Abandoned as a baby and forced to grow up way too fast, Kitten has learned to live and survive by her own unique code. When Kitten is at her lowest point and thinks she can’t carry on, she meets an extraordinary group of men who welcome her into their home and their hearts, showing her more kindness than she has ever known. What will happen when she finds out the secrets they keep? They may be more connected than they all thought when secrets about Kitten begin to surface as well.

My Thoughts

Last month after reading Trickery I kind of fall into a reverse harem phase. I don’t generally read a lot of stories with this genre (if you can call it that) because it hard to create an environment where this relationship type can work. But I loved Trickery so much that I immediately started to look for books with similar elements. That’s how I found this book.

I liked it a lot. It’s different and interesting, not really the roller coaster type of action fueled story but fantastic nonetheless. The plot mostly builds upon the relationship, the creating connections aspect of life with a really great, diverse set of characters. It’s long but surprisingly not boring at all. I was up all night reading because I couldn’t put it down, it just kept me engaged.

Kitten, the main characters is a bit of a contradiction. She has a photographic memory and acts more experienced than others but then she is extremely naïve and can’t understand a lot of the basic stuff. She is really simple and pure, has a childlike mentality. Despite her horrible childhood she didn’t became bitter or hard, she learned to apprentice the smallest things in life and see behind the surface. She saw the reasons behind people actions. Probably this was the thing that helped her most to barrel through the walls the guys build up around themselves. I generally liked her but her naiveté and social awkwardness was a bit annoying at times.
The guys are really interesting and all of them are different from the other. They all have really strong personalities but work well with each other. Remy the mysterious, dominant leader. Ash with his hard exterior, but with his protective teddy bear side. Finn the silent, smart kind.  Reed the artistic soul. Logan the crazy, mischievous, stylish one. Kellan the reserved but charming one. Tristan the funny and understanding type. And Jace the bad boy, womanizer. My favorites were Remy and Ash. The eight of them and Kitten created a strange dynamic which strangely worked exceptionally. The girl had something in common or something unique with each of them. However some instances I felt that the guys pushed her into intimate situations and kind of exploited her inexperience in regards of relationships. It bothered me a bit especially since she is only supposed to be 16.

The story is told mainly from Kitten point of view but some of the guys get their own chapters here and there too. It helps to get a window into the story supernatural side and a great addition to the book. Although the writing or more like the editing has a place to improve. There are a lot if spelling mistakes and even names get mixed up in it.

Plot wise there is not much to it. This is a laid back; get to know each other story with and exciting twist at the end. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the second book.
