This was SO CUTE! The romance was so cute and sweet. I genuinely believed their feelings. I smiled at their adorable little emotional moments. The first kiss was perfect. There are other super sweet moments I want to talk about, but that would ruin them for anyone who hasn’t read the book yet so… *SPOILER* When Kel told Ragnar he was beautiful in his walrus form, that was so touching. When Ragnar saw the title of the art—gahhhh that one made me tear up. *END SPOILER*
I loved the cryptid angle too. How Ragnar became a local legend (though people referred to him as a selkie and didn’t know it was him), and how he actually went with it and had fun with it. You also don’t see a lot of books about walrus shifters.
The lighthouse setting was lovely. (I read one book set in a lighthouse, and suddenly I’m interested in every book I find that takes place in a lighthouse and downloading lighthouse lots for The Sims 3, but I digress.)
Overall, just a very cute m/m grumpy/sunshine romance with some adorable moments that gave me the smiley, teary-eyed (in a good way) feels!
Anyone who likes super cute m/m paranormal romance, uncommon shifters (a walrus), secluded lighthouse settings, uncomplicated stories, and grumpy/sunshine pairings.
