Orlin didn’t know when he put himself up for sale that he would be responsible for changing a kingdom.
Broke and homeless, Orlin puts himself up for sale as a pet. Approached by his new Master, Orlin decides maybe being owned by a gorgeous king wouldn’t be fate worse than death. He doesn’t expect to become the one person who changes the views of an entire kingdom…or to be more than a lover for the man who buys him. At first sight of the sexy oiled sub, Aester Fall knows he’s not leaving until Orlin belongs to him. He might be hanging on to his kingdom by his fingernails but he knows some things are worth the fight. When he returns home with Orlin, he learns his new pet might not be as pet-like as he first appeared. Neither man expects to change the fate of a world much less two of them.
I had higher expectations for the story. I wanted a little bit more explanation and development of the world Orlin and Aester are from. I really liked Orlin and his need to make things better for those around him. Aester was wonderful in how he cared for Orlin. The best line in the whole book was “Please… Pretty please, Aester, with naked men on top.” I was cracking up so hard there! There were a few plot lines that didn’t really get resolved by the end of the story but they also weren’t overly developed either. This made it hard to tell if they were important. I so want to read more about these two and how they handle ruling two planets together. You could feel their emotions and how deeply they felt for each other. I liked Aester’s brothers. I want to see them get their own happy ending. But the character I enjoyed the most was Styr. You could tell he took his job of guard seriously and cared for Orlin’s well being. I really want him to get a happy ending.
Three and a half
Amber Kell has made a career out of daydreaming. It has been a lifelong habit she practices diligently as shown by her complete lack of focus on anything not related to her fantasy world building.
When she told her husband what she wanted to do with her life he told her to go have fun.
During those seconds she isn’t writing she remembers she has children who humor her with games of ‘what if’ and let her drag them to foreign lands to gather inspiration. Her youngest confided in her that he wants to write because he longs for a website and an author name—two things apparently necessary to be a proper writer.
Despite her husband’s insistence she doesn’t drink enough to be a true literary genius she continues to spin stories of people falling happily in love and staying that way.
She is thwarted during the day by a traffic jam of cats on the stairway and a puppy who insists on walks, but she bravely perseveres.
