Get this book. Don’t even bother reading my review, just drop everything and get yourself a copy. You won’t regret it.
Here’s the synopsis you’ll find on the first page:
Live fast, die young, and leave a bloodthirsty corpse.
That’s the saying of a new pack of predators infesting a New England town. They’re infected with the Ghost Heart, a condition that causes them to become irresistible and invincible…as long as they drink the blood of the living.

When a young mechanic is seduced by the pack’s muse, he finds falling in love will break more than his heart.
