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.
Chris and Dylan are back. One would think that after Dylan had to kill the wolf who changed him into a werewolf because Andy was attacking Chris, that these two would catch a break? Nope. Not in the world where the supernatural exists.
As if dealing with the whole experience wasn’t scary enough, Dylan and Chris are now haunted. With Andy recently dead, they figure they’d better find out how to get him to go into the next life. Only that’s difficult when Dylan doesn’t even know his last name, let alone where he came from.
One long trip to the bottom of a very deep pond and they’ve got Andy’s driver’s license. So off they go to find his family. Only that doesn’t turn out well as Andy’s family is a bunch of anti-gays who don’t want anything to do with their ‘former’ family member. When that doesn’t work out, they go in search of Andy’s former pack, only to find a group of ruthless werewolves who prefer to attack rather than talk.
It’s awfully hard to put a ghost to rest when you can’t find what motivates them. Especially when the ghost may be more than they expect.
Oh, I loved this book. I mean I loved the first one, but I really loved this one. Chris and Dylan are figuring things out in their relationship, they’ve found there are ghosts as well as werewolves, and dang it if one of the rooms Dylan’s redoing has fingerprints that show up no matter how many times they paint over them.
All in a few days’ work for these two.
5 stars! And I’m reading book 3 too…
