Seconds before a showdown with werewolf Dante Morgan, who owns a property that by rights should belong to her, she goes into heat. Not a simple event for a lynx shifter. No, she’s doomed to weeks of frustration that can only be soothed by frequent rolls in the hay—or her hand. Unfortunately, Dante accidentally witnesses the latter.Left shaken and highly aroused in the snow, Dante can’t believe he’s attracted to the woman who drives him crazy, and not in a good way. Worse, his father has issued an ultimatum. Marry, or abdicate his place as pack leader. On the other hand, it’s the perfect leverage. Lilly will get her land…in exchange for a wedding ring and all the sexual satisfaction she can handle.Marry Dante? No doubt he’s a poster boy for Hunks ’R’ Us, but he’s rude, arrogant and Lilly’s sworn enemy. Not to mention the thought of losing her independence is frightening as hell.When they find themselves falling victim to their own charade, though, it’s anything but hell. It’s heaven, and the last thing either of them wants. The real thing. Product WarningsThis book contains redneck werewolves, inconvenient hormones, and a whole new use for cat toys. Uncontrollable meowing may occur....

    3.5 stars. Adult Review for erotic content.My initial impression was off about Cat Scratch Fever. I'd assumed by reading the first chapter that this was pretty much a PWP (porn without plot), which would have been fine. I just so happened to need a good day or two of light reading before taking on a couple of more serious reads that I have lined up.Surprisingly, there was more than just sex. The story was cute too. So cute, that I'd actually wished there had been more length involved (no, that was not a bad pun). The little tidbits of information surrounding the shifter world would have been interesting if they had been expanded upon. I wanted to know more about their day-to-day living as a pack.There was a little bit of humor, banter and even some dirty talk. The sex was sexy and sweet, and I'm always down to read another twist on "enemies turned lovers." I won't fault a little bit of cheese (lingo such as "sweet mother of whiskers"), or the falling in love practically overnight. You can't expect too much time spent on world or character building with a shorter novella.This was a fun read, although nothing memorable. I'll forget it by tomorrow but that's okay. It entertained me in the moment and that's all I wanted.Want to see a pissed off werewolf? Start bating him about the size of his wiener.

    Oh, Jodi Redford, you had me at redneck werewolves. I would have been perfectly content with that alone but you had to throw in cat toys and a tag line that tickled my funny bone. Clearly you've been breaking into my house again in the dead of night (like a shifter-obsessed ninja) and rifling through my brain. This is getting very awkward. I might as well just give you a key and invite you in for tea and cookies.*ahem* Right. I'm not really sure if this needs to be said at this point but I REALLY LIKED THIS BOOK! I mean, it has a sassy cat shifter who enjoyed a little bout of semi-private self pleasuring, a hunky werewolf who offered to even the playing field by taking himself in hand (heh!), and a passel of redneck werewolves! Plus, it's in the snow! Do you guys know how much I love books set in the snow? Okay, so my kink is actually when the hero and heroine get stranded in a snowstorm and have to be in close physical contact with one another while fighting their wild attraction (what? It's a very specific plot device that I happen to enjoy) but I am perfectly happy with two shifters frolicking in the snow.Lilly is independent and mouthy. She knows what she wants and she's determined to get it. Unfortunately for Dante, the thing she wants in the beginning is his land. She's tenacious and pig-headed. She might be attracted to Dante but she studiously ignores it because wanting a redneck werewolf is not part of her game plan.For his part, Dante thinks Lilly is insufferable. He doesn't want to want her but once he catches her unintentional starring role in Cat Shifter Masturbatory Theater he can't stop thinking about her. And things heat up from there.Wonderfully written and ridiculously fun, this book will have you looking high and low for a redneck werewolf of your very own. Cat toys not included.-Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal

    Well, this was a pleasant little surprise! I was under the impression that this book was gonna be a little too Young Adult for me... lol, I was TOTALLY wrong on that one.Chapter 1? Masturbation with some voyeurism.Chapter 2? More masturbation. More voyeurism.Chapters 3-8? SexsexsexsexsexsexLast few chapters? Okay, there was a little plot here. Not much.This is not a complaint. Because, you know... I like sex!(On an unrelated note, apparently I don't know how to spell masturbation OR voyeurism. Marry me, spell check.)Anyway, Lilly and Dante are those people that love to hate each other. Unfortunately this book is too short to really delve into that part of their relationship. But it's very apparent that they've never gotten along well. So Lilly needs to buy some land from Dante for her pack, the Lynchats. They're kitties. Dante doesn't want a bunch of pussies hanging around his wolf-den. Masturbation gets involved. Suddenly they want each other. Something about Dante needs to mate or his father will pair him with some crazyass wolf bitch. So they decide to get married. She gets her land, he gets his freedom. I know, I know. It's nothing spectacular. But they have great chemistry together, and Lilly is a snarky little bitch. That's always fun, when done well.I don't read too many shifter stories because I feel like the ones I've read get really bogged down in all the lore. This one doesn't. It's hot, fun, and totally worth the read.The ending was seriously abrupt, though. Everything was resolved, but there could have been a little more cool-down. Meh... whatever. I liked it. Go Jodi!!

    Rating: 3.5 Stars I'll admit I didn't know what to expect when beginningCat Scratch Fever.I was looking for a quick, easy read and never did I once think that the novella I picked up would be one I would fall in love with. Although it has been two days since I finished this short story, the characters, their dilemmas, and their love story still remain fresh in my mind from thinking about them so often.Cat Scratch Feversurprised in every positive way and I only hope that Jodi Redford has a sequel in the works becauseI need more.Dante and Lilly have hated each other ever since they first met and now, with Lilly sent to negotiate land, their hatred has only intensified. However, they find themselves in an unlikely predicament, forced to marry in order to get what the other wants. Yet, what neither of them count on is falling in love...I think it's important to know thatCat Scratch Feverhas its fair share of smut and graphic sex scenes, but what truly stood out to me in this novella was the romance. It's hot and steamy, but the love story itself is slow-to-build and takes its time to form. Perhaps what I loved most about this short tale is that Dante and Lilly didn't realize they were in love with each other untilafterthey had seen the worst of each other. It was only once Dante truly understood Lilly, her need to be independent and forthcoming, and only after he had learnt of her parent's rocky marriage that he realized he was in love with her and vice versa. Redford truly put that emphasis onlovebecause yes, these two were attracted to each other, but love took a little longer. Another aspect of this novella that I instantly came to like was its setting.Cat Scratch Fevertakes place in a world similar to ours, only the people can shape-shift. Dante himself is a werewolf and Lilly can shift into a lynx. I found myself intrigued by the politics of their situation, the pack dynamics amongst the werewolves, and the intricacies of accepting Lilly as their leader's mate. In fact, I wish that this novella had been expanded into a full-fledged story, incorporating more details of this fascinating world and its politics. If not a sequel, I'm really hoping Redford writes a story based in this realm sometime soon because I love it! Either than wishing this story was longer, I had only one qualm with this book: the ending. Although I loved the ending and thought it was very cute, I also felt as if it wastooabrupt. I was expected another chapter or at least an epilogue afterwards but was sadly greeted with nothing. Thus, I felt as if I had been ever-so-slightly cheated of a completely wrapped-up ending. I still had questions swirling in my mind, wondering how Dante and Lilly's unlikely relationship would work, how the politics of their situation would affect their romance, and exactly how Lilly's role in the pack would affect them. I also wish there had been more than one scene with Dante and Lilly shifted into their animal forms. So, although I absolutely adored this story, the ending came as an ultimate disappointment. Nevertheless,Cat Scratch Feveris a novella I would heartily recommend to anyone looking for a fun, scintillating read that keeps you on your toes (and someone who doesn't mind smut). Redford managed to earn my respect by putting forth an immense amount of character depth, world-building, and plot development in such a short span of pages, so I will definitely be hoping and looking out for her future releases! :)

    It should be no surprise that I am a fan of paranormal romance. There was a time when that genre for me was synonymous with vampire romance. I have since broadened my horizons, so to speak. Stepping out of my ‘vampire’ comfort zone led me to venture into the vast paranormal world. Who knew that there were so many to chose from? There are a few authors who I know will never disappointment me with a unique twist and just enough heat to make things interesting. Jodi Redford is high on that list of authors. That being said, when she sent out requests to review a new book, how could I possibly refuse? Obviously I couldn’t. ;)I wasn’t really sure what to expect from Cat Scratch Fever. I’ve read all the books in Jodi’s That Old Black Magic Series and was very familiar with her style of writing and the characters. That series mixes the shifting world with the world of magic and the symbiotic relationship between the two works very well. Cat Scratch Fever is centered strictly around the shifter world, and guess what? It works too!From the first chapter this book sucked me in. It wasn’t just the heat and tension, and trust me, there was a LOT of heat and tension, but that’s not the only thing that kept me turning pages. The draw and connection between the characters, the mystery, the loyalty of the family and friends and Lilly and Dante’s ultimate love for each other kept me reading. I loved the twists and turns and even though the inherent, obvious evil wasn’t present there was still enough action and good vs bad to make things interesting.The only complaint that I had at the end of Cat Scratch Fever is that I wanted more. Hopefully Jodi has more planned for Lilly and Dante because they have turned into one of my favorite shifter couples.

    This was one of the most exciting, hilarious, and fun Paranormal Erotic Romances I have ever read! Not only is Ms. Redford and amazing writers, but she is incredibly witty and clever. I think I spent a good part of the first half of the book laughing my ass off. The way she brings her characters to life with the dialogue just does it for me. I love when characters have wit, when they can open up, and be real. People don’t communicate like robots, they snark, they bitch, they verbally attack other people. It was all just that damned good that I was in it. I was sold hook line and sinker once we go through the first interaction with Lilly and Dante.It wasn’t just the characters that made this story impossible not to love, it was the whole meat behind the story development. You know that shit was going to hit the fan, you just didn’t know when, and you didn’t know how. I had an idea who would be the catalyst, but when it came I was like “OH HELL NO!” This story was fast paced and didn’t hold back on you. The story was brilliantly executed, the conflict was believable, and the sex was so super hot I didn’t know what to do with myself once Lilly and Dante started to go at it.I go this book for review, was encouraged to read it when it came up as a book of the month, and then finally dove in. I am so glad I did, yet my bank account is going to suffer as I slowly devour each one of Ms. Redford’s books!Highly recommend for readers of all genres because you are going to get a little bit of everything from this amazing, sexy read!

    Charnel's review posted on Guilty PleasuresEnemies become lovers, one of my favorite kinds of stories. The more determined the characters are to not fall in love…the harder they fall. I Love it.Cat Scratch Fever starts with Lilly going into heat and Dante catching her trying to cool off. Her irritation at being caught is magnified by the fact that Dante and Lilly have a history of animosity towards each other. Now that Dante stumbled upon her he can't get his hormones under control. He comes up with a plan to help him save his ALPHA status, and their passions ignite and they find out there is a fine line between love and hate.The end left me wanting more, but I do feel like the couple will have the greatest love in the future. I have been in a bit of a book slump lately, not really reading, not to happy with what I have read but I really like this book, the characters, the love, and the promise of love to come.Cat Scratch Fever is a fun, light, sexy read; a good book to pick you up.

    What a fun read! I found myself grinning and laughing while reading the story. Along with the laughs and grins were some really hot sex scenes between Dante and Lilly! My only complaint- It ended to soon. (The story not the sex scenes ;) I would have liked to hear more about these two. This could be a great start to a new series with the secondary characters. Even continuing on with Dante and Lilly as they navigate pack politics and introduce a Cat into a Wolf's world (with some mindblowing sex along the way) would be a must buy for me now. If you enjoy a lighthearted sexy romp with a little intrigue thrown in too, give this book a try. I'm glad I did!

    Oh, my. What did Kelly say? I believe it was: "Cat Shifter Masturbatory Theater." So true.Cat Scratch Fever just made me laugh. In the best way possible. But laughing wasn't the only reaction I had. I did have a reaction (or two or more) that involved fanning myself a lot.Simply put, this was a great afternoon diversion. Once again, Jodi does it best.

    I've enjoyed this cat and dog story very much. It was a fast-paced story and such a page-turner, the only time I took a break is to get a snack! *LOL* Seriously, not only was it a hot read but it was also romantic and hilarious to boot. I really really loved it. My first Jodi Redford story and wanted some more! ;-)

    I liked how the two MC's were bickering like 'cats and dogs'. Dante is a wolf shifter and Lilly is a Lynx shifter. They are great in the sack together and things slowly build into love. I loved the action near the end of the story and only wish it was longer at the end. Maybe an epilogue. This would make a great series as there were some good secondary characters and lots of family members.

    Na tuhle knihu jsem narazila naprostou náhodou. Líbil se mi název a provedení obálky. Nějak jsem ovšem nebyla připravená na to, co jsem dostala. Vodítkem měl být už samotný název, jehož význam mi vlastně došel až po dočtení knihy... přišla jsem si jako úplný pitomec :D Víte co, měla mě varovat už ta anotace... kterou jsem si moc nečetla.Lilly patří ke kočkám, Dante zase k vlkům, nesnáší se už od prvního pohledu. Ona chce pozemek, který její dědeček prohrál v kartách a on chce mít svůj vlastní klid. Ona s ním nepřestává bojovat, on se snaží vyhnout svazku s šílenou ženskou, který mu jeho otec domluvil výměnou za pořádnou dávku peněz. Ona udělá všechno, aby půdu získala zpět, on cokoliv, aby mu jeho smečka zůstala. Jedna příliš intimní chvíle je ovšem dovede do slepé uličky, z níž existuje jen jedna cesta ven. A bude výhodná pro ně oba.Sice už mám nějakou tu erotickou knihu za sebou, nic mě ovšem nedokázalo připravit na pravou knihu paranormal romance. Tady mě autorka odrovnala už v první kapitole. Vedle toho se může jít erotická kniha asi klouzat. U nás se sice už klasické paranormal romance vyskytují (Bratrstvo černé dýky, Noční lovci), ale já je zase tak často nečtu. Respektive jsem si na jejich styl asi mírně odvykla. Přece jenom čtu docela obsáhlou žánrovou směsku. Nejspíš proto mě už v první kapitole pořádná sexuální akce málem přizabila.Ony totiž paranormal romance většinou takové jsou. Nebo tedy alespoň ty kratší, v zahraničí jich vydávají ročně hromady a většinou je čítávají dospělejší ženské, spíše v domácnosti, či zasloužilé maminky. Na tom není nic špatného, počítám, že dokud mě bude bavit všechno to, co čtu, budu v tom pokračovat ještě dlouho. Účel těchto knih je naprosto jasný - jakés takés seznámení s postavami, nastíněním děje a hups na sex. A zase hups na sex. A zase...V podstatě nejde ani o nic jiného. Oba dva hrdinové jsou sice sympaťáci, ale normální zápletky si ani pořádně užívat nemůžete, protože se toho moc nedovíte. Když už se ke konci uděje něco akčního, skončí to dřív, než to vůbec začne. Což je škoda. V rámci žánru je to ovšem normálka, takže se není čemu divit, ani nad čím ohrnovat nos. Když to nebudete brát příliš vážně, pobavíte se.Podobné věci obvykle nevyhledávám, ale znáte mě. Co mě nebaví teď, k tomu si možná najdu cestu v budoucnu. Kdysi jsem koulila oči i na Noční lovce, při čtení erotiky jsem byla červená pomalu až na prdeli a ani jsem neměla takovou slabost pro dystopické scifárny. Časy se mění a člověk by měl zkoušet nové věci.-------------Reakce po dočtení knihy------------Tak tohle jsem vážně nečekala. Tady mě autorka odrovnala už v první kapitole. Vedle toho se může jít erotická kniha asi klouzat. Účel téhle knihy je naprosto jasný, jakés takés seznámení s postavami, nastíněním děje a hups na sex. A zase hups na sex. A zase...Myslela jsem, že mě už nic nedokáže překvapit a že jsem na všechno připravená. Na skutečné paranormal erotic romance ještě asi připravená nejsem. A to i ty erotické knihy nejsou žádný čajíček. Vedle tohodle ale můžou blednout závistí.Ani pořádně nevím, proč tomu dávám 3 hvězdy. Asi za ten sex. Protože jinak to bylo naprosto padlé na hlavu. Naprosto. A ten podivně useknutý konec nechápu :D Jako proč to nemělo žádný normální dovětek? Co jsem to proboha přečetla... O co, že se k něčemu podobnému zase brzy vrátím :D

    Poor Lilly, how shocking to discover the man she loathes has caught her trying to relief herself while in heat. On her way to meet with Dante the heat cycle begins and what's worse...she left he herbal medicine back home. Left to deal with it on her own, she pulls over and takes matters into her own hands, only to have Dante come wandering after he can smell her. She takes to calling him a few choice words before barreling away in her SUV. Lilly is a lynchat - a human-lynx shifter. She is trying to secure 60 acres of land which are part of Dante's family land so her organization can create a sanctuary/ retreat for them. Not shocking is that Dante is being a stubborn arrogant pig towards her request and dishes out all the dirt he can to aggravate her, and it's working.It's right about now they get into the fun as she calls him out and what does a man do, but oblige. I couldn't believe he falls for it and decides to let her see for herself that he's got good sausage meat. *snickers* To bad it's around that time Dante's father comes wandering in on them. Lilly leaves in a hurry to let the father sun duo have their heated conversation. This is where the ultimatum gets issued - Marry/Mate or lose his place as the packs Alpha. That and the short time line - one week.The next series of events is what gets things moving between Lilly and Dante - She gets caught in a tree, sprains her ankle, Dante comes to the rescue but orders her to stay put. It is after this he discovers for himself Lilly is the alternative mate he needs to still hold his place as alpha and not marry the knifing bitch next door- Anna Gifford. His plan - play the good dog and kiss up to Lilly - which means giving her what she wants...the 60 acres of land for their retreat.Now comes the fun part, getting her and both their families to believe their false love story and that they are getting married. Not as easy as it looks even with things starting out as saucy as they did. Dante goes in for the move and lets her loud-mouthed inner slut out. She gets into some trouble with some of the local pack before Dante chivalrously rescues yer, again. This gets her claim in with his brother Shane, but the rest is yet to play out. Soon enough they come to see the other family, Theo, Jamie and Tess...and soon shortly there after his father.Things are much easier for Lilly's family in meeting with her sister Kinley and her mother. Both readily accept Dante and he falls in with them easily and Lilly's a bit shocked by Dante and how well he gets along with them. It was after they get back that things go from bad to worse. I won't spoil the ending as I was FLOORED by the turn of events. I have to say that I really loved Jodi's writing style. I loved how I had a love/hate relationship with Dante and either wanted to shag or smack the SOB for his trickery in getting Lilly all riled up. I loved Lilly's strong character and her persistence in bettering her organization. These two complimented each other perfectly and really are the epitome of the "opposites attract" expression. I'm glad I took a gander and gave her book a try. She's got a new fan with me and I am putting her on my Authors to DIE for list. A Solid 5 stars for Cat Scratch Fever!

    Teaser: "I have a proposition for you." "If it has anything to do with whipped cream and handcuffs, I'm not interested." Hoo boy. Was that ever a fat, hairy lie. Dante's eyes darkened as he licked his lips. "Not what I originally had in mind, but now that you mention it..."She stacked her arms over her chest-as much out of frustration as to hide the perky saluting of her traitorous nipples. "Could you please keep your dirty mind on track?" "You're the one who brought up the whipped cream and handcuffs, kitten." She narrowed her eyes. "What did you just call me?" He chuckled. "Don't get your fur in a tizzy. I could have said pussy." "You would," she grumbled.My Thoughts:The blurb pretty much tells the story; the fun is in getting there. "Cat Scratch Fever" is funny, sweet, sexy and steamy. There were a few times I found myself rolling my eyes or raising my eyebrows, but otherwise I really enjoyed it. This scene had me going "WTF?" Being shifters, they didn't have to worry about human STDs, so condoms were strictly to prevent pregnancy amongst their kinds. But an unpleasant allergy to latex made condoms out of the question for her. "I can do even better than that. I have an IUD."So shifters can't get STDs but they have allergies? That doesn't make sense to Lilly use an IUD as a preference? Why make it a medical necessity? It's a minor matter overall.The other eye rolling moment was this thought by Lilly: Because right now, Dante and his wonder cock were too potent to resist.It made me laugh even as I rolled my eyes. "Wonder cock"? Really? Sounds more like she's talking about a BOB.I also thought that Anna's actions at the end of the story were a bit over the top but I was expecting her to do something. Those moments aside, I enjoyed the romance and the sex scenes. And the humor. There's lots of humor, but it doesn't overshadow the story or the characters. The story moves quickly, as does the romance. It's not quite a friends to lovers trope, but pretty close. Dante and Lilly have been acquainted for several years. When Dante proposes to Lilly, she's resistant at first but it offers her a solution to her land problem and after their mutual masturbation scenes, she finds herself attracted to Dante. To his surprise, he's attracted to Lilly. "Maybe I was wrong about Lilly all these years." Had he been? Truthfully, he'd been all too willing to only see what he'd perceived to be her pain-in-the-ass qualities. And mostly that'd been due to his frustration over her determination to get him to sell the land. But was Lilly's dedication to the lynchats' cause any different than his commitment to his pack? Not really, when you got down to it. Want a fun, sexy, quick read? Then you need to read "Cat Scratch Fever".I received a Kindle book from the author for review.

    Originally posted at: http://whippedcream2.blogspot.com/201...Cat Scratch Fever is Jodi Redford’s newest paranormal romance, and it is a treat. The world she has created is fun and enticing. I like this locale, with the snow and forest and wide-open spaces filled with lots of redneck werewolves and lynx cat shifters. The characters are well crafted and the dialog is fun and sarcastic and totally filled with double entendres at times. I love the verbal sparring between Lilly and Dante, and the ever-escalating attraction bringing them closer all the time. And Chevy, Dante’s dog, is a real character too.Lilly Prescott is determined to convince Dante Morgan to sell her the sixty acres of land she wants for the Lynchat Foundation retreat. Unfortunately, just before the meeting with Dante, Lilly’s cat hormones send her into heat, and cause a very embarrassing episode by the side of the road: an incident witnessed by, of all people, Dante Morgan himself. Dante is ready to deny Lilly’s request again, when his father issues an ultimatum-Dante has one week to marry, or forfeit the leadership of the pack. Dante is determined not to marry the female wolf hand picked for him by his father, and offers Lilly a proposition. Marry him in a mating ceremony, and he will give her the land as a wedding gift. It doesn’t matter that they hate each other, right? Lilly Prescott is strong, determined to have her way, and smart as well. Unfortunately, she has a slight problem with hormones, and gets caught unawares in a very compromising position by the one man/wolf that makes her crazy. I love Lilly, with her smart mouth and snarky attitude, and her determination to get the land she is so focused on.Dante Morgan is determined to keep the pack safe from the machinations of his father and the Giffords. He is strong, gorgeous, and sexy beyond belief, and smart enough to know mating with his father’s choice would be bad news for the pack. I loved watching as Dante’s attraction for the sexy Lynchat became a bit of an obsession, and blossomed into so much more.There are some wolf politics here, with a clash between Dante and his father becoming inevitable. When trouble comes to stop the growing passion, and the wedding, Dante and Lilly are both in danger, and Dante must find a way to save Lilly, and stop his father and the Giffords from ruining the pack and Dante’s life. There are a couple of very hot bedroom scenes in this, and the play between Lilly and Dante heats up quickly once they stop fighting the inevitable. I recommend this for a cool evening, but keep the ice water near.

    To read this review and others like it check out my site at www.homelovebooks.com I've held back on reading a lot of urban fantasy lately, but this was more on the novella side of thing and I had a strong desire to find a good shifter book. I've always love shifter books, from the moment I opened Rachel Vincent's shifter series I was hooked, and I'm always on the hunt for new shifter book. More than that though I love with the two romantic interests have history of contention (remember how much Mercy and Adam used to but heads in Patty Briggs' Mercy Thompson series, who doesn't love that). So one read of this synopsis and I was hooked, plus I don't think I have ever not liked a book from Samhain so I knew this was a pretty good bet for me. My biggest problem with this book was that it was too short or wasn't a series, I loved the characters and totally didn't want the book to end. First and foremost I thought the push pull of the relationship between Lilly and Dante. I think what made their relationship even better was that while they were both shifters, he is a werewolf and she is a lynx, so while their is some common ground between them because they are shifters, they don't necessarily understand the culture behind the their respective groups, which makes things interesting.So Lilly wants land her family seemingly lost in a poker game to Dante's family, she wants to buy the land and she isn't taking no for an answer. Only Dante is so not saying yes. Add in the fact that Lilly is in heat, it only serves to make things more complicated, and suddenly Lilly and Dante, who used to be rivals are suddenly being pulled together by some magnetic force they can't escape. Dante comes up with a plan to solve his own pack problems by mating with Lilly and he'll give Lilly the land she wants if she agrees. If this doesn't sound like a recipe for conflict, you'd be wrong.Part of what I liked about this book was that Lilly and Dante somehow managed to be strong as a pair, in spite of their rivalry, once they come together they stand strong. It's all the other people in their lives who make things complicated. There are some great scenes between Lilly and Dante, definitely hot and heavy, and a fun read. The pacing is great in this book and I didn't put it down once. I hope Jodi writes more books like this because I would definitely read them, if you like hot and heavy shifters then this is a great read for you!

    The story wasn't long enough for me, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.The Word Count: 42,085I would say the Heat Index was a  4The only thing that I did not like out of the whole story was the ending. I didn't like how it just stop. It was to abrupt ?This Description was why I got the book:Who says a wolf can’t make a pussycat purr?Perfect timing has never been Lilly Prescott’s long suit. Seconds before a showdown with werewolf Dante Morgan, who owns a property that by rights should belong to her, she goes into heat. Not a simple event for a lynx shifter. No, she’s doomed to weeks of frustration that can only be soothed by frequent rolls in the hay—or her hand. Unfortunately, Dante accidentally witnesses the latter.Left shaken and highly aroused in the snow, Dante can’t believe he’s attracted to the woman who drives him crazy, and not in a good way. Worse, his father has issued an ultimatum. Marry, or abdicate his place as pack leader. On the other hand, it’s the perfect leverage. Lilly will get her land…in exchange for a wedding ring and all the sexual satisfaction she can handle.Marry Dante? No doubt he’s a poster boy for Hunks ’R’ Us, but he’s rude, arrogant and Lilly’s sworn enemy. Not to mention the thought of losing her independence is frightening as hell.When they find themselves falling victim to their own charade, though, it’s anything but hell. It’s heaven, and the last thing either of them wants. The real thing. Warning: This book contains redneck werewolves, inconvenient hormones, and a whole new use for cat toys. Uncontrollable meowing may accur. What else can you say but WOW I need to read this book. :-)

    I liked this book but there was something really off about it. For instance, there was not much emphasis on the world building. Everywhere the characters went, there were either werewolves or lynchats, no mention about human beings. I couldn't make out if the characters lived in a normal world or somewhere else with minimal rate of human existence. Well, the world building is one of the most insignificant part of this book, so I guess it doesn't really matter. Another thing that ticked me off was the sudden admittance of Dante being in love. I felt that it was too sudden. Lilly falling in love with Dante was also sudden. Lilly admitted that she was in love at the spur of the moment during a conversation with her sister. Even though this was a short book, a quick read, I felt that the story had dragged out a little bit more than necessary. There were also parts in the middle where I found myself growing bored of their same sequential foreplay. I loved how the book started off but the abrupt ending resulted in disappointment. I give this book three stars for the likeable characters because despite what I thought of it in the end, I cared for them. One star for a strong, feminist Lilly. One star for a charming alpha werewolf, Dante. And another star for both their contrasting characters that managed to compliment each other.

    Cat Scratch Fever is Jodi Redford's newest paranormal romance, and it is a treat. It is raging with hot-blooded shifter fervor. The world she has created is fun and enticing. I like this locale, with the snow and forest and wide-open spaces filled with lots of redneck werewolves and lynx cat shifters. The characters are well crafted and the dialog is fun and sarcastic. I love the verbal sparring between Lilly and Dante, and the ever-escalating attraction bringing them closer all the time. And Chevy, Dante's dog, is a real character too. It's a mighty good time when arch nemesis' come together for some rip-roaring fun. Sparks fly when Lilly and Dante are together. I could not get enough of this funny and passionate couple. Dante's siblings are hysterical I love how they rib Dante. I will never again be able to look at a cat toy without laughing. Cat Scratch Fever is a swift and scorching novel.

    After the first chapter, I thought this would be mostly erotica with little plot, but after the first chapter, there was actually a story, which I enjoyed. Dante and Lilly have made it an art to fight each other. She wants some land from him, which his father got in a poker game and he has been refusing her for some time. She is persistent and comes back to try to convince him, but on this visit they discover and attraction to each other which builds to more. Lilly has a hard time trusting men in general, due to her parents relationship, and Dante also has a contentious relationship with his father. As Lilly and Dante get to know each other, they address and deal with these issues. I enjoyed the banter between Dante and and Lilly and enjoyed watching them come to realize their feelings for each other.

    This was a solid book. I had never read any book like this before so I was apprehensive. Lilly reminded myself of me. She was independent and really didn't need a man. She had seen her parents' relationship/marriage and decided she never wanted to be in that situation. And sometimes I find myself in heat and wanting to stop on the side of the road to pleasure myself...lol. I love Dante!!!! I love the little nicknames he was would give her. I wish it was this easy to be with a man that is supposedly your enemy. I know all this happened in a span of a couple of weeks but I can tolerate it. This book kept me interested. I liked it.

    This was such a fun and sexy book to read. I really enjoyed the sarcastic banter between Lilly and Dante. That was probably my favorite part.My only thing, and I don't want to call it a complaint, is that I wish that the story had continued just a little bit longer. I can't really explain what I mean without spoiling the story though. I will say this though, something was supposed to happen but didn't because of some unforeseen circumstances. Once that was resolved, I would have liked to have seen what didn't happen, happen. :) I will write up a better review after I read the book again, but I definitely recommend this to those who love sexy shifter romances.

    I love shifter romances no matter how ridiculous the premise is; but when the shifters are different species, as is the case in Cat Scratch Fever (lynx and wolf), I find myself more concerned with what their babies are going to shift into then the actual story. Also this book is set in Michigan, I am from Michigan so I found myself asking why on earth would a lynx shifter be living in the suburbs of Detroit. However this was a very enjoyable PNR story, at 138 pages it was also a quick read. So if you are looking for a sexy cross species shifter romance that gets right to the point I recommend this book.

    MAJOR SPOILER ALERT So this book actually had 4 stars until the very end. Like, how the hell can you end a book without telling me about them getting married? Did his dad just decide to rescind the Sunday deadline? Did they get a ceremony that night, or did they wait a while? Did everyone accept her? These are my important questions, and because I didn't finish this book with a sense of satisfaction, I had to bump my rating from 4 to 3.I liked it a lot, but that ending was like the author gave up and turned it in to publish anyway.

    There is never a dull moment between Lilly and Dante, "Dante plowed his hands through his shaggy black hair. "You damn well are if you think I'm gonna whip my junk out and jack off in front of you." Yep never a dull moment, "you've got to be sh**tin' me. We've seen each other masturbating, and your dander is up because I mentioned you're in heat?" This book had so much humor and some naughty scenes that I hope there's more to come.

    Loved it! The book was funny and very well written and not nearly long enough! I wish I would have had at least 2 more chapters to read to really know what happened with them. I liked the idea of the proverbial cat and dog...although the dog in this case was a wolf! The banter back and forth between the main characters was very good and all in all a very good quick read.
