Stuck on a military outpost in the middle of nowhere, Zoey had been praying for something to relieve her boredom.
She never dreamed that relief would come in the form of a seven-foot tall, sexy alien. One who claimed she belonged to him.
Except, there was something pulling her to him… a deep, hot attraction she couldn’t deny.
Dexanon Xa’a always thought his mate would be a sweet, obedient female. Instead, the Gods landed him with a maddening, outspoken, outrageous female who didn’t comprehend the honor that had been bestowed on her.
Dex might have a rockin’ body, but his ideas about women needed a total overhaul.
And she was just the woman to do it.
I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars, it was a quick read and not much to dive into with the number of pages. Zoey is kidnapped from her outpost in space and is immediately deemed the alien prince, Dexanon Xa’a’s soulmate. Zoey being the strong level headed woman she is denied the connection she felt towards Dex and outright refused to be treated like a “princess” if that’s what you want to call it.
Dex and his peoples’ way of taking care of women is how we see in most hero driven books, they want their mate, soulmate, or chosen to stay behind closed doors being waited on hand and foot as if there is nothing a female can offer to aid the hero in any way. Of course, Zoey is totally against this, and that leads to she and Dex constantly arguing.
I wish a lot more of the issues were resolved in this first book, while Zoey companions kept things interesting, and I did applaud Zoey for standing up for what she wanted and being against the sexism actions taking place, I still found her character lacking.
If you have read any of the books in the series, let me know what you thought.
