Inhaltsangabe zu „Cutie and the Beast (Fae Out of Water) (Volume 1)“ von E.J. Russell

Temp worker David Evans has been dreaming of Dr. Alun Kendrick ever since that one transcription job for him, because holy cats, that voice. Swoon. So when his agency offers him a position as Dr. Kendrick’s temporary office manager, David neglects to mention that he’s been permanently banished from offices. Because, forgiveness? Way easier than permission. Alun Kendrick, former Queen’s Champion of Faerie’s Seelie Court, takes his job as a psychologist for Portland’s supernatural population extremely seriously. Secrecy is paramount: no non-supe can know of their existence. So when a gods-bedamned human shows up to replace his office manager, he intends to send the man packing. It shouldn’t be difficult—in the two hundred years since he was cursed, no human has ever failed to run screaming from his hideous face. But cheeky David isn’t intimidated, and despite himself, Alun is drawn to David in a way that can only spell disaster: when fae consort with humans, it never ends well. And if the human has secrets of his own? The disaster might be greater than either of them could ever imagine.

A very cute and funny romance

    David Evans starts temp work as an office manager for a psychological practice. But because of a flue epidemic, he, a human ends up at a place for supernaturals. Alun Kendrick, himself a Seelie fae cursed with a monstrous face that bars him from faerie, is enraged, there is a pact of secrecy, after all, but also intrigued and attracted to him. He tries to scare of David with his horrible face, but David is mostly just enamored with his voice and annoyed with his bossy attitude, but mostly determined to keep this job.This is just a very cute and funny story. David is a very dorky, klutzy, colorful character. It's very enjoyable to read about his efforts to make the practice brighter (Alun keeps everything in soothing greys) and his interactions with various supernatural patients he manages to help with charm and unusually methods without even really meaning to. His dynamic with the very grim, bossy and pessimistic Dr. Kendrick is also quite nice, since David absolutely refuses to be cowed.Aluns doom, gloom and self-sacrifice actually was at times a bit too much for me, but David proofs a reliable counterpoint for the most part.There also where a few logical incongruities, which I managed to ignore for the most part though, because it didn't really feel detrimental to the plot.
