Pieces of Me by Jacey Davis

Kennedy and Rafe couldn't be more perfectly matched as they learn to love each other despite what they go through. With just the right amount of kink and character development, Pieces of Me is the next amazing read in the Monster Match series.

From the blurb: 

What happens when a jaded chimera meets a skeptical and stressed human? True love, of course.

Why did I decide to live in the human realm again? I asked myself that question nearly every day lately. Sure, many monsters are thriving here, and I don’t think I could go back to never having coffee or cheese danishes again, but…humans can be so infuriating sometimes and I’m over it. I'd much rather be back at my cabin in the monster realm than trying fit in here.  

But my best friend is concerned I spend too much time alone and takes matters into his own hands when he signs me up for the Monster Match dating app that pairs humans and monsters together.

I plan to just delete the app, but then I match up with Kennedy. He’s a young college student, but he’s so different from any human I've ever met. His prickly shell hides a soft interior I want to crack open and explore. He has desires he's hidden for a long time, and I want to be the one who opens that world for him. He just needs to feel like he belongs somewhere. Which is a feeling I understand.

The more I get to know him, the more I’m sure that he belongs with me.

Pieces of Me is a steamy MM monster romance featuring a jaded chimera who is so over humans and their opinions and a human who is just desperate to finally get to be himself. It’s part of the Monster Match series and contains its own Happily Ever After. Each book is a standalone, but why don’t you have fun with all our monstrous beasties?

Expect a grumpy/grumpy pairing, size difference, a secret lingerie fantasy, and tail play.

Warning for controlling behavior, emotional and verbal abuse from a parent.
There is explicit content not meant for those under 18. Expect consensual-non consent, primal play, tail play, and lingerie.

Molly Otto's Review:

What an amazing addition to the Monster Match series! And may a certain general rot in jail and be accidentally offed. Kennedy is just such a beautiful soul who deserves all the best, and Rafe is just the right lover for him to have to make all his hopes and dreams seem possible. The character development was so well done that you felt the pain and why his circumstances made him the man he is. Rafe is just that right force he needs to get the courage to step out on his own and be his true self. I am happy to see past characters from the universe brought in to encourage these to and show them yes they may have issues, but if worked out together, they will succeed and flourish.
