Wild Cat (Shifters Unbound #3) by Jennifer Ashley

When Feline Shifter Cassidy Warden saves detective Diego Escobar from plunging to his death, the naked Shifter woman takes his breath away. But she'd been breaking all kinds of human laws, and Diego, to save her from termination, has to promise his department he'll watch over her. 

Diego finds the task harder than he thinks--Cassidy is trying to find out what kind of mysterious hunter killed her mate two years ago, a hunter that could bring danger to all Shifters. Plus Cassidy has scent-marked Diego--essentially telling all other Shifter females, "Hands off." 

Diego risks his personal and professional life getting involved with Cassidy, but he realizes he'll do anything, even confront the deadliest of assassins and his own inner demons, to keep her safe.

I'm not sure if it was me or the book but I had the hardest time with Wild Cat. It's not a long book, less than 300 pages, but took me nearly four full days to get through. That's an insanely long time for me to spend on a single book but I just couldn't keep my focus on it at all. And I really don't know why. I love the Shifters Unbound world and have met and adored most of the characters in other books. The hero and heroine were great people and steamy together, the community was there, the action and adventure. But my mind kept wandering off and finding other things to do instead of getting lost in the experience and lives of Diego and Cassidy.

I did love the beginning of everything where Diego, a human cop, arrests Cassidy, a kitty shifter. These two have some great chemistry and attitude together that's fun to watch. And I enjoyed how things developed between them. Diego's pretty bad ass for a human and never backs down from the Shifters that try to intimidate him. Gotta respect that. His family is pretty awesome as well.
"Mi ja. Short for mi hija. It's what you say to someone you care about." 
She smiled. "When you say that you sound--I don't know--affectionate." 
"Maybe I like cats," Diego said. 
Cassidy rested her hand on his chest, and her smile widened. "Meow."
I'm thinking what just didn't work for me was the suspense aspect. Both Cassidy and Diego were out for revenge on the people/beings that killed someone important to them. Diego's partner and friend and Cassidy's mate. It provided the action but something about it just wasn't engaging enough to keep my mind involved. Ah well. I'd still say to give this one a read if you like the series because you get some good background info and development on the characters that makes it worthwhile but this isn't one I'd suggest you start with if you're just picking up the Shifters Unbound series.
