Audiobook Review: Barbarian’s Prize (Ice Planet Barbarians, #6). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Barbarian’s Prize by Ruby Dixon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s hard being the most popular girl on the ice planet. The alien men are falling all over themselves to impress me in the hopes that I’ll take them to my furs. But they don’t know my secrets – none of them do. And they don’t realize that behind my smile, I just wish they’d go away. 

I don’t want any of them. I want someone else – someone with a gorgeous blue body, big horns, and the most intense gaze ever. He’s the only one that knows the truth. Maybe with him, I can work through my fears of the past….but I’m pretty sure he wants more than just friendship. 

He wants forever, and I’m not sure I can give it.

The heroine: Tiffany – she has PTSD from what happened to her on the alien spaceship before it crashed and killed all the aliens. In her nightmares she wakes up in a cage filled with dirty human females and gets taken out by an alien and taken to another room where terrible things were done to her. She lives in terror of resonance because of what happened to her. Though Tiffany is one of the most popular females and she is a hard worker.

The Hero(es): Salukh – he knows from the start that Tiffany is for him. She has four other Sa-Qhui males fighting for her affections, but he knows that even though resonance hasn’t hit for him, that Tiffany is his mate and Resonance will eventually catch up to what he knows.

The Story: Tiffany is afraid that she might eventually resonate with one of the males that is constantly coming up to her. She fears when that happens, she might be forced against her will like she was on the alien spaceship. The four guys start to really get on her nerves the way they constantly come up to her with offerings and gifts from their hunting trips, much more than she can use.

Tiffany feels differently about Salukh since he hangs back and doesn’t constantly bother her. He watches her and spends time with her when she is in the right mood. He talks to her and learns about her while the others just want something from her. She feels that Salukh is her friend and asks him to help her overcome her fears.

The book is told in dual points of view and using dual narration. Mason Lloyd and Hollie Jackson do the narration and do a great job as usual. I love how Mason does the stilted speech for the males. It sounds like they are just getting used to speaking English so it sounds more authentic.

The story is a good one and there is lots of romance in this one. Since Salukh is helping Tiffany learn to accept kisses and touches again, there is a ton of foreplay and steam in this book. The story is good, I liked the trip they take and how their story evolves.
