To escape her father's debt to a loan shark, Dizzy seeks refuge in the upcoming Grab. She'd rather belong to one of those terrifying sky warriors from the battleship Valiant than to the sleazy criminal who wants her as his plaything. The years of constant war haven't been kind to highly decorated sniper Venom. Only the promise of earning a wife kept him going through deadly battles. Catching and collaring Dizzy fills him with incredible hope. Finally he has a woman of his own, a mate to love - and bind and adorn with his ropes.
After a brazen Splinter attack, the Shadow Force uncovers secrets about Dizzy's late mother that entangle her in a web of deceit. To save Venom, her father and an operative named Terror, Dizzy digs deep and risks it all. Venom refuses to stand idly by while Dizzy's haunted past threatens the future they're trying to build. He finally has a reason for living - and he's not giving her up.

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
If you haven't heard of this wonderful new Sci-Fi series before about the dominant sexy Alpha Sky Warriors, their overwhelming driving need and the lengths they each take to claim a mate and have a family of their own, then I suggest you quickly start. However, start with book 1 then follow it with book 2 as you'll be missing the all important and interesting who, what and why layers to the Harcos Sky Warrior's mentality and lives which helps you to understand these gentle giants of the skies. Also there's the ever building sub plot about the Rebel's uprising which has been simmering in the background but, in this 3rd book, they now become a real threat to all on board the Spaceship Valiant.
Back to this book.... Dizzy's life is threatened and her Father has put her in the Lottery and she wants out of her current life so she has every intention of being grabbed but she sees one of the huge Sky Warrior staring eagerly at her and he makes her wonder if she's doing the right thing. From the start Venom, a tattooed, pierced, badass Captain only had eyes for one woman but his 'Grab' didn't quite go as planned and for a little while he thought he was going to lose everything but in a touching scene Dizzy comes to his rescue and together they sealed her future. However, unknowingly Venom has grabbed much more than he bargained for when he tied his collar around Dizzy's neck.
The well-written, enjoyable and entertaining plot has many surprises in store for the couple but first they must learn to trust each other which, thankfully, comes naturally to them both as they are eager to make their 'marriage' work. This partly involves teaching Dizzy all about sex, ropes and bondage and Venom's tender and touching approach pays off when she happily complies with all his demands. But duty calls for Venom and secrets, surprises and shocks await Dizzy and she is forced, once again, to come to Venom's rescue. There are the familiar likeable/loveable/nasty characters from the previous books but various new characters have now joined the story which has enriched the plot.
Worth a credit? So far there are two aspects to each book in this series - the romance between the Sky Warriors and their grabbed wives which are always very sexually charged and erotic but sweet, romantic, touching and tender too. Then there's the building threat of the Terrorist Rebels which is quickly picking up speed and they're bringing death, destruction, hostage situations, fighting and fresh drama to the tense and, as yet, unknown outcome. So you certainly get lots of 'bangs' for your bucks (in every form) which makes this, IMHO, a very creditworthy listen.
Stellar series. Can't wait to read more!
Venom was a wonderful hero and Dizzy was a sweet girl making the best of the situation. While they had an easier start, they were by no means without their fair share of problems.
Glad that I got to visit with some old friends Nia and Halley and their Harcos mates. I also enjoyed the peek into what may be coming next. Keep 'em coming Ms. Lopez!!!
I am an avid fantasy and urban fantasy reader. I also read a lot of millitary romance.
I liked the series, and this was my favorite story so far. I will buy the next one right away.
I am the definition of a contradiction. I am a tomboy but just can't seem to get enough of romance books!
There is just something sexy about a man who refuses to share his prize. Unlike the other book, Venom is possessive & protective of his mate. The pair complimented each other. I think I fell in love with Venom from the moment he refused to give up his prize just because she got sick and needed surgery merely hours after collaring her...At time Venom acted like an arse but he sure knew how to make up for his mistakes! No to mention his "no panties" rule.. that got a chuckle out of me!! The deep romance through the good and the bad times are what made me love this book most! I would have bought it with a credit...luckily I got it on sale!
Saved by Venom was my favorite in the Grabbed series. I wish Lolita Lopez had continued it with Raze and some of the other officers. I even wanted Terror to have a chance at a mate. How interesting would his kink be?!
What I loved best about this 3rd book was that it went into the play of BSDM more than the others. I love the story line of all 3 books; I only wish the other 2 had more kink in them. I was sorry to see the series end.
I wanted to listen to the whole series without stopping.
I really like that each "alpha alien male" and each heroine have completely different personalities and characteristics.
I think Ms. Lopez has created an intriguing world with intriguing characters and hope she just keeps them coming and that Audible keeps providing them.
I'm a lover of books, both read and audible.
First I was confused when I started listening to this book because I felt I started in the middle of a series instead of the beginning and I was right. The first book of this series is Grabbed by Vicious. Audible has this book but it was released after Saved by Venom, hence the confusion. But about the book, it was a decent book. It’s a sci-fi/romance book. Some of the background information is fuzzy but again, I think it’s because I started reading the third book first instead of the first book. The sex scenes are hot, detailed and deal with a lot of bondage, so if that is turn off for you, don’t read this book. Venom is a sexy dominate alpha male solider, yum, who has dreamt of nothing else since leaving the academy then that chance to participate in the Grabbed and select his wife. Dizzy’s father sold her lottery number for the Grabbed to escape a debt he owed a loan shark. Dizzy thought she knew what to expect from the sky warrior after being grabbed but she wasn’t ready for the intense sexual chemistry that would also follow. Stella’s voice was ok. I wish it would have had more variety for the different characters. Sometimes it was hard to understand which character was speaking at that moment.
My only suggestion would be to read Grabbed by Vicious first. I think it will help to understand the world in which the series takes place.
