Description:
Charlie Ledbetter has a big problem. She doesn't like cats. In fact, she's allergic to them. And now she is one. . . sort of.
Caught in the middle of a vicious argument between two men at the pet store where she shops for her dog Pinky, Charlie doesn't just end up nipped in the fight when it's over -- she ends up having a horrible allergic reaction and much sneezing, wheezing and gulping Benadryl like it's tequila ensues.
But that's not even the half of it.
When one of the two men involved in the scuffle, Quinn Piljor, comes to apologize for his part in the scuffle, he brings his brother Luke with him. Tall, blond, sexy, off the chain hot Luke. A man Charlie's immediately attracted to. The brothers explain her little allergy problem can be solved with a ritual that takes place upon the full moon -- a sex ritual.
Crazy that, huh?
Charlie finds out what the Piljor brothers say really is true. In order to stop her violent allergic reaction to her new body's chemistry, her only shot involves having sex with Quinn.
But what does a girl do when the man she really wants to be with isn't the man she has to be with? Charlie Ledbetter has a big problem. She doesn't like cats. In fact, she's allergic to them. And now she is one. . . sort of.

About the author from the back of her book:
Dakota Cassidy found writing quite by accident and it's "been madness ever since." Who knew writing the grocery list would turn into this? Dakota loves anything funny and nothing pleases her more than to hear she's made someone laugh. She loves to write in many genres with a contemporary flair. Dakota lives with her two handsome sons, a dog and a cat. (None of them shape shift -- that we know of.)

My View:
Charlie is out shopping for her beloved dog when she gets in the middle of a scuffle between two men in the pet food store. Unknown to her, one of the men is a shapeshifting tiger. When he accidentally bites her, she starts showing signs of turning into a shapeshifting tiger herself. That might not be so bad if she wasn't deathly allergic to cats and her dog wasn't so afraid he wouldn't come out from under the bed.

So here she is with a problem and her new shapeshifting friends tell her there is one way to change that, but she has to have sex with the one who bit her. The only problem is she isn't the least bit attracted to him, but his brother. Just what is a girl to do, when the Benadryl isn't working? Her new friends have just the answer.

I've always loved Dakota Cassidy's style. She has a great whit and playful way with words. "Catnipped" is just one more fine example.
