This had the word CAT in the title, which meant I obviously had to read it. From the sexy cover, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect, other than some serious hotness and a little kitty thrown in. What I got was a bit different – this is a story of two men coming together because of a cat. New to town, the main character goes with his friend to a charity event and finds a stray kitten calling to him – concerned about the kitten’s well-being, the local vet arrives and the two fall in love with each other.
This main plot of this story revolves around one man finally being true to himself and his courage to finally live as the gay man he always knew himself to be. Through a few misunderstandings, they work everything out and have the kitten to thank for everything.
The sex was very tame and very vanilla – and no, there was no animals involved. 😉 It was a fun and easy read, without the typical angst of coming out stories. The warnings read voyeurism and sex in public places – but I wouldn’t label either incident as such, so if you’re into that, this isn’t the book for you. Overall, a decent love story between one confused man and one patient man, who bond over their cat.
Out of four…
Overall Read: ♥♥♥
Sex Heat: ♥
This is a great book for a quick lazy afternoon read, or someone who is looking to venture into m/m without any of the “scary” parts.
One thought on “A Cat Named Hercules – KC Kendricks”
If you are in the mood for a sweet shorter story, yet still expect good plot construction and likeable characters, then this would be a nice choice. A pretty enjoyable read especially with the added cuteness of Hercules!
