Avery Donovan has escaped after being held captive almost thirty years. He is injured and on the run seeking refuge. While making his way across a ranch in southern Montana, he catches the unique smell of his mates. Alone and scared, he decides to trust fate and follow the scent of his men.
Childhood friends, Cord Hartwell and Tyson Fitzgerald, have spent decades denying their feelings for each other until one day, an injured saber-toothed tiger shows up on their front porch, shifts into a gorgeous man, and changes their lives. Avery has forty-eight hours to convince them he is their mate and claim them, or he will die.
Will Cord and Ty finally admit their feelings for each other and their desire for Avery, or will they continue to deny their feelings and risk losing their chance at happiness?
Here, Kitty, Kitty is a fast-paced romance, delving into the extraordinary world of the shifter. Ms. Flynn has created a new world with new rules and rituals, and even features an extinct saber tooth tiger shifter. I think you will find this book is a refreshing break from the ordinary.
This is the first in the Purrfect Mates series, and fans of this author will be pleased to know that the next two are already available. The story takes off right away as the protagonists meet under dire circumstances. The two ex-Marines, Cord and Tyson are the perfect match for Avery, a man dispossessed of any comfort or protection. I take joy in reading characters who are well-rounded and exhibit behavior that matches their personality in a consistent manner. Ms. Flynn allows these men to develop and change, growing as people, creating a viable triad.
Once their inhibitions are released, these three men light up the sky with the fireworks their sexual encounters create. It is satisfying to this reader to discover the dominant/submissive roles in the bed, shower, hot tub or any convenient flat surface, are surprisingly unpredictable. The dialogue was white hot creating the perfect preamble to their lovemaking. These romps were balanced with romantic and tender love scenes.
Here, Kitty, Kitty was an incredibly short book, and I wish that Cord and Tyson's relationship before Avery would have been fleshed out a little more. It is my hope that Ms. Flynn plans to continue these characters' development in her future installments. I am pleased to report there are very few editing errors, and the writing flows well from one page to the next. I have included a violence tag as there are some elements that are very intense.
Witty banter, intense eroticism, and blossoming romance are nicely combined in this rapid read. I think you will genuinely enjoy this book, and recommend picking it up. I have already purchased the next two books in the series because I connected with the characters, and look forward to the rest of their story and more. I'll end with my favorite quote from Here, Kitty, Kitty: “Then good thing fate gave you two ex-Marines...We can take care of this, baby.”
