Review: The Cat's Meow by Stacey Kennedy

Title: The Cat's Meow
Author: Stacey Kennedy
Source: Author Request
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Length: Novel
Release Date: December 13, 2012
Reviewer: Jasmyn

Libby is an Enchantress - a witch gifted by the Goddess to conjure spells.  When a magical presence is detected around a recent string of feline slayings, Libby takes the case to uncover the reasons behind the odd deaths.  Much to her displeasure, the coven also sends a sexy warlock, Kale, to assist her.

While having the muscle around proves to be useful, fighting the attraction between them is worse than a hex, especially considering Kale is keeping secrets.  But soon, Libby has bigger problems that the elusive warlock when her spells turn up clues that point to something far more sinister than slaughtered cats.

Now Libby has landed herself in the midst of an uprising.  She trusts no one and isn't safe - not from the warlocks stirring up trouble.  Not from the worrisome rebellion she can't escape.  And certainly not from Kale, who is weaving a very dangerous spell over her heart.

I loved loved loved Libby.  She was sassy with an attitude, tough enough to hold her own in a verbal sparring, and inventive with solutions to her nasty problems.  Kale made me mad - but I think he was supposed to.  Hard to warm up to a guy that doesn't tell you who he really is or what he's really doing - but man was he sexy.  The two are thrown together to investigate a series of ritual cat slayings and find themselves neck deep in a rebellion against everything they stand for.  Libby will need to get over her distrust of Kale and try to work with him (and not just stare at his ass).

A nicer thrill/mystery that threw me off the track enough to keep it very interesting with a surprising twist at the end for both Libby and even Kale (who thought he was prepared for everything).  I had a hard time putting it down, I just wish Kale had been a tiny bit more likable from the get go.
