Publisher's Summary

You'd think a tall woman would fit in on a planet of seven-foot-tall aliens, but even on the ice planet, I'm still a weirdo and an oddity. I'm everything all the other cute, dainty human women aren't.

One guy in particular - the alien Harrec - is determined to embarrass me by pretending he's interested. He's a jokester that flirts like mad and hits on me constantly just to make me feel foolish. He gets under my skin. He makes me so frustrated I want to scream.

When a side-trip to a glacier turns into a nightmare and the two of us are forced to survive alone, I see another side to the enticing blue alien. Even with no one else around, his compliments keep coming and I start wondering if the attraction between us...is real.

Contains mature themes.

Harrec gets his own mate

Love this series! Dixon does a great job of creating stories and characters that make sense and are original. This is one of the best alien male/human female series out there.
Kate is sensitive about her larger size, height, and virginity. So, of course, she gets Harrec the prankster and ego demolisher shadowing her everywhere. It takes a real effort by Harrec, and near catastrophe for Kate to see past the surface to what could be the best thing that ever happened to her.
Jackson and Lloyd do a really good job of narration.

Sexy banter wins love for Harrec

While the series lagged from books 7-10, things have picked up since the introduction of new blood. Harrec is a shameless flirt and comedian, which makes for humorous fireworks. Since both he and Kate are virgins, the sex is tamer and takes longer to happen. But the sexy fun dialogue filled in the missing chemistry just fine.

A favorite in the series

I loved book 4, but this one is great too. I was getting bored, but the last one and this one are getting things back on track!

Kate and Harrec.

Somehow all the females feel like they are freaks somehow or another and Kates hang up is how tall she is, but luckily, she finds a big blue hunk taller than her (although that should not matter with love.) Another smexy story and sweet love story. To me the series feels like a big, long book, just from different points of views, so I recommend reading in order, Icehome series will begin I think after Barbarian’s Tease, even if I have read some from that series already. Narrators are excellent.

This book is what "Tall Girl" thought it was

This book is what Netflix's "Tall Girl" thought it was. Kate is a tall woman who is athletic and strong, with white-blond hair and porcelain skin. She's a badass nordic queen and I live for her. I enjoyed hearing about her insecurity about her height/size. I am five foot two, so I cannot relate, but it's always fun to read a character who is so different from me who had new experiences I can try to empathize with.

Harrec (excuse any misspellings) CRACKED ME UP. The way he describes Kate is so funny to me, because with his lack of knowledge of Kate's insecurity as a tall human woman, his compliments were over the top and so wild that Kate took them as insults, as would literally any other human women. As the reader, we obviously know it's all a big misunderstanding, and knowing his outrageous compliments are actually genuine, is hysterical. This guy has all the confidence in the world with 0 game, and that makes for a very entertaining character. I loved the back and forth between him and Kate, I loved how they could be so harsh and direct with each other but be able to brush it off because of their report with one another. They communicated so comfortably in awkward situations because they were able to bring humor to those moments which I really liked.

One thing that I'm not a huge fan of among most of these books, is the amount of virgins. I love how representative the characters are of different races, personalities, physical body types, career paths, and experiences the books are, but there are a surprising amount of adult women who are virgins, and if they are supposed to look anything like the women on the covers of the books, they aren't hard to look at. The fact that the women are virgins aren't even that big of a deal and I wouldn't mind it at all if Dixon hadn't taken so many liberties writing the sex scenes. I think what takes me out of it is how the reality of losing ones virginity as a human female is not at all in line with what happens in the books. Theres a surprising lack of blood, discomfort, and pain, which is especially surprising given the description of the Sok-Qui "junk". What I love about these books is the way the human experience is seen through new eyes and how the differences between the Sok and the Humans are highlighted. With such a focus on sexuality and sex, I'm surprised by the liberties taken by Dixon when it comes to describing the loss of one's virginity. I'm not sure I understand the purpose of pointing out that these women are virgins, if the loss of the virginity isn't accurately described. If the sex is just like that of the non-virgin women, what was the point in making them virgins? Maybe Dixon just wants to highlight the first time experience the women are having versus the physical toll it takes on their bodies, but idk, with the amount of accurate details that she's taken the time to add in, it seems like this wouldn't be a huge deal to include.

I'm being picky :) The sex scenes are always super hot and fun to listen to and I have not gotten tired of them yet! Perhaps I'm a bit more nit picky and I notice more stuff 13 books in, but that hasn't stopped me from reading books 14+.

If you've made it this far in the series, you will love book 13!

Very Sweet but Funny too!

First, these two narrators do such an amazing job, I just love them! Second, the H is so light and wanting to please the h that he doesn't notice how embarrassing he's making her. He thinks he's giving her compliments but to her, they are teases and such. I am happy with this pair though, they took their time, had some bumps lol but also helped each other too. Can't wait to read (listen) to the next.

I love this series

I am in love with this whole series but I’m a little afraid that this book will be forgettable among the past and future stories. There wasn’t much to it that made it stand out.

It was still a good story, but now that it’s over I’m sitting here trying to remember it.

The road less travelled leads to danger & love.

This is book 13 in the ICE PLANET BARBARIAN SERIES and each story stands alone, I usually recommend they be read in order. However, as I listened to character Kate do an exemplary job of summarising the background of this series, I thought anyone could pick up this novel, and not feel lost. However, this whole series is wonderful, and I cannot resist the temptation to read all the stories and in order if I can.

I worried when Kate misinterpreted well-meaning comments about herself as criticism, and I wondered how long she would remain blind to others’ truthful complements. Cynicism and “poor me” are tedious if they go on too long. Luckily, a big event happens to Kate and Harrec and acts as the perfect circuit-breaker. I love that both Kate and Harrec have weaknesses they help each other deal with. This was a good give and take relationship and I enjoyed the way their time alone together in harrowing circumstances helped them both grow into better people toward each other and others. And the introduction of a new pet into the tribe is delightful, though bitter-sweet. It’s lovely to watch the children of the couples from the previous books growing up too. Addictive series.

Audible narrators Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd do a wonderful job bringing the characters to life.

This series has been a welcome and unexpected boost to my romance listening enjoyment. Not a dull moment. Where to next?

I recommend this series.

OK story

This book was different in that both main characters were virgins. There were plenty of funny moments. I found myself laughing out loud on a plane at some of the things there heroine said or thought. The h really made the H work for it and he was very patient with her. The pace of this book is a little slower than some of Ms Dixon's other books in the series but was still good. As always, Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd did an awesome job with the narration.

Hooked on Barbarian series!!⭐⭐⭐⭐

Ms. Dixon I really dig this unusual series. I have listened to every book and look forward to each new release. The stories and series are entertaining and hot and sexy. Hollie and Mason are absolutely fantastic in this series. I've listened to some of your other books but this one is a favorite because I love these characters. Love the dung chips references..And I love when the hunters resonate and adore their mates.
