Hope Hart À 6 Read & DownloadE moment to find new amazing books to add to my bookshelves So my tolerance for books I m not immediately sucked into is pretty low I m looking for engaging writing well developed characters and engrossing plot lines I uite like a sci fi romance lol They are guilty pleasures for me I think From time to time I pop by to see what s trending in the genre and pick one up at randomI always end up skimming these sorts of books I didn t really like her She was so focused on running from him which is fine but it was to the point
I Was Turned Off Them As Awas turned off them as a I wouldn t mind reading about other couples in this series though I like my heroines a little softer Skimmed I love a story where the h runs and the H chases And a good portion of this book is the h running Harlow is a strong character She does not want to give into the aliens that have invaded earth and she does not want to just give her life up and mate with their king because they decreed she is his mate So she runs And Varian the king is baffled He doesn t understand why his mate would not want to run to him He s a bit arrogant at the beginning and he said and did some things that ticked me off but not too terribly I started to feel a bit bad for him Harlow sure did make him work for it I also liked that at the end of this book t I did not like this story I hate the H and I think Brenna should have given his assholery royalness hell For a small book this one packs uite a punch it totally caught me by surprise and I didn t see it coming And I think I am totally and irrevocably head over heels smitten in lust besotted obsessed in love with a golden horned king from out of space Am I reading a different book than everyone else So many 4 and 5 star ratings and for me this book left me feeling dirty and not the sexy way Look if ou look at my shelf I like me a good smut novel I like me a good sci fi romance I like me a good alpha male BUT I also like me a good sweet story with compelling characters and a HEA Where both characters grow and learn from each other and end up in a good place because of it There was none of that here Let s just list off the multitude of Red Flags1 Aliens come to our planet and run tests to find compatible mates for their men Those mates are taken off world AGAINST THEIR WILL There is mention of a woman that was taken from her husband and CHILDREN because good d all NO 2 Rape This book should have come with a trigger warning because the H is this *Story Is A Giant Effing Rapist And Anyone Who Says *is a giant effing rapist and anyone who says is deluded. Ng for her autonomyIf there's one thing Harlow knows it's this She'll never give up her freedom for a seven foot horned alien Even if his heated looks make her toes curl and his dominant ways give her goosebumps Varian doesn't understand why Harlow won't come to him How can she overlook the pleasure that awaits in his arms He'll keep her safe even if that means stealing her freedom forever With his sanity on the line he can't afford to go back to Arcavia empty handedWhen another species of aliens begin eyeing up Earth's resources. .
ImpressiveThis book came up as a recommendation from as I was one clicking another sci fi alien romance by a Fav author I figured what the hell and downloaded the sample Color me intrigued I am so glad I did First off this Author Hope Hart has a writing style that is smooth and seamless I really felt Harlow s anger fear and frustration at being forced to give up everything she d worked so hard to accomplish in her life It s not fair But in the same breath ou sympathize with Varian and the incredible pressures he is facing Trying to balance his emotions with the needs of his people and the continuation of his species is almost overwhelming The author weaves her tale in such a way that Φυσιογνωμία you can t help but to silently root for these two strong willed individuals and hope that they both can set aside their differences and revel in their similarities because there are many I have already one clicked the next book in the series and I am so glad to have found a new to me author that I enjoy so much Few spoilers aheadSo I feel like the minority here I was really looking forward to reading this book as the blurb sounded interesting From the beginning to the 50% mark I was very intrigued and I loved that she was trying to keep her freedom I also loved how he was trying so hard to find her So it made me want both of them happyBut then that came to an end when he just became worse than an alpha Especially toward the end when she did make a reference to a similarity of an abusive relationship when she would be on patrol I viewed the same way when she stated it that way I absolutely also hated the fact that they would tear families apart While it s stated that they don t harm children physically they sure don t have a problem with killing them emotionally or psychologically I mean to haveour mother ripped away from ou And H seemed so concerned when he found out she was in a foster home and was enlightened that children are sometimes neglected or physically or sexually abused
