RATING: 2-2.5 "Where is the Plot?" Hearts! :/

Hunted is book 2 in Anderson's erotic sci-fi series. Having read book 1, I am not sure why I read book 2, except that I was in the mood for the type, the book was cheap, and I really wanted to turn off my brain and not think for awhile, which is a large reason why I read these types of books in the first place. I should have learned my lesson with the first book.

This is what I call innocent erotica. It is not my favorite type. The heroine is inexperienced and the final seduction scene nearly ma

Sophia is claustrophobic, scared of needles, scared of blood, scared of heights, big dogs and haunted house carnival rides. Something bad happened in her past, but the way she's freaking out about everything, including squeaking constantly when she accidentally touches a scrape is getting a little irritating. And poor Sylvan, everytime she looks at him it's in fear or terror. Even when he's trying to comfort her after she goes to him!, she still recoils. Why do these brothers have to be torture ...more

Mixed feelings about this. It was very readable and entertaining in its way -- i.e., as sheer OTT erotic fantasy -- but also had quite a few annoying elements.

1) The basic relationship was very similar to that in the first book: endlessly eager, loving, gorgeous man who wants nothing but to go down on the heroine all night long and TSTL woman who resists him for some dumbass reason for 300 pages (but lets him go down on her). And the resisting is not because he's a benevolent sexist, mind you, w

Hunted, like it's predecessor, is sub-par sci-fi sprinkled on top of a hot sex/annoying arche-type sundae.

Sophia is weak and spineless. She's afraid of everything. It's probably because she had a traumatic sexual experience when she was younger, so I can empathize with that to some extent. But her irredeemable insipidness? Nope.

Sylvan was more likeable to me than Baird, but I tend to find brooding and emotionally with-drawn bad boys sexy. He seemed to be a bit more refined, and I will admit tha

I actually think I enjoyed this book a little bit more than the first one, although I definitely preffered Olivia as a heroine, she was so much stronger. Sophia really started to get on my nerves at times.
What I liked so much about this book was the switches in point of view. It gave us a great opportunity to catch up with past characters and meet new ones whilst still enjoying the main love story. It was fantastic.

Anyhoo,

Summary
Hunted (Brides of the Kindred) is book two in the Earth Girls are Stupid series. This series of books is intertwined so they cannot be read independently. The heroine, Sophie, has a terrible phobia about needles stemming from a childhood illness which leads her to fear all things sharp including the fangs of the alien to which she is secretly attracted. Not sure how she can even manage to handle a knife enough to eat dinner considering the depth of her issues. Sophie's endless anxiety goe

Two scared beings come together, and learn to heal each others hearts but it'll take a lot before they admit their true feelings for one another.

Sophia Waterhouse is deathly afraid of needles. As a young child she became ill and have to undergo several blood transfusions which has scared her mentally. To top it off after the death of her parents she was brutally attacked and has sworn off men until Sylvan enters her life.

What I liked.
Hero and heroine are tortured souls and I'm sucker for that.

What I disliked.
- It was dragged story with unnecessary addition of subplots.
- Lust in threesomes or more is acceptable but love, no.
- Heroine is quite annoying.
- The over usage of indicating stammer or stutter or unsure "uh" in almost every dialogue.

Sadly, I decided to discontinue the series because I cannot stand excessive usage of 'uh'. It is tiring and irritating to read.

Evangeline has quickly become one of my favorite authors with this series!

The first book made me question, I overlooked the annoying heroine for the awesome world building and actual storyline.

We first met Sophia in Claimed, she is the twin sister to Olivia. They are totally identical aside from the hair color. Now, in that book you first see the connection between her and Sylvan. You know its there, they sort of unconsciously calm and ease each other worries. We see Sophia as strong albeit a

This is the second installment of this series and I have decided that, so far, I do not like any of the heroines in this series. They are weak. They are annoying. They are slap worthy. Get over it already. This is the story of Sophia, twin to the sister in the first book. The Kindred that she should be mated to, has fangs. Because of a childhood illness, which, the whole history of that is stupid, (her parents would rather her go through several painful transfusion that to have one common ...more

This was even better than Claimed. I couldn't stop laughing. I think it was because Baird always knew what he was saying to Liv was provocative and dirty, whereas Sylvan is being serious as a heart attack. when he makes these outrageous sexual comments. He might as well be reading the Wall Street Journal.

I have to hand it to Ms. Anderson. She has a real gift for making sex NECESSARY FOR SURVIVAL in her stories. I keep reading to see why it is they HAVE to get busy this time.

She's only on the Kindred Mothership to participate in her sister Liv's wedding and that's all.

I am really enjoying these books so far. They are so well thought out and the characters have such diverse personalities that you cannot help but feel for whatever they are going through. The plots follow a natural progression which allows to follow along even if you have not read the previous. The flow is seamless and allows for better understanding of not only the characters but also situations which are represented. And to make it even better, at least for me, the stories are told from ...more

It's hard to believe this has an estimated 472 paperback pages. It flew by like a book half its page count. The entertainment value is very high indeed.

As with the first, the dialog and situations are a mixed bag. I doubt most readers will enjoy every part of this book. But as long as you're a willing participant and your desire to be entertained silences the critical parts of your mind, I think there is a lot to enjoy.

I found Hunted to be more enjoyable than the first book. The action and sexu

As I finish the second book in this series, I'm starting to realize just how well this story is working for me. The world that Ms. Anderson has created with the Kindred is done so well, and at just the right pace. I'm thoroughly enjoying the ride.

Hunted is the story of Liv's twin sister Sophia and our resident blonde/fangy honey Sylvan. She's being hunted by the urlich and the AllFather (insert shudder here) throughout the whole book while fighting her developing feelings for the Blood Kindred.

Evangeline Anderson is an excellent author and this book is an amazing example. The story was a fantastic study into the emotional and psychological aspects of of two people hurt by tragedy in their lives and how they overcame their fears. Once again, I could not put this book down. I highly recommend it.

I am not sure it was even "just ok". I hated Sophia. I don't think I am have come across a more whiny, stupid heroine in all of my reading. She was the most annoying person ever, to read about.

How disappointing after Claimed being so good. This is only 2 stars becuase of the steamy scenes.

This was better and worse than book 1. Better because of plot worse because I was looking for smut.

The main character is Sophia (or Sophie) who is twin sister of Olivia from book 1. We can all tell from book 1 where things were going with book 2 just like I can see who books 3 and 4 will be about from this book. Sophia was an annoying character, she had a lot of issues that drove me nuts though her reasons for them were legit. Sophia was (view spoiler)

Ok, I really don't know what to say about this one, but I think I'm rounding up on my rating There were things I really liked about this story and The Kindread males over all, but the girl. Not so much...

The story could have been fantastic, but the heroine was sooooo!!!!! annoying! "I'm scared of this, I'm scared of that". Maybe it's realistic to be afraid to mate a huge alpha male alien with fangs and wants to bite you, but so what!? Who wants Science Fiction Fantasy Roman

This is book two in the Brides of the Kindred series, and it was really just more of the same. I'm ready to give up on the heroines in this series. They are just so whiny and weak. Sophie was worse than the heroine of the previous book--very timid and afraid of everything. She's attracted to the hero but frightened by his fangs because she doesn't like needles due to a childhood illness. She's constantly stammering, embarrassed, blushing and scared.

Sylvan well what can I say??? You get to know him as this cool and collected Blood Kindred and I fell in love with him from the first time he was introduce in book one.

The story is fresh – the verbiage simple but ingenious – and the men OMG, yum. I don’t give out fives often because I always hope that somewhere along the line I will run into another book or series that keeps me this wrapped up. I bow down at your ability to make laugh and then cry.

This is a fun read as long as you don't find the heroine Sophia too whiny and don't take it all too seriously!

Its another bit of guilty pleasure and the author does a good job making the reader interested in upcoming characters.(Eg,Zairn, the "evil" son of the ultimate bad guy is intriging)

I have no idea why I like this series. The books don't have strong plots, the characters aren't anything special, and they're pretty long for erotica. Maybe I just have a thing for alien porn... Whatever it is, it works for me.

“We may have to mask your scent.” He looked at her soberly. “Did Olivia tell you anything about scent marking?” “Scent marking?” Sophie wracked her brain, trying to remember. It seemed vaguely familiar though she couldn’t remember exactly what it involved. Still, how bad could it be? “Oh, uh, sure. Scent marking.” She nodded. “Good. Because in the last extremity, if I hear the sniffers around this cabin, I may have to scent mark you—to mask your scent with my own.” “Can you do that? I mean, is your scent that much stronger than mine, especially when they’re focused on me?” Sylvan looked down at his hands. “Normally it isn’t but right now…ever since the trip we took in the transport tube…” Sophie thought of the warm, spicy scent that seemed to go to her head, the way it made her react to him… “It’s your mating scent, isn’t it?” she asked in a low voice, not daring to look at him. “Yes.” He sounded ashamed. “But why…” She risked a sidelong glance at him. “Why is it coming out now? I, uh, thought it only happened during the claiming period. But you’re not, um, claiming me or anything. I mean, we’re not… you know.” “I know.” He shook his head. “I don’t understand what’s going on either. We haven’t even been dream sharing. Well, that is, I mean…” He cleared his throat. “I’ve had a few dreams of you. But nothing out of the ordinary.” He glanced at her. “Have you…had any strange dreams?” “No.” Sophie shook her head and a look of mingled disappointment and relief passed over his stern features. “I have been, uh, having problems with my art, though,” she admitted in a low voice. “Problems with your art?” He frowned. “What do you mean?” “I paint,” Sophie explained. “You know—with a paintbrush and easel?” She made a painting motion in the air and his eyes widened. “That was what I dreamed. That you were painting a picture of…of me.” Sophie nearly choked. “But I have been! You’re all I’ve been able to paint lately. Even when I try not to, you always sneak in there.

The way Baird claimed Liv?” Oh my God, if he does, if he claims me, then he’ll want to bite me! That’s the way his people do it. She had horror-movie visions of being held down under his muscular bulk, held down and pierced multiple times and in multiple ways. God, his teeth in my throat at the same time he’s inside me, filling me, holding me down and biting and thrusting. He’s so big, so strong—I’d never be able to get away. The horror she felt must have showed on her face, because Sylvan’s voice was rough when he spoke. “Don’t worry, Sophia. Even if I wanted to claim you, I couldn’t.” “Oh right.” She felt a small measure of relief. “Your vow.” “My vow,” he agreed. “Sylvan,” 1 likes
