So freaking charming!

What a charming little book! It took me right to my happy place - both times that I read it. It’s a simple story with simple words. Nothing flashy or complicated.

Mick’s gone a’wanderin’. Once he was grown he felt the need to leave his Pack and roam the countryside. He’s been traveling for a while now. One day he happens upon a wolf running in circles behind a fence. He is immediately enthralled by this exuberant pup.

Scott is a cross between Buddy the Elf and Dug, the dog from Up!.

He spends most of his time fuzzy and when human he’s pretty much naked. Like, all the time. He and his mate Daniel were thrown out of their birth pack and have been living on their own, barely scraping by. They’ve been playing house for a couple of years and it’s starting to take a toll on Daniel. He’s so overworked and exhausted he can’t even shift into his wolf any more. Thank goodness Mick found them when he did. These boys are in dire need of an Alpha to take care of them.

I had so much fun reading this book. It is written in a way that just makes me sigh and giggle while reading. The author really got me in the mindset of the animal way more than the man. These men say what is on their minds the minute they think of it. For example:

Mick: “I like your belly. I kinda want to lick it.”

Daniel: “Not mean, more… keen. Hey, that rhymed.”

But my favorite is Scotty. Oh, Scotty. He has a permanent spot reserved in my pocket just for him. He’s so innocent and loving and joyful. Like a big puppy. Or, as I’ve mentioned before, Buddy the Elf.

“I like naps." And cheese. And purple. And snuggles. Snuggles were great.”

He loves anything and everything and is so excited all the time.

“What are we doing?”
“We’re going to fuck, honey.”
“I love fucking!”

Even when he’s pissed off he’s still the most adorable little thing.

“I just want to find him and bite him and take him home and sit on him.”

How can you not love Scotty?

This was a simple little feel-good story. There was about a page and a half of angst that was cute in its own right. There is quite a bit of sex in here but, not to worry, there's still a bit of a plot too. This is a complete comfort read and will forever be a go-to book when I'm feeling down. Thank you B.A. Tortuga, for giving me such a precious little gem of a story.
