Sequel to Good Bones
Werewolves don’t have a how-to manual—nor do men embarking on a new life together.
It’s been a few weeks since Dylan Warner wolfed out and killed Andy, the crazed werewolf who originally turned him and later tried to murder Chris Nock. Architect Dylan and handyman Chris are still refurbishing Dylan’s old house as they work out the structure of their relationship. They come from very different backgrounds, and neither has had a long-term lover before, so negotiating their connections would be challenge enough even if Dylan didn’t turn into a beast once a month.
To make matters worse, Dylan’s house is haunted, and events from both men’s pasts are catching up with them. Dylan has to cope with the aftermath of killing Andy, and Chris continues to suffer the effects of a difficult childhood.
In his quest to get rid of the ghost, Dylan rekindles old friendships and faces new dangers. At the same time, Chris’s father makes a sudden reappearance, stirring up old emotions. If Dylan and Chris want to build a lasting relationship, they’ll have to meet these challenges head-on.
Good Bones (#1) is definitely my favourite story, followed by Buried Bones (#2) in this highly entertaining paranormal series. Both books centre around Dylan and Chris and their developing romance. What makes these stories fabulous is that Dylan is a werewolf and the pair have to deal with issues arising from this in both of the books. There’s drama, suspense, humour, and some lovely hot scenes between the two guys.
I always enjoy Kim Fielding’s writing and the way she weaves intricate plots and produces well-developed characters. She excels in world-building and made the werewolf aspect and the ghost scenes in book 2 entirely plausible. I particularly liked the interaction between Dylan and Chris and the chemistry that sizzles between them.
#1 is narrated by Nick J Russo and #2 is narrated by John Solo. Normally I prefer the same narrator within a series, but both narrators did the stories and characters justice. Pacing is spot-on and interesting, and all the voices are clearly defined.
An enjoyable series overall and well worth reading/listening if you’re a fan of paranormal and contemporary romance.
