Socks for an Otter by Posy Roberts

"What a lovely and eye-opening book to read at this time of year." Angel in Socks for an Otter.

From the blurb:

He fell from his ivory tower and landed in the gutter.

But Sebastian would rather be homeless and hungry than clueless.

On his way to the food pantry, a guy on his cell phone runs into him and triggers his prickly side. As a sign of goodwill, Louis offers to cook for him. But all Sebastian sees is the privilege he used to have.

This isn’t a fairytale. Louis isn’t Prince Charming. And Sebastian can make it on his own.

But it’s been days since he’s had a hot meal. And a blizzard is coming.

Will Sebastian’s pride be his appetizer?

Socks for an Otter is a heartwarming riches-to-rags MM romance brewed with hurt, comfort, comedy, a second chance at love, age gap, and men from different worlds who will give you all the feels.

Angel's Review:

I have never read anything by Posy Roberts before. They are a new-to-me author. I'm really glad I got this story when I did cause it was the perfect heartwarming story to read during this time of year. When everyone is warm in their houses and has their own vehicles and a vast amount of money in their bank account, the people who don't stop and realize just how lucky they are. How grateful they should be. 

Even if you do realize you should be thankful for what you have, this book definitely gives you another perspective. Something else to think about at this time of year. Louis and Bash were so well written and had such great chemistry together. It was instant love, but there was definitely a connection as soon as these two ran into each other. Literally. 

Louis was just trying to pay it forward, yes he was still na├»ve to certain things, and he didn't know how bad the homeless had it, not completely, but he still tried to help. Anyway, he could, he tried. 

I loved his character and his nickname for Bash? So cute! The author definitely took their time to research what it's like for people who don't have a house, access to food, healthcare, and jobs. Who can't gain access to opportunities because unfortunately, some people don't see the homeless as actual people. I think the writing was so well done; the plot was great, and there were elements of a slow burn. These two took their time. They listened and heard each other, and most importantly, they were there for each other. 

I highly recommend reading this!
