Genre: Paranormal/ Romance/ Young Adult Fiction

I absolutely loved Shiver and read it within a day.

The book is told from a first person account, each chapter alternating from Sam or Grace’s point of view. Sam is a werewolf and once saved Grace from an attack from a pack of wolves that he is attached to. Since the incident both Grace and Sam have had a special relationship. Sam visits Grace in his wolf form every year from the edge of the forest and Grace waits for her yellow-eyed wolf to come and visit every winter. An unfortunate incident in the woods allowed Sam to approach Grace in his human form and thus their romance begins.

I have to say that there were some parts of the book which I didn’t like but I’m a sucker for YA Romance so this is a biased review and I’m willing to overlook the flaws. In the beginning I found Grace’s obsession with the yellow-eyed wolf to be a bit weird. Plus the first few chapters of the book felt a bit long winded but once Sam reveals his human-self to Grace, the romance begins and so does the drama and the action. 

This is a great book; filled with action, mystery and undying teenage romance. Basically, if you’re a Twilight fan, I suspect you’ll love this book too though Grace is the complete opposite of Bella- thank God!

I quite enjoyed reading Shiver and I can’t wait to read Linger, the second book for the series. Read it!
