Everyone knows a proper troll must never leave his post. Arlo is thrilled to have his own bridge to guard, though it’s a lonely job. A troll should enjoy being alone, but Arlo has never been very good at being a troll. He longs for companionship, but guards that secret like he guards his bridge.
Toby, a cheerful wolf shifter, serves as a messenger between villages. When his route is suddenly blocked by a fearsome troll, he must charm his way across the bridge. Little does he know, he’s charming his way into Arlo’s heart as well. But Toby has his own secrets he dare not reveal.
As the season’s fly by and the holidays approach, their friendship blooms and begins to flourish into something more. But can Toby risk his heart for a troll bound so tight to duty? Will Arlo leave his bridge for love?
Thank you to NetGalley and NineStar Press for an eARC of this review.
I absolutely adored this book. It was so dang cute and wholesome! What can I say about this book? Alright, I will start with our main characters. Arlo is so sweet and adorable. I LOVED reading about an unconventional fantasy creature! Like give me more of that! On to Toby. Toby is so fun and full of energy and love. I mean, he was just such a sweet character.
In terms of Christmasy content this book doesn’t solely happen at Christmas, but it starts and ends at Christmas. I actually really liked that we followed the characters throughout the year and only got glimpses of their relationship growing and changing over the year and all the times they meet each other.
Honestly I could have read an entire series about these two characters. I would love to see more from their relationship and lives. It was just so dang wholesome and sweet. I adored this book and I think the only reason it wasn’t a 5 stars was because I wanted more from them.
