Finn is focused on continuing the success of his family's bakery. Eventually, he'll settle down with an alpha and start a family, but for now, he's content to satisfy his needs with casual hook-ups. Then a gorgeous stranger walks into the bakery, and Finn's whole world shifts.
Levi's father was a wolf shifter, but he was raised by his human mother and—like most hybrids—has never shown any wolf characteristics. That all changes when he enters Lupine Bakery and every instinct tells him the omega behind the counter is his.
Both Finn and Levi try to ignore what their hearts and bodies are telling them, but an unexpected pregnancy may force them to face what fate has in store.
I loved this prequel to the Trillum Creek Series because it was exactly the right length for the kind of story it wanted to tell, and it was exploding with personality. It's the kind of romance that has both an erection and a bakery in the first paragraph. That's all you really need to know.
But I mostly write this blog because I can't go into the nitty gritty about the sex in my Amazon reviews without getting banned, so here we go. However, I must warn you. The review of the sex is chalk full of spoilers.
I always appreciate an unexpected heat. But this book also offers unexpected slick, unexpected knotting, and an unexpected pregnancy. Be still my heart.
The pacing of the sex and the use of kinks were both spot on. You can expect fated mates, a shy alpha who takes control in the bedroom, and a delightful kitchen scene where Finn (the omega) gets pounded into the countertop from behind. And it only took me about an hour to read. That's a lot of excitement for one hour of reading.
This short story gives a taste of some of the Trillum Creek love stories Violet will be releasing in 2019. I'm completely intrigued. Violet will be hitting a few of my favorite tropes: the beta who thinks he can't satisfy his alpha lover (but he's wrong, of course), and the older man who's lost hope on love (but is just about to meet his fated mate). I'm anxiously awaiting the next book!
