Autumn - Sierra Dean

Cooper Reynolds's life is going to the dogs... literally. 

As if being a high school senior in a small Texas town wasn't hard enough, Cooper has bigger things to worry about than who he'll take to prom and whether or not the Poisonfoot Padres will win homecoming. He has less than a year before his eighteenth birthday, when a curse placed on his family will doom him to live in coyote form forever. 

The last thing he needs to complicate his already messed-up life is a girl, but fate has other plans in mind for him when it brings Eloise "Lou" Whittaker to Poisonfoot. She's grouchy, sarcastic and has no love for her new Texas home, but she might be exactly the right person to help Cooper break the curse. 

The clock is ticking, and Cooper will have to decide if he's willing to let Lou in on his dirty little secret before it's too late.

My thoughts:
I knew there were secrets but then more secrets showed up at the end. Secrets and secrets.

Lou comes to a little town, she does not want to live there but has no choice. And yes she meets a guy, a very mysterious guy who everyone tells her to stay away from.

Cooper is the guy everyone avoids. But that was no secret there for me, the city may not know, but it was already told  to us that every male in his family turn coyote at 18...and stays that way. So poor guy has something to look forward to soon.

But more is going on than that. Like why do they all become coyotes? Why do his mum and her grandmother tell them to not see each other. Why are there other strange things going on?

But I must say, sometimes it kind of reminded me of Beautiful creatures..I have not read the book, but I did see the movie and yeah..similarities. 

And it had an evil ending too, oh of all the cliffies. Must read book 2 soon. Like now!

Conclusion:
Love, magic and hostile feelings.

  4. When I see coyotes I instantly think of Mercy Thompson by Patricia Briggs. I hope the next book has answers to your questions.

  5. Oooh., I'm going to have to check into this one. I didn't read Beautiful Creatures either but did see the movie and really liked it. Now I just need to get on with the series. So if this one is kind of similar I'll like it.

  7. I'm not a fan of cliffhangers and tend to avoid them, so I think I'll wait to see how this series plays out before picking it up. Interesting review, though! :)

  8. I liked the Beautiful Creatures series and if this is a bit similar then I would like it except for the cliffie. She is the author of the Secret Mcqueen series right?

  12. They can't turn back? Like a werewolf? So they had to reproduce at a young age? SOOOO many questions.

    1. Do you want to reproduce when you know your sons will turn coyote at 18 and never have a real life? The females have gotten babies and hoped the curse was over

  13. Could work. Something werewolf like without being a werewolf book.
