Review: Bee Stung
Bee Stung by Theolyn Boese
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A queen bee who entices males to lick her honey pot and pollinate her is the saviour of a magical island. Ms. Boese is a new-to-me author who is a must read. Her storytelling is completely captivating. I am spellbound by her characters and the world she invites us in.
Rienne is a shifter from a family of unusual shifters. Outsiders do not know exactly what kind of animals they are because it isn't hereditary. They can be any type of animal or insect. Rienne is hiding from the world as her self-confidence has been shattered by an abusive, jealous and selfish ex-lover. Trying to recover, she flees to her cousin, Cass, who lives on an island. The reception Rienne receives from the residents is colder than a winter day. Fortunately, a couple of males decided to welcome her in a very friendly way.
This story is magical. There is no other word for it. I loved each of the characters in this book. They all had their own stories and Ms. Boese does a great job of giving enough highlights to weave a dark picture of hopelessness. Light shines when Rienne enters this slowly dying community. All the little hints dropped here and there culminate into a wonderful happy ending.
I want to gush about all the little nuances I loved in this story, but I don't want to give any spoilers. The different magical creatures in this story are adorable. The shifters in this story are hilarious. The men are dreamy and the women are horny.
Ms. Boese does a great job of infusing humour and sex into this book. What more can a woman want? Great sex with multiple men is a good start. And a man who can make a woman laugh is to be treasured. The men who surround Rienne boost her self-worth and it's a delight to watch.
The sex in this story is smoking hawt. Don't be surprised if it causes a bit of panty moistening goodness. This secret garden romance is highly recommended to those who love happily ever afters.
