It’s been more than twelve years since the alien invasion wiped out much of the human population and forced those who were left into Refugee Communes. As far as Benji Tucker is concerned, a life devoted to bare survival is boring as hell. But when a stupid prank threatens to bring disaster down on the entire commune, the Galactic Enforcers show up and announce Benji is now eligible for adoption—by the invaders!
He wakes in a plain white cell to find three very different monsters determined to make him their pet.
Warning: Adult Readers Only. Contains plenty of hot, non-consensual tentacle action, including but not limited to tentacle spanking, tentacle gagging, and tentacle-sex. Quite separately, it also contains an adorable pink-rainbow-sparkle tentacle monster. Those who dislike adorable pink rainbow sparkles or hot tentacle action should definitely not read this book.
Tentacles. Kitty. Adventure. This is the tag line for the wonderful web-comic Tentacle Kitty. However it could just as easily apply to Pet to the Tentacle Monsters! by Lilia Ford.
There are tentacles (so very many tentacles), kitties (at least a tentacle beast called Kitty) and an adventure that takes you to a place where you have absolutely no idea what the hell you just read (but you love it anyway!).
Pet to the Tentacle Monsters! is my first foray into the tentacle goodness, and I loved every bonkers moment of its cephalopod sexytimes.
Here’s what I thought of Pet to the Tentacle Monsters!:
OK, I’m giving you fair warning! If you have issues with non-human action, dubious or no consent, or more than two cheeky monkeys bouncing on the bed, Pet to the Tentacle Monsters! is definitely not going to be the book for you. I have got to say I am not much of a fan of the whole dub-con/non-con thing as a rule, but I gave this a go and, well, there were tentacles…..
I think what was actually really well done were the sci-fi aspects of the story – the exploration of life post-some kind of beastly takeover was pretty well written and very entertaining. Then Benji decides he’s going to be a naughty boy, and he gets adopted out to his new tentacle overlords. This is where sh!t starts to go wonderfully and bizarrely bonkers.
First Benji befriends the sweet and otherworldly Kitty, and then gets “introduced” to his new life by the mysterious Black and Silver. Places get filled that aren’t generally filled, and by things that don’t often fill those places. Black and Silver are both referred to in the masculine sense, so it would be fair to place this in the M/M realm. There is a fair amount of “what in the name of all that is holy is going on”, but hey, I don’t read the tentacle goodness for a deep exploration of the human condition – too many tentacles for that!
A quick read, Pet to the Tentacle Monsters! will surprise you, entertain you and provide a perfect introduction into the world of tentacle wrongness.
