Finished in one sitting! I can't tell you when was the last time that happened!! This book was SO GOOD I couldn't put it down!!

Blood & Bone is a spinoff of C.C. Wood's "Bitten Series". Spinoffs can go two ways. Spiraling down down down to wherever lost books go, or spin up up up like a propeller. Well Charlie Tango, ...CC Knocked this one out of the park!

Blood & Bone stars two amazing characters from the "Bitten Series". Ian Lachlan & Chloe MacArthur. You don't have to have read the "Bitten Series" to enjoy this (

I was immediately drawn into this book. The characters are GREAT (the wolfs are fantastic)! The chemestry between Chloe and Ian is awesome. This is a must read book. The mystery is solid, characters are well defined (thank god) and the setting is believable. Not to mention hot sex scenes!
Bring on book 2!!!

Her nonchalance and her indifference burned. It set off a chain reaction in my blood. I didn’t want to fight. I craved the chase. “I want you to run, Chloe.”
She frowned at me. “Run?” Her eyes flashed. “Why, so you can chase me?” Her tone was biting.
“Yes,” I hissed.

4 stars. This was a good book! I had not read anything by Ms. Wood before, but I won this book from a giveaway and it sounded really good. This was a wolf shifter book, and it ranked right up there with my favorite shifter books by Suzanne Wright.

This is Chloe and Ian Lachlan's book. Chloe lost her parents and left her pack because she was suspicious of their deaths, but the pack didn't want her investigating. She joined another pack and found a home there. When she arrived she met Ian, who had

This is the first book I've read by this author and several of these characters are featured in another series so there is an ongoing story. This reads fine as a stand alone but once in a while there are events or people that I didn't know.

Chloe found her mate in Lachlan, too bad he'd just lost his own mate a few weeks before. He is heartbroken, grieving and has lost the will to live. She bullied him to eat, nurses him back to health, and is there to support him. Too bad he's so caught up in hi

This was, simply put, very well written with all the necessary ingridients to make a fantastic adventure filled with action, demanding alphas, a little bit of a drama and angsty anticipation of waiting for the main characters to open up fully to one another and finally express to each other, what we, the readers, have known and waited for to happen from the very first pages...LOL, and to see it happen in a HEA.

Hallelujah...I say

I enjoyed the paranormal aspect of the story but the romance didn't capture me.I loved how tough and fierce Chloe was as a shewolf. She was strong and fought for what was right and didn't back down from anyone. Ian is trying to slowly move on after losing his former mate. He's attracted to Chloe but doesn't want to betray his dead mates memory. With the way this was set up I was expecting to have all these feels but it didn't happen. I couldn't feel the connection between the main couple. I know ...more
Don't you just love it when a book puts a big smile on your face? I do. And Blood & Bone did exactly that.
I was so invested in reading about Chloe and Lach, I didn't even have to pretend not to hear other people who tried to talk to me.
The story was full of funny quips, great action and interesting characters I would really like to know more about. But first things first... Right, Rhys? *happy sigh*
Chloe and Lachlan's story! Yay!

I am kicking myself that I did not realize this book already came out. In fact, three books in this series are out. The only good thing about missing the favor they were already released its that now I can read the books back to back.

I liked this story of Ian (Lachlan) and Chloe. I didn't love it, probably because Ian already had a mate he was in love with before Chloe. I think that is the only reason why I didn't find this one give stars. But the good news i

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.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

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 lifetimes but she knows that Lachlan isn't in mindset to entertain the idea of loving someone else.

This is the first book of a spin-off series of author C.C. Wood's "Bitten" series. You could read it as a standalone, but you'd understand it so much more if you read the Bitten series first. And honestly it's one of my favorite paranormal series, so you really should read it.

In the end of the Bitten series, Lachlan, alpha of the wolf pack lost his mate. When that happens, often the other mate will die too, from a lack of a will to live. But Lachlan has a friend Chloe, (the pack enforcer) who f

Blood & Bone is the first book in the spin-off series of C.C. Wood's Bitten series, while it can be read as a standalone, I think it might be much more enjoyable if you've read the Bitten books. Some of those characters make appearances in the story, and if you're like me you'll want to know them too. Trust me, these characters (especially the females) are characters you'll want to get to know. They're pretty awesome.

In the Bitten series, we are introduced to Chloe McArthur. She's a total badass she-w

I think I have read pretty much every book C.C. Wood has put out and this one definitely has to be my favorite! From the very start I was hit with a deep emotional impact that had me certain I would love every page till I got to the end and Lachlan and Chloe got the HEA they deserved.

I was excited to start the first installment in the Blood & Bone series, a spin off of the Bitten paranormal romance, which I loved! Ms. Wood's novels have become synonymous with hot chemistry, swoony alpha males and the sassy women who bring them to their knees. That is exactly what we got with Blood & Bone. Chloe and Lachlan were so fantastic together. Not only did I find this novel to be sexy but I loved the heartfelt emotion between them. His novel was a winner and I can't wait for t ...more

I was a very lucky girl who won an ARC of this book ! I could not put it down. It is a spin off from her "Bitten series" another of her paranormal series which I got hooked on. Not only does it have a kick-ass sexy heroine but a sexy alpha male who needs a little but kicking. While part of a series it is one you can pick up and read in one sitting. You get the complete story but also get to catch up on a few of her previous characters like yummy Finn with his gorgeous eyes. C.C. is not afraid to ...more

Without a word to him, Chloe leaves on a quest ( with the help of her grandmother) to find out who killed her parents and why.

Blood & Bone is the first book in the Blood & Bone series.

Both kept me on the edge of my seat trying to figure out what was going to happen next! Oh! The sex scenes were Hot with a capital H! I thought Chloe and Ian were awesome characters! They were both well developed characters, and I found them to be quiet en

Two years after her parents were killed, Chloe MacArthur decided it was time to find out the truth about their deaths. While she has had her suspicions about what happened she hasn't been able to prove anything. In order to get the proof she needs she will have to leave behind her new pack and Ian Lachlan, the man who has sworn to never have another mate.

Still struggling with the death of his mate, Lachlan is barely surviving within the pack. He knows he needs to let go of his grief

What I wouldnt give to be a shifter. Chloe is an enforcer and Lachlan just lost his mate. Being a stubborn woman, she is looking for the murderers of her parents. She knows Lach is her mate, but he is still grieving for his dead mate. They are hunting down the monsters and what can I say. Hotness overload

Loved! I was completely hooked on this story. Having read the Bitten series, of which this is a spin-off of, I remembered the heartache Lachlan suffered at losing his previous mate. So finding him in this new series was awesome.

I loved Chloe. She had a heart of gold. And so much love and patience for Lachlan. But I also loved how Lach came alive in this story, and with Chloe's patience. Their love story was beautiful and touching. My heart really ached for them at times. And the drama and despi

I love CC's Bitten series and this is a spin off. This is a great book for anyone who loves the vampire and werewolf genres. There’s some background from the Bitten series that’s referenced but you won’t feel like you’re missing anything if you haven’t read them. You should, because they’re awesome, but you don’t need to.

Chloe was a strong character. She’s recently realized that she’s done everything she can to bring Lachlan back from the brink following his ma

Chloe was just amazing! She's the kind of character that is badass and can take of herself but doesn't mind accepting help.
