Kalazaron Dalik (Blue Planet Warriors) by Maia Starr Review
ALIEN ROMANCE: Kalazaron Dalik: SciFi Alien Abduction Invasion Romance (Blue Planet Warriors) - Maia Starr

Scientist Dr. Jade Roberts landed a position aboard a deep space mission to prove
female scientists were just as good as the men. But when the Kalazaron, an alien
race of dominant male warriors captures her, suddenly her new position becomes
human female slave. Her only hope to survive is the attractive warrior Consulate,
Dalik Moscurn, her new master.



The ruthless Commander Yun was merciless when he took Jade’s ship, and now she sits
in a cage waiting for his return. But when another warrior shows up with kind eyes and
claims her, she learns she is the new gift to the newly appointed Consulate, Dalik
Moscurn, much to the frustration of the evil Commander Yun.


Jade is to be the gift to the new Consulate.


Dalik Moscurn was groomed to become Consulate. Now, after winning the Stanis Trials,
he has won more than just the Consulate position, a human female slave. Unlike other
warriors, he has no interest in female slaves or taking any female for that matter, as he
does not want distraction from his work to revamp the city systems. But when he is gifted
Jade, she fascinates and distracts him like no other female he has ever met.


But there’s a challenge up ahead, and both Dalik and Jade stand to lose everything to the
ruthless Commander Yun. As they learn from each other, they soon realize that their
bond may actually be worth giving up everything for.

 

 

Review

 

The world is interesting enough and developed enough for some fun Alien Romance escape but then this horrible thing happened in terms of the writing style.

 

There are alternative points of view between the hero and the heroine (which I like) but the writer would show the same scene for each point of view. They would overlap.

 

I think the book ended up being way underdeveloped because instead of moving forward we stalled. The story of the book is really short as a result.

 

Yeah. Nope.

The Dark Princes: Scifi Alien Romance (T... The Dark Princes: Scifi Alien Romance (The Ravager Chronicles Book 2) - Sara Page

Very good follow up.
I was VERY concerned about how this would go, considering I was dead set on Drek the Prince being Ameia's one and only. Their connection in book 1 and the beginning of this book just blew me away.. But Striker's devotion to her, especially when things were uncertain, and the resistance from Ameia & of course the reluctant surrender from because it was their culture; made this all very believable for me. I got it.

And I loved how many things played out here with her step brother & others. How certain things were brought to a close and how others are just beginning.

Curious about what will be revealed and how those reveals come about in book 3.

I'm very surprised so far with this series. I'm loving it. I would recommend it.
On the surface, some things in this series are quite similar with what you've gotten in this genre before. But what I love are the unique layers here with regards to the cultures & the events. And how everything unfolds. So in this regard, this series is a breath of fresh air & quite intriguing.

And did I mention oh so very, very hot & sexy? ;)

Happy Reading :)

Alien Alpha: Qetesh Warrior (Qetesh #1) by Juniper Leigh Review
Alien Alpha: (Qetesh Warrior) An Alien SciFi Romance - Juniper Leigh

Novalyn Bryce is a student, tending bar at night to put herself through school in New York City. She has no family, few friends, and no romantic prospects.


Odrik Nuh’ar of Qetesh is seven feet tall, with skin the color of honey. He is a warrior hunter, with rippling muscles and ink black hair, and horns that wrapped around his head like a crown.

The Qet are a proud, tribal people, who were settled on the planet Qetesh two hundred or so years ago. Over those 200 years, most of their females have died off, leaving them on the brink of extinction.

The government, in conjunction with an intergalactic agency known only as The Echelon -- a group that serves to keep the balance of the universe in check -- has been plucking human women up out of their lives to bring them to Qetesh as potential mates to keep the proud people from dying out entirely.

Novalyn Bryce is one such woman.

Review

I loved the hero and the world was interesting if trite in some of its depictions. The heroine made me nuts. She was Too Stupid To Live.

The behavior of the suppliers of the women was immoral and that didn't match with their mission and I had trouble moving past that.

The heroine waffles until the last moment. I wished for better for the hero.

Markon's Claim (The Last Alphas of Thracos #2) by Marina Maddix Review .
Markon's Claim: A SciFi Alien Shifter Romance (The Last Alphas of Thracos Book 2) - Marina Maddix

She wants to do her job. He just wants her.

Ever since being taken in by the Wargs of the Valley, my sole focus has been on curing their fertility problem. I don’t care that everyone seems to think I should accept the bite that would transform me into a wolf-like shifter. I have more important things to think about.

Then I meet him — the dead-sexy new alpha of the Hill Wargs who can’t seem to get enough of my curves. Markon stirs something in me that I’ve never felt before, and that kind of distraction is the last thing I need. Unfortunately, it’s all I can think about.

And now he’s pressuring me to become a Warg, too. Something about finding out if I’m his fated mate. Nonsense! Fated mates don’t actually exist.

Do they?

Review

The genius heroine makes this wolf shifter romance set on another planet a lot of fun. The romance is really nice up until the moment it happens and then it goes super fast.

 

The series story develops more. The bad guys are cartoony but the research quest is intersting.

Ark: A Scifi Alien Romance (Dragon Empire Book 1) - Lucy Snow

Just some quotes to illustrate why this wasn't for me (besides the absolutely silly heroine):

 

Heroine, who accompanies the Earth ambassador to the most important meeting in all human history: "Of course I wanted a family. Working with Fuller all this time over the last few years had been wonderful, but it wasn't the same as having a special man in my life."

First of all, she sounds like 16, so "the last few years" had me scratching my head, and her general demeanor has me doubting Fuller's sanity for choosing a "I want me some romance" silly clutz as his attendent. Major FACEPALM.

 

The hero, who likes to kill things. Talking or interacting - not so much; killing, yeah! - tall, muscular, alpha: "I remembered venting to Kaalax in private, railing against the shame at being assigned to escort him to a "conference". The very world sounds like something babies would play at, not fit for real men, real warriors."

 

Of course insta-lust on the heroine's side as soon as she sees his muscular warrior's body, she nearly loses her professional cool (AHEM).

 

Their dialogue is so cringeworthy, I simply couldn't go on.

"Tell me about yourself, Ark." Ark stopped eating long enough to stare me down. "I am a warrior."

 

Oh, but he has a sweet and romantic side too! He has a little monologue about how passionate his race is about love, while shoveling food supplements down his gullet. And her reaction: 

I blushed, and quickly looked down to try and hide my face just as I noticed Ark's eyebrows raise in question. "Tell me about how your species loves, Ark. You make it sound so all-encompassing."

 

I even cringe inside writing that down. That has to be the worst come-on line in all history, alien or human. I can hear bad 70ies shag music in the background, groovy!

 

Then our precious heroine does a little slut-shaming with saying that humanity's way of love is basically crap with only serial affairs and one-night-stands and such awful things instead of sticking with their choices, because it has become "so easy to jump between relationships" (the 50ies called, they want their sexual morals back...)

 

I rest my case.
