Ice Planet Barbarians: The Complete Series: A SciFi Alien Serial Romance - Ruby Dixon

Interesting.

 

Pluses - the alien mates aren't the abductors
It's an interesting world

 

Minuses - first person isn't a favorite of mine.

 

Things I let slide - the H demonstrating his cunning lingual skills on an unconscious heroine. He does seem to be kindof like a neanderthal so I would assume he didn't know any better.

 

Things that made little sense - 250 years in the past, his ancestors crash landed on the planet. His people are clueless. of this. Really? No story tellers, no busted tech?

Recent Release Review! Their Bride (The Marriage Lottery # 2.5) Stasia Black & A.S. Green!
Their Bride - A.S. Green,Stasia Black

 

 

All Vanessa ever wanted was to be loved.
Okay, strike that—all she wanted was not to die at the hands of the homicidal maniac who was obsessed with hunting her down—AND to be loved.
Was that too much to ask?

 

Going to Jacob’s Well and becoming a Lottery Bride sounded like it would make all Vanessa’s dreams come true.


For the first time in her life, she’d have a family. For the first time in her life, she’d have not just one person to love her, but FIVE.


And she’d be safe from the notorious female slave trader, Lorenzo Bernal.

There’s just one teeny, tiny problem.

 

When the lottery husbands are announced, it turns out none of them intentionally entered. And they want out of the bargain.

 

*Events of this novel occur at the same time as events in Book 2 in the series but Their Bride is a full-length, standalone novel in the series.

 


“Their Bride” is full of emotions, passion and excitement that keeps readers glued to the pages.

 

These strong, appealing characters capture the hearts of readers as each has vulnerabilities and issues that hinder their relationship which provides lots of emotional turmoil during all the sizzling chemistry and heated passions of this captivating romance. Vanessa is a strong courageous woman with a challenging past that has kept her on the run but she remains strong and strives to make her own dreams come true which readers can certainly relate to and all the men easily ensure that readers want to help them overcome their problems and reach for happiness. Each of the men are different with unique issues so this adds variety and ensures that readers are never bored throughout this romance.

 

The fast paced and smooth flowing plot is not full of blazing hot passion and steamy sex scenes but it is also full of excitement, danger and a few surprising twists involving each of the characters which keep readers glued to the pages. This story references some of the events that take place in “Theirs to Protect” and continues a bit further in the future than where it ended, so while the story is standalone and can be read before the second book, for readers to get the most enjoyment out of the books, the series should be read in order due to the overall events that take place throughout the series.

 

I found that reading “Their Bride" actually made “Theirs to Protect” even better because this one made things more complete having read both books and I really can’t wait to find out what happens next in the series.

Stasia was born in Georgia, grew up in Texas, recently spent a freezing five-year stint in Minnesota, and now is happily planted in sunny California, which she will never, ever leave.

 

She loves writing, reading, listening to podcasts, and has recently taken up biking after a twenty-year sabbatical (and has the bumps and bruises to prove it). She lives with her own personal cheerleader, aka, her handsome husband, and their teenage son. Wow. Typing that makes her feel old. And writing about herself in the third person makes her feel a little like a nutjob, but ahem! Where were we?

Stasia’s drawn to romantic stories that don’t take the easy way out. She wants to see beneath people’s veneer and poke into their dark places, their twisted motives, and their deepest desires. Basically, she wants to create characters that make readers alternately laugh, cry ugly tears, want to toss their kindles across the room, and then declare they have a new FBB (forever book boyfriend).

I live in the cold, upper Midwest with my husband and three kids. I spend summers on Lake Superior, which is the muse for my contemporary romance, Summer Girl, and I’m a sucker for down-to-earth men who work with their hands (if they play guitar, that’s an added bonus). I love all things Irish—particularly music, dancing, and Jameson. When I’m not writing or reading romance, I’m traveling, camping, visiting book clubs, blogging for Writer Unboxed, and writing paranormal and contemporary young adult novels (under my real name).

5 Out Of 5 "hacker-if-ic" STARS
This Mortal Coil - Emily Suvada

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~BOOK BLURB~

This Mortal Coil

Emily Suvada

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

In this gripping debut novel, seventeen-year-old Cat must use her gene-hacking skills to decode her late father’s message concealing a vaccine to a horrifying plague.

 

Catarina Agatta is a hacker. She can cripple mainframes and crash through firewalls, but that’s not what makes her special. In Cat’s world, people are implanted with technology to recode their DNA, allowing them to change their bodies in any way they want. And Cat happens to be a gene-hacking genius.

 

That’s no surprise since Cat’s father is Dr. Lachlan Agatta, a legendary geneticist who may be the last hope for defeating a plague that has brought humanity to the brink of extinction. But during the outbreak, Lachlan was kidnapped by a shadowy organization called Cartaxus, leaving Cat to survive the last two years on her own.

 

When a Cartaxus soldier, Cole, arrives with news that her father has been killed, Cat’s instincts tell her it’s just another Cartaxus lie. But Cole also brings a message: before Lachlan died, he managed to create a vaccine, and Cole needs Cat’s help to release it and save the human race.

 

Now Cat must decide who she can trust: The soldier with secrets of his own? The father who made her promise to hide from Cartaxus at all costs? In a world where nature itself can be rewritten, how much can she even trust herself?

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

This book is amazing, one of the best dystopian's I've read in a while and absolutely a new favorite.  For a book involving gene hacking, splicing, decoding and lots of technical terms and such this is completely comprehensible and seriously compelling.  It also depicts a plaque virus with walking dead-like creatures that will explode and then infect anyone in a certain radius, plus some crazy plot twists that will blow your mind.  This book is pure genius.  There is also some romance…but it is done well and does not dominate the story, at least in my opinion, but I like some romance.  Book #2, This Cruel Design, comes out at the end of October.  I totally recommend!

Review: Futuristic Violence And Fancy Suits
Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits: A Novel - David Wong So I say this everytime I review a book by this author, this was insane! It's set in the not-so-distant future where the cars are self driving, holograms are a normal thing, and most of the world lives their lives either creating or watching a continuous live stream of their mundane or extreme existences. Zoe gets caught up in a mess of her late absentee father's making. There's his crew, the suits, who all wear actual fancy suits and are equivalent to the futuristic mafia. And then there's the evil villian Molech, who's basically a kid with daddy issues and a god complex. He wants to take over Tabula Rasa (and then the world) and pretty much destroy anyone or thing he deems unworthy. The problem is, that Zoe holds the key to either his success or epic failure. So basically there are people trying to kidnap or kill her, or gain access to the vast fortune her father left behind for her (which includes his company and his "Suits"), or they want to protect her. There are so many left turns in this story it's almost hard to keep up. The author kept me on the edge of my seat for this one. I was never really sure how it was all going to work out. The most important part of this book was that Zoe's cat survived all of the gunfire, explosions--basically carnage. I'm all about the animals people. And it wasn't exactly an open or ambiguous ending, but there was definitely the hint of a sequel. I shudder to think what kind of mess Zoe would find herself in in a sequel!

CODE OF CONDUCT by KRISTINE SMITH
Code of Conduct - Kristine Smith

I was a lot confused reading this book. I had the short-story prequel and really liked it. This is 15-ish years later. I'm not exactly sure what/who the female protagonist is - ex-soldier, document reviewer, alien, cyborg. The main bad guy (there are many) for this story wasn't really a surprise. Even though I'm confused, I still enjoyed the book. So I'm reading the rest of the series.
