Camp Pooka has been a summer staple for Noah Matthews since he learned he was a shifter, and he’s looking forward to spending a final summer there before beginning his career as a veterinarian. But the season takes an unexpected turn when Noah meets blunt but charming Jack Rideaux and his goat, Milly. Soon Noah is sneaking off every night, gladly following Milly to Jack’s cabin.
When life and Noah’s work intrude and the two men lose touch, it’s time for meddling Milly to work her magic and help them reconnect.
Noah Matthews is an interesting guy and Jack is someone who I think could be, if I’d been given more time to get to know him.
This is a very short story and I’m sad to say, the shortness is the problem. There feels like there needs to be more to story for me to become invested in it. It’s well, written, has interesting side characters who make all too brief appearances and I love the premise.
But all the facts were thrown out at us, one after the other because there was simple no time to try and draw things out and build anticipation.
So, it’s a sweet little story, nothing really wrong with it and if you are looking for something uber-quick, then this will fill about 15 or 20 minutes for you. But it had the potential to be something pretty damn good and I’m a little sad that it feels like we were given more of a beginning and ending, leaving the whole thing feeling like an Oreo cookie with the frosting scraped out. Still good, but not nearly satisfying enough.
