Short Story Review - Candi's Buck by Jane Wakely @JaneWakely (Chestnut Rock Shifters #4)

Candi’s Buck
Chestnut Rock Shifters #4
by Jane Wakely

Goodreads blurb:  Candi Smith spends her days working her dream job as head chef in her brother’s new restaurant. The café’s early operating hours allow her a daily walk in the forest and time to visit her special place, the alcove. When a buck starts to visit the alcove as well, she learns there’s one thing better than being alone in the forest. Candi’s feelings for the buck are confusing but they become more unusual when she meets Aiden.

Aiden Montgomery is a zoology professor and a deer shifter. His job is rewarding, but a run through the forest in his buck form is the perfect way to end to his day. Forty is fast approaching and his age, combined with his scarred leg, are reminders he isn’t worthy of a mate. He keeps the loneliness at bay by drowning in projects for work, seemingly content with his life. When he sees Candi for the first time, and recognizes her as his mate, her youth and perfection persuade him he doesn’t deserve her.

Aiden is driven to spend small amounts of time with Candi, convinced his intense feelings will be easier to control if he gets her out of his system. The plan backfires and leaves the pair unhappy, despite the love they share. He knows they can’t be together, but Aiden feels he owes Candi the truth about their connection. Candi’s not as naïve as she seems and she has her own plans for her buck.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!

The cover is awesome, serene, and beautiful :)  I think this one is perfect :)

I think this story is the best yet :)  This one had quite a bit more action and again this is a short story about 30 or so pages, so keep that in mind when deciding if this story is for you :) I love these short shifter fairy tales with happily ever afters especially when the characters have tragic back stories and deserve to be happy.  In short stories, I won’t give you any more details because the blurb lays it out for you very well and anything further will ruin the journey into Chestnut Rock for you :)

Just like the rest of the series, Jane Wakely’s style is easy to read, and you get pulled right into the characters’ lives.  I have really enjoyed all of the series so far.  Of course shifter stories are my favorite :)

I recommend this series to those already familiar with Jane’s work and those shifter fanatics who enjoy short stories.  I’m off to read the next book!!
