A better title would be it started with feral cats. :) 

Elise is finally free of her controlling aunt, excited to build her life, but she is very broke. She works at an animal shelter and is searching for part-time jobs to supplement her income. Luckily she got the house for half the rent if she did little projects around the house and feed the wild cats, that the previous owner took care of. 

Her new landlord Harris is a good guy, he even gives her a part-time job as the designer for his house flipping business. The more time they spend together, the more sparks fly between them.

When Elise finds out that her aunt took charity money before she left, she is more than determined to make the fundraiser a success. In doing so, she slowly comes out of her shell and starts to make friends. 

Harris has very little patience and is always on the move, but there is something very charming about him. Elise went through significant character development throughout the story, from being shy, and want to blend into the background, to standing up for herself and making friends.

I like the romance but wished there was a bit more tension between them.

happy reading,
