My biggest problem with this book was that it was too short or wasn't a series, I loved the characters and totally didn't want the book to end. First and foremost I thought the push pull of the relationship between Lilly and Dante. I think what made their relationship even better was that while they were both shifters, he is a werewolf and she is a lynx, so while their is some common ground between them because they are shifters, they don't necessarily understand the culture behind the their respective groups, which makes things interesting.
So Lilly wants land her family seemingly lost in a poker game to Dante's family, she wants to buy the land and she isn't taking no for an answer. Only Dante is so not saying yes. Add in the fact that Lilly is in heat, it only serves to make things more complicated, and suddenly Lilly and Dante, who used to be rivals are suddenly being pulled together by some magnetic force they can't escape. Dante comes up with a plan to solve his own pack problems by mating with Lilly and he'll give Lilly the land she wants if she agrees. If this doesn't sound like a recipe for conflict, you'd be wrong.
Part of what I liked about this book was that Lilly and Dante somehow managed to be strong as a pair, in spite of their rivalry, once they come together they stand strong. It's all the other people in their lives who make things complicated. There are some great scenes between Lilly and Dante, definitely hot and heavy, and a fun read. The pacing is great in this book and I didn't put it down once. I hope Jodi writes more books like this because I would definitely read them, if you like hot and heavy shifters then this is a great read for you!
It should be no surprise that I am a fan of paranormal romance. There was a time when that genre for me was synonymous with vampire romance. I have since broadened my horizons, so to speak. Stepping out of my 'vampire' comfort zone led me to venture into the vast paranormal world. Who knew that there were so many to chose from? There are a few authors who I know will never disappointment me with a unique twist and just enough heat to make things interesting. Jodi Redford is high on that list of authors. That being said, when she sent out requests to review a new book, how could I possibly refuse? Obviously I couldn't. ;)
I wasn't really sure what to expect from Cat Scratch Fever. I've read all the books in Jodi's That Old Black Magic Series and was very familiar with her style of writing and the characters. That series mixes the shifting world with the world of magic and the symbiotic relationship between the two works very well. Cat Scratch Fever is centered strictly around the shifter world, and guess what? It works too!
From the first chapter this book sucked me in. It wasn't just the heat and tension, and trust me, there was a LOT of heat and tension, but that's not the only thing that kept me turning pages. The draw and connection between the characters, the mystery, the loyalty of the family and friends and Lilly and Dante's ultimate love for each other kept me reading. I loved the twists and turns and even though the inherent, obvious evil (of the supernatural variety) wasn't present there was still enough action and good vs (really, really) bad to make things interesting.
The only complaint that I had at the end of Cat Scratch Fever is that I wanted more. Hopefully Jodi has more planned for Lilly and Dante because they have turned into one of my favorite shifter couples.
