My Rating: Four Delightfully Entertaining Stars****
This was my first time reading the work of Starla Night but I can truthfully say, it won't be my last! I saw this featured as a recommendation in a newsletter from one of my favorite authors and was immediately drawn to the cover so I decided to check it out. I read the blurb along with the free sample on Amazon and it really piqued my interest. I made my purchase and dove in... and what a delightful surprise! I truly enjoyed it! Seduced by the Sea Lord is a unique and exciting new twist on shifters and paranormal romance featuring hot, swoon-worthy mer-shifter males who are desperately in need of human females to mate and continue their lineage. And when they find the human female whose light shines for them, she will become their queen. You know, like the old expression goes, a man is king of his castle(home)... Well, in mer warrior society, every male's underwater home is his castle and his mate becomes his queen. I love it! I always wanted to be a queen and what better way than to become the mate of a sexy, panty-melting hot merman with a hot body covered in special tattoo markings that will make any woman drool! OMG! They were somewhat similar to cavemen, never having been exposed to modern human society and they were just the cat's meow! The story was romantic, unique, imaginative, fast-paced, easy to follow and well crafted. The narrative was beautifully written in the third person with easily identifiable his and her perspectives from the two protagonists, handsome warlord mer warrior Torum and beautiful divorced treasure seeker and diver Lucy Shaw. I was immediately smitten with both Torum and Lucy. Coming from two very different worlds, their initial meeting and subsequent interaction was nothing short of hilarious but it was also mesmerizing as well as heartbreaking. Although I truly loved the unique premise and overall storyarc for this sexy romp, it's the well-developed cast of fascinating characters who truly stole my heart. But I also loved the dialogue! It was smart, snappy, well-executed, and absolutely hilarious. I always enjoy great dialogue and in this story, I found myself completely captivated, laughing nonstop throughout the entire book. Torum found himself having to adapt to the unfamiliar and very puzzling ways of the human world, trying to understand human society, the customs as well as language, and especially the expressions and idioms used in conversation. But Lucy also found herself struggling to understand Torum and the ways of his underwater world. It was beyond entertaining. But it wasn't all fun and giggles, there's also a mother-load of conflict and heartache liberally laced with action and adventure. This book has it all! If you're in the market for a unique and very imaginative story with engaging characters and beautifully detailed world building and filled to the brim with pulse-pounding danger, heartbreaking drama, spine-tingling action, exhilarating adventure, agonizing angst, dreamy romance and steamy passion, then this book is for you! No spoilers from me but I will say this... Sexy mer warlord warrior from a predominantly male underwater world desperately yearning for his very own queen to give him a small fry (baby...lol...)-check! Beautiful, divorced, very broke and unemployed underwater diver who lost absolutely everything including her home, money, self-confidence along with any hope of ever having a child because of her selfish, unfaithful ex-husband and is once again searching for sea opals-check! Danger, drama, angst, lies, deceit, betrayal and enemies above and below the surface of the ocean-check! Dangerous sea creature guardians (named Mr Huggles and Lassie...lol...)-check! Sweet romance, undeniable passion, steamy sex and a few miracles to boot-You betcha! That and a whole lot more!
Did I like this book? No, I LOVED it! So, if I loved it so much, then why only 4 stars? First, there were a few minor hiccups but nothing that distracted me from the story. But my main criticism is the ending. There's an epilogue to the story that was not included in the book. In order to receive it, you have to sign up for Night's newsletter. I had already planned to subscribe but I don't like being forced to jump through hoops to get something which should have been included as part of the book. An author should feel confident in her work, allowing it to draw in new fans without having to dangle an epilogue as an incentive or enticement. I already paid for the book and took the time to download it. I should not have to spend more of my time downloading another file. Sorry, but that's just my opinion. And sadly, I see more and more writers resorting to this practice. Would I recommend it? You bet and I am but only for adult readers since it does contain some steamy, dreamy love scenes! Who knew underwater sex could be so hot? Apparently, Starla Night and she expressed it exceptionally well in this story. And fyi, either Night did her homework and research extremely well or she's a diver in real life because her information and terminology were dead-on accurate. Will I read this author again? Abso-freakin-lutely! I can hardly wait to get Sacrificed to the Sea Lord, Book Two of the series, in my hot little hands! Thankfully, I don't have long to wait; it releases June 6, 2017. As a matter of fact, I've already preordered my copy! I'm not sure if Starla Night is a new author or this is just a new pen name but regardless, I'm a fan. After I finished this book, I raced to her web page and signed up for her newsletter so I'll never miss a new release! And finally, was I entertained? Completely! Once I started reading, I could not stop! Before I even finished the first chapter, I was hopelessly and completely enthralled, riveted to my ereader, my heart fluttering in my chest while the time flew as quickly as the pages. I started the book late one evening and fell asleep with my Kindle still in my hands. I awakened the next morning still sitting up in bed (my favorite place to read), with my poor ereader dead as a door nail. I was so anxious to see what happened, I couldn't wait for my Kindle to recharge so I just plugged it in and kept reading! lol... Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read!
Add into the mix a giant female octopus with an attitude, a guardian and enemies and read what happens. I voluntarily reviewed this advanced reader copy and this review is my own opinion.
The review is not incentivized, and all opinions expressed are my own.
My biggest complaint is to get the epiologue, you have to sign up for the newsletter. And this is not a serious complaint, since the story did end before that.
