Still struggling with his recent breakup, Alexander runs headlong—literally—into a witch who leaves him far less than human. Now a wise-cracking cat with a taste for expensive clothes, he is forced to live with the ex he can't get over and help the man find someone who will finally make him happy.

Cats can do no wrong in my book. Throw in a cat somewhere in a story and I’m typically sold. But Alex isn’t your typical cat. After getting turned into one, he’s as prissy as ever, insisting on designer wear, barely tolerates stupidity and yet remains the most self-sustaining cat I’ve ever read about.

‘Puss in Prada’ is so unique, so heartbreakingly funny and bittersweet that I was way too sorry when it ended. It’s also way too short for my liking because I was enjoying every minute of the snide, quirky and cute story told from the POV of a man-cat, who simply needed to learn some things about himself before that spell got broken.

For something so short though, Marie Jacquelyn does in many ways, capture the ‘tao’ of cats. I saw Alex superimposed over a cat and a cat’s prideful but independent ways superimposed over Alex’s own personality. I loved Alex as much as I loved Ethan, then got depressed when their story ended in a rushed HEA.
