Review of the Howling Heart by April Bostic

I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. 

In this book we meet Riley and Paige. When Paige was 10 years old she went to Black River, Colorado to a vacation home. While there her parents are again fighting none stop, and she hears her mother and father each blaming each other regarding her. So she does what some kids would do she runs away from home (per se). While out in the woods behind the house she runs into a puppy that she befriends that night. For the next couple of nights she receives a dead animal on her bed and when her mother sees this she demands that they leave immediately. When the puppy sees her leaving he howls till she can't hear him anymore. Years later Paige's father dies and when he does she finds out that she has inherited the cabin that both her and her mother thought he has sold. Upon coming to the cabin she sees a white wolf and freaks out. 

Riley has waited for years for Paige to return to Black River. Now that he has her here he can't let her go. When he has to show himself to her he is afraid that this will be the moment he looses her. He knows Paige is his mate and if he could have done it he would have claimed her when they were 10 years old. So no matter what he will fight with his very life to keep her. Now he just has to find a way to get her to not only give him a chance but to stay but to accept all of him. 

In this book we find that love really can move mountains. This book has an amazing love story but my problem with it is it seems like the author takes to long to make her points. There are some characters that are very aggressive in the beginning of the book that are trying to tell our main character what to do that you don't hear from again until practically the end. I thought over all this book is amazing as a love story between these two but there are so many side characters that you almost loose that story. I am a big fan of paranormal books and this one is good but it almost feels like it should have been more than one or some of the characters should have had their own book. I would cautiously recommend this book.
