I don’t think I can say anything without minor and maybe a couple bigger spoilers.

A sweet, short read about 2 men with broken gaydars. It was a bit silly and the ending was rushed, but it was AMAZING compared to the last book I was trying to read. Also, the "furry matchmaker" didn't play as big of a role as I expected.

This story has KITTEN. IT HAS KITTEN!! Okay, sorry, I just have to let that out. I'm a sucker for pets in any stories, so this one warms me quick. Especially since it has kitten (can't you guess that I'm a cat person rather than a dog? *lol*)

The two main characters do need to work on their communication skill (or they gaydar, if that one exists *lol*) but it's good when they finally get it right. The lovely ending (which gives readers a glimpse of their life in the "future") is another plus poi

This was such a sweet heart-warming story - short but not all about sex which can sometimes be the case. Dave and Christian are so enchanting - dancing around one another because they're sure the other is "straight". The "furry matchmaker" is freaking adorable, too. I love that it didn't just stop but gave the reader a little bit of closure. Short, but so sweet.

This is a sweet, fun, much too short story about two men brought together by a wounded kitten. It takes the two humans a while to work out that they belong together, but when they do, it's a major success and just goes to show that cats know better than humans.

Hot guys, a wounded little kitten and steamy sex...what more can a girl ask for? A copy of The Furry Matchmaker, that’s what!

I’m a sucker for M/M stories. I love them sweet, sticky, sexy... doesn’t matter. I also love stories with kitties in them. This book delivers both the M/M and the kitty. Coupled with Ms. Toland’s easy writing style and descriptive scenes, and the reader is in for a treat.

I fell in lust with this book when I read the blurb. Dave and Christian are great heroes. There’s a h

Very short story of an adorable kitten who causes the meeting of the man who rescues her and the vet who checks her out. There is a lot of miscommunication going on, but eventually they work it out. Very sweet and cute.
This was a very sweet story that managed to get a good bit of misunderstanding-angst in it's 40 pages.

I enjoyed it and would definitely look for other stories by this author.

This was cute. The guys were hot but sweet and the kitten was adorable. I would definitely recommend it for when you need a quick, feel-good read.

This was a really quick, cute, and sweet story! I was pleasantly surprised at how much Ms. Toland was able to pack into this story with how short it was. I thought she did a great job with the characters because they were very well developed in my opinion.

The storyline was one that I haven’t actually read before, so I enjoyed that immensely. I thought that she did a great job at writing the characters to where they were both in the dark until they were ready to come into the light and see what

I'll be giving away paperback copies at GRL to a few lucky fans!

I hope you enjoy this short story that was previously published. No need to re-buy the book if you already have it. Only light edits were made to the story but it is on 99c pre-order at ARe.

I really enjoyed this sweet short story. Dave rescues a wounded kitten and brings her to the vet. Christian Prince is a gorgeous vet and is immediately attracted to the hunky knight in shining armor. I just thought this story was a perfect quick read and would have loved to learn more about Christian and Dave.

I liked how the story started out but after that it just got a bit too rushed and farfetched for me. I mean (view spoiler) There were too many assumptions and the lack of communication between the two just made me a bit frustrated. ...more

A typical read, nothing really special at all. It really irked me, how everyone was beautiful and gorgeous and ... not realistic at all.

Oh, and the kitten? The 'furry matchmaker' itself? Had little to nothing to do with the story at all.

A big, strong guy who has a soft spot for a kitten and the vet that helps save it's life--what is not to love? This book not only has two wonderful, sexy heros and an adorable kitten, it also has great sexual tension that kept me turning the pages.
This was a cute story. I loved how the two met and I love Drew even more because of the kitten. Not many people would take the time to rescue a kitten on the side of the road. I fell in love with him the second he stopped and with how much he cared for the kitten.

Very cute short story of a guy who has gotten out of a relationship and one day on his way to work spies a kitten on the road. He takes her to the nearest vet's office where he meets Christian.

They both seem to have broken gaydars ;) The story is short and sweet and I enjoyed it.

The stupid in this story goes way beyond broken gaydars. Both men are honestly just too stupid to live.

This story was to absurd. Every page i turned it was oh no this is not happening(again). No character development at all. Waste of time and money.
