Kat and her monster!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌏🌍🌎🌍🌏
Character development: 😤😥😊🤩😘
The heroine: Katalina (a.k.a. Kat) – She spent her life as a caregiver to the dying. The last one was her own grandmother who seemed to die of the same thing her parents died of which was a parasite. She feels she must have the same parasite inside her and that she also will die before her time. With her grandmother dead, she wants to travel the galaxy and find some sort of cure for herself.
The Hero: Dommick – He is a Cyborg shifter (part tech, part human, part spider DNA). They call him a Monster or the Monster Hunter and he knows it. He thinks he is a beast and that no woman could ever have feelings for him.
The Story: While at the spaceport, Kat sees the Monster Hunter and hears how every time he is in port, he drops off different creatures, plants and flowers to be studied and as he is walking by her, he hears his bosses tell him that he needs to hire an assistant. She is determined to be his assistant as she thinks that the flora and fauna he collects might be the answer she is seeking.
This was a very odd one. Dommick had a lot of secrets and doesn’t want Kat to know just how much of a monster he actually is. When I found out he was a spider cyborg shifter, I thought I wouldn’t like this one, but I thought Dommick was cute. Especially how he was such a loner and how he sat around braiding ropes in his ship and tied them all over like his own web. He was rough and tough and had a tender heart.
I read the third book, Shark Bite first and liked it because it was different than the average alien romance. This was the same. I really liked the story and the characters. Kat was extremely open minded but had a thing about bugs and she was a bit of a hypochondriac. But everyone has their own foibles, so I enjoyed it.
Like Shark Bite this book was dual points of view, dual narration and narrated by Hollie Jackson and Alexander Cendese who both did a great job with these non traditional characters.
