Genre: Romance, Erotica
Blurb: Two brothers want to possess her…After her planet was destroyed, Brianna was rescued by two fierce and desperately gorgeous warrior brothers. Aeron and Hauk. They want to keep her, protect her, mate her. But what the brothers wanted from her was too much to handle. Settling into a new culture was hard enough without dealing with the custom that dictates she mate with two males. So she pushed them away. They’ll do anything to protect her…An attack sends Brianna back into the arms of the sexy brothers. Now they’ll do whatever it takes to win her over. But can Brianna go against the conventions of her human nature and accept both warriors as her mates? It might not matter because someone is out for blood and it’s up to Aeron and Hauk to defend her against a deadly enemy.
Thoughts: This book is not really a part of a series, but it is connected to a previous book, Heated Mating. I wasn’t aware of this when I first started it, but for me it was glaringly obvious that I was missing something. From the first few pages, it quickly became apparent that there was already this history between Brianna and the two men, Aeron especially. There were numerous other instances where it bothered me that I wasn’t caught up with the history between these characters, and that really bothered me throughout the course of the book.
Another issue for me was the length. Granted, this is a novella, but it seemed like everything was a bit rushed to me. And then the end just sort of conveniently fell into place all of a sudden, and I really had expected a bit more. Part of the reason it bothered me so much, is because the story was really well written and interesting. I liked her style of writing, the inventiveness behind the world of Luminess, and the even the characters. Once I was done though, I was really left wanting quite a bit more.
I will probably read more by this author in the future – some of her longer length titles – but this one was just okay. I think it could have been better, especially if it were more drawn out and lengthier. If you’re looking for a quick read though, it’s really interesting, action packed, and has some scorcher erotic moments that might get you a little hot and breathless.
