Once Upon A Tiger by Kat Simons

I read the ebook edition of Once Upon A Tiger by Kat Simons, which is a paranormal romance/erotica novella approximately 130 pages in length. Once Upon A Tiger is also the first book in the Tiger Shifters Series.

I was able to download Once Upon A Tiger by Kat Simons to my Kindle from Amazon for FREE. Below is my honest, unbiased  review of Once Upon A Tiger by Kat Simons.

In general, I like reading paranormal romances/erotica novellas and novels when they are done well. I enjoyed the premise and storyline behind Once Upon A Tiger by Kat Simons. The writing itself was okay, although some minor editing work needed to be done. The characters were decent. But overall, I felt like the storyline needed more punch to it. 

Once Upon A Tiger by Kat Simons was simply an okay read for me... An afternoon reading escape. I won't be continuing with the Tiger Shifters Series.

The following is a plot summary for Once Upon A Tiger by Kat Simons from Amazon:
She’ll never run.
Among the tiger shifters, Alexis Tarasova is regarded as fierce and dangerous, with a reputation that would make even the most daring tiger think twice about challenging her. Female tiger shifters may be rare and the mating run a critical part of their species’s survival, but Alexis is the only female Tracker and will not back down, even at the threat of tiger law. She will not be forced to mate. So when a handful of males band together to force her to participate in the run, Alexis chooses to stand her ground and fight instead.

He's forbidden to run.
Outcast from the tiger shifters after a vicious childhood attack left him mute, Victor Romanov has never taken part in the mate run. He’s never particularly cared, though, since the woman he loves refuses to take a mate. However, when he learns Alexis may be in danger, all bets are off. Nothing will keep him from her side.
Together, they’re unmovable.
The chemistry between them burns wickedly hot and forges them into an unbeatable pair. Alexis knows that being with Victor means she will have to break another one of her people’s laws—a move that might push the tigers too far. But, for Victor, she will risk everything, including her life, and do what she thought she’d never do—run.
I am giving Once Upon A Tiger by Kat Simons a rating of 2 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!


  1. I wonder why Amazon gives all these books away for free.

    1. I notice that if a book/novella/short story is a first in an ebook series and the author is relatively unknown, then it seems to be more likely to be free to readers. The rest of the books/novella/short stories in the series usually aren't free.

      I speculate that Amazon and/or the authors are hoping you'll love the first book in the series enough to buy the rest of them as they are released.

  2. Oh, too bad you didn't like this one; the premise sounded promising.

    1. Yes, the premise was a good one for this book. It just needed a little bit more punch to it.
