Cutie and the Beast by E.J. Russell


From Riptide:

Temp worker David Evans has been dreaming of Dr. Alun Kendrick ever since that one transcription job for him, because holy cats, that voiceSwoon. So when his agency offers him a position as Dr. Kendrick’s temporary office manager, David neglects to mention that he’s been permanently banished from offices. Because, forgiveness? Way easier than permission.
Alun Kendrick, former Queen’s Champion of Faerie’s Seelie Court, takes his job as a psychologist for Portland’s supernatural population extremely seriously. Secrecy is paramount: no non-supe can know of their existence. So when a gods-bedamned human shows up to replace his office manager, he intends to send the man packing. It shouldn’t be difficult—in the two hundred years since he was cursed, no human has ever failed to run screaming from his hideous face.
But cheeky David isn’t intimidated, and despite himself, Alun is drawn to David in a way that can only spell disaster: when fae consort with humans, it never ends well. And if the human has secrets of his own? The disaster might be greater than either of them could ever imagine.

This book is hella cute.  It's sweet and lovely.  Perfect for your end of summer enjoyment.  

Incidents, riots, and other mysterious happenings follow David, so he's been banned from working in offices and does medical transcription from home to support himself and the Aunt who took him in after his parents died.  When he gets the call to work with Alun, he's thrilled.  Alun is not so thrilled to have David working for him, but David is stubborn to the core.  Which is exactly what makes this story so fun - Alun doesn't really stand a chance.  😉

Cutie is a fun take the paranormal, with fairies, druids, shifters, and dragons, living unknown to the humans.  It's a fascinating world that I can't wait to explore further!  Book 2, The Druid Next Door releases August 21, 2017.  Check out the series info here.
