The New Guy (Office Aliens, #2) by V.C. Lancaster Review

    The New Guy (Office Aliens Book 2) by V.C. Lancaster 3 Stars

Maggie works in Enquiries at DETI (The Department of Extra-Terrestrial Immigration) and they’re a little under-staffed. She’s confused but grateful when a handful of Teissian refugees fresh off the spaceship are allocated to her department. She is put in charge of training Ro, a charming, scaled alien with a sexy voice, cute dimples, and a lot of secrets.

She knows office romances are a bad idea, but she just can’t resist after spending every day sitting opposite him. As the two get closer, however, questions arise that threaten their relationship. Why does his friend seem to hate her so much? What is he hiding about his life on his home planet?

Can Maggie get Ro to open up before it’s too late? Or will his secrets overwhelm them both?

Review

I really loved the first book in this series and while I enjoyed aspects of this book, it suffered from some logic problems in the world building and lack of communication between the characters.

The heroine is into the hero because of his sexy voice and he is nice. They move into dating. It is sweet.

And then they don’t talk and she doesn’t seek out knowledge about him and I can’t believe the other couple wouldn’t have talk to them and that basic knowledge about the aliens wouldn’t be around… rant, rant, rant.

I like the premise and I like some of the new details of world building but I was frustrated. Communication would have made for a much better book with a much better set of conflict.

 

Prison Planet Barbarian (Ice Planet Barbarians #14) by Ruby Dixon Review

Prison Planet Barbarian by Ruby Dixon 3 Stars! 

Being kidnapped by aliens is one thing.

Being kidnapped by aliens and then sent to a prison planet is something infinitely worse.

Here in Haven’s prison system, I’m stranded among strangers, enemies, and the most ruthless criminals in the galaxy. There’s no safety for a human woman here, especially not one branded as a murderer. I’m doomed to a fate worse than death.

Then…he decides I should be his. 
His name’s Jutari. He’s seven feet tall, blue, and horned. He’s an assassin and one of the most dangerous prisoners here. He’s like no one I’ve ever met before…and he might be my only chance.

Review

Yea! Prison Science Fiction Romance!

Why do I like it? I don’t know. I really like twinkles and zingers too.

This book doesn’t need to be read with the other books in the series. The hero is super kickass.

The heroine is okay. She gets better.

This is just a bit of fun in this genre. So, if you like Kent’s Hold, you should enjoy this one.

A Mate for the Senator (Brion Brides Book 9) by Vi Voxley Review

A Mate for the Senator (Brion Brides Book 9)  by Vi Voxley 3 Stars!

Eleya has done more with her life than most Brions will. Not only a General, but a High Senator, she’s achieved everything but the love that every Brion seeks. When a twist of fate brings her face to face with her second mate, can she move on from the pain the first one caused, or is he just another challenge to be dealt with?

Xaven as a more than capable Brion Captain wants many things, but being a General is not one of them. However a mate that is one… well, a man can have no objections to that, now can he? Only when it becomes clear that their paths are too divergent to come together must the warrior reconsider his faith in fate. Perhaps some things are not meant to be.

Or maybe they need to be fought for harder than he ever expected?

 

Review

I was so happy to get a bool about a Brion heroine. The High Senator is an amazing woman.

I liked the book a great deal until it seemed a whole section was missing from it when the hero and heroine grew and changed…and healed. Instead of letting us see this character development and letting the reader enjoy the couple falling in love beyond the fated mate bond and becoming more of themselves, we get a cut to a major action.

Too bad. This one was emotionially compelling in exploring the hero and the heroine but it did not do the work to make it a really great book.

As an aside, I really hate it when a writer uses cum instead of come as the action. Cum as a noun doesn’t bother me as much (I am not a huge fan but it doesn’t knock me out the of the story) but cum as in Cum for me and so on makes the book feel more like erotica and less like a romance. I like erotica but this is a romance. Anyway… lol

Review

 

Yea! Science Fiction Erotic Romance with Charlotte Stein.

 

Oh, the the smart mouthed sexy fun. And this is all true. It is also pretty dark. Good dark.

The hero and heroine are driven to each other.

 

The world could have been more developed to my taste but I would visit again.
