Derek Doyle has been a member of the Paranormal Investigations Team since the monsters revealed themselves to the world. Considering that he thinks a monster is needed to catch a monster, he's definitely in the right place. As a lone wolf not used to letting many people in, neither man nor beast was prepared for the effect consultant Dr. Ever Chace has on them.
Growing up human in a world of supernatural creatures, Dr. Ever Chace has always felt a need to be special, to stand out. When asked to consult on a case where teens are being brutalized, she relishes the chance to make a difference and help stop a monster. But working alongside a wolf who she's so drawn to could be the beginning of something Ever might never have envisioned.
Fate and Destiny have a funny way of creeping up on you when you least expect it. With a murderer on the loose, Ever and Derek will have to put their attraction to one another aside while the hunt continues.
Easier said than done… right?
Now, as far as the characters, this is where Skin and Bones really shines in my mind. Derek, a werewolf, was a great male romantic lead. He's tough, and even this self-confessed vampire fan thought he was extremely well developed, and it was hard not to like him. That, in my mind, was one of the strengths of Skin and Bones. Ever Chace, as the female romantic ead, was another character that I grew to like almost from the moment she is introduced. It's not just those two. I was really interested to learn more about Caitlyn and Donnie, the two vampires on the Paranormal Investigations Team. The other members, Melanie, Ricky and Sarge were all characters I grew to like as well.
This is another book where society at large knows of the existence of vampires and other supernatural creatures, and the way that was set up reminded me a bit of a police procedural, in that they are a team and work together on investigations involving the supernatural community. I liked the take on it in this book, and that combined with strong likable characters earned this book a 5/5 Platypire rating.
