This Kitten's Got Curves is my favorite so far in the Shifter Date series. I just knew I would love Gareth from the first moment I met him. He knew what he wanted and wasn't afraid to go after it. He needs a mate before his thirty-fifth birthday and after so many dating failures he decided to give the Shifter Date App a go. Rachel who also made an account on the App, is only only looking for fun with no strings attached. She wanted casua

This Kitten’s Got Curves is the third book in the Shifter Date series, and I found it to be just as delightful as the two prior books.

If the truth is to be known, I was rather shocked by this third book. Not because of the story – it was everything I had hoped for – but because it was released so soon. Three books in the space of a month – I was not expecting to be so lucky! I’d been of the belief that I would be waiting longer to see what would come next, meaning I was a very happy reader when

Rachel has been on a dry spell ever since her ex cheated on her. And that's why she isn't looking for a mate or relationships. But she's in need of getting laid, so she joins Shifter, the dating app, in order to find someone who will fulfill her needs, without getting attached.

Gareth is the alpha of his pack, ever since his father got murdured and it's his responsibility to find a mate and get married before he turns 35, otherwise he loses his right to remain the leader of his pack. That's how

4 Star Review Shifter Date: This Kitten’s Got Claws (Shifter Date #3) by Alma Black
Book three in the series and just as quick and enjoyable to read as the previous books in the series. Alma Black certainly has a knack for steamy paranormal story- telling, I would have to say that this is my favourite so far. Paranormal is not a genre that I read often, but I am really enjoying this series from Alma Black and I look forward to reading more from her.

I'll start off by saying I was slightly lost. I havent been able to read book 2. So, hopefully I can get that done so everything clicks into place. I'll probably end up coming back here to edit my review. So, this is my opinion as of now til I get the other read.

I have to admit Gareth was really a take charge big bear of hotness! He really went after what he wanted once he knew Rachel was his mate. He wasnt gonna let her go no matter w

Alma has shifted me to the shifter side! This book was purrrfect!

The teaser for her first book said once you go shifter you never go back... and how true it is! A few things you need to know... if you don't dig alpha male, instalove or lots of sex... this book isn't for you. And that's okay.

But, if you love those things, but are hesitant to read this because it it's a shifter novel, please don't let that keep you away! Alma has a way of telling a story that I just love, I can't quite put my fing

The third book in the Shifter Date series gives us Gareth, a bear shifter Alpha who's ready to find his mate and settle down, and Rachel, a strong-willed lioness, who's only interested in finding Mr. Right Now.

Both are ready to end their respective dry spells, and decide to give the Shifter Date app a try. Their profiles match and their chemistry is red hot! Gareth knows that Rachel is his mate and he's determined to convince her that they are meant for each other. Rachel can't deny the

What happens when he is the one who wants a relationship but she has been burnt and is looking for a hook up? Find out in this delicious read from Alma Black. Gareth despairs of ever finding his mate and Rachel has been burnt by the guy she has loved her entire life. Thank goodness shifters can sense their mates it may help Gareth win the fair ladies hand. This may be the best in the series to date. Can be read stand alone.

Gareth is running out of time to find his true, fated mate. If he hasn’t found his mate before his birthday anyone from his clan can challenge for his alpha position. And while he’s not worried about the challenge, there are some younger bears who have attitude and the guts to try, and he has no desire to destroy those he cares for and is their leader . His world is changing rapidly, with the recent murder of his father, and former alpha and the growing unrest put forth

Book 3 in this shifter app series and I'm still intrigued, I want to find out how the various packs are going to deal with the threat that they all face.

Each book has me invested further into the series and admittedly waiting impatiently for the next book in the series..

I would definitely recommend this book and the series to all fans of the shifter genre and paranormal romance in general

In book three of the Shifter Date series, Shifter Date: This Kitten's Got Curves, we meet Rachel and Gareth. From the very beginning, this couple has chemistry that is off the charts. It's that whole I-just-laid-eyes-on-perfection thing, and Ms. Black writes it well. A heads up for new readers, this book can be read as a stand alone, but there are plot elements that continue from book to book.

Wow! This book was great! I loved how Alma Black is driving us mad with who all is in this Shifter Power! I really would love to see all three couples we have met so far interact.

This book had me rolling constantly. Rachel's inner monolog was fantastic. And once she met her mate... Even if she did not think he was for a while kept me chuckling.

When this book starts with Gareth's story, I was completely sucked into his story. It truly captivated me. He needed a mate more than anything and was w

Lioness shifter Rachel has sworn she is not going to fall in love again, after her fiance cheated on her. Unfortunately that means her sex life is now non existent. Her best friend suggests she try the dating app for shifters. Sounds like a good idea to her.
Bear shifter Gareth is coming up to his birthday. If he is not mated by then any of his pack can challenge him for alpha. With Power Shift causing trouble in a lot of packs including his, it's urgent that he find his mate. The dating app is

This was the third installment in the Shifter Date series, and this one could very well be read as a standalone. Rachel has been hurt in the past, and is now just looking for Mr. Right Now, nothing long term, just some fun in the sheets.

Gareth is in need of finding his mate, his status as Alpha depends on it. So when he tries the Shifter Date App and he sees Rachel, he knows he has just met his mate. The only problem is Rachel herself. Will he be able to convince her

Of the three books so far in this series, this one is my favorite. I loved both Rachel and Gareth but will admit to loving Rachel more. The intrigue is still there in regards to Power Shift, but the story as a whole is well balanced between romance and drama.. The story is very easy to follow and hard to just put down. You'll want to read it all at once. The romance builds but you will root for your favorite as I root for Rachel. I look forward to reading more from this author, her books are int ...more

Rachel and Gareth's story is hot hot hot! Rachel has been burned and is only looking for a hook-up, Gareth is looking for forever. She agrees to let Gareth court her, but has no intention of becoming emotionally involved. I won't spoil it by giving anything away, but their journey is scorching hot, but not without its obstacles. I definitely recommend this book to all the shifter lovers out there, but for mature eyes only!

This Kitten's Got Curves has turned out to be my favorite of the Shifter Date series so far. I loved how feisty, and willing to just do things her way Rachel is and Gareth is a total dream! Their love story is not without bumps in the road and readers of the series will notice Power Shift again being an issue but this passionate duo earn their HEA! Another great read from Ama, I was glad to read and give an honest review an ARC of this book.

Thanks to a sour breakup, Rachel wasn't looking for love. She just needed a good romp session. Her friend Jasmine turns her towards the new Shiftr app. Maybe she could find what she need. Gareth is Alpha Bear of his clan. He needs a mate. Quickly. Can he convince Rachel that she is his? This story is amazing. I couldn't put it down and was more than happy to devour it in one sitting. I can't wait to see what more treasures Alma Black adds to this growing series!

I am loving this series! I think anyone who enjoys shifter romance would.

Rachel decides to check out the shifter app for a hook up, she isn't looking for a mate. She just had a bad break up and needs a little action.

Gareth is looking for forever. He needs to have his mate before his birthday or he can be challenged for alpha.

Can Rachel keep it causal? Can Gareth turn FWB into more?

I was pleasantly surprised when I received an ARC from Alma. The shifter dating app books have become my favorites. Rachel and Gareth were not on the same page but a lot of TLC packed a wallop. It is really my honest pleasure to read and write a review of this cute tale. Powershift is really becoming a problem that I hope will be addressed in future books, please

At the urging of her best friend, Rachel decides to use the dating app to get back on the cart.

I have yet to be disappointed by Alma Black and her delicious Shifter Date Series. Book three of this series was on fire. I am a huge fan of well built tension by an author.
Rachel was Jasmine's bestie in Hungry as a Wolf. This girl had just the right amount of attitude and we get to see it first hand in this book. Rachel is tired of being alone and in a sexual slump. So what the hell, she gives the Shifter Date App a chance. There she meets an adonis. The downside, she wants a wam bam thank ya

Okay, let me start by saying that I am fast becoming addicted to Alma's Shifter Date series... each story is like a little slice of book heaven... They have Action, suspense, great characters and sex that have you wiggling in your seat.

This Kitten's got Curves is the 3rd book in the series and focuses on Rachel - a lion Shifter and Gareth - a bear shifter... I know, I know, it shouldn't work but it just really does.

This is the first book in this series I read because I wasn't aware it actually WAS a series and this is a new author to me. I was a little thrown at the term "pack" being used for all shifter groups but after I got over that it was a very enjoyable book. Gareth and Rebecca were a very interesting couple and although, as the reader, you know what Gareth knows about Rebecca, it was nice to see she didn't jump the gun and go straight there to a realization....
