Summary(from Goodreads):

Would you fight to the death to prove you are worthy to stand beside the one you loved?
Eighteen-year-old Tessa Morganton’s life has flipped upside down. After learning Jace’s secret and discovering the man she’d thought all her life was her father isn’t, she must also cope with the reality of what she’s now become—a werewolf.
Tessa tries to maintain her normal life while her body changes more and more each night as the full moon grows closer, but when Shelby comes back to pay her a visit, Tessa soon realizes turning into a wolf may not be the only dilemma she will have to overcome.
As the Wolf Moon draws near, Tessa uncovers some things about Jace and Shelby’s relationship and exactly what Pack Law entails in the untraditional situation Jace has created for them all.

I said it before and I will say it again- I am really liking the idea and length of Duologies. I still love a good, long series but when there are just two books it sometimes make me feel like I am just reading one super long book. And I do love myself a super long book. I do think that I prefer to have both books available before I start reading the first one, bcause it is always better to read books back to back. 

I enjoyed Changed a little more than I liked Marked. This story picks up where Markd left off- a few weeks before the full moon. I was really interested to see what was going to happen and to see what these secrets that Jace had up his sleeve where. I mean, didn’t he already have enough secrets? 

Tessa is understandably nervous, but I think she does a pretty good job of handling stuff. I was kind of bummed that her super tight friendship with her friend Rachel suffered in this book. I hate it when friends drift apart. I liked Jace a lot more in this book. Because his “act” was all behind him, he got to be much more himself and I found myself forgiving him just like Tessa did. I thought what happened during the first moon was pretty darn funny. That was a twist that I was not expecting to see and one that I really enjoyed. 

I couldn’t believe when I found out what Jace’s big secret was. I was back to being mad at him! It just made him seem even more selfish and he didn’t even seem concerned! I thought that was the craziest thing of all. No one seemed overly concerned. If it were me or someone in my life, I would be flipping out by what Tessa had to subject herself to! 

Overall, everything works out and everyone gets their HEA. I liked it. I thought it was a cute story, but the ending did seem a little rushed. I think that this duology is perfect for people that like quick reads. If you want to be able to take a day or a few days and get to know some new character and see their story through from start to finish, then Marked and Changed are the books for you.

    I thought the first book sounded good but was hoping for more from this one. Nervous, but once I get a book in my head I have to see it through. Thanks for the review
