Housepets turn into soul mates in Cat Class.
Joel, Ascher, Adrian, and Roman lost their parents as kittens. The town witch, Hildegard, took them in and oversaw their adoptions. She ensured each kitten was placed with his soul mate. The girls thought they were getting a best friend and had no idea just how right they were. A year later, their kittens are all grown up and ready to show their mates just how much they love them.
Joel, Ascher, Adrian, and Roman can only turn into humans one day a year. Once they bind with their mates, they will be able to control their shifts fully. Hayden, Penelope, Meliana, and Jessa are their mates. Besides convincing their girls that they love them, they have to bind with their mates or be hunted for their blood. After bonding, their blood changes and is no longer useful to those hunting them.
Megan Slayer gives each couple their own novella. The stories tie together as the previous couples find the new one and create further protection from the enemy. In the last novella, Cat Flash, Adrian and Meli's story, the brothers unite with their mates and activate the protection spell placed on them as kittens. This means that they will finally be safe from their enemies and can focus on living happily ever after.
The stories are short and sweet. Though the author calls them novels, they read more like erotic short stories. If they were taken individually, the characters would not have enough time to build individual personalities. However, placing them in a box set is a good idea because Megan Slayer has written a quartet of interwoven stories that are best considered as a whole. The overarching storyline that binds the four parts together to create a cohesive narrative is the persecution of the kittens by those who want their blood.
A lovely light read and a nice twist on the idea of shifters. Making the men house cats, instead of lions, gives them a vulnerability not often seen in shifter narratives and empowers their mates.
