Summary taken from Goodreads:

Passion. Fate. Loyalty.

Would you risk it all to change your destiny?

The last thing 17-year old Kelsey Hayes thought she’d be doing this summer was trying to break a 300-year-old Indian curse. With a mysterious white tiger named Ren. Halfway around the world. But that’s exactly what happened. Face-to-face with dark forces, spellbinding magic, and mystical worlds where nothing is what it seems, Kelsey risks everything to piece together an ancient prophecy that could break the curse forever.

Tiger’s Curse is the exciting first volume in an epic fantasy-romance that will leave you breathless and yearning for more.






The first few chapters of the books were a little awkward for me, but the author quickly found her pacing and really took off with a epic love story.  I didn't like Kelsey at first- she felt superficial and not whole as a character.  By the end of the book, Kelsey had really grown into herself and developed into a very complex character.  I LOVE Ren and Kishan.  Who wouldn't want to be swept off their feet by these two?  

Wow!  This was such a magnificent book.  I was easily swept away by the fairy tale that Coleen Houck created.  What a fantastic idea to use the story of Beauty and Beast and entirely recraft it using Tigers and India.  I loved reading about Kelsey's time in India, and was extremely jealous of her!  Two gorgeous tigers, two gorgeous men, a huge mansion, a new wardrobe, and all of that food?  WHEW!  
  Bella and Edward who?  I am team Ren and Kelsey all the way (or am I team Kelsey and Kishan?)
