    Okay, I fully admit I m being a sappy fucker here, but I really did enjoy this short 60 page novella, Backwoods Asylum Or as I like to call it Felonious Use of Puppies on Unsuspecting M M Readers Basically, our hero, Skylar, a cottonmouth snake shifter, is awakened at 3 am one night by the sound of two whimpering wolf puppies later to be known as Hansel and Gretel that have been abandoned in the snow, close to his secluded cabin in the middle of the woods.The shifter puppies imme Okay, I fully admit I m being a sappy fucker here, but I really did enjoy this short 60 page novella, Backwoods Asylum Or as I like to call it Felonious Use of Puppies on Unsuspecting M M Readers Basically, our hero, Skylar, a cottonmouth snake shifter, is awakened at 3 am one night by the sound of two whimpering wolf puppies later to be known as Hansel and Gretel that have been abandoned in the snow, close to his secluded cabin in the middle of the woods.The shifter puppies immediately bond with Skylar and the reader due to ridiiiiiiiculous amounts of adorable puppy prose And nuzzling And licking And I fell for it hook, line and goddamn sinker Reel my puppy lovin ass into the boat already It s damn cold out here sigh As Skylar only knows one wolf shifter, Brady, he calls the hot, sexy wolf that he crushed on all through college for help to figure out where the pups came from and how to get them safely home.There is, of course, a conspiracy to use the a freaking dorable pups to pin their kidnapping on the big, bad, antisocial snake, which pretty much immediately backfires it s only 60 pages here, folks , someone very deservedly gets fanged take that ya big stupid beeatch , then the pups are returned to pack lands.The big, bad, antisocial snake is heartbroken, but to the pack s dismay, so are the hearts of the puppies One impossible holiday wish, comin right up, so suspending reality in 3, 2, 1 Go Skylar and Brady begin dating and unseen wheels turn behind the scenes, custody arrangements are made and we have what looks very likely to transform from an HFN to an HEA for 5THE big, awesome, however unlikely, sugary END.This one rates 3 3 4 stars for me, although I do confess that I rolled my eyes on several occasions and felt like one of those bulls with a ring through its nose being led around Disneyland now and again But I can be a sucker for cute and a complete SLUT for puppies, so I m sticking to my guns on this one It genuinely made me smile between eye rolls

    Wait, let me put on my big suspension of disbelief pants.So this is about a snake shifter Okay, I can go with that But wait, Skylar puts on his clothes, turns into a snake, slithers into the woods and when he shifts back his clothes are still on Okaaaay Trying to hold on to my suspension of disbelief pants here.And then we have Brady, a wolf shifter Skylar knows from college Brady has always acted like a dick to Skylar because he wanted to get to know him better but was irritated that Sky Wait, let me put on my big suspension of disbelief pants.So this is about a snake shifter Okay, I can go with that But wait, Skylar puts on his clothes, turns into a snake, slithers into the woods and when he shifts back his clothes are still on Okaaaay Trying to hold on to my suspension of disbelief pants here.And then we have Brady, a wolf shifter Skylar knows from college Brady has always acted like a dick to Skylar because he wanted to get to know him better but was irritated that Skylar was afraid of him Because yes, acting like a dick totally helps when you want to get to know someone better.When Skylar finds two shifter pups in the woods they instantly take to him But now to find out who has abandoned these babies When they find out whodunit everyone immediately caves and confesses Of course they do Trying To Hold On To Pants.Now that the case is solved, Brady and Skylar are trying to date And of course this means spending the weekend together, talking about the pup you are planning to adopt and ask if you want to raise her together Because yes, that is totally acceptable when you have just started dating.And now that these pups have no parents it is obvious that Skylar is perfectly fit as a parent So while the paperwork is getting done, the pups are taken away from their foster home and being brought to Skylar and Brady Sure, why do we need paperwork and official channels anyway.I m sorry, my pants just caught fire I think I need a new pair.PS sex in off page I repeat, there is NO SEX whatsoever

    3.5 starsEditing problem aside since I am familiar with that issue of LT3 releases , I thought the story was really lovely There wasn t plenty of snake shifters out there and Sky was an adorable one As always, Megan Derr s stories were chaste on sex scenes, so forgot about finding hot sweaty men, banging on the wall, bending of the sofa, head pounding on headboard stuffs You just have to believe that Brady and Sky were doing it I did thought the conspiracy stuffs were a little bit to 3.5 starsEditing problem aside since I am familiar with that issue of LT3 releases , I thought the story was really lovely There wasn t plenty of snake shifters out there and Sky was an adorable one As always, Megan Derr s stories were chaste on sex scenes, so forgot about finding hot sweaty men, banging on the wall, bending of the sofa, head pounding on headboard stuffs You just have to believe that Brady and Sky were doing it I did thought the conspiracy stuffs were a little bit too behind the scene The story was talking about rallies and meetings but we never really see it including the confrontation that Sky had with one of the characters In that sense, the story felt a bit isolated though considering the setting Sky s place was indeed isolated from others , this might be intentional But it made the story was rather on the told not shown spectrum.Still, the wolf puppies won my heart BIG time especially since they stayed as puppies and not shifting into human babies They were quickly taking Sky as their Mommy , it was so cute

    So I was in a reading slump and decided to give this quickie a try I ve never read a book about a snake shifter It was okay Way too short to have much substance It s also clean , not even fade to black really Just very basic Sadly, I m a bit disappointed.

    Cute little romance, but let s face it it s the werewolf puppies, Hansel and Gretel, who make this story Poor little puppies Especially poor puppies who will apparently be stuck with the names Hansel and Gretel Have fun in middle school, boys Audio Paul Morey narrates this story and he s pretty good as well I ve listened to his narrations of Dance with the Devil and Dance in the Dark about 150 times Let s just say I like them.However, he or someone, somewhere made the decision to give Cute little romance, but let s face it it s the werewolf puppies, Hansel and Gretel, who make this story Poor little puppies Especially poor puppies who will apparently be stuck with the names Hansel and Gretel Have fun in middle school, boys Audio Paul Morey narrates this story and he s pretty good as well I ve listened to his narrations of Dance with the Devil and Dance in the Dark about 150 times Let s just say I like them.However, he or someone, somewhere made the decision to give MC Skylar a Southern accent and everyone else in the story a General American accent I kept getting distracted trying to think of a logical reason Skylar s accent wouldn t reflect his parent s is it because he was adopted But he lived as a snake until he was adopted, soI guess in Derr s Lost Shifters world all snakes sound like extras from Designing Women That s kind of awesome

    This is a cute story about a snake shifter finding some lost shifter wolf puppies on his territory He calls the only wolf he knows to help him get to the bottom of the mystery I love the puppies bonding with Skylar, the snake, and how unique Skylar is as a shifter Brady, the wolf, had some history with Skylar so it was nice to see that resolved I found the storyline a bit convoluted especially for such a short piece and while things worked out in the end the build up didn t work for me as mu This is a cute story about a snake shifter finding some lost shifter wolf puppies on his territory He calls the only wolf he knows to help him get to the bottom of the mystery I love the puppies bonding with Skylar, the snake, and how unique Skylar is as a shifter Brady, the wolf, had some history with Skylar so it was nice to see that resolved I found the storyline a bit convoluted especially for such a short piece and while things worked out in the end the build up didn t work for me as much as I would have liked Also, there was one typo that threw me out near the beginning Tugging a toboggan down over his head, smooshing his poor curls and guaranteeing they d look stupid later, he sat down to lace on heavy, fur lined boots.Tuque is the word that should be used here, not toboggan Still this was cute and the puppies very sweet I liked the MC s and if the story didn t have the shifter politics my rating would have been higher

    A wonderful little read I would certainly love to see Skylar and Brady a few months down the road To watch them both grow as a couple and as a family.The puppies of course stole the show, I really want to watch them grow up.Although a short, I was happy to see this was all story and not over run with sex scenes like so many other shorts At the risk of repeating myself, would really love this to be turned into a mini series I think I needsnake shifter stories, especially if they involve A wonderful little read I would certainly love to see Skylar and Brady a few months down the road To watch them both grow as a couple and as a family.The puppies of course stole the show, I really want to watch them grow up.Although a short, I was happy to see this was all story and not over run with sex scenes like so many other shorts At the risk of repeating myself, would really love this to be turned into a mini series I think I needsnake shifter stories, especially if they involve adopted interspecies lol

    I m a fan of Ms Derr s stories, she has a way of making me care about the characters and the stories are usually very caste and cute I also like unusual shifter stories and the only other snake shifter story I read Snakeskin Boots I enjoyed.The world is interesting and we get a feel for the politics going on between the different fractions and of course the two young pups Skyler finds are just as much a pawn in this game as he is.Skyler calls the wolf shifter he has liked and admired since coll I m a fan of Ms Derr s stories, she has a way of making me care about the characters and the stories are usually very caste and cute I also like unusual shifter stories and the only other snake shifter story I read Snakeskin Boots I enjoyed.The world is interesting and we get a feel for the politics going on between the different fractions and of course the two young pups Skyler finds are just as much a pawn in this game as he is.Skyler calls the wolf shifter he has liked and admired since college for help and things go from there.I didn t quite get why in all the years of college and then the following Brady didn t make a move or try and get to know Sky, here two weeks after the call they are almost to the point of moving in together and raising children but up until that call Sky thought Brady hated him I think I wanted to seeof their attraction to each other and see why they didn t get together at school, but it was still a cute short story

    3.5 starsIt s nice story, but somehow I didn t get as much sexual tension from the MCs Given their predicament, I d expect to see .I like the story It reminds me that activists regardless which side they are on sometimes hurt their own cause with their actions.The cover, that shows Hansel and Gretel, is so cute although at that time they re probably afraid being left alone in the forest at 3 AM Hey, to think about it, the pond looks like where Harry Potter found the Gryfendor sword
