Skylar is used to the way people think of him as frightening, mean, and dangerous. Snakes are not the most popular shifters around and the fact he grew up wild doesn't help. He knows the way he's chosen to live alone in the woods only makes things worse, but he didn't think it meant people thought him capable of killing a couple of wolf puppies.
Determined to find the real monster who left them to die, Skylar calls up the only wolf he knows, a man he always wished would see him as more than a snake....

....that sweet southern twang of male strength and kindness was charming. The entire story was a bit fluffy but so dang on charming and endearing. I was left smiling, my heart all beaming in happiness.lol
What a great idea to create a shifter snake and werewolf romance. I wish the story had been longer because I've never come across a shifter snakes story. Skylar's history was interesting to me and I wanted more of it. I loved the inter-species romance. And, I loved when Hansel and Gretel attacked Skylar's love interest pants leg, it was adorable. They were protecting their daddy snake, too cute!
I own the ebook and that was the first book by Megan Derr that I ever bought and which led to me buying all her other titles. I bought the audiobook because I liked the ebook. Is it better? I'd say it's about even.
I liked how the story had a fairytale-like element to it. It has a contemporary setting but the characters are shifters. The narrative is easy to listen to and follow, would probably be great to listen to when you're just settling into bed.
When Skylar's protectiveness kicked-in because of the puppies being in distress.
Some parts of it made me go 'awwwwwwwwww' just because of the sheer adorableness of the puppies and Skylar.
Avid reader, reviewer, blogger and budding author.
Right at the top. I'll definitely listen to this one over and over again, just too much fun.
The surprise that Brady has for Skylar at the end.
EVERYTHING! Seriously , this man could just sit and read the phone book out loud and I'd be entranced.
The way the pups saw Skylar for who he really was, no judgement.
Skylar is a snake shifter and a loner by nature. He lives alone and secluded in the woods, it’s the way he prefers it. But his self imposed seclusion is about to abruptly end when he wakes one night to the soft cries of a couple wolf shifter pups. Skylar reaches out for help from the only wolf shifter he knows, Brady.
Skylar and Brady have always been uneasy around each other, each thinking the other disliked him, when in fact it was a mutual attraction that made them unsteady. Forced into close quarters while Brady tries to figure out why the pups were dumped off at Skylars pond, presumably so the nasty snake shifter would have them as a midnight snack, the two finally get to see each other for who they really are.
This was just a fast paced, fun read with a little bit of mystery and suspense. It’s difficult to write too much about this short, as I don’t want to give everything away. Derr has a knack for writing these short stories that contain more content than a lot of full length novels. Her characters are always three dimensional and her stories very vivid. Add to that the sultry voice of Paul Morey as he gives her words and characters a voice and the end result is a fantastic audible that will make the time fly by.
I was disapointed with the storyline. It was too simplistic, and the adoption aspect required way too much suspension of disbelief. "We all think (unfailry) that you are unstable. But here, adopt two babies anyway! That you didn't even apply for! Sure, we'll let someone else apply on your behalf without ever telling you or doing a background check!".
I've listened to a few things by this narrator now, and he's just meh.
It was cute, in a superficial way.
