World building: 🌏🌍🌎🌏
Character development: 🥲😳😋😘
The heroine: Aylia – she is a Zonian warrior who, is not capable of mating with men of her species since she was a foundling. Aylia was charged with going on a mating quest. She kidnapped a male from one of the strongest races in order to impregnate her. Though she isn’t a true Zonian (as in Amazonian, a race of warrior females who only use men for procreation), that life is the only she has ever known.
The Hero: Jaro – Brother to Tren from Accidental Abduction. Jaro and Tren had been fighting for years because Jaro believed Tren slept with his woman. They had been in a competition to become the best mercenary in the Galaxy. Jaro was known as the scourge of the Galaxy. Now that Jaro finally admitted that his brother never did betray him but his former love was sleeping around with others, the brothers have made up.
The Story: Aylia finds Jaro at a live fight. His cousins tricked him into fighting a huge alien creature by telling him that the only one who has beat the creature in a fight was Tren. So she set her sights on him right away. Jaro couldn’t understand what his brother saw in the human woman Tren chose as a mate as Jaro knows humans as barbarians. However, when he finds himself tied up and at the mercy of a red headed human looking woman determined to mate with him, he changes his mind.
The book is told in both characters points of view via dual narration. Like the first book in this series, the narrators are J.F. Harding and Holly Chandler. I thought they were ok in the first book, though their voices are growing on me and I am liking them more in this book. I also liked this story and the characters better than the first book. It was quite steamy and I enjoyed the romance.
