This was a cute Thanksgiving fated mates short story. It was probably a 3.5 rating for me. I enjoyed the characters and the differences between Cooper and Scout. I will say Cooper's animal wasn't my favorite but it worked with the story. ...more

Someone to be thankful for
This author has such a knack for putting an interesting spin to an otherwise mundane speed dating experience. I enjoyed the sassy lady and her unique shifter mate. There mating might have been a little bit rushed, but the author made it a fast and fun experience. I look forward to reading the next speed dating fiasco, I can’t imagine it being less than amazing.

This is a fun, quick romance of Coop and Hattie. These are entertaining characters with instant chemistry. I enjoyed this cleverly written story that had me reading to the end. I received an arc of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Scout tried to warn his brother, Coop, to not come home because their mother is determined to find them mates. Coop took it all as a joke and continued toward home for Thanksgiving. His mom rushed him inside and asked if he had found a lady yet. His brother groaned. She started to tell him about an old industrial bar that was sold to a shifter. His brother sat with his face in his hands, having mumbled that he tried to warn Coop, but so far Coop couldn’t see the problem. Then his mom told him ab ...more

Just as the brothers are about to go in, the shifter police rush in to shut the unauthorized event down. Realizing that he can smell the scent of his fated mate, Coop g ...more

I grabbed this story because it sounded really good for a short quick read. I totally enjoyed this story and at first I really had to think of what the name ment. When I found out what animal Coop was I had to crack up laughing. Scout and Coop are sent to a speed dating shifter event. They are blindfolded and then they are suppose to smell if their mate is there. At the same time they are raided and Coop smells that his mate is in one of the room. They take off running. Coop and Hattie are a fun ...more
Totally Basted by Zoey Indiana is such a great read. A turkey shifter was definitely a pleasant and unexpected change of pace. I love the way she blended Coop’s family who adopted a wolf shifter into their family. Even though Coop is a prey shifter he is fierce and strong when it comes to meeting and finding his mate Hattie. I love Hattie’s strong will in the beginning. I think everyone can relate to the dreams of finding their true soulmate. And no, dreams never go as planned but the story will ...more

I know that shifter come in all shapes and sizes. This one almost take as the cake. So speed dating shifter style has its perks. The males need to be blindfolded, the women behind a “wall” and they basically get sniffed out. Shaking my head at this concept. But it works. But the council doesn’t want it. The old schoolers believes that there are limited if no places for human. Stopping the moving forward movement. Well, no full blooded shifters means the culture and species need to evolve to surv ...more

I was really looking forward to reading about blindfolded speed dating with shifters and fated mates. Alas, this was slightly different than I was expecting, but not in a bad way. It was a quick read with some twists and turns that lead to the characters going through some trials. Coop and Hattie were a nice couple. Since it is a novella, you don't learn too much about them as people or as a mated couple. Just enough the whet your appetite for more.

This is a Thanksgiving time book. Scout and Coop are brothers, Scout a wolf and Coop a turkey. Their mother makes them go to a blindfolded speed shifter dating event. Coop does not want to settle down yet, but he does meet his mate in Hattie. This is a quick book but it was very enjoyable. I laughed and was entertained. The characters were great and the story was great. There was an incident that they had to escape and trouble followed. Great book.

If you are looking for an entertaining read for your lunch break, look no further. This was a quick, fun read filled with some good character work along with an engaging story line. I would have liked to see this story made into a full length book and some more depth given to the characters and even the story line itself.

This is another fun read for the series and I'm really enjoying the lighthearted aspect of blindfolded shifters sniffing out their potential mates in an 'illegal' dating event. Of course, the shifter enforcers show up to close things down and everything goes sideways from there. This entertaining read will make you giggle, hit the edge of your seat and yeah, fan yourself to help with the heat ;) I can't wait to see who's next and how sideways their story will go. Good fun! ...more

Coop and Scout came home for Thanksgiving and their mother was up to her scheming again trying to find them a mate. There was someone in town that was sponsoring speed dating events for shifter/ human mating. This fast and fun romance between Coop and his human mate Hattie was filled with danger, running, tight spaces, surprises, love and family. Fun read

I've read several books written by Zoey Indiana; she has done a great job at writing a good short story; she is becoming one of my favorite authors. I can’t wait to read more of books her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the characters.

Coop comes home to celebrate Thanksgiving with his family. What he did not count on was to be sent to a speed dating event, finding his mate and the police to enter premises at the same time.
A strange setting for a romance, but it works, as the couple goes on the run from the police.
Entertaining, crazy and fast paced, it is a fun book, an enjoyable short read.

A fun, fast-paced short read, second book in this series of holiday themed books. Hattie is a cracker, stubborn, smart and won't be told what to do, she makes an excellent couple with Coop. I hope Scout is the next shifter who finds his mate as I felt he deserves it.

I enjoyed this new "Shifter Speed Dating" romance. It's a short and steamy story. It combines three of my favorite things, the holidays, paranormal shifter stories and hot romance. It's a fairly quick read that is fast paced and very good. I really like the plot and the characters. I cannot wait to read more of these new adventures. ...more

I think I got lost along the way. Wasn't it suppose to take 3 days to mate? I only read about 1. Still a cute holiday story! You don't see much for Thanksgiving and definitely not Coop's shifter beast.
