Yes, I actually read one of those dinosaur, semi-erotic stories. Finally. I’ve tried a few in the past to see why they were becoming a thing, but I don’t think I finished any. Jurassic Jane Eyre isn’t one I DNF’d. I actually enjoyed what I read.

I think the main reason I enjoyed this story was because it didn’t take itself seriously. The author wrote a pretty good story, while letting the character narrate the ridiculous situation as if she were just as baffled by what she was getting into.

I also thought that it touched on sexuality in a good way, even if it was brief (it was a short story after all. Can’t elaborate too much in a few thousand words.) It was just enough to hint that the stories this was parodying might not be portraying homosexuality (at least most of them deal with non-straight relations) in a more truthful light, despite the fact that it’s also a dino-human relationship.

I’d check out other stories from this author for sure. For a few minute escape, and some good laughs, it was definitely worth checking out. I also thought the addition of the “Science Disclaimer”, which pointed out all the inaccuracies in the story, added even more to the experience.
