[ Read Online The Melier (Women of Dor Nye, #1) ☆ criticism PDF ] by Poppy Rhys ¾ Pros Good action, interesting world building, divergent species and cross species, evolving romance and good plot.
Cons high adventure morphs into overdone erotica, slightly immature H h and a little on the ewww side for the sex.
Poppy Rhys spins a good story Her action parts are strong and creative, and I enjoyed the secondary characters and the familial bonds within Lucia s world There is a heart warming component to this book that is not often present in sci fi romance, especially those of the cross species variety I would have been satisfied with a continuation of the high adventure side of the story within a fully realized alien culture, but pulling back on the erotica Once Lucia gets home, the brave bounty hunter disappears for quite a while while she explores the bed sheets with her blue boy toy The e SPOILERISH I loved the beginning of this book where Lucia escapes these baddies and saves Soren, who had been a slave Their relationship was so sweet and kind with an attraction they didn t know what to do with And then their first sex scene turned into a big hot mess and I could not think about anything being sexy about that And the messes kept cumming rim shot please Then this book that started out about a sweet romance turned into an erotic book with the cherry on top of this messy pie being she ended up smelling like really stinky fish which evidently is a turn on where the blue men are from And I mean a literal turn on with the gushing gallons of cum that people need to step over Grandma So what did Meh I was not into this Dnf at 60% Aaannddd the book slump continues.
5 Stars This story started out a helluva a lot stronger than it finished I think it s mainly because the author and I just had different visions See, me I wanted an alien erotica featuring a non humanoid alien Period Not necessarily a story with depth and meaning And this book had that.
sometimes It also had a lot of disgusting body fluids And when I say a lot, I mean a LOT But I m not even going to go thereI digress So, Soren was definitely a non human alien Yas We re off to a good start Lucia is escaping from some super bad aliens and steals a ship loaded down with lots of goodies and guess who just so happens to be on board Soren, or Slave 892 as he is known before Lucia so graciously gifts him the name of Soren and his ultimately his freedom So a human and I went into this knowing it was a twofer a duet and that I wasn t going to read the second book cause menage just wasn t my thing.
But I ll be honest, I really liked Lucia, Soren, Lucia s family and the writing So I was definitely getting a little swayed into chancing the next book.
And it was all going so well till 77% in Soren gets his memories back and his brothers show up and I skedaddled myself out In my mind, I had already dnf ed this but I had so little left and I thought I could push through I couldn t Sorry This really was a case of it s not you it s me I can t stomach anything other than monogamy and when Soren s brothers want in I figure it s the best time for me to give them space and get out.
I enjoyed reading it but some of the things reminded me of Venomous.
I really enjoyed this book The beginning was definitely easy to get into, and throughout the book, there are many humorous, laugh out loud moments The alien is most definitely non human, which I loved h often refers to H as beasty view spoiler Toward the middle is when things get a little serious and there s kidnapping The torture would be hard to read if defilement of women in books isn t your cup of tea, but I thought it was a good description hide spoiler I m trying to catch my breath right now This was a new to me author and so far, I m impressed Lucia is a bad ass mercenary and she unwittingly ends up stealing a ship carrying an alien slave She names him Soren as he has no memory of his pre capture life She decides to bring him home with her to Dor Nyeand their attraction becomes hotter by the minute.
Lu s view spoiler pregnancy is a surprise and this pushes her to get Soren his memory back This happens just in time since she gets abducted by Quinton Ta Rel Eel and some really bad stuff happens Soren who now remembers his real name Val Ja is beside himself with worry so he decides to call in his brothers to help him search We find out that Val Ja is actually a prince and has been missing for 8 years They manage to rescue Lucia and they go back to Dor Nye so she can have
