Tiger by the Tail

Middlemarch Mates, Book Nine

Tiger by the Tail written by Shelley Munro is one in a series of stories but can be read without reading the others. Ambar, Hari (who are both cat shifters) and Jake (who is a straight? human) are the 3 main characters. The first few chapters are slow reading as you get to know Ambar and the two guys. I liked Hari and Jake enough that I will go back to read the previous books in the series but I had trouble with Ambar and her poor me attitude.
This book has a few m/m and m/f/m scenes.

Book Blurb for Tiger by the Tail

Tiger shifter Hari Daya takes one look at Ambar Patel’s photo and is smitten. Further research heightens his fascination. An arranged marriage would work, except the lady isn’t buying and tells him to take a hike.

Ambar is already involved with human Jake Quinn. Casual pleasure and lovin’ works best for her since she dreams of traveling the world and delving into new experiences. The frisson of heat and desire she feels for Hari is unacceptable. There will be no tiger mate for her.

Jake Quinn has no idea either his lover or his new friend are shifters, but there sure as hell is something weird going on in his head. As much as he enjoys sex with Ambar, he’s thinking about Hari too. Suddenly there’s kissing and togetherness way past his comfort zone. The slide into sinful pleasure with both Hari and Ambar is easy—it’s the relationship dynamics that give them headaches and make them wonder if they’re making a huge mistake.
