The fur is about to fly between a cheerful cat sitter and a grumpy hockey nerd in this hilarious and charming rom-com  by the New York Times bestselling author of Meet Cute .

Kitty Hart has become internet famous as the Kitty Whisperer for her expertise on all things feline, and as a result, her cat-sitting business is booming. But lately, she has a terrible feeling that maybe her life isn’t  quite  going where it’s supposed to—especially after falling face-first into her newest client.  Not exactly the best first impression .

Fortunately, Miles Thorn is just as bad at first impressions. Strike he doesn’t like cats, especially Prince Francis, the haughty and mischievous Sphynx his mom left in his care. Strike tackling Kitty to the floor in a misguided attempt to save the pet he continually calls “the gremlin.”

As awkwardness slides into attraction and things start to turn purr-sonal, will these two complete opposites ever be able to find their furry-tail ending?

My Review

Now, I’m not a cat person. Mostly because I’m allergic, and in college I had a roommate who decided to get a cat while I was gone during the summer. And then when I told her I couldn’t live with one, she skipped out of the apartment and I had to find a new place to live. But, I do think cats are cute. I don’t hate cats. But I also totally get what Kitty thought about dog people. Because yeah, there were some things in the story that were surprises to me about cats. And of course I even learned something new this past weekend from my own sister about how the main allergen from cats actually has to do with their saliva, not the hair/dander, because they are licking themselves all the time the saliva is on those things. But I digress from my review.

Now along her line of thoughts about giving dog loving guys more of a chance, maybe I need to give cat loving guys more of a chance than I have in the past, lol. Kitty and Miles had a total meet cute, even if he was a total grump at first. Now, to be fair, Miles was dealing with a lot with his mom in the hospital. And what is it right now with so many books seeming to have situation similar to what I just went through or am thinking I’ll soon be worrying about with my own parents? And, Miles did come out of his grumpiness and was actually a pretty nice guy, if a bit awkward at times. But in a cute way!

I love that we didn’t necessarily get any of the breaking up bits, especially not in the 3rd act. I guess in a way that might make this not quite a romance exactly. For me though, it seemed pretty realistic, as if it was the way a normal person might fall in love and go about a relationship. At least from most of the examples I’ve seen in my life of relationships that have lasted. We still got a lot of the steamy scenes that Hunting does so well. I’d say this was a win of a story, one I couldn’t put down!

      Same here! But I get someone loving their pets, whatever they are. I mean I’m kind of crazy about dachshunds, lol.

      Lol, yeah, because of my allergy to them, I try not to be too close as much as possible. I can swear to myself I won’t touch my eyes or face after I pet one, but it never fails and I do.

      Oh my gosh! Blisters on your eyes? That would freak me out soooooooo much! It was a fun read! I have one of these types of standalones by the author to read still, but I just need time to fit it in.
