World building: 🌏🌍🌎
Character development: 😚🙂😁
The heroine: Rachel – she found that her company was doing some very unethical things and she was about to tell the world, when she found that she was framed for being behind it all. She was sentenced to prison and her lawyer feared that she would be murdered in prison so she had no other choice than to become an interstellar bride and be transported off the planet.
The Heroes: Maxim, Ryston – Maxim is the governor of one of the sectors on the colony where all the people who have been formerly prisoner on hive ships are sent by their governments. Due to them being “Contaminated” with hive technology. Ryston is his second and was also a warrior from Prillon Prime.
The Story: After Maxim and Ryston successfully rescued Rachel from Prison, they were transported to the colony where they begin to get to know each other. They soon discover there is a mystery surrounding the death of a former navy seal from Earth who was somehow poisoned and died in front of them.
Rachel uses her skills as a medical researcher in order to try to get to the bottom of what it was that poisoned the Navy Seal whom also had hive technology integrated into his DNA. She needed to find the answer fast since Maxim was now showing similar symptoms as the Navy Seal.
This book was told in multiple points of view via dual narration where the female narrator did all the voices within the chapters told in Rachel’s point of view and the male narrators did all the voices in the chapters that were told in Maxim and Ryson’s points of view. The narration was done by Heather Firth, Jakobi Diem and Stephen Dexter who all did a great job and all of them had very pleasant voices.
The story was good, though not great. I liked that there was the mystery rather than just an alien smut fest, though there were plenty of intimate scenes. This book did set up the series going forward which I enjoyed. Though I don’t like the idea of the claiming ceremony that they have on the colony. I am not one for public sex.
