After battling werewolves and evil aunties, Bryar Rose is ready to enjoy her new life. No more crazy aunties. Her curse is toast. And Bry’s new man, Knox, is literally a dream come true. Best of all, Bry will soon attend a regular high school. Forget those sketchy tutors! To get ready, Bry is dedicating the rest of her summer to some serious back-to-school shopping with her best friend, Elle. It’s a blast, except for one thing:

Mysterious strangers are following Bry across Manhattan.

All these stalkers have oddly familiar scents and an uncanny ability to slip into the shadows whenever Bry tries to confront them. Even worse, their presence is making Knox act crazy with a capital C.

But Bry’s having none of it. Enough of her life has already been ruined by secrets. With Elle’s help, Bry plans to confront these strangers, find out what they want, and send them packing. Trouble is, the truth about their identity won’t be so easy to manage, especially when Bry finds out how these stalkers could change her future with Knox…and not for the better.

***An interim novella between WOLVES AND ROSES and SHIFTERS AND GLYPHS***
This book wasn't entirely necessary, but I'm glad it's a thing. Moonlight and Midtown is a laid-back story that follows Wolves and Roses. We get a bit of a look at what happens after Wolves and Roses ends which mostly contains Bry trying to take control of her wolf and the hunt for a wardrobe that doesn't shred when she changes.

While people may feel like the book is unnecessary for the storyline, it does provide a very refreshing story to read. It was a relaxing, light read and it was needed, in my opinion. I've been reading a lot of extremely action-packed stories that I've needed a break like this. It was great to see the world a bit more and get a sense of what direction Ms. Bauer would be taking us in the upcoming book Shifters and Glyphs

I don't think this book is necessary to read, so if you're not into filler stories, then you should probably wait it out for the second novel comes out. Overall, I really had a great time reading it and I'm so looking forward to the Shifters and Glyphs release so that I can see where we're going with this! I want to see what happens and if they find the fountain.
