Frannie is a library school student who also happens to be a low-powered fae. When she stops in at a pharmacy to get some Sudafed, Frannie crushes hard on the cashier who’s a shifter named Shirl, and she comes back every day until she musters the courage to ask Shirl out on a date.
A perfect date leads to a perfect night in bed, followed by a lot more of both. Now they just need to survive exams, a full moon, and some early relationship communication stuff.
Frannie and Shirl are SO cute together. It’s told in the first person from Frannie’s perspective, so we get more of her than Shirl, but because it’s only 50 pages long, we don’t get to know either of them particularly well (although what I saw, I liked a whole lot!). Their flirty banter is especially fabulous and had me smiling throughout.
The Writing Style
What’s your favourite candy? Think about it. Do you have it in your mind? Reading Spark & Change is like eating that candy. It’s sweet and satisfying and just a joy to consume. And because it’s short, you can devour it in a single sitting!
I didn’t have any.
If you’re looking for something fluffy to pass an hour or so and also happen to like supernormal romance, you’ll definitely want to pick this one up. It’s so cute and likeable that it’s well worth checking out.
Excerpt from Spark & Change by Kellum Jeffries
She led me into her room and I got a quick look around while she muttered, “Sorry, wasn’t expecting to bring you home,” and tossed shoes and clothes from the floor into the closet. She definitely had a more-is-more decorating style–postcards taped all over the walls, multicolored quilt, a ton of pillows. It was a friendly vibe.
There was a set of cuffs locked to the radiator pipe in the corner. Which was certainly intriguing, but could be purely practical—you never know with shifters, from what I’d heard they have wildly varying levels of control loss during their shifts.
I got my courage up while she was trying without much success to close the closet door and managed, “The cuffs, uh, shifting or sex?”
“Why not both?” she said, waggling her eyebrows, then ducked her head and said, “Nah, really, just sex. I’m a non-violent wolf. An aggressive facelicker, but that’s about as bad as it gets.”
She came over to me and put a hand on my cheek. “Also, uh, this is always awkward, but–
hereditary werewolf strain, not transmissible.”
“Oh, right, good,” I said, feeling dumb because I’d been having such a good time it hadn’t even occurred to me to wonder.
“The cuffs are for when I know people better, though,” she said. “Plus tonight I’m just feeling…smoochy, you?”
“I am so down with smoochy. I am utterly down with smoochy.”
