A lake monster in heat, a lost human in the woods, and the lie that gets her stuffed…
Getting lost in the woods was not the adventure Amy had in mind when she jumped at the chance to search for the local lake monster. She just wanted to liven up her steady but boring life, not wonder if every shadow on the ground is a snake and worry that no one will ever find her.
Luckily, someone does find her.
Unexpectedly, that person isn't human.
Wildly, he seems to think that she's his date.
Adrian faces what could be his last heat. As his temperature rises and his biological clock ticks, his only hope is that the witch being sent by a famous matchmaker will be as compatible as he dreams.
Can he convince his date to not only provide relief during his heat but also carry his eggs?
Found by the Lake Monster takes place in the same world as Stalked by the Kraken and includes breeding, knotting, and oviposition.
Sweet lake monster summer read
Found by the Lake Monster is Lillian Lark's latest addition to her love bathhouse monster romance universe. A gentlemanly monster in the swamp mistakes a lost human woman for a date arranged for him by a supernatural matchmaking agency, and said human woman does not correct his assumption. Emotionally and sexually charged shenanigans follow.
The monster heroes of the love bathhouse universe are as sweet and satisfying as the most decadent of desserts, and resident lake monster Adrian is no different. The chemistry between him and Amy is something of instalove and lust, necessitated by a magical deadline looming over them. Nevertheless, I really liked how the characters navigated and engaged with what the time constraints and the circumstances of their coming together meant for them and the possibility of a relationship between them.
I found Amy hilariously relatable in some respects and overall a sensible heroine. However, there is a key moment of the story where I found her decision-making seriously questionable. Unfortunately, it is also a pivotal plot point and I understand how it makes sense for the narrative. While I find it hard to understand the rationale behind her action in that instance, I appreciate that not all main characters have to be relatable or likeable in every aspect of their personality or choice of actions.
I received an advance review copy of this book for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
Didn’t Know I Liked That LOL
This little novella sucked me right in! This story was intense, intriguing, and heartwarming. Be warned: this book does contain nonhuman plus human “situations” but I think you should give it a try, you may like it lol!
Super good novella! The perfect pick me up especially if you are traveling and need something to pass time and I love the epilogue
