This was my first book by Celia Kyle but the second book in her Shifter Rogues series. Jumping into the second book of a paranormal series is always a risk. Luckily, TIGER’S CLAIM stands alone well, even with its intricate plot and multitude of characters. This book follows Stella, a jaguar shifter with a vendetta, and Cole, a tiger shifter and member of a special ops team.
As a whole, I enjoyed the story. Cole and his team have a hilarious and slightly crude sense of humor. The plot, for the most part, moved at a nice clip and there was a good amount of action. I like the shifter world that Ms. Kyle has created, and I thought she explained it well throughout the story. This book was half shifter romance and half special teams operation and I think the two mixed really well.
The Cons: while I did enjoy Cole and Stella’s romance, I couldn’t really deal with Stella herself. Her impulsive and often selfish actions annoyed me to no end. I understand making mistakes, but she willfully puts others in danger for her own agenda and it left a bad taste in my mouth. There were also a few times where the plot lagged and the humor got in the way. I had to reread often because the jokes were overlaying critical plot points and I kept on getting lost.
Overall, I did like the book, and I will continue on in the series. I am hoping to pick up the first book and then continue on when the third is released. If you’re looking for a light, quick paranormal romance, this book is for you!
