Just Ridley


Publisher’s Synopsis:
Ridley Scott
I’m a genuinely happy person, regardless of the fact that both of my parents are dead, I’m a college dropout, I work at a diner as a cook in Purdy, Nebraska and I’m a tall, lanky virgin, gay man with more freckles than not, bright red hair, and a creepy obsession with a gorgeous god of a man who always catches me stealing glances of him and doing awkward things, such as nearly killing myself with a mop bucket or frying pan. When my car breaks down not far rom said gorgeous, god’s house, I learn that Flynn is my best friend’s alpha and there is more to my obsession than my ridiculous habit of accidental suicide attempts. We’re connected.

Flynn Becker
I’ve been watching my mate for months and waiting for the perfect time to finally claim him. When he comes sputtering to a stop not far from the leap house where I’m the alpha of a large leap of leopards, I’m both excited to finally have him close and worried about how to explain our world. When I find out he already knows about shifters and his best friend is a member of my leap, I feel like this mating just got easier. But fighting both, members of my own kind, and my precious mate’s insecurities, might be too much for even a chosen bond. I have to find a way to protect my mate from a crazed she-leopard and prove to him that he could never be, JUST Ridley.

Warning: Mpreg elements!

Also, my books have little to no angst, and lots and lots of fluff! They are better read in order, because I kind of write them like a continuation of a story, and I don’t like to repeat explanations over and over if I can help it. No cheating, because that makes my heart hurt, and I try to avoid things that make me sad like I SHOULD be avoiding carbs. Sorry, I just don’t want anyone being disappointed if they like the angst filled heart-rippers. These read more like a romantic comedy than a romantic drama.

Point of view:
3rd person.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
Exactly as the author describes. Light, fluffy, low angst, novella length MM shifter. About an hour to read. Each story runs into the next, so must be read in order. Shifter. Fated mates. The series says it’s mpreg – and there’s talk of that ability, but storyline is only over a few days so no pregnancy/birth occurs.

Just Ridley establishes the pack & the Alpha, Flynn who falls for the adorably awkward, Ridley. For such a short book – a lot of time was spent on Ridley repeatedly not understanding that he was Flynn’s mate. Everyone calls Ridley Alpha-mate, multiple times, including Flynn, but he still thinks they’re taking about someone else.

It’s a quick & easy read. However, I don’t really feel invested in continuing the series.

Note: It says it was re-edited at some point. It’s surprising that there’s so many typos/spelling issues. I wouldn’t consider it egregious, but definitely frequent enough to disrupt the flow of reading.
