Fox Hollow #3.5
Publisher: Darkwind Press
Genre: Paranormal, Series
Raccoon-shifter Mico Foley drives a garbage truck in Fox Hollow, a job that keeps a roof over his head while he pursues his true passion—creating art with found objects. He fears he might never find a mate—until he falls hard for the sexy new baker in town. But will a hottie like that fall for a guy like him?
Possum-shifter Jack Hargrave is the new night baker at Bare Necessities Cafe, his big opportunity to do what he loves most—creating irresistible confections. He didn’t move to Fox Hollow to find a mate, but the handsome truck driver who empties the cafe’s dumpster has stolen his heart. Could a hunk like him still care when he finds out Jack’s secret?
Trash and Treasure is an MM shifter romance with a flirty baker, a brooding artist, hurt/comfort, unusual art, a fancy tree house, found family, fated mates and seductive donuts.
While this is set in my Fox Hollow world, it can be read as a standalone.
I’m already a huge fan of this author and this series. I loved Jack and Mico and their sweet with a dash of angst story. Bonus points for the cameos and mentions of other characters in this shared world, and the Marvel reference.
I loved that Jack and Mico were possum and raccoon shifters, and how there were hints of their shifter sides in their personality quirks. I enjoy the banter between the human and shifter sides in this series. I thought the way they react to threats because of what they are was very clever, and I liked that there are consequences for shifting too quickly.
I enjoyed the touch of angst in the story, and in their pasts. It felt realistic and added an edge to the setting that there are threats in the surrounding area, as well as their wider world. As an aside, Jack’s donuts sound amazing.
5 out of 5 stars.
