I don’t have a good reason why I am still reading this series. It isn’t particularly good, but it isn’t horrible either.

Rhal

Did I like this one? That question is still floating around in my head and I have yet come up with an answer for it. It was definitely better than the last installments, more effort put into the character development and the world outside of the bedroom, so there is that. It was entertaining to a degree, the drama was pretty good, but at times a little grating due to Rhal being a little too emo for me. He is supposed to be a master assassin! Master assassins don’t whine like babies.

Harmony

This one was interesting because instead of the usual MC Romance I am used to, where the club girls are stigmatized by the main characters, this one is featuring one as it’s main character. We got to see the other side of club life and the dynamics and reasons some of these girls choose to be passed around the club instead of finding Mr. Right.

Porn Star

With a title like Porn Star, I went into this book thinking it would be heavy on the sex and light on the plot, and since I was suffering through a 16-hr car ride back home from my family’s spring break vacation, it seemed like the perfect book to help me escape from the claustrophobia that sets in when I am a victim of long car rides. While there is indeed many. many, many, many, many sex scenes in this book, I found myself actually pleasantly surprised that there was actual meat to this story besides Logan O’Toole’s…meat.

Spin

There seems to have been a trend among authors to write trilogies. I don’t mind this as much as the next person, largely because I rather have well written, flushed out plot, than a rushed through series of loosely held together plot points (I’m looking at you Beautiful Disaster!). I came across this book when I was looking for a good Mafia-like story to read and it was pretty good.

The Professional

The Professional is a quick-yet-steamy story about a woman named Natalie, a grad student who works hard everyday so she can uncover the mystery of her absent biological parents. Her answers come, but not in the way she thought they would, when Aleksei, on the orders of his Boss (who is also Natalie’s father), shows up to collect her and bring her back to Russia. Her father is in the middle of a power struggle, leaving her a weakness he can not let anyone exploit, so he wants her under his protection so she can be safe. He also wants to introduce himself to her, explain the reason why he had been absent in her life, and get to know her better.

Barbarian Mine

Barbarian Mine steps away from the formula created my the previous books when it introduces us to Ruhk. Ruhk is a sa-khui, but he doesn’t live with the rest of the group in the cave system. He lives alone as a recluse, his late father instilling fear of the others into him from an early age that has carried on to his adulthood. The others do not know of his existence, thinking he died long ago, and he has survived, barely, depending solely on himself, and his skills as a hunter and his wits. It is during one of his “hunts” that he comes across Harlow. She is one of the women who crash landed on the planet awhile back, and is one of the more useful ones out of the group.

Barbarian Lover

Barbarian Lover is the third book in this series, and gives us the story of Kira (one of the girls who crash landed on Not-Hoth) and Aehako (one of the blue aliens that are hosting them). She is the girl in the previous books with the translator on her ear, who is very standoffish and keeps to herself. She hasn’t “resonated” with any of the sa-khui and she thinks it is because of the trauma that occurred to her when she was younger. She had an infection that ruptured her appendix that she thinks has now caused her to be infertile.
