Review: Bad Kitty by Eliza Gayle

Review by Wendy Dawn

“In Summation”:

bad kittyIf you think you've lost everything. Think again.

Kitty lost her father, her home and her clan. Clinging to what's left of her pride, she's forced into the neutral zone, the supposed safe haven for half-breeds and outcasts. An attack forces her to the wrong side of the treaty line and into an even more dangerous situation. Determined to greet death with the last of her dignity, she is suddenly rescued by a tall, gorgeous…wolf???

As the next alpha leader of his pack, Rafe Comyn has more than enough to handle with pack politics and precarious treaties. The last thing he needs is a pissed off feline landing in his lap, especially when her scent triggers his overwhelming drive to mate. While the daughter of a former rival is quite a conquest, she's both forbidden and dangerous.

But as the heat of desire threatens to consume them, their differences escalate and Rafe must keep his own pack from killing the one woman he can't live without.

“The Reviews are in”:

This is a very engaging read. The storyline falls into the series by Ms. Gayle or can be a standalone read. Characters are well developed and entertaining.

Kitty was a stuck up b*tch. She had been used and trained by her father. His idea of pure blood and elitist attitude had rubbed off on her. After his death, she is banished to the neutral zone (Deal’s Gap, North Carolina).

As she has a pity party, her past catches up to her for an attitude adjustment.

You will feel sorry for this character as she is beaten and left for dead. If you are from the southern states, you will understand many social and physical descriptions. They bring the story closer to believable and home.

“Vacation my a**. More like indefinite exile, and to the neutral zone no less. The only people who belonged here where the half-breeds that no one knew what else to do with.” ~Kitty on her new home

Being chased into wolf territory, she finds trouble. Beaten and poisoned, she is found by some unsavory characters from the wolf clan.

Rafe finds and saves her. From the moment his eyes set on her, his soul knows she is his mate. Nature has finally sent him what he longed for…in the form of a cougar shifter.

‘Whatever darkness had brought her to his doorstep they would fight together. That’s what nature called for when she delivered your mate.’ ~Rafe realizing Kitty is his mate

Kitty is broken and weak. When she finally begins to heal, she can sense Rafe’s desire to claim her. Even her own body begins to betray her. Intense physical longing is present; it jumps off the pages.

“What are you planning to do that hasn’t already been done? I’ve been cast out, beaten, poisoned and left for dead. Give it your best shot, Romeo, but don’t f*#k it up.” ~Kitty to Rafe, challenging him

These characters get you laughing and cheering for them as a couple. Enemies can be mates? In Eliza Gayle’s world, they can, and boy do they couple!

Some of the sex scenes are intense and carnal. They make you blush as you read!

However, in the end the fact they are two different types of species causes problems and opinions to fly like fur.

“Snit? What the hell is a snit? I’m not some junior league would pretending to be human. I don’t know what kind of women you’re used to but cougars don’t do snits!” ~Kitty to Rafe

The world of these shifters will draw you in and make you want more. You won’t be able to put this down. In addition, you will want more of this exciting shifter series.
