Sweet and short!

This was a short, sweet and quick listen.

I loved Colin and Ryder's story it was cute and they were perfect for eachother.

This book is a prequel in the Licking Thicket series and can be listened to as a standalone. I really wished this story was longer as the author did a brilliant job on the character development.

Although this was a 2 hr listen I was drawn the story and the characters.

Michael Dean's audio delivery and narration was absolutely brilliant!

The perfect short story!!

OY I broke my rule and listened to Flakes by Lucy Lennox and May Archer BEFORE I read it! OMG I loved it...Colin and Ryder's story is super sweet, so very sexy and downright adorable...These 2 couldn't be more opposite and yet, they fit perfectly! Hot, huge, muscled, tatted, construction contractor Ryder and the adorable, snarky, sweet and sexy, interior designer Colin are "frenemies" with some smoking hot chemistry...Set in a forced proximity situation, can a game of truth or shot lead to love?? GAH..A fabulous short listen that I recommend highly...Michael (Pauley) Dean's Colin narration was fantastic!! I was in stitches from the get go as expected from Lucy and May!!

Colin and Ryder

10 stars don't do justice. Colin and Ryder are perfect for each other, and the 5 yr gap for epilogue was brilliant. Michael was eargasm worthy. Don't miss this one

Loved it!

I love the story and how they were able to work together so in the future they are together. With a daughter for the future, can’t wait to see what’s next.

Cute and funny novella

Prequels are always interesting. Licking Thicket began as a one-off for Ms. Lennox and Ms. Archer. Their first book was loved by fans, and I believe the writing duo had fun with the collaboration. And so came book 2. When the opportunity to create a short origin story arose, the women took it.

Ryder and Colin are an established couple in the first book, with their daughter Sadie. But what was their backstory? How did they wind up getting together? This book answers those questions.

I enjoyed the (sort-of) enemies to (very much) lovers story. There are reasons the two men have been antagonistic to each other, and they weren’t things I could have predicted. And, personally, I’ll never look at tacky flamingoes the same way again.

This is a fun flirty book and it’s in the epilogue that I got my Licking Thicket fix.

Two more quick notes – I adore Michael Dean and just thought he was fabulous narrating this story and I really liked that Colin was on the cover. Of the two characters, he definitely had the most sass – a trait I admire in memorable characters. If you’re starting here, you’ll definitely want to move on to Books 1 and 2 and I personally cannot wait for Book 3.
