Vialea #2, Celestial Mates: Romancing the Galaxy… #29
Science Fiction Romance
December 5th 2017
How far will Rhea go to escape Earth? Mate a big, bad (in the best ways), and occasionally green alien.
Rhea is leaving Earth and nothing will stop her. Not her controlling governor father, her asshole ex-fiancé, or the Department of Population who want to impregnate her. Which is why she contacts the one organization out of their reach—Celestial Mates. A questionnaire and blood sample later and Rhea is matched to a hunky, deliciously tempting, and alluring alien.
Erudan—once known as Teon, brother to the High Warlord of Vialea—did not register with Celestial Mates. Or rather, he’d never submitted his application. Yet a curvaceous, dark haired, green eyed human stands before him and demands they mate. Immediately. He lost his honor long ago and doesn’t deserve a female like the seductive Rhea, but that does not stop the wanting.
Unfortunately, others from Earth want her returned and Erudan is happy to show them the error of their ways. No one challenges a Vian warrior… and lives.
Going Green is book two in Vialea and book twenty-nine in the Celestial Mates series by Erin Tate aka Celia Kyle.
Each book in the Celestial Mates series can be read as a stand-alone. I picked this one up; because the blurb sounded nice and I’ve read and enjoyed other books by this author.
We jump right in and their is no true introduction to the series or characters. From what I picked up we continue the story that started in book one of the Vialea series and move onto the Prince who is the twin to brother to the King. Something happened in book one and now he doesn’t feel worthy of love nor does he feel he deserves a mate. As for the mate, Rhea, she’s on the run from her controlling governor father and her ex-finance which is why she signed up for the Celestial Mates. With a mate she won’t be forced to be in a loveless marriage and can find love, even if it’s not right off the bat.
This story is an easy and light read. There is no real depth to any of the characters. The mating is quick. The conflict is quickly and neatly resolved. And, the world building it’s minimal. Their just wasn’t much in this story to fall for.
Going Green was an acceptable read, but didn’t offer much. Not my favorite by this author.
