How to Love Thine Enemy, Howl at the Moon #6 by Eli Easton

"What a unique and detailed universe." Angel read How to Love Thine Enemy.

From the blurb:

Can a forbidden love heal the rift between two enemy tribes?

Legend says that, centuries ago, the sled dogs and the Inuit were so deeply bonded that the dogs rose up on two legs and became men. The Qimmig and the People lived together happily until one of the Inuit betrayed the dog-men. The Qimmig fled, vowing never to return.

Taq figured that was just another story elders told around the campfire. But when he witnesses two guys survive a polar bear attack by shifting into dogs, he has to rethink everything. Could the Qimmig really exist? And could they have anything to do with the special, golden-eyed boy he’d played with as a child?

Cupun has missed his old friend, Taq. But it is forbidden for the Qimmig to have anything to do with one-skinned Inupiat. When a series of events brings Taq back into his life, the feelings of protectiveness and joy awakened in his dog’s heart tell him that Taq is his soul’s mate.

But neither the Qimmig nor the Inuit are prepared to accept this bond. Are the boys fated for tragedy? Or will their love find a way?

How to Love Thine Enemy is a star-crossed lovers/Romeo and Juliet trope set in Alaska. Friends-to-lovers, doggie shifters, and destined romance with a little wilderness adventure.

Angel's Review:

I want to start off by saying I haven't read any other books in the Howl At The Moon universe, this series is new to me. I know there are books already apart of this series but I haven't read any of them, I jumped in with this book. 

And I'm glad I did! Let me tell you, there is so much background detail! You learn all about the history of both clans, along with what happened to cause the divide between both people. I really like the uniqueness of this shifter story, especially cause the shifters weren't wolves, they were all different, no shifter alike. Which I appreciated! It's refreshing coming across books that are unique and aren't like any other. 

At times this book got a bit confusing, but that could've just been a me thing. I liked that this had a bit of friends to lovers mixed in. Along with the fact it wasn't instant love, it was definitely a slowish burn.

This book was well written, and so great to read! I'm looking forward to reading more!
