Leviathan Fitness is the favorite place of monsters, muscles, and a tentacled creature who can seduce even the hardest to win over human.

When local police chief Reece Rollins decides to sign up for a triathlon– there are two things holding him back. One, his distaste for monsters. Two, his sub-par swimming skills.

At the urging of his sister’s wolven mate, Reece joins Leviathan Fitness to train in the gym’s olympic size swimming pool. After running into Reece at the pool, Cyrus offers to help Reece get ready to win the race.

New feelings arise from the depths as Reece and Cyrus learn that monsters and humans go together, tentacle in hand. The only question is- can these two hold on to their new found love despite their differences?

Muscles & Monsters is book two in the Leviathan Fitness series. Each book will center around the gym and feature a different monster pairing.


Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

I read the first book in this series (Muscles & Monsters) because the cover looked cute, and then I saw this second installment is an M/M romance where one of the MCs is a KRAKEN. HECK YES! I am so in for romance with a kraken!!

Cyrus is so sweet, I wanted to just hug him and tell him everything will be okay. And while Reece starts out as kind of an asshole (especially if you’ve read book one and met him then), he goes through a lot of growth really quickly.

The entire vibe of this book is just so sweet and cozy (while still being INCREDIBLY hot!) and I loved every moment of it.

This is the second book in the Leviathan Fitness series. While it can be read as a standalone, the couple from the first book (Muscles & Monsters, Tegan and Atlas) feature heavily in this one as side characters. I CANNOT WAIT for the third book!!
