About The Book

It wasn’t supposed to be REAL! Bigfoot doesn’t actually exist. Yetis, shifters, creatures of the night … none of those exist. Right? Right?

There’s nothing about perky — some might even say twinky — Oliver Hughes that would make a skeptic like Sensational News’ (Never Fake! We Swear!) reporter Wilson Banks think otherwise. But while pursuing soundbites for a tabloid story about Bigfoot, Wilson witnesses something he wasn’t meant to see.

In Wilson’s new reality, is there room for love with someone whose dreams are as big as his … er … feet?

This fun novella has a paranormal twist, a hint of mystery, and a flavorful dollop of romantic comedy. Mix it all together for a satisfying HEA!

The Review

Addison Albright’s novella romp into the Northern California redwood forests to find the legendary Bigfoot is an absolute delight. 

When tabloid reporter Wilson Banks, who works for Sensational News (Never Fake! We Swear!), gets assigned to write a Bigfoot story, he is intrigued, not so much about the gigantic beast itself, but more about a small town woman who accidentally steps into a heavy duty trap that kills her. The property owner says he was trying to trap Bigfoot, who, the owner claimed, was eating all the berries off his bushes. 

Wilson wants to know how a popular obsession causes such a gruesome death and causes a nice, neighborly fellow to end up in prison on the charge of involuntary manslaughter. Now that the guy’s back home, Wilson hopes to interview him as well as some of the other townsfolk. While he wants a lurid story, his editor really wants at best new Bigfoot pictures, at least a new photo of a footprint. Wilson makes no promises.

After arriving in town and getting a good night’s sleep at the local B&B, Wilson sets off for the farmer’s market where he meets and is attracted to Oliver Hughes, who introduces himself as “aka Bigfoot. I don’t know how you managed to track me down.” Oliver is the brother of the B&B’s manager and works as its handyman.

Both Wilson and Oliver are the kinds of gay romance heroes whom readers love to see fall in love. Their chemistry is explosive, and their life views mesh beautifully. Making the novella even more appealing is author Albright’s jaunty, light-hearted tone. She isn’t making fun of Bigfoot believers, and she has a unique theory about who or what a yeti is.

If readers are looking for a cute, upbeat novella to help cheer them up, Albright’s book will fit the bill perfectly. At the end of the story, Wilson is given the assignment to go to New Orleans and find out if vampires exist. Although Oliver doesn’t particularly want him to go—vampires being much more dangerous than Bigfoot, right?—this reader hopes he accepts the assignment. That story should be as fun as this one was.
