    2.5 StarsCats, cats, cats, cats, cats I would say that this book could just be the tip of the iceberg in a scandal that will bring down governments This could be the biggest scandal since Fox News did an expos on the wanton stationery theft by Democrats in Congresseven bigger than the doctor who used the same rectal thermometer on thousands of patients without cleaning it once Folks I m convinced cat ladies have infiltrated animal shelters Trust no one.

    I was very impressed with how real the characters seemed to be I immediately liked Roxy, the cat whisperer, and loved how devoted she was to caring for cats in need of homes, because as she points out, people tend to only want cute, cuddly kittens They forget that kittens grow up SLIGHT SPOILER ALERT One part in particular really broke my heart A box holding several kittens that are so small their eyes still aren t open is abandoned, tossed out like garbage It tugged at my emotions and had me crying and wanting to hunt down the people responsible I was sad and disgusted to think of someone having such disregard for precious lives and at the same time happy that the kittens were rescued by Roxy Any time an author can elicit such strong emotions and such a mixture of emotions from a reader it s just plain good writing END SPOILER I also loved and could relate to Max His actions as a father and the love and gentleness he showed to Roxy s cats melted my heart He is a true hero, in my eyes Max is the type of father every child should have a person who believes in tough love AND showing love.Another delightful surprise was Hartman showing her humorous side on than one occasion I especially enjoyed how Roxy handled people who came into the shelter I won t give anything away, but I can tell you I laughed out loud than once and re read one scene a couple of times because Roxy really turned the tables on some people visiting the shelter.Whether you like cats or not, this book is a great make you feel good read You ll find yourself smiling at the end.

    Once again, one of my favorite sweet romance authors has delivered a story as warm and fuzzy as the cat on the cover Don t let looks fool you, though This story takes us deep within the bowels of a terrifying placea cat shelter Ok, so not so terrifying to most people, and not to Roxy, the heroine of the story Unfortunately, for 11 year old Derek, who s been forced to volunteer at the shelter or face juvenile detention, it s his worst nightmare And that s a shame, because Derek s single dad, Max, is one fine specimen of a man He and Roxy hit it off, but their future together is questionable, since Roxy cannot give up her cats, and Max cannot force his son to overcome his fear I loved the reality of this situation One could imagine themselves in Roxy and Max s shoes Mrs Hartman writes in such a way that their desire for one another tugs at your heartstrings, but you feel sympathetic toward Derek, who really does try his best The characters are genuinely flawed Roxy being awkward around teens and clumsy, and Max a high school basketball coach being a loud Sasquatch at times I particularly love that these quirks provide both laughs and conflict as the two of them try to make it work in what at times seems to be an impossible relationship.I highly recommend this book, and any of Ruth J Hartman s works, to all the sweet romance lovers out there, young adult and beyond And if you re an ailurophile cat lover , I m sure you ll find it purrfect

    A great story for cat loversBetter Than Catnip, to me is fiction than romance The romance is there, it s just the heroine s shelter seems to take prominent over the romance I would ve liked to have gotten a deeper background story on both Max and Roxie I would ve also liked to have seen passion between them I know this is something that maybe hard to do in clean romance, but I have read some where you can really feel the passion between the couple without sex and to me this couple didn t have that spark.Derek is a great addition to the story There were times I wished the author would have gone into detail on what he were feeling and how he felt when he overcame his fear of cats I hope one day the author would be willing to write a follow up for this story I would like to know how things are going for Roxie, Max and how Derek growing over his fear of cats by working at the shelter with Roxie.Overall, if you love cats this is a great clean story with a touch of romance between Max and Roxie I recommend this book to cozy readers and light romance readers that love a good story about the everyday cat shelter.I received a copy from the publisher for an honest review.

    This is a definite book for cat lovers, if you don t like cats you wont want to read this book as it takes place at a cat shelter The owner is Roxy and most of the story is around the cats or involving cats in the shelter with some romance One day a boy and his father come to the shelter just before opening and tell Roxy that the boy, Derek is there for community service Derek s dad, Max is a hunk in Roxy s eyes and she is interested in him sticking around to help at the shelter with his son Max and Roxy start to fall for each other but with all romances there ups and downs and sometimes obstacles This is a great romance comes with one big obstacle, Derek has a huge fear of cats Cats are Roxy s whole world and she doesn t really want to live without them but she really likes Max Roxy is trying to help Derek overcome his huge fear of cats This novel moves at a great pace, not too rushed but not slow moving either I love how Derek is put in a place to have to either run or overcome his cat fears Roxy and Max both need to learn to have a relationship when a kid is involved and Max is just really becoming a father as he didn t have custody to his son until now.

    If you love cats, you ll love this story The main character, Roxy, owns a cat shelter She meets a single parent Max whose son Derek must fulfill community service work at the shelter Unfortunately the boy had a bad experience with a cat in his childhood and they terrify him Although Max, Roxy and Derek become close, Derek s phobia stands in the way of them pulling together as a family.Since I love felines, I really enjoyed hearing about the different kinds of cats that end up in the shelter As a cat owner, I could relate to all the work involved in taking care of cats I particularly enjoyed the lengths that Roxy would go to show the cats a good time I wanted to take several of the kitties home, or at least stroke their beautiful fur.As I read, I kept rooting for Derek to make a breakthrough in his phobia I also wanted Roxy and Max to end up together Does the tale end purrfectly, or is there a catastrophe in the making I m not saying, but Better Than Catnip did make my tail wag.

    As usual, Ruth J Hartman has created some funny yet realistic characters Roxy may be a klutz and unable to take two steps without falling over her own feet but when it comes to her kitties, she s as sure footed as they come in her pursuit of their welfare Max loves his son and is determined to make up for his absence in the boy s life by being the best dad possible, and making certain Derek knows how much he s loved Derek is a child on the cusp of adolescence, abused by one parent, now in the custody of one who s almost a stranger, albeit a loving, caring stranger whom he knows has his welfare at heart The cats are cats, fuzzy, lovable, playful, cautious, aloof everything catly.Take them all and swirl them in a way which shows that the author also loves cats, and people, very much What comes out is a delightful story which will may make you laugh out loud in spots If you like cats, and sweet love stories, this one is Better than Catnip and will suit you just fine This novel was supplied by the author and no remuneration was involved in the writing of this review.

    Derek has just moved in with his father, whom he barely knows, and has already gotten in trouble at school Now he has a choice between community service and juvenile detention His father Max, signs him up for the only available community service option, Roxy s cat shelter Unfortunately, he doesn t realize that Derek is terrified of cats due to an unfortunate incident when he was a young child Fortunately, Max is a teacher and has plenty of time to join Derek at the shelter to help things a little easier, and spend some time getting to know him.This story is Roxy s story, but its also about the relationship between Derek and Max I loved seeing Derek getting to know both Max and Roxy Max and Roxy s easy flirting is fun to read and seeing how much Max cares about his son makes you really root for him to figure everything out I really loved this book It was a good easy read with characters I liked and cared about Note I received the book in exchange for an honest review from the clean reads site.
