5 What a spicy little story This one stayed true to the prompt and image I liked the Feudal Japan setting and being able to see the world from a dog s perspective Aiko is a shifter, but he s puppy than man Both Aiko and Shin, the lonely vampire to whom we re introduced in the prologue, are well sketched characters, considering the story is fewer than 6,000 words I wish Aiko had spent time in his human form I m not much into puppy play, but I was glad that the play in this story is very much about fun and caring, not humiliation.
This is a quick read well written, original, and sweet, with some light Master sub overtones.
A lovely little story That s canine for Sweet Puppy Play Excitement Going to try to keep this short and sweet like Shintarou s Way , wonderful prompt that fell into the right pair of hands Clever writing.
Light with a teeny tiny drop of angst, I finished with a smile on my face Dog shifter Aiko s kicked out of his pack for being gay and lives on his on the streets while shifted Shintarou, a lonely vampire noticed him, befriends him, gains his trust and gives him an offer Aiko can t refuse.
And the puppy play was awesomesauce if you re afraid of puppy play, this is a great intro into how awesome it can be in a light, sweet way And the setting is also lovely I really like the way this was set up, loved the beginning almost as much as reading the Master and pup s play My thanks to the author and the team behind this event.

Someone needs a puppy makes ridiculous kissing noises insert some super gushy baby talk AWWWWWWWW Akio is a dog shifter who s been expelled from his pack for being gay.
BOOOOOOO Look at those faces lip quiver Aiko has taken to staying in his dog form, living as a stray and subsisting on scraps Shin patiently coaxes him into a semblance of trust with an endgame in mind Every pup needs a loving master If the idea of puppy play squicks you, you ll be fine It s very light and fluffy with beautiful, evocative prose that draws you into the story and makes you root for these two protagonists It s sweet without being sappy It s sexy without being porny It pulls on your heartstrings especially with the hand feeding and cuddles swoons I wish it was longer Can t tell a lie I want that punishment scene like nobody s business Maybe a follow up Thanks to the author and her team for participating in the LOR event.

Cute This is super cute Aiko is a dog shifter who is homeless after being forced out of his pack for being gay He chooses to spend his time in his dog form to keep warm during the cold and hungry nights, but salvation comes from an unlikely source when a vampire stars seducing his dog with food each night Trust slowly starts to form and when given the opportunity to go home with the vampire, Shin, Aiko pounces on it.
This was just too frickin cute I loved the way Aiko maintained a playful personality when he was in his human form, and I loved each time the word Pup was uttered And the play on Puppy Play dies My complaint More puppy More More More More of Aiko and Shin together, and Shin because I would like to have gotten to know him better Still, very adorable, completely entertaining and a great, light read.
