synopsis 2

Girl gets off cab, boy nearly runs her over.

Kit Torres can’t believe her awful luck when she’s assigned to babysit a motorcycling superstar for her boss. But sexy sparks fly when he teaches her all about the finer aspects of control. Can Kit keep her cool when the race starts to heat up?

Fab Magnani lives on the edge of disaster — he makes a good living out of it as a pro racer. Will his instincts for squeezing out of danger serve him when he comes face to face with an Puerto Rican spitfire who takes an instant dislike to him?

review

It was a love story the other way around. Sex then talk. At first, Kit was in it to get that contract signed and a promotion. She exercised a great deal of control and would basically do anything to get the job done, including reluctantly baby siting MotoGP racer Fab Magnani. And although she hated him in the beginning, her attraction was like a kid staring at a marshmallow. She just couldn’t help herself.

MotoGP racer Fab  has two weeks to decide if he wants to sign with C& C and he’s got Kit to court him and take him around town. It was instant physical attraction for him, but Kit seems to hate him. Something about him almost killing her with his bike.

Kit, is a very determined character. Born to a 80’s hippie mom, it was her feeling of weightlessness being rootless that caused her to crave for control. She is the result oriented type of person, at the cost of losing her people skills. And meeting Fab has caused her world to go a little crazy.

Fab starts off as a Diva but as the story goes, he’s had his own fair share of troubles and motorcycle racing is his way out.  I love how his outgoing personality hides that much control in him. And I do love men in control. (Plus points for the motorcyle).

Although this is a novella, I think Mori could’ve worked a little bit more conflict into it with Kit’s controlling personality (and her initial dislike for Fab) and Fab’s almost free-spirit type. A little bit more tug and pull would’nt hurt. Regardless She did great work on Kit and Fab’s backstory, giving the reader a better understanding of what makes them tick as an individual and click as a couple. I also love the physical attraction between Kit and Fab. It was instant and undeniable. (My favourite scene was when Fab saw Kit for the first time). The powerplay between the two of them really worked for me. She’s also given them both great supporting characters who helped nudge the story along.

Bottom line, Tame the Kitten is a great and quick read. Bianca Mori held me with her story and her characters. She’s made Kit and Fab so amazingly cute, with off the charts chemistry and steamy scenes that burned through my copy.

Diana Gabaldon, one of my favourite authors once said about her books, “If you’re unsure where to start, open the book anywhere and read three pages. If you can put it down again, I’ll give you a dollar.” This is something I’ve been doing for sometime now, specially with new-to-me authors. Well, Ms. Mori, I don’t think I’ll be getting a dollar, but you’re definitely getting a fan.
