Blood & Bone by C.C. Wood

Chloe MacArthur has finally found her mate but he's the one wolf she can't have.

To save her heart from further pain, she leaves the pack that she's come to consider her family. Unfortunately, unfinished business leads her back to her childhood home and straight into a deadly game with shifters that will do anything to prevent her from learning the truth.

Ian Lachlan is in mourning. Nearly two years ago, he lost his mate but, thanks to Chloe, he's finally living again. When he wanted to give up and die, she saved him.

Now, Chloe is the one who needs help and Lachlan plans to return the favor. Intent on protecting her from her enemies, he follows Chloe and soon discovers that he wants far more from her than friendship. He wants everything she has to give.

But can either of them let go of the past long enough to reach for their future?

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
The grief of losing a mate is overwhelming and all consuming, not only to the surviving spouse but to their friends and family as well.

For Chloe, watching Lachlan fade away after losing his wife, it was devastating. Lachlan is her mate. A lucky few have two mates during their lifetime, but she knows that Lachlan isn't in the mindset to entertain the idea of loving someone else.

Knowing that leaving is the only way to move on with her life and to find answers regarding her parents’ deaths, she changes packs and goes home. Only to find that the pack she left is entirely different than the one she comes home too.

When Lachlan shows up unannounced, Chloe believes that he's only there because of her grandmother and not because he cares for her.

When the pieces of the puzzle start falling into place, Lachlan has to make a decision: hold on to the past or take a chance on the future.

I have to say that I really enjoyed this book. I liked that things weren't always easy, things didn't just line up perfectly for the couple, but they had to deal with heartache and loss and other emotions before they finally made it into each other's arms in the capacity they were meant to.

Once I got into this story, I couldn't put it down. I read it in one sitting because of all the little twists and turns and trying to figure out where things were going to end up.

I will say that I didn't even know that there was another series that this one spun off from until I sat down to write my review, but you bet I'll be picking it up. I really enjoyed the way there was a great plot along with characters that had depth and grew throughout the story, along with a little bit of sexiness too.

A native Texan, C.C. grew up either reading or playing the piano. Years later, she’s still not grown up and doing the same things. Since the voices in her head never shut up, C.C. decided to share their crazy stories and started writing books.

Now that she has a baby girl at home, C.C.’s non-writing time is usually spent cleaning up poopy diapers or feeding the poop machine. Sometimes she teaches piano, cooks, or spends time bugging her hubby and two beagles.
