My Thoughts: I'll start off by saying I've heard this book compared to Twilight multiple times. Some people hate it, some people love it. I am a huge Twilight fan. Yes, I'm one of "those."
Well, what can I possibly say to sum up this book? I'm in love with it. Like seriously all the way in love with it. I finished it in a day. Once I started it, I could not stop. Eating became a chore because I just needed to have the book in my hand or else I would go insane. I'm still left breathless. The whole story, the words, the plot, the characters are beautiful. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Its just too bad I had the ARC, because now I have to buy the finished copy! Its definitely one I need to have sitting on my bookshelf. It must be bought! haha! I loved Grace, but most of all I loved Sam. I loved him as a wolf, I loved him as a human. I loved the way the chapters unfolded. Each chapter is told from each characters point of view, one will be Grace's and the next Sam's. But it does not jump around and it goes along as the story goes. We learn how they felt each other through each other. I usually do not like books that switch points of view, but this just made it more special. I really wanted to know what Sam was thinking and how he "felt." Amazing! It is a good thing its called Shiver, because it will literally make you Shiver. The whole book, I wanted to go out and play in those woods!! Now I am left wanting to read Linger, which isn't due out for a while. Darn me. LOL! I won't go into too many other details because you need to just read this book!!! I don't give too many books this kind of review, because most books I read once than I move onto something else. Its just my way. But this one,,,, lets just put it this way, if you haven't read it yet, go to amazon and buy it right now! If you like beautiful romance stories, this is for you!
Overall: GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT GREAT, Do you get my point yet?

I didn't really like this book at all. I thought that the initial premise held promise - trying to re-write _Twilight_ with werewolves... but the changes made to the traditional werewolf myth fell flat. There was a scene with dogs that was utterly stupid - and it was obvious that this book was not researched enough. And the ending was just completely lame. There are MUCH better werewolf stories out there.

I found this to be too reminiscent of [book:The Time Traveler's Wife|14050] which I greatly disliked. Sam is a werewolf who is fascinated with Grace, who is not. Grace is obsessed with the yellow-eyes wolf she only sees during the winter months. When Sam gets shot and ends up on her deck as a human, she realizes the truth and the real story begins.
The book is told in little snippets of time, Sam's perspective, then Grace's, then Sam's, etc. A very different take on the whole werewolf and the moon scenario. I was interested enough in their dilemma to finish reading but I hope the next book is written a little differently.
