    Entertaining

    This book is relatively short, but it is entertaining. I don't usually delve in the romance genre, but most of the free books offered are romance so they seem to be unavoidable. That said, I think this book is worth the read. The two main characters are fairly well developed given the length of the book. The plot wasn't entirely original and the antagonist was pretty flat and a bit unrealistic in my opinion. The focus was on the main characters, which left little for the rest of the story. The author could have spent more time elaborating on surroundings or even creating a more realistic villain. Regardless of the lack of style in the crevices of the story, I still enjoyed reading this book. It's by far one of the better books that are offered for free and would be worth a read on a rainy day.

    Good addition to the supernatural genre

    I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, since the last free ebook I read on vampires was horrible. Knowing the author typically writes fan fiction, I thought this book would be mediocre at best. I was pleasantly surprised. I've become a fan of the supernatural genre over the past few years, and this book was not disappointing. Granted, the story is quite simple - a budding relationship between two people - but the writing is captivating and keeps the reader interested from beginning to end.

    Lucky it was free

    No offense to the writer, but the writing is very uninteresting. I understand that this is her first book, but the wrtiting is bad, the plot is minimal, the characterisation is basic. This would be a much better book if it was rewritten after Gordan got some more experience.

    Black Skin was a page flipper

    This book was really good. There was only one flaw in it. Which is really cool all consitering. I really enjoyed it. I also liked that fact that it is a whole book. I am sad that there isn't any other books done so far that I could find by this author.

    Black Silk by Jan Gordan

    I found it to be a wonderful Paranormal Romance short story. I would gladly recommend it to anyone who is into short stories and sexy shifters. I like reading them while waiting for my favorite series releases. I always find I have so many question in the end left unanswered. Hence the short stories. Lol If not they would be novels or series. So, I say give it a try!

    Overall Good read.

    This is not my normal genre.

    If this is your genre, I would suggest this book.

    I found it a decent read. The concept was at first a little hard for me, but I was able to get into it. It was a quick read. It was not at all predictable.

    Really a great little story!

    I do wish there was more to it this story. I am not much of a romance reader, but there was enough action to keep me interested. Maybe she will read our reviews and opt to give us more of Vic and Cole =)

    my review of black silk

    This story was good. The chareters and plot kept my interest throughout the story line. I have been interested in paranormal romances for many years now and the places they take me as a reader is wonderful. This story did so wonderfully. I felt it could be truely beleivable that were's really exsist the way the story unfolded. My only wish was it was a longer story.

    Who could resist a Hero like this one?

    Just when you've given up on finding Mr. Right, he shows up in the most unexpected way!

    This was my first time reading Jan Gordon. She did a reasonable job with the pacing and the focus of the characters. Had the right amount of secondary characters and several steamy, sex scenes to keep it interesting. I wasn't too thrilled initially with the 1st person point of view, but it worked. Too bad it wasn't a longer story. Maybe there will be a sequel.

    If you like reading about were's (werewolves, vampires etc) I'm betting you will also enjoy this one. Particularly liked the twist that came out in the story as they began to get accquainted. (I'm not giving it away here!)

    Good Read for Lazy Afternoon.

    This was a cute short story. There was no great depth to the Characters or story line, but if you just want a simple, romantic, easy read for a lazy afternoon, this is a Free book that I would recommend. I love the Sci-Fi and Paranomial Genres, which this book ties into well. Just not a very long or indepth story but worth the time it took to read it.

    Interesting Read

    This was an interesting book. It is a pretty easy read, not too difficult or intellectually stimulating, but entertaining all the same. It is about a book store owner who loves paranormal romances and finds that her life becomes one. It is a bit cheesy and not very suspenseful at all - even though it tries to be. But still, it's a nice book. I got it for free and if it is still free, I would recommend downloading it. It's a good easy book that doesn't take much effort. I got it because I like cats and I'm glad I downloaded it.

    Nice story for the genre

    This was a really nice story for this genre. If you like this genre then you will like this. It's an easy rainy day read. I would have liked to have seen the characters fleshed out a little more but for a free novel this was really good. It has the makings of a pretty good series and I will be looking forward to seeing more from this author.

    Good Read

    I thought this book was a good read. I think the story could have been developed over a little more time. Hope this writer keeps it up, could possibly make a good series.

    Excellent story - Highly Recommend!

    Wonderful characters, totally love Cole and Mouse! Kept me reading t the end and wanting for the next book. Never heard of a were-panther, but Ms. Gordon's style makes you believe. Thanks for an excellent story!

    My first morphing character read

    This is the first story I have read that dealt with morphing characters, if you do not count Stephanie Meyers' Twilight series. I enjoyed reading about the characters and their story line. The romance between the cat / man and the bookstore owner is believable and you want things to go well for them. I like the way the author describes the interaction of these two and lets us glimpse in to their lives with their descriptions of their living spaces and actions. This is a light summer or rainy day read and I would recommend it for any one that wants to escape in to a book for a few hours.

    About What One Would Expect From This Genre

    If this were any other genre, I'd rate the book less than 1 star! This isn't a book I would have paid for - I got it as a free e-book and it held my attention for the couple of hours it took to read it. It's a short book (story?), so there really isn't any character development and the plot is flimsy. Good for an afternoon of light reading with sexual overtones.
