Once Upon a Tiger (Tiger Shifters #1) by Kat Simons


Heat Rating

Alexis Tarasova was trained by her uncle to be a tracker and being a female tiger she had to prove she could do the job as well as if not better than any man just to be given the position. Now the council wants her to participate in the mate run but she will kill the first male that tries. She only wants one tiger and he is outcast so she can have him or can she?

My compliments to the author on not having any missed editing issues. That being said we can get down to the nitty gritty of a nice review.

I like that Alexis is a strong character and enjoyed getting to know her and her personality. I also like that she can kick ass and still be a woman. I thought it was pretty cool that Victor let her fight her own fight until she started losing although she was only loosing because she let herself get distracted.

I really enjoyed the first bedroom scene where the author did a great job with the foreplay which was steaming even without total detail but the actual act was rather short and to the point but still flame worthy. Definitely worth the day it took for me to read.

There isn't really anything about this cover that stands out except maybe the title.

She’ll never run.

Among the tiger shifters, Alexis Tarasova is regarded as fierce and dangerous, with a reputation that would make even the most daring tiger think twice about challenging her. Female tiger shifters may be rare and the mating run a critical part of their species’s survival, but Alexis is the only female Tracker and will not back down, even at the threat of tiger law. She will not be forced to mate. So when a handful of males band together to force her to participate in the run, Alexis chooses to stand her ground and fight instead.

He's forbidden to run.

Outcast from the tiger shifters after a vicious childhood attack left him mute, Victor Romanov has never taken part in the mate run. He’s never particularly cared, though, since the woman he loves refuses to take a mate. However, when he learns Alexis may be in danger, all bets are off. Nothing will keep him from her side.

Together, they’re unmovable.

The chemistry between them burns wickedly hot and forges them into an unbeatable pair. Alexis knows that being with Victor means she will have to break another one of her people’s laws—a move that might push the tigers too far. But, for Victor, she will risk everything, including her life, and do what she thought she’d never do—run.
