Title: The Rebellious Pet
Sometimes surrender turns into victory…
Forced to be the sex slave of an alien warrior, perpetual bad-boy, Joel, finds himself tossed into the bed of a space station commander who tests even Joel’s cultivated bravado. While he learned to survive an abusive father, the Travian proves to be a greater challenge. Joel soon finds himself caught between the desperate need to fight his captivity and the unnerving tug of attraction he feels for his new master.
Born to one of the lower castes of his people, Arath has worked his way up to a coveted command. His drive for success has left him isolated from his crew. He has no time or interest in caring for the pesky human pet thrust upon him by his superior. His duty allows him no other choice, so he reluctantly takes what has been given to him. He is surprised by how easily he is seduced by his pet’s allure.
Joel and Arath dance around each other and their growing attraction, until politics intrudes and tests their tentative feelings. The stakes are suddenly raised, and the choices they make may change the course of history for both of their species.
Reader Advisory: This book contains sex scenes of a non-consensual nature, as well as scenes of dubious consent, violence, abuse and torture.

This is the second book in the Alien Slave Masters series by Samantha Cayto and I would strongly suggest it be read in order. This novel starts off a few months after the first one, The Captain’s Pet. This story follows Joel who actually hit a spot with me in the first book. He was the human hard ass who first led the campaign to harass the Travian race back on Seven. He feels guilty for leading the boys to their “doom” but knew no other way to be than cause trouble.
Joel has accepted his role on Kell’s ship and is glad that there will be no more sex with any of the boys without permission; that is until Firth falls ill and he is taken to a nearby station. Joel accompanies him and soon realizes he should have stayed on the ship. The governor Lailth decides the human pet needs to be confined but concedes as long as he is under the commander’s hand, Arath. Joel is once again forced upon by a new master but he finds out that Arath, although bigger and stronger than Firth, he makes Joel feel safe. He also befriends another Travian, Wen, who helps him understand the Travian way.
Arath has worked his way up the ladder to commander despite his house and caste and he feels the human pet as a burden. However, as more time is spent together, they start to feel for the other but both skirt around it. Joel is straight but he can’t seem to fight his desire or budding love for Arath. In a strange turn of events, Joel ends up helping find traitors and save the Travian race on the station.
Despite this book still having an underlying dark theme of rape, nonconsensual and dubious consent it was interesting to read this Sci-Fi romance. Joel’s treatment also was better than what he grew up with (which does not give it the okay) but when asked if he wanted to be free from his captor he denied. He knows that he has grown from the rebellious boy and is more confident in who he is now than ever before. It makes him all the stronger for it. His life is better with Arath who will fight for, care for, and love Joel like no other. A dark happily ever!
