Review: A chipmunk shifter and a wolf shifter… Hmmm!
Alright, I admit it; after being totally in love with Jackie Nacht’s wolves (the ones I’ve met at Moon Compound series) I’d blindly go and read any story of hers, but chipmunk and wolf? Yeah, I was very, very cautious while opening and starting reading this one. And I got surprised.
Nothing similar to her other work whatsoever, Peanut Butter and Jelly for Two is a quick, fun and funny read that distinguishes itself from other similar reads as well. There is the lack of the ever-present fated mates. There is a lack of the ever-present magic that wants shifters magically healing and/or not catching diseases. Frankly, the only thing making this a paranormal read is the fact that characters shift.
The story has also an original take here as well. A dentist! A dentist set for shifters on forms, human and animal, with an entire crew that brings in clients from all over the place. Brilliant!
Now how about a dash of humor?
How about herbivores sticking their heads inside a carnivore’s mouth in order to flush/cleanse their teeth…? Do you see it?
How about having a vegetarian shifter trying to cook roast when the oven in his place has never, ever been used…?
How about a chipmunk falling for a wolf, and while the human part is quite all right with that, the animal inside wants to run the heck out of sight and well save yourself from the fangs…
It was funny, and it was enticing, and it was sexy as well. I must say it never occurred to me how a chipmunk in heat would act… (Yeah, I had images flowing in my head. Yeah! They were definitely weird images too) Overall, this was one fun read and a story I wouldn’t mind seeing more. After all, there is a certain couple there that needs to get their act together, Dallas has got to give some love around and stop being a big, fat, grumpy bear.
As for this book, if you do love shifters and appreciate humor, then I’d definitely recommend this little story. It’s bound to put a smile on your face.
