#scifithriller #scifiromance #powerexchange

Adult/18+ read

I am a member of a lot of different Facebook groups and this author came highly recommended by a fellow reader. I can’t for the life of me remember which of the many groups her recommendation was in, but if by any chance you are that person and you just happen to be reading this post THANK YOU SO MUCH! I absolutely LOVED this book and have now found a new author I can add to my list of ‘must reads’  – her backlist looks amazing too!

Blurb

“I can have whatever I want. I own you.”

Qillian Wehr is the last of his kind. A bloodline of unspeakable power.
To the Imbrian government, he is a weapon. A last resort in their age-old war with Rhyolus.
His leaders want insurance. They want an heir.
 They need a genetic match.
 And now, they’ve found her.

Exotic. Stunning. Lethal.
 Rushkah Ekhayl would murder Qillian in his sleep if she got the chance. She’s Rhyolusian. She is his enemy.

The Last Dominant is a scorching enemies-to-lovers romance where a taste of treason unlocks desires of submission and control. For mature readers only.

Publisher’s Note: This steamy sci-fi thriller contains elements of power exchange.

My Review – Super-hot and emotionally charged read!

This is a super-hot enemies to lovers sci-fi romance, containing a solid plot and sizzling scenes of power exchange and I found it to be a fabulous read. The powerful Imbrian Qillian is coveted as a valuable weapon in his people’s war with their enemies. He is tasked by his political masters to effectively breed Rushkah, a genetically compatible captive Rhyolusian, to ensure another of his ilk, and the evolving relationship between them is full of passion as the couple navigate their predicament.

Qillian and Rushkah are both dominants at heart, which makes for a fascinating read, full of conflict as the pair try and assert control over one another. Despite his strength and undeniable power, Qillian is just as much a pawn as Rushkah, and I found it fascinating how he deals with the situation. What starts off as mutual hate, distrust and loathing slowly transforms into mutual respect and more as the couple are closeted together by order of the Imbrian leaders who have their own methods of compulsion… 

The way these two characters rub each other up the wrong way is just so entertaining – Qillian is at heart a grumpy archivist, used to his own company and is frustrated by the very presence and actions of Rushkah, who seeks to get under his skin and defy him at every turn.  I could not put this book down as I was so invested in what this couple were going through and what would happen if and when the bloodline had been secured. The read contains some violence, as a number of powerful Imbrians view Rushkah and her people as little more than animals. 

This page-turning read is recommended for sci-fi readers who like engaging characters, great worldbuilding and intense and smoking hot lovemaking scenes.

*REVIEW* ~ Reckless, by Lily Harlem (Planet Alpha #15)

Adult/18+ read

Sizzling Sci-Fi Ménage!

I was SO excited to be given a copy of this sci-fi ménage to review. I have a real soft spot for erotic sci-fi  as it leaves plenty of scope  for fascinating world building, not to mention giving the author free rein to introduce plenty of super hot alien sex! 😉 Reckless by Lily Harlem, a standalone in the Planet Alpha series, delivered in spades on both counts. Scroll down to read the book blurb and my review. But first a little background on the Planet Alpha series…

The males on Planet Alpha need mates. Infertility has plagued their race for decades. The answer lies on Earth where tempting females are waiting to be saved. When their enemies attempt to claim the spoils of a dying world, only the strongest will get their prize.

Blurb for Reckless

reckless

Aurora Zenith is battling to survive in poisonous London. Working at a docking station to Planet Alpha is not helping. Why? Because each day she witnesses lucky humans rocketing to a better life in the stars. With a surname last on the list to escape and a lung condition making her first on the list for death she’s getting desperate … and reckless.

Seeing an opportunity to stow away on sexy Captain Ciro’s shuttle to Alpha, Aurora acts first and thinks later. Trouble is, without a plan she’s flailing in space and lost on an alien world.

A string of rash decisions and a hasty retreat make for a perfect storm of danger, deceit, and lust. Will Aurora escape the evil Xyran who has her in his sights? Will Captain Ciro ever tear his attention from his gorgeous copilot and notice her? And what do the Alphans mean when they say a woman will complete them?

The only thing to do is fly with them and see where she lands.

My Review – 5 stars

Sizzling Sci-Fi Ménage!

I LOVED this standalone erotic sci-fi romance by Lily Harlem. The read contains a woman fleeing Earth to save her life and two hot blooded Alphans who are hell bent on making her theirs, even if she is an illegal alien! The read contains some scorching scenes of ménage, voyeurism, self-pleasure and more.

Aurora Zenith is desperate, desperate to escape the pollution on Earth that is slowly but surely killing her. When she gets a chance to escape and make a new life for herself on a far flung planet she decides to throw caution to the wind and jumps at it. Yet stowing away on an alien ship bound for Planet Alpha is not a safe option, especially when she is travelling with false papers and she has already attracted the attention of the ship’s captain…  I was on pins waiting to see what would happen when the ship reaches its destination and her deception is discovered. Will she be punished and returned to Earth or can this illegal alien somehow make a future for herself? The stakes are high and the sex is off the Richter scale in his sizzling ménage by Lily Harlem.

Without a plan Aurora is compelled towards more and more reckless actions  and it is not long before she finds herself reunited with the handsome ship’s pilot Captain Ciro and his sexy co-pilot and lover Luc. There are some smokin’ hot scenes where Aurora is the lucky recipient of some alien loving! Be sure to have plenty of iced drinks on hand as the read hits the spot again and again!

I was rooting for Aurora from the off as she really has no choice to act in such a reckless fashion – escape Earth or die a slow and painful death. Captain Ciro is a loving dominant and Luc is equally dedicated to protecting and worshipping the lucky Aurora. The novel has plenty of danger and suspense as their future together is under threat from a number of sources and this added to my overall enjoyment.

Recommended for lovers of hot aliens, erotic romance and ménage.
