Capture Me In Moonlight (Doomsday Brethren, 2) by Shayla Black ~ Book Review with Excerpt


I crave her like no other…but touching her could destroy us both.

For thousands of years, the Wolvsey wizards have been cursed never to know their fated mate.

Then I see her. A beauty with a bruised heart. A human who’s not supposed to know about our world. She’s off-limits, yet I'm obsessed. I shouldn’t want to share everything with her. Given my manwhore reputation, she’ll never trust me.

And if I give in, she’ll die.



For two years, I’ve ached for the enigmatic stranger who watches me possessively every night, then leaves with another woman. He’s not mine, and after my ex, I swore I’d never fall again.

And if I give in, he’ll break my heart.

There’s no place for us—in his world or mine. Yet our spark burns too hot to resist. And when a terrifying dark wizard threatens everything, we must band together…or we won’t survive.


“I want to kiss you," I murmur. "Let me.”
“Just this once,” Kari consents.
My hands bloody shake as I palm her nape and tilt her face to mine. Right or wrong, smart or not, I’m not leaving until I show Kari exactly how good I can be to her. For her.
I lean in. Her eyes flutter closed. The revving of my heart roars in my ears as I lower my lips to hers. It takes every ounce of my restraint not to devour her whole.
As our lips touch, hers part. She melts into me with a gasp.
That’s all the invitation I need.
When I plunge inside her mouth hungrily, she opens wider. Groaning, I sink into her and drown.
She’s a shock of sensation to my system. Delicious. Intoxicating. Addicting.
I have no other words to describe her rich flavor, her silky texture, her pure headiness. She goes straight to my c0ck. One touch, and I’m not merely hard, but steely and desperate like I’ve never been.
She writhes and wraps her arms around my neck, lurching to her tiptoes and straining to get closer.
This time when I kiss her, I taste her surrender.
Her flavor enthralls me. It’s complex yet sweet—a blend of femininity, need, and something intrinsically her that calls to the wizard in me.
I’m lost. Unhinged. Need rushes through me. Having her on my tongue feels perfect—just like she is. No woman has ever mesmerized me like this. I’m convinced I’ve been put on this earth to kiss her.
What the fvck is happening?
Unable to stop myself, I grip her neck tighter and capture her mouth again, Kari’s breath catches. The sparks in my blood turn to fire.
I groan wildly as I inhale her. For two long years, I’ve wondered what she tastes like. I’ve fixated about it. Now I know, and she will haunt me. When I’m not kissing her, I’ll crave her lush mouth. I’ll pant and ache until I can taste her again.
Desperate, I change the angle of the kiss, driving deeper into the heart of her mouth. She inhales raggedly and clings to me. I bloody can’t get enough. I back her against the bar and notch my burning c0ck between her legs. Even through our jeans, I can feel that she’s wet. I smell her ar0usal.
It’s turning me ravenous.
Kari cries out a wordless plea. My heart thrashes against my chest. I’ve never ached like this for a woman. Because, until Kari, no woman ever felt like mine.
Before I stormed into her pub, I told myself a taste of her would cure my fever. But I was fooling myself. My desire has morphed from a flame to a roaring blow-torch of need. Self-control and common sense burn to ash. No matter how much I kiss her, will it ever be enough?

I have to say the interspecies fated mate trope is one that I'm becoming a fan of. In this story we have Kari who is human and Ronan who is a wizard, when Ronan first lays eyes on Kari he knows there's something different about her.

This story is about the push and pull of their attraction to one another, do they or don't they get together. Believe me it's not as easy as you may think because Ronan's family has been cursed for about a thousand years to never know their fated mate. It also has some of the Doomsday Brethren popping in and out of Kari's bar so we get to see some of that unveiling. There isn't to much, so this story in a sense can be read as a standalone but I would recommend reading it in the order of release that way you have a better understanding of the Story ARC that is happening.

Shayla Black is taking readers on a wonderful paranormal journey where we can lose ourselves amongst the magical men and women who find love while battling for the freedom of mankind.

I would recommend this book to readers that enjoy STEAMY Paranormal Romances, Fated Mates, Age Gap, He Falls First, or Protector Romances.

Happy Reading!!!
