Nathan’s been crushing on one of his regular Bulk Mart customers for a while now. In his squirrel form, he sits on Vince’s bird feeders, munching on seeds and enjoying the eye candy. Until the day Vince catches him raiding the feeder…
The best part was coming next. Nathan took an absentminded bite of the sunflower seed in his paw and hung a little further out from the feeder to get a better view. Because now, the body wash was coming out. Vince’s hand stretched past Nathan’s field of vision, returning with what looked like the Natural Sea Sponge Vince had bought at Bulk Mart a month ago. He flicked open the cap on the almond-scented body wash and spread it on the sponge. Though Nathan couldn’t smell it through the window, he knew that scent. It drove him wild—he stopped to sniff it every time he walked down the aisle, and he even had a bottle on his bedside table. Not to use, just to smell every night as he lay in bed, wishing it was Vince’s hand on him instead of his own.
There it went, the sponge traveling over all the places where Nathan would like to run his tongue. Vince started on his neck, smooth up and down movements covering his skin with a rich lather. The bubbles slid down his body, clinging in a way that made Nathan irrationally jealous of them. The sponge followed the bubbles down, making circles over the sleek chest, then crisscrossing back and forth over the flat stomach and past his bellybutton, with its narrow trail of hair leading down to—OH MY WALNUTS!

Meet the author:
Kate Lowell lives on the east coast of Canada, in an old farm house that has way more personality than it has any right to. During the winter, she spends her time dreading snow, cursing at snow, shoveling snow, and scheming ways to shove it down the kids’ necks. During the summer, she prays not to have snow.
Kate likes to play in ALL the sandboxes. While her main genres are paranormal and contemporary suspense, she is also interested in science fiction, fantasy and–weirdly–romantic comedy. She’s willing to pay large amounts of money to anyone who can come up with plot-bunny repellent, which she will first use on herself, then sell to LA Witt for an exorbitant price to recoup her costs.

Where to find the author:
The cutest, funniest shifter short! Find out how a squirrel shifter, Nathan, gets himself into a predicament with the human, Vince.
Kate Lowell had me laughing with Nathan’s hilarious commentary and actions. In his squirrel form he has been spying on the human, Vince. A man he happened to meet at his job at Bulk Mart and discovered they live about a mile from each other. Nathan enjoys hanging out on Vince’s bird feeders, eating the nuts and watching Vince. Vince looking all hot and manly on the couch, Vince all lathered up in a wet dream state in the shower. Nathan cannot stay away and that’s what gets him into trouble!
I enjoyed the banter between Vince and Nathan. How easily Vince accepted Nathan and wasn’t afraid to make all varieties of nut jokes. This story was just pure joy to read. The men were energetic and hot. Quirky yet sexy. The ending was perfect. There’s a second story chapter teaser at the end of Nuts About You. Can’t wait to read the full short!
RATING: BAD ASS NUTTY BOOTS!!
