Minotaur: Blooded (The Bestial Tribe #1) by Naomi Lucas
Review: The summary of Minotaur Blooded had me intrigued, along with the sample I was able to read on my Kindle. But sadly, after a few chapters I knew I should have listened to other reviews I had seen. Although, I do think I would have always wondered and wanted to make my own opinions on this book.
Why I wanted to read this book was because I was in desperate need for a trashy romance to help with my book slump. Normally, I read short romance novel (e-book ones mostly) to help me to k=not think for a while and to help restart my brain. Sadly, this had too many things that did not work for me to get lost in it and not think. There were too many un-understandable topics within the book that pulled away from the story, and the Stockholm/ abuse aspect was just too weird and too much for me to even like this. Then there is a part in the beginning of the book about virgins and that they were witches (and of course the only virgins are women), this leading all young girls to seek out men to sleep with (basically the older men they don’t even like). And then there was a part at the end, where the two MC’s are about to have sex again and it makes no sense. They were wearing masks and doing some type of ritual, something that never happened before in the book and was never explained.

Summary: AAldora lived in a bordertown on the edge of the maze. A labyrinth that spanned an eternity filled with creatures that howled through the night. She was a daughter to farmers that worked the fields and endured a quiet life as a peasant, away from the capital and its nihilistic celebrations; away from all that would look at her and discern her worth. Because to be chosen as a sacrifice was to be chosen to die. Until one night, while at the edge, she heard a husky voice in the darkness.
He prowled the overgrown passages at the farthest edges where the true, intelligent beasts roamed. They were all there for the same reasons: to kill each other and capture the humans that entered the labyrinth.
On one fated night a human girl called out to him. A girl with a voice that quickened his blood. But he wasn’t the only one to hear her call…
Minotaur is a dark fantasy romance with explicit violence and possible triggers. Mature readers only.
