The Wicked Merman (Monstrous Tales #4) by Kelly Apple – Bout of Books 13 Review

WickedMermanWhen her friend drags her off to the lake for some much needed R&R, Ari thought she’d be getting away from supernaturals for a few days. Sunning and swimming sound divine and it might help her shake off the funk of being parted from her beloved Guardian.
But when a girl who loves monsters ends up at a lake housing a merman, she’s going to end up doing a lot more than swimming.
Ari can’t resist trying to find the answer to the age-old question: How do mermen have sex?
This wicked merman is more than happy to give her some hands-on experience.
Warning: This book contains a lake, a midnight swim, and an unexpected hard-on. Don’t let the fins fool you, this merman has all the right stuff to get Ari where she needs to go.

CreativeDeedsReadsDisclosure1So Ari does have a life outside of obsessing over monsters and school… kinda. Her best friend is trying to convince her of that anyway. Unfortunately, her best friend is also trying to mend fences between Ari and someone that betrayed her in high school. Her effort to get away from the drama threw Ari in the arms of her latest monster.

As usual, Ari’s curiosity gets the best of her and after setting some pretty definite rules and boundaries, she finds out everything she ever wanted to know about mermen… and more. Was it enough to make her forget her green lover? You’ll have to treat yourself to Wicked Merman to find out 😉

Monstrous Tales Vol. 1 by Kelly Apple

The first volume of Monstrous Tales includes 3 novellas and one short, short Interlude. I picked up the first 2 free before I was given the series in volumes by the author. Truth is, I would have eventually purchased them all anyway. They’re perfect hot, steamy, fun little reads. Here’s a little bit about each one in the first volume.

Wicked Woods (Monstrous Tales #1)

WickedWoodsAri’s always had a thing for monsters. Big ones, small ones, and all the ones in between. They turn her on like no human can. She’d be an ordinary girl if not for that one little quirk.
Since monsters aren’t real, she’s resigned herself to loving them in her imagination.
But, as Ari is about to find out, monsters are real and now one of them has her in their grasp. Will reality be better than fantasy? Or will she walk away and lose her one chance at fulfilling her wildest dreams?
Warning: This book contains a girl who isn’t afraid of monsters and a monster who wouldn’t mind a special lady friend. You’ll never look at those all-night monster marathons on TV the same way again.

You can check out the review I posted earlier here.

Wicked Games (Monstrous Tales #1.5)

Wicked Games is the Interlude story included in Volume 1. It’s a fun little segue between stories that gives a whole new meaning to ‘Game Night.’ 😉

Wicked Wolf (Monstrous Tales #2)

WickedWolfAfter several months with her monstrous lover, the unthinkable has happened—Ari’s Guardian is being called upon to mate with others of his kind. Not wanting to put her in danger, her Guardian sends her away, promising they will reunite once he’s fulfilled his duty.
Now Ari has a choice—she can pine for her monster as he lies with compatible females or she can seek out other supernaturals and see if what she feels for her Guardian is true.
Is it love or only lust? There’s a wicked wolf who’s willing to help her find the truth.
Warning: This book contains lovers (metaphorically) torn apart and a girl determined to experience the supernatural. Timid creatures need not apply.

Ari’s first escapade with a monster other than her green love is easier to find than she thought. Kelly Apple’s witty humor came shining through in The Wicked Wolf. I can’t even tell you the funniest part because that would reveal too much and some things are just better experienced first hand. *giggles* Michael was sweet, in a monstrous sort of way but was he enough to make Ari forget her Guardian?

Wicked Dragon (Monstrous Tales #3)

WickedDragonIt’s been five days since Ari and her green Guardian were forced apart. Ari’s determined to ride out the storm of sexual longing she feels whenever she thinks about him, but it’s hard.
When a dragon appears in her backyard, Ari is faced with a dilemma—send him on his way and continue pining or follow him into the woods to see what he can do for her. She’s already tried out a werewolf, is there anything a dragon could possibly offer to keep her mind off her missing beloved?
As it turns out, this wicked dragon might have a trick or two up his sleeve.
Warning: This book contains a dragon with an impressive package and a girl who likes getting gifts. No flight plans were filed (or interrupted) during their interlude.

It becomes fairly clear that word has gotten out about Ari’s affinity toward monsters when Max, the dragon, shows up in her back yard. He’s sweet and honest and most of all, lonely. He kind of pulled at my heartstrings by the end of The Wicked Dragon. I hope one day he finds his true mate. *shakes head* Yeah, only Kelly Apple could make me want to hug and console a dragon. On a side note: who knew anatomy lessons could be so… interesting? 😉

Oh my… yep, Kelly Apple went there and this one was just as much fun as I expected. There is so much I could say, but honestly I’m speechless after reading Wicked Woods.

This was a fun, quick little read that was full of heat, fueled by a young girl with a vivid imagination that found the monster of her dreams. You’ve heard of magic fingers? Change that to tentacles and multiply them by… well, I lost count and so did Ari. 😉

Wicked Woods was the first book in Kelly Apple’s Monstrous Tales series. I picked the first two up when they were free so The Wicked Wolf has been added to my TBR pile. Seems that while the monster is away, it’s time for the co-ed to play?
