Blog Tour: A Tiger's Tale by Lisa Oliver (Review)

Blog Tour ~ A Tiger's Tale by Lisa Oliver ~ (Review) 

Title: A Tiger's Tale
Author: Lisa Oliver
Series: Book 1 of The Arrowtown Series
Publisher: Lisa Oliver
Length: 200 pgs

Seth Carmichael never did anything wrong, but instead of working at the local library, he was running for his life. His herd was hunting him and with few resources, Seth's options were fading fast. Until, that is, he heard the rumble of a motorcycle. Peeking through the tree he was hiding in, he couldn't believe his eyes. Had salvation come in the form of a badass biker? 

Ra (no last name and proud of it) was a tiger on a mission. He'd scented his mate and then the little rabbit ran away before his teeth could engage. Ra heard the gossip around Arrowtown; he knew his mate was a hunted man. But if the sweet man was on the run, he needed someone to look after him; Ra figured he was the right man for the job. 

A meeting, a mating and yet another meeting. What should have been a straightforward relationship turned into so much more on their very first outing as a mated couple. Now Ra has to count on the strength of his mate and the help of his friends, if he and Seth are ever to have the HEA they'd planned for. And what was with all these Fae turning up out of the blue? 

Warning: Contains a tiger who keeps putting his foot in it; a tiny lop-eared rabbit who is stronger than he looks and a bunch of friends who’ll hide a body, no questions asked.

3.5 Stars

Generally, I'm a huge Lisa Oliver Fan, her Cloverleah Pack and Stockton wolves series are absolutely wonderful and I highly recommend them. However, while this was an entertaining read, in my personal opinion, it was a bit too fluffy for me. It's cute, it's fun and there is a lot that goes on in the story, I just found myself in the mood for something a tad more gritty, I think.

I had a bit of a preconceived notion when I read Ra was part of a Motorcycle Club of lone Shifters. I pictured them as these brooding and intimidating Shifters who radiated danger and power and instead we got funny, sweet and quirky. It was a bit of a let down I guess. Luckily, they were the kind of characters you want to see what happens when they get their own story. There are definitely openings for subsequent books.

Would I recommend this book? Yes, if you're in the mood for a fun sweet Shifter story with Mpreg, I think you'll adore this one. If you're looking for a more dark or gritty Shifter tale, however, I'd suggest passing and trying some of Lisa Oliver's other books. There is definitely something for everyone.
