Blurb: 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.
I just read Good Bones a few days ago, and I just had to continue Dylan and Chris’s story in Buried Bones…
Buried Bones starts off a few weeks after Good Bones, Dylan and Chris are still working on Dylan’s house together…and still working on their relationship. Both men still have so many silly insecurities but they are adorable and smexy together, so I forgive them. During one of their smexy times, on the kitchen floor :), Dylan thinks he sees a ghost in his house, kicking off the haunting. While Dylan and Chris try to get rid of the ghost, it leads them to people from their past: Dylan’s old friend and Chris’s father. It even stirs up some trouble with another werewolf pack!
I liked this story, but not quite as much as I liked the first one.
I’m not a huge fan of stories with established lovers, but I really like Chris and Dylan and there isn’t much angst between them at all; mostly sweetness.
I thought it was interesting that we get alternating POVs this time between Chris and Dylan. I was really excited at first to finally get inside Chris’s head, but I still preferred Dylan’s POV.
At first I thought the plot was all over the place: from the ghost to finding out more about Andy to encountering old friends and family. But in the end, everything came back and tied in together, although I thought it was obvious who the ghost was.
It got a little crazy near the end! And while I did learn more about the werewolf world, I was a little disappointed that I still have A LOT of questions.
I loved the HEA! The last chapter was soooooo sweet and it looks like Chris and Dylan’s story is probably complete, although I would totally read another book if they were in it. But what I really want…is Ery’s story!
Definitely recommended if you need closure after reading Good Bones.
Overall Impression: I Liked It
