    Ashley Jacobson s life changes the day aliens from the planet Kaldar land on Earth They have agreed to share their advanced technology and medical advancements with Earth in exchange for the opportunity to acquire mates Their only requirement for this is that all unmarried females between the age of 18 35 are mandated to register as potential true mates for the warriors within the next thirty days After that time the warriors will be free to court the women Failure to comply will result in Ashley Jacobson s life changes the day aliens from the planet Kaldar land on Earth They have agreed to share their advanced technology and medical advancements with Earth in exchange for the opportunity to acquire mates Their only requirement for this is that all unmarried females between the age of 18 35 are mandated to register as potential true mates for the warriors within the next thirty days After that time the warriors will be free to court the women Failure to comply will result in the aliens taking decisive action Not believing the garbage being spouted by the Kaldarhns spokesman Karac, Ashley and her family hatch a plan for her to disappear and evade landing up on the registry Little does Ashley, and the other females who refuse to comply realize, that the Kaldarhns are the most ruthless and feared warriors in the Universe but are facing extinction unless they find their one and only mate to complete them and repopulate their planet Ashley can run but the chase has begun and Karac hasat stake then the other warriors to find and claim Ashley for his own This was a sweet alien invasion read that fits into the Mars Needs Earth Women romance category It s another example of excellent taste when aliens from across the Universe realize that Earth has the best quality in women hehehe.This book sets the world building for the series to take off for many installments By that I mean Darrok, Calzen, and my own personal favorite Merrik are in the wings waiting for their own mates which I m happy about as this series does have potential.As for the main characters themselves Individually each character worked and gave me a good feel for their different personalities But Together they blurred and I really didn t get any chemistry that supported the truemate premise The mix of snark and affection between the two was a big positive but the transition to solidifying their relationship not so much Maybe the scene cuts to black when the two had intimate moments could have been fleshed out a littleBEFORE the scene cut could have helped.As for my issues Probably the fact that there wasn t enough depth in the actual world building itself was a biggie Supposedly aliens appear and agree to share their advanced technology in exchange for brides RIGHT The world is such where a verbal assurance will have our government requiring women to comply with something like this Not Heck, Congress would be jumping down the President s throat regardless of any executive order I d think holding up the mandate for years and years And I had an issue with the visible consequence when their mating actually occurred which is spoiler info so I can t go into it That definitely neededfleshing out in the explanation of who what when why for me to have understood that whole thing I also was disappointed in a key climatic ending scene that was too rushed and condensed for me Almost seemed like an add on scene to give the reader one last adrenaline exciting moment before the HEA ending.Overall I did appreciate the overall story line though it was predictable for the most part This is a book series for fans of all ages who enjoy the contemporary alien abduction of Earth women premise The fairy tale fantasy romance between Ashley and Karac will definitely leave you with that ahhhhh feeling.

    For an unknown reason the humanoid race from Kaldarhns suffer very low birthrates of females This is one problem the Kaldarhns have Complicating their low birthrate is that children can only be produced from a truemate union This union is with a genetically compatible partner with which a Kaldarhn male will mate for life Surprise, out of seven galaxies the warrior race of the Kaldharhns rule yes, rule , Earth is the only planet they found genetically compatible women Making agreements wi For an unknown reason the humanoid race from Kaldarhns suffer very low birthrates of females This is one problem the Kaldarhns have Complicating their low birthrate is that children can only be produced from a truemate union This union is with a genetically compatible partner with which a Kaldarhn male will mate for life Surprise, out of seven galaxies the warrior race of the Kaldharhns rule yes, rule , Earth is the only planet they found genetically compatible women Making agreements with the governments of earth in exchange for technology, the Kaldarhns require that all unattached females between the age of 18 and 35 register with a database The warrior will search the database for their truemate which they will magically recognize on sight Once a truemate is identified she literally has no choice as to whether to mate with him or not But these guys are so hunky and alpha, the women eventually, even if stubborn, relent, melting into their alpha arms This is an especially difficult trope to write Aside the forced mating aspect, which is always creepy in my book, juxtaposing Earth culture and an alien culture is difficult to make realistic With this trope there is nearly always declarations on how the alien culture is superior or is made to feel fairy tale like This book is no exception The only realistic part was the MC s decision to try to hide to avoid registering After Karac shows up everything sweeps into tropeland, from Karac s single minded pursuit of Ashley, and over the top jealousy, to her government sanctioned abduction, to in short order a month falling in love with Karac and mating with him Karac is one dimensional Ashley a little less so, but still has those extremes of decision making we ve come to expect of these types of books I will hide, oops, he found me, I guess I have choice but to go with him Oh, even though he s taken me away from everyone I ve ever known, and I might not ever see my family again, I m falling in love with him It was difficult to get a sense of a real love relationship here, as their main form of communication was sarcastic jibes, and Ashley s anger with being confronted by omissions of information from her mate.If you ve only read a couple of these types of books it is an OK afternoon romp, but stacked against the body of these types of books it stands as average for the most part, boring for the rest

    When Earth is invaded by aliens, all woman between a certain age range who aren t married are required to register so that all warriors are able to search the list for their true mate If a female is found the aliens tells the world that they are then given a choice to stay or go wight their mate But when Ashley hears about this she wants nothing to do with it With the help of her family Ashley disappears and removes all traces of herself Earth was also told that the woman had a deadline to r When Earth is invaded by aliens, all woman between a certain age range who aren t married are required to register so that all warriors are able to search the list for their true mate If a female is found the aliens tells the world that they are then given a choice to stay or go wight their mate But when Ashley hears about this she wants nothing to do with it With the help of her family Ashley disappears and removes all traces of herself Earth was also told that the woman had a deadline to register, but no one knows or wanted to find out what happened if the deadline passed without the woman registering.Karac knows his true mate is at earth he just has to find her His planet is dying and they have hope that many true mates will be found on earth When the deadline comes and goes and only 15% of the eligible woman have registered Karac is at a loss for what to do When one of the warriors comes across another method of tracking females Then Karac finally see s his true mate, now all he has to do is find her.Karac does all he can to find Ashley his true mate, and when he gets a lead he finally comes face to face with Ashley But Ashley has no plans to go with Karac till she finds out the cost of refusing to register Now Karac will do anything to convince her that she is meant to be with him, and though Ashley wants to deny it there is a connection that she can t explain and the longer they spend together the stronger the bond grows But all is not well when an enemy of Karac s people resurfaces with plans of their own.This was a nice story but it was almost too nice, and too cookie cutter, and I kept waiting forto happen It felt like with the exception of Ashley and Karac getting together and Ashley getting over her fear and anger it took too long to get to anything else in the book One of my favorite things about alien PR is the fierceness of the aliens and while Karac wasn t tame I was hoping for .I did enjoy reading about the relationship Ashley and Karac had and watching it develop I just would have likedof a conflict besides getting Ashley over the registry and the aliens I don t want to sound negative because this was a nice story, and i completely believed that Karac loved and wanted Ashley over everyone else and that he was a possessive hero With the exceptions of some editing issues minimal this was a really nice story This is the first time I have read anything from this author and I am really interested to see how this series pans out and to see where it goes and the growth of this series Overall this was a nice quick read

    For a first book it was pretty good The old alien race needs earth females scenario is a favourite of mine and I enjoyed the part where Ashley evades the aliens for 6 months.What I would of liked to see washumour andsex PG13 would be fine, doesn t need to be XXX rated, but some would be better than the none that we got Also there wasn t enough action to prove these guys are the macho warriors we are told they are.Looking forward to the next book.

    2.5 disappointing starsThis story had potential but failed to touch me in any way I never warmed up to Ashley and the ONLY sex scene was cut to black

    Pretty bad book in the Alien Abduction Romance Genre I do have some positives to mention but those don t really make the story any better and I d never recommend this book to anyone else despite being a free read on Kindle Unlimited Program.Quick Rundown Alien race comes to Earth and makes deal with government for chicks as they need babies, asap Our Chick gets the news and as she s a candidate, she books ass home, sells her assets and goes into hiding Alien Prince Ruler Dude is heading up t Pretty bad book in the Alien Abduction Romance Genre I do have some positives to mention but those don t really make the story any better and I d never recommend this book to anyone else despite being a free read on Kindle Unlimited Program.Quick Rundown Alien race comes to Earth and makes deal with government for chicks as they need babies, asap Our Chick gets the news and as she s a candidate, she books ass home, sells her assets and goes into hiding Alien Prince Ruler Dude is heading up this project and just knows that his true mate is here but she hides herself good so it takes quite a few months Of course, she gets caught or we d have no story and pretty much just rolls over Lots of lameness ensues End of.Characterization Pretty one dimensional If there wasto the plot, I could have looked past this a littleI did have a huge problem with the fact that this beautiful, successful, fairly outgoing young woman has made it to 23 without ever being kissed Holding hands and cuddling is about as far she s willing to go in life so this readslike Christian Romance which I particularly abhor but respect others likes dislikes despite religion and god never actually being mentioned I wouldn t even categorize this as Young Adult It slike early tween Secondary characters were fine enough There s a Big Bad but I don t even remember any of that conflict soyeah.Plot It starts off good and like other reviewers have mentioned, her hiding was well thought out and realistic but that was about it I adore alien romance erotica but just to get a kiss took like forever and while they eventually had sex, it was fade to black after a kiss not even a boob grab, let alone the word sex And again, once the Dude got her, they had no conflict together she just kinda folded And without muchfrom a Big Bad, the majority of the plot was just not there Ending was lame but I was glad it ended.Writing This is why this gets 2 stars instead of 1 The writing was not bad The dialogue felt pretty natural Little to no grammar errors or editing issues The author has potential if she could inject somethinginteresting into her books.Overall I wouldn t want anyone to waste their time on this one There was a set up for a future book with 2 of the characters and while I m a little intrigued by their story, I might buy it if it s free Kindle Unlimited but if it turns out to be as lame as this one, I might skim or just trash it to spend my time in a better fashion Spuffed

    Ok so I read the synopsis and it looked really interesting which is why it got 2 stars However in execution this book drove me a little crazy I got really excited that Ashley wasn t just going to roll over and register, I thought ok here is a strong main character However I quickly learned that she wasn t very strong after all She folded before anything even happened, sarcastic comments don t count as standing up for yourself Also her family was ridiculous, if I disappeared in the middle o Ok so I read the synopsis and it looked really interesting which is why it got 2 stars However in execution this book drove me a little crazy I got really excited that Ashley wasn t just going to roll over and register, I thought ok here is a strong main character However I quickly learned that she wasn t very strong after all She folded before anything even happened, sarcastic comments don t count as standing up for yourself Also her family was ridiculous, if I disappeared in the middle of the night because a alien kidnapped me, they wouldn t be sitting by acting like everything was just hunky dory and my mom wouldn t be excited that the alien seemed to be sweet and is trying to date me This isn t the first book like this that I ve read but this is the weakest character I ve read in this kind of story and I rarely write reviews, but I couldn t stand how much of a pushover Ashley ended up being and for other people who read the synopsis and think they will be getting a strong female lead you ve been warned

    Wonderful first book I read this book without stopping this afternoon That s how good it was So happy to find a book based on a familiar theme, alien warriors kidnap earth women for brides except the story was not just a frame wrapped around page after page of sex The story was great as was the alien world building Wonderful hero and heroine and supporting characters Must say the earth government response of readily agreeing to basically trade marriage aged women for alien tech was not su Wonderful first book I read this book without stopping this afternoon That s how good it was So happy to find a book based on a familiar theme, alien warriors kidnap earth women for brides except the story was not just a frame wrapped around page after page of sex The story was great as was the alien world building Wonderful hero and heroine and supporting characters Must say the earth government response of readily agreeing to basically trade marriage aged women for alien tech was not surprising However, anyone who likes space operas will love this book Certainly hope this is the start of a series Great author, so please don t stop writing
