About the Author
C.S. Poe is an author of gay mystery and romance. She believes that happily ever after is an attainable goal for any character, given enough elbow grease and legwork is provided.
C.S. lives in New York City, but has called a host of different locations home in the past, most recently being Ibaraki, Japan. She regrets no longer having easy access to limited edition candy, capsule toy machines, and clean trains, but over ten years in New York has proved to her there is no place quite like it.
She has an affinity for all things cute and colorful. C.S. is an avid fan of coffee, reading, and cats, in no particular order. She’s rescued three cats, including one found in a drain pipe in Japan who flew back to the States with her. Zak, Milo, and Kasper do their best on a daily basis to sidetrack her from work. 
C.S. Poe can be followed on her website,, which also has links to her Goodreads and social media pages. She can also be followed via her e-mail newsletter on the website.

Theodore Reinhart is a young man looking for love. In San Diego. At a convention. For penguin shifters. WaddleCon is the go-to event of the year when looking for your life partner, but Theodore isn’t comfortable with the game they’ve turned dating into, nor does the convention provide for the gay community. A mistake in speed dating table assignments puts Theodore in front of Wesley O’Neill, a handsome and confident model who lets it slip that he’s definitely noticed the spark of attraction between them.


A perfect date ends prematurely when Theodore finds an abandoned egg in a bathroom trash can. Unable to leave it behind, Theodore and Wesley play a mad game of cat and mouse across the resort trying to keep it safe, all while growing closer to one another. Wesley may be the forever partner Theodore came looking for, but their relationship won’t work if they don’t make room for a little addition to the family.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2016 Daily Dose package "A Walk on the Wild Side."

Too cute!
(Updated: June 14, 2016)
Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book.

Theodore is in San Diego, looking for love, at a penguin shifter convention. Said convention doesn't cater for Theodore though, but he gets roped into speed dating and ends up in front of Wesley, who is much more to Theodore tastes than the ladies! An egg is found in the bathroom bin, a chase ensues across the resort, rules are broken and Theodore finally gets his man.

I can't say this any other way except, too stinking cute!! 

It really is a delightful little read, about half hour's reading time for me. I've never read a penguin shifter book before, and this really was fabulous!

Its only short, 38 pages according to Amazon, and is only told from Theodore's POV, but it packs quite a bit in those few pages. I wanted to hear from Wesley, of course I did, but it really didn't affect my reading experience by not hearing from him. I'm just greedy and I always want more.

If you need a book to introduce you into the shifter world, or a book to introduce you to male/male romance, or a book to introduce you to C.S. Poe(as it was for me, and I would like to read a longer book now!) this book will be for you. 

A quick, easy read, not complicated, or taxing. Cute, too stinking cute is my first and final thought on this book!

4 stars
