Matched: Jennifer’s Diary: BBW Polyamorous Paranormal Romance

 

Sci-Fi geek Jennifer is fed up. Her family is unsupportive and her love life is far from satisfactory. It’s not her fault that she has a super healthy libido.

Desperation leads her to volunteer for a partnership program offered by the Alliance of Autonomous Planets that promises to match her with her perfect mate(s). Maybe she will finally find relief. Human men have been a disappointment.

Will an alien mate fulfill her desires? Are shifters a real thing?

 

My Review

This book was kind of a fun romp about a young woman who travels to another planet to be mated with an alien. She hopes an alien will be able to satisfy her over active libido. An alien mate turns out to be three alien mates, a reverse harem.

L. Starfyre has some good world building and interesting plot twists. But…

As Jennifer gets into a routine with her three mates, the story stalls out. I get that it’s a diary. When I kept a diary, there were a lot of days not interesting to write about. She ate and slept a lot between  sex and body changes that turn her into a flying dragon shifter that can breathe fire. And of course, she got pregnant, but she was in a committed relationship .

The reason she needed to eat all the time was because she burned lots of calories turning into a dragon, learning to fly, and to breath fire. Matched has the makings of a great story, but for me the characters lacked depth, and emotion. The sex scenes weren’t overly explicit or offensive.

I liked the three alien mates, an alpha, beta and an omega that were sweet and attentive to Jennifer’s needs. The fed her, bathed her, groomed her and made love to her. How cool would that be? And they are fire breathing, flying dragon shifters.

After she started having sex with them Jennifer started to morph into a fire breathing dragon shifter, too.

Matched is  a pretty good story. It has all the elements of a great story but falls short, I think, because it is written as a diary. The reader gets everything from the main character’s view point, and there are many missed opportunities to delve into her emotions and her mates’ emotions, even as a diary. I think I would have liked it better had L. Starfyre written this in alternating first person, interspersed with diary entries.

Then, it ends in a cliffhanger but it’s worth reading. I will certainly take a look at the next in the series when it comes out.
