I received this book as an ARC through Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
I suppose if I had been able to take this seriously I would have found this book one of the most offensive things I've ever read. Make no mistakes about it, this is non con. Wyatt may be resigned to his circumstances, might even get it worse back in the human lands, but he in no ways consents, or is even able to consent. This doesn't change. There is some silly non-sense with Alpha blood, mates, evil humans, and Wyatt's own good, but, in the end, Wyatt never really, with a clear head, consents.
Which is terrible, it really is, but I think why I was able to read it without losing my mind was just how over the top ridiculous is was. I just could take anything, or anyone seriously. Cole, the alpha. I know he was supposed to be big, and bad ass, but really? Part of me wondered if the author was trying to subvert the tropes of the genre by upholding them, but probably that is just me.
If you are looking for a deep meaningful book, one without gang rape, rape, and other sort of potentially triggering incidents look elsewhere. If you are, like me, looking for something mindless, dirty, and easy to read this is the book for you. The sex is a bit silly, yes, but it was just the sort of raunchy read I was looking for. I didn't have to pay attention, didn't have to worry about plot, or characters, or anything else. I could just sit back, and get lost in smut. Mmmmm....unapologetic smut. Perfect for a day when I was stuck home in bed, miserable with a cold. On a different day, in a different mood, maybe not hacking up a lung, I probably would have rated this book lower, but today is not that day.
