Dave Wallace is on his way to work when the sight of a tiny kitten stranded on an interstate overpass nearly breaks his heart. After he stops to save her, he goes to the nearest vet and meets Dr. Christian Prince, a gorgeous man David assumes is straight and completely uninterested in him. When Dave leaves he knows he'll never see the vet again... until Christian calls him about the kitten, and maybe more.
Hot guys, a wounded little kitten and steamy sex...what more can a girl ask for? A copy of The Furry Matchmaker, that’s what!
I’m a sucker for M/M stories. I love them sweet, sticky, sexy... doesn’t matter. I also love stories with kitties in them. This book delivers both the M/M and the kitty. Coupled with Ms. Toland’s easy writing style and descriptive scenes, and the reader is in for a treat.
I fell in lust with this book when I read the blurb. Dave and Christian are great heroes. There’s a healthy dose of miscommunication and non communication that give the story lots of tension. I liked the moments of confusion and fumbling. It made the book all the more real with those elements.
Granted, this is a story short on words, but it's not short on heart. Dave...where do I start? The guy has a heart the size of Texas. He’s been through a rough stretch, but darn it if he doesn’t still care. I loved the scene where he rescued the kitten. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. And the moment he met Christian—that’s great stuff. I felt the apprehension, the desire, and the reawakening of Dave’s heart. I smiled along with him. And then there’s Christian. I wasn’t sure what to make of him at first. He’s hot, don’t get me wrong, but he seemed a bit distant. Once I got to know him, I loved him. I did. The guy isn’t what he seems and its perfect for the story. And the sex? Whew!! It’s that hot.
If you want a short story that will leave you with a smile and the urge to grab the one you love for a cuddle, then you need to read The Furry Matchmaker. I give this book 4.5 cherries.
