Meliana has denied her powers as a witch because she’d rather fit into society. She doesn’t want to stand out, but a woman with blue hair and the power to work magic doesn’t necessarily blend in. She got the cat in an attempt to be normal, but this kitty has a secret and it’s guaranteed to surprise.

I liked this short story. It was a fast read, very short, but I enjoyed every page.

First of all, the story is set in a world where most people are aware of magical beings like witches, shifters and the like. Not surprisingly, there are a few radicals hanging around to stir up trouble.

Meliana, our heroine, is a witch. The story begins when her grandmother, a powerful matriarch witch, gifts her with a kitten that Meli names Chaos. The tricky witch assures Meli that he is a normal kitty cat, and tells her that they will set each other free. Fast forward two years and a broken heart before Meli wakes up to find a sexy stranger in her bed. He clues her into the truth. His name is Adrian and he is her magical shifter mate.

There was some conflict that livened things up in this short story. Meli has been beaten down by the people closest to her, so she has trouble accepting that Adrian’s love. She thinks that he’ll only end up breaking her heart and moving on. She keeps trying to push him away, until it’s almost too late.

Mostly, I liked this story. It was fast paced and fun to read. I liked the characters, easily connecting with them. While I enjoyed it, I felt that it could’ve been better with a stronger plot. Specifically, I had some unresolved questions about the villains and how their plans were thwarted. Also, I would’ve liked more background on Meli, because it was obvious that her life had not been easy. My main complaint is that I wanted more. Not bad for a short book though.

This was my first time reading this particular author. I enjoyed it, and look forward to reading more of her books in the future.
