Huh! What ! LOL!!

Under The Yew Tree by Nero Seal

A what did I just read moment ! This is a cute little satire about two lovers, Prince William and Sir Thomas. They are heading for the alter but Sir Thomas has ideas and goals to meet before that happens. A little MM romance ! Love blooms as the unicorns graze in the beautiful meadow. Now baby unicorn is lurking about learning things he shouldn’t, mamma is chomping mad and dear ole dad is rainbow drunk.

The end of the book is hilarious and explains

Hilarious short from a writer whose debut novel Love of the Egoist is a dark and twisted M/M suspense. So you'd never expect how colorful, crazy, and funny he can be! I laughed so hard about this absurd short story. Great twist.

I am almost speechless trying to word this review. It’s hard to even think about this story without laughing. It definitely hit all the right comedic notes. Best of all Nero Seal is a genius at always making me wonder what will happen next. This isn’t my typical genre but I actually want to find more, which is the mark of a truly magnificent author. My only complaint is I never wanted it to end I was laughing so much!

5 stars for a brilliant, surprising and comedic read! Highly recommend!

What can I say, a little farce is needed in everyone's life and if m/m is your thing, grab this with both hands.

I had the real pleasure of beta reading this, if you want something that'll have you laughing out loud this is the book to lighten your day and make you go WTF?
It's something you need to experience for yourself, I can guarantee, like all of Nero's books, you won't forget it.

I don’t know how to explain this. Words escape me like elusive drunk unicorns but I’ll try to line them up for you.

It’s hilarious, it’s fabulously quotable, and it has a definite twist I was not expecting.
Should you read it? By George! Yes you should and yes you shall!

Will it make you laugh? I suggest not drinking any beverages while reading for fear of snorting them out your nose.

Thank you for this, Nero!

Can’t. Stop. Laughing. Seriously, from dark and dirty to hilarity, Nero Seal writes it all. And very well. This was a fun, lighthearted short with a high absurdity factor and a very special WTF moment.

Highly entertaining.

Wooing love 5 gold stars.

My review is as follows peeps:
As I began reading the story, my face just could not contain my excitement.

Nero Seal knows how to make you swoon. Like seriously, the dude give romance a whole new meaning.

I wannt cuddle and hug and shower him with kisses.

But don't worry he isn't just all about making your heart speed up and your soul swoon kinda guy. He makes you laugh so hard that you are literally crying.

And then the ending.

To end this review, I leave you with my final th

I have no idea what I just read, but this was just so much fun. I couldn’t stop laughing while I read every words that came out of Sir Thomas mouth. It was hilarious. It was a short story with some unexpected twists and nothing to be consider seriously. Definitely recommend it to anyone looking for something fun to read.
