I liked the overall concept of the story. However, it was just too many elements happening, and some did not seem realistic. I thought the characters were okay. Mikaela was fine, but Josh was so crass right away. It just sort of put me off. I don't mind some dirty talk, but it seemed off to me that these guys aren't usually around single women and he was THAT forward within minutes of meeting her.
The other part I didn't like was that you find out about the family being shifter, and we seem some history about a brother, but the story really does not delve into it. This was what I found really frustrating about this book. It had some great bones, and you were interested, and then it just stopped. When Mikaela does find out about the shifting, she does not even seem phased by it. Which is fine, but at no point does the book mention anything about shifters being commonplace, or at least known about on a level that would not alarm someone.
I don't think you'd be wasting your time by getting this book, but just know it is short, and it seems a bit disjointed. I think I would love to see this book worked on more, and then re-released. I thought the general plot line was just fine, but this had so much detail for so few pages, and it just kept seeming more and more unrealistic.
The cover is beautiful!! I’d take Josh and his cat anyday ;)
This is an adult book due to the sexual content and scenes which were very steamy.
I’ve had this book for more than a year, and I’m not sure why I didn’t read it sooner. This is my first time reading Mandy’s work, and it is definitely not my last. This book surprised me because normally I want action not just dating or sexual drama, but Mandy did a phenomenal job of pulling me into the story and not letting go. I know it says this book is around 75 pages, but it felt much fuller a story than 75 pages and I have no idea how she managed it but awesome!!! :)
Mikaela is an awesome female lead because she strong and quick witted and is excellent with her banter. I was definitely laughing out loud several times when her and Josh were having words. Josh is strong, sexy, and very devious which I love :)
Mandy’s shifter world is more like cats in the wild which is really cool and makes it a unique twist for what I’ve read thus far. Of course I didn’t want it to end, so now I want more!!! It is a good thing I have book 2 as part of a bundle shifter set I bought!!! YAY!!!
I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves shifter reads and being free it is a great way to get to know this author’s work!!!
I like Mikaela she’s adorable and Josh while he is ruled by his cat he seems to need her as much as she needs him. They have a lot of chemistry between the two of them that is on fire and heating up the bedroom. While I’m not a huge fan of insta love it just really works for these two of them. A sweet steamy happy ever after with just enough story and bedroom romance in the mix.
I happened across this one that was on my kindle the allure of the cougar shifter is what captured my attention. The concept for the cougar shifters is unique what happens when the find their mate was really interesting. I can see why their father kept them isolated because if things didn’t work out it could end badly for both. I enjoyed the authors story telling it’s a fast paced whirlwind romance that just really works out. I enjoyed every page it was hard to put down I finished it in about twenty minutes. I’m curious to see how the rest of the series will play out for Josh’s brothers.
