Catch a Tiger by the Tail
Calvin and Ethan are more than best friends now, but they're not exactly boyfriends. Calvin doesn't want to push Ethan because of his struggles with Selective Mutism and Social Anxiety, so they're taking things very slow. However, if they want to move forward in their relationship, Ethan has to stop running from problems and Calvin needs to quit shutting his friend down.
As long as they were together, they'd make it through anything. Them agai...more
Because yeah....there was some skimming involved.
I started getting bored the second half.
I liked this one better than the last one. I should probably go round that one down. And really I should probably round this one down. But it's the THIRDS! And I love Dex and Sloane. And I did really like Ethan and Calvin.
I just wish more had happened plot wise.....and less description and detail of stuff I didn't really care about.
A great series, but Dex and Sloane are still my favorite couple!
Told in dual POV, 3rd person. It’s the sixth installment in the "THIRDS" series and should be read in order. It ends on a cliffhanger. It’s good that I’m a big fan of Dex because, otherwise, my rating for this and the previous story would be a 3 star (or maybe lower). It’s like the author hasn't had much to say about the couples, so she fills the stories with more of Dex and Sloane's! Of course still no complaint here…
Still love these guys so much. ❤
Originally read August 2018
I knew I would love Ethan and Calvin (I just can't say Calvin and Hobbs). Calvin is so sweet and patient with Ethan and is everything he needs. He does it all right to help him through his anxiety. And poor Ethan..I felt so bad for him and what all he has been through.
Yes, I have hated Rafe through this series and while I feel sorry for him and what he is going through or will go through, I don't think I'm as forgiving as ...more
Before I go, a few things I need to say about the book:
* i DNFd at 76% - my reason had nothing to do with the execution of the story or any of the characters that I still adore. I wil explain myself better in a bit.
* I liked Calvin and Ethan. I actually liked their dynamic
* There were things that seemed completely ...more
4.5 stars for the book
Well....I loved this more that Ash & Cael's book.
Calvin and Ethan are Relationship goals.
Since i am too tired to write a proper review, i will just list why i loved this:
- The chemistry.. these two had a believable chemistry, after all they have been best friends since childhood.
- It was nice to finally get into Ethan's head and understand his Selective Mutism and Social Anxiety, and how the team understood him. It is like they have developed some ...more
Wow! What a disappointment.
I've always really enjoyed the THIRDS series. In fact, I've regularly recommended it. They have had a great plot, with great characters and enough erotica to make it interesting.
Unfortunately, Catch a Tiger by the Tail was more soap opera than anything else. There is simply no plot. Nothing. Sure you learn more about the characters. In this book, it’s all about Calvin and Hobbs. Which is interesting but it’s not enough to carry the story.
The only saving grace is
I’m not gonna lie. I have a real affinity for a gentle giant, and here, Ethan Hobbs is the epitome of that. He’s one of the most endearing characters in this series, and I absolutely loved everything about him.
Ethan is understandably frustrated and limited by his severe anxiety and selective mutism. Despite being an integral member of the Destructive Delta team, and hence a THIRDS agent, there are many concessions that need to be made for his issues. Good thing he has his best friend si ...more
Book 6, Catch a Tiger By The Tail, is Cobb’s (aka Calvin and Hobbs) book. We’ve known both these characters since the very first book, but it’s only over the last three books that we’ve been ge ...more
Reread: March 2016 – BR with Trisha
Fact #1: I love Charlie Cochet. Fact #2: She is an evil author. Fact #3: This book is amazing.
Catch a Tiger by the Tail is written from Calvin and Hobbs' points of view, and it focuses on their relationship. Fear not, Destructive Delta is as present as ever. There's action, excitement, a lot of fun shenanigans, and pain. So much pain. Little piece of advice: Have a good supply of things that comfort you and keep it close. Chocolate, ...more

The sixth book in the series centers around the best friends since childhood, Ethan Hobbs, a Therian Tiger and Destructive Delta's sniper and his human partner, Calvin ‘Cal’ Summers, their demolitions expert. Hobbs, who suffers from Selective Mutism and Social Anxiety, is struggling with change; his partner has confessed to wanting more. He's terrified he'll end up losing Calvin. But will it be worth it get it all? To have Calvin completely and fully? Is Calv ...more
Most of the relationship trouble happened in the previous books, so I was glad this book mostly concentrated on them really getting together.
I was also glad the whole case with Hogan was finished and that the team had some regular cases this time. I felt that the team c ...more
This installment is one many THIRDS fans have been wanting to get their hands on, and I can’t imagine that they will be disappointed with Calvin and Hobbs’ story. The majority of the focus of this book really was on the relationships, with less action than in some of the prior stories, but I didn’t mind it one bit.
Calvin Summers and Ethan Hobbs have been best friends most of their lives, but over the past year the line between friends and “more than” has been ...more
As excited as I was to finally get in some Calvin and Hobbs action, I wasn’t expecting it to be my favourite book of the series, but to my absolute delight it very much was!
I really loved the character development explored in this story, particularly where Calvin was concerned. I felt like he was a bit of a mystery up until this story (at least to me) and I revelled in getting to know him better here. He has such a good heart and always puts the welfare of those he loves before his own ha ...more
I always liked Calvin and I was so happy to see his relationship with Hobbs progress, he was very sweet and patient. They are a match made in heaven :))
The previous book, di ...more
What is it about this series that has captured all our imaginations and left us clamouring for the next book? The entire Thirds series has become a huge comfort read series for me – if I have a book hangover I return to Dex and Sloane, if I’m out walking or if I’m travelling I turn on the audio books and return to Dex and Sloane. It’s not even all about Dex or Sloane either, I love the whole damn team!

OMG! I don't even know where to start!
There's nothing I could add to all the great 5* reviews so far, what hadn't already been said and they made a much better job than I ever could, so let's just say: I love this book! I love this series! And I love these guys! Always have. Always will. All of them! Okay, Sloane a little bit more than the others, but still... They are one big family and that becomes more and more evident ...more
I love this group of guys. They are funny, hot, sexy, and badass....so what's not to love?? The ending!! Seriously, the next book needs to come out NOW!
I really love this series. Oh, by the way, the part in this book when Hobbs was doing some 'research' on his computer was hilarious!

I loved Catch a Tiger by the Tail and how it explored Ethan and Calvin's relationship and furthered the main storyline a bit. I cannot wait for more -and not just ...more
In this book we finally get to meet the Hobbs Brothers - Rafe, Sebastian and Ethan. In bits and pieces we see the family as it was and as it is now - the struggles they face everyday due to being who they are and due to personal issues and demons. Finally light is shown o ...more
Oh God! I couldn’t agree more NORMAL is totally OVERRATED! .
Sixthh book following Destructive Delta Squad from THIRDS story.
This time? Calvin & Ethan.
So yeah! a sweet love bubble formed around these two guys, that f*ck, seriously? They have gone thrugh a lot ..REALLY A LOT good , bad…awful and nightmare-ish things…together
And after struggling they both come to the realization that they are made for each other.
But that doesn’t diminish all the perks of the work they do, and that… just ah…
SOLID 3.5 Stars! No GIFS this go round because I just... can't with this one. You hear me? I CAN'T.
P.S. I cuss....a lot.

Dear THIRDS Nerds, the time has come. We now hold in our hands the long awaited, breathlessly anticipated new THIRDS book and the second one that strays away from Dex and Sloane, albeit not very far. Calvin and Hobbs’ story has been brewing for quite a while, what with their fear of change, Ethan’s selective mutism and social anxiety problems, and all the mayhem surrounding Destructive Delta on a daily basis.
Unlike the previous two couples we’ve gotten very familiar with, Calvin and Ethan have ...more
I'm going to be short about this cause I really need to get to reading the next one...
I loved Ethan and Cavin. They were very sweet. Of course Dex will be my all time favorite, and I really love all these guys. This series is genious!!
So if you don't mind, I'll be off to Smokes & Mirrors
This book was simply addictive, a real page turner, I was glued to the pages, I couldn’t put it down, nothing else mattered, only the book.
The flow in continuity from the previous books is expertly done, you feel as you are o ...more

Ash clamped a hand over Cael’s mouth, his face crimson. “Dictionary. A huge dictionary. Cael’s teaching me new words, such as… delitescent. Adjective. This entire conversation should have remained delitescent.”
“I’m a little scared right now,” Dex whispered hoarsely, turning to Sloane. “Hold me.”
Ash let out a laugh. “You and Sloane, chaste? That’s the funniest shit I’ve heard all year!”
