Loved this book!
Loved this book! Great world-building, reads really easy, and a super-hot romance. Really good plot too, very unusual. Reminded me of 50 Shades b/c the hero seems very dominant/controlling and the heroine is young & inexperienced. It's not BDSM, but it has that feel to it, probably because of some of the bedroom scenes and the overall relationship dynamics. At times I hated the hero and other times I absolutely loved him. I didn't know if he was good or bad and that made for a very compelling read. It looks like there will be a sequel, although the main conflict gets resolved in the end of the book. I can't wait for book 2 to come out! This was a very well written book, I didn't find any errors at all. Highly recommend.
Sexy And Intriguing
This book was a treat. For better or worse, it left little to the imagination when it came to the many erotic scenes that were dispersed through out the book. The plot moved along at a leisurely pace ensuring a complete picture. I literally felt like I was there, as Mia (main character) ate, I saw, smelled and tasted the delicious meals with her, as Mia was intimate with her beautiful lover, I felt like I was there with her, all my senses were completely engaged. The alien element was subtle because of how similar the alien civilization that was introduced is to ours. However, the amount of sci fi element in this book was satisfying, in this case, less is more applies. There's so much to look forward to, I cannot wait to get my eyes on the next book!
Fantastic adult read!
Welcome to a new Earth! A place where the Krinar have taken residence right along with the humans. A place where these ''aliens'' have taken on Earth as theirs. With their rules and their way of life. If you are lucky you may never encounter a Krinar and you can live in peace. This isn't the case for Mia Stalis. She was minding her own business while sitting on a park bench one day when Korum took notice of her. His interest in her is what turned her world upside down. With no choice but to follow along with all Korum has to say will she make the ultimate decision to help the human race on taking back their planet or has she fallen too deep with Korum? Mia Stalis is your young, naive woan in college. She still has strong attachments to her family and friends. When she comes across a strong, domineering, sometimes callous 'K' (Krinar are called K's) she has no experience in how to save herself from the world she's about to fall under. Tehre were times I wanted to scream at Mia for some her choices, but the author did such an amazing job in describing the situation as a ''NO WAY OUT'' situation. Makes you feel bad for Mia. Makes you dislike Korum. But it's really hard when the tenderness and love starts showing through between the two. It's almost close to a BDSM book where he is the dominant and she is the submissive. he's every definition of a dominant. Hard headed, possessive, bossy, and most times callous. What Korum wants, Korum gets. I can't say I like him fully. I can say I like the character and the way he was written. We have a powerful enemy that falls in love with our leading lady and we get very confliceted with our feelings for Mia...we stand behind her, we want to smack her, we root for her, we want her to blow up too. Lol. No really I love Mia. It's just that amazing way an author can write that rises all these emotions out of you. Anna Zaires has wrote a book that transfers emotion right into the reader from page to page. The sexual scenes in here are not for the weak. There is pain, passion, submission, domination, strong loss. I think I cringed every time. It was hard to like him as a person. As a villain, well that's a whole other story! He's a fantastically written ''villain.'' I think I secretly love him. I know I love to hate him. I know I love Anna Zaires for writing this story! i really, really want the sequel already! i love to read a book with a dark, edgy side. It's not always roses and sunshine. This whole idea has originality and it's refreshing to get a new vision on an ''alien'' take over! Awe-some job on creativity and imagination! If you enjoy paranormal romance with a big touch in the Sci-fi this book is for you! i give this book my thumbs up!
