Colt Harper hates it when you pat a cat the wrong way, or when you upload their faux pas to YouTube. In fact, he'll probably kill you for it.
As a self-proclaimed master vampire cat, Colt never imagined he'd be sent to community service at a revolting community theater. And for what? Killing humans who don't buy the expensive brand of cat food? Talk about unfair.
Still, working with a nervous werewolf and a monster addicted to tickling wasn't on his to-do list.
What's worse, is he's falling for a human. Sure, she has green eyes. Sure, she fosters stray cats. But she's still a disgusting human.
So why is he risking his own life to save her from the chasers?
With a name like COLT HARPER - ESTEEMED VAMPIRE CAT, I figured the book was going to be completely horrible or absolutely amazing. So which one did it end up being? It was somewhere in the middle. I ended up loving the ESTEEMED VAMPIRE CAT, but it did take some time to get there.
ESTEEMED VAMPIRE CAT is a character driven comedy. Because of that it takes time to develop the characters, get to know them, and learn the humor. I didn’t really get into the story until close to the halfway mark. In fact, up until that point I was getting closer and closer to putting the book down. There wasn’t anything really wrong with the story, it just hadn’t pulled me in yet.
However, at the halfway mark ESTEEMED VAMPIRE CAT became amazing! I had grown to like and understand the characters and the plot had really kicked off. The best part of the second half of ESTEEMED VAMPIRE CAT was the plot twists and surprises. A lot of books that really on comedy play into and emphasize following the tropes and not having surprises. Yet there were a number of reveals in ESTEEMED VAMPIRE CAT, that I had no idea were coming and absolutely blew me away.
At the end of the day, I do rate ESTEEMED VAMPIRE CAT as absolutely amazing. You do just have to get into the book first. I’m really looking forward to reading the next book in the Colt Harper series.Series Titles:
