Rating: 3.5 of 5 Stars
Welcome to the avian shifter world of Undercover Peckers. Where love is instant the moment you find your mate. Where there’s only one true pecker for every man. Where the sex is so hot it will singe your tail feathers. Where bird-watching is both a recreation and a preoccupation—that usually leads to feathers flying.
Simon Spoonwell—intrepid bird store owner and history geek—knows avian shifters exist. With so much myth and lore, there must be a touch of reality. But he doesn’t expect his proof to come in the form of hottie cop and blue jay shifter Jay Azure. It’s an innocuous ticket for jaywalking that brings them together, but an inescapable attraction, a love of awful puns, and a shared need to protect the vulnerable will make them true mates.
Jay Walking is the first novella in the Pecker series by Jaques N. Hoff. It is a cute tale of suspended reality where an arrogant loner blue-jay shifter meets his mate in an equally lonely bird shop owner. The series premise is very cute and promising. The story was light hearted and humorous. There are tons of bird metaphors, almost too many, and even a really interesting mating dance. There is very little plot or character development, but this novella did a good job setting up the series. I would not mind reading more when I am in the mood for something quick and easy to read.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
