I was looking for another light read and this certainly falls into the "cute" category. The premise is a sweet and burgeoning romance between two paranormal ladies: one is a fae and the other a werewolf.

The quality of writing is pretty solid and I liked the characters. Particularly, I liked Shirl's nonbinary roommate. The author did a good job of packing a lot into such a small amount of pages (about 50). I didn't think it was omg amazing but I liked the quirkiness of the story and ended up wis

Cute novella about Frannie, a fae library student whose magic makes colored lights (want!) and Shirl, a shifter pharmacy tech, who meet and fall for each other... then have to work out some snarls. (Not shifter snarls! Logistics and prioritization snarls.) I'm always looking for more F/F romance, and this one was adorable. Shirl is understandably nervous about Frannie's reaction to her shifting, given some of her previous relationship experiences. Frannie isn't as thoughtful as she should be as ...more

Frannie and Shirl are SO cute together. It’s told in the first person from Frannie’s perspective, so we get more of her than Shirl, but because it’s only 50 pages long, we don’t get to know either of them particularly well (although what I saw, I liked a whole lot!). Their flirty banter is especially fabulous and had me smiling throughout.

Full review:
Do you want 50 pages of fluffiness with paranormal girlfriends, a supportive nonbinary roommate, a werewolf that's really like a big puppy, relatable studying-feels, and more? Then this book is for you.

I always love little hints in urban fantasy stories where paranormal beings are public about how society has adjusted to them. Having their paranormal status on their ID (and not even just the fact, but their species as well) is really invasive, and a detail that makes you think, but it wasn't rea

Super-cute, low-stakes f/f romance between a fae library student and a shifter pharmacy tech. Jeffries does a wonderful job of describing that feeling of when you just click with someone and the giddiness of a new relationship. There’s a lot of worldbuilding and a really solid sense of place for such a short story, and I really appreciated that what narrative conflict there is comes quite believably out of that worldbuilding.

An Engaging Love Story

Love stories are typically not my favorite trope, much to much angsty. But this was just right. It's a sweet little quirky love story I felt very privileged to be allowed to partake in.

also faeries and shifters, what's not to love?

Yes please more lgbtqia love stories from actually lgbtqia authors.

This warmed my heart this morning, and I needed it.

This was lovely!!!

This is actually a type of romance that I usually struggle to enjoy. It’s a short novelette, meaning it doesn’t have much time for depth or complexity, and it’s a very fluffy, straightforward story. There isn’t much plot and it’s minimal-conflict. This is a simple story of two women meeting, falling in love, and developing a relationship with each other. I usually prefer my romances to have much more complexity and angst to prevent me from being bored but I actually thoroughly

So it's about two paranormal twenty-something gals who meet at the drug store where one of them works and embark on a relationship.
Seventy percent fluff and smut, thirty percent quiet angst about exes and stress and depression etc. Overall pretty cute. I like soft werewolves :)

It was really cute and sweet and I wished it was longer or part of a series. I didn't want the story to end.

This was an adorable and very queer little slice of life. Makes me wish shifter girlfriend were a real thing in the world. I loved it!

This is utterly charming and I want so many more stories set in this universe. I especially loved all the shoutouts to Richmond and the reference to Dear Sugar and Captain Awkward.

Supercute shifter f/f romance.
This was a super cute and super adorable. There was just enough tension to propel the plot forward without giving me any real anxiety about how it would end - what a wonderful comfort read.

Loved it: albeit short, but a totally great read.
Characters were like able, even the briefly introduced supporting cast and so was the story of course, why else read it right!
