Terry Poole’s “Rudy” is a sweet paranormal m/m romance. You get a romantic relationship that starts almost from the moment Rudy meets Clay. However there will be a lots that will go on from Rudy and his crazy side of the family. There seems to be a lot of hatred due to Rudy's father. Especially from his older half-brother Donny and his mother. “Rudy” was quite a delightful read. We see Clay enter the picture. He was truly there for Rudy definitely being his protector. Ah, so sweet.
I liked how Poole brought in the shifting reindeer and all the cast of characters. Readers get Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, Clay… Rudolph's love interest, Herman... Hermy elf dentist, Donny... Donner, Louis... Dasher, Daniel... Dancer, Juno... Cupid, Halley... Comet, Rai... Blitzen, Tripper... Prancer, Dixon... Vixen and list goes on. "Rudy" is a wonderful new new take on Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.
This is one of those reads that you will have you will have to pick up for its fun connection to a childhood tale. I don't want to spoil it by telling you too much. Once you start, “Rudy” will hold your attention.
Readers will have so many questions and Poole answers them. Will Clay be able to save Rudy's life? Do they end up in an HEA? Will the toy factory be saved? Will Rudy's horrible family members get what they deserve? They have caused him so much harm.
Hated by his family for being a living reminder of his father's infidelity, Rudy never expected that a blind date mix-up would change his life in this modern retelling of Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer.
Clay, an engineer fresh out of the military, is the answer to Rudy's dreams, becoming Rudy's co-worker, protector, and lover all rolled into one gorgeous package.
Not only do they mesh well together to bring Rudy's vision to life, neither can deny the overwhelming attraction that sizzles between them. An attraction that almost ends before it can begin because of a misunderstanding that leads to Clay being in jail for assault.
Filled with hate, Donny, Rudy's older half-brother, tries to destroy him and stop Rudy from saving his grandfather's toy factory.
Only Clay can save Rudy's life and the toy factory, if he's not too late.
