My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Cute, fluffy, and a great read. Pointy ears aside.
Three hundred year old Mitchell Faerigan has been chasing Clover Brady for two years, determined to make the gorgeous red head his mate. The man is skittish, but Mitchell is one determined fae. When Mitchell’s family threatens and then tries to kill Clover, all bets are off, and Mitchell claims what belongs to him. Now, he just has to convince Clover that loving him is worth the risk. And this fae is up to the challenge.
Clover Brady has a simple life running his simple antique shop and ogling the not-so-simple owner of Faerigan Cycles. Mitchell Faerigan is Clover’s dream man with his manly muscles, dark hair, and gorgeous blue eyes. He’d like nothing more than to throw himself into Mitchell’s arms and beg him to do naughty things to his body. Unfortunately, Clover is unwilling to risk his heart. He’s still recovering from the loss of his parents, and there is no way he could ever survive loving and possibly losing Mitchell. So he’ll keep his heart to himself, no matter how tempting the other man may be.
I picked this up because of the pointy ears on the cover. Then I read the reviews here and in other sites and my curiousity got the best of me.
Okay, so first of all, I have to agree that Clover sounder more like a fae name and Mitchell is more human. But then again, who am I to agree? How do I really know that in the real fae world our names are faery-like? Oh well, that aside, I found Clover to be a really interesting character: hilariously unaccepting, impatient, and gloriously loving. Unlike other mates who go all totally miserable or illogically accepting, Clover had a funny way to seeing his new self - faery dust and all. I had a good laugh.
As for Mitchell! Well! He was a patient one, and good for him that he stood up for his mate! I never expected his curse though, that took me by surprise. It was awesomely vindictive and it fed my need for vengeance. Yay! (I admit, I do get a little blood-thirsty at times)
So all of those who are expecting another angst & misery filled book - don't believe the blurb! This is better than the blurb! So go on and read it!
