Goran’s mouth has no filter, and it’s losing him job after job. Desperate and a week away from being homeless, he finds an offer online that sounds too good to be true. Spending six months in a mansion by the beach in return for a hundred thousand dollars as long as he sticks to the house rules.
This might be the one job where his unruly mouth doesn’t get in the way. After all, saying the wrong thing is impossible… when you’re role-playing a cat.
Meeting all the other guys at the cattery seems to be the icing on the cake, but the inconvenient truth he dishes out turns out to be too much. Goran makes everyone his enemy, but worst of all, Ollie, the prettiest cat of the bunch, the one who’s been in the cattery the longest, and the one who makes Goran’s heart skip a beat.
Ollie’s big blue eyes hold secrets Goran is intent on cracking, but to do so, he will need to learn to bite his tongue and listen. Too bad the pretty blond ice prince is set on getting Goran kicked out of the cattery for good.
This is a book I’ve been meaning to read for a long time. The concept intrigues me but at the same time I was wary. I’ve read puppy play and pony play but cats by their very nature are fickle animals so unlike cuddly puppies or pretty ponies. This is a more fluffy pet play story than the other types and I seriously wonder why I was so wary. There is a cuteness about five men being cats with all their personalities matched to fit their cat persona.
Luis is a socially shy billionaire who likes the company of cats, human cats rather than people. He has built them their own luxury Cattery with everything they can desire, a chef, pool, games, etc. There are rules to follow but after six months a hundred thousand dollars. Easy money so Goren thinks. There are four cats already in the Cattery. Ollie (Oliver) was the original cat and has been with Luis for two years, Stoic Clove, easy going Bounce and nasty joker Cinnamon. Goren’s cat name is Smokey. From the start Goren’s straight talking upsets the others and he is given the cold shoulder. Six months is a long time with no other interactions if you don’t get along. The fun of the story is the interactions between characters. There is rivalry, bitching, sympathy, fun with a human size cat tree/gym, sex, blow jobs and cat fights real and play. Luis just wants to have fun with his kitties when he visits but since Goren arrived there have been tension. I’m not sure I like Luis as a character. He just wants the play kitties but doesn’t seem to be invested in the welfare of the men themselves. The emotions of the five men go through are described in depth and I love the way they give themselves over with abandon to their roles when called.
I was grateful for the epilogue giving a happy ever after but I was left wondering about Luis. This is sup to be the start of a series so there is hope of finding out what happened to the others.
All in all I quite enjoyed this kinky erotic fluffy romance.
