Nothing here about forced breeding or even remotely (human) mpreg. No non/dub con either.
Breeding stations are planets where a common enemy of two races breeds monsters/dinosaurs to unleash on unsuspecting planets and destroy local population. MC hunts the super crazy GMO dinosaurs and engages - on a regular basis - in mind boggling sex with tall, handsome, uber possessive and extremely well equipped Onri-like (Claimings, Tails, and Other Alien Artifacts) alien mate. What's not to love? :D
The book is campy and fun and it has a giant alien with a very capable tail.
4.5 stars. A little bit of mush-and-feels talk in the middle was a half star off for me.
I really loved this book up until 60%, where I started to feel like the author is trying to inflict as much pain and suffering on the MCs as possible without introducing actual physical torture. Oh, wait, there was that bear! :( Anyway, I would have done just fine with all of that if it wasn't for the finale. Everything, and I mean - e-veh-ry-thing - bent and twisted and in the end righted itself, short of resurrecting dead people.
And so, while I enjoyed most of the book immensely and even got some perverted satisfaction out of the too-good-to-be-true ending, I can't give it more than 3.5 stars. Which way to go tho, which way to go?
Ahhh, hell, I did read it well into the night, so - 4 stars in the end.
I just deleted my review without publishing it. I was about to hit "save" button, when I realised that there is not a single positive word that I can write here about this whole ordeal. Instead, here is a simple list of issues I came cross:
- 24 year old manchild, and not the fun Jack Sparrow or Tom Hanks (referring to movie "Big") type;
- 24 year old manchild who by some mighty miracle survived as a pirate and a captain to be 24 years old;
- neglect. Because letting the poor boy run around in wet clothes, while dirty and stinky is neglect;
- commas. OMG, they are killing this story! Not there is much to kill, but they are the proverbial kick, delivered to someone who is already down :/
I really don't know how the two MCs survived; one as a pirate for as long as he did, the other one as a Hunter. Must be by some miracle/fairy godmother.
There were times when this book was a big deal and everyone and their cousin was reading it and loving it. It was such a hype! *sigh* What a disappointment in turned out to be! :(
PS I wish Samantha Cayto re-wrote it. After all, there is a potential here, it's the execution that's lacking :(
