Good Bones by Kim Fielding

I received a copy of Good Bones by Kim Fielding from Dreamspinner Press through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.  I'm so glad that I found this galley.  It was a wonderful lazy day read!  Here's the Goodreads blurb:

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?
I really enjoyed this book.  It was such a great read.  There is paranormal in the book but the focus isn't on the paranormal.  The focus is on Dylan and the life he's been living versus the life he could be living.  Dylan and Chris don't have this storybook perfect relationship but it is realistic and honest.  You can't help but cheer for them as the story unfolds.  It was also refreshing to see two people who were so different come together.  I can't really find anything negative to say about this one.  It was romantic but not sappy and just an all around great read.  I enjoyed every minute of it.
