Sweetly erotic, tentacle sex.SOLD Seriously, between the tentacles and the suckers on this guy yeah, I d be all in So, in this one you ve joined the away team Grab your red shirt Some nice world building on the aquatic planet of Varuna Good conflict Overall, diverting with slithery probing, intrigue, double crossing and we finally see how far one man will go in the name of science. So I got curious Decided to read some tentacle erotica Fans of erotica gotta push their limits sometimes So this ended up having a lotof a story than I had expected But I should have since it was part of the Love s Landscapes event and they are usually pretty good But I was a bit disappointed that the sex was notinventive Why else have all those arms if not for inventive sex I m gonna have to look for something a little sexier next time Or kinkier Ortentacley. This was a book of extremes for me I loved a lot of it and was beyond irritated with a lot of it, too But the good outweighed the bad for me.GoodStrong females and people of color throughout book, including MC Interesting characters and world I could have spent a lottime in this world, both on ship and on planet.Good plot Not particularly original but it kept me engaged Excellent pacing except for the slow and long sex scenes But there were only a couple and they were moderately hot This was a book of extremes for me I loved a lot of it and was beyond irritated with a lot of it, too But the good outweighed the bad for me.GoodStrong females and people of color throughout book, including MC Interesting characters and world I could have spent a lottime in this world, both on ship and on planet.Good plot Not particularly original but it kept me engaged Excellent pacing except for the slow and long sex scenes But there were only a couple and they were moderately hot I couldn t put the book down and wasn t aware of the passage of time.Had planet have really long days about a month which is good Many SF stories only have planetary days slightly longer or shorter than ours I like the interspecies mating.I think Sora s reaction to the whole mating thing was really good and plausible.There were good and not so good characters on both sides It wasn t a case of evil humans and a sweet, peace loving species that gets overrun.Awesome epilogue mega spoiler view spoiler They go out into space together rather than stay on the planet, which usually happens Neither of them is physically changed, either They find a way to make it work hide spoiler The tentacle sex was actually pretty good and fit within the context of the story I didn t feel it was just added for titillation.BadSizes are off, like a spear almost as long as his body, but then something else three times as long as his body doesn t fit with that Are the tentacles not included There was a rare round gem that just barely fit in a big man s palm that was carved into a pendant that a small man wore always Either the stone was whittled down in which made no sense given that it was rare, or he had a grapefruit hanging from him all the time along with six stones surrounding it.Switched POV twice in one scene at least Sora learned view spoiler to speak their language too fast and easily and knew farwords than he could possibly have heard such as the word love hide spoiler.Near the end there was a chapter wear the big guy kept thinking of the other guy as his little mate That just took it to those trashy shifter series level.InstaloveDescribed the beautiful colors of a planet when the sun was behind it It would be black, a partial solar eclipse Talked about how much time they had until night falls on the planet below Um, the whole planet And why did they have to land on that part of the planet when they were interested in a substance on the whole planet The planet was 109 degrees at a minimum with 80 90 percent humidity which would literally kill me , but the MC never complains about the heat, even when he s naked and not in his climate controlled clothing It s almost entirely a water planet and still that heat so how hot is the water Scalding But twice on the spaceship and or space station he is too warm The water people have tridents Really.BothDescribed the massive pain he must have felt but got over it too quickly and what he had to accommodate was ridiculous.The couple were only together for maybe a third of the book and didn t really think of each other a whole lot during the separation But it was okay with me because they got together close to the beginning, and I knew where it was going Sometimes small important details were added that many books wouldn t such as mild spoiler view spoiler they didn t immediately open strange canisters the moment they saw them but instead opened them in a safe place thought of little details like how they used something embarrassing to get a bad guy not to talk about what they did to him hide spoiler But then they d do something totally ridiculous like major spoiler view spoiler want to escape a possible deadly virus that could kill whole worlds by evacuating the ship which would theoretically kill everyone on the planet if even one microbe got out Then they were willing to kill a whole bunch of people who might have been exposed to the deadly stuff begging the question why they hadn t moved it as soon as they discovered it but then it turned out they could screen for toxins without apparent risk to the screener hide spoiler There sThat whole section was a mess.I d definitely readfrom this author.5 stars for story and writing, minus one for all the inconsistencies and messed up stuff Creative, with good character diversity, and, importantly, nice tentsex Thank you, Augusta Li. I really liked the world building in this short story The descriptive passages of Varuna, a water planet at the center of this sci fi plot, are lovely and worth the read I felt like I got to know Sora, too He s the brilliant, methodical scientist, and a loner in his space lab facility, who could use a little action in his life On a scientific mission to explore the beautiful blue Varuna, Sora feels a very strong pull to the place Ch Maram muk is also beautiful a man cephalopod hybrid, a I really liked the world building in this short story The descriptive passages of Varuna, a water planet

water creature who falls for Sora He is a leader and fierce warrior in his clan Yet, when he meets Sora, Ch Maram muk shows great curiosity for his culture and a growing tenderness for the man When Sora uncovers a nefarious plot by some of his people to take over Varuna in order to basically strip mine an important natural resource there, he realizes the great harm that will come not only to the planet, but to Ch Maram muk and his people Sora will do whatever he can to protect this beautiful planet and his lover While he at times seems feckless in his actions, Sora s experience on planet Varuna can almost be taken as a cautionary tale for environmental protection on our own.There are some nice action sequences and, of course, some very hot tentacle loving All good fun And I love the title, evocative and fitting to the story.For this and other great reviews, author interviews, and general fabulousness, visit Love Bytes Offered for FREE from the M M Romance Group s Love s

sexy, although I didn t entirely appreciate the way Sora treated him view spoiler there wasn t enough justification or explanation, then he just shows up and expects all is well Rude, much hide spoiler On the one hand, I wished the plot was a littlerelationship based than worlds clashing based That being said, it s a pet peeve of mine when characters disappear during dire situations to go screw, effectively abandoning their friends in an uncertain situation.While I m at it, I might as well let my hippie show it was really starting to annoy me how everyone talked like the sea people owned absolutely everything on the planet Sora even went so far as to say, everything on this world belongs to you I kinda wanted to bust out some Disney s Pocahontas out at em,You can own the Earth and still, all you ll own is Earth until, you can paint with all the colors of the windOr, the colors of the tides, I guess whatever, you get the point.And lastly, got a bit cheesy at times But that may have been me, I couldn t totally get into the prose cuz I kept getting distracted by the TV my hubby had on.P.S I loved all the strong women, and that they fought and sometimes died right along with the men, and no one batted an eye And one guy called out for sexist behavior of calling a mixed gender group ladies and for saying don t be a pussy YAY for galactic feminism But, they never acknowledged any sort of a time constraint of deep space travel Since they just found Verona I would expect it s far, but they seemed to come and go as they pleased without worry of traveling the distance Even one mention of a deep space jump or worm hole or whatever sci fy ish term would have alleviated this problem Ch Marsam muk is a race that has tentacles They live on a planet that is

longs period of time as they both work on trying to find a balance between their races There are those who don t approve of the sky people and there are some sky people who want to annihilate all life on the planet so they can come in and take whatever they want.Even if they get a balance between them, they come from two different worlds land and water They will have to fight and work together for them to stay together.This was an overall great story The world s were pretty well detailed and it had a good plot to it I was happy with the ending and would love to seeof our couple So this book was a bet And I lost Except I won because I wasn t the one going through the tentacles yeah list to find no non con tentacles books Mwahahaha Evil laugh aside, that was a nice novella, there was an interesting plot, the MCs were adorable and of course tentacles sex Full of details tentacles sex Now I know things And I kind of like tentacles books I may need another one to be sure. {Free} õ
