For years, a war has torn apart her kingdom, turning the one-time tailor into a solider in the local militia. Now her village is under attack. Taylor’s fought long and hard for freedom, but now it seems that she’s on the losing side of the battle. As her town burns, her enemies unleash one final weapon. Something so terrible that it’s been the stuff of legends. An Ogre. A massive monster who can grow as tall as a giant and ignite his whole body in ravaging flames. Nothing can stop such a beast. …Unless Taylor figures out a way to free him from his captivity and convince him to join her team, instead. Last of the race of ogres, Dom has spent years enslaved by the humans. He doesn’t understand them. He doesn’t like them. And he sure doesn’t care about their pointless wars. When he first sees Taylor, though, he begins to seriously reconsider his hatred for her people. Taylor is nothing like the other humans. She’s brave and beautiful and full of ideas. Sure she’s a little bit small, but he’s still dazzled with his good fortune. Ogres recognize their mate when the first see them and everything in Dom knows this crazy redhead is supposed to be his. He just needs to convince her that an ogre can be Mr. Right. When Taylor tells Dom she has a plan to end this ridiculous war, he eagerly agrees to help her and her screw-up of a brother reach the king. It seems like a good chance to win Taylor’s affections and he’s not very concerned about the dangers they’ll face. After all, he can just kill any humans who get in his way. What could possibly be simpler? Except before long, they’re dealing with a band of unscrupulous pirates, angry villagers with torches, assassins on their tail, and getting lost in a forbidden forest. Taylor wants to help Dom escape his captivity and regain his stolen homeland. Dom wants to show Taylor they were made for each other. But, surviving to see their happily ever after just might be harder than either of them think....

    The story is fast paced with some really fun, sarcastic dialogue. It was a fresh idea to me to have an attractive ogre.The plethora of f-bombs was surprising considering this is a fantasy...and I wasn't impressed. The are also many words in italics. This did made it more clear how the characters were stressing what they said but wasn't fun to read. Besides the profanity there are are lot of lusty thoughts that push this story into 17+There is a misunderstanding that goes on for most of the book that caused me to skim because it was so frustrating.mature content

    3.5**Not as funny as the super villains...409 pages is not long enough perhaps? I do enjoy getting to know the secondary characters, Ransom especially; she really needs her own book, we don't even know her real name -there's so much to tell- and Uriah (hey, why isn't his name simply Pirate??) as well.

    I really enjoyed the plot of this book. But more than anything else, I was spellbinder by the absolutely good an rich writing.

    The plot is nice, there's action, there's strategy, HOWEVER, the heroine is a bit...confusing, she's seen as the super capable, resourceful, the oh-so-intelligent and gifted strategist when she's not really all that, she sounds over-confident in various occasions and that's a bit annoying. The hero is fine, absolutely devoted to his fated, nevertheless, that wasn´t enough to save the plot (for me).Sometimes the conversations looked uninteresting and the attempts at humor, forced.Didn't finish the book, it couldn´t get me interested enough, but it's not bad at all.

    Just plain funEver since I discovered this author I have had a field day binging on her books. This one was no exception. Luckily I started it after a shift on a Saturday so that I wouldn't have to put it down because I just couldn't stop laughing. My only thought was that I wished the heroine would listen more but the whole book was great and I will definitely be going back for more :)

    I really enjoyed this book!! also I loved the relationship between Taylor and Dom because it reminded me of Beauty and the Beast, even if the story here is absolutely original! Plus I loved Ryle's character!! the dialogues are absolutely entertaining and like Nobody likes fairytale pirates is beautifully written. MUST READ

    It was alright, more of the I will do anything for my love stuff. Generic characters, but still a pretty nice story.

    Got to 30% and just couldntThe first bit was promising and i was on board, then noticed that there are at least 10-20 italicized words on each page. Like i as a reader cant inflect the dialogue in my head. As though i am too stupid to understand english cadence and meaning without being slapped in the face. The dialogue became soupy and repetitive pretending to be wittish and clever. And i gave up.

    I don't know why…but this book fell spectacularly flat for me. It was a Gannon book-- which I usually love for their witty characters and sarcastic dialogue-- but I felt like I missed the celebration for this one.The main couple were just about as enthralling and emotional as a bunch of stoned pancakes, and the plot was into the toilet (for the most part). The humour wasn't even on point, as it usually is with these guilty-pleasure books of the Gannon sisters-- except when it was related to Ransom and Uriah.Honestly; the only reason I'm giving this a satisfactory 2 stars is because of them. This book was pretty disappointing, but it had some nice points. Definitely reading the next book to see how Ransom and Uriah turn out.

    I really enjoyed this book. Sarcasm, a smart heroine, pirates, there was little not to love. That being said I can't give it five stars. I even tossed up over four - because I did really love this book - except for the rather frequent detailed mentions of rape. A passing mention and I probably would've dismissed it but Buggane constantly gives explicit detail about what he wants to do to the women and it made me sick. So in good conscience I can't give five stars and four is probably pushing it as well but I was in frequent hysterics so it is what it is. Disregarding the rape mentions, this still probably isn't a book for everyone - the humour is reminiscent of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - I love that book but I know that I'm in a minority rather than a majority who enjoy that style.

    So different, so goodThis book is nothing like I've read before; well fantacy/romance yes but never in the way that this story was told. I read one of her sister's books first and loved it. I wasn't sure about this one but I wanted to give her a chance too. This is a silly story yet it moved me. I laughed out loud, got mad a couple times, and truly felt for the best pirate/barbarian I've ever had the pleasure of reading about. There were two areas that I had a small issue with. I felt that the way the two main characters were able to come together physically wasn't really addressed and that italicized words were used more often than needed but neither of these things were enough to stop me from giving 5 stars. This is only the second review I've posted. I don't normally take the time to complete a review but this story deserved it.

    A very silly book of Ogre loveThis reminds me of some 1920s farcical play where lots would be settled quickly if all the characters just sat down & listened to each other. Lots of great, ridiculous dialogue.It seems to be set in "medieval times" based on weaponry, but people talk in 21st century slang. It has a "Mad Hatter" crazy-logic that can be fun or a bit scary, but the violence isn't too descriptive--more threatening than actual. There is a bit of sex for those who are sensitive to such things. But this is more about followingaround these ridiculous characters as they try to decide their next move in a world falling apart to war.

    Quite a nice surprise of a book. I really enjoyed the voice of the whole thing. I laughed out loud several times throughout the book, as several characters were quite sarcastic (and done pretty well, as sarcasm can be TOTALLY mis-written).A bit more physical romance than I expected, so if you are not into any sex descriptions in your reading, go into this one eyes open (or one eye closed if that makes you more comfortable). Otherwise, good job, and I plan on checking out some more of her books.

    This book started out well. The ogre was funny, the heroine and her brother had a good relationship and were trying to survive the war. But the ogre's blind devotion got annoying after a while. Her brother even commented he would do or say anything to impress her. I put the book down and never picked it back up.

    Hilarious!This book is absolutely hilarious! I laughed nonstop and thoroughly enjoyed both the characters and the world... Although I wasn't a huge fan of Uriah and ransom. I'm a sucker for the good guys. They were still awesome characters though, but I loved Dom and Taylor.

    I decided not to finish this book. The crudity of the language really bothered me. I read fantasy for relaxation - not to be bludgeoned by bad language.
