Review: Flogged By The Ferret

Flogged By The Ferret Flogged By The Ferret by Caitlin Ricci
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A ferret is a cute and adorable pet, right? For a shifter to shift into a little cute furry rodent, how can they be threatening? Well, first of all, ferrets are not rodents. They are part of the weasel family and they can be ferocious. Nero is a ferret shifter who works in law enforcement. He is used to being the one who protects. So it is natural for him to also be a dominant. When he is alerted to a possible kidnapping of Lady Leo's son Amani, Nero is the shifter for the job.

This story is really too cute for me. I thoroughly enjoyed Nero's character. He is steadfast, protective, patient and a lovely dominant. Amani the lion cub is so adorable too. He plays at being all big and wild but he really is a sweet kitty. The dynamic between these two characters is so smooth. They fit together well with their personalities and desires. It is fun to see Amani's misconceptions be busted up by Nero.

The conflict of this story is a bit dark, with Amani kidnapped and being held as a sexual slave to a man he doesn't like or want. This story still isn't what I would classify as dark because authors Ricci and Marcus balance it out so that it is palatable. They don't gloss over the kidnapping, but they show it in a way where it isn't so depressing or frightening. It's hard to describe. I'm not sure exactly how they did it either, but it is well done.

The kink in this story is spot on. Well, with shifters and all. The flogging is delicious and it just goes to show, one never knows who is a dominant and who is not based on body size. Nero possesses a wicked throwing arm and he puts Amani into happy land.

The world building continues in this story. The sharks play another dastardly part. It will be interesting to see what Lady Leo will do next. I'm hooked on this series and can't wait for the next one to be published. This paranormal romance is recommended for m/m readers who enjoy breaking stereotypes.
