Driving Borscht Batty ( Wolves of Stone Ridge #29) by: Charlie Richards reviewed by: Becky
Out of the Cage: Sometimes dealing with unexpected events can drive you crazy…but that isn’t always a bad thing.
Borscht Kuznetsov is the master of his vampire coven. He likes his donors silent, his people obedient, and his life orderly. When an alarm on the northern outskirts of his property alert him to intruders, he leads the charge to drive the humans from his land. To his surprise, Borscht discovers they were chasing an Egyptian fruit bat. Confused by his sudden onslaught of protectiveness, he realizes the little creature is a shifter…who refuses to shift.
With his only memories that of his time spent in captivity, Sekani doesn’t know much. He can’t even understand the words of the people around him after he escapes from his prison. Still, one of them smells really good…and the man saved him from the hunters. When the man finally says a few words in halting English, Sekani learns that his world is so much larger than he could ever have imagined.
Can Borscht handle his beloved’s overabundance of excitement, especially when he learns that Sekani has friends that need rescuing?
I love all of the books I have read by Charlie Richards (believe you me that is a ton) but I have never melted over a character like I did Sekani, he was sooooo cute! I need a fruit bat now!
Sekani escapes from captivity during transport and ends up taking refuge in a tree on Borscht's land, and he wonders why the big man smells so good! Is Sekani willing to trust the big man to save him from the people hunting him? What will happen when the man that smells sooo good learns what he truly is?
Borscht is the master of his coven, and when he goes to investigate a disturbance on his property, the last thing he suspects is to find a cute little fruit bat that seems to find him irresistible! When he stops to think he is startled to realize that this little bat may be his beloved!
Join Sekani as he discovers good and not so good foods he has never had growing up in captivity, and when he discovers a bed bounces when you jump on it, it is so cute it hurts! You will enjoy the story of these two men learning each other and fighting to make it work! When they rescue Sekani's friends what will become of them and just how much will Sekani miss them if they go away?
You will get all these questions and more answered in this one friends, and such a dose of cuteness you just might have cuteness overload (though I don't think there is such a thing)! Thanks Charlie for taking a chance on a very cute bat and making it work and then some!

Sekani shifted on the stool’s cushion. Looking around the large kitchen, he took in all the colors and shiny surfaces. He tightened his folded hands, uncertain if he was allowed to touch anything but wanting to so badly.
“You okay there, little buddy?” Zakhar asked. After ending the call with Jared in the office, Nikolai had said that he’d round up the others. Borscht had told him he’d be there soon. He’d brought Sekani here and introduced him to Zakhar. After telling his brother to help him to find what kinds of foods he enjoyed, Borscht had given Sekani a kiss and told him he’d be back soon.
“Um, yeah,” Sekani whispered. He flattened one of his hands on the counter. “Smooth,” he commented, rubbing over the funny-colored surface. “It’s a stone called marble,” Zakhar told him. He placed a bowl full of a brown liquid on the counter and slid it toward Sekani. “This is called beef stew. Give it a try.” Sekani stared down at it. The bowl was full of brown liquid. Floating in the liquid were tiny pieces of what he assumed was food. The small ones were orange and green, then there were larger chunks of white and brown.
He hadn’t been given a lot of meat, but he recognized the brown chunks as the beef in the name. Dipping his fingers into the liquid, Sekani picked out a chunk of white. He stared at it for a few seconds, letting most of the brown liquid drip off it, then popped it into his mouth. Flavors Sekani couldn’t even begin to describe burst across his tongue. Humming, he dipped his fingers into the broth again and pulled out a piece of the meat.
As he chewed on it, a happy smile on his face, he heard Zakhar chuckle. Looking up from the food, Sekani watched the man slide a small plate with a piece of bread on it toward him. On the piece of bread, there was some kind of yellow stuff spread across it. Sekani dabbed his finger into it, then brought it to his nose and sniffed. Not certain what he was smelling, he glanced at Zakhar. “It’s butter,” Zakhar told him softly. “It’s spread on bread to make it sweeter.” Sekani stuck his finger into his mouth. Upon tasting it, he wrinkled his brow. He wasn’t certain if he liked it or not. “It tastes better on the bread,” Zakhar assured. “Also, use the spoon to scoop up the chunks in the stew,” he ordered softly, sliding a metal item toward him. “That way you won’t get your fingers wet.”
Picking up the item, Sekani held it up. There was a long slender piece of metal attached to a small, shallow, oblong bowl. “How, um—” Sekani hunched his shoulders and peered at Zakhar uncertainly. “I’ve never—” Zakhar rounded the counter. “Ah, I understand,” he rumbled softly. He stopped beside Sekani’s stool and gently pulled the spoon from his grip. “If you allow it, I will show you.” Sekani nodded slowly, relieved Zakhar didn’t look at him like he was an idiot. The guards had done that all the time. The scientists just looked at him as if he were some strange monster to figure out. “Like this,” Zakhar stated. He gently gripped Sekani’s wrist, then brought the spoon to his hand. “Grip the handle like this,” he instructed, wrapping Sekani’s much smaller fingers around the slender end. “Dip it in the soup.”
