As a werewolf, Kieran Woodsmith’s career options are limited. Luckily, he can howl in tune, and his voice earns him admission to the prestigious Juilliard School of Music. Desperate to prove to his family that his admission wasn’t a fluke, Kieran auditions for the Broadway Musical Review. But when he meets an upperclassman with no scent and strange violet eyes, Kieran is thrown off his game.

On the eve of his lunar cycle, Kieran’s friend drags him to a party at the purple-eyed senior’s house. Distracted by the mystery of Brett’s missing smell, Kieran forgets about the moon. When he wakes up in a cage in Brett’s basement, Kieran realizes he’s not the only one who is more than he appears.


Chords by Taylor Roxton is a sexy, well-written read that kept this reader’s attention from start to finish. Chords is one of those stories that I HATED to see come to an end and I truly hope the author will write more about this couple in the future.

One of the great things about this book is the unique story line. Kieran is a werewolf who has dreams of being a successful student at Julliard. He’s not your everyday werewolf with ripped abs and sleek muscle tone, no Kieran has a more slight build and has more nerdy tendencies.

Kieran is a very easy character to like. He’s an all-around good guy who is excited to be away from home for the first time. Despite his ambitious nature, Kieran also has a laid back side that I really liked.

Since the story is told strictly through Kieran’s eyes it is easy to understand why he becomes so enamored with the mysterious and very sexy senior, Brett. There is something about Brett that calls to his inner wolf, but for the life of him, Kieran can’t understand why. When Brett shows his sexy, real side…omg…the sizzling sexual chemistry and sheer heat these two characters shared nearly steamed up my computer screen. I loved these two together and as I mentioned before…HATED for the book to come to an end.

Chords has a well-thought out story line that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I know I was surprised by who Brett was and I loved the suspense and romance this story gave me. Don’t hesitate to read this one. It’s soooo good and a truly refreshing read for a well-loved genre.

Highly Recommended!
