Publisher's Summary

His treasure and his obsession...

Despite her longing for the sea, Macy has clung to the safety of land for half her life, devoting herself to her daily routine - until she agrees to go sailing with a childhood friend. Her fears come to fruition when a sudden storm capsizes their boat, rekindling her old terror. She awakens to a rescuer who is anything but human - and he refuses to let her go. Treated like a curiosity and a possession, she's desperate to go home. Yet Macy is undeniably drawn to this strange creature. Can she give up her old life, her family and friends, to embrace this adventure...and Jax?

Her savior and her captor...

Jax the Wanderer is a hunter, an explorer, and an oddity among his kind. While other kraken are content near their dens, Jax is driven by a deep need to journey far and wide, discovering the unknown corners of the sea. Macy challenges everything he's known; she is the most alluring creature he's ever seen on his travels. He must possess her, though he knows it can only end in disaster. How much is he willing to forsake for the female he desires?

Contains mature themes.

***Oh my Kraken***

I loved this book so much it's understated in so many ways. It got you right in your heart. It's a story about prejudiced, anger and stereotype. It's happening in real life the creatures might be a sci-fi but the prejudice is real. this book is a slow burn romance with plenty of boiling chemistry (grins) The narrator's are both excellent thank you. I'm a huge fan of Hollie Jackson and Ryan Turner has the most gentlest voice ever.

The content was good...

4 stars for content. I enjoyed the story and the characters. Audible: I added the whispersync audible narration to this kindle book. I do NOT recommend listening to the audio book. It is better to just read this one. There are two narrators. The female was fine but the male wasn't my favorite. He didn't enunciate well or speak clearly and the way he spoke did not match Jax's character.

different in a good way

I really enjoy the story it was different for me I normally listen to werewolves and vampires. how were this was about a sea monster or as they will call themselves The Krakens and the humans on. it wasn't overly weird during the sex scenes. definitely worth your credit not too much drama but enough to put you at the edge. what I did not like about the book what's the author kept the characters in 3rd person. I felt like I didn't know what time or Century this was happening in. and never gets into it until almost in the middle of the book but even then you still don't know what year. there were still a little bit of holes missing in this book but I would definitely listen to the second one. maybe it would answer more of my questions.

Good read! Worth a Cerdit!

Take a chance on this book! I was very surprised on how well I enjoyed it. Since this book had no reviews yet I was unsure how this adventure would go, but wow, I love the idea of a squid man falling for a human female, it flowed well and was not overly weird! Plot was decent and there was char growth, and thank goodness the female was not whinny! woohoo! <3 The narrators did well, nothing odd or gasps of breaths between sentences. They did good separating other character voices! Good start to a new series!

Why did so many people like this book?

***Spoilers in Review*** I started a book club and this was our second book. I saw it was highly rated on Good Reads. For context I have really enjoyed the Anita Blake books so while I don't spend a lot of time in the world of erotica, I do like it and so thought this would be good. It is not. The story is super simple and honestly is so similar to Twilight with Kraken instead of Vampires I was really surprised. Also the male characters are cringe-worthy possessive of the female characters with the main characters meeting through a kidnapping. The sexy times were really boring. I skipped through them hoping the plot would do something interesting but it was a chore to get through it. It of course ends with a miracle pregnancy and birth. On a side note, whats the deal with monster pregnancies being only 5 months? Twilight did it, this book did it, just made me laugh how part of super natural pregnancy is getting through it at lightening speed because monster babies have super short gestation periods. Also for a sort of sci-fi book the colonists (humans) must be Puritans because the society was structured in a way that you get married ideally around 18 and only join with one person and that's it for life. I mean really? Macy was considered really out there for being 25 or 27 and single still. All of that being said, this book is loved by a lot of people. it has high marks here on audible and as I mentioned Good Reads, it just did not work for me as erotica, sci-fi, or fantasy. I will not be finishing the series.

Sweet love story

This was a little weird with no legs and all, but that's really the only difference from them being human. The men are super sweet and its a nice love story. There are some cute funny moments too.

This story is full and rewarding to listen to. The only thing I would like is a bit more epilogue.
