[Adult] Book Review: Bad Kitty by Eliza Gayle
Author: Eliza Gayle
Series: Southern Shifters, #1
Publisher: Gypsy Ink Books
Publication Date: September 10, 2013
Synopsis: If you think you've lost everything. Think again.
Kitty lost her father, her home and her clan. Clinging to what's left of her pride, she's forced into the neutral zone, the supposed safe haven for half-breeds and outcasts. An attack forces her to the wrong side of the treaty line and into an even more dangerous situation. Determined to greet death with the last of her dignity, she is suddenly rescued by a tall, gorgeous...wolf???
As the next alpha leader of his pack, Rafe Comyn has more than enough to handle with pack politics and precarious treaties. The last thing he needs is a pissed off feline landing in his lap, especially when her scent triggers his overwhelming drive to mate. While the daughter of a former rival is quite a conquest, she's both forbidden and dangerous.
But as the heat of desire threatens to consume them, their differences escalate and Rafe must keep his own pack from killing the one woman he can't live without.
Verdict: I thoroughly enjoyed Bad Kitty!! And the only reason it didn't get a higher rating is because I felt like there were a lot of things left unexplained and unresolved. Our main character, Kitty, is a cougar shifter who has just been exiled from her clan. She moves to the neutral zone only to be attacked by a bunch of pissed off she-cougars from her old clan. She flees for her life and ends up entering wolf territory where her she is once again in danger, only this time she's got a rescuer. And he's one hot Alpha wolf! I really loved Rafe, he was so accepting and protective and did I mention that he's hot? Cougars and Wolves pretty much hate each other, but with the help of a treaty, they have a shaky peace with one another. Rafe never let any of this bother him when it came to his mate. He was going to protect her no matter what. I also loved how concerned Kitty was for Rafe's well-being instead of just thinking about herself. Together, these two shifters make one awesome couple and I look forward to seeing more of them throughout the series! :)
