This book was recommended to me by Nikyta, who is batting 100% with her recommendations to me I really wasn t so sure I would like this book as much as I did because I m not a big fan of cats There I said it I m very much a dog person Cats just don t seem to like me, lol After reading this book I may have to change my mind about cats because I really had a great time reading this book.I loved the MCs Noah and Gage This book was fun, quirky and so unexpected Who would have thought that the King of the Pride would be a house cat with OCD I think this is the first time I ve read a story where the character had OCD and it was written so well in the story.I loved how different Noah and Gage were, but that they fit so well together I loved how Gage freaked a little when he saw Noah shift for the first time and he left It s funny because Gage is this big bad fearless assassin, and he runs But not for long Gage goes looking for Noah and finds him just in time to prevent Noah s assassination.I don t want to give away too many details, but I was surprised and happy about all the little surprises about the characters that made this story unique.The secondary characters were great and I can t wait to read their stories As soon as I finished this I went looking for book 2 I was disappointed it wasn t out yet I am going to write Ms Glenn and find out what the hold up is, LOL I highly recommend this book if you want a good fun read. All I ve got to say is When is the next one coming out LOVED this book Noah starts out sweet, niave, and endearing And although he loses the niavete, watching him grow and change during the story was like enjoying a fine wine Stimulating to the senses I laughed, cried, and got mad Gage offers a wonderful counterpoint to Noah The street wise, hard core assassin learns some amazing truths to life like it s not worth living if you don t have someone to love I eagerly await the next one Very shallow fluffy PWP, and I mean it, this gives mud puddles depth.It was fun though, and a perfect intermission for sufferers of book hangovers A royal virgin shifter cat with healing powers and ability to lube prep himself when aroused Noah could feel his aching hole opening, the natural lube he created warming inside him.Human fantasy is endless I ll give you that.This story is your ordinary sugar romance novel There were few funny moments but apart from that you will hardly notice any change in your heart beat An easy read with no thoughts afterwards I can t give itthan 2 stars because there was nothing beyond that. I LOVED Noah at the beginning His OCD His reaction to Gage But then that suddenly disappeared as soon as he shifted It felt like he almost completely lost that in favor of either being horny or depressed or confused If he really was OCD, wouldn t it have just gotten worse because of those emotions His way of dealing, so to speak I mean, I understand the situation, and I though the plot was decent, but his awesome quirks at the beginning just never stuck.I mean, he never fixed the bookcase God that drove me bonkers, because I felt like he should not have been able to forget about it.And Gage never really show d his killer characteristic s like I hoped he would I mean, I saw the emotional stunt that he had because of it, but not the physical side He kind of just got weak and companionate out of nowhere.Add in a little anticlimactic ness and I was sad this book didn t turn out to be as good as I had hoped. This book, first in a new series, is funny, has wonderful characters, a great story, and if it is typical for what is to come, this series promises much entertainment The idea of having a royal line of cat shifters who are supposed to rule each pride is somewhat unusual, but the way to recognize these royals is priceless This first volume made me laugh out loud at some of Noah s comments and reactions to what was going on Gage, in his stoically mercenary attitude, stole my heart as well, especially when he began to learn and adjust to his new circumstances Mixing tension and a nefarious plot with humor isn t easy, yet I really liked the balance achieved in this book.Noah stole my heart from the first page He is so unbelievably clueless, na ve, and inexperienced And yet he manages to survive and teach those around him a few things as well He keeps a cool head in a crisis half the time because he doesn t even seem to understand there IS a crisis , and his reactions to Gage s initial brutality are amazingly sane He kept his sense of humor while under threat of getting killed instead of being shocked or scared when Gage carjacks him, he insists Gage put on his seat belt instead of pleading for his life once Gage tells him he has to shoot him, he makes sure his cat will be taken care of after he is gone And when push comes to shove, Noah shows his true colors without hesitation What a guy Gage annoyed the heck out of me, and not just because he s a hired killer He doesn t seem to be a very good one, at least he isn t where Noah is concerned I guess Noah just addles his brain to the point where Gage isn t his normal cold, bloodthirsty self As the story develops, he redeems himself through the way he ends up listening to Noah, even protecting him in the end The development from cold assassin to caring mate is remarkable, and initially goes unnoticed because Gage does his best to ignore it all Nobody can resist Noah s charms though, and I greatly enjoyed Gage falling for the diminutive looking man.Between the two of them they entertained me, dragged me with them through their amazing adventures, and endeared themselves to me through the way they fell for each other If you like slightly unusual shifters, action adventure and a bit of mystery, and are looking for an entertaining read that is very likely to make you laugh, you will probably like this novel as much as I did.NOTE This book was provided by Siren Publishing for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews. Loved it I loved Noah and Gage They were so sweet together Being In The Wrong Place At The Wrong Time Is Not Always A Bad Thing Noah Anderson Is Odd And He Knows It He Has A Strong Obsessive Compulsive Disorder That Keeps Him Organized But Distances Him From The World Around Him He Doesn T Have Any Friends, Family, Or Even A Lover He S Never Had A LoverWhen He Finds Himself In The Wrong Place At The Right Time, Noah Discovers That The Dangers Posed By Having Sex For The First Time Pale In Comparison To Having Sex With The Assassin That Comes To Kill Him, Even If It Means His LifeGage Tynan Is A Killer It S What He S Always Been And He Excelled At His Job Until He Jumped Into The Car Of A Passing Motorist When His Latest Mission Goes Wrong The Man Driving Is So Odd That Gage Suspects He Might Have Been Sent To Harm Him Gage Has No Idea That The Little Man That Asks Him To Take His Cat Will Change His Life In Ways He Has No Clue OfGage Is Dragged Into A World Of Shifters And Exiled Kings, One Where His Strength Will Be Called Upon To Keep Noah Safe From The Pride Soldiers Sent To Keep Him From Taking The Throne I totally enjoyed this read OMG A Stormy Glenn book that is actually well written I had to give it 4 for its lack of typos every other page and decent character development Stormy has never had a problem with the smut writing The reason I subject myself to her writing every now and then is that the tried and true PNR dom sub big bad alpha little sweet mate totally does it for me Since that is the basis of every Stormy Glenn and Joyee Flynn, Carol Lynne, etc book I have ever read, I keep coming back for a fix They are light, fluffy easy brain candy with hot man on man smut.This one really surprised me From the start, Noah s quirky character came out in the writing He was adorable And weird In an adorable way I was surprised that the whole pnr shifter thing didn t come out until pretty far in the book So, this included the same things that I like with a much, much better story writing style editing If all of her books could be this well done, I would read them all Well I will probably read them all anyway.
