Some wolves were never meant for a mate...

Dr. Jason Ayers unleashes all of his rage and his frustration through fists and brute force in an underground boxing ring. The werewolf may be the pack’s doctor, but he can’t even heal his coma-stricken father after the Nero Organization’s attack stopped his heart. And as his Pack brothers settle down around him, he still refuses to believe in the fairy tale notion that every wolf has a true mate...

In hiding and on the run, nurse Kilani Akamu is a loose end that Nero is desperate to tie up. She can't afford to be attracted to a doctor—especially one as unexpectedly hot and complex as Jason. Yet the sexual sparks arcing between them are undeniable...and Kilani's precognitive senses warn her that temptation is inevitable.

All it takes is one touch to send Jason's wolf howling. But even if he could protect her from Nero, he can't protect her from himself...

Illegal shifter fight clubs, ancient native magic, and evil corporations oh my. HARVEST MOON is filled with tons of fun ideas and riveting plot. I really enjoyed the idea of an evil shifter corporation with typical evil corporate plans to rule over all shifters and kill anyone in the way. Nero, the aforementioned  evil corporation is fleshed out in the previous installments of this series but it's explained enough in HARVEST MOON that I could catch on decently.  Also, a section of the book takes place on Hawai'i which is awesome because it's Hawai'i and I loved learning a little bit about native Hawaiian culture.

Both Jason and Kilani were pretty cool characters in their own right. Jason has some serious anger and guilt issues and the self-destructive way he copes with them is pretty realistic and interesting considering he is a doctor. While shifter fight clubs are a pretty common go to in urban fantasy I liked seeing a main character using one to work out some serious issues. Kilani was pretty cool as she is Hawaiian which mean some fun ties into Hawaiian magic and culture. She's a tough competent character who I loved seeing grow into not only her psychic powers but also her Kahuna powers. In regards to secondary characters, I loved Kilani's Hawaiian grandma and wished we could have spent more time with her learning all about Kahuna powers. I kind of felt that Kilani's lessons on how to use her magic were a tad rushed and would have liked to see more of her learning how to use her powers.

Considering their personal issues, Jason and Kilani have some work to do throughout this book on the road of their romance and while there are some tender moments, a sex scene or two, there is a bit more mystery and suspense than romance. I loved HARVEST MOON and am definitely going to check out the previous books and the next installments!
