This book introduced me to BDSM and I must say, I've been hooked ever since.

Today a migraine tried to set its claws into my brain. I knew I wouldn't be able to concentrate so I settled in with tea, meds, and the wackiest book I could find - Bound to Trust. I mean, it's set on a BDSM planet! An Intergalactic Marshall goes undercover and takes a cop as his sub! I was so ready for some craycray.

Sadly, it's only cray singular. Our hero is an alien from said planet, though he seems to be completely human (if well endowed). Well-worn tropes abound - a strong woman realizing s

Sex, sex, and nothing but sex. Well written sex, to be sure. I'm not a prude, but I like to read a full story with sex appearing the way it does in real life. It can appear often (and in detail), but where are the lives and circumstances around it? I don't even see the point of this being in a so-called "sci-fi" setting.

The reviews I read said this was a sci-fi story. Barely. It's sci-fi only because it tells you it's sci-fi, it has a portal to travel between earth and another planet. It mentio

I usually read books with a little lighter sex scenes and less of the sex more of the story line, but I have to say this book kept my interest. It was interesting to be part of such a different kind of world and a different kind of personal and sexual relationship. As far as the storyline goes it was kind of simple but again interesting enough to keep my attention. I enjoyed this book overall and felt it enlightened me to a different way of thinking sometimes.

I chose this one to fit the mood in and because it looked like it might be fun. It was. Amusing but without any major depth, although the characters were appealing.

Okaaaay then. I don't even know where to start. I love a sexy book but this one felt like it was all crazy sex with a mediocre plot thrown in. It was almost 'too much'. Had the plot and character development been better, I probably wouldve rated the book higher. But for me, it was just weird!

Weird. Very, very weird. Some hot sci-fi elements, though.

This is the best Kaidan/Rahna fanfic ever. Now I understand the Biotic Camp adventures much better.

Good characters, great plot premise, mediocre writing.

I don't usually like sci-fi books but this one is an exception. Easy to read, well described crime/love story.
