TITLE: Alpaca Lies
SERIES: A Walk on the Wild Side Daily Dose Collection 2016
AUTHOR: Elizabeth Coldwell
PUBLISHER: Dreamspinner Press
LENGTH: 23 Pages
RELEASE DATE: June 1, 2016
Alpaca shifter Alfie dreams of a life beyond the petting zoo at stately Mattock Hall. He can’t explore his crush on Simon Mattock, heir to the estate and caretaker to the animals, for two reasons. One, he’s never shifted into human form, and two, Simon is saddled with a boyfriend who’s exploiting him for his wealth. But when a fire threatens both the zoo and Simon, Alfie knows the time has come to put his fears aside, make his first shift, and save them. He just hopes Simon will like what he sees.
I have to be honest, I don’t have a lot to say about this very short story. It’s cute, and loving shifter’s as I do, I always look for a story with a different angle and this one is a funny little twist. I don’t wanna spoil it for you, so I won’t tell you what, but I liked it.
Alfie and Simon are sweet, but it’s hard to become invested in a story that’s so short. The writing is good and I did enjoy the tone and pacing of the story so I can’t rate it less than 3 hearts.
It’s the perfect little bedtime story if you want a smile before you go to sleep. But you will wanna kick Simon’s “boyfriend” in the ass, trust me.
