Beo has a struggle all his own. It’s not a past that haunts him but his present. He’s ready to throw in the towel to life when he meets Colt. Colt is brash, angry at the world, and arrogant, but there’s something in him that only Beo can see, sense, and touch.

Can opposites truly attract and stay?

Stray Pup by Elliot Cooper

Stray Pup by Elliot Cooper

*Written-not filmed review*

Stray Pup is approx 10,000 words; an incredibly short story. ¬†Yet, it’s also paranormally delicious. ¬†(Because it’s so short I’ve been able to read it multiple times and love it more with each read.)

 

Shifters are known to the world. ¬†They’re not in hiding, but they’re not 100% accepted by the populous either. ¬†There are humans though that seem to find themselves with a were fetish and that’s how Jamie Finch finds himself in his current predicament.

Jamie’s currently in the middle of his transition from human to were. ¬†He’s decided to leave the human world behind him and go in search of a pack. ¬†Once he arrives at his destination to begin “pack hunting” he’s assaulted by a smell. ¬†Oh, the smell. ¬†It’s everything to Jamie. ¬†After being escorted to the correct pack he can’t get past the smell.

 

Elliot does a wonderful job of creating this world, having us immediately placed in this world, and attaching ourselves to Jamie and his adventure.  From the moment Jamie arrives at his new pack and finds the source of the incredible smell Elliot has us getting sexually frustrated along side Jamie until we can find release, and what a release it is.
