Release Date-25th June 2018
Genre-Reverse Harem Sci-Fi Romance
Kindle Edition-291 Pages

“Lucy Smoke has brought to life a world in Heart of Tartarus the likes of which I never could have envisioned and will never forget. Strong writing, a kick-butt heroine, and a perfect sense of what makes science fiction romance rock, has turned this book into one I will never forget losing myself in.” –Bestselling and Award Winning Author, Rebecca Royce

On Tartarus I was born… 

Soaked in power and secrets—Tartarus is a city for rebels, exiles, and criminals. As a messenger, every shadow is my friend. I know all the secrets of this place. Or, at least, I thought I did. When my best friend, Kida, goes missing, I don’t waste any time assuming her identity to draw her or whoever took her, out of hiding.

On Tartarus I will die… 

As I search for Kida’s whereabouts, Tartarus’ most dangerous gang—The Tanks—are slowly rising out of the chromework, growing more and more powerful. Every instinct in my body is screaming for me to run, to save myself, but I can’t—not without Kida. If I have to set the city ablaze just to get her attention, I will. And if the fire doesn’t kill me, the secrets I uncover just might.

***THIS COPY CONTAINS BOOK 1 AND 1.5 OF THE SKY CITIES SERIES***

This was so good: like seriously read in one sitting fab.
A new author for me and what originally drew me towards this series was the unusual premise behind the storyline.
I have read many dystopian themed books where the earth has been obliterated and society is now living in a new type of hierarchy or even taken off into space itself to a whole new planet: but an actual sky society was a whole new concept for me.

futuristic_city_3_updated_background_by_rich35211-d5a88fo
Such an ingenious imaginative idea: throw in a reverse harem type storyline and this was definitely an extremely unique approach to the whole post-apocalyptic sub-genre.
And this was such a fabulous introduction to what is looking up to be a first-class new series.
And the whole reverse harem thing well it’s subtle: like very, this is more about building emotions and the whole emotive relationship than any gratifying get your rocks off type thing.
In fact, this is a very slow build burn and as much as I am usually about instant gratification this really does work here and I have to say this for me was the best Reverse Harem I have experienced yet.
It’s so ingeniously applied that it becomes so normal and acceptable here without even realising it: Like second nature.
There is also so much flying under the radar here that totally stunned and intrigued me; This story was full of surprises indeed.
Also, the world building here was phenomenally well done: I was really impressed with how splendidly the whole city of Tartarus and its surrounding metropolis was portrayed.
The characters here were totally multi-faceted in there entirety and I really felt that I got to know each one intimately.
Quite a feat when this is actually only told from Cassie’s POV.
I loved Cassie and also adored her boys all of them brought something unique to the equation: something that Cassie needed: I also liked how protective and warm they were emotionally towards her.
I could actually see Cassie, Thayer, Levi, Aaron, Haze, and Noaz gradually morphing into a family and it was really lovely to behold especially considering the lack of caregivers in Cassie’s life.
So this volume contained book 1 and 1.5 it really could have been one if I’m being picky.
But no matter I read them as one anyway.
I am so looking forward to the next volume in this addictive new series and pleased to impart it won’t be long and I’m so excited that I have got an ARC of “Shadow Of Deception”(Sky Cities #2) coming so watch this space.

I really can’t recommend Heart of Tartarus (Sky Cities, #1) enough it literally blew me away with how fabulous it actually was: counting the days here until I get my mitts on the next volume.

Release Date-1st January 2013
Genre-Sci-Fi Alien Romance
Kindle Edition-106 Pages

Bay went from tortured human captive to exotic alien pet in a heartbeat. Zargonnii warrior mercenaries are like nothing she has ever seen before. What do they want from her? The unearthly world Bay is taken to is fascinating, frightening and a lot different from Earth. Zargonnii males have never seen a small, vulnerable female. Their females are huge, aggressive, dominant; and the two sexes live apart for safety reasons. Zane finds himself saddled with a bald, unusual pet Earth female. Females are anything but vulnerable in his world. This female is an oddity, and for some reason, his new pet brings on his mating cycle. Zane is mortified until he discovers this intelligent pet of his has a secret—she’s no pet at all. It takes everything in Zane’s power to control the temptation of his kind’s breeding habits—until he can control it no more.

This was such an enjoyable read: a lot more entertaining than I was originally expecting.
The story centres around Bay a human girl who has found herself after leaving Earth in the hands of an abusive Alien the end result being her probable death.
That is until she is liberated by another Alien being but with no idea what she is and being so small and defenceless he mistakes her for a pet and decides to gift her to his nephew back on his home planet.
This was actually strangely enjoyable and fun, just the ticket to pass a pleasant couple of hours.
I did find the idea of Bay being treated as a pampered pet by these furry aliens very amusing indeed and had myself quite the little chuckle very humorous.
little Draven was adorable and Zane his father was a big lovable furry hunk, this was such an easy sweet read that I literally read in one sitting.
Aliens that actually look like Aliens are my guilty pleasure and this one really did hit that spot.
Oh and on a sidenote Bay isn’t Bald she just is a lot less hairy than the Zargonnii so seems bald to them: just thought I’d clarify as I have been asked about that description in the blurb.
This one is a definite hell yeh from me folks Ive read it twice now so that says everything really.

Release Date-28th August 2018
Publisher-Hodder & Stoughton
Genre-Young Adult
Kindle Edition-320 Pages

The crown of Dihya had been stripped from me, my face changed, my body broken.
But I was not a slave and I was not a spare.
I was my mother’s daughter, and I would survive and endure. I would find my way back home. 

In a star system dominated by the brutal Vathek empire, eighteen-year-old Amani is a dreamer. She dreams of what life was like before the occupation, and of receiving a sign from Dihya that one day, she, too, will have adventures, and travel beyond her isolated moon.

But when adventure comes for Amani, it is not what she expects: she is kidnapped and taken in secret to the royal palace, where she discovers that she is nearly identical to the cruel half-Vathek Princess Maram. The princess is so hated by her conquered people that she requires a body double to appear in public, ready to die in her place.

As Amani is forced into her new role, she can’t help but enjoy the palace’s beauty—and her time with the princess’ fiancé, Idris. But the glitter of the royal court belies a world of violence and fear and if Amani ever wishes to see her family again, she must play the princess to perfection… because one wrong move could lead to her death.

Mirage by Somaiya Daud
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

mirage-header

There wasn’t really anything awful or bad about Mirage: it just wasn’t quite to my personal taste.
It didn’t have that pizazz for me: not managing to either grab or retain my initial interest.
I even found myself having to concentrate and work really hard on staying the whole course and I started this three actual times before progressing any further than the first few chapters.
I think maybe there might have been a bit of an information overload when it came to the world building; too much info dumped on the reader in one go, I myself would have prefered to be drip fed.
This also wasn’t really what I thought it was going to be at all and considering I was actually so looking forward to this one I’m a bit bummed, to say the least.
My journey will definitely be ending here as I am just not invested in this at all.
So the premise here was intriguing eighteen-year-old Amani is taken to the palace to act as the body double to a princess; here she enters a whole new world of politics, intrigue and also romance.
The concept behind this story was fabulous indeed: just for me personally it worked better as that concept rather than in reality.
I also think this was much to heavily geared towards the romance and as a result, a large part of the story was lost.
For me, I was expecting a much faster pace with more of a sci-fi action vibe, but what I got was far from that.
this was more heavily steeped in legend, mythology and love.
Look don’t get me wrong if this is your thing then it’s probably going to blow your mind: Mirage is full of lyrical prose and fantastical descriptions throughout.
The language used here is so beautiful with an almost poetic flow to it.
I myself am not a big fan of this type of prose: I imagine if you were this would definitely be your thing.
Though I’m not much of a fan myself I can still applaud and appreciate the appeal of this type of literature and this as a prime example disregardless of my own personal taste.
I also wasn’t that keen on Amani herself and also found the fiance Idris a bit lacklustre as well.
In fact, if I’m being completely honest the cruel Princess Maram was perhaps the most interesting character here for me and I would have liked to have seen a chapter from her POV.
On a sidenote just want to add that the front cover here was gorgeous, very eye-catching indeed.
So Yeh, in a nutshell, gorgeous front cover, beautiful language overall but this was not quite to my taste.

Release Date-31st August 2018
Genre-Alien Romance
Kindle Edition

Who knew reading sexy alien abduction stories could get a girl into trouble? Or that an e-reader could also be the gateway to another galaxy? I definitely didn’t… but here I am anyway, mated to the Tsenturion High Commander just like the unwilling human heroines in my favourite sci-fi romances.

The Commander demands obedience. He intends to claim me, train me, and turn me into his perfect little pleasure trophy. He doesn’t believe in love. I don’t believe in giving in without a fight. There’s no amount of discipline or ecstasy that could break me to his will… I hope.

Alien Captive is a hot alien abduction romance, starring one feisty human and the Tsenturion Warrior strong enough to potentially master her.

Disclaimer: the authors are not responsible for any actual alien abductions that may result should you purchase this book.

So really enjoyed this one; found it so very amusing and its super scorching hot to boot.
I also really adored that oh so ridiculous disclaimer.

The authors are not responsible for any actual alien abductions that may result as a consequence of your purchase of this book.

Love it; that definitely got a chuckle out of me.
Both are actually relatively new authors for me but it was all good from my corner as I certainly did enjoy getting acquainted with them both here.
So this one is red hot and does contain a lot of Alien hanky-panky, not that I’m complaining mind.
There are also some very unique differences in this interspecies romance that had my tongue hanging out in pure unapologetic delight, the fiercely descriptive originality of the narrative was fantastic and despite the many sexy scenarios we are introduced to here there is also a great imaginative storyline thread also running throughout.
I loved how Dawn ultimately arrives as a tribute for the commander it was really so inventive and was just so refreshing to also experience an alien romance that doesn’t take itself to seriously.
In fact, that was one of this books greatest assets its ability to make the fantastical just so mundane.
The scenario we are introduced to here was just so fanciful and ingenious that I found myself devouring every impossible word.
I bet we have all fantasised slightly; Ok I confess in my case a lot, about being the heroine in our own starring roles never for one minute thinking that fiction could become reality.
Be careful what you wish for as for Dawn; well her x-rated daydreams have certainly become her new reality; lucky lucky girl.
In fact, I only have one question left where can I get one of those E-Readers and where do I sign up?

Tribute.gif

On a final note, I really did enjoy the brief glimpse into what could be an excellent continuing series.
It really managed to pique my attention and interest and I for one would love to learn more and also explore where this could ultimately go.
So pleased Gavrill and Dawn got there much deserved HEA; fingers crossed that we do get a book two in this series; I for one definitely want to continue on here.
I mean come on we so need grumpy old Bogdan’s story next.

🌹BOOK REVIEW🌹

Release Date-1st December 2016
Genre-Sci-Fi Dark Romance
Kindle Edition-401 Pages

There is no Quinn without Que. 

Her only family murdered, the males of her species governing the prison designed to contain her, she mourns. Que had been her world, but it is Sovereign who enters her body day and night.

No man has loved a woman more, and no woman has hated a man with such passion.

She cannot help it. Designed to be the perfect slave soldier, programmed to exterminate her own kind, Sigil wants nothing more than to butcher those who would save her.

Sovereign’s many Brothers lavish her with attention, taking turns practising seduction to woo the only female who might propagate their species. No matter twisting limbs or thrusting bodies, no matter opulent gifts and distraction, Sigil sees what they seek to hide.

There is a dangerous secret Sovereign and his Brothers cannot conceal forever, though they are willing to risk the empire, their lives, and even her sanity trying. Is that not the definition of love?

Publisher’s Note: The second instalment in Addison Cain’s provocative and raw Irdesi Empire series is a dark tale with explicit sexual themes and complete power exchange. Some scenes are written to be disturbing. If such material offends you, please do not purchase. 

Sovereign (Irdesi Empire, #2)

Sovereign by Addison Cain
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

15543072
This gets a full house in regards to my rating just because as per usual whether I actually liked where the story was heading or not there was no way on heaven or earth anyone would have been able to prise me away from this disturbing tale of events.

giphy

I don’t want to actually go into to much detail here mainly because this just needs to be experienced in all its unapologetic entirety.
To actually comprehend the whys and whatevers of all involved here you need to intermesh yourself fully into the landscape and mindsets of all involved.
We are dealing with an almost hive mindset with a morally reprehensible outlook on all its society.
So basically the alliance and sigil are actually the bad guys and though you never can really condone their actions I could at least get to a point in my head where I could see how they had arrived at this current crossroads in the Alliances overall objective.
It is really all about protecting and acquiring precious sigil she is really the key to everything that has occurred and will occur despite her abhorrence for this fact.
In Sovereign, we delve more into the emotional side of Sigil but don’t expect her to suddenly blossom into all that is good and kind Our precious girl is still the psychotic sociopathic killer from the previous book as the brothers discover time and time again.
This story was so interesting and despite certain directions that I would have prefered otherwise, I was transfixed throughout; Addison Cain is definitely an author I can’t get enough of.
Her dark mind delves into crevises others fear to tread appaling and enthralling me equally.
So this was left in my opinion slightly open-ended for future story development which was great as I felt I got closure while still eagerly anticipating the next shocking chapter.
As such I am happy to wait even though I really do want it right now; just because I am so bloody impatient for my next fix.
I am going to leave you with my favourite quote from the whole book just to entice.

“Stop?” Sovereign’s grip tightened his voice razor blades. “It is always stop, isn’t it? I give you gentleness, you fight. I build you an empire, you hate me for it! I could take you here, on these very dead right now. I could make you, and you couldn’t stop me—just like you couldn’t stop me on Pax. I could push into your body anytime I wanted.” He bit at her mouth, lapped her lips before he shoved the startled woman away. “There is no STOP! There is only wait. Wait while you fuck my Brother. Wait while you mourn a being who never loved you. And I will wait, Sigil. You would be surprised how far my patience will extend. But there is never, ever going to be a stop. I don’t even think the grave could keep me from you

Kindle Edition-228 Pages

 

Giselle didn’t know how long she lay near catatonic willing the terrible headache to go away. She sat up as one of the reptilian aliens entered. Giselle backed up and looked around realizing she was alone in a gilded cage.
“What’s going on?” She stammered.
“If you’re wise you’ll keep quiet, pets don’t speak on this planet.” The creature admonished.
A pet? Giselle’s eyes widened. She hadn’t misheard.
Her cage was moved into a large tent. There were hundreds of aliens gathered for the auction, and these creatures were the largest yet. Their flesh was red like some kind of demon might be, with hair a uniform dark black. From what Giselle could see their eyes were a stone cold obsidian hue. Giselle noticed the fearsome creatures had long tails that rose out from what looked like chain mail kilts. Giselle shrunk back when she saw the creatures also had sharp fangs.
How in the hell could she get out of this and if she did how could she possibly survive on an alien planet?

Kagan beheld his pet. Nothing like her kind had ever set foot on Cadi. Kagan wondered where in the universe her unique species hailed from.
Giselle refused to behave and even enjoyed his attempts to rebuke her, reveling in the rough handling a male usually held back with females. Giselle was brave instead of meek, standing up for herself in a sea of foreigners.
Kagan had at first insisted that Giselle understand her place in Cadi society. But something more valuable than precious metal or jewels would be lost if Giselle was forced into the role everyone thought she belonged.

Can Giselle find acceptance and love on an alien planet or will she always be nothing more than a warrior’s pet?

I really did enjoy “The Warriors Pet” It’s been a while since I read me a good Alien romance and this one ticked all my boxes.
If I had one criticism though ( and this is where it lost a star for me ) its that I had to suspend my disbelief slightly as the story unfolded.
Giselle the Pet of the forenamed book title manages to completely turn opinions around as she slowly morphs into this super wise woman who excels at everything she does including war-mongering.
Bringing to a head years of conflict between two opposite warring factions.
I really just couldn’t see it myself; despite this, I still adored events here; losing myself in the rich well-developed landscape this author has constructed with such finesse.
So after Giselle is abducted from earth she founds herself auctioned off as a pet.
Eventually finding herself the personal Pet of Kagan.
Giselle is the opposite to everything a Cadi woman is; Bold, Brave and outspoken and it’s not long before Kagan starts to realise he just might have met his match in his new little plaything.
But stuck on a planet where Giselle is seen as little more than property can she change the attitudes around her and win her man.
So this was a great imaginative read that captured and kept my attention so easily.
It was told in dual POV; Kagen and Giselle’s and captured their essences beautifully.
I was super invested in all the outcomes here and despite some instances where I would have prefered a slightly different scenario than what we were given I still essentially loved most things about this.
I am a sucker for Aliens that actually resemble aliens and that is what we are given here with tail fangs and all and this for me was a massive plus point in this story’s favour.
Oh, and as an added incentive this was also smokin hot also; like set the pages to blazing.
So this gets a definite thumbs up from me It’s a fun sexy read that really manages to deliver.
A great start to a new series.

The fate of his people rests in her hands.

When the penitentiary ship she’s incarcerated in gets sucked into an anomaly, Kira barely survives the crash onto an alien planet. Along with a handful of survivors, she finds refuge in the fiery city of Caldera alongside its Fire Valos inhabitants. But the sadistic experiments performed on her by the prison’s scientist make the heat intolerable for her. When the opportunity to go to the frozen city of E’Lek presents itself, Kira believes she’ll finally find her new home.

Duke is confused by the strange human female. Like him, she’s cold, made for the icy lands of the Northern Valos. Her resemblance with the Creators and questionable friendships raise their collective suspicions. Yet, only she can save their lost tribes condemned to an eternal slumber. As his heartstone warms for her, Duke is determined to prove to his people that despite appearances, Kira belongs with them… belongs with him.

teasers3.jpg

This was my first book by this author and while I did somewhat enjoy “Iced” in some places this really wasn’t my complete bag.
I was actually really looking forward to this as the blurb really intrigued me and I do so love me an alien that looks like an alien romance.
So It wasn’t any one thing in particular that turned me off here.
I think it was just an overall combination of issues that didn’t quite gel for me.
Together they just stopped me emotionally connecting which was a shame because as I said earlier this on paper sounded so good.
So this is part of a larger series where each particular instalment is written by a different author.
I know, cool ay; I thought so too.
Each book can be read as a standalone while still being part of a larger picture.
I myself read “Iced” as a standalone and it did work.
I had no problem following along here despite being a newcomer to this alien world.
So Kira and Duke; this is where I had issues I didn’t particularly like Kira I found her rather judgy

ok_040513_joan-judgy.gif

I also struggled with Duke as well the way he was all about second-guessing Kira’s motives and all they were like matching bookends in the judgmental department.
Not very nice personality traits and all, as a result, I actually struggled to feel their connection.
I was just not feeling the love here.

5YMT

Look this wasn’t awful; I just didn’t live up to my initial expectations and also didn’t leave much of an impression on me probably because I didn’t really care that much about Kira or Duke.
I did finish and it did have its moments.
I guess for me this was more of a middle of the road read.
I borrowed “Iced” with my KU subscription.

He conquers her, body and soul.
Makarios of Kronos is a rebel, a smuggler who reports to no one, not even those on Rogue 5. But one betrayal sends him to a Coalition brig, and to a fate worse than death—capture by the Hive. He escapes but exchanges one prison for another. He now lives on the Colony, contaminated and deemed a risk. He’ll do anything to regain his freedom, including agree to a bargain with a beautiful, cunning warrior with secrets of her own.

Gwendolyn Fernandez volunteered to defend Earth from the Hive menace. For four years, she was a valued member of Coalition ReCon, until the Hive caught up with her, and a strange Nexus creature took special interest in her integration.

Gwen escaped with super-human strength and a will to live that cannot be broken, until the governor of the Colony demands she choose a mate. A bargain with Makarios seems so simple until he conquers her in a way no other has—body and soul—yet the Hive Nexus who wanted her for himself won’t take no for an answer.

Really enjoyed “Rogue Cyborg” for some reason I could have sworn I had already read this author before; my bad, I so haven’t weird that as I was convinced I had mmm strange one that.

tenor.gif

Well anyway, nope this is definitely a new author for me but one I would definitely read again.
This was book 6 in the Interstellar Brides series but I read it as a standalone and had no issues following along with the current storyline.
Everything is fairly self-explanatory here and it was really easy to get lost in this rich well-developed sci-fi story.
I do so love me a good alien romance and “Rogue Cyborg” delivered in spades.
It was fast paced well imagined and super sexy.
I adored both Mak and Gwen they made such a fabulous couple and I was rooting for them all the way here.
This was told in dual POV my favourite and was so smokin hot I needed a bucket of the cold stuff to extinguish the burn.
This had a great secondary cast and if you have read the previous books in this series prepare to get re-acquainted to some past staring players.
All in all, this was a fun read that totally captured my imagination and If you like a bit of the old Sci-Fi romance like myself then this one will probably be your flavour.
This gets a definite seal of approval from moi.

He wants her released into the enclosure. He wants to hunt her.

Recaptured during her escape from zone four, Maci Bishop wakes up in the mysterious, heavily fortified zone two, where wealthy citizens come to sate sordid, homicidal appetites by hunting death row inmates in a wooded enclosure. Live on camera, for spectators watching from the Resort.

Maci is rented as a plaything for a guest at the Resort, but when she kills her first customer in self-defence, her life sentence quickly becomes a death sentence. To teach the other women a lesson, the warden throws Maci into the enclosure, to be hunted alongside a vicious death row inmate named Callum.

Though at first, he believes the beautiful, half-naked woman is bait intended to lure him out, Callum saves Maci from a brutal death. As they fight their way through the enclosure, taking on hunters, guards, and ruthless robotic hounds, he falls hard for the tiny, clever hellcat and discovers she may just have the skills to get them both out of the enclosure alive.

But Maci won’t abandon the other women to pay for her escape. Not again. She won’t be satisfied until she shuts down the entire Resort: clients, guards, hounds, and all. And there’s no way in hell Callum will let her walk into the lion’s den alone…

Hunter is a 75,000+ word novel set on a planet populated by violent criminals, so expect a gritty story about characters who have to fight to protect each other and their relationship.

In most cases, the only difference between the guards and the inmates is the uniform each wears

“Hunter” is the second book in the prison planet series and I enjoyed this even more than the first if that’s even possible.
This continues right after the events at the end of book one.
And this time we get to spend time with Maci as she is transferred to zone 2 as entertainment for the wealthy patrons of The Resort.
This book is a totally different ballgame than its predecessor each instalment having such a distinctly unique flavour.
So after accidentally killing one of the paying customers, Maci is thrown into the enclosure alongside fellow death row inmate Callum to be hunted live for the viewer’s amusement by the deceased’s brother.
Think Escape from the New-York / Running Man / The Hunger Games but with super sexy shenanigans and you’ll get the basic picture.

tenor.gif

Unable initially to speak the same language and despite some initial suspicion understandably on Callum’s behalf; these two very swiftly bond; pulled together through there shared experiences and also through utter necessity each needing the others skill-sets for there very survival.
At the onset, their lack of spoken language maybe helping them to bond in a much more physical fashion.
Actions sometimes speaking louder than words.

He lifts a thick strand of my hair to his face and sniffs again. Then he rubs it on his cheek and says a word I hope means soft. Or pretty. Or something complimentary. Anything other than, “After I kill you I’m going to eat your flesh, shave your corpse, and wear your hair as a braided trophy.” Because that would definitely be a mood killer.

What I also loved about this was that though Callum was ultimately the muscle Maci was also no slouch when it came to saving her own butt.
Lacking the physical strength she uses other weapons in her vast arsenal and in a way it’s her actions that change the course of her and Caluums eventual fate.
I also really liked the Callum was secure enough in his own masculinity to appreciate and be impressed by the skills Maci herself brought to the table.

I stare at Maci in awe. Shaw may have thought he was putting her in here to die, but all he’s really done is arm the little tech-ninja with her weapon of choice. My little hell-kitten is crazy smart. She’s just used the warden’s own security system against him.

I also adored how blunt and Alpha Callum was while still managing to convey his affections towards Maci. He was a typical male sometimes not thinking to just express himself verbally expecting Maci to be a bloody mind-reader.

I already told you, hellcat. You’re mine. I’m yours. If that weren’t true, I wouldn’t be here. I wouldn’t have come after you in the enclosure. I wouldn’t have given myself up. I wouldn’t have escorted thirty whining women through the woods in the middle of the night. I’m sorry if it didn’t occur to me to actually say the words, but Maci, I love the hell out of you.

I absolutely adored the overall execution here especially the epic finale we are treated to when Maci goes all GI Jane on their butts. Sometimes the Damsel needs to rescue the prince; loved this so much it was totally epic.
And Callum himself may not be all hearts and flowers but he does express himself with such heartfelt individuality that I just couldn’t help falling for this deadly prison inmate.

Hell yes, you belong to me,” he growls. “And not in that ‘prison dibs’ kind of way. You belong to me like my own fucking hand belongs to me. Like you’re a part of me. And I will fuck up anyone who tries to sever you from me.

See such a way with words has Callum; how could you not bow down and just appreciate his pure masculine yumminess.
There is just so much here to adore and while this has some serious life and death struggles it is also filled with some terrific one-liners and tongue in cheek humour.
Everything thing about this book just worked for me on all levels and I’m am so looking forward to the next exciting instalment I really can’t recommend this series enough.

“Choose wisely. Then keep your head down and do what you’re told. Time will pass, and we’ll be back for you.”

Audra Copeland is among dozens of newly convicted felons dropped off on the prison planet Rhodon, where she discovers that the women of zone four have a long-standing arrangement with the men. If they hand over six of the new arrivals, the men won’t raid. And Audra has just been drafted.

She can take her chances on her own, or select a guardian. The deal is simple, if barbaric: sex, in exchange for food and safety from the other two hundred men in zone four. It’s a terrifying proposal. The men are violent, filthy degenerates.

Then Audra sees Tyson at the edge of the crowd. A hulking, scarred figure, the other men call him a savage, but his clothes are clean, and he’s holding a freshly caught rabbit. He can clearly protect what’s his.

As compassionate as he is powerful, Tyson ignites something fierce in Audra, and their connection is white-hot. The problem? Every thirty days, she’ll have to pick a new guardian.

Now that he’s found Audra, Ty has every intention of keeping her for himself. Even if he has to destroy the fragile zone four peace treaty to do it.

Guardian is a 70,000+ word novel set on a planet populated by violent criminals, so expect a gritty story about characters who have to fight to protect each other and their relationship.

BOOK REVIEW

Zone four is what Neverland would be if the lost boys were all violent criminals and Wendy were a psychotic pimp.

“Guardian” (Prison Planet Book 1) is one book that definitely snuck up on me catching me completely unawares and reeling me in so fantastically.
The simple concept behind this story worked for me on every single level; totally satisfying my taste for the slightly unusual I do so enjoy in my reading.
I spotted this on Kindle Unlimted and thought it sounded right up my alley so would give it a whirl.
I was going in here slightly blind here as have never read anything by this particular author before.
Well, hey-ho folks, I am now super invested in this dark delectable sci-fi/romance series.
I adored everything about this imaginative offering set on the prison planet Rhodon.
This tale is told in dual POV and centres around Audra and Tyson and the events that occur after she selects him as a best-case scenario when needing a guardian to protect her from the other male inhabitants.
This was gritty and imaginative with such dark undertones that I found so mesmerising.
The chemistry between the two mains gave me such tingles with its profound intensity and at times deeply emotional connection.

His arms encircle me, a warm band of steel, and he brushes hair down my back. “I’ve killed for you, Audra. I’ve gone hungry. I’ve fought. I’ve ripped apart walls, and doors, and a transport shuttle for you. And I would die for you. But I won’t let you go, for anything less than your freedom.”

I also especially adored the addition of Maci Bishop; I believe it’s her story next and I am really looking forward to uncovering more of this enigmatic girls past and future.
This was such a fantastic experience that I can’t recommend more highly.
Every so often I get a little gem that I wasn’t quite expecting that totally blows me away with its freshness and unique outlook.
Guardian was that jewel for me.
I’m gonna wrap things up here by saying I loved the old Snake Plissken, Kurt Russel films and this for me was like Escape from New York and LA but played out
in space on an entire planet and with more of a romantic sexy element; whats not to love about this.
The possibilities with this particular series are endless and as vast as the authors very vivid imagination.
I borrowed this one with my Kindle Unlimited subscription.
