Kyle Slidell’s favorite holiday is Christmas. So when he surprises his werewolf lover, Tobias Rogan with Christmas lights and a tree, he finds himself torn between anger and fear for Tobias doesn’t react like Kyle thought he would. Instead Tobias disappears and when Kyle finally finds him on Christmas Eve, it is up to Kyle to show Tobias that he can make new memories of the holiday…with his mate, Kyle.

Karenna Colcroft’s Real Werewolves Don’t Eat Meat series is a riot. There is humor, mystery, action and lots of man lovin’. In this quick short novella set between book 1, Salad on the Side and Book 2, Veggie Burgers to Go, we find Kyle and Tobias having their first Christmas together. Too bad no one bothered to tell Kyle that Tobias hates the holidays with a passion. I have to stress you should read book one first in order to get what some past events Kyle and Tobias mention in this story are about.  The story flows smoothly and there is humor, passion and fear. This is a story that will leave you breathless until the very end.

Meet Kyle and Tobias. Kyle is now a werewolf but a vegan one at that which is as anti-werewolf as you can get. What werewolf doesn’t eat meat? The relationship between Kyle and Tobias is passionate, erotic and at times very tender. There are ups and downs in any relationship but this is an author who captures Kyle’s confusion, Tobias’s pain and more perfectly. The characters are very well rounded and though there are only a few secondary characters you may have met in book one; this is all about Tobias and Kyle, which is what I loved the most about this story. No one trying to kill them or cause pain to the pack. It is about two people trying to figure out how to heal painful memories and maybe make some new ones in the process. It was about Kyle trying to show Tobias that he is fully committed to his mate, Tobias and that Tobias can and should put away the darkness that has plagued him for years to let him find happiness and joy in the holidays again.

TOFURKEY AND YAMS is a fun, sweet story that is best read in order of the series. Now I cannot wait to see what happens next for Tobias and Kyle as well as their pack. I look forward to seeing what this author will do next for these wonderful well written characters and I highly recommend the series to anyone looking for humor, sizzling passion and loads of action/adventure in their books.
