It isn’t exactly a match made in heaven.
Mike isn’t much of an animal lover, but his sister insists every little boy needs a pet. Which is how Mike finds himself sitting in a veterinary office, trying to explain the facts of life to his six-year-old nephew while holding a dead hamster in a shoebox. It’s not one of his finer moments. So of course, that’s when he encounters the cute, shy and utterly lust-worthy Riley Laytham.
Riley isn’t used to guys flirting with him, and he definitely didn’t expect it to happen at the local vet office. In the kennels, no less, surrounded by cats and dogs and under the close scrutiny of one overly inquisitive little boy.
Their first date is a disaster. They have nothing in common, and Riley’s cats seem determined to end the budding relationship before it can get started. For some reason, though, Mike is sticking around despite cat scratches, rampant allergies, and nosy siblings. Now Riley just has to decide if he can make it work with a guy who staunchly declares that he doesn’t like cats.
Learning to love cats is a cute and flirty story which is high improbable, but hey it’s a fiction, so I will let it go. Mike and Riley were sweet together and with the addition of all sorts of feline activity, this short and funny novella becomes sweeter.
Mike and Riley fall in instalust and love follows after not more than two dates. The guys have very little in common and Riley is always shown to have reservations about them being together, but Mike bulldozes into his life and his heart like a man possessed and the fact that he hates cats is not enough to deter him from his path.
Mike hates cats in general and is also allergic to the fur balls. So, falling in love with a person who runs a cattery is sure to be funny. I enjoyed the light hearted feel of this novella.
I know it’s a novella but still the characters were not developed properly. I could not connect with them. I enjoyed the fun and the table sex but apart from that, there was very little left.
