Orld and in doing so some find their s I really struggled with how to rate this one because I
wanted to like it I enjoy when authors are bold with alien design to like it I enjoy when authors are bold with alien design not afraid to make them as non human as possible while staying humanoid enough to be compatible I was stuck in the 24 26 star mark for this book do I round this down to a 2 or up to a 3 I chose to round down The things I liked I appreciate sci fi in my sci fi romance reads so I like TSTL Annoying heroine ruins itWarning SpoilersDNF 75%Wow could this heroine be any nonsensical and annoyingLet me set
up for ou This Attirance Criminelle Tome 1 your run of the mill alien ship full of human women crash lands and women are found protected and mated eventually to the Male inhabitants Nothing real original about this I m not disparaging the author clearly I enjoy this subgenre from time to time since I read it or tried to couldn t force myself past 75% So the h got on this ship willingly to be mated to a different alien through an intergalactic mating agency She was trying to escape Earth due to an abused past with her father then ex husband Upon first discovering her following the crash the H reacts to her arousal which is his kind s way of knowing their mate To cut to the chase the heroine is completely resistant to his advances and basically gives him he s the leader of his area s people a very hard time about every little thing he does with the human women and for her She is rude and pushes him away over and over again She disrespects him in front of his menThings I found I couldn t get past1 She claims to have been abused badly most of her life but other than cowering when faced with H s temper not directed at her she doesn t act at all afraid of H2 She was already on a ship headed to marry an Alien she didn t knowet somehow found it unacceptable to accept the fact that she could be a mate to H even though she continuously thought about how well he treated her and how attractive he was 3 The WHOLE time she kept on and on about how she felt like a prisoner and wanted freedom and in the next thought remembered the monsters in the dessert and that there wasn t enough food and water Is that what being a strong woman is to this author being completely illogical to what s around Notes sur la mlodie des choses you and inconsiderate to those trying to helpou Standing by morals all good but culture goes both ways and gratitude toward ppl keeping ou alive is justified 4 Even after it was explained to her that not having sex with her was making the H irrational and hard to control his anger she comes on to him and has him give her oral and multiple Os all while thinking about how she s not ready for actual sex Againdoes that sound logical or at all considerate5 75% and she was still acting the exact same way had not DTD and was telling H s enemy that said he wanted H dead that his fight was with H not her We re supposed to believe in a romance that 75%in the h is still a cold B I don *t think so The writing itself was okay I just couldn t *think so The writing itself was okay I just couldn t the h and how she shaped the story I will try the author again as many said she s written better DNF Ended at 62 % Celia Kyle hooked me to her stories with sassy heroines and Alpha males with a huge dose of humor This book has one of the most annoying females I ve ever read in a book I can t stand her and I keep cringing when her pov is present Also I don t enjoy a book when an obvious alpha male is being reduced to nothing by an asshole of a female This book just annoyed me to no end and I have to give up today.

The first book in a new series by an *AUTHOR WHO USUALLY MAKES ME LAUGH OUT LOUD THIS *who usually makes me laugh out loud This had a different feel to her irreverent shape shifter stories and actually even went a little darker than the Alien Dragon stories I ve read from her This is actually following a popular trope of human females being stranded on an alien planet with of course aliens that are in many ways physically compatible even if at first sight a little scary The difference for this read was these aliens are not really sounding that attractive and our heroine Sheri does freuently refer to Drazen the Warlord as a lizard From the first description of him it s clear he has scales reptilian features and a forked tongue Yes I realise that tongue is meant to incite bedroom fantasies but unfortunately I honestly didn t find it attractiveSo what did I think about the story I liked that there s no instant lust although I m sure Drazen would loudly disagree Any scenes of a truly intimate nature occur oo about seventy percent in which to this reader made it much realistic I just couldn t imagine Sheri wanting to bump uglies as soon as she realised they were stranded and the big butch Warlord had claimed her The world building was interesting and I enjoyed the small peek we got of other tribes on the planet I would have liked about the way these people live as we don t really "Get Information About Their "information about their fauna or wildlife but this is the first in this series so stay tuned Drazen is without doubt a sweetie at heart although these aliens are very violent Which leads me to say that Sheri freuently mentioned suffering from abuse back on Earth so obviously I was sceptical about how she interacted with Drazen as she never seemed cowed or downtrodden Still this author always gives her readers a happy ending so perhaps I should just say that this could turn out to be a very interesting series and I m intrigued to find out what happens nextThis voluntary take is of a copy advanced to me and my comments and thoughts are honest and I believe fair This was an ok read not my fave by these authors by far but decent nonetheless The end sort of came rather abruptly and I wish it had of a conclusive feel Given the reptilian nature of the men on the planet I m shocked how uickly some of the women adapted Then again they were on their way to become alien brides already so I guess maybe some were mentally prepared than others lol The heroine was ok she was a bit floppy floppy with her moods and feelings With an abusive ex in her past she at times seems horrified by the hero s often grumpy and destructive behavior and others she just accepts things too easily For instance she sort of takes charge in the crash she s thoughtful about the other women and that just sort of tapered off over time I wish we got info about this weird planet they re on but I m sure that s something we ll learn about as the series continues on Good start can t wait to see where things go Well I liked it but I didn t like it I felt there was a lack of communication between the mc s although Sheri had a translator chip I also felt that the women gave in really fast i did like the world but it was weird for them to be so primitive in one moment then having so much technology but they cant contact other planets and have never traveled through space it doesn t really make sense 25 3 stars i was seriously dissapointed in this this could have gone places but no i didn t get what i wanted boo hiss I lied this review s not uickish at all.
