Lenni Reviews: “Triceratops and Bottoms” by Lola Faust

I’ve seen these types of books around and since there was no way in the hell of any religion I was going to pay money to indulge my morbid curiosity, I grabbed this (and a few others) that were offered for free.

Now, most of my reviews are fairly short; a quick blurb and my equally quick thoughts as not to spoil the experience (in most cases). If someone is interested and doesn’t want an essay on the book/comic/manga etc., I like to think my reviews will be something short to see if they’d be interested.

But we’re gonna take some time for dinosaur fucking so buckle up. This is a thing.

Our protagonist, Erin – introduced by her firm, perky nipples – lives in the year 2122 where nanobots do most of the work keeping her in a luxurious lifestyle. But all that modern tech has made life boring, so Erin has time to indulge her most wild fantasies. Feeling as if she’s experienced everything, both legal and not so much, Erin takes advantage of a new invention: a time machine.

I’m only 9% in now, by the way. Make note: my copy had some formatting issues. If anyone else cares to admit they read this, feel free to let me know if your copy was the same. No judgment here. Formatting is a bitch and has no bearing on the rating I give.

When Erin stated she felt “like a nerdy girl at her convention” for asking a logical question at the unveiling of the time machine, I took a strong sip of my IPA and wondered if I should branch off into doing drunk reviews on YouTube of books like this. But then I remember I’m in my 40’s and nobody needs to see my old ass face so, text is what you get.

I’m also not sure my liver could take it.

Anyhoo, despite the obvious (and much nerdier) pitfalls of time travel, Erin and her pert nipples are excited to go to the Jurassic era.

Could I have summed this up in a few sentences like my other reviews? Yes. Would it be as amusing? Probably not.

Now, again, I am not going to go in hard on format, typos, or grammar but there are certainly places where either I or Grammarly would have made better choices. I’m also gonna have to give some latitude to the dinos instantly understanding. Telepathy or some sort of other connection is a trope in these I’ve heard. This is my first dino porn so, forgive me if I get that wrong.

I freely admit this is not my thing and I either cringed or gagged at the smut scenes. This entire book is Erin seducing various species of dinosaurs. I have run multiple 5ks and done 10k training and it was more work and less enjoyable reading this book. Every so often I wonder what readers will think about the few smutty stories I’ve written, especially since most of my work isn’t erotica but this has taught me there’s an audience for ANYTHING. I don’t think I’ll be reading other books in this genre since, not to be crass but my brain hurts and I’ve never been drier. Serena’s Plight made me less uncomfortable. 1 out of 5.

*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.

Ken faces the Holy Emperor, a tyrant who kidnaps and enslaves children.

Now, I like this series and I understand that in order to be a threat, the villains have to actually show they’re dangerous but I’ve never been a fan of a lot of collateral damage surrounding the main conflict. And the main showdown didn’t even happen so this ends on a cliffhanger. It just didn’t seem as thrilling as other volumes; it just felt like disaster porn. 3.8 out of 5.

*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review and is suggested for mature readers.

After Oya rescues Yrui from Jin – a detective – Yuri sees just how violent Oya and his world can be and wants Oya to be safe. But Oya has other plans for Jin, who is in love with Yuri and wants to save her.

Like with the other conflicts in this series, the Jin stuff gets wrapped up quick and the rest of the volume is just Oya and Yuri being in love and having sex. The main thing that changes is the switch to Yuri being more dominate while Oya is recovering from his injury. 2.7 out of 5.

Stetson is a nightmare hunger who ends up on the trail of a serial killer who killed her daughter.

This is pretty wild and creative; gory if that’s not your thing. The art style takes some getting used to but I think it fits with how chaotic it all feels. Stetson is is a kickass lead and I want to see how it all plays out but it took two reads for me to get all the information and adjust to the drawing style. 3 out of 5.

Now that Coyote knows who Marleen really is, Marleen is put on house arrest to keep him away from Coyote while the wolves and wolf hunters conspire with their respective groups behind the scenes. Coyote takes a huge risk to try and rescue the man he loves.

While Coyote and Marleen are sweet and they have their spicy scenes, I am all about what is going on with the wolves gearing up to take on the mafia family that’s hunting them down. I am super excited to see all this come to a head (no dirty pun intended) in the next volume. 4 out of 5.

This series follows four teenage boys as they find their way through romance and relationships in high school.

In this volume, we focus on Natsuki, who is hoping to spend Christmas Eve with his friends who all have girlfriends. This is very slice of life, light, and breezy with some laughs. Definitely a book that’s something to kick back for a relaxing read with a cast of characters that are all pretty likeable. I found myself rooting for them to be happy. The art is classic and expressive with some fun details. 3 out of 5.

Chloe is making big bucks as a spirit hunter and ascending the ranks so she takes a more challenging job in direct competition with more experienced hunters and terrifying foes.

This volume has a ton of action and sets up a cool villain with some great potential to be a real threat. Chloe is still a great character with an engaging personality. Even though this is packed with a ton of information about new abilities, introducing the other hunters, and seeing them in battle, I like where this is going. 4 out of 5.

Yagyu and Satomi start to make plans for Christmas and they head into their first Valentine’s as a couple. Tatsukawa, who works with Satomi, is looking like he will interfere with their relationship.

This series is perfect if you want some low (well, more like “no”) angst romance. The main couple is cute and precious but other than young people being in love for the first time, there isn’t a lot of conflict here so, it’s very slice of life. Cute but a little fluffy for my tastes. 3.7 out of 5.

Ko and Nazuna have their final showdown with Kyoko, the vampire hunter.

The vampire hunter arc comes to an end and I’m mixed about adding the hunter as a permanent addition to the cast. It was written well but Kyoko did a lot of damage and it’s clear her story is far from over. This is taking some intriguing turns and I like how it’s all coming together. They keep the story going in an entertaining way. 4 out of 5.
