Synopsis
Avery and her friend go to the movies. They get abducted by aliens. Knowing that they will most likely die in the near future, they hijack the spaceship and crash land on a planet called Zandipor.

Turic finds Avery in forest and is convinced that she is the answer from the gods to save his people from the dinosaurs that also inhabit the planet.

Opinion
This book was not for me, but the story was okay.

First of all, let me say that I am not a fan of first person POV. I will read it and if the story line and voice of the character is okay, I can deal. I need for the person speaking to be halfway logical enough for me to tolerate their voice. Otherwise, I get very irritated. It’s like hearing an annoying person speaking. The more they talk, the more I want them to shut it.

In Avery’s case, I thought she did not have much common sense. She knows what she should do, but does she do it? Nooooo. I was rooting for the dinosaur at one point. I needed something shut her up.

Plus, I’m guessing that TinTom the robot was supposed add humor to the story. I wanted to drop kick that stupid robot across the terrain and hope a dinosaur stepped on him as he rolled in the river.

With all of that negative emotion, I could not even focus on Turic and his barbaric ways. He was okay, if a little too frisky in my opinion.

To be fair, despite my obvious issues with their personalities, I repeat, the story was okay. For me, I could not focus on the plot because I had a dislike for some of the characters.

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
I say BORROW but if you like alien abduction or corny humor in your sci-fi alien romance, you might want to BUY. Just be prepared to probably exclaim “OMG she is so annoying!”

Latest Genre Binge: Alien-Human Woman #romance #scifiromance

As I have mentioned before, I sometimes get in a genre binge moods. I was feeling like some alien-human woman romances.


Amazon made some suggestions and I started clicking. In retrospect, I probably should have searched a little more. These books were short and mediocre at best. I tried to look for the positive though.

Caressed by the Savage Alien ♥♥

Plot in a nutshell: Viktor kidnaps Natasha because he feels she belongs to him.

TOW Opinion: He was a self-entitled jerk in the beginning. She had family and friends that loved and missed her. I was not used to that. My moral code dictates that only women that have no family or friends are allowed to be kidnapped. The only bright point was that she was able to get him wait before getting physical.

Rescued by the Alien ♥♥

Plot in a nutshell: Melody is kidnapped from her home and is sold to Garon from an alien slave market.

TOW Opinion: She was only 20 which is too young to be starting any relationship. The whole thing seemed really traumatic considering it was supposed to be a romance. The only bright point is that Garon was nice.

Waking up with the Alien ♥♥

Plot in a nutshell: Mary goes to sleep and wakes up on another planet where she is told she is to wife of Ac’von and made queen. Plus, they are changing her name.

TOW Opinion: I thought the author needed to hash out the plot a little more. The alien characters did not seem to have much patience for a person they just kidnapped. They brought a stranger to a totally new world, but expected her know how things worked on their planet. Plus, their race seems to have a lot barbaric traditions and a tinge of overwhelming misogynist tendencies.

Should you buy any of these? There are so many better books out there, BUT if you are looking for a little bit of evening reading entertainment, any of these might fit the bill. I do not read a lot alien-kidnapped woman romances to know if I am being too harsh with my rating. I do realize, there are readers who will like the book for exactly the reasons why I did not like it.

Accidental Abduction – Blood, Boobs, and Carnage #Blogfest #bloodboobscarnage

I am participating in  a blogfest called Blood, Boobs, and Carnage

The terms were simple- choose a movie, book, or television show that fits the theme. It can be any genre that fits the bill – fantasy, science fiction, action, adventure, western, thriller, etc.  This Blogfest is hosted by Alex J Cavanaugh andHeather Gardner.

I chose the book Accidental Abduction
3heart

Synopsis
Tren is an alien that thought he was beaming up some fish from earth to sell on the universal market. He didn’t mean to abduct the human female too, but now that he has her, he wonders what to do with her.

Megan was drowning in the ocean after her boyfriend pushed her off a boat. Instead of dying, she is beamed up on to a space ship. While she knows she should be more subdued, she cannot resist being mouthy.

Tren prides himself in staying in control of his emotions and actions, but Megan pushes all his buttons and ignites his baser instincts. When she is kidnapped on purpose, he will stop at nothing to get her back.

Opinion
This book. Where do I even start? I guess I should explain why I chose it for the challenge.

Blood

When Tren decides that he is not going to deny how he feels, his enemies see kidnapping Megan as a way to manipulate him. THAT does not go well for them. He has no mercy when it comes to eliminating his enemies. Funny thing, Megan is gets a guilty thrill on the fact that he killing all these aliens to save her. She is trying to be shocked, but at the same time, she is like

Boobs

It is a romance.
Tren has no nipples!
And he says she is weird for only having two breasts.

Carnage

There is a line of entrails from evil villains that tried to kidnap Megan, but failed miserably. It is the wild, wild west in the universe and no one messes with Tren’s mate and gets away with it. She gets kidnapped twice and both times Tren is like

 

Overall,  the book made me laugh. Tren was not trying to pick up a human to be his mate, it just happened. Megan was cheeky, brazen, bold, and audacious as ever. Tren tried to intimidate her, but she had nothing to lose. To be fair, he did keep threatening to sell her. She was just calling his bluffs. With all that sexual tension going on, there was only one way it was really going to go.
