Manic Monday | Drive-By Reviews ~ Meow!


Manic Monday | Drive-By Reviews is a weekly feature where we’ll share some mini-reviews Alice-style.

Here Kitty, Kitty! (Magnus Pack #3) by Shelly Laurenston

What do you do when you’ve got a hillbilly tiger by the tail? Or maybe the question should be: what wouldn’t you do…

Nikolai Vorislav likes his single life just as it is. Simple, relaxing and quiet. What he doesn’t need is some foul-mouthed Texan hellcat living in his house, eating his food, flirting with his idiot brothers and shooting holes in his home with his granddaddy-s gun. But those long legs, dark eyes and lethal tongue are making Nik insane and he fears he may be caught in the sexiest animal trap ever.

Angelina Santiago doesn’t know how she got from Texas to North Carolina in a night or how she ended up in some hillbilly tiger’s house wearing only a sheet. What she does know is that she doesn’t like good ol’ boys with slow, sexy drawls who can’t seem to stop rubbing up against her. Yet in order to protect her friends, Angie has to stay with a cat who seems hellbent on finding all sorts of delicious ways to make her purr.

Warning – this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, and strong violence.

“Curiouser and curiouser!” ~ Alice

Opening Line: He didn’t actually see the wall until he walked into it. {Prologue: Nikolai}
Closing Line: For life. {Nikolai}

“Twinkle, twinkle, little bat! How I wonder what you’re at.” ~ Mad Hatter

Big cats have always been my favorite animals and Nikolai Vorislav has now proven they are among my favorite shifters as well. Nik is happy being unattached. He was perfectly fine alone until his brothers brought the long-legged beauty, Angelina Santiago, into his house. She was attacked by hyenas, rescued and kidnapped all in the same day. She demands they take her to Sara & Zach, but the pack asks her to wait a bit because they have their hands full at the moment keeping a pregnant Miki safe. True to form, she tortures Nik with her over-the-top purchases (using his money) and constantly calls him a hillbilly. Nik’s mom and dad are monogamous, but that’s not typical with big cats. His sister, Kisa and cousin, Reena tease him when he starts displaying signs of a man/shifter who has found his mate. The pairing is once again a perfect match. These two balance each other out with her spicy attitude and his sweet Southern charm. (I do love it when a southern man says, “Sugar.” Mmmm)


“What is the use of a book, without pictures or conversations” ~ Alice

Shelly Laurenston was not a New2Me author.

“That’s just it. If you don’t think, then you shouldn’t talk.” ~ The Hare

Shelly really knows how to write spicy hot shifters. I have had so much fun reading this series!
I am looking forward to reading her Pride series next.

“Take care of the sense, and the sounds will take care of themselves” ~ The Dutchess

As always, there is no shortage of LOL and/or sizzlin’ hot quotes. These are just a couple of my favorites.

“Because, Sugar… you make me purr.” {Nikolai}
“Claws! Claws! Claws in my ass!” {Angie}
“Dammit, man … You’re a cat. Act like one!” {Ban, Nik’s brother}

“We are all mad here.” ~ The Cheshire Cat

This book receives the Cheshire Cat award for making me wish I had a 700-pound Siberian tiger to snuggle.

Until Next Week ~ Happy Reading!
