Blurb: Hallie James loves cats—she just never realized she was one herself. Not until she met delicious leopard shifters Gar and Cal, one sinfully dark, one beautifully golden.

A terrifying meeting with a runaway pit bull lands her on her butt on the sidewalk. But when the dog’s owners appear out of nowhere, asking if she’s all right, Hallie has the most shocking reaction to their mouthwatering…scent!

Cat pheromones are powerful, and Gar and Cal’s attraction to the human is as instant as hers is to them. Hallie finds herself caught between two cats—hot and hard Gar, and his hot and delicious little brother Cal. When a gal is confronted with such a succulent choice, why not enjoy the fact that cats aren’t monogamous?

Review: I have always been a sucker for super sexy shifters. This story definitely has two studs who fit the bill and a woman who is on the receiving end of their affections. What a place to be:) The story and characters were well written and kept my attention focused.

I loved the tale......until......yet, the dreaded ICK factor hit. Now don't get me wrong, shifters ROCK and the fact that the heroine is also a shifter makes it cool.......BUT cat copulation is definitely NOT titillating for me to read. and after the feline lovin she is left a bit battered "down there" and one of the feline lovers......*gag* sorry he cleans the affected area the way cats clean every part of their bodies. *lick* *lick* maybe wouldn't have been so bad if I hadn't had to read about the injured naughty bits and how he cleansed them. EEEK!

With that being said, if I could blot that spot from my mind forever, I would definitely read the story again. That one spot was my only issue through all 69 pages and it was toward the very end.

Ms. Lee, I have read several of your titles and have to say that even though there may be an occasional icky spot for me, I fully intend to come back for more :)

Ooooh! I read this one and the "ick factor" didn't bother me a bit! LOL! I have read dozens of erotic romances where a guy uses his tongue on every inch of a female bottom end, and this one is hilariously tongue-in-cheek, to use a bad pun! I love her stuff. I think this one is hot and funny.

I also read this one. I found the story very hot with the exception of reading about them having sex while they were in their cat form. And I do have to agree about the refrence to her private part being bloody and the brother licking it. Kinda gross. but the rest of the sex was super hot!

It was medicinal...LOL! I thought the book was hilarious, and I am pretty sure it was written to be so. One person's "ick" is another person's "wowza". I have read so many books that have a shocking part, but that is what makes them all click. If you are a cat, there is nothing wrong with cat sex, and nothing at all wrong with cleaning up a sore pal. You gotta think of it as "cats", guys. Loved it!

True That is why there are so many books out there. Not every book is for every one and not every one will be happy with every aspect of every book. I have read lots of books where I loved the vast majority of the book but found one or two parts that just didn't jive for me. That doesn't mean that I didn't enjoy the story though. It's like the site says in the side bar, reviews are only the opinion of that reader. How many times have reviews for movies sucked but it was one you just couldn't get enough of? Every one has their own opinion. Personally, I liked the story, cat sex and all. It's not like the heroine was in her human form and the guys were cats. They were all cats. And it is common knowledge that male cats have barb like things on their willies so it hurts when they extract themselves from the female. So the younger brother, in cat form, offers aid and licks her ingured southern bits. Cats do that. I can see how some folks might not jive with it, but the same could be said about many other sexual situations in every other book.

You are right on with that one. I recently read a book where a guy jams his tongue into his partner's anus and gets her off that way. I realize that a lot of people adore anal stimulation, and many people don't get an "ick" reaction to stuff like that.

Because you made such a raunchy deal about the ick factor, I actually bought this book to see what was so bad about it. So thanks for your "ick" review, because my curiosity paid off big time. I loved this book! I laughed my ass off, and started to reach for my toys!

Hey you guys! Quit arguing over "ick". LOL! And the brother was a cat and so was Hallie when he cleaned her up like that...a totally normal thing for cats to do something that "icky".
