In the world of the Little Goddess
After a rocky start and some unexpected battles, Teague Sullivan may have found a home at Green’s Hill. With Jack and Katy by his side, he has the chance to achieve a happiness he only dreamed of during his impoverished childhood.
But much of Teague’s happiness depends upon being worthy of serving Green and Lady Cory, two leaders he’d die for, and two people who gave him a chance to be a good man. Teague needs to serve them to be feel worthy of love, but Jack resents anything that takes Teague away from his lovers, even his duty.
The three of them, Jack, Teague, and Katy, perform a delicate dance with an uncertain crescendo. What’s more likely to destroy them? Jack’s jealousy, Cory’s wrath, or the true enemy, the rival wolf pack with the insane leaders who are trying to take over Green’s turf? Teague Sullivan, who never thought much of himself, is suddenly the crux of everything he’s ever loved. Can he become the man and alpha wolf his people need?
For the first time in print: Becoming and Being.
This book continues the story of Teague, Jack and Katy, as they attempt to settle in to life on Green’s Hill, and as a bonded threesome. Except….
Jack is a shithead and almost gets killed, Teague has breakdown, and Katy slaps the shit out of Jack (finally!). Bracken resists the urge to kill Jack dead. Then Teague almost dies AGAIN, Jack and Katy almost die AGAIN, Cory almost dies AGAIN. And Teague can’t fully bond with Jack and Katy because he’s too tied up with Cory and Green, and his devotion to them. That’s pretty much the plot of this book! Oh yah, there’s also really sweet moments, and always, the sex. Yummy sex!
Speaking of Cory, one of the things I like about these two books is that we see the bad shit that happens in the last two Little Goddess books from a different perspective. We also see interaction between Cory and Teague that we didn’t see in the main books, and even glimpses of Green’s past when he tells stories as he tries to soothe Teague. It’s cool to see things we know happened in a different way.
This book seemed less angsty than the first one, in some ways at least. The beginning was so much of Teague’s damage, this second part is more about external stuff and how it affects the three werewolves. Which certainly causes angst, but somehow it’s different. External instead of internal maybe. By now all of Teague’s demons have been exposed, and it’s about healing, especially after a big fuck up at the start of the book anyway. Thank you Jacky, you asshole!
I love Teague dearly and I so loved visiting this world again. These two books are a perfect addition to this overall series, and unfortunately this is it I’m afraid. The main series is done, and this spin-off series is done. A standalone book containing a few shorts has also been re-released, so I think that’s all of the Little Goddess books. Maybe Amy will get a wild hair at some point and give us more… We can hope!
I don’t have the words to convey how much I have loved all of the Little Goddess books. There are so many wonderful things about them, but mostly it’s the characters. Cory, Bracken, Green and Adrian, always Adrian, hold a special place in my readers heart. After these stories, Teague has been added to that place. I am so glad Teague, Jack (even though he’s an asshole), and Katy got their own moment in the sun. I do love a damaged character, and Teague is so damaged. Until he isn’t!
Please, if you haven’t read the Little Goddess books, you have to give them a try, it is so worth it.
Thanks again Amy, for giving us this world!
