Skinny, quiet hipster Dylan Warner was the kind of guy other men barely glanced at until an evening’s indiscretion with a handsome stranger turned him into a werewolf. Now, despite a slightly hairy handicap, he just wants to live an ordinary—if lonely—life as an architect. He tries to keep his wild impulses in check, but after one too many close calls, Dylan gives up his urban life and moves to the country, where he will be less likely to harm someone else. His new home is a dilapidated but promising house that comes with a former Christmas tree farm and a solitary neighbor: sexy, rustic Chris Nock.
Dylan hires Chris to help him renovate the farmhouse and quickly discovers his assumptions about his neighbor are inaccurate—and that he’d very much like Chris to become a permanent fixture in his life as well as his home. Between proving himself to his boss, coping with the seductive lure of his dangerous ex-lover, and his limited romantic experience, Dylan finds it hard enough to express himself—how can he bring up his monthly urge to howl at the moon?
It’s Dreamspinner’s fault. This book was on a $1 sale which I’m a bit of a sucker for. I bought it on a Friday. Started it on Sunday evening and finished it on Monday. And now I need more.
I just simply loved Good Bones. From Fielding’s uptight main character who may be trying too hard to appear normal and yet he’s sweet and kind and the kind of guy you want in your corner. Even if he is a werewolf. It is, in fact, his werewolf side which is the bane of his existence – yes, I did have to use that pun and I’m not even ashamed 🙂 I adored Chris, who’s a bit simple, and has a history that eats him up inside, but the two together? Totally sweet.
The ending was no big surprise, I expected it after the first time Andy saw Chris, but even with that, I loved the book. From Dyl’s making his own way, to his brother and sister-in-law’s meddling to the way Chris looks at the world.
So flippin’ good!
And I just looked it up and there are two more….Dreamspinner, I’m coming!
