Blurb: Noel is a lonely librarian who spends most of his time working, surfing dating websites to no avail, and hanging out with the cat who shows up on his balcony every night. When he meets Mike, he’s finally found a man who holds his interest. But it soon becomes clear that there’s more to the bird-chasing businessman than what’s on the surface.
This was a totally sweet story! I loved that Noel was a lonely librarian who had such a sassy cat. The relationship between Noel and Buddy was so adorable. I loved seeing Noel have such conversations with Buddy. It was completely endearing (and I admit, I’m guilty of doing that with my cat and dog as well!) and I loved the relationship between them. I loved Buddy the cat but since the story has a lot of Buddy in it, I found there wasn’t enough of Mike in the story for me to really get into that part of the story.
As it was, I liked this story but I felt more of a connection between Noel and Buddy than I did between Noel and Mike, which was a bit of a let down for me. The story was just too short to really develop a relationship between Noel and Mike which hindered the story for me.
In the end, I still enjoyed the story. It’s a very cute and sweet story about a lonely librarian who meets a guy who’s way more than he appears. I really hope the author considers expanding this story because I would love to really get deeper into the connection between Noel and Mike. Definitely give this one a go if you’re looking for something short and sweet!
Overall Impression: It was good
