Audiobook Review: Barbarian’s Bride (Ice Planet Barbarians, #20). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Barbarian’s Bride by Ruby Dixon

My rating: 4 of 5 star

Nora says she’s happy.

Dagesh isn’t so sure. He loves his pretty human mate and wants nothing more than to bring a smile to her face…so she’ll go running into his arms. When he asks the tribe what she’s missing, someone suggests a wedding.

All right, then. He’ll throw the best barbarian wedding ever.

So how does Nora tell her determined, thoughtful mate that what she wanted wasn’t a wedding…but something a little different in bed?

The heroine: Nora – the book begins with Nora being pregnant on the ice planet. She and Mate already have twin girls and she is getting to the point where she is sick and tired of being ungainly and uncomfortable.

The Hero: Dagesh – He is the mate of Nora who is a human woman. He loves her and their children and does his best to help her as she is so tired and unable to do much while she is so heavily pregnant.

The Story: One night while putting the girls to bed, Dagash is asked to tell them the story of how he and Nora first resonated so he starts to tell them the story of how they met. While listening, Nora thinks back on that time and fills in the blanks that Dagesh leaves with all the parts of their story that are too intimate and scandalous to tell their children.

I almost turned this audiobook off when it started out with Nora being pregnant and already having two children. I didn’t want to hear a story of two people already in a lasting relationship, but I am glad I kept listening because I like the story of two people meeting. This one was good because Dagesh resonated to Nora when they first met outside the crash site. Of course, she hadn’t gotten her Khui yet and was not ready for a mate. She is also into BDSM so that was different than many of the other books.

Vektal gives Dagash advice to go slow and be very gentle with his mate, which is not at all what Nora wants in a man. I liked the fact that Nora didn’t fight the resonance. She was all for it and went away with Dagash right away. The problems they had were in communication with regards to mating.

The book was told in both characters points of view and the audiobook was done in dual narration. The narration was done by Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd who have done most of this series and I like both of these narrators quite a bit.
