Summary: (from Goodreads)
the cold.
Grace has spent years watching the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf—her wolf—watches back. He feels deeply familiar to her, but she doesn't know why.

the heat.
Sam has lived two lives. As a wolf, he keeps the silent company of the girl he loves. And then, for a short time each year, he is human, never daring to talk to Grace...until now.
the shiver.
For Grace and Sam, love has always been kept at a distance. But once it's spoken, it cannot be denied. Sam must fight to stay human—and Grace must fight to keep him—even if it means taking on the scars of the past, the fragility of the present, and the impossibility of the future.

The Story:
Grace was attacked by a pack of wolves when she was a little girl. But was saved by one of them. While she is growing up she feels a special bond to one of the wolves. Who often watches here and keeps an eye on her.
One day she meets this wonderful boy, but feels like they have known eachother forever. And they fall in love. Though there are many questions and mysteries who are left unsolved. Will they figure it out and find the solution?

My Opinion:
This is the cutest love story I have read in ages. Or maybe ever :)
There is not really any action and so on, as there normally is in paranormal books.
But it doesn´t have too. This is the cutest most adorable love story anyway :D
So I decided to give it a 5 out of 6 stars.
Since I more then once was sitting and awwwing of the story. Because it was just adorable. They are so cute together :) And Sam has a charm who could melt any girls heart :P
So If your looking for a cozy read :) This is it :)

I so have to read the second book :) To find out how everything will go with the cute couple and the whole wolfie thing :)

  2. Yay! We have the exact same taste in books. O.O Its like amazing! hahaha. :D I'm so glad you liked this book. You're right it was such a cozy read. Made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. :D I don't have Linger yet so i can't read it. -.- Hope you find it as cozy as this one! <3

  3. I'm currently reading the second book Linger! This series just gets better and better!(:
    If your looking for another great romance novel, where two people can't people together because they are opposites, your should try Perfect Chemistry or any other books from Simone Elkeles!
    She does a really great job with that! Well anyways I hope you enjoy the rest of the series and happy reading!
