aaaaaah kitty!

This story is so damn purple it's almost an eggplant. However, it also has a cat-man and lots of adorable kitty-loving.

And since kitty trumps all, it gets 5 stars. Because cat.

Who cares if it has no plot?

ETA aaand some more

aaaand side note ^^
If I ever get a cat, I totally want a Maine Coon...

This was just too cute. I loved Tom and his cat behavior. I laughed so much while reading this. A very light and cheeky read, but satisfying nonetheless. I thought the stalking plotline felt a little out of place, but it did what it was intended to do, which was drive the plot forward. Still, with the short format, it meant that it stuck out a little when the main story (and the tone of the story) was about Tom's transformation, Brian's burgeoning magic, and their growing relationship.

This cute short starts with Brian taking his boyfriend of 6 months to meet his mother and sister. However it all goes to hell, again, when his family who are witches (Brian is a null with no power) scare him off claiming it's for his own good because he's not right. He was number 7 they've done that too. Later that night during a storm he takes in a stray cat and after drowning his sorrows in beer and whining to the cat, he decides on a whim to try one of his grandmother's spells to find a mate. ...more
Cute story about a man who comes from a family of witches. After a drunken evening he somehow manages to turn a cat into a man. Funny in places but the whole thing was a bit rushed for my liking and the stalker sub-plot isn't my favourite. Plus I wasn't sure that I liked the whole cat-man thing and whether it would all work out in the long run. Still, it passed the time nicely and I liked Brian and his unconventional family.
3.5 stars. Cute short paranormal m/m romance about a guy without any magical ability who's feeling lonely because his witch mother and sisters keep scaring away his boyfriends. Then he rescues a giant black tomcat from a storm and tells it all his problems...

Short and sweet story about a male null witch in a family of powerful woman witches.

This is just the cutest story ever. Tom is so sweet, and well, kittenish. When he is watching birds out the window, I could picture it and laughed. There is a moment, during the family dinner, what you just want to hug Brian, and then you wonder why he puts up with them all. Oh, family, right.
The Peter issue was a little off-putting, as we don’t really get enough into it to make it worth following. But it gives Tom a chance to show his stuff, so it was okay. T
It felt like a long short story. I mean the plot and action is very little (view spoiler)

I really felt like I read more than there should have been for this kind of plot. It kinda hanged in a middle - neither short nor normal length story. I think there should have been more added to it or 1/3 or so cut off.
This story didn't speak to me. Weird one! I liked Brian and his family. The atmosphere between them all was enjoyable, but the plotted part, which continued, simply said, felt wrong.

She lives in Nevada, filling her laptop with too many stories to count and trying to ignore the yells of her football-obsessed siblings in the background. Most days, Amylea can be found sitting in her favorite chair after work, bugging those around her for fun tidbits to make her stories more ...more
