the cold.
Grace has spent years watching the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf—her wolf—watches back. He feels deeply familiar to her, but she doesn't know why.

the heat.
Sam has lived two lives. As a wolf, he keeps the silent company of the girl he loves. And then, for a short time each year, he is human, never daring to talk to Grace...until now.

the shiver.
For Grace and Sam, love has always been kept at a distance. But once it's spoken, it cannot be denied. Sam must fight to stay human—and Grace must fight to keep him—even if it means taking on the scars of the past, the fragility of the present, and the impossibility of the future


Maggie made a new image of wolf. A werewolf in fact.

This isn't like any other werewolf story you read in the streets or in the balcony or whatever you are reading or where you read it.
The way they change has something to do with the temperature. Unlike from the other stories that they can change whenever they want to. Sadly
thats not what happened in this story. And that's why i think its somewhat unique. "somewhat" because....I'm not fully satisfied? in fact I think I shouldn't be writing this review until im done reading the whole series.

Sam has been watching Grace for over six years. They first met when Grace was eleven and he is twelve and she was attacked by the wolves when she was a child. Sam saved her. As he took a human form in order to carry her back home. Though at first she could not remember

who and how she was saved. But soon after that. Grace has been obsessed with wolves. Seeing Sam in a far. Convincing herself that he is guarding her and even call him "My wolf".

I Honestly don't know where to start and how to start my review about this book. I couldn't say anymore than this book is not in my hate list nor in my love list. It's not that attractive nor boring to read. Most of the story is about the two individual loving each other in the a huge distance. That one is pure human and the other is a werewolf.

Sam is kind, patient and Gentle. He was turn to werewolf in a forcefully way. Trying hard to stay human just so he could talk and know Grace more.

As for Grace. After being bitten by the whole pack of wolf she remained human.

In someway its quite odd. I mean she's suppose to turn in to a werewolf just like Sam. And
Sam there was guarding her and waiting for her to change skin and might as well help her find the whole pack for like..forever. Isn't he sweet?

The story was written in a vivid way that every reader would easily understand and catch up.
Unlike some other novel that you'll only get to know the main characters thought. This one is not. You'll get to know what Sam or Grace thinks for each other. Knowing each views. And by that you'll grow to love them too.

The Story is more focused on Sam and Grace growing love for each other. And fighting the temperature that might turn Sam back to a wolf. Which they couldn't risk. Because losing Sam now. Means Losing him forever.

I've heard this was a good book and it's on my TBR list. I immediately thought of "Twilight" as I was reading this review and since I loved those books, I'll be reading this one too!
