Review of The Troll Whisperer by Sera Trevor

The Troll WhispererThe Troll Whisperer by Sera Trevor

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 stars

Oscar is an asshat. Seriously. A real jerk. He is nasty both to himself and others and his favourite hobby is pissing people off, either by online trolling or by deliberately acting up and defying authorities.

Noah is his complete opposite. He is clean, tidy, caring and sweet. The two cross paths both online and in real life. Online Oscar behaves like his usual jerk self where as he is actually being kind in real life, admittedly to get laid at first, but their accidental meeting blooms into a friendship with benefits.

I really really enjoyed the first 75% or so of this story. Oscar was a real piece of work, nasty and destructive, though not only towards others but also toward himself. To see him try and conform to please Noah was sweet.
Unfortunately the author ran out of steam (or time?) around that point and the last 25% became too rushed. Everything wrapped up nicely with a bow, but without the care and depth that the first three quarters of the story gave us.

There is a short sequel though, so I am hoping that will give us a bit more.
