Review: When the paddles come out, the cats will play...

Paige's job is love. As a partner at a dating agency, which caters to shifter clients, she helps people find their mates. And she has a good track record. Her own love life, though, is more complicated. Her ex just might be stalking her in an attempt to get her back. And a certain handsome dominant keeps rubbing her the wrong way. There is a storm brewing and it may be of the supernatural variety.

Tyler has been looking for the woman he spanked at a convention years ago. No, it's not the most conventional way to meet a lady, but there was something about this one which stuck with him. And when he sees her again at a BDSM club, his cat side wants to claim her just as much as his human side does. Unfortunately, there is another man out there with his eye on Paige and that guy will resort to any trickery to get his hands on her. For good.

This is the first book I've read of the series, but it was still easy enough to follow. There was a bit of jumping around the timeline in the beginning and after that it flowed better. The story had a bit of mystery and suspense to it as well, which I wasn't expecting. It's a shorter book, yet I think we get to know our characters fairly well in the time allowed. I do wish our couple had spent more time together, however.

There was quite a bit of spice in this story. I was surprised to see that it really wasn't heavy in the BDSM at all. And the couple do develop a bit more than just a physical attraction, even if it is mostly through their shifter animals connecting rather than something emotional. The bedroom scene was entertaining and the action toward the end kept me on my toes. This definitely made me interested in other books in the series. Four suns!
