Cutie and the Beast (Fae Out of Water #1) by E.J. Russell Review

    Cutie and the Beast (Fae Out of Water Book 1) by E.J. Russell 4 Stars! 

Temp worker David Evans has been dreaming of Dr. Alun Kendrick ever since that one transcription job for him, because holy cats, that voice. Swoon. So when his agency offers him a position as Dr. Kendrick’s temporary office manager, David neglects to mention that he’s been permanently banished from offices. Because, forgiveness? Way easier than permission.

Alun Kendrick, former Queen’s Champion of Faerie’s Seelie Court, takes his job as a psychologist for Portland’s supernatural population extremely seriously. Secrecy is paramount: no non-supe can know of their existence. So when a gods-bedamned human shows up to replace his office manager, he intends to send the man packing. It shouldn’t be difficult — in the two hundred years since he was cursed, no human has ever failed to run screaming from his hideous face.

But cheeky David isn’t intimidated, and despite himself, Alun is drawn to David in a way that can only spell disaster: when fae consort with humans, it never ends well. And if the human has secrets of his own? The disaster might be greater than either of them could ever imagine.

 

Review

I was looking for a light paranormal romance and this just hit the spot.

Grumpy vs Sunny Hero is always a joy and a nice retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

The world building is good and the cast of others is a lot of fun,. I love how David is so much himself. He makes this book for me and his Aunts.

The end of the book gets a bit action adventure and I would love to pull back into the more character based stuff and the fun of the Other World which is much for intersting that Fairy to me and there are some plot holes  but all in and all a pleasure of a read.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How to Howl at the Moon by Eli Easton Review

 How to Howl at the Moon   by Eli Easton 4 Stars! 

Sheriff Lance Beaufort is not going to let trouble into his town, no sir. Tucked away in the California mountains, Mad Creek has secrets to keep, like the fact that half the town consists of ‘quickened’—dogs who have gained the ability to become human. Descended on both sides from Border Collies, Lance is as alert a guardian as they come.

Tim Weston is looking for a safe haven. After learning that his boss patented all of Tim’s work on vegetable hybrids in his own name, Tim quit his old job. A client offers him use of her cabin in Mad Creek, and Tim sees a chance for a new start. But the shy gardener has a way of fumbling and sounding like a liar around strangers, particularly gorgeous alpha men like Sheriff Beaufort.

Lance’s hackles are definitely raised by the lanky young stranger. He’s concerned about marijuana growers moving into Mad Creek, and he’s not satisfied with the boy’s story. Lance decides a bit of undercover work is called for. When Tim hits a beautiful black collie with his car and adopts the dog, its love at first sight for both Tim and Lance’s inner dog. Pretending to be a pet is about to get Sheriff Beaufort in very hot water.

 

 

Review

At first I thought this book might be too silly for me in its basic concept of the quickened. What I was thinking? Very few things are too silly for me!

This is a light hearted paranormal romance with characters, a little action, and sweet love and spicy story.

The dog shifter stuff ends up being fun and not silly. The heroes are great. Yea! More please!

Bear Necessities by Selena Kitt Review

2 Stars

IVY
The world has moved on, but Ivy just can’t. Besides, she has everything she needs on her sustainable-living wooded homestead, and no desire to brave this grim new world.

Until the day a massive bear chases her into an isolated cabin and she discovers she’s not alone.

With a giant bear prowling outside and a gruff, bearded, half-naked savage inside, Ivy finds herself cornered. The man, who calls himself Caleb, says he’ll take her home, but she doesn’t trust him, his offer, or herself with this giant, bronzed, mountain of a man.

He might be able to protect her from the sinister enemies lurking outside—but who is going to protect her from Caleb?

CALEB
Shifter by nature, drifter by choice, Caleb is uniquely designed to survive in this dark, new hell-on-earth, where the rule of law has been replaced by brute strength.

His scars may be deep but his secrets are deeper, and until he meets feisty, sinfully curvy Ivy one fateful afternoon, he’s not sure there’s much left worth surviving for.

Finding himself unable to resist the tempting, scrumptious morsel who lands on his doorstep, he realizes she’s the one he’s been craving, and she’s more than worth fighting for.

Caleb is determined to keep her safe from everything dark and dangerous outside. But can he save Ivy from herself?

Review

Selena Kitt is a good writer and I love Bear Shifters so I am in.

Everything that is here is good but all the development is missing. For every chapter that is here, we need another one to really have worthy character development, plot, setting, and romance.
