ê Captive Prince ✓ Download by ê C.S. Pacat TRIGGER WARNING rape, physical abuse, pedophilia I am so excited to continue with the next book, the way things ended I can tell that things are going to pick up and get REALLY intense For Romance month at my blog, I decided to take the opportunity to read something I wouldn t normally pick this highly praised M M Fantasy Romance.
The first thing you should know this is a character driven story I think you will enjoy it as long as you don t go into it expecting a lot of grand world building The focus of this book indeed, the whole series, it would seem is on the relationship between two men, and their relationships with other royals, guards and slaves around them.
As romances go, it has everything I could ask for 1 A really slow burn that makes a nice change from all the instant gratification NA romances I ve read.
2 Characters that grow and develop with the plot.
3 Chemistry, both sexual and otherwise Plus, a nice bit of hatred I am firmly of the belief that this series will one day become a classic in the M M romance genre.
I don t read m m fiction It s not because I m homophobic in any way julio would beat my ass down if I were , it s just that it s not a genre to which I gravitate For example, I don t read new adult I don t read chick lit I don t read m m It s simple as that I prefer the romance in my books to be something that I can relate to, and I feel that for me, a romance would be realistic if it s m f A book has to be completely amazing to change my mind about an m m romance, and this book, while not selling me on the genre, did a tremendous job of engaging my attention.
This is due to the fact that the character building is so amazing Let s make it clear, this book contains torture, sadism, rampant displays of sex generally things that I don t care for, because d Little flummoxed by this one It s an epic fantasy but focuses on sexual slavery than any sort of active plot I don t feel the sexual slavery rape culture was promoted as good or acceptable but just underlining the depraved society, buuuuuut Mine eyes are too young for this Plus if your master orders you orally raped and then later slave master start having a thinglet us just say no.
DNF 30% slow claps My first DNF of the year and boy, is it a cracker.
I promised myself I wouldn t write any rage ranting reviews about books because, although they might be enjoyable to write and read, ultimately, they left me feeling less than satisfied.
But I will make an exception For this book, I am making an exception, because I am sick of seeing this shit in literature and people praising it Captive Prince is marketed as slave erotica I should ve known, way before reading it, that it wouldn t be my cup of tea, but curiosity made me buy it, and I regret it immensely It s a book about a prince who is sold by his half brother to an enemy kingdom, and forced into becoming a slave to the Crown Prince.
That s not what sickened me What sickened me is the blatant disregard of men Men, funni The two main reactions to this book are OMG BEST BOOK IN THE WORLD or this was gross and despicable and i cannot believe how people enjoy it I m somewhere in between there.
I knew going into it that there would be a lot of rape torture scenes, but even so, I was surprised I think if you read this, you need to know several things in advance just to make sure that you don t automatically hate it 1 it s graphic book centered around sex slavery 2 major trigger warning for rape, abuse, and pedophilia 3 literally every single character in this book is gay or non straight and 4 there are zero female characters All of these things combined made the first half of the book almost unbearable, but there was one nugget of light that got me through it, and is continuing to push me to want to read the sequel there is something about the characters, their depth and complexities, that makes me wan I m aware that Captive Prince is a highly controversial book and I know that many people have a lot of mixed feelings about it As it seems you either hate it or you love it There is no in between I think most of that is due to the fact that it deals with subjects we feel very uncomfortable with Our modern minds have a tendency to shy away from those kinds of things, but just because a book makes you feel disgusted and angry, this still doesn t automatically mean that it s a bad book Sure, C.
S Pacat confronts us with a lot of heavy topics And I m not going to sugar coat them Just to make that perfectly clear There is rape, slavery, sexual abuse, torture, violence and even the mention of paedophilia Just to name a few of them and there are scenes
