Book Basics Genre Paranormal Erotica Romance Series 1st in the seriesLove triangle view spoiler No hide spoiler Cheating view spoiler No hide spoiler HEA view spoiler Yes hide spoiler Would I read by this author or in this series yesRating 4 stars Review This did not start out good for me It felt a bit confused and almost like it was going to take itself far too seriously, just the writing and the way things were described It took me a good 10% or so to get used to the authors voice.However I t [...]
Got to about 30% then skipped to the end Lost interest in this when I realised it was menage and there were three male interests for the silly heroine Much has been made of this being like Last Hour Of Gann It s not It is best labeled as Futuristic Erotica.
This book came to my attention via Twitter where it was lauded for its world building Given the source of the praise, Dear Author, who gave me The Last Hour of Gann, I went for a sample hey I am learning.The beginning was very much the usual fare in this niche of romance landia, and please don t call it Sci Fi the same way PNR is not UF, above all at the two limits of the range But I was in the mood for it and went on DA was right, there s good world building, for an erotic romance But this book [...]
2nd edition shelved for book challenge purposes for re reads of books within the same year Full review here review show
This is not in any way comparable to R Lee Smith s work At all.
Lumen Young is taken from Earth by slave traders, treated abominably and then thrown into the pit to be the prize to mightiest warrior That would be Venomous One, or Venom, to his friends Ok, just Lumen And then a whole of action and craziness happens And romance Multiple times It s hard to explain.In the interests of keeping this as spoiler free as possible, I m going to keep the next section under spoiler tags If you don t want to be spoiled at all, skip to the Bottom Line.The Good, The Bad an [...]
Trigger warnings graphic descriptions of rape, rape apologism, sexual coercion, rape culture, sexual violence, sexual slavery, violence against womenI was really excited about this book because many who liked The Last Hour of Gann loved this one too.This isn t a bad book when it comes to writing, plot, and worldbuilding, but it was way too much too much drama, and not feasible things, every time they sat down someone was abducting and about to rape Lumen too much of Lumen doing stupid things and [...]
I m a little concerned because did not finish is one of the top shelvings for this book, but OMG how I desperately do I want to read this R Lee Smith got me super interested in alien romance novels, and this one sounds super interesting.
Well I thought this would be a typical if longer mars needs woman type, I finished this at 3am Lots of twists and turns, no insta love no insta acceptance a struggle all the way but with the best of intentions, highly enjoyable read I get the lingering impression I have read something similar re the council twist towards the end but I read a LOT of the type of genre but I enjoyed the way this book was written, the world building, the genuine LOL moments.
Okay this one was a very nice suprise.I am glad that I took the chance of reading it.After Lumen was abducted from Earth she ends up in an arena where aliensare going to fight for her I know its sounds familiar just keep reading its get better Here is where Venomous becomes male R Vek after he finds his R Na sort of mate I need I need I need.Fight for her.I shall fight without end Never ending The devotion to her is never ending.Fangs aching Muscles swelling Gold glinting Hearts beating Mine to [...]
Abducted from Earth, abused and extensively experimented on, and finally striped naked and thrown into a pit and offered as a prize to the strongest of gladiators, Lumen Young is ready to die on the slaving planet until the victor, a scaly four armed alien having twin rows of fanged teeth and a forked tongue is victorious and carts her off to his lair His intent is clear What s not is what s to become of her after He Venomous One is turned off by the ugly female offered up as a prize but for tho [...]
I tried to read this when it first came out but OMG Big Triggers Rape, Abuse, Horrible Aliens.just awful And I decided to give this another chance I am so glad I did because this one really bothered me This was extremely hard to read even the second time.but I stuck w it and I fell in love with Venomous He was brave, and alpha, and wonderfulr a really scary alien And what Lumen went through is just horrific And sad and scary But this does have an HEAd than one sexy alien to love I am glad I gav [...]
Wow, I really enjoyed this one I am really looking forward to getting Beowyn s story Fingers crossed that it won t be long in coming Review to come.
2 2.5 starsI loved the space opera elements The dialogue was too often silly for my tastes It was hard to take the characters seriously then, they d have an emotional moment and I d keep reading The mating between Venomous One and Lumen could be a trigger for readers who abhor non con view spoiler It s his mating custom, and she s from Earth The rape is addressed hide spoiler I almost DNF d at the superficial way the hero and hero progressed from this point until a life threatening moment in the [...]
Very good read Very erotic at the beginning then slow down so we actually have a real story and a very well built world, actually worlds It was original, full of very deep and unique characters and species that I took great pleasure in learning about Venom and Lumen were really sweet together, specially after you know everything they went through I liked Fiercely a bit less but totally loved Cobra I would very much enjoy reading Wyn s story, the last epilogue was just hilarious Please write his [...]
Several weeks after I read this, I m still thinking of it It s not the most perfect book, or the best of stories, but the world building the author did is truly unique What I appreciated was that she went to lengths to make the aliens actually alien They look different, have a different culture, different values, different gestures and language and emotions and expectations It s not like replica humans set in space, it s aliens, who think the heroine a human is an alien to them There was a lot t [...]
This was a surprisingly good book for something that I just randomly picked up on a whim Alien books are either really good for me, or really bad, there doesn t seem to be any inbetween lol But I really liked this one, the writing was really good, the characters were great and the world building was easy to follow, which is probably the most important part of an alien book If you throw too much at the readers right from start it can get it hard to follow but I thought this book did a good job of [...]
It s a bit hard to get into at first But then it was hard to put down Can only recommend Great read A solid book that would take a whole weekend to read Absolutely loved it
I ve got around to reading it I loved Fiercely, Venomous and Cobra but I could do without Lumen She was, how should I say Needy, yes thats it I liked that she wanted to be independent But mostly she was independently needy I don t know how to describe it I liked her she was funny but I feel as though she lack that umf to be considered a survivor I mean she had to have survived being stolen from earth and sold Getting to know her through out the story I m just not seeing how someone almost feeble [...]
3.5 starsI wanted to like this one Many obviously do I think the only reason I didn t give this a 4 was because I only liked one of her three men And the reader doesn t really get to know that one as well since he s the last of her mates.I will definitely be looking for the next in this series as it seems really promising.Lumen Young is a human women kidnapped by alien slavers She is sold to the L Odo Lumen is treated cruelly by the L Odo They vivisect her, heal her and abuse her repeatedly She [...]
Do you know the evening I love the most are Lounging round in my most comfortable threadbare pyjamas, which are hanging on by a wing and a prayer, wrapped in a warm blanket cos the jammies have gone past the point of retaining heat, what with all the holes and all with chocolate in one hand and my book in the other To make this a perfect evening, the chocolate needs to involve peanut butter or salted caramel and the book needs to be one of my favourite authors new releases or a really cheesy ove [...]
This is a massively uneven book The first 10 pages might be the worst I have read in a long time Notice though I gave it 4 stars overall This is my first Fletcher book and I tend to be generous with new to me authors and there were also glorious moments in the book that make it a romance I am likely to reread and I can t wait for the next book in the series Claws tapping The prologue is an ill advised stream of consciousness and badly done It is like watching a chronic drunk take another drink Y [...]
Absolutely awesome Please write book 2 As you can tell, I loved this book I never really leave reviews, but I wanted to beg Ms Fletcher to write book 2 of this series Plus, I had to share that this book made me laugh, grin, cry, and cheer It also made me hot The characters develop within the plot so naturally, that the reader becomes truly invested in the plot to the point that emotions were tugged all over the place and I grew to absolutely love the main characters as if my own life was wrapped [...]
This was a really good erotic scifi book Similar to The Last Hour of Gann and almost as long , but not as brutal Also similar to Jaid Black s series 4289 series, but less silly.The multiple culture clashes are handled well Language and customs are misunderstood with both serious and humorous implications The writing style is slightly off with oddly formed sentences, but the alternating perspectives are handled properly The plot is a bit of a shaggy dog tale, jumping from one disaster to another [...]
This book was recommended to me ages ago and I have had the book for ages and I have only just now gotten around to reading it.The leading lady is black woman and her name is Lumen and she has been abducted and is enslaved by aliens One of the reasons it has taken me so long to read this book and why I don t tend to read books like these, is because I do have much of an imagination I find it very difficult to imagine what the author is describing when she talks about the planets and the aliens t [...]
This was a fabulous read I couldn t put it down Great story building and introduction of alien cultures Not a huge fan of lizard snake like leading males, but this worked REALLY well Lumen Young a twenty something black woman from the UK who starts off weak and traumatized by a vicious aliens abduction finds a protector and true mate among the nightmare like aliens of a slave mining colony In this book you are pulled in as you witness how Lumen is constantly on a roller coaster adventure across [...]
3.5 starsI took some off the rating because of so many typos, and a couple of times the wrong person s name was used Also, I am not a big fan of unpronouncable names, throws off the rhythm, so I just had to start reading the Varak guys as Bowen and Erik, which sounds ridiculous for space aliens, but the Ra guys had pronouncable names, so why not I liked the humor Without it, this would have been a dreary read due to the length of the book This book has a little bit of everything and it was than [...]
Great story I thought at first it would be quite like the other stories kind of alien meet human female and bang But no, that was a great story I loved how Venomous protect Lumen, even if they don t understand each other at first We can see they love each other and as the story goes on Can t wait to have the next book of this serie
I have to say this was so not what I expected I expected hot alien smut and at first it followed my preconceived notions I was a bit perplexed as to why the novel is so long, I mean most of this type of books end soon after the slave and his woman escape the slavers and return to his homeworld They are short with little to no plot and most of the scenes are prolonged sexual encounters But surprise, surprise Venomous actually had a plot beyond alien gets human and they have hot sex Sure there was [...]
This has to be the weirdest book I ve ever read, but I couldn t put it downLOL Lumen was so feisty and a fighter The internally conversations she would have with herself were hilarious I liked that the aliens were actually aliens and not humanlike, because that s how I envision aliens would look like It s so funny how every male she would encounter first thought she was unattractive and ended up falling in love with her.
