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?
This is the second time in as many days I am making this comment, but this was a great example of a book with a title that perfectly summed up all aspects of the story. This story itself had good bones and was about having good bones. It was all about building that structure needed before things could really be great. It built the base of what being a wolf meant to Dylan. It built the base for Dylan’s career going forward. It built the base of a friendship and then more between Dylan and Chris.
This was a slow and steady start to something more. There was heat, but it only added to the feel of development and growth. I connected to the characters and invested in their forward movement. I really enjoyed this story and felt it was well written and well executed.
Nick J. Russo did a great job with this narration. The voices were fitting and he really nailed the personalities. I enjoyed it.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
