Sparkles and Strawberries

Title: Sparkles and Strawberries
Katica Locke
Publisher: Shadowfire Press
Publisher URL:

Genre: {M/M} Fantasy, Paranormal
Rating: 4.5 Nymphs
Literary Nymph Reviewer: Scandalous Minx

Zarik’s not proud of his actions, but they are for a good reason.  When Ezarali approaches him seeking help to make Nathan’s Valentine’s Day special, Zarik seizes the opportunity to ask for a favor of his own.  While it might not be the only way to accomplish his goal, it’s the easiest way.  When Nathan discovers what he’s done, will it be the final straw or can the three roommates still coexist after this betrayal? 

After being introduced to Nathan, Zarik and Ezarali in Faerie Christmas, I was hoping to see the three young men again.    Sparkles and Strawberries takes place a few short months later.  Thanks to Nathan’s loving care, Ezarali has grown and isn’t the shadow of a faerie we first met.  There are still some things that Nathan will have to get used to, but the couple seems to be taking strides in the right direction.  Zarik is still… Zarik.  He is still headstrong, determined and unbending.  I’m hoping in the future and with the right source of love, we will finally see him shed his armor. 

The story has some action and suspense, giving a nice balance to the steamy erotic moments.  I found Sparkles and Strawberries to be an enjoyable read and hope there is more to come for these three dynamic characters.
