World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎🌏
Character development: 😠🙃😍😘🥰
Narration Type: Dual Narration
The heroine: Gemma – She was a former pageant girl, stolen from Earth by her own government to be traded for alien tech, and ended up on an alien prison planet. Though she was rescued by a race called the Voxeran warriors and brought the women to their village on the planet. But just as she was getting used to life on the settlement, she was taken captive by raiders along with the Voxeran called Kzuri.
The Hero: Kzuri – When the raiders attacked, he rushed to Gemma’s defense and ended up being taking captive along with her to be sold in an auction. He is a fierce warrior, but mysterious and quiet. He finds it difficult to talk, ever since he was a child, that is why he doesn’t talk much, he has a bit of a stutter when he says more than a few words. He wakes after being knocked out and taken captive, having been beaten and he sees that Gemma was taken captive with him and he swears he will protect her.
The Story: Gemma feels that Kzuri is her only lifeline after the pig-faced raiders take them hostage on hover bikes. While Kzuri is determined to save them both. Though he is wounded and must play along with the captors. They travel by bike for days. When one of the pig men starts to attack Gemma, Kzuri attacks and saves her, but they don’t get away.
It isn’t long before Kzuri feels the mate bond with Gemma. I really liked Kzuri, and I think that his stutter is so cute. I like that he is a quiet guy. Their journey is a bit different than any I have read before in alien romance and it is certainly a difference from the first books in this series. I liked the story quite a bit and the world building and character development were both on point.
The book is told in dual points of view via dual narration and was narrated by Karla Serrato and C.J. Grey. C.J. has a deep voice and talks at a great cadence for an alien romance, especially for one like Kzuri who doesn’t talk much. Karla has a soft yet feminine sounding voice which is also pleasant.
