Still struggling with his recent breakup, Alexander runs headlong—literally—into a witch who leaves him far less than human. Now a wise-cracking cat with a taste for expensive clothes, he is forced to live with the ex he can't get over and help the man find someone who will finally make him happy.
Okay, I really don't use this word at all, but... this short story was fucking PRECIOUS.
Alex, the once-human housecat, was full of piss and vinegar. The consummate cat, nearly every word out of his mouth was pure snark. But not in a mean or hurtful way. Highly entertaining, though.
And Ethan was just a big, adorkable guy with a heart of gold, content to run his bakery, take care of his sisters, and oh yeah, spend all of his free time with a talking cat. Who wears designer clothes. And wants boots for Christmas.
The writing was funny and touching, without feeling that it was trying too hard. And the scene with the crow, God, I wanted a complete blow-by-blow on that one.
And when Alex convinced Ethan's suitor that the talking cat (wearing a Prada vest, thank you) is a bad-shrimp-induced hallucination... Priceless.
At only around 60 pages, I truly enjoyed every single word and wished this story were three times as long, so I'd rate this one very high, at 4.5 stars for pure, fluffy enjoyment alone.
My ARC copy of the story was provided by the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for a fair, unbiased review.
