Hard-working assistant bank manager Ellie is having a hard time getting over getting dumped by her cheating ex. After a particularly tough week, she visits her best friend Tippett at work, at a local carnival.

There, she plays a boardwalk game run by a mysterious and intriguing carnival barker and wins an adorable stuffed teddy bear. Later that night, the bear shifts into a tall, gorgeous ginger lover with the ability to make her forget everything except the passionate games he wants to play. Her teddy is the gift that keeps on giving!

Who knew an adorable stuffed bear could give you the best night of your life.

After a hectic and rough week in both her professional and personal life, Ellie visits her friend who works in the carnival. Little did she know that the cute and adorable teddy bear she won would give her what she craved.

This short story was passionate and sexy with a touch of shifters and magic. It had BDSM but a very, very light form of it that some readers will like. I liked Ellie. She was a hard-worker who needed a push to pursue what she wants in not only her personal life but her professional life as well.

The hero of this short story, this was an interesting twist on a paranormal. I’ll try to say this without spoiling it for other readers. I wanted to know more about the hero. Yes, there was some info that clued me into the hero but, I wanted to know more about this particular paranormal aspect of the whole story.

The premise caught my attention the storyline held it to the end. This book is perfect for any erotic lovers looking to unwind with a short and hot read.
