Bones: Book One
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?

An enjoyable tale about Dylan an architect who moves to the country in order to live more freely as a werewolf at full moon. He meets red-neck neighbour Chris who agrees to help him renovate his house.
I just loved the "Nerd turned werewolf" story line. It worked beautifully. I loved how Chris was so different from the first impression the reader and Dylan got from him. The romance developed in a way that felt natural to me - there was tension, there was a lot of showing, not telling, and I wi...
What is with the blechy cover? These guys are supposed to be in their mid 20’s but here they look more like sneering kids. Definitely not like the grown-up hipster and the rough around the edges handyman they are in the story. I think I’d prefer one of those stock shirtless guy covers to this thing....
Really enjoyed this. Nothing terribly new about the take on the were mythology, more based on the relationship. Definitely reading the 2nd book in the series.
