My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow! This book was a pleasant, enjoyable surprise! Hunting Human by Amanda E. Alvarez is a story about learning to heal past emotional injuries, learning to love, and rising above the past. Beth Williams and her best friend, Rachel, were kidnapped by demented werewolves who took sport in hunting humans while the two friends were backpacking through Europe. During their sojourn, Rachel was killed by the lunatics who tormented them and Beth became the nightmare that chased them.

Two years later, Beth finds herself in Portland, Oregon where she has made a new life fore herself despite her difficult circumstances. She finds a job working in a small restaurant and begins to date Braden Edwards. He is charming and sexy (naturally). He is also a werewolf.

As soon as Beth trusts her life to be safe, she realizes her nightmare, Markko Bolvek, has followed her to Portland. Unbeknownst to her, the Bolveks and the Edwards have been archenemies for ages. The situation creates a chasm between Beth and Braden for reasons you will have to find out for yourself when you read this riveting story. There are secrets that each will have to learn about the other, especially when it comes to Braden realizing the magnitude of Beth’s dire situation.

The villainous characters are truly irredeemable and the secondary characters are completely lovable. This story met and exceeded my expectations. The relationship between the hero and heroine was completely believable and so sweet. The reader can completely immerse themselves into this story and get lost in it -- only coming up for air when the novel ends. The author has definitely created a winner with her story of love, a plot full of nail biting situations, and the connection she creates with her characters. Alvarez completely grasps what a reader wants in an unforgettable book.

Happy Reading from Bona Fide Reflections!

I really enjoyed this book as well. I hope Alvarez writes another story featuring another member of Braden's family!
