4 Stars

The Foxling Soldati is the fast-paced, gripping and wildly romantic sequel to Cochet’s The Soldati Prince. I daresay this story may have even surpassed its predecessor in terms of plot, romance and overall reader enjoyment.

In the first story we met Toka (the sweet Foxling servant to Soldati King Khalon) and Rayner (Khalon’s closest friend and second in command). They’re been in love for centuries, but due to their stations in life and the old laws of the kingdom, they have been unable to
Centuries ago when Khalon took over Soldati for his father, sweet Toka takes his place as a servant in Khalon’s house. When introduced to the court, he catches Rayner’s eye. But it is not meant to be. You see, it is forbidden for servants and higher stationed citizens to mate. However, this can’t stop a heart from yearning….Throw in a vengeful bear king and you have a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

I’m going to admit, I almost dnf this book in the first few pages due to my own

Still liked it!

A Solid 4.5 Stars for both the narration and the story.

My, did this pack a hell of a punch in such a short number of pages. It made me laugh, rage, swoon and ultimately made me whoop in joy when all the evil bastards got what they deserved (looking at you evil bastard of the bear-shifter variety).

Once again, like the previous book, I wish this was longer and wished it had an epilogue. It also didn’t explain how there was suddenly

The second book in the Soldati Hearts centers around Toka, the adorable fox servant we met in the last book, and Rayner, one of the Soldati warriors and very good friends with the king. It was obvious there was more to their story in the last story, and now we get to read about them!

I just loved Toka. He is just a sweet, sky, caring and wonderful person, and I love his devotion to his king and his prince. I love that he was also strong when facing challenging times towards the later half of the
4.5 stars

This is the second in the Soldati Hearts books, and I wouldn't go into it without having read the first.

I read through this novella in one sitting. It was unexpectedly intense (there is a trigger warning for references/scenes of sexual assault), fast-paced, romantic, and emotional. It grabbed me and wouldn't let go.

I really adored this couple. Rayner, the Soldati King's best-friend and second, along with his love interest, the servant foxling Toka, were introduced in the first book. T

A thoroughly enjoyable little shifter fantasy, this sequel to the Soldati Prince was a nice visit back to the strange and charming parallel universe this is set in.

Rayner, trusted Soldati warrior and best friend and 2nd in rank to King Khalon, has secretly been pining for a little foxling for centuries. Yeah, you heard that right. Talk about a slow burn huh? He and Toka have been eying each other for years, both hesitant to make any grand gestures or official proclamations, mainly becau

I loved it! It's a short novella, ~120 pages, but a lot happens and the narration feels complete. It's really good.
Not 5 stars only because I'd loved a longer epilogue.

The Foxling Soldati is the second book in Charlie Cochet’s Soldati Hearts series. This is a really cute and creative shifter series set in a magical world where shifters protect the human realm from demons. While the first book has more interaction with the human side since Riley is human, this story focuses more on the internal politics of the Soldati world. So it was nice here to get another

I was so excited to see book 2 in Charlie Cochet’s Soldati Hearts series up to review. I grabbed it the second I could. I fell so in love with Khalon and Riley in book one and was quite eager to see what happened next.

In The Foxling Soldati, we have Toka, who is a royal servant to the king and becomes Riley’s best friend. And Rayner, a Soldati Warrior and the King’s second.

Toka is a foxling that is beyond words wonderful. His strength in who he is and what he needs to do is lovely. He’s in love
Such a cutie! Toka is an adorable foxling shifter and he is in love with Rayner, second to the King, Khalon. Their union is forbidden by Soldati law, but their hearts no not wrong. :) When a bully King from another realm visits, he causes nothing but chaos and anger.

I enjoyed this short story and look forward to more in the series. I have an idea and Eyre is in love with a certain "military" leader.

3.5 adorbs stars.
I am seriously loving this series...

'The Foxling Soldati' is the second book in Charlie Cochet's 'Soldati Hearts' and while I did give both of these books 4 stars I have to say I in actual fact did like this one just a tiny bit more. So if I could I probably would have given this one 4.25 stars but somehow that just seems like splitting hairs. So I'm going to call it even at 4 stars and a little more love for this one.

a great romance and there were times I was biting my nails.
looking forward to the next book

I probably liked this couple more than the first one, but the book was way too short. There was also a part when we find out that Rayner slept with other people, but I ignored it since he and Toka hadn't been together yet. Sure they both had feelings for each other, and the cute Toka saved himself for Rayner, but is not as if what Rayner did (all off page and with barely any infos) was cheating, since they weren't a couple, they hadn't confessed their mutual feelings, and they hadn't slep
3.5 Stars

Ok so normally I love Charlie Cochet, but I must admit this is the weakest of her series in my opinion. Both this book and the first feel rushed. I really enjoy the world building, but the characters relationships and decisions haven't felt fully integrated and motivated. It's like in this story Toka and Rayner's relationship is just presumed and this is the kickstart of it moving into each being together, but there's really no explanation as to why things that have gone on for centurie

Love love love this! Rayner is such a hottie, and Toka is just freaking adorable. It's great to spend more time with Khalon and Riley as well (oh how I love Riley's snarkiness!). Having dispatched with the majority of the world-building in The Soldati Prince, Cochet was able to focus more on the characters in this novella. As with the first story I was sad that this was so short, but I can say that I will be snapping up any other Soldati books that Cochet writes in a heartbeat! ...more

A short read, but we'll worth the time.

Charlie Cochet continues world building in the second Soldati story. While not imperative to read the first book it will certainly enhance the reading of the Foxling Soldati.
Raynor and the delightfully mischievous Torka have simmered in lust for centuries. Finally coming together there long awaited uniting is marred by the visit of a neighboring king. This is the first glimpse that we as readers are given of the other kingdoms up until now we have only seen

Another pretty cover and fun story, a 3.5 for sure! Toka is sweet but not exactly shy, and Rayner is quite smitten with his little foxling and they make for a cute couple. Some drama again with this story, this time with another kingdom and Riley and Khalon as well. Looking forward to more books in this series (I hope, I hope)!

Charlie should write these types of “fairytales” FOREVER!

While I’m a big fan of her THIRDS stories, I think she is truly EXCEPTIONAL when it comes to her fairy tale type stories. This, her Christmas series ( and her Intrepid series ( just absolutely GLOW with her creativity!

THIRDS is funny and sexy and witty, but these series are super creative and whimsical as well as deeply romantic and touching.

Okay, this book KILLED me! It's not only held me on the edge of my seat, it left me with a nauseating stomach that wouldn't settle down until it was all finished! The book starts sweetly, with Raynar and Toka playing around, continue to Ezra (one of the Soldati "Royal Entourage" to King Khalon) prophesying a visit from the King of the Bear-Shifters going to end up VERY badly. You don't know the half of that!

A great follow up to book one in the Soldati Hearts series.
Toka and Rayner have been dancing around each other for hundreds of years. For the past year since Khalon King and Riley have been together, things have heated up. However, there is a law that stops a Soldati warrior from mating with a servant. When a King from a nearby realm comes to visit, one with a hatred for Rayner, everything changes and Rayner must scramble to save the man he loves.
Wow, what starts as such a lovely romantic read

I've never cried so much in such a short story! Damn! But, seriously, Toka and Rayner managed to catch my heart from the beginning itself! Maybe it was because we'd already been introduced in the first book, and were already rooting for them, (just like Riley🤓) or because they are such sweet and caring characters that you have no choice but to love them. ...more

Beautiful! I loved Toka, he is too sweet for his own good.

There is plenty of drama & angst here. I got all teary eyed in a couple of places as well as nervous but true love, honor and dignity saved the day!

It's a great way to spend the afternoon and left me happy and looking forward to the next book in the series.

What a wonderful story. Charlie did it again. She is one of the greatest writers to me. She draws me into her stories and I don't put the book down until I'm done. This one was to short it felt like I picked up the book an I was done. The thirds is like that too. Charlie Cochet is a great author to me. I recommend all her books.

“Io… io sono la tua piccola volpe, Rayner. Sono solo tuo, se desidererai avermi.” Toka lasciò cadere lo sguardo sulle dita, le guance in fiamme. Non sapeva bene da dove venisse quell’audacia. Immaginava che lo avesse spronato quella che Rayner aveva mostrato negli ultimi tempi nei suoi confronti. “Non ho permesso a nessun altro di… toccarmi in un… modo così intimo.”

Rayner sembrava sbalordito. “Ti sei conservato per me?”
Toka annuì. “Fin da quando ho incontrato il tuo sguardo, ho saputo che non ci sarebbe stato nessun altro”
“Siete una canaglia della peggiore specie, signore. Affascinate i foxling con la vostra bella faccia e il sorriso malandrino. Amoreggiate con loro nelle foreste solo per abbandonarli a languire di desiderio per il vostro tocco
“Te lo giuro, sei l’unico foxling che desidero.”
Toka sorrise dolcemente e gli posò il palmo della mano sul viso. Si alzò sulla punta delle dita dei piedi per dargli un tenero bacio. “So che sono l’unico foxling che desideri.” Il suo sorriso si fece malizioso. “Però il resto è vero. Sei bello, hai un sorriso malandrino, hai amoreggiato con me e senza alcun dubbio anelerò il tuo tocco non appena ti allontanerai.”
Rayner si leccò il labbro inferiore, gli occhi color ambra che brillavano di un fuoco familiare. “Beh, immagino che dovrò accertarmi di non lasciarti senza il mio tocco troppo a lungo.”
