Jill Shalvis! Jill Shalvis! Which means a plethora of quotes today because, seriously, it's Jill Shalvis and the lady just gives the best quips. The Trouble with Mistletoe (yes, yes, it's just a little Christmasy) was so good and had a hilarious cat/hero battle going on. But first a little whiplash...
Elle's gaze hadn't left the front door. "But holy cow hotness, Batman, really, you want to see this."

"Why?"

"He's in a suit, that's why. My eyes don't know what to do with themselves."

Will whipped around so fast she gave herself whiplash.
Okay so the hero got himself stuck with a cat and they were in full out battle mode which was just a riot...
...five minutes later she and Keane walked out to his truck. He set the cat carrier carefully in the backseat like maybe it was a ticking bomb but made her smile when he hesitated and then locked a seatbelt around it.

When he caught her watching, he shrugged. "She's just ornery enough to knock herself off the seat and die and then come back to haunt me, so I'm taking all necessary precautions." 
Ha! Yeah. Pretty much.  
"Is there anyone there with you?" she asked.

He turned his phone so she could see that he was in his bedroom at Vallejo Street, alone except for Pita sleeping on his pillow.

"I thought she wasn't allowed on your pillow."

"She's not," he said. "But apparently she's the ruler and I'm just her bitch."
 And a little aw...
"Maybe I've already died and gone to heaven."

She lifted her hand with a smile. "You think this is heaven?"

"You're touching and kissing me," he said. "So yeah, I think this is heaven."

The Trouble with Mistletoe (Heartbreaker Bay #2)

Things that make me happy: Jill Shalvis. Jill Shalvis makes me happy. lol 

The Trouble with Mistletoe was a laugh out loud, warm the heart, can't wait for Christmas read. I loved the characters, their foibles, the circle of friends and the grumpy cat that tortured the hero. So much fun! 

So the quick of it is that Willa owns a pet shop and one day man shows up at the door with a cat from hell in his hands and in desperate need of help dealing with it. She remembers him but he doesn't so much remember her or any of the pain he caused her way back when they were teenagers. He's captivated. Too bad she's still full on ready to hold a grudge!

Willa and Keane were an entertaining pair. Some growls and grumbles and then teasing and swoonage and yummy naughtiness. I really liked both of them. They both have some attachment issues that they had to work though but gah they were good together. Both total softies when it came to animals or people in their lives (even if they didn't realize it)

The cat/hero relationship. Now. Yall. This was probably my favorite part. It was hilarious! His aunt needed a cat sitter and Keane was it. Big ol' sexy hero vs one sassy cat. He grumbled and grouched over it but also made sure she was taken care of. Keeping Pita safe and fretting like a new mom and carrying her around in a jeweled cat carrier. It was so freaking cute!

I know it's Christmas-themed and it's like...September but yall it was not bad. The Christmas element was light and more a background thing than the typical in your face sugary sweet Christmas tale. It worked. Even reading it in July (when I gave it a go) lol

All in all, Shalvis is absolutely hands down one author you can't skip. Grab any of her books. They're fab. The Trouble with Mistletoe was a hoot. I just had a blast with it. Get it, yall. Get it. 

Do you have a favorite Jill Shalvis?
Or hero with a kitteh?

Willa Davis is wrangling puppies when Keane Winters stalks into her pet shop with frustration in his chocolate-brown eyes and a pink bedazzled cat carrier in his hand. He needs a kitty sitter, stat. But the last thing Willa needs is to rescue a guy who doesn’t even remember her . . .

Saddled with his great-aunt’s Feline from Hell, Keane is desperate to leave her in someone else’s capable hands. But in spite of the fact that he’s sure he’s never seen the drop-dead-gorgeous pet shop owner before, she seems to be mad at him . . .

Willa can’t deny that Keane’s changed since high school: he’s less arrogant, for one thing—but can she trust him not to break her heart again? It’s time to throw a coin in the fountain, make a Christmas wish—and let the mistletoe do its work . . .
