Cat shifter Sam Finn must travel back to his childhood home at the worst possible time.  Sam’s adoptive wolf shifter father has died and it is full moon.  Adding to Sam’s grief is a run in with his childhood tormentor, wolf shifter Gus Fieri.  However, meeting again after years apart, the tormentor has turned into the seducer and it is Sam Gus wants to seduce. 

Just Like Cats and Dogs has a superb plot of surviving against the odds.  The romantic story is interwoven with humorous interaction between the characters, playful animal antics as well as exceptionally sizzling intimate scenes.  The characters are convincing.  Sam has always felt like an outcast, at home among the wolf pack and in the city living among the cat shifters who reject Sam because he has a wolf scent.  Gus is an outcast because he is gay.  Although Gus is an Alpha, he never attempting to gain that status within the pack.  The storyline has several dramatic scenarios included that added a touch of intensity.

BA Tortuga has a talent for creating very descriptive characters.  I could actually visualize Sam and Gus rolling around on the floor playing in their animal forms.   Just Like Cats and Dogs is a marvelous saga that I enjoyed immensely.
