If you give a squirrel a sword….

Clementine Winters knows her ex is out to get her. She also knows how to make man-meat with her big ol’sword. The problem is her ex is an underhanded, sneaky son of a beech tree, so she has no choice but to call in reinforcements. What she needs is someone to cover her back.

Clementine was so much fun. A squirrel shifter ex model who is great with a sword?! Insane and original. She was assertive without being pushy and she had a great sense of humor. Bryce was almost perfect but I didn't love his willingness to let her go (even if it made sense). His loving all of the craziness she brought to his life was a treat to read.

I liked Rae but the jury is still out on Nico...

3.5 stars.

I liked this a lot! Hero was sweet and shy, he blushed every time the heroine would say something to him. He was a virgin and she was the experienced one.
The book is funny and cute. I laughed at the heroine. I liked her a lot. Bring on Rae’s book!

“More fun for me. Smashing things is cathartic. Some chicks dig yoga and meditating. Me? Annihilation and adrenaline.”

“I’m going to find Grant. And then I’m going to play a game of pin the sword on the jackass.”

He’d be anything for Clemen

This was way more entertaining than I thought it would be, with an OTT squirell heroine and refreshingly different Hero.

This was my first book with a squirrel shifter. And I loved that part of it. I was really curious how the author would treat a squirrel shifter and Clementine behaved exactly like you would expect (a little hyper, nuts, sweet, feisty) but she is also loyal and determined. Bryce is a wolf shifter who has known that she was his mate for over a decade. He is a rogue wolf and so feels unworthy of a mate and that he would ruin her life so he avoids her and doesn't claim her.

Clementine has just broken

A little bit squirrelly is the first book of Nova Carlyle’s that I have read. I can honestly say that it won’t be the last. I read this book in one sitting and didn’t once put it down.
I will admit that I had mixed feelings on this story at first. In the beginning I liked the story but thought it was a little daft/silly but as the story progressed I found myself enjoying the story more and more. For the first part of this book I wasn’t a fan of Clementine. I was annoyed that she hired Bryce and

This is a new author for me and I was completely delighted! I just love Celia Kyle and her world of Grayslake and feel very protective of who is allowed to "play" there, but Ms.Carlyle fits right in! She created the perfect squirrel shifter when she wrote Clementine Winters. She is a bold, brave, just nutty enough to love, and a strong female character. I love the whole idea of her waving a sword around with the skill to fight her own battles. Bryce McCabe is just the one to make sure the battle ...more

A Little Bit Squirrelly is a hilariously fun quick read. It has action, danger, humor and a love story all rolled up into one fulfilling story.

Clementine knows that she's in danger, even if those around her don't fully believe her - so she gets someone who can help keep her safe - and in the process discovers her mate - if only she could get him to see it that way.

Bryce is a wolf shifter and he's known his mate for years - but he's also known he can't do anything with that knowledge - that is un

Good squirrels?

In my yard,squirrels are a pain. They steal the birdseed out of the feeders and are basically major pains. But this squirrel was different. Clementine was a squirrel shifting supermodel with a problem- her ex was trying to kill her. So she does what any smart squirrel would do,she hired a bodyguard. Bryce was a wolf with issues. Considered a rogue he was a loner whose pack abandoned him as a child.He shows up with his partner Rae,a panther shifter,and the fun begins. Bryce had sav

Enjoyed it!

This was the first time I have read this author and I have already purchased two more of her books,so mission accomplished Kindle Worlds. I love the opportunity to try new authors in established settings. This author hit the mark with likeable characters,and action laced storyline. I loved the unique shifters! This author is one I look forward to continuing to read!

Goosebumps on my heart

I absolutely loved this book. I like a little bit of humor or even silly in the main characters. Romance and danger and a feisty heroine. As Clementine tells Bryce, " The rest of the world looks at me and sees a crazy harpy. You look at me and I get goosebumps on my heart." Now, I believe that I have discovered another author that I like.

Hilarious Fun

You'll love the squirrelly Clementine Winters as she deals with exhole (ex+whole - her word for her ex fiancé) as well as trying to capture her reluctant mate. Feisty and over eager to use her sword for some well earned personal justice while making it a hilarious ride of laughs you won't son forget.😂😂😂

I absolutely adored these characters. I love sassy, badass women, and Clementine is definitely sassy and badass. Bryce is super sweet and they just mesh perfectly. I cannot wait for the next book from Nova

Quick, fun afternoon read about a fiesty & fierce little squirrel shifter that isn't going to let her ex get to her & a rogue wolf that's reserved and a bit standoff-ish that is there to protect her.

I liked this short story but wished there was more.

Rogue wolf,Bryce left alone as a young child.finds his mate but cannot claim her. He doesn’t fit into her world so he loves her from afar. Until her life is threatened.. this was about acceptance. Sad. Id love to see more of Bryce and clementine

Though it be tiny, it be mighty. This novella is a gobble-it-up-in-an-evening tasty little morsel of Carlyle's writing. A fun paranormal romp that doesn't skimp on character development and delivers on the sexy. If you're looking for characters with depth, fun dialogue, and unique paranormal world, look no further! This is your book. ...more

Oh my lawd! I loved this! I've never read Nova Carlyle before but I might have to start! She is freakin hilarious with her writing. I can't get over how much I loved loved loved Clementine! Bryce awww you just wanted to hug and kiss him poor guy! He's really had it rough and well Clementine isn't having any of it. Her squirrelness will kick ass and dig a grave for her man! So, we are used to seeing male characters be bad ass and alpha males. Take no nonsense and have soft hearts under all the br ...more

“Oh, come on!”She kicked uselessly at the air. “Lemme go!”“You’re emotionally distraught and I’m not going to let you put yourself in danger.”“False. I’m only ever emotionally distraught when I’m pms-ing and simultaneously watching kitten and puppy videos.”Clementine arched her foot out, trying to make contact with the wall and keep him from dragging her away from the door. “And, seriously. Sword. I have a sword. And I’m the boss. So you’re going to let me go, I’m going to go dispatch of the exhole,” 0 likes
“The rest of the world looks at me and sees a crazy harpy. You look at me and I get goosebumps on my heart .” She wound her arms around his neck and he picked her up until her feet dangled. “Don’t ever change Bryce McCabe. I want this wolf just as he is. Forever and ever.” 0 likes
