*Snort laugh*

Stiles and Derek behave like teenagers. Derek is his grumpy self and Stiles is his snarky self.

They both stupid and they both are the last to realise how they feel about each other. Again.

Funny and sweet and it got a little hot there at the end.

3.5 stars - this is one of those times that Goodreads really needs to install the half star feature, because this is a solid 3.5 stars.

Derek is inhumanly good looking and for a dose of reality, everyone in Beacon Hills is not blind or immune to his beauty - demonstrating how tough life must be for Derek (and people like Tyler Hoechlin) who are cursed with such great and terrible drool-worthy beauty. Unfortunately though there are a few who are pushy fan girls prowling for him - the cashier at t

The teasing with the cashier is fun but then they're having sex and it ends there. Meh. Would have been good if it skipped sex for giggles and kisses.

This was cute.

Arguing Sterek can be so much fun like it is here.

I need more!

Favorite Quotes:
"Poor Derek. But that's okay. You saved me from the harpy, I saved you from the Cashier."

but he was too well-trained to ignore Stiles in distress.
Fun, funny and great banter.

Fun, fluffy and easy to read. A little sweet with a hint of hot. Perfect for a lunch break.

Well I read this story based on the title alone, and the fact is by a favorite fantasy author of mine. I am embarrassed to admit at the beginning I didn’t even know it was a fanfic, though I am sure it said so somewhere. I enjoyed this simply as a werewolf ficky that was both funny and sexy! Stiles is stoic and secretly protective, Derek is sassy and adorable! After I finished reading it and realized it was a shipper fic, I looked into the show and now I want to watch Teen Wolf! Very cute!

Pretty good for Sterek fans, not sure there is enough "there" there for anyone else. Not long enough. Plenty of snark.
Arpi !!!getting high on books!!!
This was just fine. It felt rushed and Derek and stiles sexy times just didn't have that oomph factor and I found their sexual chemistry missing. But 3 stars for all the snark

Light. Fluff. Not all that much substance, or plot, but Derek and Stiles' characterisation was pretty well-done.

Great banter.

Cute. I liked the bickering.
Derek getting annoyed at girls flirting was cute too.
Oct 28, 2014 Camilla rated it really liked it
A quick, cute Sterek read.

Canon compliant + Stiles does magic.

It's the way we love them best, or at least the way I love them best: grumpy and sarcastic.

Derek is trying to get a girl off his case, by saying he has a boyfriend, which leads to the town thinking Stiles and Derek are dating, and we all know my love for fake/pretend relationships, so of course this is glorious.

4 stars.
3.5 stars
I enjoyed this but it felt a little awkward at the beginning and the characters felt slightly out of character to me – they seemed a little bit TOO childish at times with the bickering, although at others it worked and was funny.

There is a LOT of obliviousness from both parties and it seems the entire town and the Sheriff know before they do that they act like a married couple, which is fun. Overall it was a fun read.

A cute glimpse into a possible future for Stiles and Derek.
They decide to get naughty totally out of the blue (up till then they were only teased by those around them, but they never took it seriously) and the story ends with them in bed, but no real resolution about how they will work as a couple.
I still liked it because it was simple and adorable (and by Megan Derr :))

I blame Megan Derr entirely for my obsession with Derek/Stiles fanfiction.


Thank you, Ms Derr, for writing this delightful gateway fic, and combining hilarity, m/m romance, and adventure, into something so addictive, hard drugs could beg it for tips.
