The Bickersons in space!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌏🌍🌎
Character development: 🥲😳😋
The heroine: Megan – she went on an ocean cruise with her boyfriend and ended up being left behind floating in the ocean. Megan thought she had zero chance of survival when she was lifted into the air and placed in an aquarium in a spaceship. She immediately took her situation in and did what she could to get out of the aquarium before it was sealed shut.
The Hero: Tren – an acquisitions specialist (wrangler and transporter of rare species from undeveloped galaxies). He used to be a mercenary, but merc’s didn’t tend to live long so he changed jobs. He was on earth to pick up some of the local ocean species when he ends up with a human woman who he has no use for.
The Story: From the moment Megan met the 7 foot tall, handsome purple alien, they fought like cats and dogs. Even before she got the translator in her ear, she stood up to Tren and frustrated him to no end. Though Tren planned on selling her at the first auction he came across he couldn’t deny that she intrigued him. He had heard that females from Earth were not sought after as slaves since they tended to cry a lot and their minds often broke easily.
The book is told in both characters points of view via dual narration. The narrators are J.F. Harding and Holly Chandler. They were ok as narrators, though not my favorites by far. Holly has a loud clear voice which actually matched the outspoken Megan quite well and J.F. did a fine job and has a pleasing if not remarkable voice.
Megan wasn’t very likable at first. I don’t know how some authors can make an outspoken and argumentative woman seem like a strong, independent woman and others make them just seem like a nag and a harpy. Megan seemed like the latter, but I was interested in the story. I like alien romance when they take place on spaceships and space stations.
