Review: C.B. Archer – Desires of the Deep

Author: C.B. Archer
Reviewer: Lucy
Publisher: Deep Desires Press
Genre: Mm Paranormal

Rating: ★★★☆☆ 

Summary: The once elitist College of United Monsters (C.U.M.) has recently fallen on hard times. In order to stay afloat it has been forced to allow humans to register. Humans, in a monster school? Ridiculous! Also, monsters are real and that was probably a bigger shock to the world than one school of them allowing humans to enroll.

Cliff Waters is a ridiculous human. Mistakenly assigned to the Underwater Wing of the college, Cliff has more problems than the average student—sudden surges in popularity, sudden urges in the sexy monster student body, and being forced to hold his breath for hours at a time to attend class. Will Cliff be able to survive in the Underwater Wing of the toughest college around where everyone wants to taste a sweet piece of him?

Honestly, it serves him right for having a punny name…and attending monster college.

Review: This novella is full of puns and over the top humor in a paranormal atmosphere. Cliff Waters is a human student at the College of United Monsters and through a red tape mistake he has been assigned all underwater classes. This makes it difficult, obviously, and he has to get merfolk kisses in order to remain in class.

There is a ton of overt sex happening, “Most of the merfolk in the room were feeling themselves up while looking at him” and a lot of Cliff being chased for the chance to hump his legs. There is one purple haired classmate that Cliff thinks is interesting but he swims away whenever Cliff is near.

The humor is very in your face and at times it was too much for me. The book is only 81 pages on my iPad and that length worked well. I liked the “spying blur” aspect and the surprise of Humboldt but that ended with the sex scene. I won’t give away Humbolt’s secret but his actions weren’t for me.
