Better Than Catnip by Ruth J. Hartman Book Review

Roxy Williams adores cats. Always has. That’s why she devotes her life to running her stray cat shelter. But is that enough? Isn’t there a man out there who will love her for who she is? A special man who won’t try to change her or ask her to choose between him and her cats?

Max Weller has a problem. His son, Derek, must complete community service for fighting at school. The only available place is the stray cat shelter. But Derek is terrified of cats from a frightening childhood experience. How will they get through this traumatic experience?

Roxy and Max feel the strong attraction pulling them together as Max volunteers at the shelter, too. Will they be able to keep the spark alive? Or will Derek’s fears come between them?

I took part for the first time in a Book Club on Facebook with Astraea Press. You receive the book of the month for free if you are interested in taking part that month. You are not obligated to post a review but it does help the author if you leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads.  

My thoughts:  I gave this book 4 out of 5 Meows. 

This is a definitbook for cat lovers, if you don't like cats you wont want to read this book as it takes place at a cat shelter. The owner is Roxy and most of the story is around the cats or involving cats in the shelter with some romance.  One day a boy and his father come to the shelter just before opening and tell Roxy that the boy, Derek is there for community service. Derek's dad, Max is a hunk in Roxy's eyes and she is interested in him sticking around to help at the shelter with his son. Max and Roxy start to fall for each other but with all romances there ups and downs and sometimes obstacles. 

This is a great romance comes with one big obstacle, Derek has a huge fear of cats. Cats are Roxy's whole world and she doesn't really want to live without them but she really likes Max. Roxy is trying to help Derek overcome his huge fear of cats.  This novel moves at a great pace, not too rushed but not slow moving either. I love how Derek is put in a place to have to either run or overcome his cat fears. Roxy and Max both need to learn to have a relationship when a kid is involved and Max is just really becoming a father as he didn't have custody to his son until now. 

This is a cat lovers romance that is a clean read, very enjoyable and I look forward to reading more of Ruth J. Hartman's books.
