Mated By The Cyborg by Olivia Myers Review
Science Fiction Romance: Mated By The Cyborg (BBW Space Sci-Fi Romance) (New Adult Paranormal Fantasy) - Olivia Myers

His face is humanoid, under his pants is a technological marvel.

Kimi, a curvy accomplished botanist, is proud of how her expertise helps humankind thrive on Planet Venora. The only negative aspect of her job is her occasional interactions with emotionless cyborgs, such as Lee 5, who help ensure the safety of Venora’s citizens.

When she’s selected for a special mission to visit Earth and sample the new plants growing there, Kimi couldn’t be more excited. Her excitement falters, however, when she’s introduced to the mission’s security detail: none other than the cyborg Lee 5.

It isn’t long, though, before the cramped confines of their spaceship push them closer and closer to each other, so that they can’t deny the attraction between them. But will she ever be able to discern his true feelings?

 

 

Review

 

No matter my love of cyborgs I just could not with this book. Characters do unexplainable things. Really unreadable for me on so many levels.

No Light (The Dems Trilogy #1) by Devi Mara Review
No Light - Devi Mara

"Name?" he demanded.
"Sarah Mackenzie." She swallowed hard. She would be like the ones who had fallen, her remains something to be cleaned from the floor.
"Age?"
She tried not to tense when he brought his face to her neck and inhaled deeply.
"Twenty-two." The lie tried to stick in her throat.
He pulled back and gave her a dark look. "Try again."
"Eighteen," she whispered, tensing when his lips pulled back from his teeth in a shark smile.
"A lie, Sarah? How nice that you are not as innocent as you look."

The Dems have been held captive since before the world was made. They are the darkness only spoken of in whispers. As much as they are hated and feared, those who guard them are even more so. The pariahs of society, they live apart from the rest of the world in a settlement called Ameritat. That is where The Dems Trilogy begins. An unlikely and dangerous love between a human guard and the most feared of all the Dems. It will be the beginning or the ending of everything.

Sarah Mackenzie was never meant to be a guard, never meant to descend into the bowels of the earth, but The Corridor is where she is sent. With little information and even less training, she is thrust into her position as a Dem handler. She walks a thin line between life and death, as she tries to uphold her family honor and unlock the mystery of the Dem’s captivity. The pursuit of truth will drag her deep into a world of corruption, hatred, and greed and she will have to decide where her loyalties lie. With the humans who have mistreated her or the Dem who could destroy them all.

 

 

 

Review

 

This book made my head hurt. I read the whole thing mad.

 

The book is written so at first we have no idea what is going on. The heroine understands very little and we get to know even less that she does.

 

It is all very foggy. Then we learn more but never really enough. Then, the badass immortal alien prison falls for a dish towel heroine who isn't really but how would we or he know.

 

They take forever to have sex which makes sense given the prison revolt and all but it is still super odd in terms of romantic love.

 

A more fog rolls in but the action picks up.

 

The tone has a lot in common with horror romance but not.

 

So, I was compelled by something to finish the book and was happier by the end but disgruntled feeling that writing played games with me and I never attached to anything.

 

Then, I read the next book in the series which is much clearer.

 

So, I wouldn't recommend this book. I some how got sucked in the vortex of trying to figure it out but didn't enjoy myself and I need joy.

Darkness Blooming (The Dems Trilogy #2) by Devi Mara Review
Darkness Blooming: (The Dems Trilogy #2) - Devi Mara

Rissa was born and raised in the darkest parts of Sinmer. She is single-minded in her focus and willing to do anything to achieve her goals. She can take care of herself and needs no help from anyone. Least of all, Prince Lonan.
It is not up for negotiation.


After centuries of punishment, Lonan has regained his title. He has never had any use for humans. Aside from his brother’s queen, Sarah, he considers them a waste of space. So when a tiny spitfire stalks into his life, he wants nothing to do with her.
Or else.


With failure a very real possibility, King Farran is taking no chances. The Dems’ fight against the Revolution is building and the group seems intent on wiping out a portion of humanity. With her people threatened and danger building every day, Rissa must work with Lonan for the good of all or doom them all to death.

Wynter's Warrior (The Mating Challenge #1) by Mardi Maxwell Review
Wynter's Warrior (The Mating Challenge Book 1) - Mardi Maxwell

A determined alpha warrior......
When aliens make their presence known to the population of Earth they bring the news of impending war with them. The enemy who destroyed their home planets is approaching Earth. Zaryq, the leader of the Za’Artha, is determined that his people survive and repopulate their ranks. They’ll share their advanced technology in return for the right to test human females for compatibility as mates.
 
A desperate woman……
Wynter Fields lives under the suffocating rule of two powerful political parents. She’s doomed to marry a man she despises, or risk the safety of the only person she loves. When Earth’s women are asked to volunteer for testing she hopes she’s found a way to escape. All she has to do is reach her destination unnoticed.
 
Nothing ever comes easy…….
Strong in public but willing and submissive in the bedroom, that’s the requirement to become an alien mate. But that isn’t all. A rite of passage…the Mating Challenge...must be conquered before the final mate ritual can be completed. With only six days to train with her warrior for the rigorous test ahead, tensions run high. If Wynter isn’t strong enough to survive the life threatening challenge, Zaryq will be forced to let her go. Losing the Mating Challenge is not an option

 

Review

The trite parts of this book (alien bdsm, half a plot in terms of the outside action, alpha male) were balanced with a lot of fun surprises I don't want to ruin.

 

I have a soft sport for marrying into the unknown and working together which this book does nicely. I am excited that there are lots of alien cultures in the Alliance and am looking forward to fun of that aspect of the series.
