Lor (Monstrous book 7) by Lily Mayne

Watch out Danny and Wyn! You may have some competition for favorite Monstrous couple. If I could give Lor 10 stars, I would. An amazing addition to the Monstrous series by Lily Mayne.

From the blurb:

My role as Moric—ruler of a small and prosperous fiefdom in a quiet corner of the world—has always been painfully dull and stifling.

Until a beautiful, otherworldly creature with pink skin and a mane of golden hair falls through a strange void that has appeared in my guestroom.

And I am instantly captivated by him.

I have never seen anything like him. I have no idea where he came from, and what else is through that unsettling void—another world filled with soft-skinned, defenceless creatures like him? No tails, no horns, no claws, no sharp teeth. Tiny clothing, rounded ears, bright blue eyes. He is fascinating. And I want to keep him.

But I have no idea how my citizens and councillors will react to his presence—to the knowledge that a whole other world exists, and there is a portal to it in my guestroom. As much as I try to keep him my secret, the truth starts to slip out.

And those in my fiefdom who cling desperately onto power do their best to tear us apart. To take him from me.

I won’t let them.

Lor is Book Seven of the Monstrous series, a post-apocalyptic m/m fantasy series that features monsters and human men falling in love. It is best to read the series in order.

Warning: This m/m love story contains explicit sexual content and is not suitable for young readers. It also contains non-human genitalia, mentions of a past familial death, grief, depression, attempted murder, depictions of death and violence.

Jacqueleen the Reading Queen's Review:

This...this was the sweetest, fluffiest couple I've ever read. I mean, they were just besotted with one another. Lor was fiercely devoted to his human, even when most would have given up. And the shy stuttering? How adorable can you get? Being mostly in Lor's POV was such a treat.

Then there's Lyri, who we all know is our badass blue monster from previous books. He felt almost like a 3rd MC. I loved getting to know him and his feisty personality.

This book made me cry. Lily Mayne broke my damn heart after pumping it full of sugary sweet romance. I knew she was buttering us up for something big. Yet the ending of Lor made up for it in spades. I couldn't stop picturing all these monsters rockin the business in the front, party in the back. I ended the last pages of Lor with a huge smile on my face and haven't been able to stop thinking of it since I finished.

Rating: 5 Stars
