This is yet another re-read of mine. I wanted to re-read the series in order to continue on with the third book and the rest of the series. I'm so happy to be diving back into this world, I forgot how much I loved it. The beginning of the book starts off as a couple of months after the ending of the first book. She's made a deal with her dad, which I'm not going to tell you what because I don't want to give anything away, but it's a good deal and benefits both of them. She stays at the Lazy S ranch with her family and those she grew up with and she's working as an enforcer for her dad, which I loved!
Faythe definitely kicks ass and you dive into that in the beginning. She's a strong and stubborn woman, and I love that in her character. She's no damsel in distress, which makes me very happy because it's so refreshing! Sometimes it's okay to let your man come to your aid, but you also need to learn to defend for yourself.
And speaking of men, *le sigh* I love Marc. He is just so yummy. Definitely a man to add to all of your Book Boyfriends list. He has a temper and he's pretty possessive, but in a weird way that is just kind of sexy with him. You know what I mean? Him and Faythe are perfect for each other. They may seriously push each other's buttons sometimes, but they are two halves to a whole.
I love all the other characters as well, they just jump off the page. They've all kind of grown from the first book, and I'm very happy about it. It makes everything all the more real.
There are a few "minor" characters that you don't see very often, though they are there, from the first book come back in this one and it will definitely make your jaw drop. I even like the bad guys! I mean, yes, they make me angry. But gosh, they are so real and intriguing! And this book also adds a very interesting female character to the cast and I'm very curious to learn more about her.
Overall, this book won't disappoint you after finishing the first book. It is just as intriguing. This series has action, mystery, romance and will never fail to make you laugh. I highly recommend it. You'll never get enough of it. =) Note & Warning: Just as I said with the first book in this series, it's an Adult series. There are some scenes in this book that may not be suitable for those under the age of 16....more

(www.vintagebookworm.blogspot.com) This is another re-read for me. I read Stray a couple of years ago. I only read the first two books in the series, but never continued. So I decided to re-read Stray & Rogue to refresh my mind so I can continue and finish the series. I have to say, I really forgot how amazing this series is.
It pulls you in from the beginning and keeps you along for the ride. The writing flows very nicely together and you can fly through more pages than your normally do a minute. I can't really think of anything that bugs me, other than the characters and the things some characters do in the story, which is SUPPOSED to happen. =) In which it is good.
I love the main characters, Faythe. She is truly a kick-ass heroine. She's brave, sarcastic, stands up for herself, and knows how to kick ass when she needs to. She doesn't let anyone push her around, and I love all of that about her. I can't believe I forgot how awesome she is! She makes me laugh constantly throughout the books.
I also love Marc, her family and Pride. They all have so much personality to them that you feel like you know them. I wish my family was that close. And aaaah, Marc is so yummy! (J, if you're reading this, you knew this was coming! I bet you think Faythe is yummy, but you're just too scared to say it.)
Overall, this was amazing the first time I read it, amazing this second time around, and I will definitely be re-reading it again in the future. It has a unique story line and there are WERECATS! Not werewolves, WERECATS! You can't say that isn't cool. And it's not housecat. It's BIG cats.
NOTE & WARNING: This is an ADULT book. It deals heavily with rape. There aren't any actual rape scenes in the book, but it is talked about and and attempted. This is a great series, but probably not so great for those under 16....more
