When a small creature has an unfortunate run-in with his car, Deacon Hearst wonders what in the world hit his windshield. A bird? A butterfly? No, that would make Deacon’s crazy life too simple. It is a fairy—or rather a Sidhe—with a gaze the color of the moon and thus eloquently named Mooneyes. The little creature’s wing is broken, and it’s shivering in the rain, and well… Deacon has a heart, after all.
While nursing Moon back to health, Deacon discovers Moon’s beauty is more than skin deep. Though they’re very different, especially in size, they’re alike in their loneliness, their need for affection. Despite the weirdness of the situation, Deacon finds himself falling for his not-quite victim.
Deacon thinks it’s a hopeless—gah!—love, but what if it isn’t? Moon might just have a few secrets of his own, secrets that could change everything in an instant and weave a different path for them both.
Splat! Is a magical tale where the fae world and the human world literally collide. It was an easy and quick read that I enjoyed.
Although the villains are the clichéd parents who know what’s best for their children, despite dismissing their children’s feelings entirely, the feelings between Moon and Deacon are sweet and give them the strength they need. The sex was hot and the pacing good. In the end I felt bad for Moon’s brother Star.
I recommend this book for anyone who likes a little magic with their stories, some steamy sex and doesn’t mind overbearing parents.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
