The Howling HeartThe Howling Heart by April Bostic
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

On the surface, I enjoyed the book. It was entertaining and the characters were well fleshed out. As you dwell into the details of the plot, you tend to see some loose ends which could have been better explained. Paige's job, boyfriend and life in general were just too good to be true and to me, it was as if something WAS lurking in the background but it wasn't highlighted because it was too much effort.

Paige let me down more than once with her 'it's all about me' attitude while Riley was the hero of the day. Development could have been better, the premise was action filled and the plot made sense. Additionally, the one thing everyone at the book club agreed on, NO cliffhanger ending. I kid you not. We actually looked twice at title and ending, it actually ended properly. For that reason alone, this book is worth your time.

Would I recommend this read? You really, really have to like this genre to enjoy this book.

Overall assessment:
Content: 3.5/5
Editing: 3.5/5
Formatting: 3/5 (first copy we received was not formatted)
Pacing: 3.5/5
Offensive content?: 18+ some scenes were borderline 'monster sex' i.e. implied but not described.

Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours. I did not receive any payment in exchange for this review nor was I obliged to write a positive one.
