Rating: 3 stars (★★★☆☆)
Theodore Reinhart isn’t quite sure what he’s gotten himself into. At the urging of others, he’s ended up at WaddleCon, the perfect place for a penguin shifter to find a mate. But Theodore isn’t looking for the woman of his dreams, and the entire event is focused on male-female pairings. He’s resigned to just get through the end of the weekend. But when a speed dating mishap puts him across a table from Wesley O’Neill, things change. Especially when Wesley makes it known he might be interested right back.
Theodore and Wesley end up spending some time together, and Theodore thinks he may have found what he’s looking for. But when he discovers an abandoned egg during their date, all hell breaks loose. Theodore and Wesley find themselves on the run, all the while doing everything they can to keep the egg safe. Will this bring them closer together? Or is this the kind of thing that will tear them apart?
Penguin shifters? Sign me up. I’m all for fun and unique shifters, and an action-packed, comedy of errors type story like this is an easy sell for me. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect going in. And I was pleasantly surprised.
This is on the shorter side as it’s a part of Dreamspinner’s 2016 daily does series. But it’s well worth picking up and taking the time to read.
