Kyle thought that he was all alone, the only of his kind, until he attended a magic show and saw through the spectacle to the method behind the illusion. If he wasn't wrong, Meric the Magician, in addition to being his best friend, was also a tiger shifter.
Coming clean about your fears can sometimes be the most rewarding experience of your life—if you’re willing to relax and trust. That’s what makes Caging the Tiger such an engaging read.
When I picked up this book, I knew I’d meet a cat shifter. I like tigers and gay romance can be very sensual. Let me tell you, I wasn’t mistaken. This is one great read.
Ms. Huston draws you in with realistic characters that you feel like you know right away. There are fumbles and bumbles between them, but the trust is always there. And when they get the issues worked out and let the tiger play… man is it hot! You'll have to check your fingers for burns.
Meric/Mark is a magician and he’s stolen Kyle’s heart. I liked that even though Mark plays the showman, he’s still a tad fragile. His fragility and heart of gold endears him to the reader. You want to see him find the man of his dreams. I liked the interplay with Kyle as well. Kyle has secrets that would drive many away. Those secrets have kept him locked in a mental prison, so to speak. When he gets past his fears, you see what a truly remarkable man he is. I liked his quiet nature.
If you want a story that will reel you in right away and will leave you with a smile, then you need to read Caging the Tiger. I give this novella 4 cherries.
