To Hiss or To Kiss
by Katya Armock
Chloe can “talk” to animals…so why can she hear the thoughts of this hot, green-eyed man?
Abandoned by her mother and raised by a father who’d given up on life, Chloe doesn’t let anyone get close. Lucky for her, she can communicate with animals—telepathically. Her long hours at the animal shelter help her cope with the stress, and the animals are the only people she needs. But when a suspected dog-fighting ring comes to her attention, Chloe decides to do a little spying. And in her rush to win the dogs’ trust, she almost gets herself caught.
Until a sexy stranger intervenes, and she finds she can overhear his thoughts. She’s never been able to hear people, and this man’s about as sexy as she’s ever seen. It’s more than intellectual curiosity that drives her to discover his secret: he’s a jaguar shape-shifter, and the presence of this cat among the dogs might be a bit too much to handle. But the animal attraction is just too hot to resist, and the passion between them makes both the sparks—and the fur—fly…
I really liked the premise of this story. The hero hot hunky and protective. The heroine used to going her own way. Chloe is a prickly thing. She really does tend to bumble along, offending without meaning to. Both Chloe and Jorge have issues and tend to bring out the best and worst in each other. Luckily, being able to read each other, they manage to patch things up time and again, in and out of bed!
I really would have liked to see more of Jorge's side in To Hiss or to Kiss as he is just the kind of hero I like. An enjoyable book, I plan on checking out more of Katya Armock's stories.
