#Review : Mating Wars: Cygnus #alienromance #scifiROMANCE

Mating Wars: Cygnus 

Synopsis
Aura is looking for scrap metals or anything of value in space so that she can sell it and eke out a living instead of fighting in the wars on earth.
Cygnus is a purple skinned bear shifter who has been in stasis, floating in his pod in space. Soon after he awakes, his pod is found by Aura. After a run in with pirates, they are on the run for their lives.

Opinion
This was a fun story! I do not prefer first POV books, but I was intrigued to read about 7-foot purple skinned bear shifter alien with teal genitalia. It was something about the description that made me so interested.
Once I started reading, I was hooked. There is a lot of dialogue and that helps keep the story moving.

Aura was very feisty and held her own with Cygnus. He thinks that he has to defend Aura and cannot understand why she does not stay on the sidelines while he proceeds to fight on their behalf.

What is hilarious is that every time that Aura saves him out of a sticky situation, Cygnus takes it as a “shame debt” that he has to repay. Plus, Aura has to teach him the benefits of being polite since he is used to using his strength to get whatever he wants.

Even though the whole idea of a female holding her own is a culture shock to Cygnus, it all ends well because he is genuinely a nice guy that is trying to do what is best.

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
BUY. This book will have you laughing out loud.

Alien General’s Wife

3heart

Synopsis
Indigo entered her name years ago in to a Draconian mating lottery to be mated with an alien dragon shifter. She was never matched, so she went to college and continued with her life.

Meanwhile a violent alien race called the Mulgor has invaded earth and killed a lot of people in the major US cities. Sadly after slaughtering her family, Indigo received notification that she has been matched with a Draconian mate. Having nothing left to lose, she goes to check in and be matched.

Vlosh is a high-ranking officer in the Draconian military and thinks that being matched with a mate is a waste of time. He has bigger problems, namely dealing with eradicating the Mulgor. However, once his dragon sees Indigo’s picture, there is a countdown to complete the mating or go insane. There are no other options.

Opinion
Once Indigo and Vlosh get together, their story was nice. I felt like Indigo experienced a lot of trauma leading up to their meeting. Afterwards, she seemed to be level-headed and made good sense decisions.

Reading the easy relationship she had with her parents was emotionally awkward considering the fact that I knew from the blurb that they would die soon. I tried to imagine they died painlessly, but doubt that was the case.

Indigo was a strong woman, which was what her husband needed since he was the general. There was a lot of pressure on her to mate because the entire military operation was under his command. If he went crazy, that would have been bad for everyone. When it came down to the actual mating, I did not feel that she felt forced to do something she did not want to do.

I could tell that Vlosh was a no-nonsense type of guy, but had enough wherewithal to concede to his mate when need be. Who cares about aesthetics? Saying that he was blunt would be an understatement. He saw no need to sugarcoat his words, but that did not mean he didn’t care. It is good that Indigo had a strong personality, otherwise I don’t think their relationship would be as successful.

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
BUY. I liked Indigo and Vlosh individually and as a couple. Vlosh was a really considerate guy, even though he did not really think he had time for a relationship. Indigo had her stuff well enough together to be able to cope with tragedy and be open minded to entertain being an alien’s mate.

Marooned by Veronica Scott #scifiromance

Star Cruise: Marooned: (A Sectors SF Romance) – Veronica Scott

4heart

Synopsis

Simon (Red) and Meg work on a spaceship that takes wealthy people on intergalactic excursions. The plant Dantaralor is the next stop and should be a fairly standard excursion for the ship full of wealthy passengers.
The trip turns into a nightmare. The crew and passengers are left on the planet in an extremely hostile situation.

Opinion

I really loved this book. In the beginning, I thought I was going to be ambivalent towards the characters. Meg seemed to be too straitlaced for me, but then I realized she had to wear that attitude like armor. Red seemed like a cutie from the moment he was introduced.

Red already got points from being ex-military. All he did to get to know Meg just cemented to me that he was book boyfriend worthy.

I liked the way Meg and Red worked together to get out of danger. Meg was not a weak woman but was an equal. This was not your damsel-in-distress-waiting-for-her-knight type of book. They were a team.

The romance was quick but considering that they did not know if they would be alive the next day, I granted them leeway.

Should you buy? Yes! This book has nail biting action and suspense that will make you release the breath you did not know were holding when it’s all said and done. This was the first book that I read by Veronica Scott. It will not be the last. I enjoyed it thoroughly!
