Review: Tyger, Tyger Burning Bryght (Orion #1) by Cathryn Cade

Synopsis (via Goodreads):
As a novice interpreter aboard the space ship Orion, Calla Fellura is in uncharted territory. Especially when it comes to figuring out how to approach the ship’s sexy navigator, who seems to have no shortage of willing women vying for his attention.

Tryon Jag is an alpha male Tyger, one of the few who possess the instincts to guide a ship safely through the deadly Cattarus system. Handsome, wealthy, and of royal blood, Jag controls his universe—and most of the females in it—as easily as he navigates the Orion.

But when Jag unexpectedly undergoes his mating shift on board ship instead of safely on his home planet, he must have a woman or go mad with rage and lust. With an eco-saboteur somewhere aboard, there couldn’t be a worse time for him to lose his mind.

For the sake of duty, Calla forces herself into Jag’s lair. And finds herself blossoming into a true Tyger lily, a woman born to enchant a powerful beast.

The only woman who can save Jag—and the entire crew—from certain annihilation.
My Thoughts: Growing up completely immersed in sci-fi/fantasy books, I get a certain thrill when I get to read adult sci-fi.  Sexy, sexy adult sci-fi.  Yum.  Spaceships!  Shapeshifters!  Sex!  All in one compact package.  Life doesn't get any better than this.

Here I got a shapeshifting tiger/man, a wide-eyed female who ends up giving as good as she gets, an eco-terrorism subplot that elevated the story from just sci-fi erotica to something with a little depth, a couple of perverted voyeurs, and ... umm, sex in a navigation room.  Seriously?  It's everything I was looking for before I knew I was looking for it.  How awesome is that??

Sexy with a little dom/sub play (what?  He's a beast.  It happens.), I thoroughly enjoyed it.
