The Bone Series, Book 2
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.
This is a sequel in that it literally picks up right where book 1 left off, not a standalone. Our couple is still working through a bunch of “issues” and yet there is a new external struggle for them to overcome as well.
Luckily, our couple does not ever come to question their relationship, but instead grow closer and more deeply in love.
Kim Fielding is an amazing writer and she has given us a great couple with a lot of chemistry and some really fascinating “life with a werewolf” issues to maneuver. She does a great job with world-building and the additional struggle is actually pretty exciting as well.
This is definitely the case where both books 1 and 2 are wonderful – no curse of the sequel here!

Nick J Russo narrated book 1 and I was disappointed to see he didn’t do this one as well. However, John Solo surprised me with how well he handled this and I absolutely loved his version of Dylan – so growly and yummy!
In general I think the same narrator is best, but Solo did a good enough job that I can still highly recommend this as an audiobook.
