Julian's sister has convinced him he needs a dog to keep him company, but when he spots the big orange tabby, that is Mac, he decides the cat is what he really wants. Once Julian brings Mac home, it means he's free to take on human form from sunset to sunrise, but he can't reveal himself to Julian or both of their lives will be at risk.
“Best in Show” is a fun little novella. It doesn't demand to be taken too seriously, yet doesn't rely on cardboard cutout characters. Mac and Julian come across as real people, real normal people. Julian in particular is described as a very average guy: not in the greatest of shape, wears glasses, and is more than a little introverted. All this helps you suspend disbelief over the fantastical aspects of the story and just enjoy the ride.
3.5 Here Kitty stars!! Quirky and different, but refreshingly cute!
Julian is a mystery writer, who spends most of his time alone. His sister convinces him to go to an animal rescue shelter to get a pet. While there he falls for an adorable orange cat and adopts him. Once home, he notices there's something different about his new pet. Macavity is living a curse, during the day he's the adorable orange cat but at night he turns back into his human form. While exploring his new home Mac finds a journal from a dead great-great-great grandmother, who just so happens to be a very powerful witch. Not happy that Mac has shown Julian who he really is, she causes even more problems for the both of them....
I'm not usually a shifter fan, but I thought the blurb was interesting. And while I was entertained by the book overall, I just couldn't really get into the story. Not that the story was horrible, I just never connected to Mac and Julian as a couple. There were definitely parts that I chuckled and found myself invested, but other times, I just wasn't into it. Overall a pretty cute book, but definitely different!

This was a very cute novella. Mac and Julian were adorable and adorable together. I loved the witchcraft and the family history. I love that even with this being short, both Mac and Julian did a bit of growing up and soul searching. And in the end, they each pushed the other to break out and try something new!
Best in Show did a great job with setting things up but not forcing more than the word count could support. And things seem set up so that there will be a sequel because Julian and Mac’s story has just begun. And the reader needs to find out if Aunt Clare ever gives her permission to Julian! I could also be making that bit about being set up for a sequel just because I am hopeful there will be one (hint hint! Pretty please!!). There is so much potential for there to be more to this story and I for one would be eager to read it!
I recommend this one for anyone looking for something short, sweet, and satisfying. It made me smile and I am hopeful it will make you smile too.
Julian is a cat shifter and has been able to shift since the age of 13. he also loves playing pranks and that has gotten him cursed by his witch relative. Now he can only change into a human at night. He finds himself in a humane shelter, then luckily adopted by Julian. He planned to shift the first night and escape, but the way Julian cared so much for the large cat kept Julian hanging around.
I absolutely loved this story. Both Julian, Mac, and Mac in cat form are such fun, compelling characters. We get the story in all three views and I loved that we got the cat's view too. I am a cat lover and I can see my cat in Mac's view. The story is charming, well-written and an allover fun, sexy romance. There is a twist of a secret journal and witches tossed in as well. I would have liked seeing more of this twist in the story or maybe another book with all of these characters since there was a view question's not answered.
If you like cats. shifters, witches, writers, men that are not perfect, A fun, charming, sexy romance this is a must read.
