Shem Cowell has been through a lot in the past year. He's lost his parents, his home, and is still wanted by the Hunters who took everything from him. To make matters worse, as the runt of his litter of cheetah shifters, he is completely blind in his human form.
Curtis Booth is a vampire whose brother was involved with the Hunters that destroyed Shem's life. But, from the moment Curtis sees Shem, he knows that the little shifter is his mate. He also knows that he will have to share his mate with another person, though he is willing.
Lt. Dieter "Diets" Sheron is a fireman— a sexy, hot fireman. He is also human. How will they convince him about vampires and shifters, much less that he is their destined mate? Will the three realize that together they can overcome anything or will they let their past force them apart?

What do you get when a blind cheetah shifter, a vampire and a human fireman all come together? Scorching hot love scenes, and a lot of DRAMA. MY ANGEL CHEETAH is the fourth installment in Joyee Flynn's Purrfect Mate series and the story line picks up right where the third one left off.
Curtis Booth is a vampire that is trying to make up for all of the horrible things his brother did. While taking some time, and trying to decide if he is the best person to head the coven that his brother used to run, he stumbles across his mate. Unfortunately his mate comes from one of the families that his brother destroyed.
Shem Cowell is devastated over the loss of his parents, and has been hiding out in his room since being rescued from the human hunters. When he finally does venture out, he meets his mate, which should be a great thing. But Shem is blind and when Curtis makes an innocent comment about it, Shem overreacts and runs from him. The only problem is that once a cat shifter has smelled their mate, they only have 48 hours in which to claim them or they die. When Shem's brothers find him, they convince him that Curtis is a good guy and he should give him a chance.
With the support of Shem and his brothers, Curtis decides to return to his coven and take over the leadership role. His first order of business is to destroy the building in which his brother held the kidnapped shifters. He contacts the local fire dept. to offer them the use of it for a drill. As soon as the two men meet, they know that Lt. Dieter is their third.
Dieter "Diets" Sheron does not understand his instant attraction to the beautiful blind man in front of him but he knows he doesn't want to fight the attraction either. When he learns the truth about both men and the world they live in, he isn't sure he can exist in their world.
I went back and forth in my thoughts on this book. There were some things that I enjoyed about it; I liked the interaction between Shem and his brothers. They formed a strong family unit that supported each other and had each other's backs. The relationship that evolves between Shem and Curtis was nice to read considering the emotional baggage that they started with.
Once Diets was added to the mix, the story lost me. His reactions were back and forth, he is condescending and it bothered me that he didn't want to include Curtis when he was just as much his mate as Shem. The "villain" in this story is almost a non-factor and there is no resolution to that part of the story line, however, that may be to set up future stories but it left this book with an unfinished feeling.
One other thing about Ms. Flynn's books is her use of nicknames, I find myself singing "Say my name, Say my name" every time I read one of her stories. There is once again a lot of editing errors that made staying in the story difficult, and we still have no background mythology about the vampire race. While the story line idea was good, the execution was lacking.
