Oscar by Bailey Bradford

 One sexy wolf is determined to show a grouchy kitty just how perfect they are for each other.

Oscar Travis has always been different, and not just because he’s a snow leopard shifter. Petite and pretty in a family where even the women are bigger and stronger than he is, Oscar has been protected by them except the times when no one could keep him safe. When he had to take another shifter’s life to protect his own family, Oscar’s world became a scarier place, at least in his head, not that he’s going to let his family know that. He will, however, help his dad Henry hunt down the cougar shifter who is trying to destroy one of Oscar’s own, his brother in law, Lyndon.

Which is why Oscar finds himself in San Antonio. Curiosity-always Oscar’s potential downfall-is the reason he’s in one of the city’s biggest gay nightclubs. And it’s his bad luck that he is cornered by four obnoxious shifters who are out to ruin his night. Josiah Baker has other plans for Oscar, plans of mates and forever, but once he makes sure his kitten is safe, he’s ditched like a two dollar whore. Good thing he’s a shifter too, and a determined one who doesn’t shy away from Oscar’s attitude. He sees the hurting man behind the pretty façade, and no one is going to keep him and Oscar from the happy ending they deserve.

Unless the cougar shifter Oscar was hunting has anything to say about it. Then Oscar and Josiah’s ending will be painful and in the immediate future.

Reader Advisory: This book is part of a series and is best read in sequence.

We met Oscar in book 1 of the series and there was just something about him that pulled at my heartstrings!  When I started reading this book, it was amazing being able to learn more about Oscar and what he had been through in his life.  And it did explain his little attitude he had going on.
My only real complaint about the book is with this being the second book in the series, I had hoped for some backstory on the snow leopards and just finding out more about them in general.  It was strange to me that they don’t really know anything about their past and haven’t met anyone else like them.
I think that the author did a really great job at Oscar’s character.  With him having been a victim of bullying, I liked how she was able to help show that it made him stronger in a way.  I did also like how she didn’t just have Oscar instantly “get over” what had happened to him in the first book, for me personally, with her adding the detail she did it gave the book a more realistic feel to it.
With Josiah’s character, I really did like him.  I think that his character was written very well and it was really easy to connect with him.
I did like how the action and drama from the first book did end up coming back into this book.  I am only left wondering what to expect in the future books since things went down the way they did in this book.  Will they be as action packed as the others or will they be more calmed down.
I did still enjoy this book, I thought it was a really quick and easy read and the author was able to deliver another great book!
