I don't usually leave reviews because I just can't find the time, and even more rarely bad reviews, but this book is kinda terrible. I thought it would be goofy silly fun (I mean, look at the title and cover!) but shame on me for not reading content warnings in advance, but on this site the issues I had here wouldn't be covered by the tags. 

It seems like it tries to have some serious plot elements and character backstory but the characters are so stilted and their conversations so awkward. The FMC does not act like I'd expect someone with her history or personality to act most of the time. I almost DNFd but it was so short I realized I was nearly at the end and finished only to roll my eyes at the wrap up. 

Spice wise, it's not nearly as fun and interesting as I was hoping. A lot of opportunities to do something interesting were left on the table. Yeah, he can detach the thing, but then he has zero sensation in it? ... alright? Also the aspects of cthulu biology focused on heavily in the series were serious mood killers.

I felt so bored, I read this because it was Cuthulu... and this was just boring to me.

When Wendi Gogh says "meet cute" BELIEVE HER!! This book is honestly adorable from start to finish. She also adds in just the right amount of hilarity, real-life drama, and 4 out of 5 spice to create an awesome little (and not so little teehee) monster romance with a cute Happily Ever After. 

The character development was pretty intense for a book less than 300 pages as well as very relatable and realistic; at least, as realistic as cthulu, gorgons, and cyclops can be. I will say that you'll want to check a couple of the triggers, if you have any, as it does delve into a couple rough life bits. This story is also LGBTQ+ friendly with the FMCs best friend being bi, and the MMCs best friends are a married lesbian couple. 

Overall, I absolutely recommend this book for fans of monster romances or even romances in general!

Tropes and Triggers (that I remember): 
Touch her and d!e
Tentacles
Pregnancy
Mating Heat
Unintentional Non-Con
He Falls First
Sexual Assault (relived memory)
Pegging (light)
Bratty FMC
