The Cattery – K.A. Merikan
— Role-playing a cat for six months? You said you’re paying how much? —
Goran’s mouth has no filter, and it’s losing him job after job. Desperate and a week away from being homeless, he finds an offer online that sounds too good to be true. Spending six months in a mansion by the beach in return for a hundred thousand dollars as long as he sticks to the house rules.
This might be the one job where his unruly mouth doesn’t get in the way. After all, saying the wrong thing is impossible… when you’re role-playing a cat.
Meeting all the other guys at the cattery seems to be the icing on the cake, but the inconvenient truth he dishes out turns out to be too much. Goran makes everyone his enemy, but worst of all, Ollie, the prettiest cat of the bunch, the one who’s been in the cattery the longest, and the one who makes Goran’s heart skip a beat.
Ollie’s big blue eyes hold secrets Goran is intent on cracking, but to do so, he will need to learn to bite his tongue and listen. Too bad the pretty blond ice prince is set on getting Goran kicked out of the cattery for good.

Hi!, Miki here. I´ve been MIA for awhile, with some maternal duties. But the girls have been taking good care of the blog. So I wanted to come back with something special. Warning; sorry in advance about my English!
The Cattery is the new book by this amazing duo.
K.A. Merikan always has the ability to go a little beyond the comfortable limits of any reader, they tend to provide raw, elegant, uncomfortable, stories. In this scenario, role playing is a recurring theme in their books, and has already been covered in The Copper Horse, Stung, or Crazy Kinky Dirty Love. With different levels of intensity in the depth of the particular kink, the stories always have a huge erotic charge and they go with full force, putting everything into it 100%, without softening it or overshadowing its aspects. In the case of The Cattery, the cat-play is part of the context and what triggers the action, so it is not decorative, but the sexual encounters are slightly sweeter and more romantic centered than in their other books, because the story requires it.
The Merikans are bold and risky authors when creating. They write what they want and not what the market wants to publish. And that is why they are able to take the reader beyond the comfortable zone, playing with moral limits..
This is a sweet little romance, spiced with a particular kink about cat role playing. But it is also a book that *bothers*, in some way, because the sexual encounters in the context of the particular kink arouse pleasure in the reader. It is very easy to be seduced by the detailed descriptions of each meeting, by the senses put into action, and the beautiful surroundings. Erotic, but sweet and warm at the same time. It is not unpleasant, but you are subjected to situations that may cause some embarrassment. And that is the talent of the wonder duo
100 points for the cover. The artwork is beautiful, the color scheme and the photography. And it should be highlighted because covers are usually disastrous in the m/m genre. Nobody seems to care about it.
So, if you don´t know the authors, go check their library. They have some amazing stories, slightly different from the books that are usually offered in the genre.
