Monster on the Mountain by Aurora Russell
Goodreads Rating: 5 stars
This is the first Aurora Russell story I have read, and I can guarantee it will not be my last. I want to point out, this book has a LOT of sex. A LOT. So, if extremely sexy books are not your thing, this book is not for you. The scenes are VERY explicit. So if your delicate sensibilities are too sensitive, this will shock you and make you blush.
What I liked about this book is that for paranormal erotica, it is original. The Monster is a hybrid shifter of bear and Siberian tiger. By being a double blooded hybrid shifter, his senses are double that of a normal shifter: he hears more, he smells more, he feels more. There are those who believe these double blooded shifters should be killed at birth and others who are more open to the hybrids. What is similar about this love story and other paranormal love stories, the connection is instant. Like other sifters, the monster, Kristoff, knows his mate the moment he meets her.
This story is about a monster that saved the girl. Bad guys who try to kill the monster. Bad guys steal the girl. Monster gets mad (and you dont like him when he’s mad 😉 ). Monster saves girl. Monster leaves girl because his life will cause her danger forever. Girl gets mad. Girl goes to monster. Monster realizes he is an idiot. Monster and girl live forever happy. The end. After almost every serious scene, there is a sexy scene. As generic as the above paragraph sounds, that combination can make for a great story if the monster is well developed, the threat is significant, and the girl is worth it. Aurora Russell takes this story line and provides all the correct elements to make it a fantastic love story.
Monster on the Mountain is a quick read, I read it in one day. It has action, adventure, paranormal, love, sex. Everything to make a story great. There are a couple loose ends though, and I would like them cleared up 🙂 Though I am not in a position to make demands. I am curious if there will be another book, if not with Kristoff and Adelaide, but maybe the other characters in the story, and Kristoff and Adelaide can make an appearance to answer some of my burning questions….liiiike….is SHE PREGNANT?!?!?!?
