Review: This is my new favorite Valentine’s Day story. It is amazing the way what is normally serious turns into a fit of laughter. Chocolate is not a good idea for cats or in this case shape-shifting cats.
I love the way Kevin wants his roommate to find out that, he wants him. He gives him romance or at least chocolates. What he didn’t know was Brady was allergic to them. What he didn’t know was Brady was a shape-shifter. The cat that hated him at first was indeed Brady. He wanted him from the moment he moved in, but just didn’t know how to tell him. He thought Brady wanted him by the little touches and caresses. He just wasn’t sure. He would do anything to keep his man and when told they were mates he was stunned but very happy. The sex is amazing, sensuous, and very hot. You will fall in love with Kevin and Brady from the moment you meet them. They are gentle, kind, and very sweet.
Poisoned by chocolate is quite a way to go even for love. I loved this little story and look forward to reading more of Jackie’s stories. I do wish this one had been a bit longer though. I would love to hear more about them and their lives.
It is my favorite holiday story yet.
