Sizzling PR: Claiming Their Cat - Maggie O'Malley - Review

Maggie O'Malley

From Goodreads:
Cat Watson managed to escape from the powerful drug lord Alvarez and right into the hands of the notorious killer—Rabid Rio. Rio promises to protect her and her baby if she becomes his mistress. With no money, what choice did she have? Then Rio's brother, Creed, shows up and vows his protection too. She finally feels safe, that she belongs only to discover they’ve betrayed her.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Ménage (m/f/m), anal play/intercourse, sex with toys, and spanking.

Wow, what an interesting twist on …everything!  Rio is werewolf.  A hot, built, sexy, lethal mercenary werewolf.  He’s a loner, in a big huge way.  There are plenty of stories about Rio and the kills he’s done for money.  Rio is someone to be reckoned with.  You don’t mess with Rio.  So when he is in his friend’s diner having a cup of coffee, and obviously an obviously distressed woman named Cat comes in, he takes notice.  And when some goons who work for drug lord Alvarez come in looking for her, he takes bigger notice.  Oh, and let’s not forget she is pregnant, and no one really knows exactly whose baby it is!

“An eighteen wheeler skidded to a stop outside the diner, and a small woman threw herself from the cab, surely she wasn’t the cause of his uneasiness.  Anything was possible since women were nothing but a pain in the ass.”

Haha!  What a quote!!  But that sums up Rio.  So he was the last person you’d expect to fall for a woman.  But fall he did.  He rescues Cat, even if she is too stubborn and untrusting to see it.   She tries to escape, multiple times.  And ahem, that’s not the only thing she does multiple times.

This was a really good story.  You have a lot of factors during it that really grab your interest.  There is the slimy drug lord Alvarez, who is trying to get Cat back.  You have Rio who realizes Cat is his mate, so he is fiercely protective of her – except he’s yet to tell her that!  Then in walks Creed, sexy fine brother of Rio, who happens to be a military sniper.  He realizes Cat is his mate too. 

What?!!?  Two werewolves find a mate in the same woman??  Yep!!  That’s what I said.  What a big twist on a werewolf story.  Maggie O’Malley did a fine job of illustrating how it would work too.  And this is where I would insert my big wink so you know I mean there is definitely more than what I can tell you in this review.  There is some kink in nearly every intimate scene in this book.  The developing relationship between the three of these people definitely warrants the Publishers warning.  However, if you dig some major heat in your romance, then this will definitely spark your fire!

So what else is in this book?  Well, there is a seer, and she is always right.  Oh, and vampires.  Vampires that are freakishly awesome!!  Mainly, his name is Draco.  Draco is bad ass!  He can do all kinds of mind trickery and other magical things that you don’t see too often in vampire stories.  I just loved him.  He is suave and cool, and I totally hope he gets a book of his own someday!

I think the author did a really good job with this story, and I’d definitely recommend it.  There were a few things that bothered me – like Cat’s stubbornness to see what an awesome position she landed in.  But that was her personality, and I guess you aren’t supposed to get mad at a fictional character because you don’t agree with their decisions.  Because we never do that, right??  Heheh.  Overall I really enjoyed all of the characters.  They were written very well and you felt their emotions and their struggles were your own.  The story had an urgency to it, and you knew the clock was ticking.  It was an exciting and interesting read, and I think you should give it a chance!
