Tiger Eye - Marjorie M. Liu Actually, this is closer to 4.5 stars. One of the best books I've read in a while. It flows (and I only flipped to the back once to see the ending). Both the H and the h are likable, the friends make you want to know more about them without overwhelming the story in THIS book (some authors get too enthusiastic about introducing the next story and forget which story they're currently writing).

Now... the one issue I did have here involved the sex scene. When they finally get around to doing IT (close to the end of the book, btw) and he "finds his skin", he asks for, and she gives him, permission to shift and make out. Ok, I'm sure a tiger's tongue would feel fabulous but sheesh. He can shift just a hand, so why the whole body? And then she goes exploring HIM, WHILE HE'S SHIFTED!!! AND STARTS TO BLOW HIM!!!!! Augh! At least he shifted back when she started that. Blargh. I can't quite get the image out of my head.

And that, friends, is why I didn't give it 5 stars.
