      Cross-posted at Outlaw Reviews and at Shelf InflictedBetentacled Teo Houdin is proud proprietor of the Klockwerk Kraken, a unique bar located in a remote outer space way station, which makes it difficult for Teo to keep a regular supply of booze on hand. Though he comes from a large and loving family, Teo craved independence and wanted to see more of the galaxy, so he left the planet of Celos.Jiminez is a former slave adjusting to normal life and looking to buy a ship in order to ensure he remai [...]

      Holy guacamole! The cover of this book didn’t do this one any justice. I was going into reading this one expecting an ok story with weird kinky tentacle sex and boy .y boy was I wrong! This was a very VERY fantastic read and I love every single second reading it!!! 😍😍😍Teo is a Celosian who are evolutionary humans with four extra tentacles. Celosians aka Pods are known to be very family oriented and very few of them ever leave their home planet. But our Teo has an itchy feet and he [...]

      Well, this was a really enjoyable, feel-good read! I have to admit that I didn't know what to expect from this AT ALL. I've been having some issues this past week, stalling out on all the books I'm reading, getting distracted with anything that has a slow pace and feeling generally like I can't find anything engaging to read. So when I started this one, all I was really thinking of was that this might be a fun TENTACLE SEX read to get me out of my book funk! But it was so much more than that wit [...]

      "Stars in my teethDrunk in the music of the universeWild and tumblingExhaling out creation forever"This story it is full of romance and conflict between two guys who find love in the far reaches of the universe.Jimenez has endured slavery. He has finally saved enough to buy his own craft, and dreams of the solace of space to be alone and free. Jimenez is happy with his own company, and some poetry to read on his journey. Teo escaped a huge and adoring family to make his own way and find adventur [...]

      Tentacle lovers, this is a book for you! Ms. Ladnier is a new to me author who delights me with her tentacle m/m space opera romance. Teo Houdin is a Celosian far from home. He runs a bar near the end of the universe…called the Kraken. This makes perfect sense since Teo is a humanoid enhanced with multiple arms. His tentacles help him work faster and sex is definitely an experience not to be missed. Used to one-night stands, Teo is in a sexual lull and experiencing ennui. Then in walks in the [...]

      ★★★★☆ ~ 4 StarsA sweet, little angst take of former slave, Jimenez, recovering from years of abusive slavery and pod Teo (a genetically modified human). Teo wears his heart on his sleeves and tentacles and the first time he meets Jimenez, he helps him to fulfill his dream of becoming a cargo pilot and they have an ongoing meetup relationship that slowly becomes deeper until Jimenez is caught up in something out of his hands.Jimenez has many scars both inside and outside, can he trust T [...]

      Okay, yeah, tentacles. In space. But this book is surprisingly sweet and very well-written. The sci-fi bits were just enough to satisfy my inner geek without overwhelming the story. The tentacles were not squicky. And the characters were great. Not only did I like the many-appendaged Teo and strong, damaged Jimenez, but I was also fond of Teo's large and enthusiastic family. I also like that the story is out of the ordinary.The last quarter of the book felt a little rushed to me, but overall it [...]

      English Review Teo Houdin is a POD, a descendant genetically modified humans. He is the owner of a bar in a remote corner of the galaxy and his tentacles are a great help in this business.Jimenez is a former slave. He made implanted navigational ports through which he can fly a ship. When Jimenez comes take a drink at Teo’s bar, this one tries to initiate a conversation, which is not easy because Jimenez does not speak. Teo eventually prevents Jimenez of buying a vessel in poor condition and [...]

      I received a copy of this book via ' Don't Buy My Love program in exchange for an honest review.4.5 StarsTeo Houdin is a Celosian, a tentacled humanoid male. This means in addition to his two arms and two legs, he has four tentacles which erupt from his back. His is attractive, and also desirable for partners seeking a bit, well, strange, but he's outgrown all the casual sex and longs for a more permanent partner. He owns a bar, the Klockwerk Kracken, in a refueling station at the edge of the No [...]

      4 stars for a very solid "I really liked it" story. So much so, in fact, that I will definitely be picking this one up to re-read in the future.My favorite parts: Teo & Jimenez. They were fantastic characters and had great chemistry. Teo was the classic outgoing, confident, personable bartender. It was cool how he'd mix several drinks at a time using all of his appendages. I also really liked the parallel between his personality and extra limbs; he's tactile and touchy-feely, but is also alw [...]

      I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.The Klockwerk Kraken is a delight, which isn’t anything I ever thought I would say about a story in the “tentacle” genre! The main characters are Teo, a Celosian (looks like a human except with tentacles) who owns a bar on a remote space outpost and Jimenez a newly freed slave who is establishing himself as a space cargo pilot. Teo is an open-hearted man who is lonely despite having a large group of close friends. When he [...]

      So to be honest, from the title alone I'd anticipated a vaguely-Steampunk-themed tentacle porn story.That's nowhere near what I got, and I couldn't have been more delighted. It turned out to be a spectacularly well-developed sci-fi story with two characters that I just completely fell in love with.Teo is from a race of genetically-modified former-humans nicknamed "pods" because they were given prehensile tentacles. (Scenes with Teo using all six of his "appendages" to keep up with orders at his [...]

      Sci-fi really was not my forte, but this book was light enough in a sense there was not much techy mumbo jumbo terms. So it's quite easy for me to grasp the world building and the plot.The story revolved around Teo Houdin, a friendly pod alien with extra four tentacled-arms and Jimenez, a quiet, skittish, taciturn ex-slave of two-armed man. Teo owned and bar-tended Klockwerk Kraken, a bar at Switchpoint Waystation, the last post before the vast Nothing of space. Jimenez was a spacer about to buy [...]

    14. Carly on said:

      The Klockwerk Kracken has a character driven story-line and is what I like to call soft sci-fi, which means that and even if you aren't a fan of science fiction in general, you should consider giving it a try.With six arms and a personality that is slightly larger than life, Teo Houdin is outgoing, funny and an all-around likeable guy. Recently he's been noticing that the bar scene isn't as exciting as it used to be. He isn't looking for change per se, but he's been feeling a bit of restlessness [...]

    15. Kelly on said:

      Great world building. Lots of detail and believable settings. Teo is so sweet. Jimenez's past is explored with a compassionate show of restraint. Love scenes are smokin'.

      Note: I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.I've kind of been sitting on this review, simply because it's hard for me to explain how I feel about this book. I think in the end, it was mostly "meh." Not bad, but also not good.I like the premise: former slave and tentacled dude. This sounded right up my alley, because my alley includes kink and hurt comfort. But this book didn't really deliver on that. The relationship progresses strangely, with the two main characters not seeing [...]

      I very rarely read Sci-fi book but this one caught my eye, so what did I think?It's a very easy to read MM book but it does delve into a difficult subject, Slavery. Teo is a pod a gm human, he looks as any other human except for his extra tentacles! His a fab character light, fun and wears his heart on his sleeve, I couldn't help but like him. Teo runs a bar and that's were he meets Jimenez.Jimenez, calls in for a drink it appears his looking for a ship, lucky for him Teo can point him in the ri [...]

      A free copy of this was provided by the author in exchange for an honest reviewI really ended up loving this. I wasn't sure I would at first, it's a little slow to get going. I was expecting it to be steampunk-ian for some reason. I couldn't tell you why. But it's a pretty straight forward sci-fi story. Teo is a bartender/bar owner with tentacles, which really comes in handy. Pun intended. Jimenez is a scarred pilot who just wants to be left alone. Jimenez was so tortured by his past, it was hea [...]

      Better than expected! Wow, I really enjoyed this book and that was surprising to me as when I realized one of the mc's had tentacles, I almost didn't read it. But this was so much more than I expected. I love a good sci-fi and this was good although more fi than sci. When Jimenez & Teo met in Teo's bar neither was looking for a permanent connection, but some attractions are just that strong. I liked the way Jimenez was determined to overcome his past and the way Teo was determined to support [...]

      Sci-fi M/m romance can be hit or miss for me, it's either too light on the romance, or too bogged down by convoluted plot and unpronounceable words and names. But I really, really loved this! Great world building, just enough to make it feel real and give the story substance, but them it did focus on the characters and their relationship. I loved Teo right from the start of things, I loved him with his family, with people in the bar, AND his tentacles!! Jimenez was such an interesting character, [...]

      4.4 StarsI was ridiculously surprised by how good this was, and how much I liked it. Very unexpectedt that I didn't have hopes for a good read (it is scifi after all) but I thought it was going to be basically just empty PWP with interesting sex.Well, it was interesting sex - 4 extra appendages will do that - but the actual story was pretty damned good. A former slave, created/designed/manufactured to sexually serve whether he wanted to or not (his tattoo fondled by someone else triggering a sex [...]

Usually, it is a mile or times ten, away. I and quite a few have been burned by that word, especially erotica works that involve, yes, tentacles.

      I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.This is a finely spun science fiction romance, dealing with many issues such as human genetic and personality modification, without getting overcomplicated, as well as slavery. The story is told between the two main characters, so you can gain an insight into their experiences and understanding of their situations. Jimenez, a recently rehabilitated and freed pleasure slave, is seeking buy and pilot a cargo carri [...]

      More appendages means more to loveCopy provided via Reading Alley in exchange for an honest review.Many people see the word tentacles and immediately run away screaming in the other direction, no doubt imagining a book full of sexual depravity loosely covered in a thin plot like material. This is not that book. Teo has tentacles, yes, but there's more to him than meets the eye; he doesn't just want to fill someone else's portholes. (He's done that already and moved on, he told us that himself.) [...]

      The title of this one combined with the blurb had me anticipating some sci-fi with some explicit tentacle action, and Ladnier didn’t disappoint. This is a new-to-me author, and I am happily looking forward to more!More space-station romance, more m/mwt (male/male with tentacles), more spaceships, and more taciturn heroes who always do the right thing even if it’s not the popular thing.Ladnier’s heroes were well developed, complex, and just lovely to spend time with. Jiminez had a painful p [...]

      ** spoiler alert ** (This book was received free from the author in return for an honest review via the Don't Buy My Love program.)Wow, absolutely charmed by this one. Loved Teo and Jimenez. Teo with his cheeky grins, fabulous bar, boisterous and loving family, and, well, tentacles. TENTACLES! Jimenez, a former slave who went through experimental reprogramming but still battled inner demons and his past. Storytelling here was really subtle and well done. Their periods of togetherness and then t [...]

      Love, love, love this story. Teo and his bar made for such a warm, welcoming atmosphere, and a lovely setting for big chunks of the books. It was easy to see how he would have become lost in such a vast family with the way all of them interacted over the coms, but it was also clear as well to see how caring and supportive they all were of each other. Teo’s intense attraction for Jimenez burned brightly and came across natural enough, especially as we learned a bit about his many, many past hoo [...]
