*Giveaway, Guest Post & Review* The Cats Meow by Stacey Kennedy

The Cat’s Meow
Witch’s Brew Book One
Urban Fantasy Romance
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
ISBN: 9781622668571
Length: Novel
Heat Level: Sensual
Release date: December 13, 2012


A good witch always has a kick-ass back-up plan.

Libby is an Enchantress—a witch gifted by the Goddess to conjure spells. When a magical presence is detected around a recent string of feline slayings, Libby takes the case to uncover the reasons behind the odd deaths. Much to her displeasure, the coven also sends a sexy warlock, Kale, to assist her.

While having the muscle around proves to be useful, fighting the attraction between them is worse than a hex, especially considering Kale is keeping secrets. But soon, Libby has bigger problems than the elusive warlock when her spells turn up clues that point to something far more sinister than slaughtered cats.

Now Libby has landed herself in the midst of an uprising. She trusts no one and isn’t safe—not from the warlocks stirring up trouble. Not from the worrisome rebellion she can’t escape. And certainly not from Kale, who is weaving a very dangerous spell over her heart.

Big hugs to Cecile for letting me stop by to share my newest release, The Cat’s Meow. I’m thrilled to be back! So, of course, if I come by we need to talk about the steamy parts in The Cat’s Meow, right?

Truth be told, there is only one big HOT scene right at the end of the book. Okay, was that a gasp I heard? Yes, that’s a bit unlike me, but I have to be honest the buildup made it all worth it for me. Besides, Libby didn’t give me a choice. As much as I wanted to get Kale and Libby beneath the sheets, Libby is just too smart to allow that to happen. Trust me, I tried to change her mind. I fought with her the entire book, but heck, I understood—Kale is elusive and his sexy ways won’t fool her!

By the end of writing the story, I felt Libby’s sexual frustration, because Kale knew exactly what he wanted and that was her. For Kale, he didn’t grow into having an attraction to Libby. It was there right away and he knew himself well enough not to ignore her appeal over him. He knew from day one something was different about her, something he needed to explore, and something he wouldn’t stop for trying to obtain. And poor Libby had to simply hang on for the ride as Kale did his very best to seduce her.

So, yes, having only one steamy scene is a little less than I would normally do, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot of sexy throughout the story. Kale’s non-stop efforts to gain Libby’s affection made even my cheeks pink. One thing can be said about the warlock, Kale Griffin—when he wants something, he knows exactly how to get it!


Now it is time for my review... And if you are good girls and boys... There will be a giveaway at the end of the review :)

Okay, if you are no stranger to this great Lair, you will know that I am a huge fan of Stacey's work. She is an author that will rock your apples and give you some great action and sweet loving. She create these worlds of which we fall in love with... We get swept up in their drama, in their realm, in their passion and we love her for it. She is an author that will teleport you to another world and make you fall in love... Here we come Kale! Oh yea, just keep reading!

This story is the beginning of wonderful things to come between Libby & Kale and their group of warlocks and witches. This story was riveting with action and you will love Libby's sense of humor... Now Kale.... Well, half the story he will lead you on a chase for information about him that will drive you mad! Mad I say... Mad! He is evasive as shit. He is sworn under an oath that he cannot divulge to much information about himself or his mission. But that does not stop our Libby for asking questions and trying to get some answers out of him! This story will keep you on your toes about - who did what, when and where. You will meet a great group of people that will entertain you... But most of you will meet Libby & Kale... Let's meet them now...

Libby, she is awesome. I love her humor, I love her matter-fo-fact attitude and I absolutely love her loyalties to her coven and her best friend. She would rather die than to hurt either one. She is loyal to her morals and the code of which witches live by. She is an Enchantress; so she knows she has some power... but when a sexy warlock takes an interest in her and her case of dead cat's things start to get really interesting. Libby knows that her coven would love to kick her butt out for her attitude or lack of one and Libby knows they really don't need a "reason" to let her go... But since the sexy man showed up, she feels she has to prove herself and her gifts... But swearing off warlocks was a pact she made to herself in the past... Is she regretting that pact now? Has the evasive warlock met his match or has our little Enchantress finally find a warlock worth her powers?

Kale..... Oh man.. Where do I start with Kale. Well, there really isn't much to know of Kale. He is all sealed up tight, wrapped up with a sexy bow on top! He is not a man of many questions nor answers. But he is amazing once you get warmed up next to him. I will tease you with him because he is one delicious treat once he opens up and Wow when he does open up... You better watch out! :) Oh he is that good But he is protective and loyal to the core. He doesn't take shit from anyone but he also knows how to take the shit, lol... Because believe me - Libby gives him enough shit! LOL!!!

These two make a great combination, even though Libby would love to beg differ with me (at least for the beginning of the story). She would probably try to put a hex on me for even saying that... But once the story starts getting to the ending and we find out the who's and why's.... And it all becomes clear... No, I did not say it became okay... just clear - why who had to do what to who and who did what for whom... Together - even though they have never worked together - they kick some serious ass... Because as Libby would say... "A good witch always has a kick ass back up plan!"

This story is a delightful, deliciously wicked treat to read. The characters bring the story to life... They enthrall you in the magic in the air. Libby's mother, Libby's best friend.. Peyton's boyfriend, Jace. Even the High Pristest. They all bring life to the story but none better than Libby & Kale. They make this all the Cat's Meowing! :) Ms. Stacy done an excellent job at starting off a wonder series! I look forward for more to come!

Stacey Kennedy’s novels are lighthearted fantasy with heart-squeezing, thigh-clenching romance, and even give a good chuckle every now and again. But within the stories you’ll also find fast-paced action, life-threatening moments, and a big bad villain who needs to be destroyed. She lives in Southwestern Ontario with her husband and two children. If she’s not plugging away at a new story—which is rare because her muse is annoying—you’ll find her camping, curling up with the latest flick, or obsessing over Sons of Anarchy, Games of Thrones, Supernatural and Dexter.
