Part 1: The Plot of The Summer Moon
In The Summer Moon, Malia was first introduced like she was a human living with her mom. Her parents had separated but it seems that they have good arrangements for her.
Despite her mom’s reluctance, she still ended up spending her summer with her dad in Florida not knowing she’ll discover more of her werewolf roots there, and most of all, she’ll meet the man that would twist her life upside down.
Malia of The Summer Moon was always the passive, nice girl type and she couldn’t believe she hooked up with a stranger in the airport restroom as soon as her plane landed in Florida.
Her emotions and her body’s reaction, whenever she was near that stranger, were all new to her until she found out one day that the man she hooked up with was connected to her dad, and that he was an alpha of a werewolf pack.
Ty of The Summer Moon felt the same attraction too, however, he isn’t sure if Malia is a human or a werewolf yet beyond all the hook-up and sensual tension between him and Malia, he hopes that she’s his mate and that what happened to them is not just a one night stand but he hopes to have forever with her.
Part 2: Main Character Of The Summer Moon
Here in The Summer Moon, we have been given a female lead that is described as gorgeous with an almost too-good-to-be-true type of personality. Malia is charming. She’s neither weak nor strong. She’s not the damsel of distress type. The way her character is built is just enough for the vibe The Summer Moon has.
Ty of The Summer Moon is the kind of guy every girl would have a crush on. He’s the typically responsible alpha. He’s flirty, and no doubt attractive.
In the first chapters of The Summer Moon, you’ll have an impression of his character as the playboy type who would hook up without hesitation, but later on, you’ll be surprised he’s the opposite as when he showed his sincerity towards Malia.
