Publisher's Summary

I've ruined everything. 

I had a mate. Resonance. Happiness. But then T'chai's attacked by ravenous sky-claw and almost killed. To help him recover, I tell the healer to turn off our unfulfilled resonance. It's temporary...or so I think. 

Big mistake. Because now my khui acts like it's dead and it hates T'chai. But I still love him. How do we move forward when I can't bear his touch? Is there a way to get back our happiness together, or is it time to give up on what we once had? 

T'chai has other plans, though. He's not giving up on us. If it means crossing the world, he's ready to do it at my side.

Contains mature themes.

Marisol and T’chai.

I wasn’t sure how well I was going to like this one, but it surprised me, and I liked it better than expected. Of course, in my opinion there hasn’t been a bad one yet. I recommend listening in order starting with the Ice Planet Barbarian series. Got the series with my Kindle Unlimited and was able to purchase this for the Whispersync price. Narrators are great, I do tend to use speed 1.25x, just because I have so many books to read and it doesn’t ruin the narration.

Hmmm when rensonance is turned off

I am not sure how I felt about this story. It was a good story for sure, but was it romantic? Yes, I guess so, Was it sexy? Questionable.

Mari has a healer turn off her parasite's resonance to save her mate. He is still resonating with her but she is not with him. So she needs to learn how to like his touch. I know this is just science fiction romance, but you cannot really learn to like someone's touch. You either are attracted to them or you are not. It is nature and biology and nothing that can be controlled which is what is so fun about the Ice Planet Series that for the most part everyone is more or less equal and all the men are more or less of good character and are built like Chris Hemsworth but with horns and blue. And then no matter who you resonate to that is fine because you are attracted to them like crazy for Blue Planet evolutionary purposes. Fine.

However, in the real world so many women, especially in places like the US, marry men they are not necessarily attracted to because they need to or because he is good enough. Not to say that these are bad people or bad guys, but there's not a spark of lust. The relationship between Mari and her husband was so reminiscent of some of my middle-aged friends telling me about a lack of spark in their intimate relationships and even though it works out for Mari and her man, in the end, it doesn't in real life and I didn't want to even be reminded of the relationships my friends, both men and women signed up for because it is kind of depressing. I love Ruby Dixon to escape the reminder that people don't have. The narration by Sean Crisden and Felicity Munroe was great as always. They are the Ice Home voices and although they are similar in style to Hollie Jackson, et al. I find their different takes on this alien world refreshing.

Finally!

We finally find out what happened with Mari and T'chai. It took long enough! Lol but it was well worth it. I had moments of really feeling bad for the both of them because of what they were going through.

Oh! And FUCKIN Tia! I was about sick of her ass. And I had no sympathy for those damn tears. I mean I was a flirt at 17 too. He'll! I'm a flirt now at 35, but I always knew limits and boundaries. She has none. And couldn't see that she was the problem. It was definitely time for her to go 🤷🏾‍♀️

Whine. Whine. Whine

One of the best things when theses books began was the strong capable women. Unfortunately Mari from her first appearance in earlier books was a weak simpering coward. A full book about her without any redeeming qualities was just too much. I have purchased each book by this imaginative author saddlery I will need to seriously consider if I want to purchase any more since the last two books have such uninspired heroines.

Mari's Mistake

This is a very enjoyable story about a woman who finds love with someone who doesn't speak her language. It was interesting to hear how she got over that challenge and was able to build a life with her man.

love this series!!

ruby delivers as usual. I can't wait until the next book. I love when a new character arrives giving more mystery on what is yet to come. I like the cave with the indoor pool and am hoping they find another one. the group at the beach seems to need more support. maybe a 3rd group could break off. Murdoch's pal can continue saving humans and delivering them!!
