David is used to being alone. But, one day, he was unexpectedly discovered by a mystical being. Life would never be the same again for David...
"I wish I had a Daddy who hugged me real tight so I never needed to hug a pillow...
I'm not saying that I feel lonely because ...well...I'm used to being alone, but if there was a play-daddy available who would just hug me, I'd do anything to feel the warmth of his touch, both inside and out.
*Sigh* Okay.
I'm touch starved."
*An inexperienced mystical gay Daddy Dom fairytale romance with a very lonely little. Emotional with plenty of feel-good moments and a guaranteed HEA.*

David is a young man who grew up believing his parents loved him unconditionally but like so many others he fell victim to the three-letter word GAY. As soon as he spoke that word his parents’ unconditional love went out the door along with David. Alone, homeless and hungry it was thanks to the help of an LGBT group that saved him. He now has a place to call home, a job and dreams of being a corsetier.

David is a loner and is thankful he didn’t reveal to his parents that he is a “little” they may have physically hurt him if they knew. David longs to have a daddy but is convinced that no one would ever want him, so he is both the little and the daddy. He loves his toys, loves wearing corsets and loves himself because no one else will. He is skinny, not good looking and short so no “daddy” would want him as their little. What David doesn’t know is that there is a mystical creature that finds him perfect.

Faine is the guardian of the woods and has been since time began. When he hears a screeching noise in the woods he investigates and discovers the noise is coming out of the mouth of a young human singing along to the music on his phone. Faine knows that he is looking at his soulmate but with horns, hoofs and covered in hair how is he going to get this young man to want him. What happens between Faine and David is not something I will reveal in this review.

My reason for giving this book four stars has nothing to do with the sex or David’s need for a daddy it has everything to do with caring about this young man who through no fault of his own had sexual desires that were not considered the norm. He is different in a world where being different can be the cause of great pain both physical and mental. David loves his thrift shop purchases because they are “pre-loved” which shows what kind of man he is.
