story to get lost in and my family can confirm that I really did get lost in it, I really needed Do Not Disturb signs around me whilst reading it There are many well portrayed characters in the story, from Paige and Riley, to his family and step family and her Mum and boss I couldn t quite make my mind up about Riley, he s a total mix of strong beta male threatening to be alpha but love makes him intoof a howling, weak, wretch at times Most of the story is set in a small, remote village in the Colorado Rockies, with a tight knit community complete with its own set of rules and regulations Although Paige and Riley met when she was only ten years old he s been fixated on her being his mate ever since I liked the reveal about how he got her to return to visit and the role of the gods in their reunion There are plenty of anxious moments as the story develops, including a fight to the death To find out between whom and why, you ll just have to read it yourself A great addition to shifter romance writing, I suspect this author s work will just keep on improving Many thanks to IndieSage PR for providing me with an ecopy of this novel to read in exchange for my honest review I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.I struggled with my decision on how to rate this book After much reflection, I finally decided to give it a four star rating You may be wondering what could have led to this struggle The story was good, but there were aspects that had me rethinking my decision to read it There was a hint of the possibility of sexual deviation Thankfully, it was just a hint because that would have been I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.I struggled with my decision on how to rate this book After much reflection, I finally decided to give it a four star rating You may be wondering what could have led to this struggle The story was good, but there were aspects that had me rethinking my decision to read it There was a hint of the possibility of sexual deviation Thankfully, it was just a hint because that would have been too much for me to handle With that being said, my reasons for awarding a four star rating was due to the following 1 A Unique and interesting storyline The Howling Heart is not your typical werewolf romance It delved into a world where fantasy met reality and mythology I found the concept surrounding the origin of werewolves fascinating and refreshing They were not considered to be werewolves, but wolves that appear human They are larger than your typical werewolf and this was due to centuries of inbreeding 2 Pacing The story is well paced It flowed smoothly from start to finish There were a few scenes that had me on the edge of my seat There was never a dull moment in this book.3 Well portrayed characters Howling Heart tells the story of Paige Donovan and Riley Gray Paige works with a prestigious fashion magazine She is in a solid relationship or so she believed until she caught her boyfriend cheating When she thought things could not get any worse, she received news of her father s death In a bid to handle her grief, she returned to the cabin she had inherited from her father This cabin and the surrounding areas held a lot of memories for Paige One memory that stood out most in her mind was the day she made friends with a white wolf pup Little did she know that returning to the Black River area would change her life in ways she could never imagine.Paige is a complex character She grew up under unhappy circumstances, however, she did not allow it to define her as an adult.She is strong and vulnerable at the same time The fact that she is willing to give up the life of comfort that she is accustomed to for love demonstrates her brave and unselfish nature However, I must confess that there were times when I wanted to knock some sense into her It baffled me how someone who claims to be smart could behave foolishly at times.Riley s character was somewhat confusing He is sexy and strong willed It s his strong willed nature that led to him constantly butting heads with his father He is a charmer, a take charge person and protective of those he cared about However, he has a dark side Now, what confused me was his actions when thought he was going to lose Page He cried, begged and whined These are not traits one would expect to find in a male such a Riley.4 The Ending The ending was not what I was expecting It took me by surprise, but I believe it was a beautiful ending The author is new to me as such I had no idea what I was getting into Now, that I am at the end, I can honestly say that I enjoyed the way she made the story come alive There is not muchI can say for fear of giving away the story Nevertheless, I can say this much I am glad I read this book If you love shifter romance and want a refreshing take on the world of shifters, then I recommend that you get a copy The cabin in Black River, Colorado was supposed to be something fun for young Paige, but her parents constant fighting scared her so much, she decided running away had to be better That s when she found a cute little white puppy in the woods, and a few minutes of happiness and joy until she was surrounded by a pack of snarling wolves, protecting their little packmate Her family never went back to that cabin, so when Paige s father dies and leaves it to her years later, she returns to Black Ri The cabin in Black River, Colorado was supposed to be something fun for young Paige, but her parents constant fighting scared her so much, she decided running away had to be better That s when she found a cute little white puppy in the woods, and a few minutes of happiness and joy until she was surrounded by a pack of snarling wolves, protecting their little packmate Her family never went back to that cabin, so when Paige s father dies and leaves it to her years later, she returns to Black River to re visit the memories and deal with what to do with the cabin, taking a leave from her coveted high fashion magazine job in the New York Alone in the cabin, Paige receives a visit from a large white wolf, but the sheriff doesn t seem to be as concerned as he should be Deciding that it s better to keep the cabin in her past, she leaves town and is in an accident and is rescued by an Adonis of a blonde guy who is determined to keep her around, but again, she finds that her space is invaded by something that sheds white hairs Again, no one seems concerned What is going on in this remote little town Why is this hot guy so determined to keep her around And why is he completely naked so often And finally, what do Norse Gods have to do with wolves What are Varulv The Howling Heart by April Bostic is part mystery, part romance, all paranormal and shows a lot of naked bits, by a lot of naked shifters I like a good paranormal romance, love the tension, the danger, the confusion by the human until the light finally goes on and acceptance andare achieved I just couldn t fully believe or connect with the two main characters as much as I wanted I did find supporting characters that I wanted to knowabout, and completely enjoyed, though Paige was an educated adult working in the high end fashion industry in New York, yet her character seemed too timid and too embarrassingly fascinated by all of the casual nudity, while her feminine feathers were completely ruffled by the thought of being subservient to a male for anything Riley, our hotter than blazes shifter was the Alpha s son and had decided as a pup that Paige was to be his mate He never forgot her and went way overboard when she returned to Black River As a character, he was not consistent and seemed rather na ve to the human world, and dare I say, often suffered from dumb blonde syndrome a little too much for my liking To his credit, he did show some hot moves on the battlefield and in the bedroom, but I still couldn t see him with Paige and there were times I questioned his actions.This is fantasy, we can be taken from pure and innocent to melting hot erotica in a matter of a few pages and that is where April Bostic took us, so I can t say I wouldn t let Riley shed on my bed I wish to thank April Bostic for providing me a review copy of The Howling Heart in
