I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Well, can you really call Harcos men aliens? IDK! They are just really big humanoid males... but let me tell you! This book GRABBED me at like the first chapter!
Hallie, getting ready to run for her freedom in the Grab, gets collared by a big Harcos warrior or "Sky Warrior", and is then taken aboard the spaceship which orbits Hallie's planet.
The Grab is a run where Harcos men get to keep the women they grab. They have to earn points to enter the grab, by doing missions. The point of the grab is for these Harcos men to be rewarded for their services to the Harcos army, and the earth women they grab become their wife, property or reward (whatever you want to call it.) Harcos men are used to a BDSM type lifestyle so the women they grab are collared. Any woman who takes off the collar or is seen 30 days after they are grabbed can be grabbed by someone else.
It sounds crazy but boy this book was a treat! It was so good, and totally made sense. The action, drama and hot SMEXYNESS made this book an awesome listen!
Narration was great. Shift in character's voices was seamless! Great.
This is worth a credit or sale.. maybe a buy if you just don't have a credit... under 15 bucks...but worth it...
I am a big fan of this series. Loved the audio version! Will totally buy the rest! Great job!
I have read this book and the story is good but the narrator Stella Bloom makes this book a thousand times better!!! A narrator can totally kill at book and this is an example where the narrator just makes this book AMAZING!!!
The narrator Stella Bloom is AWESOME!!!!! I would get any book she is the narrator on because she just bought the book to life! A+++
Earthlings left their dying planet and went in search of new planets to colonise, decades passed by and violence broke out so there was an agreement made between all the planets and the Harcos Sky Warriors that they would Police the skies and deliver goods. However, in return each planet must hold a Grab Lottery where single females are picked, a course is set-out and, if they get to the safe zone, they're rewarded with their freedom. But the strong, fit, tall and desperate Harcos Warriors are giving chase and they're all keen to Grab a bride and take her back to their War Ship that's floating somewhere in Space.
Smart, sassy, confident and sweet, Hallie is one such female and she's just been Grabbed by handsome intelligent Vicious the Colonel of the Warriors and she's heard the terrible rumours about them and how they treat the brides so she thinks her nightmare is just beginning. However, Vicious is not what she was expecting - he's thoughtful, kind, sympathetic and very sexy but he's also all Alpha and he's eager to 'consummate' the marriage that night with the help of leather straps.
This is an exciting, unpredictable, enjoyable, action-packed listen as Vicious slowly learns how to please Hallie and his character development is delightful to witness as he becomes a thoughtful loving husband. There's lots of hot sex with light BDSM, voyeurism and a kinky dress-up scene but it's the touching and tender way that Vicious looks after Hallie, slowly changes for her and, as they find love, they learn to trust and understand one-another. There's plot twists, a wild party, various traumatic dramas and some interesting secondary characters whose books will, no doubt, follow.
Worth a credit? YES definitely, it was a great start to a fascinating Sci-Fi romance that's full of erotica so if this genre ticks your boxes then I'm sure you'll find it creditworthy too and I'm off to Grab the next in the series - Menace's story then Venom, Raze, Cipher, Terror and finally Torment.... great names aren't they.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Born and bred for the military, Vicious has spent the last twenty-four years rising through the ranks. This dark-haired sprite ensnared him with one glance. Now she is his reward.
Despite her fear of Vicious, Hallie surrenders under his skillful hands and mouth. Vicious makes a promise to her. If she’ll submit to him, she’ll know only pleasure and comfort. After a lifetime of hardship, his offer tempts her greatly.
One night with Hallie and Vicious feels his protective instincts flaring. He’ll do anything to make her happy and keep her safe, even if that means surrendering his heart. Though he intended to master her, Vicious realizes it may be his sweet Hallie who masters him.
Our heroine endures trials and violence with strength equal to that of her warrior mate. There is loads of Sex in this story. It is much like Laurann Dohner's Cyborg series so if you liked that you will probably like this book. I don't like to compare authors but as they are so much alike It's hard not to. For me this book did not thrill me like Laurann Dohner's Cyborg series . :)
If you are going to read one erotic romance, make it this one!
Delicious sex (and lots of them), a very yummy true alpha male, believable and non annoying heroine, well thought plot line and story, good writing and awesome, I mean *awesome* narration (Kate Russell take notes)!
I noticed a comment about this being similar to Laurann Dohner's Cyborg series and I have to disagree -- I have read LD's entire Cyborg series as well as her New Species and all I have to say is Lolita Lopez's story is well written unlike LD's choppy childlike style. Ms Lopez also weaves a better story line, puzzle pieces fit in well, again unlike Laurann Dohner.
I think I have finally found my favorite erotic romance writer.
I liked Vicious and Hallie very much, but let me be honest, the narrator can make or break a story and this woman, ah, Stella Bloom, you are perfect! Thank you!
Oh, my yessssss -- Stella Bloom should read all erotic romance novels, like the ones read by Mindy Kennedy, Jill Redfield, Eric G. Dove, Kate Russell -- mmhmm, Ms. Bloom, you are fabulous.
Yes, yes, yes....
5 + 5 stars!
This is a new writer for me and I loved the story it has the drama, action, and some very hot hot love scene. I will be reading the other books in this series.
My favorite things are my family and my books! Depending on the day, not in that order. :)
Can I just say that I really enjoyed this book! The story was great. The characters were well developed and easy to like. I liked the fact that both of the main characters were strong and didn't let the other one run them over. They learned about each other and let the relationship grow. Vicious was one mean SOB, but with Hallie, he was gentle and considerate.
Crazy red head who's head over heels about family, friends and life in general!
Forced to participate in "The Grab" to save her sister, Hallie is taken by a top ranking officer from the Valiant war ship. He collars her and claims her by simply saying "mine". Assuming the horror stories are true and the women taken by these warriors are made sex slaves and severely abused, Hallie fears the worst at the hands of her sky warrior. She wakes up chained to a bondage table but soon realizes the women taken are a great honor for these men and a prize hard won. Under the hands of her new Master, Hallie blossoms in her new life. Vicious is the perfect mate and sexual partner, always concerned for his wife's satisfaction and safety. This is actually a very sweet story full of humor, action and lots and lots and lots of steamy sex. It takes a little bit different point of view on bondage and sex games that I found thought provoking. I might caution a reader that the first portion of the book is just one sex scene after another. It does take a while for the actual story to develop but once it does it is pretty good. This book is followed by two more with basically the same story with different couples and I enjoyed all three. It was nice to get out and read something different. Thanks Lolita for including all the previous characters in the other stories as the series develops.
I'm a lover of books, both read and audible.
Now that I have read Grabbed by Vicious, I wish I could change my review for Saved by Venom because I absolutely loved both books. Vicious is a scrumptious Sky Warrior General that is participating in the grabbed to “grab” a mate. He thinks he knows exactly the type of female he would prefer to be his mate until he spots Hallie studying the map of the area with deep intensity. Vicious thought Hallie would be an easy grab because of her smaller statue but the little sprite gave him a run for his money. Hallie desperately tired to out run the sky warrior and make it to the safe zone. With the area in her sites, she knew she was going to make it. Until she felt big, rough, hands wrapped around and grab her. Now she is the mate of a terrifying sky warrior and wonders if all the rumors she had about them were true. But slowly Hallie understand that the rumors are not only false, but the pleasure Vicious excites within her sets her body ablaze.
Vicious is a jaw dropping, drool worthy alpha male. He commands any room he enters but is speechless when he is alone with Hallie. Their moments alone are full of passion, romance and unbridled smex. MMMM! Hallie allows him to command her actions in public but in the bedroom, she is the one that brings Vicious to his knees. This book has everything that is needed for a great romance. Some action, CHECK. Hot alpha male, CHECK. Strong-willed heroine, CHECK. Hot steamy romance scenes, CHECK and CHECK.
My opinion, purchase the book. It’s definitely worth the credit. I’m off to read Caught by Menace.
I listened to the story without a break. Good to the last word. Lolita has created a new world with great guys. The story line is plausible and interesting in itself and her relationships are fun. Lolita explores complicated feelings and desires. I am looking forward to her next installment.
