“The Kitten’s Got Curves (Shifter Date #3)”
by Alma Black
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: December 26, 2016
Cute, quick read with plenty of heat. Gareth and Rachel are likable and have obvious chemistry.
Good flow to the story, but Gareth’s call to mate and Rachel’s response…or lack of…sometimes…is mentioned often. What of Rachel? Do lion shifters have fated mates or are they simply chosen by other shifters?
After the horrific death of Gareth’s father, the danger element was watered down, anti-climactic, and felt rushed. With Mister Mysterious watching Gareth…and then Rachel from the beginning, I expected more of a confrontation.If this is what happened to Gareth’s father, he shouldn’t be dead.
This is considered a standalone but interconnected in the series. Some of the plot points simply fizzled away without any true resolution. I’m curious as to whether they will be picked up in subsequent stories. Didn’t work for me as a strong HEA.
