Violet is a typical, down-on-her-luck millennial: mid-twenties, over-educated and drowning in debt, on the verge of moving into her parent’s basement. When a lifeline appears in the form of a very unconventional job in neighboring Cambric Creek, she has no choice but to grab at it with both hands.
Morning Glory Milking Farm offers full-time hours, full benefits, and generous pay with no experience needed . . . there’s only one catch. The clientele is Grade A certified prime beef, with the manly, meaty endowments to match. Milking minotaurs isn’t something Violet ever considered as a career option, but she’s determined to turn the opportunity into a reversal of fortune.
When a stern, deep-voiced client begins to specially request her for his milking sessions, maintaining her professionalism and keeping him out of her dreams is easier said than done. Violet is resolved to make a dent in her student loans and afford name-brand orange juice, and a one-sided crush on an out-of-her-league minotaur is not a part of her plan—unless her feelings aren’t so one-sided after all.
Morning Glory Milking Farm is a short human/monster romance novel, featuring a high heat slow burn with a lot of heart, and a guaranteed HEA. CWs include: cock milking, non-human anatomy, size difference, and a lot of fluid. It is the first book in the Cambric Creek monster romance series, and can be read as a standalone.
I don’t often read monster romances but after seeing Morning Glory Milking Farm makes it’s rounds on bookstagram and all the subsequent rave reviews, I knew I needed to give this a go – and I am so glad that I did!
This book had it all: a bizarre but incredibly intriguing (and well-thought through) plotline; a cast of wonderful characters, many of whom I want to befriend; a deliciously high heat, slow burn romance that’ll keep you on your toes; and a small fictional town full of different species and some wild experiences.
It’s a monster mash, y’all, and I’m ready to pack my bags and move to Cambric Creek.
To be honest, there’s not really a whole lot to say about this book since it’s one that’s better experienced but I will say it is very character-driven. In terms of the actual plotline, not much happens and MGMF is one of those cases where the book is better off for it! MGMF is really about Violet, a human who’s drowning in debt, feeling lost post-graduation, and overall just not living her best life. Stuck in a rut and on the verge of moving back to her parent’s in a town she was glad to leave, she makes the life-changing decision to take on a full time job at Morning Glory Milking Farm. And there, her life begins.
Violet’s growth and development is realistic and gradual. She creates her own life with this new job, and slowly making friends and branching out into the new community where her work is based. By the end, she is more self-aware, understanding and authentic. I really loved this for her and I enjoyed every moment of her journey.
Please note: sometimes readers can find that reading every little detail of the day-to-day as a bit monotonous but I didn’t find this to be the case at all with MGMF. In fact, I found it to be very comforting as I really got to explore her character growth.
And of course, Rourke, the minotaur hero. Three words: Stern Brunch Daddy😍
Basically, this book was absolutely amazing and I’m definitely going to check out Girls Weekend (orc romance written by Nascosta) and anything else this author publishes in the future. There’s even a teaser for Sweet Berries (hello, Mothman!), another of Nascosta’s books coming soon, and I am on high alert for its release!
