Queen of Tarts Review of
by Misa Buckley
Tin Cat by Misa Buckley is a fun paranormal romance novella. I blazed through it and enjoyed every minute. The heroine, Amber, is snarky and brave. I loved that she was an unabashed geek with her own comic book shop to boot!
The fact that she is in a wheel chair is a recent adjustment for her. She has learned to be independent and cope but she doesn’t think guys still see her… just the chair. Her boyfriend before the accident left her when he found out her new reality. I felt her pain. I loved when her girl friend Sharon reminded her not everyone was like “Jeff the Jerk”.
Amber finds a stray cat out side her shop and rescues it. Not long after she adopts Cat a man comes into her shop. “Tall, lean, and leather-clad, he had a definite Blade vibe…” 😀 I laughed out loud when he told her his name’s Hunter Gray and she scoffs. I loved all the sci-fi references peppered throughout this story .
Gray tells her he’s from the future and the cat is a dangerous. I really liked Gray. He’s protective, strong and yet he is as wounded as Amber. he has suffered loss as well and is trying to atone for his past. There are delicious sparks between them and I liked that her disability was not a hindrance to his interest.
I loved the suspense element with the cybernetic cat and Gray trying to track down a time traveling bad guy. That kind of stuff sends my imagination soaring.
Like I said, I couldn’t put this story down. I was caught up in the adventure and romance. I loved watching Amber and Gray explore their feelings. I was right there with her as she was trying to protect her heart from being hurt any further by a man from the future.
A few of my fav lines…
♥ Obvious solution is obvious. I tapped my phone on the counter. “Okay then, Gray. I apparently have a cybernetic cat and you are hunting it. Or rather its owner, who is allegedly going to try rob the bank across the street. Did I leave anything out?”
“Yes.” He lifted a hand and removed the shades. His eyes were the color of chocolate, warm and inviting. Oh, Lord. “You omitted the part where the thief is from your future.”
“Of course I did.” I thought he was delusional. Or simply crazy. “It was the lack of a DeLorean that confused me.”
♥ Gray smoothed down the shirt. “Like I said—I studied the time, just in case I needed to fit in.”
“Well, you definitely fitted in this afternoon. God, I can’t believe Sharon tried to set us up.”
“Tried? I thought she managed.” The humor faded from his expression. “Or don’t you want to go out with me?”
♥ His smile was like the sun coming up. “Then it’s worth whatever happens,” he said,
I loved this novella! I embraced the element of seizing the day and not letting the past dictate your future… Also, the romance was hot. I recommend Tin Cat if you are in the mood for a sci-fi romance that’s full of snark and heart and courage.
