Lynxsabder "Lynx" Dackelov has been sold into slavery to a bunch of women. What you would think at first would be any guy's dream come true has turned into a nightmare for Lynx. He was starved, abused, laughed at, and worse of all...used till he couldn't get it up anymore. Lynx's only reprieve was when he was later sold to men but Lynx could never get the sound of women laughing out of his head. Because of his experiences with women. Lynx no longer wants anything to do with them.

Outcast by Cheryl Brooks is book four in the Cat Star Chronicles series. In this installment, Zetithian Lynx has been stolen from his planet at its destruction and sold into slavery. A slave of slave women, Lynx is made to share his special intimate talents with 50 harem women. At first, he enjoys the constant lovemaking, but after a while it begins to wear on him and he loses the ability to feel arousal. Kicked out of the harem, he travels on his own to find work, to earn enough money to buy la ...more

This was the first Cheryl Brooks book I’ve read and talk about sizzling. Lynx sounded so hot I could practically see the smoke whenever he and Bonnie got near each other. This book was different from most romance stories I’ve read in that the man was the traumatized and shy one and the woman had to be more of the aggressor. The reader is immediately drawn to Bonnie’s plight to find a worthy man to spend her life with and raise her child. You will hold your breath as you wait for Lynx to finally ...more
I have to admit, when I first got the book, I wasn’t too sure about it but couldn’t put it down! For not having read any of the previous books in the series, I didn’t feel as if I was missing too much. I’m now going to have to pick up the others in the series. Talk about out of this world sex! But don’t let that make you think that there’s nothing more to it because you’ll find yourself turning the pages anticipating love and hope. It will get your heart rate racing as you imagine the possibilit ...more
If it ain't broke...

Lynx was quite young when his homeworld of Zetith was destroyed and he and his commrades were sold into slavery. Not yet versed in the art of enticement his fellow males were known for he might have been thrilled to become the slave of a harem filled with females in need of his attentions. But what might have started out as a chance to learn how to give pleasure soon became anything but enjoyable. Used to the breaking point he not only suffers from impotence but a well deserv

I'm really enjoying Cheryl Brooks' futuristic series about a group of amazing men with incredible sexual powers/abilities. Grabbed your interest? Well, these men are the last of a race that whose home planet was wiped out. This group was captured and secretly sold into slavery. So far there has been three other books, each the tale of one of the survivors. The series rides the erotica line for me as the sex is graphic, plentiful, and a genuine part of the storyline. Not to mention it just makes ...more

Read for the PNR Monthly challenge read.

After I finished reading this, I had the book blues. You know how you feel after you've read a book you've enjoyed and you don't want it to end? Yea.

So this book was a very welcome surprise. I've been reading the series off and on since discovering it. It's not my usual PNR read, but more of a Sci-Fi/Fantasy. Sometimes you have to read different stuff to shake it up now and then. lol I've read the first three in the series, (so far there are ten) and I th

I read this whole book last night and have to say for just picking it up at the library and not reading any of the prior books it was really good. Throughout the book you are able to get glimpses of what happened in the piror books. I loved Lynx he is so HOT and needy and everything you don't want from a guy, but at the same time once he was able to open up to Bonnie who feel in love with him for just who he was and not anything else it was good to see Lynx caring and softening up towards her as ...more

I think this is my favorite book in this series. Lynx is just so damaged by his past. He starts out so wary of everything Bonnie does for him. I just want to cry and give him cookies and hugs (which is apparently my standard operating procedure for damaged heroes) and tell him that everything will be okay. Shh, shh. Everything will be fine, kitty. Everything will be fine.

By and large, Lynx is the draw in this book. I liked that even though he was angry and withdrawn, he did his best to help Bonn

I was bad and skipped book #3 just wasn't interested in reading the story after reading what the blurb was about, thought Outcast would be more interesting but it wasn't by much.

Sold into slavery when his planet was destroyed, Lynx was enslaved in a harem. He is a favorite due to his feline gene, which gives him remarkable sexual powers, but after ten years, Lynx is exhausted. Thrown out without a penny, Lynx is bitter and anti-female. He emigrates to a new planet but can only find a job with a
My favorite of the series so far. The Heroine who consistantly chooses the wrong boyfriend plot has been done before, but it works really together with the hate Lynx has for women. Lynx' story is simply very sad, and I confess I shed a couple of tears watching him overcome his trauma's.

The super orgastic sperm stuff still is slightly ridiculous, but because Lynx is impotent due to his trauma's for a while, the evolution of their intercouse isn't as silly as in the other books.

WOW! What an amazing story full of passion but so much heartache! When I dream about a book or find myself thinking about it during my work day because I can't wait to read it then I know it is good and this books had a tremendous impact on me.

Ms. Brooks writes some cute, clever, original stories, and I greatly enjoyed this one. I especially liked the heart-of-gold heroine with a blind spot for charming users--anybody never been there, done that? Oddly enough, what I find as the weak points of her novels are the sex scenes, and this was among the weakest. Fortunately, they were held off until the latter half of the novel until I had already formed a positive opinion of the story and characters or else I might have quit reading before ...more

I give this a 4.5-4.75. I save 5 star ratings for books i would read again....and again....and again. Outcast is so close to this i couldn't just give it a 4 star. I got this book as a free kindle download and absolutely loved it. My only regret is it is number four in this series and know I know some details of the first three. This however will not keep me from buying the kindle bundle of the first three books and thoroughly enjoying them.

As far as Outcast goes you will for sure fall for tort

After reading such a thing on the cover and in the introduction, how could I have not read this book? Come on, that sounds sooooo cheesy, it's hilarious;p

Anyway, the book wasn't as bad as I thought. It gets 3 stars within it's genre - it was a really cute smut and it actually took some time for the main characters to get together, which built up a nice tension. If you want to read s

maybe even 2.5 stars

Brooks' series of sci-fi flavored romance novels is up to a half dozen or so, of which this 4th installment was a kindle freebie. it's a good intro to the series, and I'm assuming if you like what's going on here, you'd like the rest of them. there's a lot of details about couples from presumably the first 3 books, so if you don't want to know about their inevitable HEAs, save this one until later. the otherworldly elements are mixed in with a light touch, just a bit of plane

There were so many times I wished Brooks had "shown" instead of "telling" that I found this book frustrating. And Lynx's "issue" was so easily solved! Come on.

Also, overuse of exclamation points much? Why, yes! Also, Bonnie Yells! A! Lot! and Totally! Overreacts! just to move the action along.

This series is by no means to be taken seriously. It's just a bunch of fluff, but as so it's perfect to read while being lazy on a rainy day when you just want something fun and entertaining.

reread 6/2015

The Cat Star Chronicles are pretty OTT sci-fi erotic romances, mostly kind of rompy and light, and filled with TONS, albeit repetitive, of sex.

This book, however, actually has a better story than the others (to me). It's a bit more relationship focused than 'erotic sex' focused.

Lynx is, by far, my favorite hero of the books I've read in this series.

I almost didn't download this as I didn't like the first book in the series, Slave, but the Kindle edition came up as free one day and I was honestly curious if there would be improvement since the first book or if it would feature another kind of alien. Obviously, I skipped books two and three, but I wasn't concerned about missing any plot points in a larger story arc.

So ... the major things I noted in this book:

1. The hero in this book is the same kind of cat-like alien that the hero was in th

3.5 overall, but a range from 2.5 - 4.0 if looking at only individual parts of the book.

This was a freebie on the Kindle, and though it was book #4 in the series you didn't need to read the others as long as you took the secondary characters for what they were. When I read the Prologue and you immediately jump into the sex-slave action I thought "Oh boy, here is a book that is all sex and no story". Not that I am opposed to sex in my romance novels -- not at all -- but just like any book I want

These are good erotica. They are not great, but they are good and entertaining. This one is NOT a standalone at all. They may not classify this first as erotica but they definitely have more sex and more descriptive sex than the Laurann Dohner New Species series, so most are going to put this as erotica. I classify it Erotic Scifi.

In the other books, we might see some of the old characters at the end, but in this one, we get right back into their lives and sex. I almost think that this was to pu

Lynx was enslaved for 10 years in a harem and now after being endlessly used by the harem women, he's tired and no longer likes women. He's in a bit of pickle though because he moves to a planet where he has to have a job to stay and the only job he's been told is available is working for a female farmer.

Bonnie is pregnant and the baby's father left her high & dry with the farm and no help. She hires Lynx to help out on the farm, but he doesn't like women. H

Oh, The Cat Star Chronicles. It's one of my favorite romance/erotic series. This fourth book in the series took a different perspective that I enjoyed: it was in the third person point-of-view versus the first and it had a more serious tone to it.

The story mostly followed the two protagonists, Bonnie and Lynx. Bonnie was a strong-willed person who was betrayed by the man she thought she loved. What was very interesting about her character was that she was six months pregnant at the start of the

Outcast is the fourth book in The Cat Star Chronicles by Cheryl Brooks. Each book can be read as a stand alone but the series does feature some great recurring characters.

In Outcast, Lynx has been enslaved in a harem for the last ten years. After being used and abused, he is tossed out. He takes refuge on a farming planet. The only job he can find is with a female rancher and since he is very bitter towards women he has a hard time working for her. Bonnie is doing her best to maintain her farm a

Outcast Outcast is, so far, my favorite in Cheryl Brooks' Cheryl Brooks Cat Star Chronicles series. Lynx is so damaged, and I really love my heroes damaged. He goes through the greatest transformation from broken, starving slave-survivor to hot, sexy alpha male. Unfortunately, the abuse he received during his enslavement makes him hate women. Bonnie is independent and capable and unlike any woman he's ever met. The fact that she needs his help around the farm because she's pregnant and alone mak ...more
4.5 stars.

At first being a male slave with a harem of women to please might not sound to bad. For most men having oh so many willing women to sleep or rather have sex with would be a dream come true.

However for Lynx after 10 years of harem life and the 'wonderful' treatment he received he developed a distaste for all women so much that he was sold due to their favorite toy not preforming up to par.

Then you get Bonnie who is feed up with men after her boyfriend steals away in the night with all h
