ARC Review: Winter's Gift by Sean Michael

Winter's Gift
From the blurb:

Badly disfigured, Geoff lives alone in the woods with only his wolf as companion. It’s a solitary life, but one he is comfortable with. When he discovers a fairy with an injured wing at the beginning of winter, his whole ordered world is turned upside down. But will Mauve be horrified by his rescuer’s visage? Or can the fairy look beyond the scars and see into Geoff’s heart?

Heather's rating:

Sean Michael does fantasy. And you get exactly what you'd expect.

This novella actually started off sort of beautifully. It had a dreamy, fairytale vibe and I was really, really digging it. A lonely scarred man finds an injured fairy and nurtures him back to health. It had the makings of a very good story. Then the sex started...

For a story of only 69 pages, this had a TON of sex scenes. I'm talking page after page of blow jobs and fingering, all while whispering sweet nothings into each other's ears. Don't get me wrong, I love a good sex scene, but it got to be a bit ridiculous.

Because of all the sex, the plot got to be VERY thin. Thin like paper. I wanted more substance, though I still found this to be enjoyable and compulsively readable. It was sugary fantasy-lite with a dose of hotness. I found myself not really caring that the characters weren't really developed or that they never left their little cave. I enjoyed this story for what it was: Purple man-fae porn!
