Okay so I’m lucky enough to have received an early peek at Shelley Munro’s Stray Cat Strut, her M/M quickie that releases today from Ellora’s Cave. This is told in first person and is more than just sexy, it’s romantic and a little heartbreaking in places.
This story is soooo good! It has a great flavor (as many of Shelley’s books) from the culture and geography of New Zealand and it’s got some great visits from old friends in the Middlemarch Mates series too.
But the heart of the story, the blooming relationship between Saul and Lucas is just wonderful.
As I said above, Shelley tells the story in first person and I think she did such a fabulous job. Oh and one of the things that bugs me sometimes is when men in a romance are like women in a man suit. They say and do things no man I’ve ever met would say or do. But Shelley’s Saul and Lucas are written so well and this romance definitely comes across with so much genuine masculinity and male voice.
Anyway, I loved it! It’s a quickie so it’ll start your day out or make your lunch hour really good and send you home in a really good mood!
