Publisher's Summary

"Resonance" is supposed to be a dream - that's when your soulmate is chosen for you. And everyone on the ice planet has hooked up with a big, hunky soulmate of their own...except me. So do I want a mate? Heck, yeah. More than anything, all I've ever wanted is to be loved by someone. Except that the soulmate chosen for me?

My least favorite person on the darn ice planet: Haeden's the most cranky, disapproving, unpleasant, overbearing male alien...so why is it that my body sings when he gets close? Why is he working so hard to prove to me that he's not as awful as I think he is? I hate him...don't I?

Contains mature themes.

Josie & Haeden

This one ended up being one of my favorites of the series. I am sad that Audible only has six of this series out but I’m hoping there will be more in the future. I might have to read them, and who has time for that anymore. I do look forward to the next book though, Ruby Dixon is learning how to bring the reader in with just a hint of what is happening at the end of each book. I guess I will start her Dragon series now. Narrators do a great job.

Josie resonates!

Josie finally gets her man! The last Earth woman to resonate...or is she?
The woman who lavishes her love and attention on her friends’ children when what she really wants is her own....finally resonates...with the one man she doesn’t want. Josie spends way too much time fighting her attraction to Haeden, but when she takes off on her own, Josie has several surprises in store for her.
I just have to say, Wow - sexy walking? The only other author to make that work was Jaid Black in No Mercy. Wait, also, Loving Deviant by Laurann Dohner.
Jackson does a really good job voicing emotions. I really appreciate the combination of Jackson and Lloyd as narrators. Their voices are complimentary and fit the series.

Blue is in

These blue aliens just do it for me. Book 6 is Haeden and Josie’s book. Josie starts out with a serious chip on her shoulder towards Haeden but you can’t fight the cootie!! Eventually you have to give in.

This book is full of alpha sweetness. Haeden is not like the other aliens. He is a little less confident in his romancing abilities. He didn’t just take his woman, he let her come to him. While this was a very frustrating dynamic... it did shake things up a bit.

Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd are perfect for these books. Usually I would appreciate different voices for each series but in this case, no. I love them for these books and I am so glad they narrate each book.

Another great Ice Planet story!

I really enjoyed Josie and Hayden’s story. The hero and heroine are at odds with each other from the very beginning of the humans crashing onto the planet. He’s always scowling at her and she’s always angry. When they suddenly resonate, Josie is not happy at all! Can Hayden get her to see him as good mate material? Or are they just doomed to disagree? Narration was very well done.

Hidden depths.

First off: what a cheeky book cover!

This is book 6 in the ICE PLANET BARBARIAN SERIES and while each story stands alone, I recommend they be read in order.

This is Josie and Haeden’s story and I love how Haeden’s horrified expression at resonating with Josie is explained. Cranky Haeden is not what I expected – he was better. Josie has experienced similar past horrors to Tiffany in book 5, but her story is handled completely differently in that regard by author Ruby Dixon - because we are not all the same. This novel had unexpectedly deep and meaningful moments I thoroughly enjoyed, together with the romance.

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. It just keeps getting better.

I recommend this series.

My absolute favorite!!

This was my favorite of the series. It had the perfect balance of tough and smart but reasonable heroine who actually had pride and stood up for herself but knew when to put others feelings first.

The perfect balance of possessive/alpha male but absolutely adoring at the same time.

It's so hard to get them this right! I'm almost worried the next one will disappoint just because I loved this one so much!

Excellent

The last adult single lady on the planet finally gets her mate! However, it’s the last alien on the planet she would ever have chosen! This story is written so well. The characters seem to despise each other, however through the unfolding of the story we see this is not true. It takes a great writer to craft a story like this one in a believable way (without getting boring or annoying.) Ruby Dixon never fails to bring an exciting, sizzling hot story to life with the Ice Planet series. A note on the audiobook: excellent doesn’t even do it justice! Holly is fantastic- you can hear every emotion come through loud and clear. Mason brings our hero to life with an amazing accent that never falters! Final note: this book has sizzling hot, graphically delicious alien/human mating scenes that are most definitely for the 18+ crowd.

Good

Good storyline, Josie got on my nerves at times for being quite selfish. For someone who talks all the time she sure has a problem communicating and seems to take everything the wrong way. The male MC has always been grumpy and tended to keep to himself but you can’t really blame him for being antisocial a bit especially with his history. It was well narrated and can’t wait to see what is next.

***Barbarian's Mate***

I love Josie and Haeden's story, their both had a very sad past specially our little Josie she is a fighter and a survivor who never gives up and doesn't complaint., she accepts and face all her problems head on and that is incredibly strong. Haeden the grumpy surly barbarian is perfect for Josie. Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd are both excellent narrators.
