Tentacles and Tea by Toby Wise

If you enjoy tea, tentacles, reading about gorgeous plants, and someone being part fae, this is the book for you!

From the blurb for Tentacles and Tea:

Why is dating with eight extra appendages so hard?

Jonas is an author in need of inspiration. After months of writer's block, the octopus shifter finds himself being talked into a vacation to blow the cobwebs away. Stumbling onto a perfect little tea shop feels like fate, especially when he meets York, the supernatural owner who's better than any protagonist Jonas could create.

York hasn't had the best luck when it comes to relationships. After constantly being told he's too much, he's not expecting to find the love he dreams about. But York hasn't counted on fate delivering an author straight to his doorstep, one who could give York the chance to write his own happily ever after.

But with pheromones at play, things are more complicated than they seem. Can Jonas and York puzzle their way through to find the love they deserve?

Tentacles and Tea is a novella full of tentacles, eggpreg, and a variety of teas, with a guaranteed happily ever after.

This book was released in the Tentacle Tales Anthology and is now being released on its own.

Angel's Review:

This book was released in the Tentacle Tales Anthology and is now being released on its own!  Toby Wise does it again with yet another octopus shifter romance. I love not only York's character but also his uniqueness and his Tea shop. I loved that the primary place that this book took place in was York's tea shop. I just think that setting was so unique and I thought the name was really clever.

The background was fantastic! The characters were great as well, they all played off of one another and all had a purpose for being in the story. I would say this is a bit of a slow burn with a fated mates aspect along with mpreg.

We got to see characters from Toby's other octopus shifter book, A Sucker For You. Which I highly recommend you read!!

Jacquie's Review:

Tentacles and Tea is set in the same world as Sucker For You, and those characters make a cameo appearance here.

This was previously released in an anthology, so I had read it before, but I think it was better second time around for me. With having it without the other stories I was able to focus on the story being told.

York and Jonas were adorable together, talking around their supernatural status. Their date was so sweet. I really enjoy the way Toby Wise writes interactions between the characters.

It's low angst with some steam and egg depositing.
