The Captain's Pet by Samantha Cayto

When a distant planet’s ownership is in dispute, conquering aliens turn defiant human males into pampered sex slaves.

In a not-too-distant future, a lopsided war has led to aliens invading and occupying an Earth settlement. Wid is a young colonist who has been caught harassing the aliens. He and his friends are rounded up and sent to an alien warship patrolling the disputed space. His fate is to serve as a sex slave for the ship’s imposing captain. Wid, at first, fights against his enslavement, but soon learns that not only does he stand no chance against the much larger and stronger captain, he isn’t sure he even wants to.

Like all Travian males, Kell is bound by duty to defend his people. Having risen to the rank of captain, he nevertheless chafes against the boring and endless patrol of the space invaded by the humans. His misses his family and constantly guards against his scheming first officer. He sees his reward of a human sex slave as more of a nuisance. Yet the pretty, fair-haired human’s exotic allure is hard to resist. He finds far more pleasure in the use of his pet than he would like.

Kept naked and leashed, Wid’s days are filled with boredom, while his nights wrapped in Kell’s arms turn from fear into pleasure. Even as the humans plot their escape, Wid and Kell form a bond and their growing affection cannot be ignored. When tensions boil over among the aliens, Wid and his friends may be Kell and his crew’s only chance for survival.

Reader Advisory: This book contains sex scenes of both non-consensual and dubious consent, as well as scenes of violence, abuse and torture.

4 Alien Stars
The Captain's Pet is a dual-perspective science-fiction, erotic novel between the Captain and his pet.

Humans fled Earth when it became overpopulated and unable to sustain all life. They found an uninhabited planet that could support human lives, only later to be taken over by the aliens who called this planet theirs. This is about as much of the worldbuilding as you're going to get, but it set the novel's pacing, and gave the reader enough to understand. After all, this is erotica, where physical action between characters is the focus, so I'm judging by its peers. I felt there was a good amount of worldbuilding for what it was.

Wid was a naughty human, along with a dozen others, doing small things like vandalism. The young women were let go, but the men were captured and taken to the aliens for punishment. Said punishment was to become the not-so pampered pets of their captors.

The pacing was quick, the science-fiction was easy to understand, the story was fluid. Wid and Kell were both 'good' characters in impossible situations, and the reader could sympathize with their plight. The side characters were interesting enough to want more of their stories.

Just note: this is a series, so not all threads were resolved by book's end, most likely to sustain the plot in future books.

Beware: there are many elements that will not sit well with some. There is violence, repeated force, sometimes mixed with violence. All of what makes this novel erotic was not romantic nor with consent. So if you're uncomfortable with that, you've been warned.

Will I read more by this author? Yes, I'm awaiting the ARC for book #2.

3.5 Stars
This was a good start to the series, however I found that it became a little repetitive in points.

Wid is captured by the alien race the humans are fighting against, they don't want to kill them, they want to make them into sex slaves. Along with the rest of the boys captured, Wid's life is turned upside down.

Kell didn't want a sex slave. All he wanted to do was his job so he could get home to his mate. However, he had to accept the boy as an offering or cause great disrespect.

We watch as Wid and Kell come to terms with their situation and begin to enjoy themselves.

Throw in a good old mutiny and a duel to the death and you have a party.

I actually can't wait for Joel's book as he has fight and it will be a good read.
