were provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.



When Shae was thirteen she ran away from a sexually and physically abusive alpha but getting to safety meant leaving her mate, Maiki, behind. Now that she’s twenty-three Shae has made an isolated life for herself with only the wolf inside of herself for company.

Then Maiki calls her after a decade of silence, asking her to come back, and Shae cannot say no to her mate. Maiki is a seer and she’s had a frightening dream of the pack being demolished and the old farmhouse the alpha lives in going up in flames…



This was my first f/f book and I must admit that I was a bit apprehensive about reading it.  Why?  Honestly I have been reading m/m for so long I wasn’t sure I could get into anything else.  So long that its been years since I have picked up a book that even HAD a female as one of the main characters.  I also have friends who have read f/f books where there is too much sex and hardly a story line.  So yes I have shied away from the f/f genre.  Now WHY did I pick it up.

I can not tell a lie, I find the members of my same sex attractive.  Gay for you?  I would be one of those.  So after many years of m/m books I decided it was time to put on my big girl panties and I broke my self imposed exile in the land of m/m romance books to read this f/f romance.  It sounded like a very interesting story line, plus it had shifters and we all know I am a sucker for those.
Well, all I can say is this was the perfect f/f story for me too start with.  This book is proof positive that love is love no matter the gender.  While reading it I wasn’t focused on the fact that I was reading about two women, I focused on the love story.  A story of heartache and pain.  The pain of leaving your one true love behind despite the painful realization that she is your mate.  The one person who was made just for you.  There was no sex in this book, which I was somewhat relieved and somewhat let down by.  But let me explain.
There is no need for sex in this one because the story focuses on being there for the love of your life.  Dropping everything and rushing to their side because they are in a time of need.  That you would put yourself in danger to help your mate, that right there is why you don’t need it.  Because the connection between Shae and Maiki is powerful enough.

Now why I was slightly let down, well that was all on me.  I had pumped myself up for it, prepared myself for a completely new experience in a book only to not get one.  But you know what?  That is ok because the story is beautiful and it is one that I am glad I picked up.  Again I will say it is why I truly believe that LOVE is LOVE no mater the gender.
