Book Review: Bone Dry – Kim Fielding

Bone Dry[Book 3 of Bones Series]

This has got to be my favorite in the series and not because of its central characters but because of its story. I loved Dylan and Chris but Ery and Karl’s story just did it for me big time. We met Ery Phillips in the second book as Dylan’s former lover-turned friend in college and his affinity towards supernatural beings with a spiritualist for a grandmother.

Unable to find inspiration for his painting and getting fed up with his dayjob as a graphic designer, Ery grab the opportunity to look after Dyan and Chris’s farm as the two heads off to Europe [in Barcelona which is in Spain and Paris specifically – man’ the Barcelona thing never gets old. lol].

With a warning from his friends about the farm’s pond, Ery suddenly find himself in the presence of Karl – a beautiful, white haired naked man. Getting to know Karl and becoming his inspiration, Ery tried to fight his heart for the feelings he’s having for Karl and suppressing it in order to reach his lifelong dream. His priority however took a toll on his heart – something he needs to decide on before it’s too late.

This was the first time I’ve ever cried reading a book by Kim Fielding – and I cried twice! The story of Karl simply struck me speechless and nostalgic. I could just feel the longing, the melancholy of his existence before Ery. I also loved his sweet innocence that it’s almost painful whenever he’s upset or those bad dreams he was telling Ery about. Oh’ man – he’s just so loveable. I also liked the fact that Ery is so open to possibilities and the way he’s still very human after all of he’d witnessed.

I’ve to say though that this third book has gotten really over the top with its fantasy theme and all but I totally loved it. Kim Fielding can give me unicorn for the next installment (or a novella pretty please) and I won’t even blink if it’s as good as this book. Seriously people, you need to read this series!

Book Review: Buried Bones – Kim Fielding

Buried Bones[Book 2 of the Bones Series]

After killing the guy who turned him into a werewolf and tried to kill his boyfriend, Architect Dylan Warner and handyman Chris Nock knows that they still have a lot to work on with in their relationship what with Dylan’s once-a-month transformation from man to beast and Chris’s difficult childhood. Working on their issues, a ghost haunting in Dylan’s home forced both men to deal with their pasts. Dylan is trying to deal with the aftermath of killing Andy by learning new things about the guy and Chris got face to face with someone from his childhood he’d almost long forgotten. These events led to new discoveries about both men’s pasts that neither of them ever expected.

I am in love with this series and I loved both MCs here. I thought Chris’s character was just way adorable and I love the easy chemistry between him and Dylan. It was instalove for me when I read the first installment of the series and for some reason, I’ve gotten pretty busy doing [or reading] other stuff that I didn’t get back to this until now. It’s wonderful to finally revisit the story of this wonderful couple. I loved how the author made this second installment seamlessly compatible with the first book without missing its charm. Dylan character is still someone you’d root for and his love and patient for Chris was just oh-swoon-worthy. Sometimes, with these sort of books involving supernatural being – there’s always a preconceived idea that there’s going to be a lot of exaggeration and almost ridiculous story-line because it’s fantasy after all but the author made sure that in this book, it feels like living an existing world where the characters just feels like your next door neighbor. Do you get my drift? If not, I rather have you grab a copy of this five-star [from me and from a ton of people] rated series and read it for yourself 🙂

Book Review: Good Bones – Kim Fielding

Good BonesBlurb: 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 thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! I’m not really big into paranormal / supernatural / shapeshifting shit but this one’s quite a read. This is just my second book by Kim Fielding (after The Tin Box) and this totally changed my perception about the author. The book is thorough with the flow of the story. The characters of Dylan and Chris are both charming and relatable. I loved that the flashbacks of Dylan were summarized quickly and the chemistry between him and Chris is just over the top it’s so freaking good! I’m so looking forward to reading the second book of the series!
