Review: Warrior by Cheryl Brooks

Warrior (Cat Star Chronicles #2) by Cheryl Brooks
Synopsis (Goodreads):
Even near death, his sensuality is amazing...

Leo arrives on Tisana's doorstep a beaten slave from a near-extinct race with feline genes. As soon as Leo recovers his strength, he'll use his extraordinary sexual talents to bewitch Tisana and make a bolt for freedom...

She has only one chance to tame him...

Tisana, whose healing powers are legendary, already knows Leo's the one who can help her fulfill her destiny... she can't let him get away now. Forced together on a dangerous journey, Tisana must reveal all of her powers, and Leo must give all of himself to gain his freedom...
My Thoughts: I'm sad to say that this one is probably my least favorite of the series. I can't quite pinpoint what doesn't work for me but I'm always ready to ditch Leo and Tisana and get onto the next book about halfway through. On the plus side, sexy feline aliens who like to love their women like no other species in the galaxy. YAY!

I do like Leo. He's got the sexy slave thing. He's willing to fight to protect his woman. While I can understand his "we have to live for the moment mentality" because of his slave status, it always bugs me a bit that he seemed so unwilling to fight to stay with Tisana. Yes, he's a slave, but for such a formidable warrior, he seems rather passive at times. Tisana herself is amusing but she's very ... resigned, for lack of a better word, to being alone. She expects the man who fathers her child to leave her. It makes for an odd dynamic in their relationship when they both want to be together but neither seems willing to TRY very hard to get to that point. To give Tisana her due, she does attempt to get Rafe to give and/or sell Leo to her but... I don't know. I can't explain it.

While this isn't my favorite, I still enjoyed the whole "I will give you joy unlike any you've ever known" vibe. Those cats sure do know how to make their ladies purr. Oh, and hey! The cats purr also! It's a purr-a-palooza!

I suddenly want to start cracking jokes about pussies and how they like to be petted. So, I'll stop here. Onto the next book!

    1. *is stumped* I know I had a play on words with how the man is the pussy and he likes to be petted. WHICH IS ENTIRELY TRUE! Because he's, you know, a feline alien. It's been TOO LONG since I wrote this. I don't remember! Dangit!
