So this is all told from a Cryptop doctor and scientists POV, he is the one overseeing the breeding programme to keep this fragile species from extinction and It was definitely a unique and unusual read. Its also kind of a love story told through observation between Beastly and Pet (named while in captivity) and it managed to capture my imagination so entirely. It also made me wonder if maybe there was a deeper message to impart here. what instantly came to the front of my mind here is our relationship with apes and the limits we place on there supposed intelligence compared to our own, well in this scenario we were indeed those aforementioned apes being studied and tested. This was also fascinating and surprisingly emotional and I did really enjoy the pure uniqueness of it. This managed to surprise me and I liked it much better than I initially thought I would, a very thought-provoking read.

    A dark, depressing and tortuous read. It’s a shame this author felt the need to go on trend and write a dark SFR. She normally writes much happier books, which I’ve enjoyed. This one was depressing. Do not recommend. Hope she goes back to happier fleeing books.

    Fascinating I can’t say much without ruining the experience, but just read it. I’m sure you’re checking out the synopsis, trying to decide, but you have to just read and experience this oddball, interesting, little story. This was so odd and...slightly disturbing, yet at the same time fascinating and...sweetly hopeful, I guess, with a happy ending. I say happy ending in the context of humans kept as pets by aliens who don’t understand them, but find them adorable the way we find a dog or cat Fascinating 😳😶🤭🙃 I can’t say much without ruining the experience, but just read it.

    A divergence from the genre Milo usually pens, The Pet Project is an interesting piece of fiction that leaves more questions than answers. But be aware: this is not a romance novel, at least not in the way we've come to expect them. Even before reading her afterward thoughts, it's easy to see the idea for this piece came into being around the same time as Contaminated and Contagion. And you know what? I'm really digging these scientific male alien POVs. They're a hoot.

It's more what would possibly happen if the aliens stopped trying to mate humans and kept them as...actual pets. It's not the first time I've seen it, but it's definitely a less grim take.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I grabbed this one because it was Amanda Milo. It was odd, dark and kind of sweet/disturbing. The entire story is told from the alien/non-human POV. Aliens come to earth and discover humans. (Refer to us as ‘tenders’ due to tender skin/fragile) Humans become the hottest pets to have for most of the universe. Nothing sexual between aliens and humans. They find that many humans die in captivity and they can’t seem to make any humans breed well to make more. It’s kind of dark. You know how you think I grabbed this one because it was Amanda Milo.

You know how you think the traits of two dogs or cats would make the most adorable puppies/kittens so people try to breed specific pairs? Now apply that to this story... The main POV is a new Alien researcher who is trying to successfully breed ‘tenders’ in a lab environment. Sort of an HEA at the end. Humans are still pets, but the main guy is working on a translator & realize humans need to be happy. Recommended if you’re ok with dark subject matter.

    Interesting story on what if humans were treated like not-fully sentient creatures like humans treat dolphins and various creatures on earth. There is romance but only shown as witnessed by the alien scientist. I found it a fascinating read and was really rooting for everyone to have a happy life.

    The Pet Project Okay this was definitely a different book but I truly did like it. Beastly and Pet were very much in love and even though the perspective was from the doctor you could feel all the emotions with these characters. They came alive and caught your attention. The world building was very unique and fascinating. Ms. Milo thank you for being such an amazing author and bringing such a wonderful story across so well thought out and executed. I would recommend this book.

    4.5 stars Damn , that was weird. I'm weird because I enjoyed the hell out of this book. It's just such an interesting take on aliens and pets and the bonds between people. You would not believe how much I liked this book. It's a little disturbing when you think that this could happen if aliens would exist. And I'm pretty sure that's exactly how we would react in captivity. Freaking loved the trivias at the end. And I find the author's mind and inspiration completely fascinating. No regrets. 4.5 stars Damn , that was weird. I'm weird because I enjoyed the hell out of this book. It's just such an interesting take on aliens and pets and the bonds between people.

    What would happen if we were to aliens as rats are to us? Kept in cages,bred to sell,sentience acknowledged but intellect not,experimented on,kept in a lab? This book is told from the perspective of an alien who studies and loves his "pets" and while the idea may seem terrible, Amanda Milo in her own way manages to pull it off while letting the reader to like this alien too. Yes,it includes some very dark descriptions, some triggering scenes but overall it is a nice story. Fair warning-HEA here What would happen if we were to aliens as rats are to us?

    No plot no discrptions no world building just sex I am so surprisingly upset with this book. I knew it was going to be a steamy sort of book what I didn't know is that there would be no plot whatsoever. The only thing I loved about it is that it was short. First off an alien race comes to earth and we eagerly board their ship. No indication of what this species looks like throughout the whole book except I gather they are taller than us and maybe thick skinned because they call us tender skins.

No indication of what this species looks like throughout the whole book except I gather they are taller than us and maybe thick skinned because they call us tender skins. Secondly an alien race who can traverse the galaxy thinks we are incompetent idiot's who can't communicate. Even though they can take our eggs and seed and make a baby in an artificial womb they can't piece together our dialect. Thirdly if these humans have any brain whatsoever they know that they are caged and being bred for selling so why would you willingly want a baby who will be forced in the same way. And fourthly the main woman in the story for the life of me was the worst of all the characters. Being force to breed and submissive to the alien even trusting him with her new born baby and everyone lives happily ever after. I'm just stunned I wouldn't have finished this if it were not short and I honestly didn't finish if you count the bonus epilogue. Were was the plot the realness of being caged and forced into slavery. I almost feel like the humans were the mindless pets that the alien perceived them to be. Wow this review was almost longer than the story and very much more enjoyable thanks.

We basically have human trafficking at the hands of aliens. And, told exclusively from the alien's pov, slavery and domination is stated to have been welcomed and needed by humans. There's never a redemption from this train of thought. At the most we get that the 'breeder' is against children being separated from the parents until they come of age. Or, if you want humans that will breed, you have to buy them in mated pairs. Follow those rules and the selling and owning of beings that are recognized as sentient is quite alright! Had the narrator, or some alien somewhere in the story, had an actual turn around in their feelings about keeping humans as pets, I could see this as a growth story and understand the necessity of going through the animalistic treatment in the journey to reach their A-HA moment. But, the fact that the story ends with the breeder becoming fond of the humans, recognizing they had language and intelligence, yet still feeling completely alright in breeding and selling them - and eventually doing so on a grand scale, left me with a severe cringe after reading.

    This was a surprisingly unexpected story. An alien race, Cryptops, has visited Earth (Tenders in the book) and after finding humans fascinating they decide to domesticate them. This doesn’t go well in the beginning. Cryptons do not know how to treat the fragile “insentient" humans. Many of them die and as there is a high demand for exotic human pets, scientists try to breed them in labs. Like human scientists nowadays breed different races of dogs.

I suppose Cryprons are huge because he can carry humans in his arms in a similar way that we carry our pets. He is a good male and as a scientist he has integrity and ethos. He looks after his pets and take care of his needs. The whole thing is a learning curve for him. This is a very strange book. It is very dark. It is NOT romance – although there is a love story included. Also it has a very subtle and very clever sense of humour. The end is HFN, but I have a feeling that a revolution of the human pets is coming soon.

    Different but in a good way Didn't know what I was getting into when picking up this book but it definitely was worth the read. Very well written had me engaged the whole time. This isn't a human alien romance book by any means. Mocumentary is the closest way I can think to describe it. It's all written from the aliens point of view who has no understanding of humans language or level of sentience; treating them more like we would a favored dog.

Made me feel like I was part of the inside jokes whenever the humans would do something that puzzled the alien narrater and was excited to see if he would ever put the pieces together. Definitely hope in the future the author explores this premise further. Has what I would concidere a HEA ending.

    Surprised Enjoyment Did appreciate the warnings so decided to try it out. It really was clever of the author to do it from the Alien’s point of view since it created distance to what was happening. But what was most important was the Alien does care if his charges are happy and healthy. He simply does not see humans as evolved but as highly intelligent animals and wants every comfort for them. It was very interesting seeing it from his POV and liked the epilogue and considered the story too short Surprised Enjoyment Did appreciate the warnings so decided to try it out.

    It was interesting and fun to read short story that has a great potential to become a proper book of fiction to sink your teeth into.

    This story is well-written, a lesson in POV, and kind of disturbing. Milo is a master of letting us see what the non-POV characters are feeling by showing us their behavior through the eyes of the POV character. I also appreciate the brilliant creative mind that can come up with this scenario. So the romance, I'm torn. Kind of? It's not with the POV. So, I'm categorizing this as erotic horror. Because as you read it, if you take the role of the humans or "tenders" in the story...well I'll leave This story is well-written, a lesson in POV, and kind of disturbing.

    No alien on human, just FYI I loved that in this book it’s purely a friendly interest in the mating couple and not in a relationship with Pet. It was heart warming reading his input on all that went on and how he made their lives a little better! Love love love pet! She’s funny without even her talking. I felt a little bad for Prime cause you could tell he didn’t want to do anything without Pet being on board. The whole book was a quick great read!

    Something fresh in the alien world of Amanda Milo!The perspective of this story is interesting, seeing the breeding project from the doctors side. I never know what to expect with each new release but I am always pleasantly surprised with how A.M. continues to pull out new worlds that are easy to fall into. This is a great one to read if you're in a book hangover or just need a quick read before bed.

    A new path traveled. I found myself thinking and rehashing this book in my mind hours after I finished it. I enjoyed the read (duh it’s a Milo) but thinking that humans are pets in this world gets the mind whirling. The acceptance of their captivity probably got me the most but, if that is all they had ever knew, I can understand it. I would have liked to know the thoughts of Beastly and Pet and Prime but I guess we did.

    Amazing! This was such a thought provoking story! I've read a lot of alien abduction stories (though no one can ever claim to have read them all), and this is the first one I've read from this unique perspective. I love finding out how things work and in another life I probably would have been a scientific researcher, but combining a research story and a romance like this was pure genius! I will definitely be reading more of her books.

    Another one Amanda Milo always has something good to read. This story was definitely different and intriguing. It gave me both sad and happy feels and that's all you can really ask for in a book. If I could give 3.5 I would! 4 is for rereads so if I ever read again I'll have to change my rating. A great book to read to try and finish that end of year reading goal before the new year that'll leave you satisfied and not like you cheated lol

    This was pretty short indeed, but a decent and interesting read. Told entirely from the doctor’s perspective, which feels different. I actually enjoyed the POV more than I thought I would. But, I’d also really liked to see the perspective of the other characters and a longer story. Overall, a fairly new take on the whole alien doctor - human experiment thing. If Milo wrote more in this world, I’d definitely read it.

    Wow! Wow! Wow! I am blown away by this book! I love how the author stayed true to the voice of the storyteller and didn’t intermingle different voices. We saw this book through the researcher’s eyes and it was amazing! The attention to detail really pulled you in and made you root for Pet and Beastly. I love the ending and how we get to see everyone’s journey. Highly recommend!!!

    It's a short book, that's a given, it has an interesting plot and despite the heavy topics as abduction, rape and captivity the note of the writing is high, not just doom and gloom. The whole story is told through the eyes of the alien abductor which can be fun but at some point, it got too tiresome for me. I would read the next books in this universe granted they are not told by a third person or too short.

    Wow! "CUTE" Slavery... The parallels I can draw between this story and slavery in the United States is mind-boggling! What was this author thinking? To frame such vile and sickening actions into a whimsical, light-hearted story is beyond me. This goes way beyond the 'earth damsel in distress rescued by big sexy alien' type of pseudo-slavery stories. Yuck!!!
