Series: Alpha Orcs and Their Carnal Desires
When innocent Ruby offers her life to save her parents, she never expects the hulking orc to want her as breeding stock. When they arrive at his cave, it’s time for her body to be used to satisfy her captor’s animalist urges. Weeks turn into months until Ruby realizes she is pregnant with the alpha orc’s child.
Will Ruby be able to withstand Trag’s brutal lust for her body or will his need to breed break her?
I picked this one up just to continue the run of cheap and easy-to-read Orc Smut books. I wish I hadn’t. This one was the turning point in stopping this enjoyable romp!
Ruby is out in the forest collecting things for her family and upon her return, she sees that her home has been attacked by an Orc. Rather than go running for the hills she rushes home and comes up with the great idea of trading herself in return for the safety of her family. Targ, the Orc, agrees and carries her off to the local cave where they live. Stockholm Syndrome takes over and… voila.
There’s pretty much nothing to this story other than fleshing out what I’ve written above. At only 32 pages, it’s a very quick read and a time-filler for the bored! I was somewhat stunned by Ruby whose fond memories of her home that she wants to save from the vicious Orc include; her young sibling being born and her first period.
So, Targ gets her to his cave and he can’t resist her. With the words “I can’t wait anymore,” they’re at it like rabbits and she doesn’t want to go back to the wonderous memories of her real home – unsurprising, considering what they consist of – and she lives in the Orcs cave with him and is used as breeding stock.
On the plus side, this book doesn’t have as much in the ways of mistakes grammatically compared to the first. It’s easier to read in a lot of respects, but it’s not overly imaginative in terms of characters or plot. I was disappointed with this particular book. It didn’t seem to add anything new to the Orc Smut genre and there seemed to be less world-building and character development than the previously written Orc Smut book by the same author. I was hoping for more, but got less.
Stockholm Syndrome plot. Uninspiring characters. Bleh.
