Nuts About You by Kate Lowell was an adorable book about a kind of shifter not usually seen in books. This is the first book in her Nutty Romances series.
At under twelve thousand words, this story definitely qualifies as short and sweet. Nathan is so cute as a squirrel shifter even if his spying on Vince may be considered a bit stalkerish. Vince takes it all in stride though, when he realizes the pesky squirrel that’s been eating all his bird seed is the hottie from the Bulk Mart.
You only get a taste of the shifter world that Nathan comes from in this first installment but I have a feeling we’ll find out more as the series continues. Specifically, I’m really interested in finding out how much the different species of shifters associate and how many there are in the community. The world building that goes into paranormal books always fascinates me.
I loved the curses that Nathan used, like “hickory nut” or “oh my walnuts.” Such a small detail but one that really adds depth to this short story.
Nuts About You was a quick and satisfying read and I’ll definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for the next story in this series. It offered a new type of shifter, much different than the usual predator types, and I very much enjoyed it.
