BOOK REVIEW: Monster’s Plaything by C.R. Jane and Mila Young #monsters #eroticromance #darkromance #kindleunlimited #bookreview

The Monster King wants to play…

It’s been 1097 days and 14 hours since I’ve been locked in this place.

And they’ve come to me every night.

The monsters in my dreams worship my body.

And when I wake up, I’m desperate for more…

But they’re never there to finish me off.

Dr. Holloway says I can leave the asylum if I start to take my meds, but I’ve always hated how they made me feel…and I’m not sure that I agree with them that I’m actually crazy.

Because dreams don’t make you crazy, right?

I’ve got to start living someday though…so I finally take the plunge and obey so I can get out.

My dreams stop, and the monsters disappear. I’m finally starting a new life.

And that’s when he comes…the monster king.

Evidently my little dreams, weren’t just dreams. And he and his demon horde were feeding off my lust.

Their glowing eyes, sharp teeth, jagged claws…and big c**ks…

They’re all real.

The Monster King wants me back. I’m their favorite plaything after all.

And I just might want to play.

My Review – 4 1/2 stars

4 1/2 stars

Mila Young is a one-click author for me. I’m not as familiar with C.R. Jane’s work, but the cover alone would have made me buy this book. It’s gorgeous, and oh so sexy.

Blake has spent her life trying to please her parents, and toe the line. Until the day she sees something she shouldn’t have and ends up in an asylum. It’s not all bad though. There’s the charismatic, easy-on-the-eyes doctor after all. Sure, each day is full of dangerous pitfalls, but it’s nothing Blake can’t handle.

For the most part, I enjoyed Blake’s character. There were times I wanted to give her a kick in the rear, but overall, she stayed true to herself. At first, she comes across as weak. Always following orders, doing whatever she’s told (even if it’s detrimental to herself). It isn’t until later in the story she finds her inner strength and decides to fight back.

The monsters in the book were each intriguing in their own way. There were one or two scenes that might trouble sensitive readers, but for the most part, this one is smokin’ hot story! If you like your monster books full of sex (and an extra dose on the side), then Monster’s Plaything is a must-read!

Be warned.. it ends on a cliffhanger that will have you screaming and begging for the rest of the story… The next installment can’t get here soon enough.

BOOK REVIEW: I Married a Minotaur by Regine Abel #bookreview #monsters #fantasyromance #kindleunlimited

Tiny, sassy, but oh so fierce

​Rihanna is condemned to a twenty-year sentence on the most savage prison planet in the sector for a crime she didn’t commit. On the day of her transfer, she’s offered a deal to commute her sentence: an arranged marriage with a grumpy orc-minotaur who has muscles for days, devilish red eyes, and an insufferably smart mouth. Despite his species’ reputation for being violent brutes, Rihanna soon finds herself drawn to the gentle giant that lurks beneath his terrifying appearance.

Fearsome, savage, and yet so fluffy

When the agency informs Zatruk he’s been matched, the last thing he expects is for his mate to be such a tiny human. With his people rapidly entering blood rage, and the looming threat of war, he needs a queen to stand by his side as he strives to save his people, not a delicate flower. But he soon discovers that behind her fragile appearance, his little female hides a fierce and dauntless soul, with a sassy attitude that stirs him in unexpected ways.

With time running out, will Rihanna be the blessing he needs to achieve the peace his people desperately desire, or will they self-destruct?

MY REVIEW – 5 stars

Another fabulous addition to this series!

When you read a Prime Mating Agency book from Regine Abel, there are certain things you expect. An unusual hero, a determined human heroine, action, a problem to solve, and lots of steamy sex.

I Married A Minotaur delivered on every single one!

I adore big brutish heroes who have a soft touch when it comes to their women. As the Chieftain, Zatruk has to be more fierce than most. He not only needs to defend his new mate, but his clan as well… even if it means saving them from themselves. I loved the way he tried to solve things peacefully and with reason, but didn’t hesitate to use force when necessary. He was the perfect leader.

Rhianna is a tough heroine. She’s a take-charge, don’t back down, type of woman, and I loved her. I especially enjoyed the verbal sparring between her and Zatruk. It kept me smiling, laughing, and eagerly turning the pages.

This was definitely a book I couldn’t put down! And that cover… love, love, love the cover!

BOOK REVIEW: Half-Orc’s Maiden Bride by Ruby Dixon #fantasyromance #kindleunlimited #orcs #bookreview

Lady Iolanthe of Rockmourn Keep expects to be a spinster all her days. She is very tall. She is very poor. And she is thirty. What lord could possibly want her?

But then her father returns with news that he has found a bridegroom for her – one that is impressively tall. One that is strong, and bold, and wealthy. And best of all? He wants Iolanthe. It seems too good to be true.

And when Iolanthe gets her first look at her husband-to-be, she realizes why.

No one mentioned the ‘orc’ part of things…

Add to Goodreads

My Review – 5 stars

I discovered Ruby Dixon a few years ago, and have since devoured everything she’s written. Since I adore orc romances, I was super excited to see she had an orc book out! The Half-Orc’s Maiden Bride isn’t your typical orc romance though. The hero is trying to walk in two worlds but is determined the humans will accept him. When I came up with the plan to purchase a lady’s hand in marriage, he never counted on actually liking her.

The heroine is tall and considered plain by all except her husband-to-be. As someone who’s barely five feet tall, it wasn’t a predicament I could really connect with, but I still loved her character. Iolanthe’s personality is a mix of sweet and charming, with some brave and cunning mixed in. She’s all kinds of awesome.

There’s a bit of action in this one, but not a lot. It’s mostly the build-up of the relationship between Iolanthe and Agarok. Sometimes a slower-paced book is just what’s needed, and this one left a smile on my face.

BOOK REVIEW: Rescued by the Orc Chieftan by Celeste King #fantasyromance #orcs #bookreview

Rescued by the Orc Chieftan is a perfectly delightful addition to the series. If you haven’t read Celeste King’s orc romances, you’re missing out!

Yrish is often taken over by madness during battle. His fellows orcs fear him, and with good reason. But one small human woman changes everything. Camille is fearless, and will do anything to give her sister a better life. But she didn’t count on actually liking the orc who kidnapped her.

Yrish is strong. Fierce. And yet he’s gentle too. When it comes to Camille and his feelings for her, he’s just as insecure as most guys. It made him endearing, the way he worried over to show Camille he wanted her as his mate.

Camille has fought long and hard to keep her little sister safe and fed. Watching her learn to trust an orc, a creature she’d thought of as the enemy, was entertaining to say the least. And it also proves that you can’t always judge someone by their looks. The brutish orc showed her more tenderness and concern than the humans she’d been living with.

Another 5 star read from Ms. King! I can’t wait to see what happens next with these super sexy orcs! I’ll be eagerly waiting for the next book…. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Celeste King loves to write about naughty aliens and sassy humans. When worlds collide, there’s sure to be humor and romance, and that’s what gets her in front of the keyboard every day.

Telling the stories that are in her brain. Most people would be worried if they couldn’t stop thinking about imaginary voices, but since she started writing down the crazy “what ifs” that occur to her, it’s an exciting adventure.

Her cat, her keyboard, and her husband keep her busy and happy alongside a nice mug of green tea. She doesn’t enjoy them in that order… necessarily.

She’s busy at work on books in her Kaleth world, where human culture is just the guilty pleasure the rest of the universe shares.

NEW RELEASE: Teacher’s Pet (Darkville High) by Eva DeMoan #erotica #apocalypse #monsters @EvaDeMoan

Available in Kindle Unlimited

Chaos. Pain. Destruction. It’s all anyone knew after the rift opened and monsters entered our world. The things of nightmares, horror stories. The beasts that hid in the night. They’re all real, and they’re here. When my parents moved us to Darkville and enrolled me at Darkville High, I knew I was to be sacrificed for their happiness. Now I have a choice… become the pet of a monster, or be cast out into the world, where survival isn’t guaranteed.

NOTE: Teacher’s Pet was first offered in Kindle Vella July 2021. The content has not changed. This is a short monster erotica with very little plot and character development.

EXCERPT

Copyright 2021, Eva DeMoan

I stepped back into the hall and tried to make myself small. A female gargoyle walked past with her human toy on a leash. The boy was naked except for a leather collar around his neck, and his wrists were bound. Either he enjoyed belonging to her, or she’d drugged him because his cock stood erect. My cheeks warmed as I eyed him. Until I’d come here, I’d only seen naked people on TV, or on the porn I wasn’t supposed to watch. His cock wasn’t anywhere near as big as the ones I’d just had my hands on.

“Like what you see, little human?” a deep voice asked, startling me. I glanced up and saw one of the teachers, an orc called Mr. Blade. I doubted it wasn’t his actual name and had more to do with the sword he carried.

“I was just going to class,” I murmured.

He leaned and sniffed at me, growling deep in his chest. “My classroom. Now.”

I hastened to follow him, trying not to shake in fear as he shut the door. He prowled closer, his eyes nearly glowing as he took me in. He stopped beside me and reached out, lifting my skirt with his large green hand. I gasped and forced myself to hold still.

“Pretty,” he said, his voice getting raspy. “You wanted the human boy. Coveted the possession of a gargoyle.”

“N-no. I wasn’t… I didn’t…”

“I smell you, little human. Your cunt is wet.”

My eyes went wide at his words and I pressed my thighs together. I still wasn’t used to them being able to smell me. His words only served to make my pussy throb harder, the need in me building until it was nearly painful.

Mr. Blade walked behind his desk and pointed at the floor in front of him. I set my books aside and hurried to where he stood, my heart hammering in fear as I wondered how he’d punish me. Although I had to wonder if it wasn’t fear of the punishment, or more worry over the fact I might enjoy it. I’d heard the moans of more than one student locked behind a teacher’s classroom door. Yes, they took what they wanted, but seemed the girls, or boys, enjoyed it too.

“Over the desk and lift your skirt,” he said.

ABOUT EVA DEMOAN

Eva DeMoan loves erotica, both writing and reading it. The filthier, and the kinkier, the better. While Eva has always loved monster books and movies when she saw the World of Warcraft movie she fell head over heels for Durotan, the orc Chieftan. That’s when Eva decided to start writing some monster stories of her own.

BOOK REVIEW: Demon Kept (Resurrection Chronicles) by MJ Haag #darkfantasy #apocalypse #bookreview @AuthorMJHaag

Sometimes the past won’t stay dead.

Shelby’s suffered at the hands of her husband for too long. Rather than endure another beating, she risks everything and escapes with the creatures who brought about the downfall of the world.

The fey aren’t as horrible as her husband made them out to be. Sure they can kill with a flick of their fingers, but they’re also loyal, built like gods, and craving female affection. With the fey, Shelby might finally find a sense of safety and even a second chance at learning what real love looks like.

But it’ll take more than one fey to keep her safe from a past that isn’t yet ready to be history.

Add to Goodreads

MY REVIEW – 5 stars

Another wonderful addition to the series. And I’m so glad Shelby wasn’t punished for the sins of her awful husband. It warmed my heart for her to get a happily-ever-after.

**SPOILER* ALERT*

I hate spoilers, but it’s really hard to review this book without one. Major plot point most won’t see coming.

This is the only book in this series that’s a reverse harem, and I LOVED IT !! It breaks my heart this series is nearly over. I would love to see another pairing of a human woman and two fae.

This book has all the feels. Heartbreak. Hope. Happiness.

I think it may be my new favorite in this series.

BOOK REVIEW: Dark Fire (Fireblood Dragon) by Ruby Dixon #darkfantasy #PNR #bookreview

Azar has taken over Fort Dallas. He rules with complete authority, and everyone bows down to him.

Everyone except one woman. Melina, the fort’s medic. No matter what he offers, she refuses to give in. A good man would know to stop asking. Unfortunately for Melina, Azar is not a good man.

ADD TO GOODREADS

MY REVIEW – 5 stars

Looking for an anti-hero? Azar is certainly no one’s idea of Prince Charming. He’s been hated by the other characters in every book since we first met him.

I loved getting to see why he reacted to things the way he did. It was nice seeing Melina humanize him, make him want to be a better person.

Once I started reading this book, I didn’t want to put it down. It was simply amazing. Yes, it does touch on topics that might be difficult for some people to read, but I wouldn’t exactly call it a “dark romance”. So if you’re used to the super dark Mafia books and such, this one won’t come close to that level of darkness. For me, it was more gray than pitch black.

Melina is fierce, determined, and such a strong character. She also has the softest heart, only wanting what’s best for others. In that instance, I was happy she had Azar. He was set on her taking better care of herself, and Melina didn’t seem to have that ability. She’d give and give until she had nothing left, then try to give some more.

Loved seeing more of the babies and the other couples!

I won’t give anything away, but the ending is… wow! Such a major surprise. I don’t know if this will be the last book, but I hope not. I’d love to see what happens when the other single dragons find their mates, because this book was a major game changer.

BOOK REVIEW: Orc’s Property by Celeste King #fantasyromance #orcs #bookreview

I don’t know how much longer I could have kept running from the Battle Frenzy orcs who were looking to kill me and my young nephew.

Finally, limbs quivering and breath in ragged gasps, I collapsed as they towered over us, ready to end our lives.

Until Jiwal saved us.

An orc from the Raging Storm clan, he killed the other orcs as easily as I would swat a fly. Then he took me and my nephew and brought us to his manor.

His kind has decimated our way of life. They trade humans for labor and as mates. My sister is dead because of them. And I’m not about to let them kill my nephew.

But there is something different about this orc.

I feel safe with him. I crave nestling deep into his gigantic body and being wrapped in his big arms. He is my savior and my home – something I’ve gone far too long without. I’d forgotten what it’s like to trust another being, but he’s reawakened that in me.

This orc makes my heart race. He’s noble and kind. My warrior. My protector. But most importantly…

My Beloved.

Author’s Note: Orc’s Property is a full length monster romance that features a giant Orc with eyes for his beloved, curvy, human. Action and adventure abound as well as steamy scenes between the tiny human and giant Orc. HEA guaranteed.

Get it in Kindle Unlimited

MY REVIEW – 5 stars!

Are you looking for a fierce heroine who stops at nothing to protect those she loves? A hero who’s both strong and tender hearted? Then you definitely need to read Orc’s Property!

Jane has known only pain from orcs, and will stop at nothing to protect her nephew. Even if it means trusting a strange orc. She’s outspoken, determined, and brave.

Jiwal is an orc unlike any we’ve met before. He’s well-read, even tempered, and loves his people. But it doesn’t mean he’s weak. In fact, his differences make him stronger.

The two have a slow burn romance that erupts into a fiery passion once they come together. There are bloody scenes, and one in particular some readers may find difficult to read, but the story is beautifully written.

Looking forward to the next Orc book from Ms. King!

Synopsis

An angry, dead spirit is useless – until it becomes the living Haint in your bed!

Warning: This is a Razor’s Edge Monster Erotica Story. Expect limited plot and character development, and lots of paranormal heat. If you’re looking for a lengthy plot driven erotic romance, this is not it!

JD Tolliver begins research for his thesis on paranormal phenomena as a nonbeliever. He believes now. A ghost or angry spirit, a true haint, follows JD from Appalachia. His finding a suitable body so he can leave poses a problem — $it has JD by the balls@!

Coll Collins spent over a hundred years locked in silence. Suddenly freed, he discovers that gay hate crimes are not a thing of the past. The stranger he attaches himself to is sassy and, to Coll, sexy as hell. Never had the pleasure of a soft young man, and Coll plans to take advantage every single night until he returns home.

Excerpt

Dropping his bag by the door, JD headed straight to the kitchen for a glass of milk. Bringing the glass with him, he collected his suitcase and pulled it to his bedroom. Couldn’t wait to check out a few scavenged treasures from his trip to the Appalachian area on the border of Tennessee and Virginia. He’d thought the area would be a good place to begin research for his thesis on paranormal phenomena.

Wished his father understood JD’s interest in experimental psychology. Heck, considering he couldn’t get the man to call him anything aside from James David, as if JD left some sort of unsavory tag on the Tolliver name, seemed highly unlikely the old man would ever change his mind about JD’s interests.

Opening his carryon, JD retrieved an item he hadn’t dared leave to baggage handlers. Discovered it in a dusty, trash strewn corner of a soon-to-be demolished old mansion in Laurel Bloomery, Tennessee. The small cube-shaped box smelled of cedar, and JD had kept it safely on his person the remainder of his trip. It resided in a bag on his lap during the flight. Risky, considering he discovered every time the box was close he got a raging hard-on. Not a prude by a long shot, but his bookish looks led men to believe he was… well… virginal.

Turning it over and over in his hands, still couldn’t fathom how to open it. No key hole, no seams at all; just a tiny, plain wooden box slightly larger than a jewelry box that might hold a ring. Could darn near close it in the palm of his hand. “What treasure are you hiding?” He reached for his crotch to arrange the growing bulge into a more comfortable position. Lost in pleasure, he continued to massage his growing hardness until drops of cum dampened underwear. Yes, JD needed to get laid. “Um, feels good.”

He couldn’t stop. Shoved his hand inside pants, used pre-cum to facilitate jerking off. Sound of wet hand against skin sliding back and forth over his crown darn near had him coming full force in his pants.

His phone vibrating in his jacket pocket created a colossal mess. Jumping, JD knocked into the glass on his nightstand, sending milk everywhere and his precious box sailed through the air. “No!” When it hit the floor and broke, JD strangled on air caught in his throat as he glimpsed a shiny object roll beneath his chest of drawers. Thick, white smoke billowed into the room. Smelling like cedar, it swirled and swirled before floating over to envelop him. JD swore it was an attempt to molest his body. “Oh Lord!”

“Knew you’d have the cutest little ass.”

Tripping backward, JD hit the bed and watched the white cloud plummet downward. Substance felt weighty and JD nearly fainted.

A gruff voice murmured, “Thank you for freeing me.”
