Cat Benoit has finally escaped the past—and the man who was the source of her nightmares. She’s off the grid, underground but watchful, and creating a new life for herself in Texas, far from the torrid dangers of her native New Orleans. She’s safe. He’ll never find her this time. Cat has to believe that. It’s the only thing keeping her sane.
Yet she can’t escape the attention of Ridley Cromer, the instructor at the martial arts dojo where Cat takes lessons. She arouses the animal in Ridley—and something feral comes to life when their body heat rises. Cat is in no position to let her guard down with anyone, especially someone who could be endangered by her past. But Ridley has secrets of his own—secrets only Cat would understand. If she dares to trust him.
So What Did I Think Of Cat’s Lair by Christine Feehan?
This was an emotional story that took me a bit by surprise. I didn’t realize it would grab me the way it did! The chemistry between Ridley and Catalina quickly became strong and into this blazingly passionate romance.
The drama was good, surprising me at some points and holding my curiosity at what would happen next between Catalina and Ridley and how Catalina would continue to doge her past.
I found the characters to be interesting. I was really feeling Ridley’s sexy mysterious, passionate, dominant personality. Yea he was very possessive which had me razing my eyebrow but he was caring and very up front with Catalina about who he was and how he operated so it didn’t bother me too much.
Catalina was a cool character, I really liked that even though she was deeply attracted to Ridley she didn’t instantly fall in love and blindly trust him, which I was so happy about, especially how things went down. It took her time to build up trust and even like him as a person, making him work for it.
Now I did have some issues with the story, being that I wanted more drama between Ridley and Catalina and though I was very happy that in the beginning Catalina wisely and realistically questioned Ridley’s motives and intentions. I would have liked to see her challenge Ridley more like he did with her, a more battle of wills which I felt would have made things more exciting.
I liked the supernatural element with the shape-shifting leopards and their way of life and overall all I did end up really enjoying Cat’s Lair by Christine Feehan and would read more from the series.
