Audiobook Review: I Married a Minotaur (Prime Mating Agency, #5). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I Married a Minotaur by Regine Abel

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tiny, sassy, but oh so fierce

​Rihanna is condemned to a twenty-year sentence on the most savage prison planet in the sector for a crime she didn’t commit. On the day of her transfer, she’s offered a deal to commute her sentence: an arranged marriage with a grumpy orc-minotaur who has muscles for days, devilish red eyes, and an insufferably smart mouth. Despite his species’ reputation for being violent brutes, Rihanna soon finds herself drawn to the gentle giant that lurks beneath his terrifying appearance.

Fearsome, savage, and yet so fluffy

When the agency informs Zatruk he’s been matched, the last thing he expects is for his mate to be such a tiny human. With his people rapidly entering blood rage, and the looming threat of war, he needs a queen to stand by his side as he strives to save his people, not a delicate flower. But he soon discovers that behind her fragile appearance, his little female hides a fierce and dauntless soul, with a sassy attitude that stirs him in unexpected ways.

With time running out, will Rihanna be the blessing he needs to achieve the peace his people desperately desire, or will they self-destruct?

The heroine: Rihanna – She was sentenced to twenty years in prison . She was a smuggler and bounty hunter, she was always on the wrong side of the law, but misdemeanors more than felonies, until her shady associate makes her the fall guy for arms dealing on the planet with the strictest anti-armament laws. She is sentence to serve in the most brutal penitentiary. However, she is offered a chance to commute her sentence if she agrees to become a mail order bride to a Orc-like minotaur like male.

The Hero: Zatruk – He is a Yuru who recently overthrew the previous chieftain of his people who was only interested in war and subjugating other sentient species on their planet. Zatruk is starting a new way of life for his people starting with getting married and trying to keep his people from going to war again.

The Story: Rihanna is a small human female so Zatruk doesn’t quite know what to do with her. Though he really likes how fierce and spunky she is. Rihanna plans only to spend the required year married to Zatruk, but she is attracted to the huge muscular male and exited to know all about the planet and the people.

Like the rest of the books in this series, the world building is by far the best of any alien romance that I have read to date. The details of the world, the technology and the issues the culture faces are so great. The Yurus have a physiology in which they go into a blood rage at times which is why they fight so often and go to war. In order for Zatruk to make changes so that they can be allies with other clans and their human and Zelconian neighbors, they need some way to assuage the blood rage.

Zatruk decides to create a gladiator arena in which foreign fighters throughout the galaxy can come an fight against each other and the Yurus. They also have the ability to created weapons with the ditanium which is locally sourced and the Yurus are able to shape and smith unlike other, smaller species throughout the galaxy will be a source of income for the Yurus. All of this is specifically detailed in the story and quite interesting to boot.

Of course the book is also steamy and the romance is great between the two main characters. I have really enjoyed every book in this series that I have read. It was told in dual points of view via solo narration and narrated by Daryl Mayfield, I didn’t mind the solo narration at all because Daryl has a deep voice which matched the Orc-Minotaur very well and he also does a softer female voice better than most male narrators. All in all, this was a great audiobook.
