World building: 🌏🌍🌎🌏
Character development: 😠😚😁☺️
Narration Type: Duet Narration
The Hero: Kirov – an ambassador of Luxiria. He is the technical advisor to the prime leader. He is not happy to have to tell Vaxa’an (the prime leader) that the Luxirian crystal is missing from the capital. It is the only crystal large enough to power a ship all the way back to Earth to return the human females that want to go back to their planet.
The heroine: Lainey – she comes from a wealthy background and was a beautiful woman and a pianist who was loved by all until she was kidnapped by alien sex traffickers and then later rescued by the Luxirians. She wants only to get back to Earth, but is suspicious of the Luxirians motives when the women are sequestered away from the majority of the Luxirians.
The Story: Kirov tells Vaxa’an that the reason the crystal was stolen was because the Luxirian males heard that the human women can awaken their fated mating instinct and they don’t want the women to return to Earth. They are also distressed the women have been kept away from the men in order to protect them from awakening the instinct in men so they have their choice to return home. Though Kirov tells Vaxa’an that if he happens to see a female that awakens his instinct, he won’t let anything come between them.
Lainey thinks something is fishy when she hears about other human females wanted to stay with their “mates” and she thinks they are being jailed and the whole mating instinct story as well as the fact the crystal has been stolen is a load of bull a is determined to prove it. When Kirov sees beautiful Lainey spying on him in a private moment his instinct awakens. he does everything he can to win her over so she stays on Luxiria with him rather than return to Earth after the crystal is found.
This book was told in dual points of view via duet narration, and was narrated by Sierra Grace and Tristan Josiah like the rest of this series. I am liking this series, though it is not all that different than many other alien romance stories. The whole thing with the plague and a race that needs females to mate with and have babies with to continue their race has been done in the majority of alien romance books. Though it is a good trope and I don’t mind reading it over and over. I also can’t resist anything done in duet narration. I love it when the female narrator doesn’t have to do male voices and vice versa.
I like that Kirov is a technology guy, and that he creates different things for Lainey like a little robotic sun shade and he makes a computer tablet for one of the other women to draw on. Though I still think it odd that in alien romance, none of the other societies, whether they are technologically advanced or not, have anything similar to television, even when they have better computers and communicators. I would think that would be something that naturally would evolve in more civilizations than just ours.
