    'Once in a Blue Moon' is a very sweet story with a slightly different take on shifter lore. These shifters, panthers, are destined to only find their mate on the night of a blue moon. Once they reach a certain age, their desire to search for their mate begins to wane. It's nature's way of ensuring that young males find their mates and breed many cubs, while older males who haven't found their mates are left alone. Kind of sad if you think about it.Tonight is Devon's last chance to find his mate. This is his final blue moon where his instincts are urging him on. Luckily for him, he finally scents his mate, Nik. Nik, however, isn't so very happy. He doesn't want a mate. Not. At. All. He's seen, firsthand, what a mating can do. It makes you dependent upon another for your happiness and well-being. And, it kills, when the mating is torn asunder. Period. End of story. Nik has spent the majority of his adult life moving from big city to big city just to make sure his destined mate will never be able to find him.This was a very sweet, but way too short, story about fated mates. I enjoyed it, but would've loved to see what happened after. However, since the whole story focuses on the night of the blue moon, I suppose I can understand why the author left it the way she did. Fun, sweet, and sexy.

    Nicholas has been moving and hiding his nature in big cities but each year the drive to go out and find his mate gets stronger. That’s just the thing, he doesn't want a mate. He has seen firsthand how having a mate can destroy someone. So he lives a single solitary existence. He doesn't trust his strength around the fragile humans so he hasn't been out on a date for ages. Tonight is the night of the blue moon and Nicholas locks himself up in his apartment and tries to drink himself into relaxation.Devon is the head of his family and time is running out. If he doesn't find his mate this blue moon he will lose his compulsion to look. It's just part of the cat’s nature. But tonight, he is feeling lucky.I really liked the background that Kimberly was able to give in such a short period of time. It made this world full and real. The history behind Nicholas sad and devastating was touching. I do think that he overcame his concerns too quickly. I would have loved to see this in a longer form.

    Date Started: 10th July 2012Date Finished 10th July 2012Page Length: 35 PDFNik sounded needy and Devon sounded too corny. That was my only problem with his short story. It was beautifully described if in some places too much. There were a lot of insecurities in here, which was confusing how so many could fit into such a small writing space. A short glimpse into a very interesting world. I would love to read the other couples story who were in here.

    Too short of a story to really tell much, but the shifters in this story had to find their by a certain age or else they were destined to be alone. I'm glad that Devon and Nickolas found each other. The sex was really hot and I wish it had been a longer story.

    A short and very sweet story about finding the one person who holds the missing piece of your soul. Devon and Nikolas were perfect for each other. Very sweet tale!

    There were many shortcomings with this short story. One glaringly obvious thing was the poor editing. We had "your" for "you're", "their" for "there", and "conscience" for "conscious". There were cases of missing words and several sentences that were so long and convoluted that I had to read them twice. Aside from the editing we had two instances of the story being slowed by long passages not related to the central romance. This bogged the story down, especially for such a short piece. The long session of Devon explaining all about the nature and culture of their type of shifter in a big info-dump (explained by the fact that Nik's shifter father refused to tell Nik anything about his shifter heritage) is an fumbling attempt at worldbuilding. That would have been fine if handled more subtly or if this was a longer work. It was like the author had dreamed up this whole backstory and wanted to dump every bit of it into the story in some way. The other place the story stalled was the completely out of place discussion of child rearing and discipline. It related to nothing else in the story. I can see if we had an actual novel and were developing characters for later. In fact the presence of Ryan and Kane were completely unnecessary as well. Once we finally got to the mating it was very spicy and emotional and I could see the story finally being fulfilled. Then one last thing got to me. As Devon is falling asleep he realizing that he is forming the mating mark on his pelvis (?) and says that Nik will have one too when he wakes up in the morning. Then the story ends. What mark? What does it look like? Where is it? This is something new and cool to have a non-bite mating mark and we are left hanging about it. It made the story finish up just as frustrating as it began for me. Not Hunter's usual quality at all!

    You know how sometimes you just read a book and it clicks with you? You're in the mood for something and for some reason, maybe lots of little ones, it just tickles your fancy?Well, that happened for me with Once in a Blue Moon. It just ticked some boxes I needed ticking and it just pushed some of the buttons I had exposed at the time.I needed something short, and it's short, something sweet, and it's sweet, something sexy, and it's sexy, something with nice MC's, and they were. I liked Nikolas and Devon. It is a short read so there wasn't tons of shifter info - but I didn't want that. It was just right for me and my mood. Devon was a take charge guy, Nikolas needed someone to take charge and help him understand his cat nature; what it was to really be a shifter, and a mate as well. Neither of them wanted to be alone anymore - one was scared, one had just about given up - then they found each other. I just kept going "aww." I also felt the heat between them so it was an interesting combination of "aww" and "mmm, mmm" going on in tandem :)Once in A Blue Moon is a really nice little ebook that I recommend for something sweet and sexy.Review also posted here

    I enjoyed this story. Though short it was a very tempting glimpse into a interesting world I would love to know more about. The story was well written and I found the dialogue and interactions particularly well done. My biggest criticism would be that the issues the characters had to deal with on a personal level were resolved far to quickly...then again, perhaps the characters only think they've found their ultimate HEA. I get the feeling there's a lot more for these two to work through together yet...I'd love to see what happens next and what the shifter world has in store for them :)

    A nice little shifter sorry about finding your mate... I'd have liked it better if it had been properly edited - multiple spelling and grammatical errors.

    Not really crazy about itIt just didn't do anything for me. The story was boring...leaving no emotional bond for me. I only liked that they mated.
