Inhaltsangabe zu „The Druid Next Door (Fae Out of Water Book 2)“ von E.J. Russell

Professor Bryce MacLeod has devoted his entire life to environmentalism. But how effective can he be in saving the planet when he can’t even get his surly neighbor to separate his recycling?

Former Queen’s Enforcer Mal Kendrick doesn’t think his life could get any worse: he’s been exiled from Faerie with a cursed and useless right hand. When he’s not dodging random fae assassins in the Outer World, he’s going toe-to-toe with his tree-hugging neighbor. And when he discovers that the tree hugger is really a druid, he’s certain the gods have it in for him—after all, there’s always a catch with druids. Then he’s magically shackled to the man and expected to instruct him in Supernatural 101.

All right, now things couldn’t possibly get worse.

Until a mysterious stranger offers a drunken Mal the chance to gain back all he’s lost—for a price. After Mal accepts, he discovers the real catch: an ancient secret that will change his and Bryce’s life forever.

Ah, what the hells. Odds are they won’t survive the week anyway.

    The Druid Next Door (Fae Out of Water Book 2)

    After being exiled from Faerie and with a useless right hand, Mal's live has gone downhill for him. David did buy him a nice, environment-friendly house, but apparently the dorky tree hugger next door, Bryce,  is actually a druid, and fae and druids just don't get along. And then David's grandmother also binds the two of them together, so Mal can teach Bryce the ins and outs of supernatural lore.But it seems there's more than one bond at work, because Mal has the sudden and inexplicable urge to submit to Bryce, which is really not his usual MO.Now, I liked the first part of the series, but I thought this one was even better. Bryce and Mal just make an awesome couple. Bryce had the potential to be even more righteous prick than Alun, but he turns out a passionate, but reasonable guy with a good head on his shoulders, while Mal is more of a "do first, think later... if at all" kind of person, but they complement each other so well.The interaction between the two is fun and sexy and romantic. It gets a bit too sappy for me once or twice, but mostly it's just right.I also thought the D/s relationship was portrayed pretty well, it did not feel over the top or unrealistic, and I liked that Bryce, not Mal, was the reluctant one for the most part.I also thought the story worked a lot better this time around. The pacing was better, and the whole world building and background just slotted into it more. It just felt more fitting and completely rounded. I didn't detect any logical errors this time around.I actually don't have any complaints about this book at all. I loved it to bits.
