Best Alien/Monster Sex Love story I've read in a while with fully developed characters and plot.
Some of my Goodreads friends love tentacle sex (I don't judge). I can honestly say I'm not a fan of tentacles.
The hero has tentacles but thank goodness this book did not have any tentacle sex. Just a good old fashion penis!
Too many books of this genre aren't fleshed out as a full novel, but are novellas with great sex but not a well developed storyline. The series has ...more
It's been my first book about this kind of merpeople, but damn I liked it. It was well written, I liked the characters and their slow dance around each other.
Of course, as all the stories about aliens, it was totally fetishized, completely improbable and utterly unrealistic, but if you roll with it, you also get a sweet love story of two different yet so similar creatures, who are re ...more
"For her, anything."Now this is how you turn an 'I'm sorry, what?' story about a kraken and a human into an 'OMG, that was pretty wonderful! story about true love against all odds.
Kudos to the authors.
Because while Treasure of the Abyss was partly salacious . . .
Even the thought of his tentacles caressing her made her shiver - not with repulsion, but with want.. . . it was mostly sweet, and involved a Hero who was devoted to his mate.
Let me start with the basic story, I loved it, a race of beings that were genetically engineered by ancient colonists, to be slaves are living fairly peacefully generations (centuries?) later after overthrowing their human masters makes this an almost automatic "I love that plot".
Jax upsets the balance of the human/kraken who are both living almost unknown of the others existence by rescu ...more
This is NA, ergo pretty silly heroine, plot and setting too. Moving in space doesn't change anything, it's still stupid, unbelievable and insta everything. You just add the ick factor of sex with Ursula (some of it were ugh? His lower part are octopus, and how the heck does he breathe and walk on land???).
Get rid of the Aquaman hype: you see a teen oh so suffering because her family/society mistreats her, she's saved/kidnapped by ene ...more
I really didn't know how I would feel about a hero that was so 'alien' from humans yet so very human! But I fell in love with Jax! He is wonderful and kind and sexy and different! LOL
"Because you are a treasure I plucked from the sea, and you are mine!'' Sigh....
And Macy is brave and adventurous and sweet and sexy. I just fell in love with both of them and you will too!
Wonderful world bui ...more
THIS WAS AMAZING! If you're a fan of Ruby Dixon's big blue aliens and dragons YOU WILL LOVE THIS!
Sweet hero, adorable heroine. Lots of action/adventure and allllll the swoons. Crazy hot and lots of detailed world building that tells me the authors were fantasy readers before they decided to write.
I'm totally jumping into book 2 because the supporting characters were so compelling I can't wait for their stories! ...more
Reread - This is exactly what the day needed, some kraken fun.
Merfolk May is Kraken Awesome!
Long ago on a planet far far away a race of beings was created to serve as deep water laborers.
They took a name to inspire fear in the surviving humans.
Three hundred years later Macy, a humble gardener, will cross paths with a kraken. The results...
This will require further reading. ...more

It was rather refreshing to read an adult romance fantasy book that doesn't focus only on one thing like so many other books do. It had everything, body and soul, a good story structure, strong leading characters, interesting supporting characters and closure.
It felt real and down-to-earth. I never once thought it exaggerating ...more
Macy is a nice young woman plagued with guilt for a childhood mistake which led to the death of her sister. Convinced she must do penance, she devotes her life to the good of others and trying to please her parents at the cost of her own happiness. When she meets Jax, her world is turned upside down and she's forced to face her demons, her true desires, as well as the past o ...more
This sort of weird thing makes my recovering-weeaboo self think of tentacle hentai, but what we have is more along the lines of an alien erotica and not what I imagine when I think of tentacle hentai, though I suppose "alien" isn't the right word because the kraken didn't organically develop on an alien planet but are the creation of human scientists on an alie ...more
So this planet is not Earth, though it's basically earth like. Humans colonized it ...more
Jax the Wanderer. That is the name his people have given him because he doesn't like to stay in their home. He likes to explore and his exploring leads him to saving a human girl from the storm. Humans are the enemy. But this one is different. ...more
The story was very original and I really had no clue how the two would work out being part of one another's lives and resolve issues like being free to choose one another, etc.
I think I know who the next book will be about - at least I hope I do and can't wait to read it! ...more
I honestly think that the reason why I didn't love this book as much as some other people is because I'm dumb. Hahaha! I just did not really understand or connect the alien jargon and terms.
This was super fun though!!

This book is set in a futuristic world, where humans have settled off of earth. Macy grew up there and it has been hundreds of years since her people made it their home. Not ...more
As a child Macy always loved the sea, however, after a tragic event took her sister’s life, she has avoided it. Instead she takes comfort in the routine of her life and her friends. When she goes to the sea for the first time in years with a friend the worse happens and their boat capsizes in a storm she gets rescued. Only her rescuer isn’t quite human. When Jax saves the human woman, he has no idea of the havoc she will cause not only with the kraken people…but with his own heart.
I remember watching it for what it was. Two beings, despite all odds, who wanted desperately to be together. I thought it was touching, and beautiful, and I didn't find a single odd thing about their love. My husband would say otherwise; but he's not romantic, and would certainly never fathom to find love between two beings whom are clearly as differen ...more
To be fair. . . I wouldn't call this an alien romance. Yes, it takes place on a planet not Earth but I can't qualify the krakens as aliens. Now, this might be a spoiler but I don't think it is but all the same in the spoiler tag it goes. (view spoiler)[I'd classify them more as a science experiment, I mean humans genetically spliced octopoid DNA and combined it with human DNA to basically create a whole new species. Not alien, maybe monster? but not alien. (hide spoiler)]
It was interesting enoug ...more
No aliens here, although the story takes place on another planet, but there are two self contained populations living totally apart from one another. Humans on the land, and Krakens in the sea.
The humans are totally oblivious to the krakens, who only remember the ...more
