C791 (Cyborgs: More Than Machines #1) by Eve Langlais

13458280

Machines aren’t supposed to feel, but this cyborg can’t help falling in love.

Assigned as a specimen collector for a captured cyborg, Chloe is intrigued by the machine disguised as a man. Kidnapped during his daring escape, he shows her that despite the chip in his brain, his humanity is not completely lost.

Formerly known as unit X109GI, Joe is on a quest to discover his origin. While he doesn’t find the answers he’s looking for, he does discover that affection isn’t just for humans. But when it comes to a battle between logic and love, which side will the cybernetic organism—once a man—choose?

Evaluating his feelings will have to wait though because the military isn’t done with Joe. But their threats against him pale in comparison before the shocking discovery of project C791, the revelation of which stuns the rebel cyborgs—and ignites a fury for vengeance.

I read this book very quickly. There’s only 161 pages so it’s pretty short but it’s packed full. This book, albeit short, had a great plot line, interesting characters and had some unexpected twists and turns. Continue reading

Captive (Entwined Fates #1) by Trista Ann Michaels


Aliens? Attacking Earth?

Her home is being destroyed. Her friends killed. Her freedom taken away. Escape from the man or alien responsible is the only choice she has but deep down, it’s the last thing Mikayla truly wants and she hates herself for it. Falling in love with her captor is not an option, despite how seductive he is. He might get her body, but she refuses to give him what he truly wanted…her soul.

How the hell has Sidious been talked into this and more importantly, how the hell is he going to get out of it?

The last thing he needs while working as a mole for the rebel forces is another complication, no matter how enticing a package. But the second Mikayla opens her sarcastic mouth, he can’t resist putting her in her place. Seducing her’s going be the most fun he’s had in years. Unfortunately, someone is onto his secret and time is running out…for both Sidious and his captive.

Even though I wasn’t in love with this book I did enjoy it. This is one of those books that you can’t necessarily put your finger on why you didn’t love it because there was nothing that stood out that was horrible.  Continue reading

Casey’s Warriors (Bondmates #1) by Ann Mayburn

Lorn Adar has searched more than a lifetime to find his bondmate—the one woman he was born to love and the only woman who can save him from the approaching madness that threatens all unbonded males of his race. When a wormhole opens from his galaxy to Earth and the women who could hold their future, Lorn will do all in his power to not only find his mate, but show her a Universe she never knew existed.

Casey Westfall’s normal life changed forever when she finds the sexy leather clad man on her doorstep. One innocent kiss leads to an adventure that will span worlds and Casey will have to choose between the man who is the other half of her soul and never seeing her family or her world again. To complicate matters Kadothians live in polyamerous family units and Lorn will have to convince his Earth bride to accept not only his love, but the love of his best friend and brothers in arms or risk the chance of losing them to either the madness or the Hive—the race of sociopathic women bent on destroying and enslaving everything in their path, but Casey can’t see loving more than one man as being anything other than a sin. Lorn will have to teach his bride that she was created for both of them just as they were created only for her.

In a Universe where all is possible, the battle to protect not only his people, but his heart rests on the soul of a human woman who must face the unknown and take a leap of faith that could save or destroy them all.

My Little Obsession With Laurann Dohner’s Books

I have been on a Laurann Dohner binge. I’m not even kidding you guys. I’m sure it’s not healthy to binge this many books by one author in such a short amount of time. I’ve just been reading one book after another so fast that I don’t even have time to write about how amazing they are. I just rush to get my hands on the next book in the series because I already know I’m going to love it.

Torkel’s Chosen (A World Beyond #1) by Michelle Howard

24335191

Goodreads Summary:
What would you do if Earth didn’t have enough men?
Would you take a chance and leave the only world you knew behind?

This is the decision Faith Reid faces. Placing all her hope in a new government program, she seizes the opportunity that offers a chance for the women of Earth to find love among the stars, on a world beyond the one they know.

How many times can one man risk rejection?
Would you give up on your dreams?

Torkel Alonson has had enough of being ignored and looked over by females on his adopted home world of Enotia. His pride has suffered and he must accept the painful truth. Females will never choose a male with his evil lineage despite his honorable service to his government’s military.

Can two people looking for the same thing find not just what they want but what they need in one another?
****

Honestly disappointed in this book. When it started out I was really excited. I loved the premise that there was a surplus of women on Earth due to a illness that targeted men. I thought that was so unique especially since usually books like these are about alien planets that have more males than females. The character intrigued me at first I thought she was cool and didn’t have any major problems with her. That is until her betrayal. I’m not going to go too much into it since I don’t want to ruin it for anyone who is hoping to read this story but I just can’t get over it.  Continue reading

Rush (Breathless #1) by Maya Banks

16033902

I can’t be the only one that recently saw Fifty Shades Darker and craved a book similar to it. I haven’t read a BDSM book in forever. If you’ve been following my posts you’ll know that I’ve lately been obsessed with aliens and any story that relates to space and other worlds. Even amidst my current obsession, once I saw the new 50 Shades movie I had to pick up a similar book and dive back into this world.  Continue reading

Dragon Lords of Valdier (Books 1-4) by S.E. Smith



Lately I’ve really gotten into alien books where human women are taken from Earth to live on another planet. It’s so much fun to read about a whole new universe and creatures. This is the second series I’ve read where a group of girls are taken at the same time and each book does this rewind thing and I’m not sure how much I like it.


If you aren’t sure what I’m talking about, (which I wouldn’t be surprised if you didn’t because I’m super vague) basically what I’m referring to is when a group of women are taken or arrive on the foreign planet all at the same time. The first book follows one women through different events that sometimes include the other girls. The second book rewinds to the arrival of all the girls (sometimes a little before to tell how she came about to be in that situation) but this time from a different girls point of view and it continues. Most of the time the “big events” the reader already knows either what’s going to happen or what happens after because of the previous books. The third book, you guessed it, rewinds again to the arrival to tell the story through another woman’s eyes.

I’ve only read up to half of the fourth book of this series (I believe there are 7?) and I like the women in these series because they are all very likable and badass and trust me when I say I don’t even know where to begin when it comes to the males in this book. SMOKING HOT! Let’s just say I envy the girls in this series.

Basically, these 5 women are taken from Earth (1 not so much taken but you’ll see) and aren’t too happy about their new living arrangements. After traveling through space for 2 weeks they arrive on Valdier, a planet that over the centuries have had a significant decline in female births. Each woman has a crazy past and their own unique personality.

I feel like I would’ve really really loved this series if it didn’t keep rewinding, because I feel like nothing major happens without it being revealed in a previous book (because it all follows the same timeline). However, don’t let that deter you from reading this series because there are things you find out about each individual woman that the other books don’t. Also, each male I would say are all different from one another too which kept things interesting.

If you have already read this series and have loved it then I suggest reading the Dragon Lords by Michelle M. Pillow. Didn’t realize until now that they basically have the same title lol! This one is a bit different because the women aren’t taken they actually signed up to become brides since this planet basically has no female births. I really liked this series but it has the similar layout of the Dragon Lords of Valdier with the whole rewind thing.
