I chose to read this title as I love shifter romance, however, I was not aware that it was a novella. As a general rule I tend to avoid novellas.  I find that they are too short and as a result the story is rushed or character development is limited. However, since I made a commitment to read and review this title I had no choice but to go against my own rule.
Well, after completing Purr-fect Mating my reasons for not reading novellas were reiterated.  The characters were not sufficiently developed. There was no growth. There was no background information, especially as it relates to the curse that had been placed on the main characters.  The story was told from the POV of Fhina, the main female character.  It would have been good to also have Wulfar’s POV as it would help to understand what was his take on the effects of the curse.
What I loved about this story is that it was unique and magical. Here we read about a family of shifters that were a mixed breed.  For example Fhina is a cat shifter and her twin Bella is a wolf shifter.  It would have been nice to learn more about this family dynamic.
I also liked that the story was sweet and fast paced. It was entertaining and it held my attention from the first page. The ending was somewhat predictable.  
Regardless, this is an interesting read. If you like novellas and shifter romance, then get yourself a copy of Purr-Fect Mating.

I never set out to be an author. Only a story teller. Some days I succeed better than others.
