Calvin Summers and Ethan Hobbs have been best friends since childhood, but somewhere along the line, their friendship evolved into something more. With the Therian Youth Center bombing, Calvin realizes just how short life can be and no longer keeps his feelings for his best friend a secret. Unfortunately, change is difficult for Ethan; most days he does well to deal with his Selective Mutism and Social Anxiety. Calvin’s confession adds a new struggle for Ethan, one he fears might cost him the friendship that’s been his whole world for as long as he can remember.

As partners and Defense Agents at the THIRDS, being on Destructive Delta is tough at the best of times, but between call-outs and life-threatening situations, Calvin and Ethan not only face traversing the challenges of their job, but also working toward a future as more than friends.

Story Review:

The THIRDS series is always a winner and Catch a Tiger by the Tail is a great addition. I loved seeing Calvin and Hobbs together. Getting to hear their inner thoughts was a treat.

We still get tons of Dex and Sloan, who are still my favourite couple. However, tigers have always had a spot in my heart and Ethan Hobbs is there too. It was enlightening and heartbreaking to hear his thoughts as his selective mutism prevent us from knowing much about him. Hearing both his and Calvin’s backstory added so much to the series.

The action parts were suspenseful and the rest was laden with humour. The story was well paced and engaging.

The ending left me on tenterhooks and I can’t wait for the next book to be out! How I hate cliffhangers! Don’t let that dissuade you from reading this though. It was worth it.

Narration Review:

I really like Mark Westfield’s performance in this series. I wasn’t as enamoured by Hobbs voice though as it sounded quite whiney at times. I love, though, that I can tell all the characters apart and I could even tell that this wasn’t a Dex and Sloan book just by the general narration. The different POV stayed true to the character’s voice.
