My Review: 4 stars
This is my first alien romance book, and let me tell you something…. I was not disappointed.
This book isn’t for everyone. There are parts that some people might see as a “trigger”.
Braccan is trying to save his race. His planet is lost and dying and he is running out of options.
When 5 women – aliens to him – are found and brought to his planet, he knows what he needs to do. He needs to mate. Him and his men need to mate this these aliens to keep their planet alive.
Aria has no idea where she is when she wakes up from a long sleep. She thinks she is in rehab but quickly realizes that something is wrong. That she is in a place that is far from home.
But one thing Aria knows a lot about is how to survive. And she is determined to survive her current situation.
When Aria realizes what Braccan wants to do – mate- she decides she will do what she need to do to survive. Even if that means mate with an alien.
But as Braccan and Aria spend more time together, things change. Their relationship changes. Their dynamic changes.
But what happens when it’s time to wake the other women to mate? Will the aliens listen to Aria and take her advice on it? or will they do whatever they want to do? Will Aria be about to provide a child for Braccan or will it all be for nothing?
This book was way more than I expected. I am not really a sci-fi fan, so reading this pushed me out of my comfort zone. But I am so glad I did. I’m excited for book two!
