Blurb: Austen is content with his life even though he has no man to speak of and his sister is the most company he’s been keeping lately. Then, a sexy stranger stops him on the street to ask him out. Hesitant, Austen turns Kieron down, deciding to err on the side of caution. The first time Kieron saw Austen, he was curious as to why a hired killer would be following him. One look and Kieron is smitten. His cat becomes determined to do two things. One, claim Austen for its own and two, protect him from the other dangers stalking him at all costs. And as that danger gets closer, Austen loses his heart to Kieron against his better judgement. However, falling in love has never been more romantic or risky, but it’s too late to stop, not that he can hide from Kieron anyway. Once a hunter has the scent of his prey, nothing can alter his course.
Review: Each book in the Wildcat County collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Things are out of control for Austen. He loves his little sister something fierce, but the rest of the family could drop dead. His boss wants him to take over the shop but he has some conditions that Austen doesn’t like. Then a sexy cat ask him out, and he just wasn’t sure he wanted to try. His last mate left him and hooked up with a female. He just wasn’t to sure about love.
Kieron was working for the good guys while undercover with the bad guys. He has been given instructions on what to do, but a sexy feline has him tied into knots. Then he finds out that Austen’s family just might be involved. He was a hired killer for Logan, but he knows he will protect his mate. That is if he can get his mate to behave.
With this story you definitely have to read the previous books. The characters are so hard to follow and even though they are fighting for good, you just can’t tell. This story was actually a bit easier to follow but still ended up giving me a damn headache. I was glad for the ending and happy to see them together. The writing is well done and the story top rated, but like I said it is a bit confusing. It jumps from one spot to the next.
I can honestly say that I am on the line with this book. I don’t know if I like it or not. It has a darkness to it that I don’t really care for and very little humor to make up for it. I hate to admit that I might just give up on this series, since I have difficulties following it. Oh well we will see what the next one looks like.
